A Rested Glow

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Looks -

HOW TO GET IT It’s one of the busiest times of the year, and chances of look­ing well rested are slim. But for a speedy skin boost, acid-based ex­fo­lia­tors should be in your arse­nal. Used af­ter cleans­ing, Dr Dennis Gross Al­pha Beta Ul­tra Gen­tle Daily Peel Pads, £83 for 30 treat­ments, won’t ir­ri­tate even sen­si­tive com­plex­ions, while Ro­dial Gly­colic Booster Drops 10%, £75, can be mixed into your ex­ist­ing skin­care. HOW TO KEEP IT To main­tain a glowing com­plex­ion in the long term, pro­tect­ing the skin’s outer bar­rier is es­sen­tial – build­ing up its re­silience will help it to cope with sea­sonal ex­cess, even when sleep is in short supply. Gen­tle, non-foam­ing for­mu­las rich in skin-plump­ing lipids – such as Elizabeth Ar­den Ad­vanced Ceramide Cap­sules Daily Youth Restor­ing Serum, £66 for 60 cap­sules – help keep the skin’s bar­rier func­tion­ing nor­mally. ‘Also get into the habit of mas­sag­ing a fa­cial oil into skin ev­ery evening,’ says fa­cial­ist Michaella Bolder. ‘This boosts cir­cu­la­tion and keeps the mus­cles in your face toned. Even 60 sec­onds will make a dif­fer­ence.’ We like Her­bi­vore Phoenix Re­gen­er­at­ing Fa­cial Oil, £74.
