SkinFit September: Nailing your basics

07.09.2021



SkinFit September is all about getting your skin in shape for the warmer months ahead. During a time where there has been so much stress and negativity in our lives, we’d like to bring our skincare lovers together to all work towards a common goal. 



HOW CAN YOU GET INVOVLED WITH SKINFIT SEPTEMBER? 


At the beginning of September, we want everyone to identify a skin goal that will help you feel confident in your skin. You might want to: 


- Rehydrate your skin? 


- Decongest your skin? 


- Lose those fine lines and wrinkles? 


- Overhaul your daily skincare routine? 


Each week we will focus on different parts of your regime to work towards that goal, so it is achievable and you will actually see results at the end of the 4 weeks! 


Tell us your concern via @skinbytheclinic and we will send you an exclusive gift! Share your progress, your learnings or success each week and tag @skinbytheclinic or use #skinfitseptember so we can celebrate with you! 



Watch Phoebe, one of our clients, talk through her skin goals for SkinFit September:








LETS START BY NAILING THE BASICS


A great complexion starts with the right basics. Here at The Clinic we truly believe that less is more when it comes to skincare, and that’s why a vital first step in any regime is cleansing. Cleansing removes dead skin cells, congestion and impurities, prepares the skin for other products to come and enhances the absorption of serums and moisturisers. 


THE THREE MAIN BENEFITS OF CLEANSING:


1. TO REMOVE BUILD UP 


Throughout the day, the skin on your face is exposed to bacteria, pollutants, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells. Daily cleansing removes these impurities and gives the skin a fresh, clean and healthy look. 



2. TO MAINTAIN CLEAR SKIN 


Tiny glands under our skin produce oil called sebum, which protects the skin from the outside world. These glands then use hair follicles within the skin as a pathway, allowing the oil to reach the skins surface to form a barrier that prevents the penetration of bacteria or other harmful agents. Excessive dirt build up on the surface can cause blockages of the follicle, trapping sebum, sweat, and dead skin cells. Daily cleansing is a must to ensure skin is clear of blockages and maintains a fresh, plump glow. 



3. TO BOOST HYDRATION 


There’s a reason we’re encouraged to drink two litres of water a day! Hydration is just as important for our skin as well as our nutrition and health. The secret to hydrated skin is to find a product that not only moisturises but also prolongs hydration, resulting in younger-looking skin and enhancing the skin’s natural repairing process. Dehydrated skin looks and feels rough, wrinkled and aged. Cleansing helps manage PH levels of the skin, enabling sufficient water and product retention. 



Using the wrong cleanser can really harm the skin and result in a swallowed or dull complexion. So, just like we often do with our homes and wardrobes with a change of season, it’s the perfect time for a skincare clean out and upgrade. With Spring upon us, it’s out with the old, in with the new. To celebrate the change of season we’re offering 20% off all cleansers: USE CODE CLEANSE20
