Maths with Murad!

Murad is one of the leading brands in the Luxury Skincare industry. With an emphasis on healthy skin at the core of the brand, Murad skincare products contain the best and most active ingredients which help to optimise skin health, control the ageing process and give your skin luminosity.

One of the biggest tips Murad advocates are the steps to the ultimate skin health. By following a prescribed facial regimen, skin becomes cleaner, healthier and more radiant. Understanding this facial regimen, and adopting it as your morning and evening routine, is as important as the products themselves. By learning how to utilise your products to the best of their abilities, and using massaging techniques to work them into the skin, you will notice a clear difference in the look and health of your skin. Professional facials for example work so well because beauticians really work the facial muscles, which helps to stimulate the flow of oxygen and encourage the lymphatic system to drain toxins present in the blood.

Murad has devised a simple treatment plan that you can use in the morning and evening to make the most out of your products and reveal clear, glowing skin!

Cleanse | Tone

It is important to wash your face twice daily to help remove make-up, dirt, debris and dead skin cells which have accumulated on the skin. While many people believe that waking up in the morning, having washed their face the night before, means that their skin is squeaky clean, dead skin cells have actually accumulated through the night and need to be cleansed away before applying make-up.

We love the Murad Renewing Cleansing Oil which helps to gently lift dirt and impurities. Containing a unique blend of jojoba oils and liquorice which work to nourish the skin, the oil is also blended with almond oil which is enriched with vitamin E and helps to keep skin soft and supple.

Wash your face with warm water to open the pores and allow the cleanser to penetrate deeper than the surface of the skin. Massage the cleanser into the skin in light, upward strokes to work the product into the skin. This helps to increase the flow of oxygen in the skin and encourage the flush of toxins out of the bloodstream which will help give you clearer skin. Once cleansed, finish with a splash of cold water to close the pores and prepare the skin for the next step.

Dr. Murad recommends using a toner no more than twice a day after cleansing, which helps to restore the skin’s natural PH levels and prepare it for the next step in the regimen. The Radiant Toning Lotion helps to remove leftover traces of dirt and impurities, while breaking down pigmentation and dark spots on the skin by using maximum-strength brighteners to reveal even skin tone.

Target | Repair

Murad assert that this is the most important part of any facial care regime. Targeted treatments help to repair the skin, optimise its health, add moisture and hydration, whilst protecting it from further damage throughout the day. Targeted treatments such as exfoliators, and repairing serums help to polish the skin and reveal its natural luminosity.

We have fallen in love with the Skin Smoothing Polish, which helps to unblock pores and reveal a healthy-looking complexion. With active ingredients such as witch hazel and pomegranate seed oil which help soothe the skin and brighten dullness, the skin is left feeling refreshed and looking refined.

This step in the regime also helps to form a protective barrier over the skin, which locks in moisture and protects the skin from dryness and damage caused by environmental factors, such as hot and cold weather, and make-up which sits on the surface.

Hydrate | Protect

Applying a moisturiser helps to replenish and restore your skin, leaving it glowing with luminosity and vitality. By working the moisturiser into the skin using light upward strokes, it absorbs into the dermis rather than sitting on the surface, which will offer long-term moisture and hydration.

Murad recommends using an SPF either in your moisturiser or as an added extra, to help protect your skin from sun damage caused by harsh UV rays. Even when it doesn’t seem sunny outside, this step is extremely important as UV rays can penetrate through clouds, and in winter, can reflect off light surfaces such as ice and snow, so make sure you use an SPF every day to help protect your skin from damage and premature ageing.

The Hydrate Protect Pore Reform Balancing Moisturiser has an SPF 15 so makes the morning routine super easy in the morning as it combines hydration and SPF in one! Containing a unique blend of lactic acid and Japanese Alder Flower Extract which help to decongest skin and prevent blackhead formation, this moisturiser is a staple in any girl’s beauty bag!

By following these simple steps, your skin will be glowing with health in no time at all!

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
