Many of us have had to abandon our normal skincare routines. We say take advantage of your home isolation and start going bare.
Try these regenerative skincare products to give your face and body a new lease of life.
Add a little radiance to your day
The St. Moriz Advanced Radiant Glow Face Mist has a streak-free formula that is packed with vitamin E and aloe vera. Leaving your face beautifully bronzed, glowing, and hydrated. This works well without makeup, giving you that natural “just back from Europe” look.
Exfoliate your body and your face
Sample life in the slow lane with Cowshed’s Lazy Soothing Shower Scrub. Sleep-promoting essential oils of chamomile, jasmine and sandalwood are offset by amber and almond particles to gently exfoliate your skin. Use for rough bumps on the outer arm and any flaky areas — apply to your legs between shaving to keep dryness and flecks at bay.
Say goodbye to those unwanted hairs
We might not be able to soak up the sunshine and its lightening benefits, but we do have Jolen.
Use on clean, dry skin to prevent the oiliness in moisturisers and make up creating a barrier between the hair and the crème bleach. “After application the treated area should also not be exposed to sunlight for 24 hours,” advices Danielle Hudson, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Jolen Expert. Perfect for unwelcome hairs on the face and for lightening arm hair.
Channel days at the beach
Detoxify and brighten your skin with the travel-sized Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask from Oliver Bonas. Its formula designed to tighten pores, invigorate a dull complexion and boost radiance.
Formulated with Australian pink clay that acts as a magnet for toxins to detoxify the skin, and Australian botanicals to stimulate cell production, tackle pigmentation clusters, soothe irritation and boost collagen production, this mask aims to refine the skin to leave you with a clear, even complexion.
Smells that are good enough to eat
Part of the Beaute de Cacao line from Hotel Chocolate, the Cacao and Kaolin Thermal Clay Body Mask is rich in Cacao butter and macadamia seed oil to soften skin. The self-heating kaolin clay revitalises circulation for a healthy glow. Apply from neck to toe, massage as heat intensifies, then step into rainforest shower. Reveal island-ready skin.
According to the skincare experts at Superdrug, it’s good to go bare-skinned as it gives your pores the chance to breathe — clogged pores are the main cause of skin imperfections such as blemishes or spots. See their isolation essentials here.
