Did you know that people from South Korea has been proven to have most amazing and beautiful skin in the world?
We have been Googling and trying the skincare they use for ages. And the secret is double cleansing, yes cleansing your skin with two different cleansers, twice a day… So, now we are lucky that we don’t need to go looking and trying to translate from Korean the products we are interested in and we don’t need to translate how to use it or what it does to our skin. We have something like this and freshly made rght here in the UK, in Surrey. There's no need to go to Korea for these products...
The brand I am talking about is called Tropic and it is totally divine, vegan, cruelty free and carbon neutral and the fastest growing British beauty brand. When I discovered Tropic, I was completely blown away not just by their ethics but by the products itself.
Let me reveal how to get the most gorgeous skin you've ever had. Believe me if you follow these steps, you will have the most beautiful, hydrated skin not just on your wedding day but for the rest of your life.
Step One – cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day
Okay, so first thing is to religiously follow cleanse, tone and moisturise routine twice a day.
Start and finish your day with most beautiful cream Smoothing Cleanser. It is Tropic number one bestseller and you will see why from the very first time you use it. It effectively removes makeup, pollution, and dirt without stripping the skin. Massage 2-4 pumps onto dry skin on the face and neck. Rinse your Bamboo Face Cloth, that it comes with, in warm water and wipe away cleanser and excess makeup. You will see straight away that your complexion will be clearer, brighter, and fresher.
Step Two – second cleanse with Clear Skies
Can I hear your drums here please because this is where I am going to reveal the king of second cleansing?
So, as I mentioned before, with roots in K-beauty (South Korean beauty), the concept of double cleansing has grown in popularity worldwide – they would melt the dirt and makeup with oil based cleanser first, just like our Smoothing Cleanser and then they would follow it with something that would really get deep in the skin and this is where our Clear Skies cleansing powder comes in. Honestly, this is a revolutionary cleansing powder that when activated with water becomes a beautiful foamy texture. So, what makes it so special? It contains two types of encapsulated plant enzymes to target impurities. The first, lipase, breaks down fat-based impurities (sebum, excess oils), and the second, protease, breaks down protein-based impurities (dead skin cells), for an effective cleanse. Its pure blue colour comes from detoxifying blue spirulina. Mix half a teaspoon with a few drops of water. Massage onto your whole face for 1 minute, rinse and voila you have skin that is visibly clearer, fresher, and more refined.
Step Three – second cleanse with Clear Skies
After this effective double cleansing steps your skin deserves some balancing – use Vitamin Toner for this.
It is packed full of innovative micro-dispersed oil and water particles to make it even more hydrating, as oil acts as a vehicle for the water to travel deeper into the skin’s epidermis. It acts as a barrier for pores, preventing them from being clogged with dirt and bacteria. Just mist over your face and neck, then leave to sink in or pat the skin until absorbed and your skin’s pH will be instantly balanced, your complexion will be brighter and more refined. I love using it during the day as well to refresh and sooth my skin on the go. Forgot to mention – the smell is absolutely to die for!
Step Four – moisturise your skin
And the last step in your daily cleansing routine is to moisturise your skin.
Our Skin Feast nourishing cream concentrate will become your daily moisturising hero, packed with a feast of 20 skin-loving plant, fruit and flower extracts. It contains antioxidant-rich Australian kakadu plum extract to brighten skin, berry seed oils that intensivily nourish the skin and ectoin and hyaluronic acid that provides the skin with long-lasting hydration. Apply 1-3 pumps onto your face and neck using upward, circular motions. Your skin by now will be super-soft, smooth and nourished.
If you follow all these steps, I can promise you, your skin will be most beautiful to apply makeup on. I can notice straight away when my clients have most gorgeous, plum and hydrated skin, of course it makes my job so much easier as anything what I apply on their skin just sinks in beautifully rather than sitting on the top of dehydrated, unhealthy skin. Here, at Tropic, we like to call our skincare as food for your skin, just as your daily diet for your body with Tropic skincare you are actually feeding your skin.
