Scrupulously Clean

Number 1 rule, keep your skin clean and healthy

Weekly Mask

Once a week use, Cold Plunge Pore Mask which cools and deeply cleanses the skin without stripping. When the skin is irritated and sensitive from the face masks that we have to wear at the moment, do not use a physical scrub—even a gentle scrub—,as it will create friction on the skin.

Tone Up

Following this, use Balancing Force Toner, which controls excess oil and reduces the look of pores. Dab onto a cotton wool pad and swipe across the whole face, then use 3 fresh cotton wool pads to focus on those areas that may need extra attention for an added boost.

Say Good Night

The last step would be to use Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Crème, formulated with Bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative which helps to calm the skin. This formula works through the night, optimizing elasticity and delivering deep hydration. You will feel a light tingle as it retexturizes and smoothes out the skin.
