Q.

Can you advise on a skincare routine for my acne prone skin?

A.

Acne at any age can be agonising. Both my sister and myself have suffered at different points in our lives, so we understand this type of skin.

Scrupulous cleaning is key to tackling acne prone skin. We would advise our  Pure Skin Face Wash both morning and evening. It’s gentle and non-drying action will clean and purify your skin without stripping natural oils.

Apply a small amount of  Balancing Face Moisturiser after cleansing especially on the cheeks to help hydrate dry patches of skin. If you experience excessive oil on your T Zone avoid that area.

Our  Congested Skin Serum should be applied to any areas of congestion and active breakouts. This calming gel speeds away blemishes and reduces redness and inflammation. You can reapply throughout the day and use under and over make-up.

Twice a week we would recommend a gently exfoliating face mask to deeply clear pores and gently resurface skin. Watch this space for our new face mask launching soon!

Remember to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated, and avoid touching and picking at your face.
