Lighter Layers

Lighter Layers

As the warmer weather approaches and we adjust our wardrobe to our summer light layers, we want to do the same with our skincare.

Having heavy layers can clog pores, cause breakouts, be uncomfortable on the skin and then once the sweat comes, it can cause makeup to look patchy and blotchy.

Wave good bye to dry, flaky winter skin. If you have been using thicker formulas over the winter months and  not exfoliating as much as you should then it’s time to scrub away buildup of unwanted product, dead and dull skin cells and unwanted environmental toxins. By exfoliating away the dead and dull skin that may have become a little too comfy on your skin it will instantly refresh your skin leaving it looking brighter, clearer and allow following products to work better on your skin.  By doing this it should make your skin look instantly better and you may not need to follow up with as many products leaving your skin looking more fresh! Try the Gatineau Peeling Expert Microdermabrasion CreamThis high-performance exfoliator is enriched with Bamboo Microgranules to effectively remove dead skin cells whilst refining the skins surface. Its non-irritating formula, blended with Vitamins E and F, is designed to encourage cellular renewal, smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles and leave the skin radiant and luminous.

Don’t forget to scrub away that winter skin on your body to as your limbs will have to face the sun very soon..

Strip back the layers and lighten up. Change your routine slightly so that you are still getting the skincare benefits that are needed for your skin type but it isn’t too heavy on your skin causing excess oils and pores to clog up. We love the Decleor Aroma Cleanse Bi-Phase Cleanser as it can be used by all skin types and cleanses the skin without leaving residue that can build up on the skin leaving additional unwanted product. The cleanser removes makeup even waterproof mascara, refreshes, softens the skin, plumps, soothes even sensitive skin and boosts the skins radiance. Follow with a lighter moisturizer in texture but that will still deliver the hydration your skin needs. For this we recommend the Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30.  A multitasking moisturiser that works with your skin’s daytime defence mode to provide Broad Spectrum SPF30 protection, boost skin’s natural luminosity, deliver lasting hydration and block 85 percent of pollutants. By opting for a moisturiser that has combined SPF and all day long hydration it will limit the amount of product you will need to apply to your skin reducing the risk of clogging pores and your skin feeling caked in products.


These products are suitable for all skin types and should help leaving your skin fresh and ready for spring.
