That feeling of fresh, glowing skin really is unbeaten. It only takes a few simple steps to achieve and takes less than 10 minutes per day. Let’s consider those important 10 minutes as time to lift your mood, spirits and make yourself look and feel like royalty.


Of course, it’s important to invest in good quality skin care products that work best for you, and everyone’s skin care routine has to be different. But if your skin is feeling dull and dry, try these steps that we recommend:


  1. Use our Black soap foaming facial cleanser on your skin- it’s perfect for that freshly washed feeling, giving you a gentle glow that brightens your skin.
  2. Then, apply a toner- This helps smooth  skin tone and contains glycolic acid which contributes towards toning and exfoliation.  It really sets the tone for your skincare routine in the morning, leaving it bright and balanced!
  3. Next, apply some Vitamin e oil. Oil application is such an important step in looking after your skin. The vitamin e allows your skin to stay soft and hydrated for a longer period of time, and of course, makes it feel super soft
  4. Finally, add a tiny amount of moisturizer to different areas of your face, and rub it in gently to get that lush, fresh and healthy feeling.


Oily skin 


Embrace the oils!


You may think that having ‘oily skin’ is a bad thing, but actually, oil is our friend when it comes to skin!  It’s the complete opposite of what you thought, right? But getting rid of all those natural oils could lead to sebum overproduction making your skin break out in the future. Try adding some oils to your daily skin care routine. For example, Argan oil, Moroccan oil and Coconut oil reduce  the amount of oil production in the future to make your skin more balanced further down the line. Tea tree and peppermint oil are great for blemishes but should be used with a carrier oil to balance the skin.


So, 4 easy steps to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.


  1. Cleanse with a gel wash of your personal choice to get rid of any dirt, especially after exercise. 
  2. Secondly, use a skin toner to remove any dead skin cells. 
  3. Next, apply a small amount of moisturizer on your face and gently massage into your skin (moisturizer is your friend, not your foe!)
  4. Finally, apply a very small amount of a retinoid-based serum, especially if you have breakouts or acne problems. 

 


Keep it simple and consistent and your skin will transform, just watch!
