Step-by-step superfood skincare routine
Step number one is to exfoliate! There are many benefits to using an exfoliator in your routine.
For example, it can help dry or dull skin by promoting blood circulation, helping to remove dead skin cells and brightening your skin's appearance.
Our Pip & Pod Dragonfruit and Blackberry face scrubs gently exfoliate by using waste kiwi seeds, leaving you with perfectly polished, healthy-looking skin.
Packed with complexion-boosting vitamin C to help restore a youthful, smooth appearance, while nourishing and protecting the skin.
How to use
Before you start your skincare regime, massage a pea-sized amount into damp skin in light circular motions.
Then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Next up in the routine is cleansing. Designed to wash away dead skin cells and remove make up or impurities, use this cleanser at the start and end of the day.
Our Pip & Pod Avocado and Cactus Cleansing Balm is a nourishing waterless oil-to-milk cleanser packed full of nourishing ingredients, vitamins and minerals to help promote collagen production while soothing and hydrating skin, especially for dry skin.
Perfect for removing make up without the need for cotton wool or face wipes, this is a great sustainable swap in your regime.
Our Pip & Pod Peach Foaming Cleanser is another option if you want to reduce the amount of cotton wool or face wipes you use.
Energising yet gentle, this foam cleanser contains a healthy burst of peach extract which is rich in vitamin C. Melt away any makeup and impurities to reveal a healthy fresh glow.
How to use the cleansing balm
Warm a pea-sized amount between palms and then massage over face and neck with light circular massage movements.
Moisten fingertips and continue to massage.
Remove with a warm, damp cleansing cloth.
How to use the foaming cleanser
Pump a small amount of lather onto your palm and massage on to your face and neck.
Use eye products
Once you’ve exfoliated and cleansed, it’s time to apply your eye products – always before any other serums or moisturisers, as it works best when applied directly to clean skin.
Our Pip & Pod Eye cream is enriched with kakadu plum, known to be the highest natural source of vitamin C in the world!
This cream is packed with antioxidants to hydrate, smooth and firm skin, while also helping to revive tired eyes
How to use
Apply to clean, dry skin around eyes.
Pat gently from brow bone to cheek bone, including upper eye lid and crow's feet areas.
Next, follow up with a facial serum to boost your regime and target your skin concerns.
Although it’s worth noting that serums are highly concentrated, so always apply to cleansed skin to ensure they can absorb into the skin as much as possible.
If you're looking for firmer, more youthful looking skin choose our Watermelon Glow Drops - Watermelon extract helps brighten skin look younger, look firmer and hydrated, for an instant, healthy-looking glow.
For skin that’s tired and dull, or blemish-prone, our Melon & Pineapple serum is bursting with complexion-boosting vitamin C and natural AHA to brighten, smooth and hydrate skin while also reducing fading the appearance of blemishes.
How to use
Drop a few drops onto well cleansed skin and massage with your fingertips until well absorbed.
Once your serum is applied and has had the chance to sink into your skin, use a moisturiser to help lock in the nutrients, support your skin barrier and hydrate your skin.
Our Pip & Pod moisturiser is 100% vegan and contains cucumber, mint and kale extracts.
This means it’s packed full of antioxidants and superfood extracts naturally rich in vitamin C and E, known to work together to nourish and protect skin
How to use
Massage an almond sized amount to the face morning & night.
Now we’ve covered the basics, it’s time to delve into the extras if you feel like your skin need a little extra TLC or if you’re heading out into the sun and want to fully prep your skin.
Best applied before moisturising, facial mists can be used to hydrate and lock-in skin nutrients, plus they’re a great way to refresh skin.
But it can also be used throughout the day or on the go if you feel it’s necessary.
Our refreshing blueberry mist is boosted with hydrating hyaluronic acid and blueberry extract, a natural source of antioxidants, leaving skin feeling fresh and glowing.
How to use
Hold the bottle 15-20cm away from the face and spray until lightly covered.
Do not rinse.
Is your skin in need of a little more TLC? Do you feel like you want to relax and unwind? Face masks could be the answer!
Allowing ingredients to penetrate better into your skin in a short amount of time, face masks are perfect for providing a further boost of superfood skincare ingredients to your skin.
Just make sure to use them after cleansing and before using any serum or moisturiser.
Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, our Berry Smoothie mask is a vegan, hydrating gel mask with light exfoliation from waste raspberry seeds is expertly formulated to provide maximum nourishment and hydration to skin.
Cherry and raspberry seed oils work together to boost skin with vitamin A and C, leaving smooth, clear and calm skin.
Our Kiwi Seed Polishing mask is also gel-based and vegan-friendly, but it just uses waste kiwi seeds instead! The key ingredients in this mask though are vitamin C packed kiwi oil and natural jojoba extract to help smoothen and brighten your skin.
How to use
Smooth the face mask all over your well cleansed skin in an even layer.
Leave it to work for 5-10 minutes.
Rinse it off with warm water in circular motions to gently exfoliate your skin.
We all understand the importance of using SPF to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays, but we thought it was still worth a mention in our routine.
Use sunscreen after moisturising in the morning, and before makeup if you wear it.
Not got a trusty SPF yet? Our H&B SPF 30 100% mineral sunscreen provides immediate UVA & UVB protection once rubbed into the skin.
Formulated with natural filters, antioxidants and oils, it leaves the skin feeling nourished as well as protected throughout the day.
How to use
Apply generously on skin before sun exposure and repeat the application after swimming and several times throughout the day.
For an extra burst of indulgence, apply some nourishing facial oil after your moisturiser either in the morning or at night.
Not sure which one to use?
The Vitaskin Vitamin C Intense Illuminating Oil could be the perfect one for you.
This lightweight oil is full of rejuvenating actives that combine to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains high levels of Vitamin C and Omega Oils from a natural blend of Kiwi Seed, Sea Buckthorn and Sweet Orange oils to enhance the natural radiance of your skin.
How to use
Massage into cleansed skin.
And lastly, we have toner. Used to help brighten, refresh and soften your skin, toner provides the perfect glow-up for dull, dry and oily skin!
Use to help remove makeup and other skin impurities, or as your post-cleansing balancer.
We’d recommend the Q+A Glycolic Acid Daily toner if you’re not sure where to start.
Glycolic Acid (AHA – Alpha Hydroxy Acid) helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, blemishes, and signs of ageing through gentle chemical exfoliation.
Hyaluronic Acid draws plenty of moisture into your skin cells to support long-term hydration.
Sugar beet-derived Betaine compliments these ingredients by helping to balance moisture levels and promoting that instant glow that keeps you looking and feeling fresh.
How to use
Apply a few drops to a cotton pad and gently apply to your skin to help remove makeup and skin impurities.
