I love SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF antioxidant serum which contains 10% vitamin C. Antioxidants protect your skin from environmental damage like UV rays and city pollution by neutralising free radicals so are great as part of any anti-ageing skincare routine, particularly if your goal is a brighter complexion.
Makeup with SPF doesn’t replace sunscreen as we simply don’t apply it in a thick or even enough layer. Instead it should be thought of as your second line of defence against UV rays once you’ve already applied sunscreen because two forms of sun protection are better than one! This portable little brush can be kept in your handbag and dusted over your makeup every few hours in Spring and Summer to top up your protection.
Although very effective at removing grease and dirt, most foaming cleansers leave the skin feeling dry and parched. Not this one. It contains ceramides and hyaluronic, which means that skin stays hydrated despite the deep clean. Even better news is that this gentle gel cleanser contains niacinamide to calm inflammation and is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores, so it’s perfect for acne sufferers.
I’m now in my mid 30s, so one of my top skin priorities is preventing wrinkles and keeping my skin smooth and firm for as long as possible. This means that I use a product containing vitamin A at night. There are a couple I go between, but I’ve just topped up my Medik8 Crystal Retinal again as it provides all the same benefits as retinol, without the usual irritation.
As we head into the winter months, the air is colder and harsher and central heating reduces humidity levels even further. To combat dry, rough or flaky skin, I love NeoStrata Ultra Smoothing Lotion, which is best applied within 5 minutes of your bath or shower to really help lock moisture in.
