‘This week I have decided to share with you the tips that I had to do for my skin after the weekend I had! My 30th birthday celebrations resulted in me having dehydrated, tired and dull looking skin which I guess you will agree is not a good look, so here are my super 7 miracle cure products, I know 7 may be a lot but there is never one answer to a problem.
1st – Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial (€45.00)
This is a 5 min exfoliating facial mask that gently resurfaces skin using multi level exfoliating for a smoother brighter and even toned appearance, it leaves skin looking luminous and radiant, use it just once a week. Everyone has 5 mins to spare to no excuse’s!
2nd – Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Oil
This is ideal for dehydrated tired looking skin it helps to restore radiance for a fresher looking appearance, it leaves the skin moisturised and satin soft, apply in the evening on its own or under your night cream, just use a few drops and apply with a tapping motion to the skin. I also decided to double up with my hydration creams by using Clinique Moisture Surge intense cream (€43.50) morning and night. I am a BIG believer in hydration cream. When your skin gets dehydrated you will develop a dull and even slightly wrinkled appearance to the skin, everyone should have a hydrating product in there press as everyone’s skin gets dehydrated. It’s that tight feeling that we sometimes think is dry skin, and it’s not.
3rd – Estee Lauder Idealist Coling Eye Illuminator (€55.00)
I was just introduced to this product last week and i cant believe that i never used ot before it is fab. It helps to reduces puffiness as it has a cooling effect when been applied since it has a cermaic tip applicator, it comes in to different shades the one that i am using is the light -medium when applied to the skin yu get a instant brighten effect, the product is so light that you dont see the product on the skin you just see the results and trust me this is one product once you use it you wil always keep it in your make up bag.
4th – Optrex Actimist Eye Spray (€18.17)
Apply this produst to closed eyelids for instant relief on irratated/dry and sore eyes, it helps to refresh and improve hydration, you can even spray it over make-up,i have noticed lately from using it that it has strenghtened and even improved the growth of my eyelashes.
5th – Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Serum (€70.00)
Apply in the morning under the moisture cream daily it helps to boost the proteins in the skin which are your youth activating genes, drop by drop your skin is re-illumnated an and let from with in.
6th – Berocca Boost (€9.99)
Okay, so I know that this is not a cosmetic product but it is like the perfect vitamin cocktail for your skin its full of vitamin B,C and essential minerals it helps to give you that boost and helps you stay in top form the day best takin in the morning so that you can make the most of your day.
7th – Clinique Uplighter
This is perfect to use on its on or with make-up it as a peach undertone which will suit all skin tones, apply to the apple’s of the cheeks and around the other cornors of the eye sockets. this wil immedately highlight your skin.
I would consider all of the above as essential star buys. They can be placed into any skin routine and are suitable for all skin types. Most of use keep hangover cures at hand such as Nurofen and Lifeline, but we never consider our skin. We wear it everyday and it is the first thing that people see, its kind of like that expression, ” First impressions are lasting impressions”, so every know and then we might need a little extra help to get the best out of our skin to help to infuse it with light, and look on the bright side!!!’
