What are Corrective Products?
Corrective Products are used to treat skin concerns. These are products that improve the overall health and appearance of our skin. They often have active ingredients, key to improve skin concerns as well as improving our skin texture and tone. Not everyone needs a corrective product, we can advise if this would benefit you during your consultation.
