Beauty powders are pretty new on the skincare scene, yet they’re already fast becoming some of our favourite products.
Not only are they incredibly handy when travelling (as they are free from liquid), they contain potent actives, which when mixed with water form a powerful foam.
There’s lots of beauty powders to choose from depending on what you want them to do, but here are some of our favourites that are brilliant for all skin types.
Vitamin C powder
One of the most powerful antioxidants in skincare, Vitamin C is great for brightening dulling skin tones and reducing the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Philosophy’s Turbo Booster Vitamin C Powder comes from cult brand Philosophy, and is a potent and topical form of Vitamin C which can either be used on its own or mixed with a water-based moisturiser. With a 99.8% concentration of Vitamin C, the powder helps to neutralise free radicals and shield the skin against powerful aggressors. If you suffer from skin sensitivity don’t worry, it contains camellia oil, which soothes and moisturises dehydrated skin.
If you prefer to get your daily dose of Vitamin C through your cleanser, you will Clinique’s Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser. Made with pure Vitamin C, which activates when mixed with water, the cleanser purifies, refines and visibly brightens the complexion.
