Products for Combination Skin tending towards Dryness / Problem Skin that is Dry

Please note that these are guidelines only. Everybody's skin is different, and these are suggestions for you to try in order to find the perfect solution tailored to YOUR skin.

Cleansing:

  • if you wear make up use the Make Up Removing Milk (it can also be used as a regular cleanser )
  • for a gentle cleansing wash try the Gentle Face Wash. Problem Skin sufferers generally prefer a wash, although for very dry skins this is not necessary.
  • If you like a slightly heavier cream based cleanser, try the Rich Cleansing Cream, although it is not designed to remove much make up.

Toning:

  • To remove any dead and damaged skin cells, in order to maintain optimal cell turnover rates and stimulate collagen and elastin,
  • Smoother skins allow moisturisers to adhere better
  • Removal of cellular debris enable natural oils to get to the surface of the skin
  • to avoid and clear any blemishes
  • and maintain a healthy pH level for your skin.

This is all achieved in the most effective and gentle way. Our toners are given their name due to the stage they occupy in the cleanse, tone, moisturise routine, but are in fact incredibly effective exfoliators. Unlike traditional abrasive exfoliators, ours require only to be wiped across the face, and this alone will target all dead and damaged cells. More traditional exfoliation methods require a fair amount of abrasive activity and whilst they are not nearly as effective, they can damage good skin cells. Those with problem skins can also apply a drop of undiluted toner directly to spots in the morning and evening. If there is any discomfort, rinse off immediately.

We highly recommend the AHA Toner: Dry Skin for more sensitive dry skins, though some may find that dryness is alleviated over time and the AHA Toner: Combination Skin becomes more appropriate.

Moisturiser:
You can use any of the moisturisers
Protective Day Cream
Nourish & Repair Night Cream
Cell Repair & Renewal Cream (can be used day & night) this cream can be used as your normal moisturiser or can be used as a one-off if your skin requires a bit of a boost after an outdoor holiday.

If your skin is very sensitive, try the Men's Aftershave Balm, very popular with both men and women with sensitive or problem skin, as a Day Cream. For men who shave we recommend the Men's Aftershave Balm.

Treatment:
Skin Food is a highly recommended product to be applied before you moisturise, in order to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs.

Plant Serum is a perfect product for you. Not only can it be used as a daily serum for the eye area, it can also be used as a treatment for when you skin feels dry. Cleanse, tone & apply the Plant Serum in the evening once or twice a week. You can tissue off any excess, although people with drier skins will find that it is absorbed and they can add a layer of moisturiser before they go to bed. It can also be used on the chest or added to a plain aqueous cream and used all over the body. It also helps prevent scarring, if applied early enough.

The Blemish Defying Cream is a product that is suggested as an add-on to the Toner. It is advisable to see how you get on with the toner first, as some skins will clear up using only the toner. Others will find the combination of the two products helpful.
