As the weather changes and we start to get a spring in our step our skin needs some extra TLC after the cold winter months – especially as the wedding date draws closer!
We have tried and tested some of the best new products on the market for a quick yet very effective at-home beauty regime with stunning results.
Step 1: Remove
Remove any make-up and the days built up of dirt with a gentle cleanser. The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Make-Up Remover (£19.99 for 100ml, Holland and Barrett) gently tackles even the hardest to remove make-up and dissolves it away. Jojoba also has anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties and can gently and effectively remove any traces of cosmetics from the pores, in order to efficiently allow the skin to breath and regenerate, important for maintaining a healthy complexion.
Step 2: Cleanse and Exfoliate
We have been converted to the range by Skintruth, available from Sally stores, the brand offers salon-quality formulas and products that are targeted to help different skin types. Cleanse with the Skintruth Optimise Facial Wash (£6.99 for 200ml) and then get rid of any dead skin cells lurking on the surface with a gentle exfoliation – try their Skintruth Optimise Gentle Facial Exfoliator (£6.99 for 150ml) formulated with Aloe Vera and Starflower extract.
Step 3: Rejuvenate
A pioneering range of luxury face masks has just hit beauty counters – featuring 24carat gold dust to combat signs of aging and super hydrating marine algae. The Casmara peel-off masks (£9.99, available at Boots) come in four varieties depending on your skin’s needs. Each kit contains a peel-off mask, a conditioning cream and a spatula for easy application. For a skin detox we recommend the Purifying Mask Kit – formulated with active ingredients from the sea and Cerasome Oxygen to help boost oxygen levels in the skin.
Step 4: Replenish
There are two wonder products on the market for some serious skin hydration. Previoulsy only available in specialist pharmacies and high-end beauty stores, the cult Lait-Creme from French brand Embryolisse is now available on the high street. Choose from the Lait-Creme Concentre (the original miracle cream) or the Lait-Creme Fluide (a lighter version) and they will become a staple in your beauty bag. The cream works as a moisturiser, anti-ager, primer, post-shave balm and more- handling every skincare need in just one tube. Now available at Boots.
