My skin is oily, so I don’t need moisturiser: False

The common belief that skipping moisturiser will help dry out oily skin, is false! If you don't provide your skin with hydration and moisture, it can have the opposite effect; encouraging your skin to produce more oil, worsening the cycle of sebum production.

Instead of skipping moisturiser completely, opt for something light-weight that will not leave skin oily or shiny. Ki Oil Control Moisturiser keeps oil in check for balanced, healthy looking skin. The addition of Matmarine™ helps to control oils, giving you a beautiful matte finish.

Blackhead strips are the best way to get rid of blackheads: False

They may seem satisfying at the time, but using blackhead strips are not the best way to remove blackheads. They can strip the skin of natural oils, making the area irritated and sensitive. The ongoing pulling of strips may even cause scarring!

A course of microdermabrasion treatments are a safer, more effective way to reduce blackheads for smoother, clearer skin. Our Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating cleanser can also help to reduce congestion and blackheads. Available in clinics nationwide.

I work inside all day, so don’t need to wear sunscreen: False

It can take just minutes for the sun to have an effect on our skin; so even if you work in an office; walking from the car to work or strolling to lunch is enough time to cause damage.

To protect your skin, wear a sunscreen every day. Ki Sunscreen  protects against skin damage and premature ageing caused by UVA and UVB rays. The addition of Matmarine™ helps to control oils, giving you a beautiful matte finish. 

I have adult acne, my skin must be oily: False

There are various reasons why adult acne develops; from stress, hormones, diet and even environmental factors. To help get on top of yours, come in for a free consultation with one of our skin experts.
