There's more than one secret to good skin, and it just takes some time to find the answer suited for you. While the journey to healthy skin can sometimes be frustrating when you've been steered in the right direction, it's an amazing relief when you finally discover products that actually work. Luckily, these days, skincare enthusiasts are more than happy to share their favourite skincare products, failsafe routines, and dermatology treatments—as opposed to just thanking their genetics. To help start the year with a fresh new skincare regime—or at the very least some new products to play with—I asked four women with amazing skin which products they love the most.
Fashion influencer Nicole Ocran is rarely seen without her radiant smile or radiant skin. She tells me she is "obsessed" with Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. Containing salicylic acid, the cult product is great for minimising blackheads, areas of redness, and breakouts while working to promote an even skin tone.
Samio has got her skincare routine down to a fine art and has enviable youthful dewy skin as a result. Products currently in Samio's roster includes Skin Generics Brightening Serum and their Arbutin Anti-Dark Spot Night Serum to help treat pigmentation and keep skin vibrant.
How keep your skin so youthful? "You can't really talk about anti-aging without SPF and Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 would be my top choice."
Skin Generics Arbutin Anti-Dark spot serum is a great option for a targeted anti-aging and pigmentation treatment. The serum contains collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin that reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Vitamin C is hailed as the key ingredient to help achieve dewy skin.Apply Skin Generics brightening serum morning and evening on freshly cleaned face to enhances skin brightness" Make sure to follow with SPF during the day.
Most know that prevention is better than cure when it comes to anti-aging and a good SPF is one such preventative measure. Dermalogica Prisma Protect not only helps protect skin from UV damage, it also promotes "luminosity."
Rosie Butcher can't get enough of Dermologica's products, especially the brand's firming serum and smoothing cream. 'I love them because I have seen such a positive appearance in my skin since using them," she explained. "The serum gives a lovely glow which makes my skin look healthier and in general my skin tone looks more even. The smoothing cream also lasts forever."
Apparently, Dermologica's Phyto Nature Serum helps "reduces visible wrinkles in just 4 weeks." We'd be keen to put this to the test...
Containing hyaluronic acid, the skin smoothing cream is championed for people who suffer with dry skin but is recommended for all skin types.
Fashion blogger Lauren Cokguler has committed to one anti-aging product for five years and it's still serving her well. "I’ve been using Elemis pro collagen for about 2 years and I'm obsessed with the smell," she shared. "I’ve been using anti ageing products in general since I was 27-ish and I'm now 32."
Elemis Pro-collagen marine cream is praised by many skincare enthusiasts. When applied to cleansed skin daily, it can improve skin's suppleness, firmness, and elasticity.
