Is it Enough to Just Cleanse & Moisturise?

Is it Enough to Just Cleanse & Moisturise?

Cleansing and moisturising are the essential foundations to any skincare routine but there are also lots of other steps that can be included. We often hear from customers that have been dedicated followers of cleansing and moisturising, embracing the process night and day for years. But these days the world of skincare has advanced so much that there are lots of other steps that have found their way into an everyday face routine. They got there with good reason as they can have excellent anti-ageing benefits. This is especially true with exfoliators and face treatments.

With Nakin’s range cleansers and moisturisers your skin receives excellent care from the power of plants, and our face creams also act as primers, so you would not need to use one of them before applying make-up. Cleansing and moisturising are the most important steps, but you might also like to include treatments such as a serum or face oil, for the extra anti-ageing benefits. Exfoliation is also good to include in your routine if it is not currently part of it. You can find all of our cleansers, treatments and moisturisers online here.

Skincare Beyond Basics: Why Cleansing and Moisturising May Not Suffice

Taking care of your skin is a fundamental part of any daily routine, and while the cleanse-moisturise duo has been the cornerstone of skincare for decades, it is no longer the gold standard for achieving optimal skin health. To truly cater to your skin’s unique needs and combat specific concerns, additional steps like serums, oils, and treatments have become indispensable.

Going Deeper Than the Surface: The Limitations of Cleansing and Moisturising

Cleansing clears away impurities, while moisturising helps protect and maintain hydration. However, skin woes like premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and texture irregularities require targeted interventions that these steps might not provide.

Serums: Potent Elixirs for Targeted Concerns

Serums are concentrated formulations designed to penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a high dose of active ingredients. They can address a myriad of concerns and our anti-ageing serum contains a peptide that promotes collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Serums can contain lots of intensive actives that also help even out skin tone. Hydrating serums like ours contain hyaluronic acid which attract moisture to the deeper layers of the skin, providing more profound hydration than a moisturiser alone.

Oils: The Nourishing Boost Your Skin Craves

Face oils, once misunderstood for their potential to exacerbate oily skin, are now hailed for their ability to support the skin's protective barrier, lock in moisture, and provide essential fatty acids. Different oils offer unique benefits, and any plant oils mimic the skin’s natural sebum, regulating oil production. They are also full of antioxidants and vitamins, enhancing skin regeneration and elasticity. Oils are renowned for their nourishing properties, making them a saviour for dry, sensitive and flaky skin.

Gentle Exfoliation for Your Skin

Treatments such as exfoliants, can offer more in-depth renewal results that everyday cleansing cannot match. Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, revealing bright, fresh skin underneath.

Your skin is a complex organ with diverse needs that go beyond the capacity of a basic cleanse and moisturise routine. By incorporating serums, oils, and specialised treatments into your regimen, you can proactively address specific issues and maintain your skin's health. Remember, skincare is an investment—and a comprehensive approach may yield dividends in the form of a radiant, resilient complexion.
