8. Try an acid
Don’t let the name put you off: alphahydroxy acids, like glycolic, lactic and citric, are all brilliant glow-givers. By chemically exfoliating the uppermost layers of skin, they work to reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion. Even better – by ridding your skin of dull, dead cells, your serums and creams will be able to penetrate deeper into the skin and work that much harder. VICHY Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel, R195, is gentle enough for everyday use to remove make-up and dirt while leaving skin soft and smooth.
