Start by laying a warm flannel over the skin for at least 5 minutes to open pores and get skin ready for treatment. Try using Dermalogica’s Pre Cleanse Face Wash to remove any excess oil and dirt. Follow this by Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant – this is fantastic daily face scrub which doesn’t scratch over the skin’s surface. Its powdery rice based formula activates into a milky lather when mixed with water, allowing peptides to eat away dead skin cells.
Follow this with a soothing face mask like Dermalogica’s Ultra Calming Relief Mask which calms and cools the skin. And of course all the usual codswallop that’s got so much truth to it but doesn’t ever seem as easy to put into practice – drink more water, get more sleep and stop picking your skin with Society of Cosmetics and Beauty
