"Help, I look haggard and worn out!"
Symptoms: It's been a long week, you spent a night on the tiles or the season's wreaking havoc with your skin. Your skin's dull or sallow, making you look and feel ten years older...Solution: A morning boost! First step is a good scrub after cleansing, to zap blemishes that dull skin and give your circulation a kick start. Follow with a toner to gently prod your face back into action. It will get rid of any remaining grime and brighten your complexion. Finish off with a perfecting moisturiser that will also nourish and protect your skin.
Symptoms: no sign of them during summer, but the dreaded dark circles have come back with a vengeance. Accompanied, of course, by their partner in crime - bags! Not the best of looks... Bluey-purple shadows and eyes as puffy as an adder. This happens when the fragile skin around our eyes becomes congested. Solution: a thermal shock! Cleanse your face, soak a cotton tip in cold water and run it across your eye contour to decongest and stimulate this zone. Gently massage in an eye contour treatment (to be kept in the fridge!) as this will boost your circulation. Do this a couple of times a day for manga rather than panda eyes.
Symptoms: spots, pimples and red blotches have invaded your face...Solution: often a sign of chronic fatigue, the best thing you can do is deeply cleanse your skin. It's already feeling weary and you don't want to further harm it by not cleansing. Best to opt for a double cleansing routine to both clean and purify your skin. Follow with an overnight face mask to gorge your skin with hydrating active ingredients. Your epidermis will get a good boost whilst you sleep and you'll wake up a new person. Works like magic!
