Want to know how to get the most out of your Twelve Beauty favs? We dive into the world of product synergy and how it can transform your skincare. Read on to discover expert inside knowledge and learn how best to combine your skincare products to give your complexion an extra boost.
Product synergy is all about formulas that work together, each enhancing the performance of the other. We are talking about those seemingly magical skincare combinations that, as soon as you have discovered them, there is no going back. Your skin will never be the same again.
“An excellent duo is Clementine Cleansing Balm and our non-micellar cleansing water, Dara’s Water,” reveals Pedro Catalá, founder of Twelve Beauty. “The combination of these two fantastic cleansers is great as a double cleanse. The first one removes makeup effectively and dissolves the dirt embedded in the pores. And the second completes the cleansing process by removing any trace left behind. Skin feels thoroughly cleansed and plump.”
If you are looking for the ultimate powerhouse antioxidant treatment and protection for your skin, then combining Ideal Rebalancing Level Serum or Ideal Moisture Level Serum with Artemisia Power Protection Moisturiser SPF 50+ is the way to go. “I believe ‘more is more’ where antioxidants are concerned. Especially in today’s modern world where skin is exposed to poor air quality and harmful UV rays,” says Pedro.
It is not all about your face
Most of us tend to fall into the trap of focusing solely on our faces during our self-care routine, but our bodies deserve some love too. What’s more, the skin on the rest of our body is usually different from that of our faces and it has different needs. The skin on our face is normally finer and plumper, whereas our body tends to be drier, which can lead to flaky, itchy or even cracked skin.
Those with very thirst body skin are the ones that can benefit the most from learning how to combine skincare products. A good product duo for dry skin? Applying Jojoba Quench Body Serum first, followed by Rewarding Body Balm. This exquisite combination is the perfect way to restore dehydrated, damaged skin. The innovative body serum formula, supercharged with jojoba oil, leaves skin supple and locks in hydration, while the body balm nourishes skin and repairs barrier function.
Many of you may already know that the origins of Twelve Beauty are rooted in Pedro’s time working as a pharmacist at an oncology clinic in central London. This led him to create the collection’s first product, Rewarding Body Balm, designed to bring relief and comfort to patients’ dry and sensitive skin.
Nighttime radiance-restoring duo
Redefine your skin tone with a nighttime product pairing your complexion will love. “The natural ingredients of Charcoal Peace Calming Cleanser and Ideal Brightening Corrective Serum work together to help you achieve skin that glows from within,” says Pedro. Indeed, this particular product synergy leaves skin smoother, clearer and bursting with vitality.
Combine your skincare products for the ultimate SOS remedy
Although many of the brand’s products are designed to treat specific areas of the face or skincare concerns, the truth is that thanks to their complex formulation, they are actually multitasking superheroes.
A prime example is Rapid Eye Treatment, one of Twelve Beauty’s best sellers (and winner of the Beauty Shortlist Awards, Best Eye Treatment 2021). Designed to treat the delicate skin around the eyes, it also works wonders on skin suffering from redness, irritation or rosacea, thanks to the plant peptides and proteins it contains.
But that is not all. The combination of Rapid Eye Treatment and Nutritive Repair Emulsion is the go-to skincare duo sensitive and reactive skins swear by. The calming action of the eye cream is further boosted by the emulsion’s high concentration of cupuaçu and shea butters, and spent grain wax, leaving skin cosseted, balanced and less prone to redness flare-ups.
