All skin needs to look and feel healthy with our ever changing climate and there's nothing better than making time for an essential routine to give our skin a good cleansing, toning and moisturising for both men and women alike.
Here are some great tips and products for the women.
A good routine for cleansing the skin is essential for not only removing makeup but also the dirt and grime that builds up throughout the day. All of which can block your pores which in turn will lead to an outbreak in spots or acne. To maintain the results that a good routine will give, you should ideally cleanse twice a day. Be mindful though that any more than twice, can actually strip the skin of all its natural oils, leaving your skin with dry patches for those with already dry skin, and for those with naturally oily skin, it will make it even oilier. Your glands will become more active to replace what you are essentially taking away.
And remember to always wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water before starting to do anything with your face as I'm sure we all know by now that our hands are the biggest source of dirt and grime.
Firstly, start by removing your eye makeup like mascara, eye liner and eye shadow using cotton wool or those special cotton pads by applying a few blobs of cleansing lotion. My favourite at the moment is the Time Reversing SkinGenist Multi-Cleanser. It has a luxurious feel to it and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth.

Apply the pad or cotton wool with the cream on to your eyes and wipe very gently from centre to edge of each eye making sure all eye makeup is removed. Then using a fresh piece wipe gently underneath to remove any residue that may be left.
Then you will need to remove the makeup from the rest of your face, and the beauty of using the SkinGenist Multi-Cleanser is that you can use this all over the face to remove all of your make-up. So generously apply the lotion to the rest of your face, ie. your nose, forehead, cheeks, chin, hairline and around the top of your neck. Pay particular attention to the areas that have deeper lines or creases where blackheads are likely to appear, such as the nose, near to where your ears meet your face, around the lips and neck as this is where the make-up is more likely to have built up more. Then once the cream has been massaged in thoroughly, using a fresh piece of cotton wool or pad, start to gently wipe away the cream from your face. Work from outside in towards to centre of your face to avoid getting the lotion in your hair.
Now we have a nice clean, fresh feeling face to move onto the rest of your routine.
When we tone the skin, it removes all the dead skin cells from your face that have built up over time. Not very glamorous, I know but it happens to us all I'm afraid. Toning also removes all the dirt and cleansing lotion that is left behind from step one. It will help to firm the skin and keep it clean and clear by leaving only the new layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. Again, apply the toner using cotton wool or cotton face pads and lightly apply to all areas of the face that we have just previously cleansed.
A great toner that I use on a very regular basis is from the Pure Nature range, purely because the Aloe Vera extracts have a wonderful calming effect of the skin.

As mentioned before in this blog, with the elements we face today, our skin can be left exposed and begin to lose its natural moisture and elasticity leaving your skin very dry and uncomfortable. And this where a good quality moisturising cream is perfect.
If we don't moisturise on a daily basis, those wrinkles start to make an appearance and we all want to avoid those where possible. Our celebrity make-up artist Gary Cockerill was heard recently at one of our exclusive events saying how important it was to prepare your skin for when it reaches maturity by starting early and so I have started using the Time Reversing SkinGenist Day & Night Creams. With the day creams having the additional bonus of an SPF 15 for extra protection.

When you moisturise, as well as forming a barrier to the elements, you replenish the skins natural moisture which help can prevent dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. Unless your skin is very dry, always try to use as light a moisturiser as you can.
Simply apply moisturizer lightly to your face using your fingers. Gently rub the cream into your forehead and work outwards from the center. Apply the cream around the eyes and massage into your cheeks and around your jaw line, onto your chin, nose and mouth. Its also a good idea to apply to your neck and throat. Be mindful of the amount you're applying though, if the cream is too heavy or you put too much on, it will sit heavily, and prevent your skin from breathing by clogging up the pours.
Use the correct creams also, for day-time or night-time routines.
