Ultraceuticals skincare for radiant skin

When it comes to gearing up for a big event, the most important step to never miss is skin prep. Think: your wedding day, birthday dinner, a night out with your besties - or just any time you want to sparkle and shine. Who doesn’t want their skin to look as smooth, clear and radiant as possible?

If you’re like us, you may already have an impressive line-up of Ultraceuticals products on rotation. However, if you’re looking to glow even more at your next event, you’ll want to consider adding these extra steps to prep and prime your skin. 


Counting down to a big event is the perfect excuse to treat your skin to some TLC. By this we mean, an excuse to book yourself in for a facial treatment. Our go-to party peel is the PHA Resurfacing Treatment; a gentle, dual-action peel that exfoliates, moisturises, plumps and cleanses the skin while improving the appearance of dryness and dehydration. The best part? There’s no recovery time so you can go about your day, at ease.

If you can’t make it to a clinic, prep your skin with an at-home exfoliator. Regular exfoliation will slough off uneven texture from the skin’s surface and remove excess oil and dirt that may clog your pores and dull your complexion. This will create a smooth surface for your makeup to glide on seamlessly. A bonus perk - your corrective serums will better absorb into your skin too. 

A product everyone needs in their routine? A hydrating serum. Why? When your skin lacks moisture, it loses its natural luminosity so you’ll want to bring back your glow with a product designed to boost hydration. Ultra B² Hydrating Serum is our must-have to transform dry, dehydrated skin into a bouncy, glass-like complexion. Apply it daily onto damp skin to dramatically improve your skin’s hydration levels and radiance. 


Your ideal time to relax, unwind and spend a little extra care on your evening skincare routine. After your double cleanse, give yourself a mini spa treatment by popping on a hydrating face mask (Ultra B² Hydrating Mask will do the trick). 

You’ll want to then lock in optimal hydration by applying a rich moisturiser. Ultra DNA³ Complex Recovery Night Cream will nourish, comfort and deeply hydrate your skin - so you’re guaranteed to wake up glowing. This will also ensure that your skin is calm, plumped, hydrated and ready for smooth makeup application the next day. 

If you’re (not so) lucky and get hit with a pesky blemish, we recommend calming the area with Ultra Clear Spot Complex. Apply it directly to the affected area to help clear your blemishes.
