PRO Tips 

Get The Temperature Right

Use lukewarm water for rinsing - not too hot or too cold. Cold water doesn't effectively remove the daily dirt, and hot water may dry out and irritate your skin. Warm water helps to lift the dirt but preserves your skin's natural hydrating oils.

Rinse Thoroughly

Not rinsing properly may lead to residue build-up which can cause breakouts and skin irritation and reduce the results of your treatment products that follow.

Dry With Caution

Make sure to pat your skin dry gently and avoid rubbing your skin which can cause irritation.

Ideally, a mini face towel that can be used once or twice should be used to dry your face or use facial tissues instead to avoid transferring bacteria.

Your skin is now ready for your serummoisturiser & SPF with these simple steps.
