Three beauty rules everyone needs to follow

It’s not too late to revise those lofty beauty resolutions and make them more achievable. If taking better care of your skin and getting your beauty regimen in tip-top shape is high on your priority list for 2017, take heed.

Get your vitamins
Forget about deciphering unpronounceable beauty ingredients – the building blocks of any good skincare are easy to get one’s tongue around! Vitamin A is the cornerstone of skin health, and remains one of the only scientifically proven ingredients that can slow the signs of ageing. Add vitamin C to the mix to restore radiance and reduce pigmentation.

Wear sunscreen every day
Don’t let those overcast autumnal days fool you – UV rays don’t have to be sizzling skin to be doing irreversible damage to both your skin and your DNA. Always end your usual skincare regimen with sunscreen to keep skin youthful for longer.

Master the basics
Fortunately the secret to great skin isn’t really a secret – nor is it overly complicated. Load up your diet with a rainbow of fresh vegetables and drink plenty of water and you’re halfway there. The rest lies in skincare basics – cleansing twice a day, exfoliating regularly according to your skin type and using skincare that targets your concerns.

Skincare must-haves that will get your skin glowing

Radiant, healthy skin starts with the right skincare. These STYLE approved must-haves will get your skin glowing in no time.

Elizabeth Arden PRO Illuminating Enzyme Mask, ($130)

“This is your all natural answer to a peel,” says Tracy May-Harriott, international director of education for Elizabeth Arden PRO. The mask contains three different digestive enzymes – pumpkin, papaya and pineapple – that dissolve dead skin cells, unlike chemical ingredients, which May-Harriott explains can also exfoliate living cells. As well as banish lacklustre complexions, anti-inflammatory ginger nourish skin. “What the other half of the mask does is really calm the skin; it repairs and hydrate to restore the skin after any sun damage. It’s really the best of both worlds.”

Bobbi Brown Remedies ($78 each)

The future of beauty is tailor-made to target individual concerns and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is ahead of the pack with innovative skincare creation, Remedies. “Remedies has been a long-time dream of mine,” says beauty guru Bobbi Brown. “I had this idea for a solution-oriented skincare apothecary that used only a few key ingredients and addressed specific skin concerns. Years later, as healthy living became a big part of my overall beauty philosophy, it seemed like the perfect time to make Remedies a reality,” she explains. To bring her vision to life, Brown teamed up with a traditional medicine practitioner and acupuncturist; the end result, explains Brown, is six considered skin treatments formulated with potent ingredients to combat any skin issue. “Think of them as superfoods for your face that work their magic underneath your makeup. They are truly the perfect fusion of beauty and wellness—it’s the ultimate skin enhancer.”

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Cleansing Oil ($65)

Despite the leaps and bounds the beauty industry has been making innovation wise, removing every trace of stubborn make-up has remained a challenge. Up until now that is; budge-proof mascara and water-proof formulations have finally their its match. Kiehl’s has answered all our beauty prayers with new Midnight Recovery Cleansing. The cleanser’s potent blend of nature’s best oils washes away the day – impurities, oil and make-up – prepping skin for the next step in your night regimen.

La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo, ($490)

Not all wrinkles are created equal, so purveyors of luxury skincare La Prairie have pioneered a formulation that targets three types of fine lines: expression lines, wrinkles caused by sun damage, and gravity-related lines. Designed to be used morning and evening, the dual-chambered Line Interception Power Duo combines two powerful formulations that work to restore youthfulness to skin right around the clock. A trio of peptides inhibit ageing pathways and encourage production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, reducing the formation of lines – and the formula is packed with an SPF30 to keep further sun damage at bay.
