Francesca White

Spring is here, bringing brighter mornings, milder temperatures - and skin more susceptible to flare-ups, break-outs and other minor meltdowns (a change in weather will do that). Whether it’s sallow, sensitive or spot-prone, here are four products proven to get your skin back on its best behaviour.



DCL C Scape High Potency Night Booster 30, £108 at Space NK.


Lacklustre skin is no match for DCL C Scape High Potency Night Booster 30. The creamy serum contains a punchy blend of L-Ascorbic Acid (for skin brightening) and Vitamin C (for firming and smoothing). A few drops to clean skin, each night before bed, and you’ll wake up looking positively luminous. It also smells of oranges, which is cheering.




La Roche Posay, Hyalu B5 Serum, £37

 Hyalu B5 Serum is just the stuff for dry, dehydrated skin, delivers hydration in spades. The hyaluronic-acid-based formula works to plump the skin’s appearance whilst boosting moisture levels, and the feeling immediately after application is one of velvety smoothness. A few drops is all you’ll need, morning and night.




Zelens PHA+Bio Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads, £65

Whether skin is oily, congested or both, Zelens PHA+Bio Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads will help. The little discs are saturated with a combination of acids (Alpha hydroxy, Beta hydroxy and Polyxydroxy) which gently dissolve dead cells without stripping the skin. Swipe across your face after cleansing and you’ll feel a tingle – but a few days later, skin looks (and feels) so clean it squeaks.
