Do you find yourself exposed to a lot of pollution suspended in the city air that it makes your skin breakout? Or do you pile on loads of makeup and want to ensure that your skin is thoroughly cleansed by end of the day? Whether it’s by using the right skincare products, developing the right eating habits, or choosing the right treatments for skin, read on to find out what NOVU recommends to achieving squeaky clean skin!
1. hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
We can’t stress enough about this! Up to 60% of the human adult body is made of water; this explains the importance of drinking water and flushing toxins out of our body system to keep ourselves healthy from inside out. Toxins tend to build up when our body produces too much of it and drinking plain water without any added sugar or flavour can work well to detoxify excess waste that may get stored in unwanted areas of the body.
2.Get rid of oil and gunk with Hydrocleanse
Hydrocleanse is a non-invasive water resurfacing treatment offered at NOVU clinics that combines vortex technology and hydrogenised water to gently exfoliate the top layers of skin, removing dead skin cells and impurities. Infused with hydrogen ions dispersed during the treatment, this treatment effectively banishes free radicals that cause a myriad of skin problems, such as wrinkles and fine lines, without harmful side effects. This treatment also serves as a prep step to any NOVU treatments. Book your first trial at $48 now.
3. Exfoliate with a facial brush
Invest in an ultra-gentle exfoliation face brush to enhance your daily cleansing routine. Achieve smooth clean skin daily when you use a facial brush with your cleanser as exfoliation removes dulling surface debris and impurities.
