SAV­ING FACE

The Herald Magazine - - CONTENTS -

THE sci­ence behind skin­care prod­ucts never stands still. Con­sider Re­Vive’s hy­drat­ing tinted skin veil that feels like oil but dries like vel­vet matte foun­da­tion on the skin, a trick that comes from Gre­gory Brown, a Har­vard-trained plas­tic and re­con­struc­tive sur­geon.

From Aus­tralia Al­pha-H comes a range renowned for its abil­ity to perfect trou­ble­some com­plex­ions. Michelle Do­herty founded the brand in re­sponse to her own bat­tle with adult on­set acne and its new­est serum is perfect for set­ting de­hy­drated skin back on track.

La Prairie’s new­est ad­di­tion is a day-and-night cream that in­hibits mus­cle ac­tiv­ity, mim­ick­ing the ef­fects of neu­ro­tox­ins such as Bo­tox.

If eyes are the gate­way to the soul then thank the lord for Dr Bar­bara Strum, who ad­vo­cates a no-non­sense re­sponse to skin­care, and her eye cream com­bines pow­er­ful nat­u­ral com­pounds and med­i­cal molec­u­lar sub­stances to as­sist skin re­gen­er­a­tion.

Fi­nally two cult favourites get an up­date – Elemis’s Day Cream now comes with a SPF and Liz Earle de­liv­ers the perfect power balm for plump­ing up de­hy­drated lips.
