If mask-wearing has your skin looking dull and freaking out we have your fix.

Step 1 - Cleanse

The first step to happy skin is the perfect level of cleansing. Too strong and your skin becomes stripped and sensitive. Too little and breakouts can ensue. Dermaceutic Advanced Cleanser is a velvety foaming cleanser that cuts through excess oil and make-up while staying gentle and hydrating. It's suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and rosacea-prone skins.

Step 2 - Exfoliate

We love Dermaceutic Mask 15 because it's a multi-tasking Clay mask with AHA and BHA exfoliants for chemical exfoliation. The Bentonite Clay formula gently lifts impurities from pores, while Glycolic and Salicylic Acids break up dead cell build-up, unclogs blocked pores and regulates excess oil. We love to apply this all over once per week and massage till dry to further help break up stubborn congestion.

Step 3 - At Home Treatment

The Dermal Hub LED Light Shield Mask brings your favourite LED in-clinic treatment to the comfort of your home. This sleek and compact design emits LED light in the visible and invisible spectra (wavelengths around 460nm-630nm), the same as 'in-clinic treatments, but for a fraction of the cost. LED light therapy is normally an in-clinic treatment. Now we've made it available for you to use easily at home. We love the clear front which enables you to go about your life while you use it. For best results, we recommend using this cordless LED Light Shield Mask daily at home to help rejuvenate your skin, reduce pigmentation and wrinkles, and combat acne.

Step 4 - Serum

Serums are the heavy lifters of the skincare world. If you want to see visible improvements, serums are essential. Our favourite solutions for glow, firmness and smoothing is Vitamin C and Retinol (Vitamin A).

For daytime, we recommend Dermaceutic Tri Vita C Serum which contains 3 different types of Vitamin C in a time-release formula. The formulation penetrates down to the deepest layers of the skin to directly stimulate collagen in the dermis, reducing signs of premature ageing, sun damage and pigmentation.

For night Dermaceutic Active Retinol 0.5% is our go-to.

This potent retinol serum is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It improves skin tone and texture and reduces the appearance of premature ageing. We recommend applying a small amount to clean skin every night under moisturiser.

Step 5 - Eye Cream

Want a nourishing, anti-ageing eye cream with antioxidants to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and brighten the eye area? Then Medik8 Advanced Day Eye Protect is for you. Apply a small amount around the eye area to firm, de-puff and brighten the skin under your eyes.

Step 6 - Hydrate and Protect

Constant mask-wearing and #lockdownlife can take their toll on your skin, which is exactly the reason behind the Dermal Hub S.O.S Day & Night formulations. This day/night duo provides your skin with 24/7 protection from the effects of isolation and excessive mask-wearing. Apply the S.O.S Barrier Cream during the day to help support your skin's natural barrier function. Apply the S.O.S Recovery Cream before bedtime to help soothe your skin, balance oil production, and restore natural moisture overnight.
