Hi Gill!
Ah when does it ever end? I know just the product for you – it harnesses the power of an anti-blemish and firming agent all in one moisturiser! Firstly you need to add the Avene Triacneal Expert Emulsion into your routine, which was created especially for the adult acne market. The Diolenyl patent contains an anti-bacterial agent that cleverly purifies spot-causing bacteria whilst Retinaldehyde, a derivative of vitamin A, works as a shield for your skin to protect and defend your complexion from aggressors. It also has the added benefit of boosting your skin’s collagen fibres to reveal a more taut finish to your complexion. Finally, if you’re lazy with your skincare, you need the Avene Cleanance Micellar Water, which is a really efficient way to cleanse. Its micelle technology removes every trace of makeup and dirt whilst clearing up your complexion with its antibacterial formula.

Hi Sophie,
This has to be one of the most common questions we receive during the winter months and, oh, what a nightmare it can be! To re-hydrate your complexion we recommend Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum. Loved by beauty aficionados everywhere, including the very lovely Sali Hughes, this moisture infusing serum immerses your skin in a powerful blend of Activ Hyaluronine™, a combination of hyaluronic acid and lipidure to deliver a 48 hour hydration system to your complexion. For best results follow with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream to cocoon your skin in sumptuous moisture and comforting care.

Hi Laura,
Not to worry, we’re here to help! The Uriage Roseliane range is perfect to help soothe and calm any inflammations without irritating your sensitivity. Our customers love the Uriage Roseliane Anti-Redness Cream; its anti-flush formula limits and protects your skin’s vascular systems whilst replenishing and restoring your complexion’s barrier function. With added green particles to diffuse and blur any redness, the results are instantaneous! We also highly recommend the Uriage Roseliane Dermo-Cleansing Fluid to complete your regime, its soap-free formula is made up of 10% Uriage Thermal Water, calendula and mimosa, which blend beautifully to ensure you’re blushing for all of the right reasons after you cleanse.

Open pores ?

Chelsey says…

Hi Clare,
This was once the bane of my life too – but that’s  before I found the Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner Corrective Concentrate, a powerful pore perfecting treatment that works to tighten your pores with the powerful astringent Agaric Acid. To top that off, the Fluidactiv patent actually works to regulate your skin’s oil production, which means less blemishes  too – yay! As well as smoothing your complexion, this handy hydrator is packed full of antioxidants to shield and protect your skin from free radicals whilst enhancing your natural radiance. What a winner.

My concern for 2016 is that my skin would glow like a bride’s should! My wedding’s in October – eek!

Hi Hannah,
Congratulations on your special news, you must be over the moon! It sounds like the Darphin Vitalskin range was made for your concern. We like to think of it as being similar to a dose of Berocca for the complexion! Adding the Darphin Vitalskin Anti-Fatigue Dynamizing Serum into your routine will ensure your radiant glow lasts for 8 hours (enough to last for the complete duration of your big day!), and as it’s infused with brightening vitamin C and caffeine you cannot go wrong with this enlivening range. Follow with the Darphin Vitalskin Replumping Energic Cream for dryer skin and the Darphin Vitalskin Replumping Energic Emulsion for normal to combination skin types – good luck!

    I have a few brown spots on my face. I think from too much sun! I am using more sunscreen and want to know if there is anything else you would suggest? Thanks. Karla
