Hormonal Acne/ Spots

To tailor this routine for spot prone skin we first need to understand what causes hormonal acne and spots. The sebaceous gland is located next to small hair follicles in the skin and secretes an oil known as sebum, which is used to prevent the skin and hair from drying out. Spots develop when these pores become clogged and inflamed.

Using the wrong skin care can affect your chances of getting spots, especially if it’s harsh on the skin. We recommend a skin ‘spot test’ on a small area of skin before putting any of the products on your face.

Aromatherapy Associates highly effective yet gentle cleanser is supported by Omega-rich Ximenia and Evening Primrose Oils to calm inflammation and restore moisture. Wash the affected area with a cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse. We recommend using this morning and evening, some makeup wearers may benefit from a double cleanse in the evening.

The Lunar Glow Toner, Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum, and the Comfort Zone moisturiser should be used morning and evening to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and calm redness.

Packed with natural, plant-powered goodness the Votary Super Seed Oil is great for sensitive skin. Many believe that face oils will clog pores further, but the truth is they can help to treat blemishes, soothe skin, and brighten up acne scars. We recommend introducing this once per day in the morning or evening and building up to twice a day if you are happy with the results.

The Kaolin Clay in Dr. Craft’s Masque gently cleanses the skin by pulling impurities from the pores without any redness or irritation and is especially revered for absorbing excess oil in the skin and helping to manage excess sebum production. This function allows Kaolin to mattify the skin and assist acne-prone skin types by reducing clogged pores which can cause breakouts. We recommend using the masque once a week.

Dry Skin

Skin becomes dry when its surface becomes damaged – this causes (invisible) cracks which allow moisture to escape easily and irritants to get in. This results in skin feeling tight, looking dull, lacking elasticity, and (in severe cases) triggers flaky patches, itching, and redness.

Aromatherapy Associates highly effective yet gentle cleanser is supported by Omega-rich Ximenia and Evening Primrose Oils to calm inflammation and restore moisture. Pure Camomile essential oil from Roman fields works to reduce redness and calm the skin. Dermatologically tested, this cleanser suits sensitive skin types. We recommend using this cleanser evening morning and evening.

The Lunar Glow daily face toner is to be used after cleansing to help remove makeup & skin impurities. This formula contains mild (non-irritating) surfactants, that act like magnets for dirt & oil and Hyaluronic Acid helps your skin to absorb moisture.

The Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum, Comfort Zone Moisturiser and Votary Face Oil should be used morning and evening to remove dead skin cells and provide deep lasting moisture.

Dr. Craft’s Masque can be used 1-2 times a week. Organic Argan Oil has high levels of naturally occurring vitamin E, and saponins, which can help soften the skin. By restoring the skin’s water lipid layer, and boosting hydration, the ingredient helps to improve elasticity.

Excess Oil

Oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin. Sebum is vital for keeping the skin healthy. However, too much sebum can lead to oily skin, clogged pores, and acne.

The Aromatherapy Associates enriched balm cleanser is perfect for use morning and night to remove impurities and make-up gently and effectively. The Lunar Glow Toner should be used morning and evening to remove excess sebum and tone the skin.

Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Fix Serum is an innovative serum with 4% glycolic acid to retexture the skin’s appearance. Glycolic acid is a very powerful ingredient for oily skin, especially if you’re prone to breakouts. Many people with oily skin find benefit from products that contain glycolic acid to help reduce excessive oil and prevent the plugging of pores that leads to acne breakouts.

Comfort Zone Hydramemory Cream Gel should be used morning and evening to provide deep lasting moisture. Votary’s Super Seed Oil contains low comedogenic oils like Argan Oil and Meadowfoam Seed Oil making it deeply moisturising whilst helping to balance your skin’s oil production. We recommend only using the Votary Super Seed Oil once a day in the evening to avoid your skin looking shiny throughout the day.

Dr. Craft’s Masque can be used 1-2 times a week. Organic Argan Oil has high levels of naturally occurring vitamin E, and saponins, which can help soften the skin. By restoring the skin’s water lipid layer, and boosting hydration, the ingredient helps to improve elasticity.

Fine Lines

Fine lines are small and shallow lines that appear on the face, this is normally an indicator of first signs of ageing. Fine lines turn into wrinkles as you age – this is because the collagen and elastin beneath the surface of your skin begins to break down. With the proper treatment and some patience, fine lines can be reversed, and the youthful appearance of healthy skin restored.

The Aromatherapy Associates balm cleanser is supported by Omega-rich Ximenia and Evening Primrose Oils to calm inflammation and restore moisture helping to reverse fine lines.

Lunar Glow’s Pore Minimising Toner, containing Hyaluronic Acid, provides anti-ageing support and should be used morning and evening. Hyaluronic Acid can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water helping to hold water molecules onto your skin’s surface and keep it hydrated and improve elasticity.

Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Fix Serum contains 4% glycolic acid to retexture the skin’s appearance. Their highly effective formula contains powerful glycolic acid to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture.

Quench your skin with the Comfort Zone Hydramemory Cream Gel. This refreshing moisturiser is infused with macro Hyaluronic Acid to attract moisture to the skin. This moisturiser provides multiple skin benefits, including anti-ageing, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to promote a clearer, more radiant, and more youthful-looking complexion.

The Votary Super Seed Oil is made from 100% pure natural plant oils. Pumpkin seed oil is abundant in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, making it intensely hydrating for skin. Hemp seed oil works to increase the skin’s elasticity and to minimise fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Craft have developed a process to produce safe, sustainable and organic Bakuchiol. Bakuchiol has powerful anti-ageing benefits, as well as improving the appearance of UV related skin damage, and is known for being a natural alternative to Retinol. A 12-week clinical trial compared the effects of both bakuchiol and retinol on a selection of volunteers. The results showed that bakuchiol significantly decreased wrinkles and hyperpigmentation in the skin when applied in a cream, as well as reporting that it showed less skin irritation and less side effects when compared to retinol. We recommend using this product 1-2 times per week.
