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
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
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
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.
