After each visit to Skin Laundry we recommend a handful of tips and tricks to make the most out of your laser facial, all which will help to keep your face fresh in between sessions. First & foremost, we ask that the clients refrain from wearing make up for the rest of the day if possible – it is not a MUST but it will definitely benefit the skin by staying bare for as long as possible to prolong the post-laser glow.
Once home, it’s vital to implement a regimental routine where you are washing your face every day in the both the morning and the evening. We love using our cleansers, followed strictly by the toner to remove all excess dirt and bacteria from the face. Newly lasered skin is also extremely susceptible to UV damage, so it’s more important than ever to slather on the SPF. A few days after the treatment, we also suggest applying our brightening serum with glycolic acid once a day. This concentrated anti-aging mega serum helps brighten dark spots, even skin tone and texture, tighten and refresh. It contains a powerful combination of antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids and natural extracts that work together to help protect, repair and resurface skin, without irritation.
Other top tips include:
Introduce the SleepCycle pillowcases!
During sleep, your pillowcase absorbs oil, dirt, germs and dead skin cells from your face. This happens every night, only to transfer it back to your skin the next evening. It's a vicious cycle. In current times, the pillowcase is your best friend as it is in fact a breeding ground for bacteria. The SleepCycle™ Pillowcase provides a natural anti-microbial effect to help reduce the presence of harmful bacteria. Use it every night to help maintain cleaner, clearer skin while you sleep.
Always keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least 2 litres of water per day. A common mistake people make is tarring dehydrated and dry skin with the same brush. Dehydrated skin is a lack of water, not oil. So, you can actually have an oily complexion but still have dehydrated skin. Our Ultra Hydration Boost also helps – the product instantly nourishes and plumps the skin and contains skin-protecting antioxidants, a wrinkle softening peptide, and hyaluronic acid (HA) that penetrates deeply for a lasting reservoir of moisture and long-term radiance. Whereas most Hyaluronic Acid moisturizers can be are very heavy and greasy, this weightless innovative formula can be applied as a mist, penetrates deeply with no residue, and is suitable for all skin types.
Keep your make up brushes clean at all times, cleaning at least twice a week.
Our cleansers double up as a magnificent brush cleaner which deep clean without damaging the bristles of the brush. Make sure you wash your brushes at least twice a week to stop the spread of bacteria.
