Skin-tention

skin-tention (noun)

When you have every intention of removing your make up before bed and looking after your skin but pass out on the sofa after a Netflix marathon.

Let's face it; this is rule number 1 when looking after your skin! Whether you’re currently wearing makeup or not (one of the few perks of living through lockdown), it’s always important to properly clean your skin. Failing to thoroughly remove the day’s dirt, grime and oil might mean more breakouts or an increase in clogged pores and your foundation might not sit as comfortably, either. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy the feeling of fresh baby soft skin?

Cleanse
A foam cleanser is a great way to deep dive into pores and remove stubborn makeup residue, our Bubble Purifying + Charcoal face mask does just that, by far the most fun face mask ever!

Exfoliate
Exfoliation helps lift away dead skin cells the biggest cause of dull lack lustre skin, and one of the reason your foundation doesn’t sit well on your face. With our skin becoming more fragile with age we should keep exfoliation to once a week and in a gentle format, our platinum peel off mask is great for a weekly exfoliation routine.

Hydrate
A lot of makeup can have a drying effect on the skin, silicone based foundations tend to cling to dry patches so it’s important to keep your skin well hydrated if you wear makeup regularly. Hyaluronic Acid is amazing for hydration as it helps the skin retain moisture.
