Trending Skincare Hack: Slugging

April 01, 2022

If you struggle with dry skin… we have the solution for you. Introducing Slugging, the K-Beauty skincare method that is taking the social media world by storm.

The aim of slugging is to prevent transepidermal water loss and thus lock moisture in your skin. The method is to complete your nightly skincare routine as you normally would, and then as the final step of the routine, add a thick layer of an occlusive product such as pure coconut oil. The term ‘slugging’ is derived from the texture of occlusive products.

Despite the method currently trending, it has been an aspect of individuals' routines for decades back. The method is not only great for facial skincare routines, but can also be utilised on the entire body.

Slugging would be a great addition to the skincare routine of those that are using the Advanced Cosmetica Illuminating Skincare range as the entire range features Aloe Vera as a base, which is well known for its hydrating properties. When executing slugging with the Illuminating Series, follow the below steps to achieve hydrated, glowing and vibrant skin.

  1. Cleanse with the Illuminating Cleanser to remove dirt and oil from the pores. 2. Target pigmentation and calm your skin with the Illuminating Serum which features Vitamin B3, C, E, Rose and Chamomile.
  2. Prompt hydration and seal moisture with the Illuminating Moisturiser featuring Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil.
  3. Finally, apply a layer of pure coconut oil (or a similar product) to protect the skin, aid repair and lock in moisture.
  4. Wake up with glowing, hydrated and vibrant skin!
