How often should I use my skincare products?
Saturday March, 2017
You’ve chosen the perfect skincare regime for your dosha and to suit your skin type, but how and when should you use each product?
Cleansing your skin is important to remove impurities and bacteria. We recommend cleansing your face twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening. In the evening in particular, we recommend double cleansing your face. This ensures that all makeup and impurities have been removed from your skin. Gently massage your favourite Urban Veda Daily Facial Wash into your face and neck in circular motions, then rinse with warm water and repeat.
Exfoliating your skin isn’t a daily activity. If you have dry skin, we recommend using your favourite Exfoliating Facial Polish twice a week, but if you have oily or very sensitive skin, reduce this to once a week. Over-exfoliating oily skin can actually increase the amount of oil, as it stimulates your sebaceous glands. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, leaving you with a softer and smoother complexion. Apply your Exfoliating Facial Polish after cleansing, and gently massage in circular motions for approximately one minute, before removing with warm water.
Toners help to balance the pH level of your skin, leaving your skin less prone to oiliness and infection, and creating a smoother appearance. Toners also help to tighten pores after cleansing. Toners should be used whenever you cleanse your face. Sometimes after cleansing, your skin may feel tight – apply your favourite toner, and your skin will feel much happier. Pour a little toner onto a cotton pad and gently press onto your skin after cleansing.
Day cream is to be applied in the morning. Once you have fully cleansed your face, apply your favourite Urban Veda Day Cream to your face (being careful to avoid the eyes), and apply to your neck. Massage the Day Cream gently into your skin. Many people also apply their Night Cream to their décolleté, as this area is often a tell-tale sign of ageing. After it has absorbed into the skin, you can now apply makeup if you wish.
As the name would suggest, night cream is to be applied in the evening, just before you to go bed. Once you have fully cleansed your face, apply your favourite Urban Veda Night Cream to your face (being careful to avoid the eyes), and apply to your neck. As with your Day Cream, massage the Night Cream gently into your skin. Many people also apply their Night Cream to their décolleté, as this area is often a tell-tale sign of ageing.
Our indulgent body washes are designed to be enjoyed every time you shower or bathe. Lather up with our SLS-free formulas to gently cleanse your skin without stripping it of moisture. Our body washes carefully remove impurities from the skin, leaving it hydrated, soft and refreshed.
In order to keep your skin in top condition, exfoliate your skin twice a week with our luxurious body scrubs. Massage the scrub into your skin using circular motions to boost your circulation. This exfoliation process helps to remove excess dead skin cells, which unclogs pores, supports cell regeneration and leaves the skin looking and feeling smooth and soft. Once massaged, rinse off with warm water.
Lock-in moisture every day with our creamy yet fast-absorbing body lotions. On a daily basis, treat your skin to our moisturising body lotions, gently massaging in to boost circulation and leave the skin feeling nourished. Our body lotions are also packed with antioxidants which help to protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals. Moisturise, hydrate and protect delicate skin with your favourite Urban Veda Body Lotion.
