Deedee Dawson, the manager of beauty at John Lewis Cheadle, shares her best products and top tips for gorgeous skin...
PREPARING the skin is essential in combating the signs of ageing.
Here are some top tips and aids that will help you to defy the odds and turn back the hands of time:
ON the hands, it can be difficult to disguise the years, but Gatineau Age Benefit Anti-Ageing Hand Treatment, 50ml, £37, targets brown spots, wrinkles and dehydration, all in one
handy little bottle.
AS we age, skin can lose elasticity, particularly around the neck and bust.
Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Neck and Bust Lifting Treatment, £73, lifts and firms in these problem areas, giving your décolleté the boost it deserves.
ESTEE Lauder’s Re- Nutriv Ultra Radiance Lifting Creme Makeup, SPF15, £75, is a great way of targeting those fine lines throughout the day and also provides coverage.
It has an indulgent creme soufflé formula, which plumps and hydrates the skin while lifting and firming to even out skin tone.
REPEATED sun exposure can really take its toll on your skin, so replace the harmful rays with a self tanning lotion to re-create your summer glow.
Sisley’s Super Soin Self-Tanning Hydrating Body Care, 150ml, £74.50, moisturises and bronzes and is visible from the first application.
REPLENISH moisture and keep dry hair at bay with Philip Kingsley’s Re-moisturising Conditioner, 250ml, £20.
Suitable for colour treated and chemically processed hair, it will leave hair soft and shiny giving it a revived, youthful feel.
PHYTO’S Phytovolume Actif Volumiser, 125ml, £17.50, helps with thinning hair, a common sign of age.
This protein-rich formula adds volume at the root, thickening each individual strand of hair to give an overall thicker appearance.
DECREASE the appearance of cellulite with Bliss Fat Girls Sleep Skin Firming Cream, 170.5g, £33.
Simply apply this anti-cellulite cream at night and allow it to work its magic.
TRY to get a minimum of eight hours of sleep per night.
The Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask, 50ml, £213 from La Prairie, refines and replenishes your skin while you sleep to help plump lines and enhance firmness.
DARK circles, loose skin and wrinkles are three of the ways that your eyes can be affected by poor sleep, dehydration and ageing.
Target them with the Re- Nutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye Lift from Estée Lauder 15ml, £95, which glides over the delicate eye area to reveal lifted and firmer skin.
AS we age, the delicate skin around the lips can wrinkle, and the lips can become thinner.
