As a beauty editor, I have the honour of trying and testing pretty much every beauty product that flashes a green light within my product-obsessed radar. As such, I get to know what’s worth the bucks…and the beauty items to avoid. As autumn approaches, my complexion is looking slightly dry and dull. It’s time to switch up my evening skincare routine – and these are the items that deliver fast and effective results.
1. Cleansing Skincare: Dr Felix Bertram’s Viliv, Clean Off the Day, £33 (200ml), www.cosmania.ni
On the first day the Lord said, “Let there be light,” and then the leading Swiss skincare expert, Dr Felix Bertram created this incredible cleanser. No seriously, it is that good. The vegan formula works well on every skin type, thoroughly yet gently cleansing away all impurities and ensuring the skin (and the world) is restored to one of harmonious balance. September has brought me the delights of a dry and dull complexion(yay). Fortunately, I was able to reach in my beauty arsenal and grab this little gem.
Combining the exact natural ingredients to guarantee a healthy and nourished luminosity, the cleanser achieves a calm and balanced complexion everyone would love.
2. Serum For Skincare: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid +B5, £5.90, www.lookfantastic.com
Tackling dryness, dullness or premature aging is quite simple – the key component needed is moisture. Thus, your skincare routine needs to include this proven ingredient, whilst consuming more water and less coffee! Apply a good hyaluronic acid serum in the evening before adding your overnight mask or rich moisturiser. Give it a week and then enjoy some much-appreciated compliments.
3. Tackle Dryness With DHC Astaxanthin All-in-One Gel, £51.92 (120ml), www.yesstyle.com
If you haven’t yet heard of this wonder ingredient, listen up – because your skin will seriously love you for it! Studies have shown astaxanthin to greatly improve skin elasticity, whilst thwarting the dreaded signs of aging with impressive power. Sourced from green algae, it is 6000 times more potent than vitamin C, providing the ultimate in anti-aging and protective abilities. When combined with DHC’s included hyaluronic acid, the results are literally phenomenal. Expect any dryness, dehydration, dullness or general signs of aging to be replaced with a veil of ultra-hydrated radiance.
