Jump face first into the New Year with a radical new skincare regime...
Christmas has been and gone. The midnight bells of New Year's Eve have chimed... and let's be honest, if there's one place that's taken the brunt of the festive excess (other than our wallets of course!) it's our faces!
The late nights, the food, the alcohol... those nights when we forgot to remove our makeup before bed?! It has all taken its toll.
It's time for a detox. Try our 5 step plan to achieving gorgeous skin...
This might seem like an idealistic procedure... one for those with an abundance of spare time. But in reality, it requires no special equipment or expensive products and will take up only 10 to 15 minutes of your time.
Pour boiled water into a large bowl, put your face over the bowl with a towel over your head and stick your timer on to 10 minutes. It's that simple!
If you can achieve this once per day the results will be fantastic... but for the very time restricted, two times per week is better than no times!
Cleanse routinely. Twice per day, every day. Once in the morning and once at night.
This might seem excessive but I assure you it is not. This will take up less than 10 minutes of your whole day combined. And it is absolutely necessary!
The skin is the biggest organ of the body and also the most exposed. The build-up of Bacteria, oil, dirt and toxins on your skin, if left uncleaned, will result in acne breakouts and contribute heavily to skin aging.
Try Ren Rosa Centifolia Foaming Cleanser... it reduces oxidative damage and removes dirt and pollution for a balanced complexion.
Moisturise in conjunction with your cleansing routine, twice per day, every day.
The importance of this process should never be overlooked.
The skin on your face is constantly exposed to all kinds of elements... moisturising is not only a source of hydration for your skin but it also provides a protective barrier to avoid everyday skin damage.
Not to mention it's anti-wrinkle benefits!
We highly recommend Ren Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimimum Skin Oil - strengthens skin and re-energises cell activity.
Face masks can be applied as a weekly treat. They are deeply cleansing and therefore don't need to be used daily.
Masks are used to unclog pores and draw out impurities and generally improve your overall skincare regime.
The process of the mask hardening on your skin and being removed also stimulates and expands blood vessels which leaves your skin with a gorgeous glow.
Apply Ren Clarimatte Invisible Pore Detox Mask for 15 minutes and relax your way to reduced pore size and a healthy gleaming face.
Drink Water. Drink plenty of it and drink little else.
The recommendation for Women is 1.6 Litres per day (or 8 glasses) but in hotter weather you should allow for more.
The idea is that you are hydrating your skin from the inside out whilst also flushing out toxins from your body.
It's a good habit to get into generally but this is no skincare myth... Replace juices and fizzies with the recommended volumes for at least one month and the results will be multifold. Healthy, glowing skin will just be one of them!
