Power up your skin this season! All of the products at Skin Pharmacy are created by skincare experts at world-renowned brands such as Medik8, SkinCeuticals, NeoStrata, Alumier MD, and more, meaning each product can work in harmony with a skin concern, effectively and with aplomb.
Our recommendations for spring are: Matticlear by Alumier MD, which reduces shine and refines skin texture, resulting in a smooth, matte finish while also absorbing excess sebum to create an immediate mattifying effect. Medik8’s Press and Clear is designed to fend off blemishes, blackheads and pore-clogging foes, and has been expertly formulated to ward off imperfections and promote visibly clearer, smoother skin in no time at all!
Phyto A+ Skin Brightening Treatment, from SkinCeuticals, visibly reduces excess oil and redness, while smoothing skin and minimizing the appearance of pores for enhanced clarity and brightness.
Cloud skin is a skin trend that emerged amongst the glossy skin boom. This trend is all about a soft-focus, blurred complexion that emits a soft glow, showing the skin is well hydrated but also exhibits a dreamy matte finish. Achieving cloud skin consists of strategic skincare and makeup for the perfect result.
Starting with skincare, the skin needs to be sufficiently hydrated to get that natural radiance, so use Obagi Medical’s Hydrate Facial Moisturiser, which effectively helps the skin hold onto its natural moisture reserves while continuously releasing active compounds which support skin conditioning.
At the end of your routine, layer on ZO Skin Health’s Smart Tone Broad Spectrum SPF 50 - a non-greasy, quick drying sunscreen with a sheer matte finish offering broad-spectrum protection against UVA, UVB rays, which also shields skin from ageing effects of high-energy visible (HEV) light.
If you’re a non-makeup wearer feel free to stop here, but if you’re wearing a base, mattify away with iS Clinical’s PerfecTint Powder SPF40 which provides silky-smooth broad-spectrum coverage to help protect skin against the visible signs of photoaging while minimising the appearance of pores and absorbing surface oil to create a flawless finish.
Sun and Skin
The sun care category is one that is ever evolving, and as such, we’re always intrigued by it. Sun care products are the solution to easily reapplying SPF throughout the day, as well as applying sunscreen on-the-go without having to get your hands dirty. There are a multitude of skincare benefits, finishes, and textures to choose from according to your skin type and preferences.
Need a hit of moisture? Go for Obagi Medical’s Obagi 360 HydraFactor SPF 30 to retain long-lasting moisture and plumping of the skin to ensure the complexion remains smooth and supple during a day in the sun and is suitable for all skin types.
If you’re seeking weightless, cast-free UV protection with a cooling sensation upon application, the Heliocare 360° Invisible Spray absorbs quickly with an invisible, non-oily finish and is water resistant, meaning it’s effective on wet skin.
As the weather gets hotter and more humid, many skincare users opt for a lightweight base to ramp up skin radiance, and to add an additional layer of hydration.
iS Clinical’s Cream Cleanser removes impurities and makeup from skin’s surface, and deeply cleanses pores without leaving skin feeling stripped, dry and tight. The lightweight and hydrating formula also fortifies the natural barrier function of the skin.
ALLSKIN’s MED R Essential Renewal Serum is a silky, lightweight serum that glides onto the skin and gently promotes cellular renewal to create a smoother, brighter and clearer complexion.
Skinbetter Science’s Refresh Hydration Boosting Cream is a dual-action, lightweight moisturiser that delivers immediate and long-lasting hydration for a healthy skin barrier. It is suitable for all skin types and can be added to any skincare regime for light moisturisation.
