Pretty on pale and medium-toned com­plex­ions, we rec­om­mend El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Ce­ramide Ul­tra Lip­stick in Petal (R210) or Clinique Pop Lac­quer Lip Colour + Primer in 05 Wink Pop (R295).

Ap­ply a mask A char­coal or clay mask, like [1] Estée Lauder Nightwear Plus 3-Minute Detox Mask ( R620), draws dirt and grease out of your pores. And now’s the best time to do one. Af­ter you’ve been pelted with hot water for eight min­utes – the av­er­age shower length – a detox­i­fy­ing mask could be ir­ri­tat­ing on your skin.

Hy­drate your hair While you let that face mask do its job, work in a hair one, like [2] Moroc­canoil In­tense Hy­drat­ing Mask ( R420). “Once your hair is wet, oils and mois­turis­ers can’t pen­e­trate it as well,” ex­plains der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Ava Sham­ban. Twist and clip your hair up.

Slough it off Ready to rinse? Hold up. “Skin plumps up in water, which flat­tens rough patches, so it’s tougher to ex­fo­li­ate wet skin,” re­veals der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Mona Go­hara. In­stead, grab your favourite scrub and spread it all over your skin while it’s still dry. We like sugar-based ones, like [3] Caribbean Tan Cin­na­mon Scrub ( R59.95). Buff your body mov­ing in con­cen­tric cir­cles work­ing from your feet up­dwards.

Now is a good time to shave, wash and sham­poo and con­di­tion your hair, since the steam from the warm water opens the hair cu­ti­cle, which helps con­di­tioner smooth each strand as much as pos­si­ble on wet hair. Plus your leg stub­ble is soft enough to shave with­out caus­ing nicks or in­growns.
