5 Reasons to Cleanse Your Skin

Are you cleansing your skin correctly to get the best benefits? Why is cleansing important you ask?

 1.    Cleansers are made specifically for the face.

Cleansing milks are particularly gentle and suitable for most skin types.  They assist in removing all makeup, dirt, grime, and pollutions from the environment. Leaving your skin feeling clean, fresh and comfortable. Tip for our makeup lovers ~ We recommend double cleansing as the first cleanse will remove your makeup and the second cleanse is your TRUE SKIN Cleanse. Even if you are not wearing makeup you’re not out of the woods yet. During the day sweating, going out in traffic, or just sitting still, pollutants from the environment accumulate on your skin.

Payot Creme Micellaire Demaquillante (200ml) $50.00

2.   Eye Makeup Removers or Cleansers are formulated to work gently on the eye region.

Removing your eye makeup with the correct product will gently dissolve your mascara and eye makeup without harsh rubbing or dragging of this delicate area. The skin around the eyes is particularly thin and sensitive therefore we recommend using a product that has been created especially for this area of the face. It will eliminate makeup that is gentle and kinder on your eye contour area. If you use waterproof mascara, you will need an oil-based eye makeup remover. TIP: Nourish with an eye gel or cream 1-2 times daily. 

Thalgo Express Makeup Remover (125ml) $42.00

Thalgo Eveil A La Mer Express Make-Up Remover can be used on both the eyes and lips. Removes all traces of make-up, including waterproof. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive.

3.    Refine skin and remove all trace elements of grime and pollutants.

Using a  cleansing toner or lotion will finalise the cleansing process.  In this stage of your cleansing routine, you will remove final traces of cleanser and rebalance the skin. Toning promotes enhanced penetration from your treatment serums and creams that are working actively to repair, hydrate and balance skin.

4.    Ask yourself this?

Do you shampoo and condition your hair? Cleansing and toning for the face is the same 🙂

5.    Your skin is your biggest organ.

So, don’t forget the skin on the rest of your body. It’s the flexible outer covering that acts as the barrier, protecting the body from harmful things in the outside world such as moisture, the cold and sun rays, as well as germs and toxic substances. It also helps with temperature regulation, immune defence, vitamin production, and sensation.  So use a mild cleanser or light soap for an all over body skin cleanse. Keep water temperature warm (not hot) ~ too hot has a drying effect.  For rough areas like our backs or bumps on bums, a cleansing exfoliant works a treat. Try our la Vie elixir Macadamia Scrub, followed up by la Vie elixir Lapis Crème for all over hydration.

Top 4 Must-Have Skin Care Products for the Winter Months

Winter has finally given us something to complain about in Australia. It’s freezing in the mornings when we first wake up, with beautiful clear days during the day and cooler later in the evenings. Winter time we all try to find that warm spot in the sun and cuddle up on the couch with a blanket next to a warm fire or heater.

Winter Tips for Your Skincare

In the winter months, the temperature drops and we experience low humidity, cold winds, hot showers and using heaters more often which dry the skin out leaving it more prone to flaking, dry patches, and itchiness. Skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis are more prone to flare up as well.

The change of season can cause different skin conditions and the skin is more prone to redness, breakouts, dry patches and dullness.

It’s always a good idea to switch up your skin care routine in winter and add in some extra products to your routine to prevent any of these skin conditions.

Regular facials in winter will also help give your skin that little bit extra nourishment and hydration. Our favourites are microdermabrasion, LED Light Therapy and a series of peels are perfect for this time of year.

We love helping you achieve amazing results for your skin at home so the Stephanies Team has come up with 4 Winter must-haves that you can include into your normal skin care routine to give you the best results this winter. All 4 of these products are from CEO’s Stephanie Shepherd’s Bathroom.

Synergie Skin Dermiotic and Vitamin B

Synergie Skin Vitamin B

Vitamin B also known as Niacinamide is a vital ingredient for the skin and suitable for all skin types. Synergie Skin’s Vitamin B serum is packed full of Vitamin B3 and B5 and can be used morning and evening after using a gentle cleanser and before applying your moisturiser.

There are many benefits to using Vitamin B every day in your skincare routine that will make you want to use this vitamin all year round.

Synergie Skin Dermiotic

Synergie Skin has launched a new product just in time for Winter which is Dermiotic. We all know about probiotics and how important gut health is. Lately, there has been a lot of talk about the gut microbiome, but microbiomes also exist on the skin. The microbiome is part of helping the skin function properly from wound healing to immune skin protection.

The Dermiotic is a lightweight elixir enriched with pre and probiotics. The elixir is to be used as a substitute to a traditional toner. After cleansing your skin, apply 3-4 drops into your palm and gently pat into the face and neck. Apply your serums and moisturisers a few minutes after.

Payot Lip Balm and
Payot Hydra 24+ Essence

A new skincare product to Payot’s Hydra 24+ Range is the Hydra 24+ Essence. Now you’re probably thinking what is an essence and why do I need it? Using an essence in your skin care routine will allow your serums and moisturisers to penetrate to those deeper layers of the skin, meaning you will use less product and get amazing results.

After cleansing the skin, apply the essence all over the face and neck followed by your day or night cream. The essence can also be massaged into the eye area followed by applying your favourite eye cream.

The Benefits:
-Protects the skin again external aggressors
-Hydrates the skin by saturating skin cells
-Allows your serums and moisturisers to infuse deeper
-Less product usage of your serum and moisturisers
-Full with sodium hyaluronate which is a smaller molecule size of hyaluronic acid which can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin
-Plumps the skin

Top Tip: keep the essence in your fridge for an ice-cube effect.

Top winter skincare and body tips you can do at home

1. Drink lots of water (yes I know we hear this all the time but repetition is key when it comes to drinking the good ‘ol’ H2O. Eat wholesome soups and drink warm teas to keep your body temp up.

2. Overly hot showers and washing your face with hot water are tempting but are drying on the skin. Switch between hot and warm while wallowing in the steamy goodness.

3. Foaming facial cleansers are fab, however, milk cleansers and creams are more nourishing avoiding the loss of important natural oils our skin naturally makes.

4. Apply Lip Balm daily – our lips are more prone to cracking and dryness with cold weather, using a lip balm daily will keep your lips protected and supple.

5. Your winter skin needs a little more of a boost in so include a face serum and mask into your skin routine! Those vitamin serums in your routine and a sleep mask will do your skin a world of good.

6. Gently exfoliate face and body (yes body) once to twice a week to remove dead skin cells, brighten the skin and allows your moisturisers to penetrate properly into the skin.

7. A night rich moisturiser. If you find your skin is drier in the winter use your summer moisturiser during the day, and changeup for a richer moisturiser at night. Thank you!

8. Hands are prone to dryness in the cooler months. Dry winter weather plus washing them quite often leads to eczema or dry spots. So, use a hand cream, and cuticle oil on your cuticles to keep everything nourished. Remember hand cream and cuticle oil.

9. Body Moisturiser is a no-brainer ~ just ensure you have a permanent supply of la Vie elixirs Lapis Body Creme (contains real lapis lazuli, say no more).

10. Wear Sunscreen daily! Even when it is cloudy or cold UVA rays still penetrate through the skin into our dermal layer causing premature ageing. Opt for a chemical-free sunscreen if you don’t like sunscreen, zinc oxide is amazing for the skin being inflammatory, healing and protecting from UV damage.
