1 A de­cent mois­turiser

De­hy­drated skin looks dull and dry, plus it loses its nat­u­ral bounce, so lines and wrin­kles look worse than they ac­tu­ally are. “Look for a good mois­turiser that in­cludes a blend of plant ac­tives, omegas and an­tiox­i­dants,” says fa­cial­ist and well­be­ing ex­pert Abi­gail James. “These will help keep the sur­face of your skin hy­drated and plump.” Im­proves the skin’s elas­tic­ity and plumps out deep wrin­kles with a com­bi­na­tion of an­tiox­i­dants and hyaluronic acid

3 Eye cream

If you some­times won­der whether you’re wast­ing money on cer­tain beauty prod­ucts, eye cream is one that’s worth the ex­tra spend. “The skin around the eyes is ten times finer than that on the rest of the face,” says Abi­gail. “It’s the most ex­pres­sive area, which means it’s also the first area that fine lines show up. An eye cream to plump this area is a must.” This light­weight eye cream con­tains an­tiox­i­dant white tea and has a high SPF 20. It’s great for bright­en­ing dark un­der eye cir­cles

2 Skin­care with SPF

Your face is con­stantly ex­posed to the el­e­ments, so it’s im­por­tant to pro­tect it all year round, but par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the sum­mer. “A high SPF ap­plied all over your face, dé­col­letage and back of the neck is vi­tal,” says Abi­gail. Stick to a cream with SPF that’s de­signed specif­i­cally for the face as this won’t clog your pores. As well as pro­vid­ing high UV pro­tec­tion, ac­ti­vates this ul­tra-light cream skin’s nat­u­ral de­fences the against pre­ma­ture age­ing

4 Night cream

A good night cream is more im­por­tant than you might think. Most of us want and need dif­fer­ent things from the mois­turiser we ap­ply in the morn­ing or be­fore bed. Day creams need to be light, be­cause they need to be pro­tec­tive against the el­e­ments. Night creams tend to be heav­ier, which means they can de­liver tar­geted in­gre­di­ents that work bet­ter away from day­light. Re­duces wrin­kles and re­tex­tures skin while you sleep. Con­tains retinol, which of­ten works best overnight
