A morning skincare routine can help set your complexion up for the day ahead, especially with so much dirt and pollution in the city air. By starting with a nourishing cleansing duo, following with a hydrating moisturiser and finishing with a glow-boosting face primer, you can create the appearance of fresher, youthful skin in just a few steps.


  1. A light-tone model with a citrusy, soft orange-coloured oil cleanser all over her face.

    Step 1: Citrus oil cleanser

    Massage the Goddess Cleansing Rituals citrus oil cleanser onto the face and around the eye area gently. Immerse muslin cloth in warm water and apply to the face to melt off your makeup. For a magic steam-clean, press warm muslin cloth onto the face for 20 seconds to open your pores.

  2. A light-tone model wearing a charcoal wash-off mask cleanser while holding the charcoal cleanser in front of her

    Step 2: Charcoal cleanser

    Massage charcoal cleanse into wet face until it turns white, avoiding eye area. Wet muslin cloth in warm water and wash off.

  3. An open, pearly-white face cream in a glass jar with a rose-gold lid that has the CT logo printed on it.

    Step 3: Magic cream moisturiser

    Apply the Magic Cream moisturiser using Charlotte’s Magic Skin Massage. First, apply cream to the tips of the middle 3 fingertips of each hand. Blend into your cheeks starting from the lower cheek, near the mouth, in a sweeping motion up & out. Repeat this motion, moving up the face. To blend in the excess, tap your cheeks with your fingertips in a pitter-patter motion, starting from the top of the cheek bone and working down.

    Place your forefingers under your cheekbones, starting from the nose. Push upwards, into your bone structure, and outwards, smoothing your fingers along your cheekbones, finishing at your ear. Repeat three times.

    Using your thumb and forefinger gently pinch your jawline, 2 seconds per pinch, moving along the line from your chin outwards. Finish by running your thumb and forefinger along your jaw again, in a sweeping motion, to smooth out skin.

    Apply cream to the tips of the middle 3 fingertips of each hand. Starting from the middle of the forehead, massage the cream into the skin in 3 circular motions, moving outwards towards the temples. Pat in any excess cream with your ring finger to stimulate micro-circulation.

    Apply a light pressure on your temples for 5 seconds to finish the massage and be ready to take on the world!

  4. An open, soft champagne-coloured primer with the CT logo printed on the bottle with a rose-gold-coloured cap.

    Step 4: Wonderglow face primer

    For a ‘no makeup’ look, apply the Wonderglow face primer using your fingers, focusing on top of the cheekbones to lift your features.

  5. A fair foundation in a rectangular bottle with the CT logo printed on it and a rose-gold-coloured cap.

    Step 5: Light wonder foundation

    If you are applying underneath your foundation, follow step 8, then apply Light Wonder foundation on top for luminous coverage.
