Beauty Basics - How to create a winter glow

  • Ali

As winter sets in our skin comes under more and more stress, cold weather, harsh chemicals, daily pollution and air conditioning or central heating, all play their part in how we look and the ageing process.

So how can we help and what are the latest skincare innovations you need to keep abreast of?

Never A Dull Moment 

Restoring a youthful glow is everyone’s priority but there’s no point soaking clogged pores or flaky skin in expensive serums, oils or creams, as they simply won’t be able to penetrate through the debris. 

Retrieve your skin’s radiance with a daily exfoliator. I love this Prepwork Cleansing Polish with it’s exfoliants from lingonberry and apricot to gently

buff away dull surface skin cells, makeup and excess oil. It will leave your skin feeling fresh and looking brighter.

Massage it into your skin as part of your daily routine to enable the lingonberry and apricot to gently remove dead cells and stubborn impurities, leaving your complexion soft and smooth. This will ensure your skin is prepped for the rest of your routine and enable every subsequent ingredient you add to work more effectively.

Don’t Go Thirsty

If you’re on the brink of a skin SOS due to de-hydration then get your complexion back to a comfortable glow with the Bio Hydria Range. Diet, water intake,  stress, and environmental factors like weather, pollution and sun exposure all impact your skin’s hydration level and its overall healthy look. Plus internal factors like age, hormones and overall health can also take a toll on your skin.

The star ingredients in the Bio Hydria range are succulents, known for their water holding properties. Edulis Cellular Water enables skin to receive intensive, deep down hydration while pooling critical moisture within. Together with Aloe Vera, the products flood the skin with water, which is then absorbed like a sponge to trap the moisture in, reducing “dermal evaporation” and creating a plumped, hydrated complexion.

It seems this is consistently one of the most-searched-for skincare terms. Rejuvenation is a complexion goal that’s notoriously difficult to achieve. RE9 Serum takes it’s lead from deep in the world of science to find a solution creating radiant, firm, smooth and hydrated skin.  

Using sustainable orange stem cells along with stabilised vitamin C and botanicals including brown algae extract, sea buckthorn ceramide and peptides  this formula replenishes the skin’s moisture, creates smoothness and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as

improving the appearance of your skin’s tone, firmness, and suppleness.

Lift And Firm

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, vital ingredients that keep it firm and supple. 

Products specifically designed for the delicate eye area tend to be lighter and more complex – roll on RE9 Advanced lifting and contouring eye cream. This next generation hydrating formula supports your skin’s natural collagen and elastin. Fine lines look tighter and firmer while skin looks revived and renewed.

Just a quarter of a pump is enough to surround the delicate eye area applying it around the orbital bone to produce lifting and contouring above and below your eyes. Using a unique proprietary lifting and contouring complex  that includes Peony root extract, Algae extract and tri-peptides it’s designed to target skin tone and firmness by supporting collagen and elastin. It also contains Vitamin C and algae extract, Sea buckthorn oil, Olive fruit oil and cassava. It’s a botanical gourmet meal for the skin.
