Morning Skincare

Antioxidants neutralise free radicals, which is why they’re a key ingredient in our daily skincare. Free radical generation with oxidative stress is a prime mechanism of skin ageing. Excess free radicals are triggered after sun and pollution exposure, but cell metabolism also generates free radicals every second of every day. This is why a high-grade antioxidant product is an absolute must in everyone’s skincare regime. After cleansing your skin, apply a high-grade antioxidant serum to your face, neck, chest and hands, each morning.

The crucial, final step in your morning routine should be to apply a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen moisturiser of SPF 30-50. There are two main types of UV filters – physical (mineral) and chemical (organic) filters. Physical filters reflect UV rays on the skin surface, similar to a mirror. Chemical filters on the other hand work by absorbing UV light within the skin and converting it into a different type of energy, more like a sponge.
