If bottles and tubs fall out of your bathroom cabinets every time you open the door, then it may be time for you to consider an overhaul of your beauty routine. With so many different products on the market, it can be tempting to buy any new potion that offers to work miracles on your complexion. Over time, however, you may just end up with a hefty collection of creams and lotions that are not necessarily the most effective way to take care of your skin.
So, what do you actually need to make sure you are looking after your complexion?
- Cleanser: make sure you choose the Dermalogica cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type. If you want a daily deep clean, use Precleanse before your usual cleanser.
- Toner: Dermalogica’s toners are designed to restore moisture, soothe and prepare the skin for optimal moisture absorption.
- Exfoliator: it is important to remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface in order to prevent them from congesting pores and causing blemishes. Exfoliating will also improve the skin’s surface texture and maximise the absorption of any skin treatment or moisturiser.
- Moisturiser: there is no point having several moisturisers; you need a lighter SPF moisturiser for the day time and a richer, more nourishing one for night-time repair.
Of course, at times your skin may suffer from particular problems that need specific treatment and extra products, but if you use good quality, effective products in the right way you should not need to fill your shelves with hundreds of bottles!
