Mask it up

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

Other than keeping up a healthy H2O intake, the next best thing to treat dull or dry skin in these colder months is to pick a great moisturiser to become your best friend. If no other steps in your routine stick except one, make it your moisturiser and repeat twice daily for optimum results.

Super serum

Serums are packed full of either natural or high-tech ingredients to target the overall health of your skin. Best used under your moisturiser morning and night, serums do wonderful things such as improving skin tone and luminosity to ensure you keep a glow all winter long.

Before your eyes pop out at the price of the La Mer serum, we can assure you it’s worth every cent. This little serum superstar is simply a saviour for the skin, as the concentrate complements the skin’s natural healing process with the restorative power of the sea. We couldn’t recommend it enough!

Be kind to those eyes

Some say that eyes are the windows to our soul, which means they deserve some pampering and protection too! There’s nothing worse than waking up early on a cold July morning to dry, tired eyes so here’s the best eye cream to keep them fresh and alert – ready to see your way through any of life’s obstacles, even a blizzard!

Prime every time

To maintain a dewy appearance and prevent that flaky foundation look, your go-to product is the primer. The primer is designed to layer on top of your moisturiser and work with your foundation, to provide the professional makeup application look that will last you all day long. Once a secret tool of celebrity makeup artists, Primers have now become a staple in every cosmetic bag.
