Sober up your skin
Feel as fresh as a daisy with our top beauty picks
These six products are not only our favourites for this year, but are exactly what your skin needs to help fight the sun, humidity and possibly the dehydrating effects of a big party weekend. Here's all you need to know (and do).
1. Freshen up in the shower with Ryn’s Bali Lush Body Wash (B950). The coconut oil and Vitamin E nourishes and hydrates the skin while the fragrant aroma of bergamot and frangipani does plenty to soothe and uplift your mood.
2. Scrub it nice and scrub it good. Rid your skin of dead skin cells and ingrained dirt with HARNN’s Tropical Wood Sugar & Coffee Refiner (B1,590) which combines sea salt, sugar beads, grounded Arabica coffee beans and shea butter to create a natural emollient scrub that helps restore moisture and exfoliates without drying the skin. Say ‘goodbye’ to cellulite and ‘hello’ to radiant skin.
3 & 4. Wash & Tone. If it’s anything you need to stock up on, it’s these two bottles that are going to make a huge difference to your skin. Start with applying Story Seoul’s Purifying Cleansing Foam (B915) which will gently cleanse the skin by removing make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and pollutants. Then use a cotton pad and apply the Calming and Revitalizing Toner (B1,300). Story Seoul’s range of products are formulated by dermatologists with all-natural ingredients and are 100% free from harmful additives. Tightens pores, smooths the skin’s texture and balances pH level, need we say more?
5. Wear a mask. Sleeping in an air conditioned room dehydrates the skin more than you realise so use
Origins’ Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask (B1,450) and you can put all your facial worries behind you. It uses the natural power of avocado and apricot kernel oil to quench your skin’s thirst and prevent further dehydration. There’s no need to wash it off either. Cheers to tighter, smoother and healthier skin.
6. Protect yourself from the sun and harmful pollution with Thann’s Nano Shiso Facial Sunscreen SPF30 PA+++ (B1,000). This natural oil-free formula spreads easily with quick absorption. White tea extract helps rejuvenate the skin by aiding in collagen production, while the nano shiso extract reduces skin irritation from sun exposure. This non-greasy miracle is a must-have and works perfectly as an under layer to your foundation.
