At enhanceskin, we are proud to offer an advanced range of skincare products, (including a range of all important sunscreens), from around the world to help you bring out the best in your appearance. Let’s face it when you purchase your skincare, it’s a fairly significant investment, so we thought we would share our top tips for getting the most out of them and it all starts with application!
- Watch the temperature; Moisten your face, but at the risk of sounding like Goldilocks, you don’t want the water to be too hot or too cold, you want it just right; just right means tepid!
- Most of the products we sell come with pump dispensers. Use 2 to 3 pumps of cleanser, depending on how much make up you have on. You might need more at the end of the day than the beginning.
- Removal is important. You can use a fresh facecloth (but you’ll need a new one every day) or cotton pads, we moisten these to prevent pulling at the skin.
Because most of our cleansers are PH neutral, if you are using products you’ve purchased from enhanceskin you generally don’t need to tone after cleansing. We’ll advise you when we help you select the perfect skincare prescription for you.
Apply this directly after cleansing (or toning, if necessary) both morning and night. We often recommend Aspect Dr Advanced Skin Technology Vitamin C Serum for morning or Vitamin A for night time. Application is key here, you only need one pump into the hand, slide the other hand against the one you have dispensed into and then pat over your entire face and decolletage. Application this way, means that you avoid rubbing the dispensed amount into the palms of your hands.
Specialist Eye Products.
To discover why using an eye gel is so important, take a look at this recent blog post. The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate, so don’t be tempted to pull or rub, simply apply the gel to your fingertips and pat very gently around your eyes, without applying pressure.
Moisturisers should be used as an enhancement to serums.For healthy, glowing, hydrated skin, you can’t afford to skip the serum. Apply your moisturiser the same way you apply your serum… The pump, slide and pat method!
Never forget this all important step, come summer or winter. If you have never invested in a dedicated facial sunscreen, pop in to try one. You’ll find it’s easier to apply using the same pump, slide and pat method; plus it won’t be gloopy or thick like some body sunscreens can be.
