From family gatherings to festive nights out with friends, we all want to look and feel our best for the party season, which means it’s really important to up our game when it comes to our skincare routine. While the correct formulations and botanicals are vital for helping us to reveal radiant skin, the way you apply them is of equal importance. With that in mind, here are my top tips for acing your application.
A 360⁰ approach
When it comes to prepping your peepers, the eye area must be treated with delicacy and precision. Using Superskin™ Eye Cream, apply a pea-sized amount evenly between the tips of your middle fingers. Next, tap the cream in a circular motion, starting at the outer corner of your eye, moving under the eye and then over the orbital bone. Finish by smoothing outwards around the eye contours, using both your middle and ring finger. Repeat each move three times as this helps the cream to absorb.
Boost your body scrub
Whether you’ve bought a new party dress or a special top that’s sans sleeves, our Energising Body Scrub works wonders for helping to restore a healthy-looking glow from tip to toe. In order for this brilliant formula to really shine, application is key. First of all, make sure skin is damp but not wet, then massage a generous amount over the body using circular movements. I suggest starting from your ankles and working your way up – that way you won’t miss any spots, and when you rinse it off, skin will be left feeling soft and silky all over. Pay particular attention to upper arms, hips, thighs and feet to buff your way to brilliance!
Make your mask work magic
The party season tends to involve lots of late nights – but don’t panic if you’re struggling with skin that is showing the signs of fatigue. My wake-up warrior has to be the truly heroic Brightening Treatment Mask.* A fast-acting radiance fix formulated with camphor oil and toning witch hazel, it instantly revitalizes dull skin. Simply leave on for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before gently wiping away residue with a pure cotton cloth to reveal a gorgeous glow.
Power up your morning routine
Supercharging your daily routine can really help to fight the drying effects of the cold weather. Fine-tune your morning routine by incorporating Superskin™ Face Serum after you cleanse and tone, but before moisturising. To apply, dispense 1-2 pumps of the serum onto your fingertips and smooth over your entire face, then press into skin – and don’t be afraid to be firm, this will help with absorption.
Invest in a beauty sleep treat
Get the most out of your beauty sleep with a night-time nourisher. In the evening, bolster your routine by applying Superskin™ Concentrate for Night after cleansing and toning, but before moisturising. A rich, rebalancing blend of 100% pure plant oils that is suitable for all skin types, it helps restore balance to your complexion. Apply sparingly and massage into face and neck using upward and outward movements with firm pressure. Then, using your fingertips, lightly smooth in an outward circular direction along the cheekbones to above the eyebrows. Finish by gently sweeping your hands up the neck and over the décolletage.
