The secret to great skin...

The secret to great skin...

Finding the right skincare products and routine can often be overwhelming and intimidating. With ads and articles often suggesting the likes of a 10-step skincare regime, $400 serums and the latest product promising eternal youth, it’s difficult to know what we really need - and what we can ignore.

Our Co-Directors Kaye Scott and Lisa Sullivan-Smith have been in the industry for more than two decades – in fact, it’s The Clinic’s 20th birthday this year – so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands with them.

They say less is more and the secret to great skin starts with your skincare regime.

A simple, preventative skincare regime consists of just three things,” explains Kaye. “A cleanser, a moisturiser and sunscreen”.

In 2014, Kaye and Lisa created a universal, day and night moisturiser for all skin types. Why? Because they had seen and treated a range of skin concerns and types over the years and every client said the same thing – they wanted something simple, quick and convenient in their skincare regime and it had to be affordable too. So Kaye and Lisa took the guesswork and complexities out of the equation and went back to basics.

The beauty of The Moisturiser is that the ingredients are able to treat and assist sensitive skin but even if you don’t suffer from specific skin concerns, it will simply hydrate, protect and improve overall skin tone; all skins take only what they need from it”, explains Lisa.

Why you need it:

  • Simultaneously firms, hydrates and protects while improving skin texture and tone
  • The formula is light enough for day time use but rich enough for night time use, non greasy and easily absorbed
  • Non-comedogenic; it won't clog pores
  • Provides superior hydration and protection against free radical damage while supporting the skin's barrier function 
  • Free from parabens, preservatives and artificial fragrance; will not irritate the skin
  • Excellent value for money. Comes stored in an airless pump meaning no wastage, right down to the very last drop

In 2017, Kaye and Lisa added The Cleansing Pad to their signature line, a nourishing and cleansing pre-soaked micellar pad that can be used as well as or instead of your daily cleanser.

It’s all about convenience”, says Kaye. “The Cleansing Pad is ideal for travel, pre and post workouts, a general refresh during the day or for a lazy cleanse after a long day. You can use it pre-cleansing in the morning or night or as your daily cleanser. It’s free of parabens and preservatives and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and never slimy”.

Why you need it:

  • Effectively removes dirt and makeup with no residue
  • Free from parabens, preservatives and artificial fragrance; will not irritate the skin
  • A gentle formula for all skin types
  • Safe to use on false eyelashes
  • Effective as an everyday cleanser, or to support your current regime
  • Twist top jar means pads never dry out and is a durable design to be taken anywhere
