It can be a little daunting taking your first look at a professional skincare range. With so many products to choose from, each offering different benefits – picking what’s right for you can be overwhelming and a little bit confusing.
First of all you need to understand that there isn’t a one size fits all solution. It’s about building your own personal routine that will work towards the goals you want, and fits in with your lifestyle and budget.
It’s going to take a little bit of effort and time, first of all in selecting the right products and then in implementing a routine that you can follow regularly. But don’t worry, we’re here to help and if you don’t find the answers below, then you can always Email us with your concerns and we’ll help match you up to the right products for your needs.
Choosing your products
Every NCN product serves a purpose and each delivers a specific range of benefits – all of them though are based on cell renewal with an anti-ageing focus – formulated to help firm the skin, decrease lines and wrinkles, and give your skin a healthy and youthful glow.
Now this is where it might take a bit of time – unless you’re a bit of a skincare geek, it’s likely that you won’t have heard of a lot of the wonderful ingredients that are included in NCN products and what they do. So we’ve tried to help with a simple yet detailed description for each product, which includes: – why you should use it, what’s actually in it and why it works, and it will also let you know what skin types it’s suitable for. It’s a case of reading each one to see if it’s what you want.
Creating a routine
A routine is yours and yours alone. It could contain 2 or 3 products – it could contain many more.
It comes down to things like what your budget is or how much time you have in the mornings and evenings. Your routine also doesn’t have to be the same every time – you can alternate the products you use between the morning and evening – or you could use them on alternative days – it really does come down to working out what is right for you.
We’ve broken down a typical skincare regime into 6 stages – which are shown below, each with the relevant NCN products listed. On top of that there are occasional treats – some of which you can apply as frequently as daily, others once a week or month.
To begin with you may want to take it easy and be careful not to overload your skin – perhaps one item from each stage. Then once you have got a feel for what’s working for you, you can then consider adding in additional products. Every person’s skin is different and what may work for someone else won’t necessarily have the same impact on you – so by adding in items bit by bit, it will help to really show you what works for you.
Making a switch
If you’re visiting our site, it’s highly likely that you’re already have some form of skincare routine, and making a switch to something new can be a big thing. You don’t have to take a huge leap – NCN products will work well with other brands and you can start out trying a single product and then gradually introducing others over time.
Using NCN products
Each product page has an instructions tab, which gives full details of how to use that product. Please read these carefully – for example some products can’t be applied at the same time as each other – or you should only ever really apply retinol at night.
Also – it’s important to remember that NCN products are packed with high concentrations of active ingredients, so a little will really go a long way. You should only ever need to apply just enough to cover your skin.
