Here at M1 Med Beauty, we are passionate about helping our customers achieve their beauty goals. Whether this be through our injectables or our skincare products, we believe you can look and feel your best with a little help from our professionals. M1 Med Beauty has revolutionised skin care by creating a cruelty free skin care line that uses innovative formulas to hydrate, nourish and repair your skin. These products have been developed by expert Dermatologists and Doctors. In collaboration with these professionals, we present you with a skin care routine that you can easily follow on a daily basis!

Step 1: The first step to your daily routine is to get rid of any makeup that is on your face. A great way to do this is by going in with an oil cleanser. This is a great way to naturally break down the makeup on your face so that it all comes off. Apply a 20 cent sized amount of cleanser to your face and rub until the makeup is all smudged and broken down. Wash your face with water and you should be left makeup free. 

Step 2: The second step to your daily routine is to cleanse your face again! The double cleansing system is the perfect way to make sure your face is properly clean. It is commonly known that washing your face daily with products that are designed to safely cleanse your face, is extremely beneficial for your skin! Washing your face with bar soap can damage the outer protective layer of your skin, leading to wrinkles and acne. There are many cleansers out there that are designed for certain skin types. If you have acne prone skin, using a cleanser with Salycilic, Glycolic or lactic acid will help to prevent and rid your skin of blemishes and acne. If you have sensitive skin, it is best to stick to cleansers that are designed for sensitive skin and to stay away from perfumes, artificial ingredients and colours in your cleanser! Follow the instructions on the back of the product for application. 

Step 3: After you have cleansed, towel dry your face or allow it to dry naturally. Pick up your favourite toner and apply evenly to your face. This is the last step in making sure there is no dirt left on your face before applying other products. Now you can use a toner. Toners are best applied with a cotton or reusable makeup pad, however mist toners can be applied directly to the face. Toners help to set the right Ph levels of your facial skin, as environmental factors can often unbalance this causing issues. 

Step 4: Now it’s time to use a serum! A great daily serum to use that is recommended by dermatologists is one including the substance Hyaluronic acid. This is naturally occurring in our skin and acts to draw in moisture. By applying this daily, you are hydrating your skin and preventing acne, wrinkles and enlarged pores from forming. It is amazing what hydration can do! We recommend using the M1 SELECT PURE SERUM as it is a hyaluronic holy grail. It contains highly concentrated hyaluronic acid in different molecular masses, and is a uniquely formulated serum to deeply moisturise the skin and, when used regularly, provides more elasticity and firmness – for a fresh, radiant complexion and noticeably smoother skin. Apply a small amount evenly to your face in the morning or evening. 

Step 5: Finally, apply your favourite moisturiser. Moisturisers can come in many different forms such as creams, oils and gels. There are many products designed to target certain issues you are having with your skin, and also some great daily maintenance moisturisers. If you prefer using oils, argan or rosehip oil are fabulous, as they contain many vitamins, antioxidants and are anti-inflammatory. If you prefer gels or creams, we have some great products for moisturising as part of our M1 Select skincare line: 

Our M1 SELECT PURE GEL-CREAM is a light and oil-free moisturiser that contains hyaluronic acid to provide the skin with deep, long-lasting moisture without weighing you down. It is perfect for everyday use and especially great for Summer when you are wanting a refreshing and light moisturiser. Its nourishing formula with added peptides can help to reduce fine lines, maintain skin elasticity and stimulate collagen production. 

Also, the M1 SELECT PURE RICH CREAM is the cream that your dry, stressed skin is craving. Formulated with a thicker texture than our Gel Cream, the Rich Cream uses hyaluronic acid with different molecular weights to improve the moisture content of your skin. This is great for Winter when your skin is needing an extra pick me up. The innovative peptide complex in our formula also stimulates natural collagen production and can minimize fine lines. 

DID YOU KNOW? The biggest contribution to the deterioration of the skin is the sun! Exposure to the sun can cause fine lines, wrinkles and loss of hydration which can lead to acne. Wack on some sunscreen before heading out for the day, daily and after moisturising.
