It may only be the second month of the year, but that doesn’t mean that you haven’t had to put your nose to the grindstone already. Not only may your mind and body feel tired, but the skin on your face may have copped a beating, too. Tired-looking skin is generally dehydrated skin, which means the best thing you can do to reboot your complexion is give it a healthy dose of moisture. Here are five skin care products that are all about nourishing, plumping and restoring skin back to its radiant self.
Estée Lauder DayWear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant Moisture GelCreme
Tired-looking skin is often most prevalent around your eyes due to the skin being thinner there than the rest of your face. This is where Estée Lauder DayWear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant Moisture GelCreme comes in handy; it’s an airy eye cream that gives your eye area a potent top up of moisture. It features antioxidants and hydrating cucumber extract, and works to protect and brighten the area at the same time.
Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Renewing Dew Concentrate
Loaded with nourishing aloe vera and lots of antioxidants, Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Renewing Dew Concentrate effortlessly increases hydration levels in lacklustre skin and helps reverse any signs of dullness. What we love most about this product is the water-like texture, which quickly sinks in (making it a top choice even for oily skin types).
Lancôme Énergie de Vie Lotion
To improve the glow factor on your skin, try something like Lancôme Énergie de Vie Lotion, which can easily be added to an existing skin care regimen (use it straight after cleansing). Pop a few drops of this lightweight lotion - which feels just like an essence - onto a cotton pad or your fingers, and press the goji berry and vitamin E-rich product into your skin for a heavy dose of moisture.
Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Mask
With ingredients like blue marine algae and antarcticine (an ingredient harvested from Arctic glacial ice), the Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Mask promises to seriously hydrate and keep that hydration locked in the skin’s layers to keep dehydration at bay. Use this every couple of days to refresh your weary complexion.
Clarins Pore Control
When your skin is dehydrated, your pores can look enlarged and more prominent. Clarins Pore Control works in three ways - it can instantly blur the appearance of pores and make your skin look perfectly smooth (psst… it makes for a great makeup primer!); it works to inhibit excessive oil production through the day; and it can gently remove any dead skin cells and reveal a more radiant-looking complexion. Talk about a hardworking product!
If clogged pores are your main skin concern, then this is how you can prevent them from becoming blocked.
