A Skincare Routine Guide Featuring SkinSense
To achieve and maintain healthy skin, following a good skincare routine is key.
SkinSense is a brand that combines new technology with the highest-grade concentration of unique active ingredients. The brand uses innovative lamellar technology to lock in active ingredients across all products. They provide a range of skincare products that tackle most skin concerns.
As part of this week’s Mindful Beauty Edit, we have an exclusive brand takeover from SkinSense with products that you can easily incorporate in both your morning and evening routines. If you’re looking to start a skincare routine featuring SkinSense products, we’ve put together an easy guide on how to do it the right way.
Step 1: Gentle Cleansing Balm
Always start your routine by cleansing your skin to get rid of any dirt, sweat or impurities. SkinSense’s Gentle Cleansing Balm thoroughly cleanses your skin and removes traces of makeup. The balm transforms from a nourishing balm to a lightweight oil that is gentle enough for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
To use it, gently massage the balm on dry skin until its texture completely melts into an oil. Gently wipe it off with a warm, damp face cloth. You can use this as your morning cleanser or as a first cleanser that’s a part of your double cleansing routine at night.
Step 2: Targeted Wrinkle Defence or Retinol Serum
If you’re looking to target signs of ageing, it’s best to start incorporating treatments in your routine that can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
SkinSense’s Targeted Wrinkle Defence is a lightweight serum that targets visible signs of ageing. Thanks to its metal ball applicator, this serum also gives your skin cooling and soothing benefits.
Retinol is also an effective ingredient to help promote skin cell turnover to reveal a fresher and younger-looking complexion. If you want to get started on using retinol, try the brand’s Retinol Serum. Formulated with an innovative double encapsulation of pure retinol at a 0.3% concentration, this serum features helps stimulate skin cell renewal. It also helps improve an uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
If retinol is new to your routine, start by introducing this Retinol Serum to your evening routine slowly and use it once a week before building up to 2-3 times a week. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen when using this serum as retinol makes your skin more sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.
Step 3: Highly Active Day Cream or Highly Potent Night Cream
The last and most important step of your skincare routine should be your moisturiser. Applying a moisturiser day and night is key as it helps keep your skin plump, hydrated and locks in moisture.
In your morning routine, use SkinSense’s Highly Active Day Cream before applying your sunscreen. This day cream is formulated with the brand’s signature ingredient Linefill™ that helps increase the production of lipids in your skin, revealing firmer skin overtime.
As the last step of your evening routine, go for SkinSense’s Highly Potent Night Cream to seal in all the moisture. This night cream is rich in antioxidants and vitamins that work to maintain your skin’s moisture barrier and repair your skin overnight.
