When should you exfoliate? Discover when to exfoliate and how exfoliator fits into your MAGIC SKINCARE routine!

WHEN SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE? Before or after cleansing?

You can exfoliate your face as part of your morning or evening skincare routine, whichever suits you best! Using an acid exfoliator like Charlotte’s NEW! Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial can take up to 20 minutes, so set aside some extra time once a week to dedicate to a relaxing morning skincare routine or a magic pamper night!

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE?

While you use cleansers, moisturisers and Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir every day as part of your daily routine, you should only exfoliate once a week!

DO YOU EXFOLIATE BEFORE OR AFTER CLEANSING?

You should exfoliate your face when it is freshly cleansed and free of product so that the gentle acids and hydrating ingredients can work their MAGIC on your skin as effectively as possible. So before exfoliating, use a hydrating cleanser like Charlotte's Magic Hydration Revival Cleanser. This power of three cleanser cleanses, hydrates, and gives your complexion a magic skin glow and perfectly primes your face for applying exfoliator.

Tilbury Tip: For extra hydration, cleanse with Charlotte's Magic Hydration Revival Cleanser and then apply Charlotte's Magic Hydrator Mist for a second surge of moisture.

WHAT TO DO AFTER EXFOLIATING

After cleansing and exfoliating your face, you should continue your magic skin routine as normal! Charlotte recommends following with a high-performance serum like Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, revitalising eye cream like Magic Eye Rescue, then a magic moisturiser like the ICONIC Charlotte's Magic Cream or Charlotte's Magic Water Cream gel moisturiser.

FREE SERUM! Every bottle of Charlotte’s Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial comes with a FREE MINI DELUXE SAMPLE of Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir in the box, so you can follow with your next magic skincare step straight away!

If you’d like to truly indulge and use a face mask during your morning or evening skincare routine, you should use it immediately after your exfoliator and before serum and moisturisers! Charlotte recommends her Goddess Skin Clay Mask to soften and brighten the look of your skin, or her Instant Magic Dry Facial Sheet Mask to provide intense hydration in an advanced dry textile mask!

WHY SHOULD YOU MOISTURISE AFTER EXFOLIATING?

If using your acid exfoliant as part of your morning skincare routine, it’s recommended to use a moisturiser with SPF afterwards. Charlotte’s Magic Cream is a research-powered, rich formula that is enriched with SPF15, and Charlotte’s Magic Cream Light is a light-textured moisturiser with SPF20!

After your acid exfoliator smooths, resurfaces and hydrates your skin, Charlotte’s magic moisturisers flood your skin with MORE essential moisture and hydration with the power of supercharged oils and ingredients. Whether you use your exfoliator in the morning or evening make sure you apply a moisturiser after exfoliating to perfectly prep your skin for makeup or the day ahead, or feed your skin effective, plump-effect, moisturising ingredients overnight!

Tilbury Tip: If you prefer a lightweight, fragrance-free moisturiser, discover Charlotte's Magic Water Cream to drench skin with hydration and create a fresh water glow.

    Tilbury Tip: If you have not used acids in your magic skincare routine before, Charlotte recommends leaving Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial on your skin for just 5 minutes for your first application, increasing the time by 5 minutes week-by-week until you reach the recommended full 20 minutes! This is to help your skin get used to the ingredients; Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial is suitable for all skin types.
