Who wants Fabulous Skin this Christmas?

Is fabulous skin on your Christmas list this year? Now, there are a few things money can’t buy – like getting enough sleep and good genes. But there are a few treats Santa can deliver to you that will make your skin have that healthy holiday glow-ho-ho!

Fabulous skin is desirable at any age, so whether you’re spoiling your youthful yet slightly spotty teenage cousin or your Aunty who has more lines then a zebra we’ve got your back.

Teenagers usually have lovely plump skin, however sometimes the over production of sebum at that age leads to congested skin which causes clogged pores, black heads and acne. Let’s be honest; no one misses teenage skin! Teenagers these days are more beauty-savvy than ever, they are skipping the wearing two-shades darker foundation and blue mascara tradition and going straight to Kimmy K contour perfection. To give the gift of fabulous skin to a teenager who probably knows more than they should, we recommend a skin clearing mask to prevent future breakouts (or breakdowns!)

Stocking filler:

Dermalogica Mediac Clearing Sebum Clearing Masque

Splurge:

Early adulthood is when skin is at its best (or when it should be)! Hormonal activity settles down, however this is when lifestyle and environmental factors affect the skin’s appearance – or as my mother calls it, “burning the candle at both ends!” This is a crucial time to invest in appropriate skincare for the future as prevention is better than a cure (is that my mother talking again?!) Improve the look and feel of dehydrated skin with an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells and use a cream lock in moisture to achieve a plump, clear, healthy glow.

Stocking filler:

Mature skin needs the most TLC; the levels of collagen drop, skin loses its elasticity and tends to dry out with age. Using a serum/facial oil and spending a few minutes massaging in circular motions will stimulate the blood flow and sebaceous glands to restore the skins natural radiance.
