Back to skincare basics! How to create an effective skincare routine from scratch.

If you’re just starting to look into skincare, we understand it can be overwhelming and confusing.

Not only must you learn the processes required for optimal cellular health, but you must also learn what every product does and how it can benefit your skin.

If you’ve been asking yourself ‘where do I start with skincare?’, today we’re going to give you everything you need to create a simple yet effective skincare routine containing every essential step…And don’t worry, it’s not quite as complex as you’ve been led to believe!

Morning and evening skincare routine

An effective skincare routine is broken down into two parts.

Morning and evening.

Otherwise known as AM and PM, or before work and after work.

However, you choose to word it, you need to focus on skincare at the start and end of every day.

For the sake of simplicity, we’ll call the two routines morning and evening with the first routine beginning as soon as you lift your head off the pillow!

Morning skincare routine

Step one: Cleanse

While you might not be in the habit of cleansing to start the day, you must remove the dirt and impurities that have accumulated on the skin’s surface before applying more products and makeup.

As you sleep, the skin repairs itself so when you wake, a light layer of cells, dust and sweat particles – as well as any other impurities – can already be working to block the pores.

The morning cleanse removes all dirt and prepares the skin’s surface to receive the active ingredients found in your multi-use serum.

Step two: Apply Biologi multi-use serum of choice

Put simply, a multi-use serum is one product that relies on the power of active ingredients to treat a range of skincare concerns. Consumers have become accustomed to choosing products based on the concern (such as dry skin, acne, anti-ageing etc) but when you learn to choose products based on the performance of the active ingredients, it’s time to say goodbye to all the creams and moisturisers each serving a different purpose and choose one multi-use serum to complete the ritual instead.

Step three: Apply sunscreen

The only way to protect the skin from the harmful impact of the UV rays is to apply sunscreen daily. Use a SPF of at least 30 to 50 on any day you plan to step outside (even if the sun isn’t shining, the harmful rays still penetrate the skin leading to irreversible damage).

Not a myth – sunscreen is one of the most vital steps to healthy skin!

Evening skincare routine 

Step one: Wash face with a damp microfibre cloth

After a long day out and about, one cleanse isn’t enough.

Always remove makeup and surface impurities from the face with a damp microfibre cloth. The microfibre technology grabs dirt particles from the skin’s surface and lifts them away from the face to allow for a thorough clean.

Step two: Cleanse with a serum cleanser

The second evening cleanse relies on hardworking active ingredients to treat the pores and remove dirt on a deeper level. Just like the morning cleanse, this vital step in any evening skincare routine removes all dirt and prepares the skin’s surface to receive the active ingredients found in your multi-use serum.

Bc Refresh Cleanser is made from soapberry extract. Free from synthetic foaming agents, Bc Refresh Cleanser is highly effective at washing away impurities while leaving essential natural oils intact to avoid drying out the skin. We recommend repeating twice if wearing make-up.

Step three: Apply multi-use serum of choice

The night-time ritual is where you choose the hard-working actives that nourish and restore the skin while you sleep.

Exfoliate once to twice a week

Once a week, exfoliate the face, neck and décolletage to remove dead skin cells and encourage cellular turnover for a brighter, clearer complexion.

Not only does regular exfoliation leave your skin smooth and bright, but it can also keep pores clear to avoid oily skin, facial blemishes and pimples.

Bx Reveal is a powerful phyto-active powder exfoliant designed for use with Bc Refresh Cleanser.

This unique formula of Oryza Sativa (rice powder) is supercharged with Terminalia ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) powder and developed to provide superior skin results.

When applied together, the powerful duo creates a creamy soft textured formula that aims to smooth, polish and brighten all skin types.

Used once to twice a week, your skin will reap the benefits of vital phyto-actives and nutrients that help build hydration and antioxidant protection whilst gently polishing and removing dull surface cells, to reveal a smoother, brighter and more even skin tone.

Cleansing and exfoliation treatment ritual directions

  • Using one sachet of the Bx Reveal Exfoliant, place into a small bowl, add two to three pumps of Bc Refresh Cleanser and mix to a silky consistency.
  • Apply to face, neck and decolletage and leave for five minutes.
  • While the Bx Reveal Exfoliant mask is working, try doing some deep breathing exercises to encourage fresh oxygen into your body.
  • Breathe in deeply through the nose, letting your belly rise, then release the breath through the mouth, gently and naturally letting go.
  • Remove the exfoliant with a microfibre cloth and pat dry skin.

Non-negotiable skincare products

While it can be overwhelming to know where to start, here are the essential products needed for an effective skincare routine:

Make skincare a habit

The best way to learn what your skin wants, and needs is to make skincare a habit. Create a sustainable morning, evening and exfoliation ritual and commit to following it daily so you can observe how the skin responds to products and how it changes on a month-to-month cycle.

*Disclaimer: While Bx Reveal is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types, there are some cases where exfoliation isn’t suitable.

If you have an impaired barrier function, chronic skin conditions, your skin is red or inflamed or if you take Roaccutane or any vitamin A derivative, you should speak to a skincare expert before exfoliation.
