The weather just cannot make up its mind can it? One day spring has sprung and the sun is shining, and the next minute the UK is experiencing cold showers, gale force winds and even snow.
The changing climate can be really harmful on your face. It is extremely important at this time of year to protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays, so daily antioxidant use is essential to protect your skin. After applying an antioxidant serum, you also need to use a great moisturiser to adequately hydrate your skin giving added protection from the cold weather, central heating, air conditioning as well as sun damage.
That is why we have chosen the innovative Hydrating B5 Gel as our best beauty buy of the month!
What are the benefits?
Replenishes the nutrients your skin needs to feel smooth and supple. Enriched with vitamin B5, it is proven to accelerate skin repair and has a skin regenerating effect.
Contains hyaluronic acid which is a natural protein made by our own bodies. It boosts the production of collagen and elastin, therefore increasing the repair of dead skin cells and delaying the formation of lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin appearing younger.
Hyaluronic acid can also hold and absorb large amounts of moisture. This means that not only does it protect the skin and give it a plump appearance, but it is also oil-free, so it won’t leave you feeling oily under the heat.
What is it suitable for?
Normal or combination skin
Which celebrities use it?
We’ll let you into a secret that none of the celebrities want you to know- some big stars use this product to stay fresh-faced and fabulous on the red carpet. The must-have gel can be found both in Kristen Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow’s beauty bag.
How much does it cost?
SkinCeuticals is an extremely reputable manufacturer as they only use high quality ingredients. Many of their products are backed by scientific evidence, so you can be sure they have active ingredients that really work and are making a difference to your skin.
As they are a cut above regular cosmetic products, the SkinCeuticals brand is not available on the high street and regular department stores, and only available to purchase through approved medical spa’s including Face Clinic London and their online Skincare store at just £59 for a 30ml bottle which will last you for three months.
SkinCeuticals are used and recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, select pharmacies, and medical spas all over the UK to correct the signs of aging and prevent future damage. Just try it for yourself to see why everyone is raving about the brand, you’ll never look back!
Why is it ideal?
It nourishes, protects and hydrates; maximising the benefits of a normal, daily moisturiser.
How do you use it?
Simply apply 2-3 drops on the face, neck and chest once or twice a day. Make sure you avoid your eyes. You can also apply it to other areas of the body that may be dehydrated. We highly recommended you to use it after applying a SkinCeuticals antioxidant serum and follow with a SkinCeuticals Sunscreen.
