When you think about it, our skin is really put through its paces every day. First off, there’s exposure to UV rays, which causes about 80% of the visible signs of ageing, then there’s pollution, lack of sleep and everyday stress. Phew! Enter skin saviour Clinique Superdefense SPF40 Fatigue + 1st Signs Of Age Multi-Correcting Gel*. A sweat- and humidity-resistant gel moisturiser, it contains vitamins C and E and ergothioneine, which can help defend against the impact of the external environment. Add a high SPF, and you’ve got a hard-working day cream. Plus, for instant effects, it contains microscopic pearls that give skin a subtle glow. Simply smooth on after cleansing.
Retinol has become a major buzzword, and for good reason: it’s been clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But there’s confusion about how to use it, as high-level concentrations can cause skin sensitivity. That’s where La Roche-Posay Retinol B3 Serum comes in. This lightweight serum contains a kind-to-skin combination of 0.1% pure retinol with 0.2% of a slow-releasing retinol, which is a steadier way to win the wrinkle race. By combining the two types, you get a retinol that’s effective without the negative side effects. It’s also teamed with niacinamide, which can calm irritation, as well as glycerin, which helps keep skin hydrated. Use after cleansing and before your moisturiser, two to three times a week. And always apply an SPF moisturiser the next day, as retinol can make skin more sensitive to sunlight.
There’s a lot of pressure on eye skincare to step up, mainly because the area around our eyes is delicate, so shows the signs of ageing more easily. Most products target dark circles and puffiness under the eye, but Prai Ageless Eye Tight Uplift Serum, tackles what’s happening under the brow and on the lid. It contains a clever, trademarked ingredient, Idealift, a lipodipeptide that supports the skin like scaffolding by boosting elastin levels (the more of which you have, the firmer your complexion). From now on, we’ll be using this straight after cleansing, both day and night.
We could all do with a little brightness in our lives right now, and that includes on our skin. Which is why you need to meet Liz Earle Brightening Botanical Drops*, a water-based gel that can be combined with your regular moisturiser, day or night, or applied on its own. Its water base gives it a a light, easily absorbed consistency and adds to the hydration levels of your skin. Plus, the formula is packed with hibiscus, a natural source of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This means it will very gently slough away dead cells hanging around the surface of skin, leaving your skin tone looking more even. The best news? You only need two drops per application.
Exfoliating is one of those steps in your beauty regime that you probably skip when time is short. But it’s a really important part of looking after your skin, as it gets rid of the debris and dead cells that can rob your complexion of its glow. A lot of exfoliators come with a side of negatives, however: rough scrubs can cause microscopic scratches on your skin, while harsh acids may strip it of natural oils. Step forward Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub*, which offers a gentle, three-in-one exfoliating process. First up, papaya and pineapple enzymes break down dirt, then gentle acids get to work on removing dead skin cells. Finally, soft, physical exfoliants buff away any lingering debris. Massage into dry skin after cleansing, but before moisturising, once or twice a week, for a super-smooth complexion.
