Skincare Routine Steps

Find The Best Skincare Routine Steps For You

Step 1: Cleanse

Every skincare routine should start with cleansing to remove dirt, excess oil and impurities from your pores. Adding a good cleanser to your skincare routine steps will give your complexion a fresh, healthy glow.




At Sanctuary Spa, you can find the best cleanser for every skin type:


Dry skin

Moisture Burst Facial Wash: Packed with nourishing Jojoba beads and Almond Oil, this cleanser rinses away dirt, impurities and makeup while hydrating the skin. Your face will be left beautifully cleansed and with a fresh, dewy glow.


Oily and combination skin

Warming Charcoal Detox Wash: Detoxifying Charcoal and calming Chamomile Oil draw out impurities from your pores. Together they unclog and remove excess oil for a shine-free appearance.


Normal skin

Melt Away Cleansing Oil: This lightweight cleansing oil instantly dissolves dirt and melts away makeup. Your skin will be left soft and hydrated with no greasy residue.


Sensitive skin

Foaming Micellar Cleansing Water: Makeup-dissolving Micelles, soothing Rose Water and nourishing Argan Oil gently lift makeup and impurities, while hydrating and calming irritation.

Step 2: Tone

You’re not alone if toning isn’t one of your skincare routine steps yet, but don’t underestimate its advantages. It can rebalance skin, exfoliate pores and brighten skin tone.


Therapist’s Tip: For a naturally brighter and more radiant complexion, use our Daily Glow Radiance Tonic. Glycolic Acid, brightening Vitamin B3 and soothing Liquorice work together to exfoliate pores, accelerate cell renewal and even skin tone. Sweep over the face using a cotton pad after cleansing.



Step 3: Moisturise

Moisturising is an essential step in your daily skincare routine. It helps to maintain healthy skin cells and balances natural oil production. By hydrating and plumping skin, it can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines.





The first step of a good moisturising routine should be a skin-perfecting serum. Intensive and ultra-lightweight, it penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to hydrate and nourish.


Our Hyaluronic Wonder Oil Serum works wonders for all skin types. A unique blend of Moringa, Jojoba and Pomegranate gives skin an instant hydration boost, while Red Rice Bio-Ferment and plumping Hyaluronic Acid rejuvenate and firm.


Eye cream

Did you know that the skin under your eyes is 20 times thinner than on the rest of your face? It consequently requires gentle, targeted treatments. Consider adding an eye serum as one of your skincare routine steps to repair and renew the under-eye area.


Our Power Peptide Awakening Eye Serum combines hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, stimulating Caffeine and anti-ageing Persian Silk Tree Extracts to rejuvenate tired-looking eyes. It’s designed to reduce the appearance of both wrinkles and dark circles.


Moisturiser and SPF

Between pollution, harsh weather conditions and indoor heating, your skin suffers a lot of stress. Applying moisturiser and SPF creates a protective layer on the skin’s surface.


Our Protect and Illuminate SPF15 Moisture Lotion is formulated with Shea Butter, radiance-boosting Pink Pomelo and Vitamin E to boost your skin’s natural defences and hydrate deeply. It evens out skin tone, refines texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines.


Night cream

Did you know that the skin repairs itself as you sleep? To give it a helping hand, switch your daytime serum and moisturiser combo for a more indulgent cream in the evening.


Our Supercharged Hyaluronic Face and Neck Crème boasts a decadent formula infused with Hyaluronic Acid and nourishing Shea Butter. It intensely restores the skin’s defences and moisture levels while you sleep.


Extra Weekly Skincare Routine Steps

Taking a little extra time once or twice a week to complete a more vigorous skincare routine can remedy an array of skincare woes. Whenever you treat yourself to a pamper night, exfoliate after cleansing and use a face mask before moisturising.


Exfoliate for a dose of luminosity

Whilst exfoliation isn’t necessary on a daily basis, doing it once a week helps to refresh and renew the skin. Exfoliating can soften dry skin, boost circulation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Therapist’s Tip: For super smooth skin use our Complexion Perfecting Radiance Exfoliator once or twice a week. While a blend of ultra-fine Apricot Granules and Grape Seed buffs away dead skin cells, a trio of Pumpkin, Pineapple and Papaya Extracts brightens the skin beneath.



Apply a nourishing face mask

Sometimes, your skin needs an extra helping hand to look its best. So, for an extra weekly boost, consider using a face mask.




Dry skin

Our Glacial Splash Hydrating Face Mask infuses skin with brightening Vitamin B3 and replenishing Alpine Minerals to hydrate and plump.


Oily skin

Our 5 Minute Thermal Charcoal Detox Mask combines purifying Charcoal, mattifying Kaolin Clay and calming Myrrh Oil to draw out impurities, and pollutants, while eliminating excess oils from your pores.


Dull, lacklustre skin

Formulated with radiance-boosting Kakadu Plum and brightening Vitamin C, our 1 Minute Daily Glow Mask gives instant luminosity and improved texture in just one minute.


Ageing skin

Our Beauty Sleep Recovery Face Mask Overnight is filled with youth-boosting Tetrapeptide, calming Orange Flower Oil and relaxing Lavendar restore and revitalise skin as you sleep.


There is a bewildering array of skincare products out there, but your skincare routine steps don’t have to be complicated. Just follow three simple rules: cleanse, tone and moisturise. How you personalise your regimen from there is up to you. Remember, you can tailor your ritual to find the best skincare routine products for you using the Build Your Routine function on our website.
