if my Skin is tired...

‘I would use a hy­drat­ing mask, or if I’ve had a re­ally long day and I’m in my clinic, I’d put some hyaluronic acid on my skin and hop un­der my re­ju­ve­nat­ing LED light – this stim­u­lates the col­la­gen, hy­drates and makes my skin look no­tice­ably perkier.’ Dr Jus­tine Hex­tall

‘I swear by Al­pha-h Liq­uid Gold [£33.50]. I sweep it over my face twice a week be­fore bed, then when I wake up my skin hon­estly looks brighter and tighter. I also ap­ply an oil to re­ally hy­drate af­ter I’ve cleansed. Then, when I’m ready to do my make-up, I’ll mix a high­light­ing fluid like MAC Strobe Cream [£25] into my nor­mal mois­turiser to give my skin a real glow. Plus I try to drink more wa­ter, up my veg and steer away from quick-fix caf­feine – it’s much bet­ter to feed the skin from within than gulp down a gazil­lion flat whites.’ Michaella Bolder

if my Skin is red...

‘I look for ac­tive prod­ucts that are also sooth­ing. I love Tril­ogy Cer­ti­fied Or­ganic Rose­hip Oil [£19.50]. At night when your skin is re­ju­ve­nat­ing is a good time to sup­port it, so I use this then. In the long term, an­tiox­i­dants are great for re­duc­ing red­ness, so you can ap­ply a prod­uct like this and also take sup­ple­ments to sup­port skin from within and in­crease the in­take of them in your diet.’ Dr Jus­tine Hex­tall ‘Red patches tend to ap­pear when you’re tired or run-down. I use a tiny touch of steroid cream, like HC45 Hy­dro­cor­ti­sone Ac­etate Cream [£3.79], as it brings down the red­ness and calms the area.’ Michaella Bolder

if my Skin is dry...

‘I use Eau Ther­male Avène Xer­a­calm A.D Balm [£18.50] to calm and soothe dry skin. It’s proven to re­duce itch­ing and in­flam­ma­tion and it has spe­cial tech­nol­ogy in the for­mula that means it con­tains no preser­va­tives, so it’s a re­ally good prod­uct to use as I know it won’t cause fur­ther ir­ri­ta­tion.’ Dr Jus­tine Hex­tall ‘I sleep in Char­lotte Til­bury’s Magic Night Cream [£100] – it’s so hy­drat­ing. I also love Lu­cas’ Pa­paw Oint­ment [£6.95].’ Michaella Bolder
