At WuChi by Maks we believe what you put on your skin should be as good as what you eat and even better, because your skin absorbs what you put on it from whithin.
The elements of a good skincare regime are based on giving your skin a good looking after. If you don’t look after the skin how do you expect it to look healthy and protect itself from all the pollution and free radicals from the environment? The basic products you need are a Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser, plus making an effort of treating it once a week with Exfoliation and Facial Mask. Looking after your skin should only take a few minutes and the benefits are exceptional.
Cleansing is a very basic and essential part of a good skincare regime it is not just about removing make up. Cleansing helps improve the appearance of the skin because it removes debris, dead skin cells, oil and grime and sweat that have been collected on the skin surface all day long. Cleaning is very important because it ensures that the other element of a good skincare regime works well. Cleanse your face first things in the morning to wipe away sebum produced overnight. I recommend Orange blossom cleanser to promote a healthy complexion If you have normal, dry, mature, sensitive skin, it softens the skin and cleans at the same time. Use Replenishing Deep Cleanser for oily or combination skin.
Beauty Tip: A cream based cleanser, removed with a muslin cloth, and wringed out in warm water is the best way to cleanse the skin.
Toners act as astringents to close pores, tighten and help to protect the skin after cleansing and exfoliating. They are useful in removing any residue and at the same time brighten and refresh the face. Depending on your skin type, choose toners with ingredients like Aloe Vera to sooth or Rosewater for inflamed skin. After cleansing and exfoliating, sprinkle a generous amount of toner on cotton wool and smooth over your neck and face. If you have normal, dry or mature skin, I recommend our Balancing Rosewater Toner.
If you have combination or oily skin we recommend using the Replenishing Face Tonic.
Beauty Tip: for a more refreshing tone, sprits your toner unto your face.
Moisturising is very important and should not be overlooked. Moisturisers hydrate the skin
by forming a barrier on the skin surface, to prevent moisture loss. Using a moisturiser will help protect, repair, nourish and make your skin softer and smoother.
I have developed two effective moisturisers for night and day that work as skin food and contain essential fatty acids, vital oils and vitamins that are beneficial for your skin. Use Rose Rejuvenating Day Cream if your skin is dry, dehydrated, sensitive or mature and in need of some serious looking after. Nourishing Night Cream contains active ingredients that works while you sleep to nourishes, repairs and tones the texture of your skin- (Best Night Cream Award 2009)
Beauty Tip: applying your moisturiser to slightly damp skin, helps lock in more moisture.
Exfoliating helps get rid of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and suitable for every skin type. Exfoliating scrubs help refine the skin texture and make your skin softer, smoother, brighter and radiant. Exfoliating on the face should be done gently at least once a week. I recommend Almond Face Scrub – with gentle exfoliating grains and gentle enough to be used on the most sensitive skin.
Choose an exfoliating face scrub that is not too grainy and harsh on the skin. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day to keep your skin plump and hydrated
