Do you know how to care for your skin type?
When it comes to our skin, we need to use the best and most delicate products available.
Our skin is one of the most important organs of the body, and is also the largest. The skin on our face is extremely delicate, especially around our eyes, which is around 30% thinner than the rest of our face.
Therefore, it is vital to take good care of our skin, to help prevent breakouts and premature ageing.
