Coming into winter, our skin takes a battering from the elements resulting in dry, dehydrated and dull looking skin. I have come up with an incredible skin routine to help you scuff off the flakiness and brighten and tone your skin just in time for Christmas!
First of all, stay clear of the face wipes / baby wipes and invest in a skin type appropriate cleanser and toner. After your skin is thoroughly cleansed, I would strongly encourage you to try out Elizabeth Arden’s Superstart Skin Booster. It is the only product of its kind on the market, and is, in a nut shell, a probiotic for your skin. It works holistically to restore the healthy look of your skin’s essential surface layer, fortifying its natural ability to renew and repair.
Next, you should look for a “brightening” serum. I love Elizabeth Arden’s Illuminating Brightening Day serum because it has an encapsulated form of niacinamide combined with Vitamin C and their own mix complex which are proven to brighten skin, reduce pigmentation and support our skin’s collagen and elastin levels.
At night time, I would opt for a “glycolic” type product after you have removed your makeup. Be careful you don’t use too much though, as it can irritate your skin if you use too much! Elizabeth Arden’s Skin Illuminating Re-texturizing pads are great because you only need to use one single pad for your whole face and literally glide it once over the skin (avoiding the eyes obviously) and instantly it will lift off the surface layers of dead skin, revealing brighter skin.
For an added bonus, I’d try out Elizabeth Arden’s skin illuminating Night Capsules. They work with the original Ceramide Capsules, but deliver an intense supply of Mix Concentrate, Vitamin C and Niacinamide while you sleep!
