We’re well aware just how complicated building an effective and efficient skincare regime can be. That’s exactly why we exist. We cut through all the confusion and do the leg work for you, not only sifting through the skincare industry’s mammoth stock of formulas to find ones that actually work, but also taking time to decipher your skin’s unique needs to recommend products right for you.
Into it? Then book a Holistic Skin Session to unlock this intel. But to get a feel for the kind of tailored skincare routine you can expect, we thought we’d walk you through the current products that our founders, Megan and Ksenia are using both AM and PM.
Megan’s current skincare routine
I’m trialling this product at the moment and so far, I really like it. It reminds me of my all-time favourite cleanser, Exuviance’s Gentle Cleansing Cream, so it already had a leg up over other cleansers out there. The texture is creamy and it contains PHAs!
I have been back in the office and so makeup is back on the cards for me. I like this oil because I feel like it really makes me feel glowy and my makeup goes on really well afterwards.
I am sadly almost out of this one, but I have to use a HA serum 2x/day. This one is a favourite of mine.
This product has got to be my favourite new discovery. It actually makes me glow and I feel so good about having SPF 50 daily that I don't dread putting on in the slightest. For summer, it is perfect because it's lightweight, but I will need to switch to something more hydrating in the winter.
I use this cleanser again at night with a muslin cloth.
I either go straight in with this or use the Chantecaille Liquid Exfoliant. I use both 2x/week and I feel like I have seen a big difference in my skin texture since starting.
I use it again because I cannot do my night time regime without a hydrating serum.
I use this when using the azelaic acid mentioned above, otherwise it’s the Exuviance Overnight Transformative Complex for me.
Ksenia’s current skincare routine
I just received this product and I’m loving it for a very gentle wash, especially in the morning. I use it pre-workout to gently awaken my skin. I wake up very early in the morning and only workout 2 hours after so I do have a very short routine before.
I love this product in summer as it is super light-weight and it leaves my skin just about comfortable enough and causes no congestion or unusual breakouts which I am experiencing a lot lately due to my pregnancy.
I got this cleanser in a swiss pharmacy and I am loving it. It gently removes sweat, and other nasties accumulated from my workout and leaves my skin fresh and comfortable. It doesn't give me that squeaky clean feeling but still provides a more thorough cleanse than the prebiotic cleanser.
I love this probiotic-rich mist. It gives me a little fresh feeling during summer but also prep my skin for the next products in line. Since using it, I feel that my skin is way more balanced and calmer than before!
I then follow with this serum that is both protecting and hydrating. I apply it while my skin is still a bit ‘wet’ and it sinks-in super fast which helps avoid any of that annoying ‘pilling’ effect and it has kept my skin calm.
This moisturiser is amazing for my skin. It hydrates and nourishes without leaving any greasiness and residue and is perfect when layered with a sunscreen.
I then follow with a mineral sunscreen. This one is great for everyday use but I won't recommend it on holidays as it makes my eyes watery when I reapply it.
I am obsessed with oil cleanser and this one has been amazing for my skin. I use it with a lukewarm muslin cloth to avoid leaving any oil residue on my skin and to provide my skin with a gentle exfoliation.
Depending on how my skin feels after the day, I alternate between both.
I use this max 2 times per week to give my skin the exfoliation it needs. I need to be careful with chemical exfoliants so having a treatment rather than something for everyday use. This is my exfoliating step and I love it! I do leave it on my skin for only 30 sec as it is quite intense.
This is a more ‘creamy’ type of hydrating serum and feels absolutely amazing on my skin. I love it as it provides the right hydration. In summer, I like to keep my skincare regime quite streamlined so I would finish here. However, if I use the Exuviance Glycolic Peel, I do use the Esse Probiotic Light Moisturiser or Neostrata’s PHA Ultra Moisturising Face Cream as a final step.
