A simple three step routine

April 10, 2024

While some may think adding more products to their routine will lead to beautiful skin, it can sometimes lead to irritation in the long-term. Over time, skin can become stressed by being overloaded with an excessive multi-step routine. 

Whether you’re experiencing skin sensitivity due to over-layering, have had a bad reaction to one particular product or simply want to reduce the time spent on your skincare ritual, our three-step routine may be the answer! This blog will guide you through the process of stripping-back and designing a simple routine tailored to your specific skin care needs and goals and leave you feeling radiant. 

The fundamentals to an easy three-step routine:


The foundation of any skincare routine is a good cleanser. It's essential to choose a cleanser that effectively removes dirt and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural moisture.

For: clearer skin:  Clarifying Cleansing Oil 

For brighter skin:  Rose Geranium Cleansing Oil

Use an active:

Following the cleanse, target specific skin ‘issues’ such a dryness, acne or dullness using a product containing active ingredients. Common active skincare ingredients include: hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, ceramides, retinoids, AHAs, BHAs and amongst others, vitamins A, C and E. Sticking to one product here will be beneficial as the overuse of actives can damage the skin.

Lock-in moisture:

Finish by wrapping the skin in a layer of moisture to protect and retain the all of the goodness from the previous step. You can use this easy three-step skin care routine either in the morning before applying make-up or in the evening before you go to sleep.
