We love skincare, and to help you get the most out of your JIV.ELAN products we have put together these essential skincare do’s and don’ts for restoring and maintaining healthy, younger looking skin. Discover how washing, cleansing and moisturising rituals are vital for skin care and nourishment.


Choose a cream or serum that focuses on your primary skin concern, such as ageing, wrinkles or inflammation.

Washing ritual

Your skin needs to be clean before you apply any active agents. It’s a good habit to wash your hands before you wash your face, and use clean washcloths to avoid spreading bacteria.

Choosing products

Don’t over load on products. Good skincare products repair and protect at multiple levels. Too many products can cause conflicts, irritation and increased skin sensitivity.

No hot water

Hot water removes the natural oils that are necessary for maintaining healthy skin. Cold water won’t cleanse the skin properly. Tepid water is best for maintaining healthy skin.

No over cleaning

Cleansing your face more than twice a day will dry out your skin.

Go circular

Use small, circular movements and gentle pressure when cleansing and exfoliating your skin.

Use toner

Apply your toner when your skin is slightly damp; that way your moisturiser will absorb better.


Take your time to massage in moisturiser properly – this will improve circulation and add to your skin’s overall radiance.

Eye creams

Only apply eye creams in small dots around the eye. Never rub in, pull or tug on the skin. Apply using very gentle taps.


Sun exposure is directly linked to age-related skin problems, such as wrinkles. Avoid too much sun, always use sunscreen during the day, and cover up when you expect to be in the sun for long periods.

Manage stress

Stress that gets out of control can cause skin to become more sensitive and trigger breakouts and rashes. Try to manage stress as best you can.

Eat well

Find out if you’re allergic to any foods, and eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C.
