Skincare sure does sound tricky. After all, we’ve all got different skin types and genes, so finding A’s to your Q’s can be puzzling to some. Not to underestimate your questions here, but it’s all about finding the right routine and products (I know we make it sound so simple).
Today is your lucky day. Our team has compiled some of your biggest skin concerns, so read on, ‘cause you might just find the yin to your (skincare) yang!
What can I do to get a clear complexion?
The clue to a clear complexion is having clean, tight pores. Dirt and pollution build-ups clog your pores and trust us, it’s a highway to skincare problems such as acne and comedones. Clay masking once to twice a week is highly recommended to treat troubled skin and make sure you drink enough water to help your cells regenerate!
My face is sometimes very dry, sometimes oily. What should I do?
So you've got combination skin. It is actually the most common skin type, and the perfect routine is just as easy as ABC! We recommend cleansing your face daily with our Deep Pore Cleanser to remove dirt and makeup, and masque twice to three times a week to detoxify and tighten pores with our Porefining Pink Clay Mask.
Skin hydration is vital, but let's stay away from the heavy formulas, shall we? Pat our Tasmanian Spring Water Splash Serum onto your skin to strengthen its barrier and finish off with our Hydration Boost Cream. Being super light and completely nourishing, this range ensures lasting protection without the greasy feel.
How do I get rid of wrinkles & fine lines?
While we can’t deny that it’s human to get wrinkles and age, we can prevent and treat wrinkles with the right ingredients. Ageing skin craves for hydration and collagen boost to prevent the loss of elasticity (thus, wrinkles).
Our Australian Emu Apple range is rich in Kakadu Plum (the world’s richest source of Vit C, hello!) and polyphenols which can reduce wrinkles by up to 40%. It also has a one-of-a-kind Hyaluronic Acid blend to restore skin bounciness and hydration. Top it off with our Tasmanian Spring Water range that battles fine lines and deeply nourishes the skin. Say hello to youthful, glowing skin!
I have a lot of redness on my face what should I do?
Compromised skin barriers often lead to redness. External aggressors such as pollution, extreme weather, and abrasive chemicals can thin out the important layers of the skin, making our skin more fragile and sensitive. Fortifying your skin barrier is essential to fight these aggressors on a daily basis.
Give your skin some love with our Healthy Hydration kit. The unique ingredients such as Tasmanian Spring Water, Sea Kelp and Bifida Ferment help strengthen skin barrier and nourish it from within. It's no wonder they are proven to reduce redness by 45%!
Wearing face masks all day is giving me maskne. Best routine?
If this ain’t #us. Continuous use of face masks can suffocate our skin and clog our pores. Treat your face with a good cleanser and mask to draw out impurities and buildups on our covered-everyday skin. Our Australian Pink Clay Deep Pore Cleanser exfoliates gently with AHA and Luffa plant extract and safe for AM/PM use.
If you haven’t already, don’t forget to add in our best-selling Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask to your routine. This clay mask is a magnet for toxins and will tackle maskne without drying your skin any further. Incorporate it two to three times a week and be ready to see the difference on your complexion!
How do I treat spots and hyperpigmentation?
The answer is to get yourself familiar with our hero, vitamin C! It works by impeding melanin production and fading spots with regular use. Vitamin C also evens out skin tone, making your face look glowy and fresh. They key is to find a stable yet effective formula.
Try our Australian Emu Apple Dreamy Glow Drops Serum that is packed with Ethyl Ascorbic Acid and Kakadu plum, making it a powerful daily serum which you can totally count on. Complete your routine with SPF to prevent UV rays daily and supercharge the glow with our Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask 2-3 times a week.
Can I get rid of blackheads for good?
This sounds frustrating, but a one-off treatment won’t banish blackheads for good. But hey, we’ve got you an easy fix! Remember to clean your pores by clay masking and exfoliate to keep blackheads at bay. While we love BHA in salicylic acid, this ingredient can be quite harsh to some. Try bamboo and macadamia extracts in our Flash Perfection Exfoliator for a gentler alternative. This exfoliator resurfaces and extracts dead skin cells and blackheads, leaving your skin feeling extra smooth and fresh with regular use.
I have an oily skin, do I need to moisturize?
We’ve got this question many times, and the answer is still yes! Oily skin needs hydration just as much as dry skin does. Rule of the game? Keep it straightforward to avoid excess sebum production. Pick a moisturizer that adapts to oily skin and sinks perfectly right after application (read: our Tasmanian Spring Water Hydration Boost Cream). We love its gel-cream formula that instantly hydrates and locks in moisture, making it the best ally for oily-combo skin!
Can you recommend two skincare routines for men?
It's no secret that men love our products too. We are proud of our no-nasties formula and our commitment to bring the best of Aussie botanicals to everyone. Still unsure how to find the right routine for you?
Help is here.
How often should you exfoliate?
Sometimes we still doubt the importance of exfoliation because we’re afraid of overdoing it. While there is no black and white rule when it comes to the frequency, it is recommended to do chemical/ physical peeling 2-3 times a week for best results. However, some products are safe enough to use on a daily basis due to their low chemical/ abrasive contents.
Want daily exfoliation? Sand & Sky’s Australian Pink Clay Deep Pore Cleanser is your trustworthy friend! Our ever-favorite gel cleanser resurfaces and exfoliates your skin daily without stripping off the moisture. The unique blend of Australian Fingerlime Extract and Luffa Plant provide effective exfoliation to combat excess oil and large pores, leaving your skin incredibly juicy and fresh.
Up for some chemical peel? Australian Emu Apple Enzyme Powder Polish is the one to look for! This water-activated powder is rich in vitamin C from Australia's beloved Kakadu Plum and Emu Apple, making it a powerhouse for a glowy, smooth skin.
Cheers to a better, brighter skin ahead!
