Letting go with your diet is part and parcel of Christmas, but all that food and drink indulgence can play havoc on your waistline and complexion. Now we're at the start of a new year, it's time to put some goodness back into our skin and detox out that nastiness. We round up some products to help your face glow this January.
Mavala Skin Vitality Vitalizing Healthy Glow Serum – 4.5/good-skincare-routine-detox-tried-and-tested-products/5
Adding vitamin C to your day-to-day regime will give skin a real boost. I usually favour an oil formula, but this serum from Mavala has become a new favourite. The serum has a pearlescent sheen, which gave my skin a real glow and meant I could forgo highlighter. It's absorbs into the skin really quickly, so there is no waiting around for it to dry, and it instantly made my complexion appear fresh and hydrated.
Detox your skin after the festive period
Medik8 Retinol 1TR – 4/good-skincare-routine-detox-tried-and-tested-products/5
If you still haven't incorporated hero skin ingredient Retinol into your skincare routine, 2018 is the year you must! Retinol works at resurfacing the skin by prompting surface skin cells to turn over and die rapidly, making way for new cell growth underneath. This product from Medik8 is a great way to start using Retinol as it contains a low concentration, 0.1%, which is gentle to skin, but still delivers a smoother, plumper looking visage. Begin by using twice weekly, before building up to nightly use.
Starskin's 7-Second Morning Mask -5/good-skincare-routine-detox-tried-and-tested-products/5
Festive parties and busy days can take a toll on the skin. Thankfully, the geniuses at South Korean skincare company Starskin have come up with a great solution for instantly brightening skin. This container holds 20 dual sided pads - use the beaded side of the pad to gently exfoliate and the other to sweep serum onto the skin. The formula contains hyaluronic acid to soften and smooth complexion, and can also be used underneath make-up. Too easy!
