Just when you think you’ve got your routine nailed, your skin starts to misbehave. Here’s why that might be happening…      

Skincare has come a long way in the last few years: we’re no longer just cleansing, toning and moisturising. 

Instead, routines have got longer, ingredients more complex and we’re mostly all educating ourselves on what works and what doesn’t.

But just when you’ve become an SPF addict and you think you’ve got your morning and evening routines nailed, something stops working. 

It could be a sudden breakout, unexplained dry patches, or maybe your skin’s just feeling a bit tight and irritable for absolutely no reason at all.

Don’t stress though because it’s something that’s happened to just about all of us at some point – and that’s why we’ve created this quiz. 

Scroll down and fill in the answers that are most applicable to you and your routine, and we’ll tell you what’s most likely to be causing the issues. 

Happy, glowing skin awaits…
