How to make your skincare products work harder for you

Posted by Be Fraiche on

When it comes to having healthy and happy skin, the products that you choose to use are the most important step. But have you ever wondered how you can make your skincare products work harder for you?

Never fear, we’ve got the answer for you: beauty tools! These goodies will take your skincare regime up a notch, and have you on your way to glorious, glowing skin in no time. Let’s get started!

1. Boost your cleanser

Deep cleanse with a Konjac Sponge

Have you ever cleansed using a konjac sponge? These amazing sponges are made from 100% konjac fibers. They are 100% biodegradable and gentle on even the most sensitive skin, and are well loved for their soothing, gentle properties.

If you’re craving a deep cleanse but don't want the hassle of double cleansing, this is a great option for you. Give your cleanser a boost, by applying it to your wet konjac sponge, and massage it around your face and neck in circular motions. The results? A clean, dewy complexion that's soft to the touch and feels incredible!

Take your pick from our four best-selling konjac sponges, that have been infused with green tea for toning, turmeric for soothing, pink clay for softening or all natural.

Remove your makeup effectively and environmentally friendly

Did you know that our Tea Cleanser can double as a natural makeup remover?

Simply apply 1 pump onto one of our Soft Touch Cotton Pads and wipe away gently. You'll be surprised at just how much makeup this cleanser can remove – you might not need to use a separate makeup remover again!

Best of all, our Soft Touch Cotton Pads are biodegradable, reusable and washable, making them a fantastic eco-friendly option instead of disposable cotton pads. Good for your skin, good for the environment!

2. Boost your serum & facial oil

Tone and increase skin elasticity with Guasha

Guasha is an ancient Chinese medical therapy that uses a wooden or bamboo stick with different textures on it to massage your skin. This practice has been used for centuries to treat chronic pain and inflammation, and can be a great addition to your skincare regime.

Using a Guasha tool alongside our Seed Face Oil is a great way to clear your complexion and restore elasticity in your skin. It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. 

Get a facelift with Vibrating Rollers

Not sure how much pressure you should apply? Do you not trust yourself with Guasha? Vibrating Facial Rollers come to the rescue! Similar to Guasha, Vibrating Facial Rollers also stimulate blood flow and help with lymphatic drainage, both of which leave your skin feeling radiant. The best bit? You don't need to be a facial massage expert to use it!

Why not try our Uplift Vibrating Facial Roller set, featuring our new and unique rollers with vibrating technology. Let the roller do the work for you, while you’re watching TV or scrolling your phone!

Ready to maximise your serum or facial oil? Simply apply your products to your face after cleansing, and move your rollers in an upwards motion around your face. These electric vibrations will gently massage your face, helping your product absorb while stimulating blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Genius!


3. Boost your moisturiser

To get the best results from your moisturiser, there are three key steps to remember:

Apply when your skin is still damp

The best time to apply your moisturiser is straight after cleansing when your pores are open, and the skin is moist, rather than wet. When the skin is damp, it is more susceptible to absorbing the nutrients from your moisturiser, especially when it's made with powerful flower extracts and antioxidants like our Flower Face Cream.

Don't wait until your skin is dry

Dead skin cells can build up over time, which can reduce your moisturiser’s efficiency. Try to exfoliate once or twice a week to help keep the skin soft and smooth, and remember to always apply your moisturiser within the first 15 minutes after showering or cleansing, to really lock all that moisture in.

Don't forget your neck and decolletage

While it’s important to moisturise your face, don’t forget to give some extra special attention to your neck and decolletage too! Often the first areas to show signs of aging, your neck and decolletage are prone to dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, so be sure to spend some time massaging these areas. You’ll feel like a million buck when you’re done!

4. Get the best out of your skincare in general:

Use quality products

The products that you choose make all the difference to your skin health. Try to look for products which don’t contain too many nasties, and opt for simple, natural ingredients that will leave your skin feeling soft, happy and healthy.  

Exfoliate weekly

A regular, gentle exfoliation will help to remove dead skin cells and keep your skin feeling refreshed – which in turn helps your makeup stay on longer and your skincare absorb faster.

Apply your skincare in the correct order
