Creating and following a skin care regime is important and not as overwhelming or complex as it seems! Dealing with your skin type can be difficult when you are uncertain of products and the benefits they offer; particularly for dry, oily and sensitive skin complexions. Finding time to take care of your skin in the same way you would your hair is vital in keeping your skin refreshed, energised and youthful (something we are sure we all desire!).

We advise starting by washing the face with a face wash, cleansing, toning and finishing with a moisturiser. We have outlined a guide depending on your skin type with recommended products to cater to your individual needs.
You should exfoliate your skin once or twice a week as this will help to remove dead skin cells, prevent ingrowing hairs and promote hair growth allowing for a closer shave. 

Dry Skin Routine

We recommend cleansing your face with a mild, gentle face wash twice a day. Avoid products which are heavily perfumed as these can be harsh on dry skin which is prone to cracking. Use a gentle exfoliant on the skin once or twice per week to help control dead skin cells and blemishes. We would advise using Anthony's Facial Scrub as this product uses white sand, a natural exfoliant which is less harsh on the skin surface. It is important to cleanse and tone the skin to prevent any dirt being absorbed in to your pores. To finish apply a rich moisturiser to place the elasticity back into your skin keeping it fresh and energised.

Oily Skin Routine

It can be easy to over wash your face if you have particularly oily skin, try to prevent washing your face more than twice a day as this can remove oils that are essential to keeping your skin appear fresh, firm and bright. We recommend the Anthony range for oily skin as it contains a range of natural ingredients and exfoliants which are less irritable for problematic skin. The Anthony Glycolic Facial Cleanser is a deep cleansing facial wash which can be used daily and is designed for normal to oily skin. After cleansing the face we advise you use a toner to re-surface skin and close your pores to prevent dirt and oils being absorbed back into the skin. Finish with a moisturiser such as Anthony Oil Free Facial Lotion. This lotion is easily absorbed and hydrates skin without leaving an oily residue...perfect!

Sensitive Skin Routine

If you have sensitive skin it is particularly important you use a product with no harsh chemicals and is gentle in its application. Anthony Algae Facial Cleanser is designed for sensitive skin containing calming oils to allow for a gentle and soothing cleanse. Once you have cleansed and toned your face you should finish by using a facial moisturiser. Again, the Anthony range is what we would recommend due to the natural oils and ingredients which will leave your skin feeling refreshed and bright.

Fancy going the extra mile?

  • Clay masks are an intense deep cleaning treatment, perfect for all skin tones, which help to decongest clogged pores. The mask evens skin tone and reduces excess oil.
  • Eye cream helps to protect skin around the eye which is naturally thin. The cream also helps prevent fine lines and reduce puffiness.
  • Lip balm protects the skin on your lips which is particuarly sensitive, especially when exposed in the sun.
  • A good quality body wash is preferred as it will help to gently exfoliate the skin. The exfoliant properties will benefit combination skin types which are prone to breakouts on areas of the body such as the back and arms.
