Here’s a thought. Instead of just making the age old resolution of losing weight and getting fit this year, how about vowing to really take care of your skin too! When we meet or greet people, we engage with each others faces – we judge health, happiness and wellbeing by our face and eyes, not how many pounds we have lost. Yes, the more exercise you do will undoubtedly whip those lymph glands into a frenzy and improve your hair and skin no end, but alas, it’s not enough. We commit a long list of skincare sins year round, such as unprotected sunbathing, daily applications of make-up, stress, late nights and poor cleansing – so of course we owe it to our pores, our t-zones and our décolleté to give something back this year! The gym may take off pounds but a good skincare routine can take off years! Let me introduce the best kept beauty secrets currently making headlines…
Start cleansing from the inside out with Dr Brandt Water Boosters, full of anti oxidants to increase skin’s health and vitality. One droplet in a glass of water is the equivalent to 15 cups of Green Tea!
If you already take multivitamins you’ll have no trouble adding some clinically proven skin supplements to your routine. Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Supplements will aid and support your body’s Internal Defence against breakouts and congested skin. SKIN.NY Hair Skin Nails Secret Nutrients deliver 12 key ingredients chosen specifically to nourish the dermal layer of your skin, a Bath & Unwind bestseller all year round.
I recommend Alpha H Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask, suitable for all ages and skin types, less the super sensitive ones. This is a Make Up Artists favourite to prep skin, leaving the complexion visibly more supple, dewy and radiant. Finally, for something more soothing and moisturising, especially in a really hot or really cold climate, never be without Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Cream Mask, another personal favourite of mine.
