Q: How do I know what type of skin care product suits my skin type?
- Firstly begin by cleansing your face, then wait approx. 30 minutes before applying any other products.
- Look at your skin in the mirror, does it look dry and feel tight? If so you have a “Dry” skin type
- Does your skin feel itchy or irritated? Then you have “Sensitive, Fragile” skin type.
Trying using our new SKN-RG Organics, (Soil Association Certified Organic) Skincare System suited for Dry, Sensitive and Fragile Skins. Specifically formulated to combat both dry and irritated skins, working in harmony with your skins natural defences reducing dryness and flare-ups without greasiness or clogging the skin.
If your skin feels oily across your forehead progressing downwards in a “T” shape you have “Combination” skin type. If you feel the need to absorb oiliness over a larger area of your face then you have “Oily” skin.
“My skin is normal combination do you have a moisturiser to cater for my sensitivity?” Yes simply select Normal Combination which will reduces combination concerns with gentle care.
“My skin is normal combination but not sensitive what product should I use?”
Try using SKN-RG Advanced , the enzymes present in the formulations breakdown dead skin cells at a faster rate reducing oiliness and skin imperfections whilst optimising cellular renewal allowing the skin to absorb the products components.
Always test your skin type at least four times a year in line with the seasons as your skin will require different products.

Q: Why doesn’t SKN-RG make products with sunscreen?
At present there are no efficient safe Soil Association approved sunscreen actives. Many still contain highly toxic ingredients including; nano particles, polymers, petroleum or use alcohol to drive down the protective element into the skin. SKN-RG Laboratory Researchers are actively searching for an ingredient that is full tested as a) being long term safe for both use on skin and b) the environment. SKN-RG asks clients to ensure they carefully and fully check their sunscreen products before application onto the skin.
Q: What comes first sunscreen or moisturiser?
We recommend that sunscreen should go on last after moisturisation to block out the sun’s harmful rays, we do not feel that skincare products containing SPF are as effective as dedicated products that contain SPF.
Q: I use makeup with SPF do I still need sunscreen?
Yes always. SPF in makeup cannot substitute for full sun block protection. Which should be applied through-out the day.
Q: Can I mix my other skincare products with yours?
NO. We advise against mixing skincare types, as different skincare products contain different numbers of “Actives” some like SKN-RG’s include the use of Natural Retinol, AHA, & Enzymes, using too much of these from different companies “unmonitored” could cause irritation, so it is important to use one type of skincare like SKN-RG’s Systems which are fully monitored to harmonise and complement each other so you can receive the optimum benefit.
Q: Is there a difference between high street skincare and professional skincare products.
High street bands can be less concentrated and may or may not contain a similar number of actives, SKN-RG Products are specially formulated by Spa Industry experts and can be used in unison with specific SKN-RG Treatments.
SKN-RG products contain a concentrated number of “Actives” and are classified as “Performance” due to the number of active ingredients. Generally speaking SKN-RG Products give optimum results in shorter periods which cannot be obtained by over the counter products.
Q: I am in my twenties do I really need anti-ageing products?
Prevention is always better than cure, striking a balance between concentrated actives, optimum hydration and moisturisation is key to optimum skin preservation. Try our SKN-RG Organics range, and always use a high SPF factor.
Q: How can I reduce the lines and wrinkles on my face?
Exfoliation is so important, it removes dead and dulling surface skin cells, whilst providing a number of key Actives and “Quanta® Energy” which will give visible improvement. Team this with our Pro Oil or Organic Pro Serum and your skin will look better every week. Combined with our Eye Elixir for a little extra help.
