Skin & Skincare Routine FAQ’s Melbourne

Posted on January 23, 2021

Why does my skin feel dry after I moisturize?
This can be a result of various reasons – Ensure that any cleansing products in your routine do not contain SLS. Exfoliate weekly (no SLS). Incorporate a high quality Hyaluronic Acid serum. Incorporate a higher active hydration moisturizer. See a Skin Expert to assess your skin health and ability to retain product!

Why do I need to use a cleanser?
Cleansing is integral morning and night to your skincare routine! Your skin is not able to absorb the nutrients in your products if you’re not cleaning away the make-up, dirt, and free radicals that enter the skin on any regular day – this can lead to dryness, oiliness, irritation/blemishes, and acceleration of the ageing process.

Do I need to be using a toner?
Toning is important for the skin’s acid mantle – Keeping your skin balanced on the P.H scale helps protect your skin from bacteria and sensitivity developing, and increases the skin’s ability to absorb product.

Is exfoliating important?
A build up of dead skin can lead to congestion, bacteria and clogged pores developing in the skin, and it can also hinder your product absorption! It’s important to exfoliate with a lower % chemical peel or granular exfoliant at least once a week, but be mindful of not over exfoliating as this can lead to sensitivity/stripping of the skin’s protective barrier.
