Formula Cleanse facial cleansing milk
Pixi in-shower steam facial
Pestle & Mortar Exfoliate glycolic acid exfoliating solution

Step 1. Double cleanse. Massage an aromatic cleansing oil/balm into your skin to melt away make-up, followed by a cleanser catered to your skin type.

Step 2. Steam. Use a facial steamer or jump in the shower to open the pores and prep the skin.

Step 3. Exfoliate. Use an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and reveal a brighter, smoother complexion.

Step 4. Mask. Choose a face mask for your specific skin type or concern, or try ‘multi-masking’ by customising the mask to each area of the face.

Step 5. Serum. Flood the skin with goodness by using a highly concentrated serum catered to your skin concern.

Step 6. Moisturise/oil. Finish your facial by applying an eye cream and your favourite night cream/oil, using smoothing upward strokes.
