So you’ve spent ages creating your spooky Halloween look and it’s now time to remove it. Read our ultimate guide for adults and kids to ensure you look after your skin as you ‘de-ghoul’, including an exclusive video from Pro Makeup Artist Anna Lingis and our top tips if you have a reaction.
Looking to simplify your routine? Whilst our serums and toners can help to target specific concerns, they’re not always essential. Here are the three most important steps to stick to...
It’s essential to cleanse your face every day, morning and night. Cleansing helps to remove daily impurities as well as makeup and SPF, and will help to prevent your skin from becoming congested, which can lead to breakouts and blackheads. Cleanse once in the morning and double cleanse in the evening if you are wearing makeup or SPF.
Cream cleansers are a great option if you are looking for one cleanser that does it all as they are oil-based – successfully breaking down makeup and SPF, whilst remaining light and easy to wash off.
Pro-tip: For the ultimate cleansing experience, use a warm, damp flannel to remove your cleanser.

Often formulated with hydration-boosting actives, as well as nourishing and barrier-supporting ingredients, moisturisers are vital for your skin health, locking in hydration and helping to keep your skin healthy and balanced. Nourishing yet weightless, whipped textures are a good option for use all year round and can typically be used by all skin types.
Skin Rocks The Moisturiser
If you are very dry and/or wish to use a richer moisturiser during the colder months, opt for a thicker, more occlusive* cream. On the oilier side of the spectrum? Try a lightweight gel-cream.
If you are oily and want to avoid layering your SPF and moisturiser, you can choose a moisturising SPF and use this in place of 2 separate products, reserving your moisturiser for the evenings. Just remember to ensure you are still using the correct amount of SPF.
