...is the new face for our beauty page. Deborah, beauty buyer for Jarrold, has some top skin tips for you.
AS we head towards winter it’s time to invest in the products that will give your skin some extra TLC.
Let the battle commence! I’m not talking Game of Thrones or
Poldark, this is an ongoing battle with making sure your skin is fully moisturised. Autumn can make this battle more intensive; temperatures drop, days become darker and the air becomes drier. Add putting the central heating on into the mix, and you have a fight that favours the other side.
And, let’s face it, your skin might not be in a good position to begin with. Summer with its sun, chlorine and saltwater dries out your skin, dulling your complexion. It’s time to implement a different strategy.
Luckily the new season has delivered a range of skincare products to help you bolster your arsenal. From intensive masks and exfoliators, to serums and beauty elixirs, a few of these newbies have derived from the sea, coast and nature. Here are your five moisture boosting saviours this autumn and winter… Originally designed as a 10 minute unisex facial in 1 a jar for professional use backstage in Hollywood’s entertainment, music and fashion industries, Glamglow is taking the world – and Instagram – by storm with its range of mud masks, some of which are metallic.
