Matching a good natural skincare regimen with a healthy lifestyle is the best way to keep your skin strong and healthy. Like most things in life, routine and persistence are often the answer to delivering results, and reactive decisions to skin imperfections often don’t work. Quick ‘miracle treatments’ might fix the imperfection in the short term but, unless you address the cause of the issue, it is likely to reoccur.
At Au Natural Skinfood, products are focused on thickening the skin’s natural barrier system, so we can effectively fight environmental damage and skin disorders. By eliminating bad bacteria on the surface of the skin and by growing good bacteria, it is our belief that we can naturally strengthen our skin.

Do I really have to use all my products in sequence?
You now have your four Au Natural Skinfood skincare products – Cleanser, Brightening Lotion, Day Serum and Night Crème. How you apply these products is just as important at the products themselves. Considerable research and innovation is put into our formulations to ensure that we get the best results for you. If you want your skincare to work to its full potential, you should apply it in the correct order.
Should my night routine be different to my day routine?
While we may prefer those extra five minutes in bed after the alarm goes off, time can be better used on your skin. We have discussed the importance of following at least three steps morning and night, the difference in products is because your skin is exposed to different things while you sleep versus the daytime. Our daytime skin is exposed to an endless variety of contaminants, including dirt, makeup, airborne pollutants and bacteria. Our night-time skin is exposed to debris on our pillow, oil production and sweat. During the day the role of our skin is mainly offensive but at night it goes to work repairing itself and preparing for the next day. Hence the reason for different products at different times of the day.
Do my skincare products all need to be the same brand?
Each skincare company uses a variety of ingredients in their formulations, which are developed to work together and maintain a low PH for your skin. It is difficult to know for sure when mixing brands if ingredients are compatible with each other. Surprisingly “mixing it up” is pretty common, meaning we are overusing particular active ingredients found in different skincare products. This can irritate the skin, run the risk of breakouts, redness and developing a rash. At Au Natural Skinfood, we believe in keeping skincare simple. Using our four skincare products as recommended, along with a healthy diet, will deliver results for your skin and your family.
