The secret to beautiful, healthy looking skin lies in the little details, making small alterations to your beauty regime. How do you make it feel, look, and stay fresh through the day? We crack the code here:
Mist in the morning
After gently cleansing your face (no rubbing), pat dry with a towel and spray on a face mist instead of using a toner. We suggest Kama Ayurveda’s Pure Rose Water.
Splurge on a serum
A skincare step often ignored, face serums help keep the moisture level of your skin balanced, reduce blemishes and smoothen out your skin with time. Just a few drops gently massaged on to your face before your daily moisturising will help hydrate parched skin. Lancôme Absolue L’Extrait Serum, with its pearl-like gel-emulsion, will make for a good investment.
Balance the base
Ditch heavy-duty foundation and opt for tinted moisturises with sun protection. They give you the right daytime coverage, protect you from UV rays, don’t feel thick on the face and add that instant shine. Try Dermalogica’s Sheer Tint SPF20, which is also great for sensitive skin.
To get that luminosity, use a natural-toned cream highlighter, like MAC’s Strobe Cream, on the high points of your cheekbones, the tip of your nose and above your brow bone and gently dab a peachy nude blush on the cheeks for that healthy winter flush. Keep the rest of your face bare.
Keep an oil handy
To maintain that radiance, dab a drop of face oil on your cheekbones at mid-day when your skin starts to loose its sparkle. The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil will do the trick.
