Exfoliating is the key to a smooth and luminous complexion. Buff your skin’s outer layer to increase blood circulation and achieve a bright, even tone. Normal skin types should opt for a physical exfoliating treatment with natural ingredients like rose and olive pits, to instantly soften and improve hydration. For those with a more delicate complexion, opt for non-abrasive enzyme and gentle chemical peels to reveal your glowing skin.
Recover from the late nights of the festive party season by indulging your skin with a deep cleansing mask. It’s the fastest route to reenergised and brightened skin as it draws out impurities, leaving your face clear and balanced. Use a clay-based deep-cleansing mask twice a week to prevent unwanted spots from forming and, as skin texture improves, alternate it with a rich, hydrating mask to reap maximum benefits.
After all the indulgence of the holiday season, make it your New Year’s resolution to cleanse and refuel your body with plenty of skin-strengthening antioxidant nutrients. Green vegetables and colourful berries are detoxifying dreams; vitamin B protects and cleanses your liver, while reducing inflammation. If you are to stick to one resolution this year make it a commitment to hydrate from the inside out. Start your day with hot water with a slice of lemon. Opt for green and white tea throughout the day and your skin will thank you for it.
