Our newest addition to the premium Secret Is Out range, the Neck and D�collet� Firming Cream will keep your neck and chest area protected and looking fresh. The Lift and Repair Night Cream cares for your skin while you sleep.
Mostly c's - you have oily skin
Oily skin is more prone to breakouts and so the Anti Blemish range is an ideal companion for your skin. The Purifying Foaming Cleanser gently treats and exfoliates to help eliminate the causes of skin blemishes, and for the ultimate in oil control try applying the Sebum Control Cleanser on a soaked cotton pad to oily areas. Protect your skin from daily meltdown with the Oil Control Day Cream and if a pesky spot appears, treat it regularly with the award-winning Spot Gel. The Anti Blemish Starter Kit contains trial sizes of all our products and is an ideal introduction to Dr Lowe's range!
Mostly d's - you have combination skin
Combination skin is dry in some areas and oily in others, so be sure to cleanse gently. Try the Hydrating Foaming Cleanser when your skin feels dry, and the Sebum Control Cleanser for an oily T-zone. Don't forget to moisturise daily to balance skin, with the Super Charged SPF15 Day Cream or Oil Control Day Cream. To combat dullness, the Brightening Radiance Cream replenishes and revitalises to protect and improve tone and smooth your skin with the Secret Is Out Lifting Super Serum.
DR LOWE'S ADVICE:
you will need to change your type of cleanser and face cream with the seasons. The dryness and oiliness you experience will vary throughout the year- it is usually drier in the winter due to winds and central heating, but needs a higher SPF in sunny, warm weather.
