Your ideal daily skincare routine changes as you grow older.
Our 30s, 40s and 50s can be incredible decades, but also tend to be some of our busiest. Whether you’re raising kids, flourishing in your career, juggling both, or doing something completely different, an active lifestyle takes a toll on your skin. Around this time you may start to notice fine lines and sagging or thinning skin.
Developing a daily skincare routine for home using dermatologically developed products is essential to nurturing your skin into a youthful glow. Still, with so much advice and so many products available, it can be hard to know where to begin.
This step-by-step regime featuring Dp Dermaceuticals™ products has been specially designed to combat the signs of ageing. Putting aside just 10 minutes each morning and evening can help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.

Daily Skincare Routine Step 1: Cleanse
When: Morning and evening
Cleansing your face removes the grime, oil, dirt and pollution that can build up over the day. It’s an essential first step in your daily skincare regime, creating a blank slate to build on.
What are the benefits of cleansing my skin?
It’s vital to your skin’s appearance to properly remove the environmental impurities that can build up over the day and night. However, you don’t want to strip your face of your natural oils with harsh chemicals, acids or glycolic.
Look for products that protect your skin’s moisture while gently removing environmental impurities and residual make-up, including waterproof and transfer-resistant make-up, mascara and eyeliner.
As the name suggests, this revolutionary facial cleanser undergoes three transformations. Starting as a balm, it turns into a gel when massaged into dry skin. Adding water with cotton pads activates the milk stage, which is then easily rinsed off with lukewarm water.
The high-performing ingredients include Grape Seed Oils, HylaFuse (Hyaluronic Acid), Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Rice Bran Oil. Grape Seed Oil is high in antioxidants to help protect the skin from the effects of pollution, UV rays and ageing.
How to apply TRI-PHASE CLEANSER
Dab a small amount on your dry face. Gently massage into your skin in a circular motion, adding water as you go. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Pat dry.
What are the benefits of exfoliation?
While a cleanser will remove residual make-up and dirt, exfoliation provides a deeper clean, whisking away dulling residue and dead skin cells.
If you struggle with impure, dull, roughened, congested or clogged skin, try exfoliating regularly. Using a superior product can also help reduce the signs of ageing, such as fine lines, pores, age spots, wrinkles, uneven tone and acne scars.
This exfoliant doubles as a cleanser, rapidly purifying and clarifying by gently removing dulling residue and dead skin cells. The result is a renewed and healthy-looking complexion.
Along with other high-performance ingredients, MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT contains bamboo powder, which is a rich source of natural silica. Silica is a gentle abrasive that helps to exfoliate the top layers of skin for a beautifully smooth finish.
Bamboo powder is smoother than exfoliants that come from salt, nuts or grains, making it the perfect option for sensitive skin.
How to apply MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT
After cleansing with TRI-PHASE CLEANSER, apply an almond-sized amount of MICRO DERM EXFOLIANT to slightly moistened hands. Gently exfoliate by moving your fingertips in light circular motions around your face, avoiding the eye area. Remove with a damp sponge or face cloth.
Daily Skincare Routine Step 2: Hydrate
Serums are thinner than a moisturiser, with a gel-like consistency. They give skin an extra dose of nutrients and active ingredients. Serums should always be applied before a corrector or moisturiser to help your skin lock in hydration.
What are the benefits of using a serum?
Serums can help restore and fortify your skin against the visible signs of sun and environmental damage. They also work hard to combat the signs of fatigue, restoring vitality and energy to your appearance.
Originally designed to be used directly after a Dermapen microneedling procedure to neutralise free radicals, ANTIOXIDANT COCKTAIL works like an environmental shield. It diffuses the ageing effect of pollution, stress and prolonged sun exposure. This restorative product is ideal for sun-damaged, prematurely aged, or pigmented skin.
The boost of Vitamin C encourages healthy cell turnover and regeneration, helping repair damage from sun exposure and collagen loss. Collagen-stimulating Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) assists in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
How to apply ANTIOXIDANT COCKTAIL
After exfoliating each morning, apply 2-3 pumps to your face, neck and décolleté. Massage lightly until absorbed.
What serum should I use if I have very dehydrated skin?
If your skin is particularly dehydrated, roughened or irritated, try incorporating a hydrating serum in either your morning or evening routine. Extra hydration restores harmony to all skin types and forms a ‘second skin’, delivering an immediate intensive moisturising and soothing effect. Our recommendation …
HYLA ACTIVE for an intensive moisture infusion
HYLA ACTIVE diffuses the appearance of visible redness and inflammation. Dp Dermaceutical’s breakthrough hyaluronic acid (HA) formulation, HylaFuse, delivers biologically active HA and active ingredients deeper into your skin. This revitalising serum continues to hydrate and nourish your skin for up to eight hours after application.
HYLA ACTIVE contains a high concentration of HylaFuse together with bio-active ingredients Zinc and Vitamin B5 to promote regeneration and repair for a younger appearance. Cherish the feeling of deep hydration, comfort and rejuvenation.
How to apply HYLA ACTIVE
After cleansing and exfoliating the skin in either morning or evening, apply 2-3 pumps of HYLA ACTIVE to dry skin. Massage lightly until absorbed.
Daily Skincare Routine Step 3: Correct
When: Morning and evening
Replenishing solutions and correcting creams are essential to combat signs of ageing. For optimal results, apply your corrector after your serum to promote intensive repair and hydration.
What’s the benefit of correctors?
Correctors soften the appearance of fine to deep lines and can even visibly firm and lift atrophied contours. A dermatologically developed, concern-specific corrector is a non-negotiable in your daily skincare routine for a brighter, clearer complexion.
A replenishing solution ‘must-have’ that promotes intensive repair and structure. It visibly strengthens vulnerable complexions and boosts hydration. VITAMIN RICH REPAIR is also a correcting cream specially formulated to help boost Dermapen and other rejuvenation procedure results. Enriched with essential daily vitamins (A, B, C, E), peptides and antioxidants, it’s also suitable to support your on-going skincare regime.
Powering VITAMIN RICH REPAIR’s anti-ageing properties are the two stable active derivatives of Vitamin A, Retinyl Palmitate and Retinyl Acetate. The smaller molecule structure penetrates deeper into your skin layers, working to repair the lower layers where collagen and elastin reside. It’s also gentler than other Vitamin A derivatives, perfect if you have sensitive skin.
How to apply VITAMIN RICH REPAIR
As part of your regular morning skincare routine, use 2–3 pumps of VITAMIN RICH REPAIR on your dry skin. Massage lightly until absorbed.
RETINAL ACTIVE contains a powerful combination of rejuvenation properties and anti-ageing antioxidants. Combatting skin damage from sun and ageing, this anti-ageing star helps reduce wrinkled, sagging, dull, and uneven skin. The Retinaldehyde assists with lessening the appearance of scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and atrophy.
Use RETINAL ACTIVE as an ongoing night cream to visibly firm and lift atrophied contours. It’s not recommended for use during pregnancy, or as an immediate follow-up to skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling.
How to apply RETINAL ACTIVE
This product works as a nourishing night cream. Only a thin layer needs to be applied to cleansed face, neck and décolleté every third evening for the first two weeks after your procedure.
Daily Skincare Routine Step 4: Moisturise
When: Morning and evening
A superior moisturiser is a fundamental step in any daily skincare routine. It helps protect your skin against harsh environmental conditions and improves hydration. Used after correctives, the right moisturiser also locks in the benefits for a longer-lasting effect.
What’s the benefit of moisturising?
High-quality moisturisers perform as a natural barrier on the skin. They help lock in hydration and the benefits of other products while also blocking out environmental factors and free radical attacks.
A concern-specific moisturiser can even relieve the symptoms of xerosis, dermatitis, eczema and post-operative dryness. A rehydrating and fortifying moisturiser is an absolute must for normal to very dry skin types.
As its name implies, this protective product provides a biocompatible ‘veneer’ layer across your skin. A powerful combination of proteins, botanicals, peptides and cholesterol replicate the skin’s natural barrier function.
The other valuable ingredient, Squalane, is an intense moisturising oil naturally found in the skin that regulates excess oil production and does not clog pores. Squalane maintains your skin’s moisture barrier and hydration for boosted, plump and soft skin.
How to apply SKIN VENEER
Apply sparingly to face, neck and décolleté twice a day, in the morning and evening. Allow it to absorb and dry.
Daily Skincare Routine Step 5: Protect
Generally, we want to cover our skin most when it’s inflamed. However, you need to think carefully about what products you use, so they don’t aggravate the already delicate areas.
That doesn’t mean you can’t step outside until your flare-up has calmed down. Simply look for products suitable for sensitive skin that provide good coverage without clogging pores.
What’s the benefit of a covering product?
The ideal covering product works in two ways. Firstly, it allows you to face the day confidently by camouflaging any red, blemished, pigmented or otherwise problematic skin. If you’ve done your research and chosen a dermatologically developed cover product, you can also expect it to assist with reducing inflammation and protect you from the sun’s harmful rays.
Soothe and protect your skin with COVER RECOVER
If you’re looking for a product that covers problem areas while also nourishing, hydrating and cooling your skin COVER RECOVER is your go-to final step in your morning skin routine.
It’s the result of many years of research, product development and collaboration with medical specialists. This soothing foundation contains medicating actives that help with the recovery of your skin while covering up any blemishes, redness or irritation. Available in 11 versatile shades with SPF30/PA+++ protection, you can use it as an all-over daily sunscreen.
COVER RECOVER veils your skin, instead of coating it, providing excellent coverage without clogging pores.
How to apply COVER RECOVER
Use COVER RECOVER for daily coverage, and immediately after rejuvenation treatments such as skin needling. Apply a small amount to each section of the face, and gently pat COVER RECOVER all over the face or treated area until you achieve a flawless finish.
It’s important to remember that any product with sunscreen needs to be applied 20 minutes before going out in the sun, and reapplied at least every couple of hours as sunscreen may sweat or wash off.
