If you are an avid 3 step beauty queen, or are looking to give your skin an extra boost, you may be intrigued to know about the fourth step you can include in your daily skincare regime “repair” which comes after toning and before moisturising.

  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Repair
  4. Moisturise

Repair products target a particular concern such as dehydration, sun damage and age spots, wrinkles, dull skin or open pores, and are more concentrated than a moisturiser. They do not carry SPFs since unlike moisturisers, repair products do exactly as their name suggests and repair existing damage or problems. (A moisturiser's main purpose is to protect your skin). They can be used morning and evening, although you may choose to address different concerns and therefore use one type of repair product in the morning and another in the evening. Repair products can work very effectively in the long term. For more information on serums and to find out which are some of our favourite repair products are, read Choosing A Serum.
