YOUR SKIN TYPE MATTERS

Not sure of your skin type? Make sure you check out my ‘DYI skin type test’ video on IGTV.  We all know using the wrong products can worsen our skin conditions like acne, dryness, redness and various skin concerns. Thus, it is extremely important to know your skin type to determine the right products for you.

HOW TO BUILD YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE

First and foremost, a daily skincare routine can help you maintain overall skin health and improve specific concerns like breakouts, dryness, redness and etc.. A daily skin care routine has four basic steps in the morning and 3 at night.

  1. Cleansing: Choose a cleanser that doesn’t leave your skin tight after washing. Cleanse your face no more than twice a day, or just once is enough if you have sensitive skin or if you don’t wear makeup. Avoid that squeaky-clean feeling because that means your skin’s natural oils are gone. Our Purifying Oil Cleanser effortlessly cleanse yet doesn’t strip your skin’s natural oil.
  2. Serum: A serum with a good dose of vitamin C will help brighten your skin and smooth out skin’s texture for that natural glow. Our Afterglow face serum contain a good dose of vit C from Kakadu plum (an Australian native plant that have 50x more vitamin C than oranges).
  3. Moisturiser: Even oily skin needs moisturiser, but use one that is light to midweight, and non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) if you are prone to breakout. Our Hydrating Face Cream is midweight, non-comedogenic and have just the right balance for both oily and dry skin.
  4. Sunscreen: Apply sunscreen with at least SPF30, 15 mins before heading outdoors. Remember to apply sunscreen everyday even when you are not directly exposed to the sun.

Choose products that fit your skin type and sensitivity and remember to read the labels.

Start with a basic and simple routine and see how your skin reacts. Once you’re comfortable, you can add extra products such as exfoliants, masks, and spot treatments to boost your skin’s health.

Don’t forget to patch test new products especially if you suspect you have sensitive skin.

HOW TO PATCH TEST

  1. Apply small amount of product on your wrist or inner arm
  2. Wait 24 hrs to see if there’s a reaction
  3. If an allergic reaction occur, discontinue product.

An allergic reaction may include irritation, redness, small bumps, or itchiness. If you notice these symptoms, wash the area you tested with water and mild soap.

5 ESSENTIAL SUMMER SKINCARE TIPS

January 07, 2020

The Australian blazing sun and the scorching heat can be unforgiving, especially to your skin. Increase in temperatures during the summer months, combined with humidity and heat, can increase the activity of the sebaceous glands. This makes oily skin appear oilier and dry skin appear rough and patchy. The intensity of the sun’s rays can cause sunburned skin which relate directly to ageing and cancer. The heat can also cause more pores to open, which can get clogged with dirt and oil, trapping bacteria, causing acne, pimples, and blemishes on the face.
