HYDRATION = GLOW

As winter nears and we move into the colder months, the weather can leave our skin looking lacklustre. Forget dewy foundations and shimmering highlighters, the centre to getting hydrated, glowing skin starts from the base, with good skincare.

Let us guide you to a glowing complexion with our Aqua range.

GIVE YOUR SKIN SOME TLC

Looking after your skin by giving it the care and attention it needs, is the best way to revive a dull and dry appearance. We recommend using a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skins natural oils. Our Aquagel Oil to Foam Cleanser will melt away your makeup and lock in moisture, ensuring your skin stays hydrated throughout the day and night.

HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE

A crucial step to glowing skin is using a good, hydrating toner. A lot of people are either skipping this step entirely or are using products that are doing more harm to their skin than good.

So, why add a toner to your skincare regime?

A toner completes the cleansing stage of your regime . You want to avoid toners that include alcohol in their ingredients list, as they are prone to drying out the skin (and this won’t help get you glowing). Our Aquagel Refreshing Toner includes sea salt, manuka honey and marine collagen – all working together to deeply cleanse pores, retain moisture and brighten your complexion.

DAILY GLOW

You need moisture to GLOW. During the day, use a lightweight lotion, like our Aqualight Moisture Gel Lotion, as it layers nicely under makeup while giving your skin the hydration it needs. The marine collagen and Pohutukawa ingredients deeply moisturise and soften the skin while promoting cell regeneration. Don’t forget about the skin under your eyes either! Our Aqua Restore Eye Essence hydrates the under-eye area and helps brighten dark circles.

During the day it’s also important to hydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water (yes you’ve heard this one before, but it does actually work!) Your skin is an organ, and without getting a enough water, the lack of hydration will make your skin dry, tight, and possibly flaky (no thanks).

BEAUTY SLEEP

It’s finally time to relax and unwind for the day, and your night time skincare routine is a reminder to take a moment for yourself and look after your skin. We love using ingredients such as Kawakawa, L22 and manuka honey, which help retain moisture overnight to ensure your skin is prepped and glowing for the busy day that follows. It’s important to clean your skin from impurities and then use a hydrating cream while you sleep. For nights your skin is needing an extra boost of hydrating, lather your skin in our Aqua Hydrating Masque to instantly restore critical moisture to a dry complexion.
