It’s that time of year again. The festive season has come and gone, as has your skin's hydration levels. A mulled wine too many teamed with a bit of extra sugar has probably left your skin feeling dehydrated and suffering from imflammation and congestion. It’s time to get your skin back on track and help to rebuild that skin barrier.
Fear not, as we have the perfect SOLUTION and RESOLUTION for you. We have gone ahead and made it simple for you and broken it down into 5 simple steps for you to follow to achieve that New Year rejuvenation!
First and foremost, we ALWAYS recommend booking in to your local clinic or salon for a full skin consultation. Your skin changes with every season, and it’s important to leave all your skin concerns with the professional for accurate diagnosis. Remember folks – we’re dealing with cosmeceutical here, with advanced ingredients and unparalleled patened delivery systems. So to really get the most out of your skincare, it is important to be using the right products for your specific skin type.
Cleanse it off!
First and foremost. A good cleanser is the bones of all effective skincare routines. Think of it this way… how are all those good ingredients meant to penetrate skin if it is full of pollutants, sebum and other debris? It’s like taking a dry cloth to a dirty car!
We advise a good glycolic or salicylic based cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the skin and remove all impurities so that it is ready to take on any ingredients applied post cleanse. An exfoliating cleanser will really help to slough off those ghosts of Christmas past. Make sure to cleanse morning and night!
Serum, Serum, Serum!
Once the skin is thoroughly cleansed, it’s time for your serum. An opportunity to pack the skin full of active ingredients. The New Year is the perfect time to add a multivitamin to the skin. Our Vital C ACE Serum is perfect for this. Boost hydration and radiance in the skin while packing a serious antioxidative punch!
S – P – F!
If we have said this one, we have probably said it a million times. There is no point in using all of these amazing, anti – ageing, antioxidative ingredients if we are not going to protect the skin from something that is actually helping cause the damage. Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. Rain, hail or shine. The sun rises every morning and sets every evening folks, so dont be fooled! Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Our IMAGE Skincare Prevention + range is perfect to protect the skin and is also packed full of anti – ageing and antioxidative ingredients.
A shot a day, keeps the wrinkles away!
The final step is making sure you take that 360° approach and ensure you are feeding your skin from the inside out. Our YANA™ daily collagen supplement is everything your skin needs to restore collagen and flood the skin with hydration. It also helps to enhance the benefits from the rest of your topical skincare products.
H2O – Oh, Ohhh, Ohhhh!
Another tip to achieve more hydrated, plump and rejuvenated is drinking lots and lots of WATER! It’s the most accessible ingredient, and free of charge. So make sure to take full advantage and stay hydrated!
