| June 11, 2014


Words by Jessica Douglas

WHETHER you are male or female, bricky or fashionista, you should be taking care of your skin. And no, washing your face with hand soap will not suffice. The following five products will make a significant difference to any skincare routine and have you rubbing your silky smooth epidermis on unsuspecting passers-by.

1. Glam Glow SUPER-MUDTM Clearing Treatment



Literally a vacuum for your pores! This baby is jam-packed with amazing ingredients including eucalyptus leaf, Activated-X charcoal and a proprietary 6-acid AHA and BHA blend to unclog, hydrate and refine skin. You can actually see the product drawing out impurities as it dries. This product eradicates blackheads and leaves you with brighter, softer skin. Use a thin layer all over the face or use as a spot treatment on congested areas and breakouts.

Where to find it: Mecca Maxima

2. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil



Eat it, drink it, slather yourself head-to-toe in it, and emerge a radiant god of deliciousness. Coconut oil is an excellent moisturiser and absorbs easily into hair and skin, maximising its benefits. Its antibacterial and antifungal qualities also make it a fantastic weapon against psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. For faster growing, stronger, shinier hair, use as a mask, leaving on for as long as you can stand. To promote lash growth, load a cotton-tip and run it across your lash line every night before bed. For smooth lips, mix with raw sugar to create a scrub. And for the most heavenly skin you’ve ever felt, rub it all over.

Where to find it: Supermarkets and Health Food Stores

3. Frank Original Coffee Scrub



“Get naked. Get dirty. Get rough. Get clean.” Frank is the sexy all over scrub that does more than just exfoliate. Roasted and ground Robusta coffee beans target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne, while brown sugar, sea salt, and sweet almond oil smooth, moisturise and tone the skin. Use up to twice a week leaving on for 5-10 minutes to allow the goodness to sink in. Clearly, a love for the scent of coffee is essential.

4. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater



Spritz me, I’m dry! Throughout the day, internal and external environments can suck the hydration from your skin leaving it tight, dull and causing makeup to settle. Unlike traditional thermal and mineral water sprays which can actually have adverse effects, Mario Badescu’s facial spray contains herbal extracts and rosewater to moisturise and brighten. Carry a hydrating mist to refresh makeup and give life to parched skin wherever you are.

Where to find it: Kit Cosmetics


5. Bioderma Créaline H2O



Take it all off, baby. This super gentle, fragrance-free cleansing water removes makeup, dirt and oil from the face and eyes without aggravating even the most sensitive skin. Soak a cotton pad and swipe over the face anytime to refresh skin or as part of your nightly routine to pre-cleanse or tone.

Where to find it: Priceline

Now go! Scrub, mask, spritz and oil yourselves to your heart’s content, and show the world some skin.
