TRADE CREAM FOR SERUM AT NIGHT

Woman & Home - - BEAUTY KNOW-HOW -

AMAZ­ING HOW A HAND­FUL OF 21ST-CEN­TURY SKIN EX­PERTS HAVE TURNED THEIR BACK ON FACE CREAM, ES­PE­CIALLY FOR THOSE WITH VERY DRY SKIN WHO REACH FOR A SU­PER RICH FOR­MULA. “THAT FI­NAL LAYER OF ‘EX­TER­NAL MOIS­TURE’ CAN PO­TEN­TIALLY MAKE DRY SKIN DRIER,” SAYS RENOWNED FA­CIAL­IST KATE KERR. “IT TRICKS THE SKIN INTO THINK­ING IT’S GOT PLENTY OF MOIS­TURE IN THE UP­PER LAY­ERS AND SO SHUTS DOWN THE SKIN’S IN­TER­NAL NAT­U­RAL MOIS­TUR­IS­ING MECH­A­NISM.” ALL THE MORE REA­SON TO PRO­VIDE NAT­U­RAL HY­DRA­TION AND SKIN SUP­PORT THROUGH A WELL-BAL­ANCED DIET RICH IN SKIN-LOV­ING PRO­TEINS, OMEGA 3 AND 6, VI­TA­MINS AND ES­SEN­TIAL FATTY ACIDS, WHICH EN­COUR­AGE BET­TER NAT­U­RAL OILS AND LIPIDS TO HELP HOLD OUR NAT­U­RAL MOIS­TURE LEV­ELS DEEP WITHIN THE SKIN.

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, USE YOUR HOL­I­DAY TO STEP DOWN FROM US­ING ANY RICH CREAMS AND BUMP UP ON A FEW ANTI-AGE­ING SERUMS IN­STEAD, WHICH AB­SORB DEEPLY, SUCH AS Sk­inCeu­ti­cals Serum 10, £67, A GREAT ALL-ROUND AN­TIOX­I­DANT, WITH THE H.A. (Hyaluronic Acid) In­ten­si­fier, £88, TO HELP RE­IN­FORCE THE SKIN’S NAT­U­RAL MOIS­TURE LEV­ELS FROM WITHIN. GIVE IT TIME TO AD­JUST AND SEE IF YOU NO­TICE A DIF­FER­ENCE.
