If you strive to have healthy skin, take your time and patience to commit the following simple tips to improve your skin condition and make your complexion cleaner and clearer. The first step to healthy beautiful skin is to be healthy and happy from within.

  • Stress is one of the biggest contributors to premature ageing and damaged skin. Our demanding lifestyles put additional pressure on our internal body clock and we struggle to cope with the demands of each day. In addition, the increasing amount of pollutants and chemicals contained in the various products we use to put in and on our bodies add to the stress we subject ourselves to. Being realistic about our expectations of achievements within a day will ease the pressure, make us more relaxed and happy and help you sleep much better. This in turn will relax our vascular system providing better oxygenation to the skin. Avoid using cosmetics with chemicals which add additional pressure to the body. LMB's Natural Active Skincare Programme is free from chemical preservatives and cream thickeners - complete, simple natural solution to meet all your needs to restore and maintain healthy, radiant skin.
  • Less is more! Our skin is naturally beautifully balanced, using too many cosmetics and procedures can destroy this natural balance. Keep your skincare routine as simple as possible, avoid using too many products especially powders and foundations that block your pores making it difficult for your skin to breath normally. LMB's Active Skincare programme offers you all you need to support this natural balance in a simple and efficient way.
  • Improve skin condition by making wise food choices and follow a balanced diet. The nutrients and vitamins found in fruits and vegetables will make your skin look better. Avoid eating processed food which are usually high in chemicals, fats, sugars and salt. LMB's Smooth Skin Vitamin Complex (launching soon) will offer the ultimate support system from within, providing the body only with the most vital supplements required to retain ultimate health.
  • Drink plenty of water to keep skin cells and tissues clear and replenished. Water helps your body release toxins and stays hydrated. Remember drinking caffeinated beverages can have a dehydrating effect so you will need to drink extra water when you have caffeine.
  • Get enough sleep. Sleeping allows skin cells to regenerate and helps prevent dreaded bags and dark circles beneath the eyes. Keep stimulants like caffeine to a minimum before bed to get good quality sleep. LMB's Super Hydrate 8-hour Serum offers the perfect deep support - boosting and assisting in the skin's self regeneration system, while LMB Eye Contour Serum contains plant stem cells which improve circulation and drainage to eliminate dark circles and puffiness of the eye contour area. Fresh extracts of Bulgarian rosehip oil can effectively boost skin regeneration, reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate mature skin.
  • Exercise frequently and regularly. When you exercise, the blood flow gives your skin a healthy, radiant glow. The benefit of working out will reflect through your skin.
  • It is important to remove make up effectively and cleanse your skin daily. Any make up traces will block and clog your pores and damage your skin. Avoid soaps on your face and apply toner or astringent to tighten up pores and lock in moisture after cleansing. LMB Primer Hydrating Tonic is a complex of natural antioxidants, with strong refreshing and moisturising properties, is perfect as a base and is suitable for all types of skin. It contains pure Bulgarian rosewater providing gentle cleansing with its excellent antibacterial capabilities.
  • Use an exfoliator to remove dull, dead skin cells to keep your skin polished and radiant. It leaves the skin feeling supple and smooth, and the skin care products you apply afterwards will be more effective. Be mindful, too frequent use and over-exfoliating can make skin sensitive, particularly delicate skin.
  • Wear sunscreen daily to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. You could also try moisturiser or make up with SPF built in.
  • No matter what type of skin you have, a good moisturiser is an essential part of your skin care routine. When your skin looses moisture it creates excess oil to compensate. Apply LMB's Day Revitalising Serum / Super Hyrdate 8-hour Serum to restore hydration, preserve moisture and soften the skin - best absorbed when your skin is still moist.
  • Don't forget to clean and replace your face cleaning sponge, brush or make up brush regularly. Dirty or worn-out tools can intrduce bacteria on your face and cause acne.

Acne is common during puberty when hormones go into overdrive, causing the skin to overproduce sebum. Acne can be devastating. If you have acne prone skin, here are some tips to prevent breakouts:

  • A pimple starts when the pores in the skin become clogged with sebum. Throughout the day our skin collects dirt, oil and other impurities. Always keep your face clean and wash twice daily with mild cleansers. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Do not scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can irritate the skin. Keep your skin moisturised and hydrated after each wash. If the skin is too dry, it will produce excess sebum to compensate.
  • Do not pick at any blemishes. It can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. To keep bacteria at bay, you should avoid touching your skin with your fingers, and you should wash your hands before applying any treatments or make up to your face.
  • If you wear glasses or sunglasses, clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose. If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes because this may cause irritation. Allow your skin to breathe. Change towels and linens frequently.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. A tan may worsen your acne. It can also cause damage to your skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.
  • Tea tree oil is a natural powerful disinfectant that can help breakdown the bacteria that causes acne and speed up the healing process without removing the skin's natural moisture. Try LMB's Anti-acne Serum containing tea tree oil and propolis for problematic skin, prone to acne. It can also prevent the formation of blackheads and pimples. Green tea and aloe vera also help fighting inflammation while salicylic acid penetrates inside the pores to exfoliate your skin.
