Our Ambassador Patricia Bright tells us everything about her new skincare resolutions and the products that will help her stick to this routine throughout the year.
Patricia's New Skincare Routine
"The beginning of a New Year gives rise to the opportunity to start fresh and reboot your life. Over the Christmas holiday, I will admit I was slightly slacking with looking after my skin but I am feeling really motivated to get my beauty, specifically my skincare routine, up to par.
Here’s what I’m incorporating to refresh my regimen:
No skincare routine is complete without a great cleanser, and with the colder weather nothing is better and more indulgent than the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. The gel-to-oil formula melts into your skin, leaving you with fresh, soft complexion.
The cleanser consists of a potent combination of enzyms and vitamins specifically designed for dull complexions. They work together to gently exfoliate the skin revealing a brighter appearance.
One of the best face masks I have ever used (this is a statement coming from a beauty addict like myself) is the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. It has easily become a hero product in my routine - with a light clay formula, it works to remove impurities, clear up blemishes and add an instant luminosity to the skin.
For a long time I had given up on clay masks, because they are such a hassle to use but this Caudalie mask washes off easily meaning that I don't have to tug at my skin. This product is packed with natural Grape Marc, an antioxidant that works to exfoliate and refresh the skin.
Something I never do is use an eye cream, but with every passing year I definitely need to get into the habit of it. 2017 is the year I have decided to kick-start. A good eye care product is vital to maintaining under-eye health.
The Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream is enriched with Vitamin C and Kiwifruit, which brightens darkness and combats discolouration. It also contains Carrot Seed Oil, Aloe Gel and 100% Pure Avocado Oil to protect against dehydration and keep the area as smooth and hydrated as possible.
The light and easily-absorbed texture allows your concealer to sit and last well on top, making it the perfect addition to your morning as well as your evening skincare routine.
I'm newly converted to the powers of a good facial mist. The Triple Oxygen Radiance Restoring Face Mist from Bliss is amazing! A quick spritz leaves your skin simultaneously refreshed, energised and hydrated. The formula contains Vitamin C, Cucumber and Cruciferous Extract that brighten up and smooth your skin.
My goal for the year is to actually stick to my refreshed beauty routine and by the end, have my skin in such top, youthful condition that they’ll be checking my ID to watch films at the cinema!"
