The multi-million dollar question.

How to Achieve Great Skin

Achieving great skin involves a combination of good skincare practices, a healthy lifestyle, and regular maintenance. When asked how we get great skin, well… here’s what we advice:

1. Cleanse: Start your day and end your day with a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type. Cleansing helps remove dirt, oil, and impurities that can clog pores and lead to breakouts.

2. Exfoliate: 2-3 times a week, exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath. Use a physical exfoliant (like a scrub) or a chemical exfoliant (like products containing alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acids).

3. Moisturize: Hydrate your skin with a good quality moisturizer appropriate for your skin type. Moisturizing helps maintain the skin’s natural barrier and prevents dryness and irritation.

4. Protect: Apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every morning, even on cloudy days. Sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing premature aging, sunburn, and skin cancer.

5. Healthy Diet: Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Foods high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can help nourish your skin from the inside out.

6. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and maintain its elasticity.

7. Get Enough Sleep: Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. During sleep, your body repairs and rejuvenates your skin, helping it look fresh and vibrant.

8. Manage Stress: Chronic stress can take a toll on your skin, leading to breakouts and dullness. Practice stress-reducing techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises.

9. Exercise Regularly: Physical activity improves blood circulation, which nourishes your skin cells and helps carry away waste products. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. See this.

10. Avoid Harsh Products: Limit the use of harsh skincare products, as they can strip your skin of its natural oils and disrupt its balance. Instead, opt for gentle, non-comedogenic products formulated for your skin type.

11. Consult a Dermatologist: If you have specific skin concerns or conditions, consider consulting a dermatologist or one of us at for personalized advice and treatment options.

Consistency is key when it comes to skincare, so give your skin time.
