Your skin is the largest organ in your body. As your protective layer, it’s subject to all kinds of harsh elements. By creating a daily routine that prevents damage, you’ll keep your skin resilient, healthy, and looking young. Finding a skin care routine that works for you can seem like a never-ending beauty quest.
“Investing early in the health of your skin, with regular skin care, will not only better protect it from the harsh effects of winter, but also keep you looking and feeling your best throughout the year,” says Steven Nwe, DO, a dermatologist with Northwestern Medicine. “The key to skin resiliency is knowing your skin and treating it well.”
We’ve asked both Lucy our Spa Manager and Jo our Spa Training Manager to give us an insight into their daily skin routines, so we can get an idea of the best way to look after our skin.

wash my face with an Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial followed by Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads.
I then apply Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Eye Cream followed by Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Serum
