We often talk about skin conditions and treatment options for damaged skin, barrier complaints and anti-aging but it’s not often we discuss the absolute basics. 

This is the Tej & Co ultimate 4 step summer skincare routine. It’s the routine we recommend on a daily basis to nourish your skin and to enhance your regular skincare routines.

Cleansing

Cleansing is the first part of the process and is one of the most important steps for cleaning and preparing your skin.  In the evening we recommend you double cleanse to gently lift away dirt, grease, grime and pollution, and loosen any makeup. 

Using a small 5p-10p sized blob massage lightly onto the skin and rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat the process again but this time massage a little more firmly before gently wiping the face clean using a damp face mitt. 

If any makeup remains just apply a small amount of cleanser to a damp mitt and gently wipe over the area. There is no need for a separate makeup remover as the Dermaviduals cleanser will remove all makeup. 

In the morning we recommend a single cleanse before moving on to the next step in the routine.

We sell a range of bespoke cleansers which we tailor to your skin type. We also sell a gentle cleansing milk.

Serum

Next you should apply your serum. Serums are light in texture and provide essential vitamins and nutrients to the skin.

We are able to create bespoke prescriptive serums for individual skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and eczema, and we recommend you apply a serum in the morning and evening for the best results.

A serum adds the treatment to the skin after it is cleansed and before it is sealed in with a moisturiser. It is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine.

Moisturiser

To keep skin soft and supple and protected we recommend a moisturiser for all skin types and for all ages. Everybody benefits from a good moisturiser! 

The Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) base cream range is chemically and physically similar to the membrane structure of the skin’s natural barrier with gentle and effective ingredients.  It mimics the structure of the skin while hydrating and protecting various skin types.

Our Gold standard treatment is our prescriptive moisturiser which is blended specifically for your individual skin type or skin problem and offers the best results for your skin.

Sunscreen

We always recommend a separate sunscreen for maximum protection in the sun. A moisturiser is designed to be absorbed by the skin so its chemical make-up means is won’t sit on the outer layer of the skin. A sunscreen is designed to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays and will remain sitting on the surface of the skin until it is washed off in the sea or swimming pool, or in the heat of the day.

A good sunscreen protects the skin’s natural barrier and offer a sun protection filter against UVA and UVB radiation. 

The Dermaviduals sunscreen is ideal for use on reactive skins such as those with psoriasis and eczema or any skin with a barrier impairment. The fast penetrating matt cream provides protection from UVA and UVB rays which helps prevent premature aging to the skin.
