Cleans­ing

An emol­lient/ milky cleanser in the morn­ing will have sooth­ing prop­er­ties to emul­sify and clean the skin gen­tly. In the evenings, use an AHA and BHA cleanser, as th­ese con­tain fruit acids to help re­move the dirt and grime that will build up over the day.

Exfoliating

Invest in a good ex­fo­lia­tor, as it’s im­por­tant to keep skin turn­ing over and take away dead skin, and this will keep skin look­ing fresh, hy­drated and glow­ing.

Ton­ing

For acne- prone skins, use ton­ers that have sal­i­cylic acid and an­ti­in­flam­ma­to­ries, as th­ese help with red­ness and kill bac­te­ria. For other skin types, ton­ers that have pep­tides and Vi­ta­min C can help brighten the skin, re­move grease, and re­store skin’s PH bal­ance.

Mois­tur­is­ing

Use an an­tiox­i­dant, such as Vi­ta­min C E pep­tide, to pro­tect the skin against free rad­i­cal dam­age and give it a nice glow. Fin­ish with a mois­turiser sun­block. In the evening, use a retinoic acid that has a skin- peel­ing ef­fect, and per­haps a heav­ier night cream.
