1 The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA, $12.70
An acid is a non-negotiable for speeding up cell renewal and reversing lazy skin behaviour. Mandelic acid has large molecules that penetrate the skin more slowly than glycolic and lactic acid, so you don’t have to worry about irritation.
2 SkinCeuticals LHA Cleanser, $59
This cleanser boasts three kinds of active exfoliating ingredients (yep, beta- lipohydroxy acid, glycolic and salicylic acid) to gently buff away dead skin cells, address any breakouts and keep skin fresh. Use daily on oily or combo skin.
3 Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 30 PA++, $85
Sun damage slows down skin-cell renewal, so SPF is a must in your quest for a luminous complexion. This triple- action protector shields your face from UV rays, works to help fade pigmentation and rms up skin. Nice!
4 Aspect Gold Probiotic Sleep Mask, $59
Daily wear and tear can strip skin of healthy bacteria, meaning the top layer of cells are less adept at retaining moisture. This calming mask feeds skin with probiotics so cells remain healthy.
5 Doctor Babor Ultimate ECM Repair Serum, $214
Skin cells, much like us, thrive in areas that communicate well. This serum acts like a cell whisperer, making sure cells can send repair signals to each other and stimulate water retention so skin stays hydrated for longer.
6 La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Daily Moisturiser, $35.99
If your skin starts prickling at the thought of an even a remotely elaborate skincare routine then Toleriane Ultra is the moisturizer for you. Perfect for sensitive, intolerant skin, its intense and long-lasting formula will keep skin happy.
