Skin hungry for special treatment?
Pamper your face with a mask once or twice a week. Read our guide to find your match.
Toners, serums, oils – the order to apply skincare products can be totally overwhelming. For the best skincare routine, your chosen set of products must layer up safely and effectively, and cater specifically for your skin type.
So here it is: our step-by-step guide to the whens, whats and whys of building a daily skincare routine. Ready? Let’s dive in...
Tea tree oil has almost mythical skincare status, long thought to have powerful purification properties. The facial wash in our Tea Tree range is the standout choice to help reveal less oily, clearer-looking skin.
Dealing with an oily T-zone, dry patches and blemishes all at the same time? Lucky you. Combination skin needs extra care, and for that we hail our Seaweed Cleansing Gel Wash, designed to leave skin feeling pure, fresh and clean while reducing shine.
Our luxe camomile cleanser is a fan favourite for a reason. Magically melting away makeup and grime, it cleanses dry, sensitive skin with the most delicate of touches, leaving your face feeling soft, moisturised and clean.
What is ‘normal skin’ anyway? Not too oily, not too dry – not too anything, essentially. All skin needs cleansing with love, however. And for that we’d recommend the comforting embrace of our Vitamin E cleanser, to help leave skin feeling soft and refreshed.
Enriched with Community Fair Trade tea tree oil from Kenya, this vegan toner will help remove excess oil. It can be used every day, too, as it won’t dry out your skin. Pure pore perfection.
For skin that’s a bit oily and a bit dry, try our harmonious alcohol-free seaweed toner, infused with mineral-rich seaweed from the fantastically named Roaring Water Bay in Ireland. Wave goodbye to grime.
Luscious aloe is our pick to help calm and soften dry, sensitive skin. A refreshing swipe of this toner will help delicate facial skin feel replenished with moisture, so you can be your best beautiful self.
Even those with ‘normal skin’ still need to dole out some TLC. This gentle hydrating toner is enriched with vitamin E and wheatgerm oil, and slots in seamlessly to most skincare routines.
Serums are little droplets of delight enriched with powerful skincare ingredients. Traditionally serums are water-based but with a slightly jelly consistency. Drops of Light™ Brightening Serum is made to tackle uneven skin tone and tired-looking skin.
Think of essences as more fluid formulas, still infused with clever active ingredients. Drops of Youth™ Essence-Lotion contains three plant stem cells: edelweiss, sea holly and criste marine, and is enriched with Community Fair Trade aloe vera leaf juice and moringa seed oil.
Precious oils have a long, distinguished history. They can zero in on skincare concerns, while adding to skin’s natural moisture barrier. Oils of Life™ Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil combines precious cold-pressed seed oils: black cumin, camellia and rosehip.
With a lightweight texture to absorb quickly, gels fit nicely into morning skincare routines to help refresh tired-looking eyes. Oils of Life™ Eye Cream Gel was created to leave the eye contour looking more radiant, and its skin smoother.
Concentrates are chock-a-block with active ingredients for a multitude of benefits. With its innovative roller ball applicator, Drops of Youth™ Eye Concentrate helps refresh the eye area to leave your peepers looking less tired and eye bags appearing reduced.
Lightweight and non-sticky creams that leave a smooth surface for makeup, day creams are a daytime dream. As a moisturiser applied as part of your morning skincare routine, they help set your skin up with the nourishing moisture it needs for the rest of your day. But remember – winter or summer, rain or shine, always follow up with dedicated sunscreen.
For a multitasking boost, some face moisturisers are bolstered with SPF to reduce exposure to nasty UVA and UVB rays. Adding extra SPF protection is always a good idea, though (as is reading our article about protecting your skin from the sun). SPF moisturisers cater to all types of skin – and they’re made especially for your precious face. Happy days!
