24 HOUR SKINCARE


No rest for the wicked! Protect, nourish, de-stress and revive your skin with around-the-clock care for a flawless face.

Like you, your skin cells have different functions at certain times of the day. There’s a time to rest, a time to repair, and even a time to eat. So if this is the case, why would we not match our skin care routine with the nutrients that support these different stages?

Tim Ferriss submerged himself in ice to see how much fat he would burn, Dave Asprey made a dollop of grease in your bulletproof coffee a thing, and Sarah Wilson cheated auto-immune disease with her sugar-free diet. Luckily you don’t need to torture yourself with any dubious experiments to see what works – the clever aestheticians, doctors and botanists have already done the heavy lifting for you.

All you need to do is simply program your skin routine to line up with your busy schedule to give it the TLC you need as you eat, sleep, rave, repeat.

So what does a 24-hour skincare routine actually look like? Fear not – we have your back with this day-and-night prescription…

MORNING: 6am

This Works Stress Check Face Mask

On waking, your skin may feel sensitive and slightly redder in response to the restorative processes that has taken place overnight.

This Works Stress Check Face Mask focuses on de-stressing red, inflamed or acne prone problem complexions. A calming mask-like-cream containing ‘This Works’ signature Bio-Boost Botanical Oil Blend as well as Peppermint Extract to cool, calm and refresh the skin. Antioxidant rich Turmeric Oil, extract of Giant Hysop and Rose Root help to protect skin for internal and external stressors. Tip: apply first thing to instantly calm irritated skin and prevent the appearance of premature ageing.

Damage caused over time can lead to dull, dehydrated & tired-looking skin. Hydrogen, like the patented technology found in MD’s H2 Energy ComplexRange , works to activate and energise surface skin cells by simultaneously transforming cellular energy and delivering a powerful boost of hydration and boy does it do that!

BATH: 7pm

REN Morroccan Rose Otto Body Range

It’s been a long, hard day at the office and your feet are killing you. As soon as you get home, the first thing you want to do is run yourself a soothing, hot bath.

Wine contains sulphates, which may cause puffiness, even in the most regular grape enthusiasts.

Beautiful skin starts with a good night’s sleep as it’s during this period of physical and mental rest that your skin moves into repair mode.
