Every woman’s skincare regime is different. Yours might include a drop of luxury facial oil, a scoop of rich cream and a spritz of refreshing toner. Maybe there’s a hydrating serum or a décolletage lift in there too. Meanwhile, your girlfriend only uses one or two inexpensive products that sit beside baby wipes and a toothbrush in her bathroom, and yet she has really great skin.
Both of these lifestyle choices are subjective. Some prefer a low-maintenance routine while others enjoy the sensation of applying myriad textures to their skin. But which of these scenarios is the right one for you? Should you be using more or less products?
The jury is still out on what the universal care routine is, but we’ve broken down the essential steps.
If you only do one thing for your skin, you must cleanse it. World-renowned facialist Eve Lom’s entire skincare line revolves around the art of cleansing – it’s good for your chakras.
If your skin type is oily, reach for a water-soluble cleanser, like DHC’s Deep Cleansing Oil, to wipe away environmental pollution, debris, make-up and excess sebum.
If you’re the sensitive type, choose Erno Laszlo’s Sensitive Cleansing Set – a duo of skin care treatments expertly formulated with advanced technologies, antioxidants and essential vitamins to create a bespoke regime.
