Out Damn Spot
Maskne is affecting everyone and my top tip is to apply a salicylic acid overnight to any annoying bumps or spots. This beta hydroxy acid dissolves in oil so it gets into clogged pores to clear things up quickly. Try Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Gel (works just as well on body breakouts and ingrown hairs too).
Colder weather means less moisture in the air so your skin will feel tighter. The key is to get water back into your skin by adding humectants into your skin care. Look for something like L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid or the brilliant Hada Labo Gold Premium in the yellow/gold packaging. Apply straight after cleansing and then lock in with your normal skincare. Buy now
Always choose an unscented hand sanitiser. Use Le Roche Posay and then at night slather on a urea rich hand cream. Try Eucerin for the best value urea range, their Intensive Urea 10% Lotion is brilliant all over your body. Buy now
Grey, pallid and ashy skin is a sign to exfoliate but as the weather is harsh go slow for the glow. I love lactic acid left on overnight – it’s derived from milk, is gentle and hydrating and exfoliates away the dead, grey skin cells. Try Superdrug Me+ Lactic Acid at night and top with your usual night creams and you’ll wake to glowing skin and your makeup will sit better. Buy now
Don’t Be So Sensitive
If redness and sensitivity are your winter bugbears try La Roche Posay Dermallergo Serum, a hyaluronic acid with added peptides (protein building blocks) to specifically calm redness, and look for Rosalique 3-1 SPf50, a brilliant green tinted spf that is super light weight, loaded with calming ingredients and counteracts with a golden tint that works on all skin tones Buy now
