After a never-ending round of over-indulgence and one too many glasses of bubbly it’s no surprise that the stresses and strains of the festive period start to show on our skin. Recapture your radiance this January with these resolution essentials from Harvey Nichols Bristol.
I will remove my makeup every day
Beauty’s golden rule – take everything off at the end of every day. Don’t be tempted to go to bed with left over makeup still on, thinking you can remove it in the morning; those clogged pores create the ideal environment for an overnight breakout.
Pixi’s dual phase Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover, £24, effectively removes waterproof and longwearing makeup – it’s even gentle enough for the sensitive eye area.
I will add a serum to my skincare regime
Perfect for tackling fine lines and dehydration, serums deliver a potent shot of active ingredients directly into your skin which penetrate the epidermis to get to work. You can even add a few drops to your moisturiser or foundation to calm winter skin.
Sunday Riley’s A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum, £70, fights the signs of aging and improves the look of congested and UV damaged skin for a calmer, even-toned complexion.
I will indulge in a weekly mask
While your everyday cleansers and moisturisers keep the surface of your skin in good condition, blemish-busting masks are designed to penetrate deeper, helping draw out impurities, remove the build-up of dead cells and increase hydration.
La Mer’s The Brilliance Brightening Mask, £210, is a gentle, yet powerful two-step treatment to instantly brighten and soften skin, minimise pores and even out tone.
I will take care of my eyes
The delicate skin around your eyes can be the first to show signs of ageing so keeping them hydrated – especially during the colder months – is essential. Make sure you opt for a cream designed specifically to tackle this area.
Rodial’s Bee Venom Eye Cream, £135, delivers intense moisture, increased cell vitality and a plumper, more smoothed appearance while eliminating the appearance of dark circles.
I will focus on those signs of ageing
As the cold weather dries out our skin, it’s easy to spot wrinkles and fine lines; the ones that no amount of makeup can hide. Opt for an innovative anti-ageing formula that reduces the appearance of wrinkles while smoothing and plumping skin.
Sisley Sisleÿa Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate, £335, is packed with innovative vitamins and essential oils to restore radiance while reducing the appearance of dark spots.
