The cold, dry months are a real nightmare after Christmas. Winter is here and with it comes cracked and dry skin. And unfortunately it is not just winter that wreaks havoc on your skin — late nights, jet lag, smoking and pollution are just a number of things that can also affect your skin.
Luckily, Clarins, Dior, Selvedge and a few others are here to save the day with their skincare products.
Dior Prestige La Creme Texture Riche is as fancy as the name suggests. The rich texture comes from its 100 percent natural ingredients of mango butter, waxes and oils. Its ultra-rich balm texture instantly blends into the skin. An active anti-freeze ingredient has been infused into the formula to protect cells from the cold.
Clarins has reportedly spent 10 years researching how to help your skin fight the excesses of daily life. The result: three super-concentrated formulas for women to use daily, weekly or monthly.
Booster Energy has a ginseng extract to tone and re-energise your face and make you look as radiant as possible. Booster Repair is enriched with mimosa tenuiflora, a Mayan medicinal plant. This face booster helps to reduce discomfort, improve skin strength and minimise redness. The final member of the skincare trio, Booster Detox, comes with a green coffee extract to boost dull complexions and detoxify the skin.
La Prairie, the world renowned luxurious Swiss skincare expert, has the Platinum Collection, which, as the brand claims, is their best collection yet.
Cellular Cream Platinum helps to recharge your skin, increasing its absorption of nourishing ingredients. Climate-activated hydration releases moisture and the cream preserves skin texture and tone.
Serum Platinum Rare serum helps to maintain the skin’s balance by restoring moisture. A skin-brightening complex and potent antioxidants make the skin firmer, brighter and rejuvenated.
Jurlique is celebrating the upcoming Chinese New Year with its Iconic Rose Collection. Featuring Rosewater Balancing Mist and Rose Hand Cream, the gift set is only available for a limited time. The scented facial mist is infused with rose extracts to leave your skin refreshed, hydrated and renewed. The hand cream also features rose extracts.
And for the men, Selvedge Grooming Italy has a couple of products to help different skin types. Cleanse and Shave is a 2-in-1 antioxidant face wash and shaving cream. It comes with the masculine scent of bamboo extract, barbary fig extract, bisabolol and a number of others.
Sticking with the 2-in-1 approach, Hydrate & Protect is a lightweight moisturiser and aftershave. The gel restores essential nutrients and locks in moisture, while also minimising irritation and redness caused by shaving.
