2. TONE

Toning, or spritzing, is always the second step in the cleansing process and must never be omitted from your twice-daily routine. It restores the skin's protective acid mantle and removes the last cleansing residue to leave skin in the best condition to receive the benefits of further beauty treatments. The Natural EssenceTM Balancing Toner removes the last residue of the Purifying Cleansing Wash, leaving skin fresh and revitalised. It's the ideal choice for oily skin types as it contains plant actives with natural antiseptic and astringent qualities that work to control excess shine. Spritz onto cottonwool pads and wipe over cleansed skin, then spritz again over the face and inhale its uplifting, energising fragrance.

2. EXFOLIATE

An essential part of any good beauty routine, exfoliation frees skin of dull surface debris to reveal a layer of fresh new cells and restore radiance to the complexion. The Natural EssenceTM Clarifying Exfoliant is a soft, cream scrub specially formulated to help clear problem skin. Walnut kernels and Papaya and Pineapple fruit acids act as natural exfoliants, while Grapeseed, Almond and Aloe oils protect, hydrate and heal the skin. Lightly massage it into face and neck using circular movements, then rinse skin well in lukewarm water to remove all product residue. Follow with a spritz of Balancing Toner to refresh skin.

4. MASSAGE

A facial massage boosts circulation, releases tension, restores suppleness and softens signs of ageing. The Natural EssenceTM Skin Life Oil is the perfect massage medium for those with oily or combination skin as its 100% natural plant oils purify, repair, restore and rebalance skin. Massage a few drops into cleansed face, neck and décolletage with fingertips, moving from the centre of the face to the temples and ears to stimulate lymph drainage. Facial oils penetrate skin more easily than most creams do, so offer concentrated benefits, plus massage activates the body's natural healing system.

1. CLEANSE

Cleansing twice a day is the first step to beautiful, healthy skin. In the morning, it clears away stale skin acids and oil from the night before, eliminating impurities and allowing skin to breathe. In the evening, it removes pollution, make-up and excess oils and leaves skin refreshed and bacteria free. The Natural EssenceTM Purifying Cleansing Wash is the perfect natural foaming gelwash for oily and combination skin types. It contains active plant oils to treat shine, repair the skin and act as an astringent on dilated pores. Foam it up with wet fingertips and massage over face and neck using upward circular movements. Rinse it off thoroughly with a face cloth or facial sponges soaked in warm water.

5. PURIFY

A mask is the gentlest and most natural way to treat imperfections and clear breakouts. The Natural EssenceTM Rescue Clay Mask deep cleans skin, absorbing excess oil and impurities to leave it comforted and calm. It visibly improves and clears skin, purifies painful spots and restores hydration. Apply a thick layer to face and neck and leave to act for 10-15 minutes. Remove any residue with a warm, wet facecloth, then rinse skin well. Refresh skin with Balancing Toner.

6. MOISTURISE

Moisture is the foundation of beautiful skin and is vital to its long-term wellbeing. The final step in any facial, a good moisturiser will lock in hydration and provide a protective barrier against environmental damage. The Natural EssenceTM Matifying Day Cream SPF 30 provides skin with essential nourishment, while working to keep it decongested and clear. Massage it into skin using your fingertips and working in upward circular movements.
