Five Best Skin Care Products Everyone Needs

Many times, as skin therapists we get asked, "What are the best skin care products?"

So, I thought I would take this opportunity to answer this question. The first thing I would like to say is, it's not about a particular range. It's about finding something that respects the skin's natural health. It doesn't matter if you are 16 or 75 if you get the right level of water (ie: Hyaluronic Acid) and oils (ie: EFAs) your skin will thrive. It's a bit like finding the perfect balance of water and food for plants!! So here goes.

The Five Best Skin Care Products Every Skin Needs

1 - Hydration prep is Commonly known as a toning lotion. Unlike the old-fashioned lotions which were more astringent, these ones really help saturate the skin with lots of moisture. It starts increasing the water level of the skin, so when you put a serum or moisturiser on after, it increases the penetration of the treatment products. My favorite is Excel 02 toner. One of our best-selling products, a brilliant toner for oily skin, but suitable for all skins. Try Excel O2 Toner

2 - Eye cleanser My favorite is called Options Eye Makeup Remover. It's not the best name because it’s a treatment eye cleanser. It is high in hyaluronic acid which is a moisture-binding ingredient. It draws moisture to the skin and instantly starts plumping it, so any little fine dehydration lines will start to become less visible. To use, simply soak a cotton round and hold it over the eyes for 10-30 seconds to break down any eye makeup, then wipe in a downward movement. As an at-home treatment, soak two cotton rounds, pop it over the eyes, lay down for 10 or 15 minutes. You’ll get better penetration from your eye cream too. Try Option Eye Makeup Remover

3 - Hyaluronic Force Serum This is all about saturating the skin with moisture molecules. It has 100% hyaluronic acid of three molecular weights. The smaller molecules go to the deeper layers and instantly start to swell between our structural layers. This gives a great plumping effect and is perfect if you're worried about the signs of ageing. Medium molecular weight HA goes to the middle of the skin and starts to fill up our reservoirs with lots of water. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid works directly on the epidermis (surface layer of the skin). It acts as a barrier and helps to lock in moisture and helps reduce sensitivity and irritation and minimises breakouts and promotes healing of the skin. Use as a pre-serum to help increase the benefits of other serums. Try Hyaluronic Force Serum

4 - Absolute Nourishment Elixir This product contains five different essential fatty acids. It's what we call a dry oil, so it doesn’t feel heavy or thick on the skin. Use on top of your other serum or you can mix it with a moisturiser. Some people choose just to add a little bit to their skin before foundation if you find your foundation is sinking into your skin. Perfect for use in the drier months to ensure your skin stays soft and smooth. Try Nourishment Elixir Oil

5 - Excel 02 CC cream This is a treatment foundation. It gives great coverage without making you look older. Best used on freshly moisturised skin. It’s high in hyaluronic acid and licorice, which combined helps to reduce inflammation. It also contains SPF 30. It is self-adjusting to six assorted color spectrums so blends with almost every skin colour. I haven’t met one person that can’t use it. Try Excel O2 CC Cream
