How to mix and match your skincare routine
Advertorial: Because our skin’s needs can change daily
We get it - achieving healthy-looking skin that’s smooth, plump and naturally luminous can seem like a never-ending quest. A classic skincare routine that consists of cleansing, toning and moisturising may have once served a purpose, but the truth is, it’s important to mix and match products daily to give our skin what it really needs.
Here’s how to personalise your skincare routine with Sukin products (they have over 70 natural, Australian-made and 100% vegan products that can be used by most skin types) by mixing and matching to suit your top skin concerns on any given day.
#1 / Observe your skin
The condition of your skin can change constantly due to daily aggressors like sun exposure, pollution, hydration levels and even the foods you eat. It’s important to keep an eye on what your skin looks like daily and learn how to adjust the products you’re using to best treat its current condition.
And just because it’s called a “skincare routine” doesn’t mean that it has to feel like a mundane task to look after it; you should be free to use different products for when your skin really needs it. A solid skincare collection can feature up to seven or eight products, which you can use interchangeably.
For example, you may choose to use the Sukin Oil Balancing Pore Refining Facial Scrub twice a week if you have oily skin and need to draw out impurities and reduce uneven texture, but you may also want to use the Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Masque once a week, to ensure that you are still getting light hydration, nutrients and antioxidants into the skin.
Or when your skin is feeling parched after a hot summer’s day, you may want to use Sukin Moisture Restoring Night Cream instead of the Sukin Facial Moisturiser for a more potent hit of hydrating ingredients like rosehip oil, evening primrose oil and jojoba to restore any lost moisture.
Even if you’re looking for different ways to take your makeup off, Sukin has a number of options. The Micellar Cleansing Water is great for everyday use, and can be used to take off waterproof eye makeup gently. On the other hand, if your skin is looking more dull than usual, you may choose to swap to the Super Greens Cleansing Oil, which will effectively dissolve makeup while giving your skin a dose of nourishing ingredients to help restore radiance.
Even those with sensitive skin can get in on mixing and matching their skincare routine because all products from Sukin (even if they’re not labeled as sensitive) have gentle formulas that are infused with caring and soothing ingredients such as aloe vera and avocado oil.
#2 / Equip yourself with the essentials
If you’re looking to build a solid skincare kit that you can always rely on and that your skin will thank you for, make sure you have these three products stocked at all times.
Sukin’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is made with 100% pure rosehip oil, and it’s ace at quickly relieving dry or itchy skin, hydrating deep into the skin’s surface and making your complexion look naturally radiant. For those with sensitive skin, this is a great option to try as it is fragrance- and irritant-free, so it won’t cause skin to flare-up after use.
A toner like Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner is a portable option that can keep your skin hydrated through the day. Most importantly, this toner is alcohol-free and contains rosewater and chamomile to soothe skin instantly. In warmer months, if you’re looking to really refresh your complexion, keep a bottle of this in the fridge and mist it all over when you need to quench thirsty skin throughout the day.
Maintain healthy skin with a daily moisturiser such as Sukin Super Greens Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser, which is fast-absorbing and delivers nourishing ingredients like jojoba, goji and acai berry extracts into skin to keep it looking healthy while fighting the signs of ageing. This product also contains a supercharged greens blend of kale, spirulina, chlorella and parsley to help you get that radiant complexion.
