Step This Way For Younger Looking Skin
Posted by Stephanie Orr in Skin Care
The importance of practicing a good anti ageing routine and wearing an obligatory daily dose of SPF is something I preach a lot here at My Beauty Matches, and now that we are fast approaching the height of summer my infatuation for skin care and the significance behind preserving my youthful barrier is greater than ever before.
Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse
Start by applying a light cleanser to brighten your skin and encourage cell nourishment levels. I like Elemental Herbology’s Vital Cleanse, £29 which is infused with Manuka Honey, Vitamin C, Seaweed, Papaya Extract and Green Tea to revitalise skin and provide an antioxidant barrier which helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and environmental damage.
Elemis Pro - Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30
A daily dose of moisture and SPF is compulsory whatever the weather to protect your skin against dehydration, harmful rays and last but not least premature ageing. Elemis’s Pro - Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30, £82 is my current go - to day cream which has been designed to combat all of the above and reduce fine lines and wrinkles within 14 days. The extracts of Ginkgo Bioba, Chlorella and Padina Pavonica also make this sumptuously silky moisturiser one which is hard to put down.
Dr Russo Night Repair Exfoliating Cleanser
The temptation to fall into the trap of: “Oh, I’ll do it in the morning,” when faced with the tiresome chore of makeup removal becomes more and more easier after a long day, but after a day of wearing sunscreen or an evening of wearing makeup believe me when I say waiting until the morning is the last thing you want to do! Relieve the quest of your nightly cleansing routine easier for the warmer weather by using Dr Russo’s Night Repair Exfoliating Cleanser, £48 which includes micronized organic pearls, glycolic, azelaic, malic, citric and lactic acids to gently cleanse, exfoliate and promote cell renewal and collagen formation.
Clarins Double Serum
Serums are the secret to stunning skin and this one from Clarins is no exception. For a visibly rejuvenated glow in the morning layer on a generous dose of Clarins’ award winning Double Serum, £56 overnight, formulated with 20 botanical plant extracts which help to target anti ageing and improve skin texture, this is one serum you need to keep beside your bedside table.
Fillerina Eye & Lip Contour Cream
Paying particular attention to the eye and lip contour area is essential when trying to combat signs of premature ageing, I like Filerina’s Eye & Lip Contour Cream, £45 which is great for smoothing fine lines and targeting areas which need a restoring pick me up.
Lancôme Absolue Night Precious Cells Recovery Night Cream
I was once told that it’s what you apply to your skin overnight that really makes an impressionable impact with cell rejuvenation and the texture of your skin in the morning, but when it comes to finding the right night cream we are all aware that it isn’t always an easy task. Taking the my beauty matches quiz can help to take out the guesswork and provide you with free impartial personalised solutions, I’m currently using my trusty Lancôme Absolue Night Precious Cells Recovery Night Cream, £150 which is infused with French Rose Extract and Sweet Almond Oil to deeply nourish and revive my skin overnight.
