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.
