Below is the routine we would recommend people with dry/acne-prone to start on. Once we see how your skin responds, we can start to edit, tweak or add to this.
Please note, if you have oily/acne-prone skin - the best routine for you can be found here.
Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
Thoroughly cleanse the skin in the evening by applying a generous amount of cleanser, massaging gently and then remove using the Dual-Effect Sensitive Skin Cloth. Dampen the cloth and remove the cleanser with the soft terry side only if your skin is particularly hypersensitive to ensure any residue from the cleanser is removed. The cleanser is a detergent-free formula and bursting with Omega 3 and vitamins so will clean the skin thoroughly without stripping away the natural protective oils of your skin.
Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic
After cleansing, spritz your face with the skin tonic restoring the exact pH and biochemical balance of healthy skin. Many people skip using a toner but it's a vital part of the routine helping to lock-in an extra layer moisture for longer as well as nourishing the skin with essential vitamins and minerals.
Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
We find it's best to leave your skin to restore and regenerate as naturally as possible overnight using a facial oil or serum, rather than a cream. For dry/acne-prone skin, we recommend using a combination of the two products below. On three to four evenings a week, apply 1-3 drops of the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil to the face and neck after toning.
Copaiba & Zinc Perfect Balance Blemish Serum
On the other three to four evenings, apply this serum to your skin. The Copaiba & Zinc Blemish Serum restores calm and clarity to acne-prone skin and helps reduce sebum production by up to 65%. Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties improve the appearance of persistent blemishes by up to 72%, while maintaining the moisture barrier to prevent flaky skin.
Spritz over the face with the Lotus & Orange Blossom BioAffinity Tonic. There is no need to use the cleanser again in the morning unless you feel the need to.
Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream
Apply 1-2 pumps of moisturiser to the skin directly after toning. This day cream is packed full of skin-nourishing ingredients Vitamins A, D & E and Omegas 3 & 6. It is a deeply penetrating formula to keep skin hydrated all day long.
Kukui & Jojoba Bead Exfoliator
This is a gentle and effective mechanical exfoliator. The completely spherical jojoba wax beads will buff away dead skin cells and help to remove impurities that have built up on the skin's surface. The beads are suspended in Kukui Oil to moisturise and condition sensitive skin. Apply a small amount to dry skin and rub in a circular motion one to two times a week. Once the exfoliator is applied across your face, wet hands and rub exfoliator further into the skin. This should create a milky, creamy lather which can then be easily removed with a cloth.
Copaiba AHA Mask
Once a week, and not on the same evenings as you exfoliate, apply this mask to dry skin and leave for about 5-10 minutes before removing with a cloth.
Our skin takes about 28 days to renew itself so for best results, try this routine consistently over 3-4 weeks before changing anything unless your skin reacts badly to a product in which case you should stop using this immediately.
