BEAUTY cleanse Cleansers are an essential part of a basic skincare routine. They wash off makeup, dirt and oil and leave the skin feeling clean, smooth and oil free. Your skin should be cleansed preferably twice a day – in the morning and in the evening. There are cleansers for every skin type: if you’re prone to blocked pores, use gel formulations; for delicate skin, use milky products. Both gels and milky products usually can be washed off. For dry skin, use cream products, which generally are wiped off. If using a cream cleanser, you probably will need to use a toner afterwards. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 1.

exfoliate Exfoliation removes the dead surface cells which contribute both to dryness and oiliness and can cause blocked pores and problems like acne. Exfoliation also stimulates the circulation. Scrubs treat the surface of the skin and help unclog pores, while exfoliants remove surface cell debris and leave skin fresher and looking brighter. Common types contain alpha hydroxy acids and glycolic acids, found in plant extracts. It is essential to exfoliate regularly at home, but nothing beats a professional treatment which will leave your skin glowing and fresh - well worth the expense. 7. endota spa organics Atmica & Menthol Recovery Scrub 250g, $40, 8. endota spa organics Daily Renewal Exfoliant 90ml, $45, 9.
