Talk to anybody in the skincare industry and they will tell you about the importance of looking after your skin while you’re still young. However, unless you have a time-machine there’s not much point agonizing over the skin habits of your younger self. The worst thing you can do is put it in the “too hard” or rather “too late” basket. It’s never too late to begin a skincare routine – but the key is to stick to it! You can start now and here’s why it’s not too late!
When you begin a skincare regime for the first time you will see lots of positive results: No matter the age of your skin it will become more balanced, and you will be able to protect it from further damage.
While you might have been thinking about other things, the skincare industry has been growing and growing with hundreds of products on the market that all do different things – and you might find it overwhelming. WE want to make this easier! Here are three easy steps to a flawless skincare system that will give you results and make you wonder why it took you so long to start!
First, find out your skin type and the goals you have for your skin
The best place to start is work out your skin type. You’ve been living with your skin for years and yet you still might not have a strong idea about how your skin compares to others. Our skincare consultation takes less than two minutes and considers all the things that matter when it comes to your skin (including your lifestyle!)
At The Herb Farm we have four different skin care ranges that are built around the needs of your specific type of skin: Oily & Combination, Normal (including Sensitive), Dry and Lasting Beauty. These ranges have exactly what you need to properly care for your skin – and the four-step system means absolutely no guesswork. So, once you’ve found out your skin type, most of the work has already been done!
However, that doesn’t mean there can’t sometimes be trouble-shooting problems, which is why we created our Right Product Guarantee. In a nutshell, it means that if any skincare product from the skincare ranges above doesn’t work for your skin, we will swap it with something that does. How stress free is that?

Second, make your skincare regime a habit
Turn your skincare routine into a luxurious morning ritual and a quiet moment just for you – it’s a great way to show self-care. With your face being the first thing that people see it makes sense that you should put pride in it and give your skin the care it needs. This might also be the time when you notice your skin’s needs have changed – don’t be confused if your skin begins to change once you’ve been implementing a skincare routine for a while. It’s likely to become more balanced and the skin you initially thought was dry might become a lot more hydrated etc. Retake our skincare consultation after a month to check!
Third, bonus step
Once you’ve got the knack of a skincare routine down, you’ll notice you’re more attuned to your skin’s needs. Think about whether there are other products you would like to use such as a skin protectant, an eye cream or serum – just don’t overwhelm yourself in the beginning by purchasing an 8-step skincare system!
