SKIN AND BARE IT: Up your game and protect your canvas with 10 healthy-skin habits
1. Scrub a dub dub
Investing in a good body- and face scrub will do wonders to reveal your gorgeous skin. When it comes to your body, grainy scrubs are fine, but as far as your face goes, avoid anything that contains large beads, as they can cause micro-tears in the skin. We recommend Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1.0 Twice A Day Exfoliator (R265), which is gentle enough to use on your face and neck.
2. Hydration station
Hyaluronic acid keeps skin healthy and lubricated. It already occurs naturally in our bodies and is great at retaining water, so adding a hyaluronic acid-infused serum to your routine will keep your skin looking younger and feeling supple. Our favourite pick is Eucerin Volume-Filler Serum Concentrate (R379.95).
3. Star child
Retinol – according to skincare guru Kate Somerville, this wonder ingredient has endless benefits. ‘It stimulates collagen production, repairs environ-mental damage, aids wrinkle reduction, reduces scarring … it does it all!’ Start by using Dr Brandt Glow by Dr Brandt Overnight Resurfacing Serum (Price on request) every second or third day until your skin adapts to it.
4. Drink up
You’ve probably heard this a million times, but nourishing your skin starts from the inside, so chug some H2O. Keep a bottle filled with water on
your desk at work so you don’t forget.
