I cannot stress how great skin is of utmost importance and how a better skincare regime can be adopted to achieve fabulous skin can be proud of. Ageing is inevitable, but what we can do is to slow down its process by inculcating good skincare habits that will last a lifetime. First impressions do matter, and I’m sure all of you would like to find out how you can get skin that’s healthy and glowing so you can put your best face forward in the radiance you so very deserve to bask yourself in.
What caught my eye about Huxley was the fact that they pursue skin care solutions corresponding to modern skin woes affected by a hectic, stressful city life. Huxley’s adventure began in the barren Sahara Desert in search of unique and effective ingredients. On their voyage, they found the most effective skincare ingredient – Prickly Pear Seed Oil. This happens to also be the beauty secret of the Moroccan royal family, in the face of a harsh and inhospitable desert.
I had the courtesy to try out Huxley products for about 3 weeks now, and I can say that my skin has certainly improved. My skin has always been acne-prone, but I realised that my skin’s scarring has healed better during the course of time while using the Huxley range of skincare. I feel more empowered to take on the world knowing that my skin is well-nourished with a regime that’s fuss-free to implement.
Here are the steps I take using this selected range of Huxley products:
A lightweight oil-based cleanser that dissolves makeup and impurities, leaving skin clean and refreshed is all you truly need at times. For those who haven’t incorporated an oil-based cleansing routine – I’d say try it as it’s rather life-changing. Follow up with a foam cleanser to keep things squeaky clean. I love the feeling of having the peace of mind that my skin is squeaky clean so I can layer my skincare efficiently. If you prefer an exfoliant, the 2-in-1 face mask and scrub will refine your skin with natural defoliants, leaving your skin clear and smooth.

2. Masking – 3 Different Masks For Every Occasion
