The importance of skincare is sometimes overlooked and is just as important for women as it is men, after all, we all have skin. So if you find the below recommendations helpful, please do share them with your friends, family, husbands and communities.
When thinking of organ health we generally think of the internal organs like our heart, lungs, liver etc and we overlook the largest organ of them all, our skin. We eat a certain way to protect our heart, our bones and our brain, and we should be giving the same attention to our skin.
In this post, I’ll be sharing some of my favourite products to keep my skin looking fresh, clean and glowy, because we should all be proud of our skin.
Lait VIP O₂ – Biologique Recherche
Lait VIP O₂ is a cleanser that I reach for time and time again, it’s perfect for those that live in highly polluted areas like cities, it features a compound which enhances oxygen delivery and therefore boosts cell renewal.
This cleanser will truly allow your skin to breathe in otherwise polluting environments which are often associated with skin ageing and inflammatory or allergic skin conditions.
Lotion P50 PIGM 400 – Biologique Recherche
This lotion is exfoliating and brightening that is ideal for dull complexions with hyperpigmentation and dark spots. The balancing and exfoliating lotion speeds up the epidermis’ natural exfoliating process and therefore, allows the epidermis to protect the skin and enhance the skin’s self-regeneration potential.
The exfoliation aspect of this lotion is thanks to a potent combination of AHA, BHA and PHA exfoliants: lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, salicylic acid and gluconolactone which all work as chemical exfoliators.
Crème Iso-Placenta – Biologique Recherche
Crème Iso-Placenta is the most magical, deeply regenerative cream out there, it works on repairing acne affected skin by increasing the level of antioxidants which encourage the production of collagen and increase blood flow to the area of imperfection. Due to its antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties it is also able to shield skin from the development of any future imperfections.
Crème Contour des Yeux Biosensible – Biologique Recherche
Crème Contour des Yeux Biosensible instantly relieves skin dryness while also reducing the appearance of dark circles by improving the skin’s microcirculation. The formula which is hypoallergenic and ophthalmologically tested, also helps to reduce fine lines and protects the skin against stress and other environmental factors.
Dr Barbara Sturm
Hyaluronic Serum – Dr Barbara Sturm
When it comes to anti-inflammatory, science-based active ingredients, Dr Barbara Sturm is an inspiring innovator within the industry. All of her products are of excellent quality, free of artificial fragrance, micro plastics and aggressive preservatives. The Hyaluronic Serum instantly hydrates your skin and is, in my opinion, the best you can get on the market. It works wonders. Not only does the Hyaluronic acid penetrate the top level of the skin, but it works on the deeper tissue to help ward away wrinkles and keep your skin looking younger.
Sun Drops SPF 50 – Dr Barbara Sturm
When we say “make your skincare work smarter”, Dr Barbara Sturm says “How smart?”. By creating formulas which hit a multitude of tick boxes Dr Barbara Sturm ensures that your products cover a plethora of concerns. In particular, these Sun Drops work against UVA and UVB rays, as well as protecting the skin from oxidative damage, reducing signs of skin irritation and keeping on top of all your anti-aging needs. Not to mention that they can be mixed into the Face Cream.
Face Cream – Dr Barbara Sturm
Available in a variety of formulas, Dr Barbara Sturm’s Face Cream is deeply nourishing, and the most lightweight, super fast absorbing, non-visible cream that is a perfect base for the rest of your skincare or makeup routine. If you’re looking for a radiant glow, this Face Cream is your new must-have.
Ferulic Acid Vitamin C Serum – Skinceuticals
This cult favourite, antioxidant rich serum helps defend your skin against environmental aggressors. Its expertly crafted formula helps to improve any visible signs of photo-damage, therefore, promoting bright, even-toned complexion. In my personal experience, I found the serum to brighten my skin within just a few weeks. I started applying the serum three times a week initially, and only used it in the morning.
BB Cream – Shiseido
The Shiseido BB cream has been a staple in my beauty bag for over 7 years now. The multifunctioning formula incorporates an SPF of 35 and has a super light, creamy texture that helps to conceal minor imperfections, leaving your skin looking fresh and even without any added greasiness.
