Background Information

Your skin is the body’s largest organ. It weighs between two and four kilos, covers between one and two square metres and completely renews itself every seven to ten weeks.
Your skin reflects your state of health, being soft and smooth when well cared for, or dry and flaky when taken for granted. To be the proud owner of beautiful, soft, young-looking skin, you need to take care of it.

Daily Skin Care Regime

Men as well as women will see a marked improvement in their skin if they follow a good skin care plan. Cleanse, tone and moisturise daily. Then exfoliate and use a mask a regularly.
We all need to cleanse our face and neck, morning and night. The accumulation of dead cells, perspiration and make-up mixed with the grime in the atmosphere, clogs up our pores and results in a dull and lifeless appearance.
After cleansing a toner is used to remove the last traces of cleanser and tighten and tone the pores. Toner leaves the skin feeling invigorated and cool.
Next use a moisturizer. Pollution, sunlight, harsh weather, air conditioning and central heating remove moisture from the skin. This causes dry and dull skin. Two litres of water daily will hydrate your skin from the inside. You should also add moisture from the outside. A good moisturizer will help prevent your skin’s moisture from evaporating into the atmosphere. All skin types, including oily, need moisturizers.
