Back To Basics Skincare: Everything You Need For Your Skin Type

Skincare Routines for Your Skin Concern 

Caring for your skin is one of the best things you can do for yourself, in both the short term and long term. But, of course, that doesn’t mean it’s an easy route. Beginning your skincare journey can be confusing, and for some, it doesn’t seem to get any less confusing as time goes on.        

Although, one thing that will help is knowing what your skin type is and what your concerns are.

Whether that’s dry skin, oil or combination skin or aging skin - that’s something out there for everyone.

Saying that, let’s strip it back to basics and talk about the necessities for each type. Ideal if you want to strip back your skincare routine or you’re ready to nail down your core products.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is a relatively common skin condition which can be attributed to any number of factors. Because dry skin doesn't produce enough oil so skin feels tight, brittle, lacks elasticity, it can sometimes feel rough to touch and can be flakey or itchy.  

Cleanser: IMAGE Ageless Total Facial Cleanser

IMAGE is up there with the cream of the crop when it comes to skincare brands. A daily cleanser that exfoliates, gently removes make up & tones for ultimate skin balance. One of their top cleansers, this is a hero product because it suits normal/combination skin types, aging, oily, and can even be used as a pre-treatment for chemical treatments.  

Moisturiser: IMAGE Vital C Hydrating Repair Creme

Another IMAGE pick, the Vital C Hydrating Repair Creme is an antioxidant rich emollient formula that is Images most remarkable crème to date! Reduce the visible effects of stress, fatigue, smoking & other dehydrating environmental aggressors. 

SPF: Avène Very High Protection Tinted Sun Cream SPF50+

Ideal for dry and sensitive skin, the Avène Very High Protection Tinted Sun Cream SPF50+ is a non-sticky, light and tinted formula, easy to apply and long-lasting, it protects against UVB and UVA rays and even blue light from screens.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is usually characterised by a shiny or even a greasy appearance and can often result in enlarged pores, blackheads, pimples and even blemishes if not treated correctly. 

Cleanser: Murad Blemish Clarifying Cleanser

The Murad Blemish Clarifying Cleanser is an active product that works to reduce oiliness and fight against blemishes and breakouts, while simultaneously balancing oil and preventing future breakouts. Use two to three times a week as a deep cleanse. 

Moisturiser: SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture

SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture is a lightweight moisturiser developed for normal or oily skin types. Enriched by a combination of natural botanical extracts including Vitamin E, cinnamon and ginger, this product hydrates and nourishes the skin without leaving it feeling greasy, as well as helping to reduce pore size.  

SPF: IMAGE PREVENTION+ Daily Matte Moisturizer SPF 30

The ideal moisturiser for everyday with broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection. Protects the skin daily from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays, it also primes the skin while minimising shine and leaving a soft matte finish.

Combination Skin

Combination Skin is a combination of multiple skin types as a result you will experience both oily and dry patches. You can experience mild breakouts and dryness at the same time, including clogged pores and occasional mild acne. These blemishes mostly occur in the t-zone area (not always) and your cheeks and jawline will feel dry. Your makeup can sometimes look patchy and seasonal changes in the skin such as oily in the summer and dryer in the winter is another common characteristic.

Cleanser: IMAGE Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser

With green tea and chamomile, the Cleanser: IMAGE Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser

works to lift away makeup and impurities. It balances the PH of your skin so you don’t need a toner. A mix of comfrey, calendula and rich botanicals delivers essential nutrients to restore the skin’s natural balance.

Moisturiser: Murad Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel

With innovative technology that interrupts communication so bacteria can’t form a group and cause an imbalance. The result? Your microbiome stays balanced, and you see clearer, hydrated, and healthier-looking skin.

SPF: Embryolisse Lait Creme Multi-Protection Moisturising Cream SPF

As well as a beautiful SPF for every day, the Embryolisse Lait Creme works perfectly as a makeup base or after shave cream to moisture and protect even the most sensitive of skin. Must have 7 in 1 face cream for broad spectrum protection with an invisible streak free finish with no white marks.

Aging Skin

As we age our skin becomes thinner, loses fat and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. What’s then needed is the correct ingredients to feed the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin. The key to slowing down the aging process? Protection against UV damage. 

Cleanser: SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Cleanser Gel

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Cleanser Gel combines cleansing agents with active ingredients to gently remove excess oils and makeup from the skin. It helps to decongest pores, smooth irregularities and brighten the appearance of dull looking skin, leading to overall improvement in skin tone and texture.

Moisturiser: ASAP Advanced Hydrating Moisturiser

With key ingredients such as Vtamin C, CoEnzyme Q10, Green Tea, Noni Fruit and Ceramides, these are powerful antioxidants that help to prevent free radical damage and reduce the visible signs of skin aging.  This light formula strengthens the skin's capillary network, so used in conjunction with a high SPF everyday, is perfect for anyone who suffers with broken capillaries on the face.

SPF: SkinCeuticals Ultra Facial UV Defense SPF 50

SkinCeuticals Ultra Facial UV Defense SPF 50 provides high, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, as well as simultaneously hydrating and moisturising the skin. Its lightweight, hydrating formula means it is suitable for daily use and under makeup, and can be used by all skin types.
