Swap your cleanser for an oil
Cleansing your face with oil may seem a bit bonkers if you’ve never done it before, but it really is the most effective way to dissolve make-up (even waterproof mascara) and grime without stripping moisture from the skin.
Add an extra-hydrating skin boost
A dull complexion that won’t go away even with the brightest blush has a likely cause: dehydration. Introducing a hydrating product to your everyday regime is a super-simple way to keep your complexion hydrated from the inside out.
Introduce a serum
Whether you’re looking to even skin tone, reduce fine lines, brighten, firm or even get rid of dark spots, a serum will make the biggest difference to the way your face looks and feels.
Try a weekly peel
The combination of five powerful yet gentle acids will rapidly lighten dark spots and stop any impending spots in their tracks – all without freaking your skin out. After just a few weeks, you’ll notice your skin looking brighter, clearer and just all-round glowier.
Make sun screen an essential
Women are on an eternal quest to find the best anti-ageing products and they’re always amazed when they hear the truth: the secret is using sunscreen every day.
Swap your hand cream for a balm
Not only is it one of the richest and most nourishing treatments we’ve tried, but it also absorbs almost instantly and leaves no greasy residue.
Sleep it off with a scrub
This Laura Mercier scrub appeals to two opposing senses – its choppy, sugary texture is invigorating, while its buttery finish is soothing.
Swap your night cream for a mask
Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair collection is – put simply – beauty royalty. These new eye masks offer a concentrated, fast-acting hit of hydration and nourishment to tired eyes that need perking up quickly.
A weekly hair repair boost
So many people reach for hydrating haircare when they see dead, dry ends, but actually a strengthening boost may be just what your hair needs.
Switch wrist spritz for hair spritz
One of the most powerful ways to share your favourite fragrance is for someone to detect it in your hair.
