Skin saviours

It's difficult to update our daily skincare regime; we may be anxious that a slight change in routine or product may cause an uneven complexion or worse, a nasty break out. But, as with our wardrobe, it's important to refresh skincare products from time to time to suit our age, season and environment.

Clinique's Moisture Surge CC crea

Perfect

An even complexion leads to youthful-looking skin. Banish the appearance of hyper pigmentation with a CC cream to 'colour correct' your skin tone and provide seamless coverage. Clinique's Moisture Surge CC cream is an oil-free formula, great for sensitive and oily skin. It's ideal for summer, when you're looking for more lightweight cover.

Elemis toner

Brighten

I admit I've only recently started using a toner as I always thought toning was an unnecessary step. This was until I tried an Elemis toner. These remove the impurities and tiny traces of make-up missed from cleansing, but also leave your skin feeling revived and brighter. Choose to suit your skin type from combination, dry and mature to sensitive and hormonal skin.

Protect

Protect

A golden rule for all skin types is to keep your skin shielded and nourished from harmful UV exposure by using a daily SPF moisturiser to prevent and reduce long-term damage such as premature ageing, sunburn and most importantly, skin cancer. Apply this all year round to avoid getting caught short by the day's unexpected rays whatever the season. Bliss Fabulous Face Lotion provides SPF15 daily defence from UVA and UVB. Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection Milk gives you a higher SPF 40, but with a surprising weightless finish that still protects.

Ole Hendriksen's African Red Tea Facial Mist Spray

Hydrate

We know it's wise to tackle dryness with a dab of moisturiser morning and night but during the day, a fuss-free solution to hydration concerns is a tonic spray. Simply spritz and go using an energising facial mist like Ole Hendriksen's African Red Tea Facial Mist Spray. This hydrating and fragrant pick-me-up will feed your skin all day long
(even over make-up).

Philosophy's Miracle Worker Anti-Ageing Retinoid Eye Repair

Soothe

Environmental pollutants can be harsh on the skin, especially around the eyes. Once you hit your 30s, it's time to start investing in some eye cream to protect the skin and fight the fine lines. A miracle worker is Philosophy's Miracle Worker Anti-Ageing Retinoid Eye Repair. This silky, wrinkle-busting cream will help smooth your under-eye area and reduce
dark circles.

Stylist tip:

It's easy to stick with same old same old, but it's best to update your products and routine to reflect changes in your life, giving your skin a healthy variety of treatments to revitalise your complexion
