Products to get your glow back

 With the change in seasons I have noticed a huge change in my skin texture. It's dehydrated from the central heating, dry from the north wind here in Norfolk and just doesn't look very radiant.
 I've begun to switch up a few items from my regular routine so that more radiance boosting products are being used.
 Here are a few of my favourite products that have given me noticable glowing results. 

SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10-£80

Anything that works whilst I sleep is a win for me. SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew overnight is a lightweight lotion that contains Glycolic acid at 10%.

 This high dose of AHA means that it’s only suitable for nighttime use when no exposure to UV will occur.

 It’s my go-to product when my skin is lack lustre, dry, dull or if I have any marks from old blemishes that I want to assist in reducing.

 If you’ve never used Glycolic before then use sparingly to begin with and gradually over time, increase usage. Overuse can lead to dry flaky patches so take your time. Even once tolerant, only a pea-sized amount is required.

 Good for pigmentation, dull skins, post treatment skin, acne scaring, or skin affected by pollution, central heating or seasonal change.Shop here.

Medik8 C-Tetra-£35

I adore most Medik8 products. They are a good brand to go for if you want no nonsense, does what it says on the tin with good results. 


 Vitamin C is notoriously good for pigmentation, dullness or scarring but the Medik8 C-Tetra is particularly good. Firstly it smells amazing. Zingy and fresh and not synthetic. The texture is very light, making it suitable for all skin types, including oily. It’s lipid-soluble, which means the molecule size can penetrate the skin’s natural lipid Bilayer structure, and help to strengthen the skins defense, assists in radiance and stimulates collagen production.
Good for pigmentation, scarring, skin that needs plumping and skin that doesn’t radiate a healthy glow.Shop here.

Ren Ready Steady Glow AHA Toner-£25

I’ve used a ton of acid toners and for an affordable one that produces obvious results then the AHA toner from Ren is a good purchase.

Not stingy or drying but sweeps off dead skin cells and assists in cell renewal without drying. A host of acids including lactic acid, glycolic acid and azelaic acid to assist in loosening the bonds that hold dead skin cells to the adjacent cells, refine pores and fine lines whilst hydrating and brightening.

 Good for sensitive skin (although build your tolerance) skin that has poor healing or slow cell turnover. Both oily or dry skins and those who are prone to breakouts.Shop here.

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Mist-£18.50

This facial spritz is like a caffeine shot for the skin. Spritz on after your final stage of skincare application before foundation application. If you’re after a double dose then chose the Ginzing Tinted Moisturiser, it’s awesome also.

  It contains coffee to stimulate the skin cells, citrus oil including grapefruit, orange and lemon. Glycerin to hydrate, Tourmaline to energise and encourage collagen reproduction, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate which, is a stable form of Vitamin C and Folic acid to fight skin ageing.
 It’s a spritz that lifts the spirits and also assists in the flawless buffing in of your base makeup.Shop here.

Sunday Riley Juno Face oil-£35/£70

I’ve used Juno as part of my evening regime for years and notice the difference in my skin if I forget to use it. It’s beautiful to use nightly as a facial massage or treatment oil. It’s a thick oil that feels occlusive and nourishing. Like a comforting blanket of skin nutrition.
Contains a host of super food ingredients including blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, carrot and broccoli. We all know the benefits of eating these ingredients so imagine the benefit when used exclusively topically on the skin.
 If you have a big event coming up that requires you to feel confident in your skin then Juno is worth a look. I think it works on all skin types but those who have scarring, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, irritation and lackluster skin will benefit the most. It lives up to the hype in my opinion.Shop here.

Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Butter-£10

I’ve used loads of different cleansing balms but I always go back to this one. Not only is it easy to get hold of, it’s budget friendly and for most of us, cleansers are hastily massaged in and washed off, so who wants to spend a fortune?

 It’s balmy without being greasy, melts away even stubborn makeup, massages over with the perfect amount of slip and removes without residue. It’s nourishing, hydrating, fully cleanses and calms even a sensitive skin. A little goes a long way so it lasts ages.

 Emollient based with added olive fruit oil, vitamin E and sunflower seed oil. If you’re prone to breakouts then be aware that this does contain shea butter, which has been linked to blemishes and breakouts.Shop here.

Apothaka Comforting Oil Booster-£15.50

During the season change from stifling summer to northerly winds and sideways rain, this has been my secret weapon. A small drop goes along way and I have found it beneficial to massage into the smaller areas of my face that are in need or a little extra TLC. You can of course use it all over if required.

 It’s essential oil free, if you’re sensitive to EO and contains essential fatty acids, safflower and sunflower to protect and nourish. The added calendula is good for an irritated or impaired skin and Coenzyme Q10 soothes whilst acting as a powerful antioxidant.

 Good for topical use on areas of impaired skin or for use all over for a luxurious bedtime treatment that won’t break the bank!Shop here.
