Oils build up overnight and there­fore a morn­ing cleanse is nec­es­sary to clean the slate. As long you’re fol­low­ing a good night-time rou­tine, the morn­ing cleanse should be gen­tle with a milk or cream-based prod­uct –It’s easy to over-strip the skin with harsh, dry cleansers. AHAs (al­pha hy­droxy acids) are a class of chem­i­cal com­pounds de­rived from plants or milk prod­ucts to help clear blem­ishes, hy­drate the skin and lighten pig­ment spots by loos­en­ing one to sev­eral lay­ers of dead cells cling­ing to the skin’s sur­face. Vi­ta­min C is nec­es­sary for the pro­duc­tion and main­te­nance of col­la­gen, and is a po­tent an­tiox­i­dant that can neu­tralise free rad­i­cals in skin. It pro­vides a range of ben­e­fits, from evening out skin tone, shield­ing skin from the vis­i­ble im­pacts of pol­lu­tion, and sig­nif­i­cantly boost­ing hy­dra­tion. SPF is cru­cial all year round. UVA and UVB rays are the most dam­ag­ing and ageing for skin. “With re­peated sun dam­age over time, the DNA of the dam­aged cells be­comes dis­torted, lead­ing to ab­nor­mal pig­men­ta­tion like brown­ish patches on the skin,” ex­plains Tracey Beeby, global skin ed­u­ca­tor for Ul­traceu­ti­cal.
