Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Sarah says she often finds that cleansing is a hugely underrated step and overlooked by so many. Removing any grime, makeup, pollution and sebum that has collected in the pores will allow your skin to function properly, as well as enabling your other skincare products to penetrate.
Sarah recommends choosing an oil‐based cleanser, as this will be most effective at breaking down other oils like sebum or makeup residue, without upsetting the skin’s delicate acid mantle. Oil attracts oil, allowing your cleanser to melt into your pores to break down any blockages, leaving skin purified but not dry or tight. Take some time to really massage your chosen formula into your face and neck, or apply a generous layer before a warm bath or shower for a deep cleanse.
