3 Healthy skincare rules from our beauty shop

Posted on August 16, 2016 Beauty shop

Your face is the first thing that you present to the world, and your skin is the very important feature to us in Torquay! Practicing proper skincare is an essential part of everyday life, and there are a variety of products that we can help you with from our beauty shop to assist the process.

  1. To start you need to look at your skin type- Are you oily, dry, sensitive or combination? Or the other way to look at it is by classification- Are you Environmentally sensitised, hyper-pigmented, problematic or reactive?

Either way a cleanser suitable to you is going to either be of a gel based type (problematic/oily) or cream based (dry, some combinations, sensitive). Cleansing should never feel ‘stripping’ and if you continue you can create more harm than good just from that first step. So if your cleanser leaves you feeling tight, ditch it and move on!

2. Then there’s your weekly exfoliant, physical with a fine grit feel or chemical with the use of enzymes and AHAs?

If you’re sensitive stay away from the physical scrubs. You don’t want to rub the beach sand all over your face whilst your bathing on the Torquay shores (like we see so many do!)- but ok for your body! For healthy looking-skin to assist with that fresh cell turnover exfoliation is very important but again it’s got to be right for you.

3. A moisturiser.. Yes using a spritzer prior is an excellent booster as well as a serum but if you’re excessively dry then a night time moisturising treatment 2-3 times per week is of great benefit. An emollient based that is enriched with antioxidants, plant oils, skin-identical ingredients that are also cell-communicating. Left on overnight will produce noticeable results within a few weeks.
