Cold weather and central heating can take their toll on our skin at this time of year, leaving it dehydrated and irritated. I love to take five minutes out of my day to give mine a little extra TLC with my favourite Epionce skincare products.

With a mug of coffee nearby and a warm towel ready to pat my face dry, my routine goes something like this…



I start by washing my face with Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser to remove overnight build up of grime, oil and surface impurities, while leaving my skin feel completely comfortable. I love that this doesn't cause tightness or dryness, instead protecting my natural skin barrier… it's so gentle.

How to: Apply to damp skin, massage in for one minute and rinse off thoroughly. Pat dry gently.




Epionce Lytic TX is an active treatment with multiple functions. It calms any redness or irritation, gently unclogs pores, smoothes skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing fresh bright skin cells.

In addition to signature Epionce botanicals, Lytics contain salicylic acid, azelaic acid and zinc pyrithione – to safely and effectively reduce skin imperfections. This gentle but powerful blend smoothes skin texture and enhances anti-aging results.

Lytics are similar to retinoids in that they help visibly improve signs of ageing and minimise imperfections, without the irritation and side effects that some people experience.

How to: Apply to clean skin and leave to do its magic for 5-7 minutes before adding moisturiser (do not rinse). As this product contains active ingredients, it's best to introduce it slowly and build up to daily use. Start 2-3 times per week.




More than a moisturiser, Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion helps reduce visible signs of ageing while adding radiance to the skin. Expertly formulated to improve clarity and radiance, it nourishes while leaving skin well hydrated, smooth and glowing. With a lightweight texture, it feels beautiful on and I find that it sits really nicely under makeup.

Also available in a Lite or Cream formula for oily or dry skin.

How to: Gently massage into face, neck and décolletage morning and evening.




I wear Epionce Daily Shield Lotion Tinted SPF 50 every day of the year, regardless of the weather. Enhanced with antioxidant botanical ingredients, it gives sheer protection with a subtle tint and coverage… ideal for daily use alone or under makeup to protect from UV exposure. (Also available in a non tinted version).

How to: Apply generously every morning as the last step in your skincare routine. Wear alone or under makeup.
