BeautySkincare saviours to revive your skin
It’s time to set your New Year’s resolutions and pop a rigorous skincare regime on top of the list.
Summer and the silly season mean two things: long days under the sun and late nights celebrating.
The combination of these two factors means that our skin can be left feeling dull, dehydrated and desperate for attention.
To help you cut through the noise in the ever-changing beauty scene, we’ve curated our top picks to take your skincare from okay to amazing:
We all know that going to sleep with a full face of makeup is a big no-no, so it should come as no surprise that not taking off every speck of makeup is just as bad.
An easy way to ensure that you’re taking your cleansing seriously is with Clinique’s Take-the-Day-Off Cleansing Balm. We love it because it breaks down and dissolves even the most stubborn of makeup while being extremely gentle on the skin. Remove it until there isn’t a single trace of makeup visible on a cotton pad and then follow up with a water-based cleanser to remove any further impurities.
HOLY GRAIL MOISTURISER
Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Face Cream is a cult favourite for a reason. Beloved by makeup artists, skincare aficionados and mere mortals alike. This cream has a rich yet lightweight formula that instantly hydrates the skin. It’s also enriched with a mineral water blend that leaves the skins feeling smooth and plump while also looking visibly fresh and glowing.
NEW-AGE BEAUTY GADGET
Say goodbye to mundane and time-consuming sheet masks with Foreo’s UFO. This nifty beauty gadget is the world’s first smart mask treatment. Combining the latest in skincare tech with Korean mask formulas so that you can enjoy an indulgent facial treatment in just 90 seconds.
It also has a Thermo-Therapy function that helps the mask’s ingredients penetrate the skin. A Cryo-Therapy function that helps with firming and utilises T-sonic pulsations to help promote micro blood circulation. Giving your skin some R&R at home has never been easier!
DOSE OF VITAMIN C
Need to rediscover your zest in life and rejuvenate your skin ASAP? Look no further than Clinique’s Fresh Pressed Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C, which helps brighten and even your skin tone.
This isn’t your average serum. It uses a dual-chamber packaging to isolate the pure Vitamin C until you activate it. Ensuring that you receive maximum results as pure Vitamin C naturally degrades when exposed to oxygen. To add this to your routine, we recommend mixing two drops into your moisturiser in the morning and at night.
You can shop all these of products at St. Collins Lane.
Clinique, Foreo and Bobbi Brown are available at Debenhams, located on Lower Ground.
