Do you want to take your skincare results to the next level?
Very often we tend to get stuck in a rut with our skincare routine and go into autopilot each morning and night. By adding these 3 super easy steps to your routine, you’ll boost your results and immediately start to see a noticeable difference in your skin.
Step 1- Double Cleanse!
Start with a clean slate so that the rest of your products are able to do their jobs! Removing your makeup properly is key, particularly at night before bed! Not only does sleeping in makeup cause congestion and inflammation in the skin, but free radicals cling to makeup causing a number of skin issues – including collagen breakdown. This speeds up the aging process leading to premature wrinkles, that’s why having a thorough cleanse is super important!
The best way to remove makeup is to double cleanse. This cleansing technique uses an oil-based cleanser to break up and lift makeup, followed by a second cleanser of your choice – we suggest a gel-based option like our Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser to sweep away impurities. If you have an oily skin type, don’t be put off by experiencing an oil. Like attracts like, and natural oils will not only clear makeup but also lift excess sebum from your skin’s surface.
Ready to start double cleansing? Try our Stone Crop Cleansing Oil. Infused with moisturising sunflower and jojoba oils, brightening stone crop and supercharged microgreens, this light and luxurious formula gently removes makeup and deeply cleanses to deliver dewier, softer looking skin after every use.
Step 2- Exfoliate!
Exfoliation can bring your complexion back to life, taking it from dull and tired, to glowing and healthy – but it’s a skin care step that’s often missed entirely or done incorrectly. It takes the skin approximately 28 days to renew itself naturally by shedding dead cells and generating new ones. As we age, this process takes even longer – dead cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, clogging pores and leaving it looking less than radiant. Exfoliants slough away build-up to reveal healthier skin underneath, allowing for better absorption of beneficial ingredients in the rest of your skin care routine.
Chances are you’re either not exfoliating or using a scrub with large, abrasive particles that are wreaking havoc on your skin. For a gentler alternative, we recommend our Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. This popular product contains rice powder to absorb oil, while lactic and salicylic acids exfoliate to reveal a brighter and more radiant-looking complexion.

Step 3- Add an Oil!
If you’ve never used an oil then this is the one to try! Our Facial Recovery Oil is affectionately known by fans around the world as “Liquid Gold” and you’ll soon see why. This extraordinary golden oil is one of our most popular products and holds near-cult status. One such devotee, Hollywood A-lister Cameron Diaz, recommends keeping her favourite oil in your beach bag
A drop goes a long way to relieve any dryness in your skin from the sun and water. A drop on each cheek after your shower will do wonders.
We agree and here’s why: the benefits of this miraculous facial oil extend far beyond moisturisation. This oil, made from organic and Biodynamic® ingredients, solves a whole host of problems on your face and body. Even oily skins benefit from its healing properties! A couple of drops will help with irritation, inflammation, breakouts, dryness, dehydration, AND aging. This hydrating oil tones and moisturises with olive oil and sage leaf extract, giving delicate skin a plumped-up glow. Regular use can directly affect the visible signs of aging- especially fine lines, and wrinkles. This is your skin’s new best friend and should be used daily or when you need some extra TLC no matter what the issue.

Don’t forget to use all your products down to your neck and décolletage and for best results do your skincare routine morning and night Commit to your new routine and you will see the benefits of your added steps in no time.
