11. Sk­inceu­ti­cals Gen­tle Cleanser Cream, £31I like my morn­ing rou­tine to be quick so I use this while I’m in the shower and rinse it off as I wash my hair. It doesn’t dry out the skin and has a re­ally fresh scent, which is great for first thing in the morn­ing. I don’t like heav­ily per­fumed prod­ucts.2 32. Sk­inceu­ti­cals C E Ferulic, £135 The cock­tail of in­gre­di­ents in this serum – vi­ta­mins C and E and ferulic acid – neu­tralise the ef­fects of pol­lu­tion and sun ex­po­sure and help fight pig­men­ta­tion. I ap­ply three drops to the palm of my hand and press it on to my face and neck. 3. Lancôme Hy­dra Zen Anti-stress Mois­tur­is­ing Cream-gel, £41 This day cream is ab­so­lutely bril­liant if you’re prone to break­outs like I am. The tex­ture is in­cred­i­bly light and it feels re­ally lovely and cool­ing on the skin. A lit­tle goes a long way.4 54. Kiehl’s Ul­tra Fa­cial Cleanser, £16.50I like to keep things sim­ple at night, too, so hav­ing prod­ucts that mul­ti­task in my arse­nal is key. This cleanses my skin so well, I don’t need to use a ded­i­cated make-up re­mover. A foam­ing for­mula elim­i­nates the need for a toner, too. 5. Kiehl’s Mid­night Re­cov­ery Con­cen­trate, £38 Two drops of this ev­ery night smooths skin tex­ture and boosts ra­di­ance in the same way as a retinol, but it uses nat­u­ral botan­i­cals to break down pig­men­ta­tion and iron out fine lines. The laven­der scent helps me sleep, too. Neostrata Triple Firm­ing Neck Cream, £42I’ve started to no­tice my neck be­com­ing a lit­tle crêpey in my for­ties so I use this ev­ery night, ap­ply­ing it in firm up­wards mo­tions to lift ev­ery­thing. It’s a tough area to tar­get so it pays to start us­ing neck prod­ucts sooner rather than later. 6.6
