You might be fed up of breaking out, or, perhaps, it’s the fact that your skin’s dehydration levels are causing your complexion to act out of turn. At this time of year, skin knows no boundaries, and no, it’s not just down to the fact that you ate too many mince pies over the Christmas break.
Right now, routine can be a distant memory for some. This blurry period between the end of Christmas and the start of the New Year can throw you all out of flux, but don’t let it do the same to your skin. Here’s how to beat the lull and make your skin the best it’s ever been…
Refine & Renew
If you don’t exfoliate regularly, your current skincare set up can a complete waste of time (as you could well be just moisturising dead skin). Start by introducing a weekly exfoliator into your routine, just like PAYOT’s Melting Exfoliating Gel.
Without abrasive particles, the luxurious, gel-oil texture of this gentle but effective PAYOT exfoliator refines skin. How? It uses the combination of natural enzyme AHAs to buff away dead skin cells and dry patches for a smooth, soft finish that paves the way for radiant results in minutes; while making your current routine even more effective!
Give Yourself A Glow Up
Is your skin feeling fatigued? It’s easy to fight the effects of dullness and dehydration with Vichy’s latest launch: LiftActiv Hyalu Mask. Packed with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, an injection-strength dose of 1% to be precise. In only 5 minutes, this skin rebooting treatment evens out your skin, smoothing away any roughness or dull tones – it’s the perfect quick fix!
The Bright ‘Eye’dea
From the age of 25, our collagen levels start to dip; therefore lines begin to form. With under and around the eyes being the most delicate and thin, this area tends to show fatigue, tiredness and ageing first, that’s why it’s essential to include an eye cream in your everyday routine.
Eucerin’s Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream uses the tiniest hyaluronic acid particles to penetrate and plump out the formation of deep wrinkles. Another benefit? The fact it has the daily bonus of SPF15 to protect your eye contour from pollution and other harmful particles that want to disrupt your skin’s overall radiance.
Your Daily Dose of Repair
Without switching up your whole routine, the Hyalu B5 serum will be just what your complexion needs to feel just as good as it looks. A reparative tonic for anyone and everyone that feels their just not getting the results that they want, this powerhouse serum transforms the texture of your skin in only one day.
To keep your skin looking fresh, the combination of vitamin B5 stimulates your skin’s repair process. Madecassoside is what kick’s your collagen synthesis into whack for a firmer, bouncier finish. To top it all off, the molecule of the moment, hyaluronic acid drip feeds your skin, providing adequate moisture all day long.

Distress & Detox
Facial oils are the best all-rounders for achieving gorgeous, glowing skin overnight. Typically blended from natural ingredients or repairing fatty acids, in just a few drops, your skin will reap the benefits of protection from free radicals, alongside re-densified texture and beautiful clarity.
The multi-award winning Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is a cult-favourite dry oil that transforms skin (and hair!), particularly over-indulged complexions and stressed-out skin types that are in need of a boost. Blended with seven natural oils and the popular antioxidant, vitamin E, this oil can’t do any wrong, just take a look at all of its 5-star reviews on site!

3) Workout without makeup on
Simple, but super effective!
4) Keep your routine simple
Less is always more.
5) You are what you eat
Be sure to include lots of green vegetables, carrots and omega 3-rich fish in your diet to help boost your collagen production.
