There’s no time like spring to rethink your approach to beauty. To celebrate the arrival of warmer weather we’ve rounded up our favourite beauty buys for the season ahead.
While there are certain skin concerns that are more likely to strike at a certain age, healthy skin that glows is something all of us want. These skincare essentials will help you achieve a radiant complexion at any age.
Retinol (vitamin A) has long been touted as a hero of the skincare world. The star ingredient boosts cell turnover and supports the skin’s natural collagen elastin to fight the signs of ageing. Elizabeth Arden combines the best of both worlds with ceramide and retinol in new Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum ($162 for 60 â€“ on counter 24 September). Moisture-boosting ceramides protect skin from dryness and irritation that can occur with retinol products.
Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum (50ml, $191) is powered by probiotics and works on all skin types to enhance the skin’s signs of youth. The lightweight formulation improves radiance, elasticity, skin tone and smoothness.
Vitamin A isn’t the only free-radical-fighting vitamin you need in your skincare routine. Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum ($159) has been formulated with advanced skincare technology that allows more vitamin C to be delivered to the skin. The end result is a healthy, more even and bright complexion.
Hydrated skin is healthy skin, and Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly ($69) works right around the clock to provide 24-hour hydration. The unique water-jelly texture and oil-free formula glides onto skin and is perfect for warmer weather when skin can need a lighter moisturiser.
A good cleanser is the first step in any thorough beauty routine. Avocado oil and marigold bloom in Antipodes Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser ($46.90) remove the day’s impurities and make-up while nourishing skin.
