Whether it's the heating or the colder dry air that's caused our faces to age a few centuries through winter; it's now time to lift those dead layers off and get our skin ready for spring/summer 2015! So here's my skincare hero products for achieving a flawless and rejuvenated face for the season ahead.
It's all about multi-tasking in beauty if you ask me! This is my favourite cleanser/mask at the minute as it tackles not only removing any extra makeup on the face but also lifts away the dead, dry winter skin. The key ingredient in this hardworking product is the lactic acid; which is one of the greatest all natural ingredients for removing dull, dead skin. Use daily for cleansing and leave on for a few minutes to allow the acid to work its magic, then wipe off with a warm face towel.
2. The Day Cream
La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Day Cream
If budget is no problem and you're looking for a game changer in your daily skincare- look no further.
The caviar cream is a rich, decadent texture that smooths out and absorbs to a more mattifying finish without a hint of oilyness. Also it has a light reflecting illuminator (so on trend!)
Hydrating, lifting and prevents further anti ageing with its unique and rare ingredients (white truffle, golden caviar and white honey.) A price tag not for all but reasonable once you see those results.
2. The facial serum
Rodial Dragons Blood XXL Sculpting Serum
The serum in the incredible dragons blood range from UK skincare favourite Rodial. It visibly and instantly works by plumping and hydrating skin with Hyaluronic acid, dragons blood (the red sap from the Socotra tree) as well as peptides that all effectively fight signs of anti ageing. This is my go-to skin pick me up and is best applied at night before night cream.
3. The night cream
Elemis Pro Intense Lift effect Night cream
A lovely lightweight texture yet also intensely hydrating makes Elemis pro intense an award winner. A powerful combination of botanical stem cells and patented ingredients make it a night cream keeper, with 75% of users saying it leaves their skin looking firmer. Apply after your serum on cleansed skin at night.
5. The resurfacing Treatment
Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel
I swear by this cult philosophy product for giving a serious glow and plumpness back into my skin. A blend of natural acids plus uplifting vitamin C the peel will resurface tired skin and soften fine lines caused by dryness. It comes in two parts- first Apply the vitamin c mask and massage for 60 seconds, followed by the warming acid gel and massage again leaving on for 2-3 minutes. Rinse off to reveal a smoother, more refined skin texture.
