GET A SKIN DETOX FROM THE OUTSIDE IN
Did you know your facial skin is constantly exposed to bacteria, pollutants, dirt and dead skin cells on a daily basis? Daily facial washing removes these impurities to keep the skin clean and fresh and replenishes lost hydrating elements, in turn allowing other products to penetrate the skin much more easily.
However, besides using cleansing wipes and skin cleanser, it is important to deep cleanse your skin regularly. What this means is to ensure the confined layers of the epidermis is cleansed thoroughly to prevent clogged pores, bacterial infections or pigmentation.
Some of the key things you should do to make sure your skin gets detox-ed from the outside in.
When we talk about cleansing correctly, one of the key thing most of our customers forget is that it must be able to match your skin type. For example, if your cleanser is too stripping and leaves you dry and irritated, then you are most likely using cleansers that are too harsh. Aggressive cleansers can cause sebum production, making your skin oilier than it be on its own. If your cleanser is too rich, like oil cleansers, in may leave a residue behind that clogs your pores. Look for products that are PH balanced. With the different types of cleansers, it really depends on the purpose its suppose to serve and your skin type. If you have normal to oily skin, gels and gentle foams will be the best choices to cleanser dirt and sebum from an oiler complexion without leaving you stripped. If you have normal to dry-skin, then you should consider creams, lotions, foams and milks that are designed to cleanse gently while keeping your complexion hydrated.

This treatment uses a 5-step system to lighten stubborn pigmentation, brown spots and acne scar marks for a clear, bright and uniform complexion.

Peel It Away
Peels can make your skin and skincare products work better. Facial peels involve the application of AHA/BHA to exfoliate skin. The acids slough off the top layer of skin, revealing newer, more youthful skin. Your skin-care products will work better too as there are no dead cells impeding their penetration. Depending on your skin’s needs, you can always opt for a gentle Milk Peel or a more intense Chemical Peel.

While regular cleansing is important, there are some common mistakes that many of our customers face in their daily skincare routines:
Over-cleansing the skin – Washing the face too many times instead of the recommended twice a day may lead to very dry skin. Harsh cleansers – Cleansers with harsh ingredients such as acid-based cleansers may irritate the skin and strip the skin’s natural barrier.Cleansing device – Overusing a cleansing device can lead to excessive dryness, redness, irritation and broken capillaries, especially so for those with sensitive skin types.Over-exfoliating the skin can result in free-radical damage and premature skin ageing, destroying healthy skin cells.
