ACTIVE SKINCARE

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.


FOR DULLNESS

 

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.

 

FOR DRYNESS

 

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.

 

FOR BREAK-OUTS

 

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.
