Step 1

First things first, cleanse your skin. There's no point having a facial if you haven't washed off all that unseen dirt and pollution. Use Jurlique's Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Clearnsing Mousse to gently and effectively cleanse and lift away make-up and impurities. Pump the dispenser once or twice, massage the mousse gently over damp skin avoiding the eye area and rinse thoroughly.

Step 2

Next you want to hydrate your skin. Lightly spritz the Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense Deluxe Edition (available from Monday!) onto your face a couple of times. It's a refreshing and hydrating pick-me-up that smells gorgeous! You can use it twice a day following cleansing or ay time your skin feels dehydrated.

Step 3

To lock in that moisture and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day, apply the Activating Water Essence. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and gently press over your face, neck and decolletage.

Step 4

Next, you want to apply the Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum to target those fine lines and revitalise your complexion. Add two pumps of the serum into your palms and warm the product to activate the natural ingredients. Gently press the serum into your skin to feed it with antioxidants and radiance-boosting botanicals, such as peach leaf tree extract and ginseng (an anti-ageing ingredient!). This is a key stage in your epress facial as it has a higher concentration of ingredients - plus it's great for mums who want to increase luminosity in their skin.

Step 5

Lastly, apply the Rose Moisture Plus Antioxidant Moisturising Cream using just a small amount on your face, neck and decolletage. The rosa gallica extract in the cream will help to rebalance, hydrate and soothe skin, whilst antioxidants such as green tea, grape seed and turmeric will protect skin from pollution and other environmental damage. Your skin will feel so soft and supple!

Top tip!

For that extra boost of radiance, apply a treatment mask once of twice a week. The Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream Mask is deeply hydrating and helps improve skin's moisture levels, leaving skin looking and feeling smooth, soft and radiant. Apply an even layer to the skin avoiding the eye area. Relax for ten minutes. Gently press in excess product after ten minutes or remove with warm damp cotton pads as desired. Alternatively, it can be left on overnight so it is the perfect mask for ladies with little time to themselves!
