With the fast-paced lifestyle of inner city living, it can be easy to let your skin care regime slip. Here’s how to take care of your skin.

Whether you work in an office or are always outdoors, up early or late to bed, our specially designed skin care plan will help get your skin back on track.

The early bird

Arriving at the office for 9am can seem a struggle at the best of times, especially when you’re contending with trains, tourists and torrential rain. But even if you get to work delayed and drenched, ensure that your skin is nothing but glowing by following these three simple steps:

1 Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Begin your morning regime with the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser. This two-step cleanser removes traces of make-up and dead skin cells for smoother, clearer skin.

2 Neal's Yard Frankincense Facial Oil

Forget those dry skin days and follow with the Neal's Yard Frankincense Facial Oil for up to 12 hour moisturisation. Apply this oil after cleansing using a massaging motion to reveal radiant and revitalised skin.

3 Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream

Complete your morning routine with Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream. Its stress-relieving properties will prepare you for the day ahead.

The social butterfly

Burning the candle at both ends? If you like to go out, it's possible that your skin is suffering the consequences of all those late nights. Bring it back to life with this trio of fatigue fighters:

1 Decléor Aroma Lisse 2-in-1 Dark Circle & Eye Wrinkle Eraser

Rub out the sins of the previous night with the Decléor Aroma Lisse 2-in-1 Dark Circle & Eye Wrinkle Eraser. The unique gel-like texture contains yellow pigments to combat dark circles.

2 Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Rehydrate moisture deprived skin with the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. It will plump and soften, leaving your skin feeling instantly refreshed.

3 Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer

Complete your post-party recovery with the Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer which, when applied to cheeks, creates a healthy glow.

The fitness fanatic

Keeping fit is an important part of many busy girls’ lifestyles, but whilst exercise and eating well are great for your health, it’s also vital that you pay attention to your skin after hitting the gym.

1 Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Remove dirt and sweat after a workout with the JAPONESQUE® Pro Makeup Artist Wipes. These handy wipes come individually packaged so are great for storing in your gym bag.

2 Neal's Yard Frankincense Facial Oil

A quick splash of Clinique Exfoliating Scrub will leave you feeling fresh after working up a sweat.

3 Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream

Keep a tube of Murad Oil-Control Mattifier close by, especially when exercising outdoors as the SPF15 will help to protect your skin.
