  • Tends to be genetic
  • Small to invisible pore
  • Fine lines even when you are younger
  • Lacks elasticity

  • Regular exfoliation to to remove dead skin cells to improve appearance and help moisturiser to absorb and stimulate cell production as this skin tends to be sluggish in regenerating. Use a gentle but effective exfoliator such as Bergamot & Cypress Face & Body Scrub.


  • Is about the water content in your skin.
  • Any skin type can be dehydrated including oily skin.
  • May only be in certain areas such as cheeks or forehead.
