Superfood Skincare That Should Be On Your Radar

We know the benefits of eating superfoods are huge – but what about using superfoods on our skin? Can they really offer the complexion transformation they promise? The short answer is yes. Choose the right superfood skincare product for your age, skin type and particular concerns and you will be amazed at what that bit of kale is capable of. Seriously, I knew there must be a better reason for having bad tasting veg in my life. Check out the following skincare superheroes.

This year has left most of us feeling somewhat lacklustre – and it shows on our skin. Sunday Riley’s Juno offers some pretty remarkable ingredients that will swiftly deal with such skin concerns. Where do I begin? This oil is bursting with star-quality components. From antioxidants to omega 3, 6 and 9, an array of super-nourishing oils, anti-inflammatory agents and vitamin C to boot – there’s no way your skin will be left looking and feeling anything other than exquisite by the morning!

The Best Facial Oils (For Dry Skin) To Suit Every Budget

Anyone who uses a face oil will know just what a precious skincare commodity they are – and big beauty brands know this. Ranging from acceptable pricing to downright outrageous, there is one thing that all face oils have in common; they all promise utter skin transformation. No matter how many amazing ingredients are in facial oils, they do not seep down into the skin to any significant depth – this means their ability to transform are somewhat limited. However, apply your hyaluronic acid or Vitamin C and then add your (worthy) facial oil and you will be super-impressed by the morning.

Now, some budget-friendly oils deliver as truly an impressive result as high-end luxury products. Then, there are others that cost the earth and do very little to help. Basically, you do not need to spend a fortune to reach those skincare goals. You just need to have the right skincare products and routine for your skin type and age. Here are the best face oils to treat dryness, for every budget.

1.Budget-Friendly:The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil, £6.93 (30ml), www.theordinary.deciem.com

the best facial oils for dry skin on every budget
Credit: The Ordinary

Firstly, let me just say I am probably the biggest fan of roses and (almost) all rose sourced skincare. Subsequently, I have reviewed a lot and my expectations now are pretty high.

The Ordinary hasn’t let me down yet. Budget-friendly and effective – they remain to be an awesome skincare brand. The vegan formula uses 100% pure rosehip seed oil. It contains a rich supply of linoleic acid vitamin A. These massively beneficial ingredients usually diminish during the heated extraction process. Hence, why this is cold-pressed. The face oil is incredible. Fact. This oil is great for every skin type. However, it significantly improves my dry skin.

A top tip would be at bedtime, once you have cleansed, splash your face with water and then apply the rosehip oil. This will allow for optimal absorption. Then, go to sleep, wake up in the morning and rejoice. You’re welcome!

2.Medium Budget: Beauty Sleep Elixir, £47 (30ml), www.beutiskincare.com

the best anti-aging serums that deliver outstanding results that actually deliver outs
Credit: Beuti Skincare

If you’ve read some of my past posts, you may have seen this little beauty of a product pop up here and there. Seriously, this is one product I NEVER want to forget. It’s a favourite with the Duchess of Cambridge for a reason – it works like a dream. Combining 14 precious plant oils, this anti-inflamatory facial oil goes above and beyond.

Should you suffer from dry skin, simply use this for a week. There won’t be a smidge of evidence that dryness ever existed. I’ve learned that applying this with my Foreo ensures maximum efficacy of the ingredients. Try it – you will love! I have used this for years. Although results are meant to be limited (due to the fact that oil molecules cannot reach too far), the difference between using the oil (with my Foreo) and not using the oil is pretty remarkable.

3.Top-End of the Budget Spectrum: ESPA Replenishing Treatment Oil, £59 (30ml), www.espaskincare.com

the best facial oils for dry skin on every budget

Now, there are facial oils that reach the £100+ price tag – and yes, some of them are awesome. However, you do not need to go that far – and unless you are gifting someone a Christmas present or have bags of spare cash, why would you? I would consider ESPA’s Replenishing Treatment Oil to meet the high-end of luxury. If you are treating dry skin, using a facial oil will place you ahead of the game.

Using a facial oil like this one provides you with that crazy-good boost. Featuring an array of nourishing ingredients, that offer a wealth of benefits, this little bottle of bliss will tick every box. Think antioxidant, omega and vitamin-rich components. Vegan friendly and suitable for all skin types too!

Review Of Filorga Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkle Correction Cream

Fact – time marches on in a ruthless and uncontrollable fashion. Should we lie down and take whatever lines and wrinkles are thrown our way? Oh no. I have reviewed Filorga’s Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkle Correction Cream. This anti-aging formula offers hugely impressive results. Better yet, the outstanding moisturising cream is currently on offer. You can bag the 50ml jar for £20 less. Read on:

Filorga Time Filler, £41.54 (Was £62), www.lookfantastic.com

Review of Filorga Time-Filler Wrinkle Correction Cream
Credit: Filorga

Filorga is the 1st French aesthetic medicine laboratory. The company produces world-renowned injectable treatments and anti-aging products. Now, Filorga is globally recognised for its expertise. Subsequently, whenever I test Filorga skincare, I know I am in for a treat.

Firstly, be prepared to invest your time in a wrinkle correction cream. Dispel any thoughts of an instant fix for deeper wrinkles. However, used long-term, they are well worth the effort. Pick a good wrinkle correction product and use it over time. Soon, lines and wrinkles will appear reduced. After trying Filorga Time Filler Absolute Wrinkle Correction Cream, it is now my new skincare staple.

The formula includes some star ingredients. These are proven to dramatically benefit the skin. This amazing cream leaves no type of wrinkle unturned.

On application, the moisturiser feels creamy, yet lightweight. It is quickly absorbed into the skin where it gets to work. The included hyaluronic acid provides an instant plumping effect. In the background, other key components begin their purpose – encouraging skin elasticity and rejuvenation.

review of filorga time-filler wrinkle correction cream

Featuring:

A Tripeptide

This relaxes features without a Botox-like freeze.

A Collagen Boosting Peptide with Hyaluronic Acid

Secondly, the included peptide combined with NCTF gets to work. Its job is to target deeper and more stubborn little wrinkle blighters. The collagen-boosting peptide triggers your skin cells to press the accelerator pedal on collagen production. The results are firmer and more youthful skin. Meanwhile hyaluronic acid gets to work. Imagine a skincare superpower – it hydrates and plumps away pesky lines.

Peeling Effect Active Ingredient

Next, surface wrinkles and ‘micro-cracks’ on the skin are smoothed over.

A Plant Extract

Finally, expect exceptional benefits from the added active plant extract. This retains water and keeps moisture at an optimal level. Therefore, signs of dehydration and dryness wrinkles are greatly reduced.

Your skin feels smoother and oh-so-soft as a result. Expect a complexion transformation and some compliments. Love this!

The Filorga Time-Filler Cream will be a hit. For added benefits, try the Filorga Time-Filler Night Cream

Life-Changing Skincare Products That Defy Winter (And Make You Smile)

There’s no doubt about it – winter wrecks the skin. Now, is the time we really need life-changing skincare products that defy the effects of UK weather. Maybe my face isn’t so bad that people mistake it for a Halloween mask.  But I can tell you, it hasn’t looked its best of late. In fact, just today my son likened my skin to that of an elderly person (worse day ever!).

Sadly, harsh elements outdoors, followed by similarly damaging elements indoors mean your skin doesn’t get a break. For me, (and probably many of you too) my complexion is mirroring a combo of cold weather effects, insomnia and a huge dollop of stress. It’s incredible how just a week of not bothering and too much Red Bull can make you look like total crap! But, thanks to my son’s wily observations and the following super-duper products, these life-changing skincare ingredients worked their magic. Now, my complexion is back to its beautiful and not old radiant self. Phew!

Should you be going through a similar scenario, these skincare products will quickly change the picture back to one with a smile!

1. Vitamin C Serum Fragrance-Free £43 (20ml), www.ecooking.com

transformative skincare products that defy winter and make you smile
L A Beauty

We need ingredients we know will work and this serum ticks every box. Combining the clinically proven anti-aging components such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, the vegan-friendly serum delivers transformative results. Fine lines and hyperpigmentation are greatly reduced, and your skin receives some next-level protection. And thanks to the inclusion of glycerine and sodium PCA that offer massive moisture-retaining abilities, the transformation is complete!

2.Avant Harmonising Rose Quartz Revitalising and Firming Cream, £59.25, 50ml (Was £79), www.avant-skincare.com

skin transformative products that defy winter and make you smile
L A Beauty

This time of year, we need a great mask that means business. Should unsightly pores be an issue (let’s face it, when aren’t they?) this mask will go a long way to resolving the problem. However, it must be used religiously. Whilst the mask isn’t a magic wand, it does offer significant (but temporary) benefits.

The super creamy mask comes as a luxurious, thick texture loaded with those life-changing and weather-defying skincare ingredients. These include vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and rose. The rose provides a gentle (much-needed right now), yet effective exfoliation. The hyaluronic acid works on those lines, wrinkles and moisture absorption. Lastly, vitamin E supports the skin with super-power healing and protective abilities. Love, love, love!

3.Omorovicza Silver Skin Saviour, £69 (50ml), www.omorovocza.co.uk

transformative skincare products that defy winter and make you smile
L A Beauty

Omorovicza continues to be one of my all-time fave brands. This is the go-to weekly mask for those with age, blemish, stress and weather-related skin concerns. Silver is well-known for its immense antibacterial and healing qualities. Silver and niacinamide work in unison, overcoming all of the above annoyances with ease.

Niacinamide has been shown to be a great ingredient for tackling aging, breakouts, hydration, hyperpigmentation, whilst improving skin texture. The hero component (vitaminB3) even aids in the protection against free radical damage.

Also added to the specifically formulated mask are glycolic and salicylic acids. Together, they make light work of eradicating blemishes, returning your complexion to one of health and radiance.

The mask feels thick yet somehow velvety with a strong scent. Apply and leave on for about 10 minutes and then wash away. This treatment should only be used once per week. Those with sensitive skin should apply for 5 minutes. Increase the time accordingly if all goes well. The multi-tasking skin treatment is a true game-changer.
