Skin Rescue

The ultimate products to revive winter skin

My go-to creams, serums and masks when my skin needs the life pumped back into it. Basically these products are like a tall glass of water for your face.

Blame it on winter, too much travel or just general aging (eeep), my skin has been in need of serious SOS lately, which has lead to a rather fervent search for skincare that will actually revive, hydrate and take care of my skin. These are the products I’m currently slathering on and swearing by.

NARS Multi Action Hydrating Toner

The only toner I use as my skin is naturally sensitive and a little dry. But this toner manages to remove oil whilst feeling more like a hydrating serum. Can’t get enough of the stuff.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Mask

Eye sheet masks are my crack; they are the ultimate weapon to sooth puffy eyes and soften fine lines after a late night.

111 Skin Celestial Black Diamond Eye Cream

I take my eye creams seriously (bags, puffiness and tired eyes is my number one skin woe) and whilst 111 Skin’s Celestial Black Diamond Eye Cream doesn’t quite perform miracles, it does rejuvenate the delicate eye area and actually make me look refreshed. Worth the (serious) splurge.

Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Twinkling Eyes

With a name like Hydra Sparkling Twinkling Eyes, what’s not to love? Givenchy’s icy revival gel revives eyes with a deliciously cooling gel that feels so good on tired skin. This is the product I reach for when I want to look like I had more sleep than I did. Apply under makeup first thing for best results.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

The ultimate hydrating moisturiser of all the hydrating moisturisers. Come winter, this is all I want to rub into my skin.

NARS Restorative Night Treatment

I take this tub on every flight without fail; it’s part gel, part hydrating moisturiser that is so intense it almost feels like a mask.

Dr. Jart Micro Milk Peel

A super gentle peel, a cleanser and an exfoliant all in one. The ultimate product to (very gently) smooth out the texture of the skin and leave you feeling fresh faced. Expect your skin to be super soft are just a few uses.
