THE STRONG FOUNDATION YOU NEED FOR ‘CREAM SKIN’

By Nateisha Scott


Ever since the glass skin trend came around and the obsession with clear, radiant and seamlessly "pore-free" complexions was front and centre, we have focused more and more on what delivers this smooth and effortless finish. Whilst centralising glass skin, the mood has shifted onto "cream skin" a paired down but creamy finish that is left on the complexion. The strong foundation for this look comes from the correct treatment of our pores. Whilst pore size is somewhat based on genetics, we can help with appearance but removing the build up of oil or dirt in the skin that can make them seem larger. Not only through your routine but as you age and the less collagen you produce, it will reduce elasticity and cause the pores to open. Whilst deterioration is natural when it comes to skin and ageing, there are steps you can take to ensure that your pore size remains minimal and help to achieve ‘cream skin’.

CLEANSE REGULARLY

One of the main contributors to oil and dirt build up as well as breakouts is the skin not being cleansed effectively. You should be double cleansing at least once a day to remove the dirt, makeup, dead skin cells and excess sebum that sits on the skin and clogs the pores. You don’t need to overhaul your whole routine for your cleanser to be effective, and our Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser will cleanse the skin whilst treating the imperfections. Infused with Vitamin C to brighten the complexion but also Peptidic Microalgae Complex that reduces pigmentation, both helping to achieve a clearer complexion overall.

REACH OUT FOR ACIDS

In other words exfoliation, acids for the skin isn’t anything to be afraid of and can actually have a huge impact in the way your pores will appear. By resurfacing the skin, acids such as salicylic, phytic, mandelic and lactic slough away dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal, revealing a brighter and smoother complexion. Lactic acid therefore infused in both the Clinical Exfoliator and Celestial Black Diamond Multi Acid Accelerated Peel will tackle the need to exfoliate the skin. The Clinical Exfoliator is powerful but gentle in its effect and will refine and clarify the complexion. Utilising amino acids to hydrate and reduce water loss, an AHA complex to exfoliate and retexturise as well as a botanical complex that reduces inflammation and irritation. Similarly, the Multi Accelerated Acid Peel is both an enzymatic peel and physical exfoliator that accelerates the process whilst brightening and firming the skin. Designed to give a chemical and peel-like effect at home, this mask will reveal a gorgeously polished complexion.

BEFRIEND MOISTURISER

Cream skin focuses on a softer and more gentler approach that combines a hydrating toner and a moisturiser. As the trend evolves, it also adapts to our time spent on our routines, glass skin required more steps and more time but cream skin involves less steps and a more hydrated and nourished complexion. Our Y Theorem Day Cream is a rich moisturiser that carries all the benefits your skin will need, a vitamin and antioxidant infused formula that will leave skin protected against the environment, anti-ageing active ingredients and revitalised.

OIL FREE PRODUCTS

Aside from the environment, makeup plays a huge part in contributing to clogged pores and whilst cleansing and exfoliating will help to keep the dirt at bay, applying oil-free cosmetic products will reduce the amount of excess oil that sits and breeds in the pores.

Altogether, keeping on top of your skincare and keeping the pores clean will achieve the clear and ‘glassy’complexion you desire.
