One of the key skin lessons we learnt through the last lockdown is that consistency and adjusting your skin care products was paramount to keeping your skin healthy, balanced, and rejuvenated. As we have entered our second lock down and in clinic treatments are not possible it’s time to elevate your at home skin care routine. You can achieve this through keeping in line with Clinics philosophy of clean, clinical, and simple.
Step 1) Double Cleanse
Elevating your skin care routine starts with your basics by introducing a double cleanse. The benefits of double cleansing are that it prevents sebum and bacteria build up which often result in breakouts and skin irritation and of course the new dreaded maskne. Start your double cleanse with an oil-based cleanser. This will help move oil-based dirt, makeup up and sebum. The second cleanse is where you can introduce a cleanser specific for your skin concerns. Elevate your cleanser by introducing an active cleanser, such as Cosmedix purity clean. The benefit of an active cleanser that it delivers the ingredients deeper into the skin to help remove dead skin cells, remove excess oil, and helps to restore the skin.

Step 2) Introduce Niacinamide into your routine:
The next step in elevating your skin care during lockdown is introducing products that are going to help strengthen and support your skin. A vitamin that is key in preventing maskne, dry and irritated skin is vitamin b3, also known as niacinamide. Niacinamide helps to reduce the appearances of skin blemishes and congestion while balancing the bodies natural sebum production. By this vitamin strengthening the skins barrier its helps prevent the skin from losing moisture and therefore keeping the skin hydrated. Our top picks for vitamin B3 include.

Step 3) Moisturise!
The final basic to enhance this lock down is your moisturiser. Not all skin types can use the same the same moisturiser. If your feeling dry you want to look for a rich, nourishing moisturiser such as The Moisturiser by Scott and Sullivan and if your experiencing breakouts look for an oil free moisturiser such as the ultra-light moisturiser by Aspect Dr.
Once you have the correct moisturiser for your skin you can then elevate your moisturising experience. You can achieve this through mixing the Cosmedix pure c mixing crystals into your moisturiser. By introducing the versatility of vitamin c to your moisturiser it’s going to deliver powerful age defying, detoxifying, and brightening results to your skin.
