7am Wake up

Wake up sleepy eyes and tackle puffiness with Clin­ique Pep Start Eye Cream, £22. Keep in the fridge for an ex­tra cool­ing ef­fect.

10pm sleep cy­cle

Your skin starts to re­pair it­self be­tween the hours of 11pm and 4am. Use Phi­los­o­phy’s Time In A Bot­tle Re­sist Re­new Re­pair Serum, £55, to give your com­plex­ion a help­ing hand.

7.30am Pol­lu­tion Pro­tect

Pol­lu­tion causes dull com­plex­ions and pre­ma­ture wrin­kles. Prime your skin with Clar­ins UV Plus Anti-pol­lu­tion Day Screen, £32, which fights the free rad­i­cals that speed up age­ing.

7pm Wash OFF

Cleanse your skin as soon as you get home to wash away the day’s grime, dirt and pol­lu­tion. L’oc­c­i­tane’s Per­fect­ing Pu­ri­fy­ing Foam, £19, is great for a deep-down clean.

4.30pm re­fresh

By late af­ter­noon, all that of­fice air-con might be mak­ing your skin feel tight and de­hy­drated. Spritz on El­iz­a­beth Ar­den’s Eight Hour Miracle Hy­drat­ing Mist, £21, for an in­stant hy­dra­tion boost.

11am top up Your SPF

The sun is at its most pow­er­ful be­tween 11am and pm. Give your skin an ex­tra dose of pro­tec­tion with Garnier Am­bre So­laire Sen­si­tive Ad­vanced Pro­tect­ing & Hy­drat­ing Face Mist, £10. You can spritz it over your make-up, so there’s no ex­cuse for skip­ping the SPF.

1pm Beat the Mid­day Melt

We’re all fa­mil­iar with that shiny T-zone come lunch. Com­bat ex­cess oil with Mu­rad’s Mat­tef­fect Blot­ting Per­fec­tor, £32, which ab­sorbs oil and min­imises pores – with­out leav­ing skin look­ing cakey or dry.
