Hi all, great to be back. Sorry for being so quiet – this is normally a hectic time of the year!
WHY DOES MY SKIN FEEL DRY AT TIMES?
As we age, the skin becomes thinner (a result of exposure to UV light, pollution and the natural ageing process). This means that moisture escapes more readily, which can leave skin feeling tight and dry. A moisturiser, such as the PhytoExquisitesTM Day Cream SPF 30, brings instant comfort to skin by infusing surface layers with a splash of soothing ingredients. It also helps skin protect its internal moisture reserves by supporting its natural barrier function, and contains the added benefit of an SPF to protect skin against harmful UV rays. Dry skins especially will benefit from a rich overnight moisturiser, such as the PhytoExquisitesTM Renewing Night Cream. Many of the body’s natural repair processes take place while we sleep, and this silky cream not only adds hydration but is laced with active ingredients that boost skin’s cellular repair functions.
CAN OVER CLEANSING CAUSE DRYNESS?
Over-cleansing can disrupt the delicate acid mantle that not only protects the skin from allergens and bacteria but also guards
against moisture loss. So the answer is yes. Choose a cream-based cleanser that won’t leave your skin taut or dry and avoid standing under the shower for any length of time as water can strip the skin of its natural oils. Try the PhytoExquisitesTM Cleansing Cream, it’s a luxurious milky cleanser that softens and conditions skin as it gently removes make-up and impurities.
SHOULD I USE A TONER
A toner is the essential second step in your everyday cleansing regimen. The PhytoExquisitesTM Floral Hydrating Mist helps to balance and repair skin while it wipes away any residue left behind after cleansing or exfoliating. It’s also designed to boost the efficiency of other products in the range. It’s a great refresher for make-up throughout the day and its uplifting fragrance is a tonic for a weary mind and body.
I use these products every day, and I’m 100% satisfied. Is very good quality – you only use a little bit every time and therefore it keeps you up to about 3 months. The Toner I carry in my handbag, every time I feel hot and bothered I just spray my face, its cooling effect lifts my spirit every time. Also very good for those having menopause.
Have a great Ice Coffee – we will talk again.
