4 basic steps to a good skincare routine
Knowing your skin type will help you to choose the right products for your skin, however, a quick rule of thumb to a good skincare routine is:
- Exfoliate regularly, once or twice a week, using a chemical, enzymatic or physical exfoliating scrub – or a combination of these. Exfoliation removes the build up of dead skin cells to reveal new skin, which allows for your moisturisers and treatments to absorb better.
Fountain Face Scrub contains an advanced triple-action exfoliant that smooths and nourishes the skin, while lactic and malic acid, combined with advanced enzymes and jojoba florabeads, work together to repair the surface of the skin.
2. Apply a good antioxidant serum or treatment to protect your skin from free radical damage, such as Fountain Day Defence.
3. Moisturise morning and night. Make sure the product you use in your skincare routine reduces trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) to maintain hydration throughout the day and night.
Fountain has a range of moisturisers that prevent TEWL. Choose one that best suits your skin type.
4. Protect your skin from UV damage by using a moisturising sun screen with a high SPF factor.
Fountain Super Moisture SPF50+ is an incredibly light yet powerful moisturising sunscreen, featuring the highest possible SPF rating.
