Top tips to bring your skin back to health
Re-establish a daily routine.
Consistency is key. Make sure you have time each day to double cleanse and use a serum and moisturiser. It doesn’t take long, and you will see real results. Click here to read our expert guides “Secrets to healthy skin” and “Cleansing masterclass”.
Exfoliate and masque.
Sloughing away dead skin cells is essential to skin health. If you have had less time for yourself over the holidays you may have neglected this step of your routine. Exfoliate now and use a masque to kick start your routine again.
Get your diet back on track.
It is easy to overindulge whilst on holiday, or whilst feeding the whole family. Catering to everyone else’s requests often means we eat more processed foods, and may mean sugary foods and alcohol creep into our daily lives. Take stock and return to a fresh, healthy, rainbow diet and you will see the return to glowing skin.
Get back into healthy sleep patterns.
Sleep is critically important for our physical and mental wellbeing and our skin is the first organ to show the signs of sleep deprivation. Get back into a good sleep routine and feel and see the benefits. Click here to read our expert guide “Beauty Sleep Is Not A Myth!”
