At this time of year, we’re all hoping for smooth, blemish free, gently sun-kissed skin, but the drying effects of winter can take time and effort to shirt. We’ve picked out some products designed to shortcut the process of sloughing off winter’s despond and help you get your glow back…
Start with a cleansing brush like the Magnitone Barefaced. This award-winning vibra-sonic brush cleans far more efficiently than cleanser alone. It’s completely waterproof, so you can use it in the shower if your mornings are rushed.
The combination of sonic oscillations and pulsed vibrations deep-cleanse, massage and tone your skin at the same time, just like a mini workout, but without the sweat! £70 from magnitone.co.uk or good beauty retailers.
ONE SMOOTH OPERATOR
A great exfoliant helps clear dead skin cells away. Choose something that has a gentle, natural abrasive, like walnut shells or apricot kernels rather than plastic microbeads.
BRYT’S BOOST SERUM
If your skin feels tired and dehydrated, then Bryt’s Boost Serum will nourish the skin with its blend of aloe vera, healing allantoin and rich ‘super antioxidants’ extracted from organic Australian wild-harvested plums Kakadu, Burdekin and Illawarra, which contain up to five times more antioxidant power than blueberries. The serum also contains essential oils and hyaluronic acid. £22 from brytskincare.co.uk and online stockists.
A face peel will bring an instant skin boost. Try a weekly treatment using Resurfizz, from The Hero Project. Step 1 is the Thermo Melt, a self-heating deep cleanse that opens pores, dissolves gunk and readies the skin for the Enzyme Fizz gel which turns into a foam.
The natural pomegranate enzymes fizz away, surrounding the skin with oxygen and deeply exfoliating to reveal a naturally resurfaced complexion without the need for harsh acids or exfoliators. Initially it feels a bit strange, but it helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, refine pores, soften lines and wrinkles and helps prevent future pore clogging. £49 from theheroproject.co.uk
