A Complete (and Kind!) Beauty Routine

IMG_5483We boast a varied collection beauty and wellbeing  products, many of which promote the idea of slow living (or low beauty), in which focus is placed on using natural and organic ingredients where possible – helping to prove that beauty products do not necessarily have to contain chemicals and synthetic ingredients to be effective in addressing skins’ needs.

We have developed a complete beauty regime for use both in the morning and evening using brands that we stock here at Domestic Science. We want to demonstrate that your daily routine can be both kind to your skin and effective in addressing particular concerns.

Cleanse – Tone – Serum – Oils – Moisturise – Weekly Treats

Cleanse

Evolve Cleansing

Cleansing is the first step that should be taken to ensure that all traces of dirt and bacteria are removed. Finding a cleanser that also protects the skins barrier layer is important to ensure that natural oils are not stripped from the skin.

We stock the Evolve Gentle Cleansing Melt which helps cleanse the skin whilst simultaneously nourishing and protecting the skin.

Double Cleanse

 

It is advised to double cleanse your skin in the evening if you have a particularly oily skin type. We recommend following your cleansing melt with a micellar water to ensure that all traces of make and dirt has been removed. We love the Micellar water by Evolve, a lotion which contains micro molecules to lift and remove the last traces of dirt. This Evolve lotion also contains hyaluronic acid and organic pomegranate help to lock in skins moisture and protect it from environmental damage.

Weekly Treats

Face Mask

Applying a face mask has become a staple in weekly self care rituals. Treating yourself once a week to a mask suited to your skin concerns will have you set up for the week ahead.

Evolve Glow Mask
We love Evolve’s Glow mask, blended with raw cacao powder and clay, it helps to revitalise and purify the skin whilst its coconut granules exfoliates to smooth skin . Fragranced with Organic Vanilla oil, this mask smells good enough to eat! It is the ultimate weekly skin treat.

Facial Scrub
Applying a facial scrub once a week or fortnight can be beneficial in effectively removing dead skin cells, helping to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. Cherry Essentials Shiva Bee Facial Scrub contains almonds and honey to reveal this new glowy skin while the peppermint essential oil awakens and rejuvenates.
