Holy Grail Products to Combat Common Skin Issues

Fine lines

There’s no stopping them, but you can minimise them! There are tons of anti-ageing products out there, but it’s difficult to know which will actually minimise and prevent fine lines effectively. Here are some of our favourites.

Youngblood Mineral Primer
£31

Youngblood

Youngblood Mineral Primer is currently my favourite Primer. It’s oh-so-soft to apply and glides on like silk. Before I tried this product I would steer clear of powder foundation products as they cracked and caked around my fine lines, but now thanks to this Primer my Bare Minerals foundation is back out my drawer and into my regular make-up bag, so i’m prepared for when I’m running late and want a quick easy foundation. Fortunately Youngblood Mineral Primer also protects from white-face flash photography, environmental irritating elements and helps your make-up to last well.

£31 may seem steep for a primer, but you only need a teeny tiny bit so the bottle lasts for ages.

iS Clinical Youth Serum
£135

This renowned product is probably the closest you can get to a facelift without surgery! It contains heaps of brilliant ingredients that repair and stimulate collagen production, such as Seaweed Algae extract, Extremozymes, Centella Asiatics and Copper Tripeptide Growth Factor!

There are tons of 5-star reviews for iS Clinical Youth Serum online and it is clinically proven to be one of the most effective anti-ageing formulas out there, so you can be confident that this purchase is money we’ll spent! Pair with iS Clinical Active Serum for additional benefits.

iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex
£80

iS-Clinical-Youth-Eye-Complex-510x600

iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex is an incredible product for reducing lines from around the eyes. It contains proteins, peptides and growth factors, and provides antioxidant protection.

When I first used this cream I was surprised at how well it hydrates and diminishes puffiness and dark circles almost instantly! It is expensive, but includes a variety of well-formulated ingredients and is suitable for all skin types.

The iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex also works long-term to increase collagen and elastin synthesis, and has a lot of good publicity and feedback online.

When applying the cream, ensure to use a tiny amount otherwise it can sting (speaking from personal experience)!

Hypersensitive Skin

iS Clinical Cleansing Complex
£33.99

If you suffer from hypersensitive skin, you’ll know the benefits of investing in decent beauty products that don’t agitate your skin. Symptoms of hypersensitive skin can include redness, tingling, itching and a burning sensation or tightening of the skin, all of which are seriously uncomfortable! This iS Clinical Cleansing Complex is a gentle daily exfoliating gel cleanser which is just perfect for hypersensitive skin. It’s formulated with bio nutrients, antioxidants and mild resurfacing ingredients which thoroughly cleanses the skin and reduces excess oil without drying.

To use, simply apply 3-4 drops to cleanse the skin at night or in the morning and at night, before your usual daily moisturiser. You really will notice the difference with this gentle product!

Dry Skin

Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Skin Rehydration Serum
£29.99

A couple of weeks ago, I treated myself to a facial; it was pure bliss and extremely relaxing. However, the take home message at the end of the treatment was that my skin was severely dehydrated and felt ‘crepe like’. In all honesty, I wasn’t really aware of this. I knew it was a little dry, but severely dehydrated – really?! I was certain that I drank a good amount of water and moisturised daily – although maybe not enough on reflection.  Of course, there are other factors that can cause dry skin, such as medication and diet.

When I heard about Medik8 B5 Skin Rehydration Serum, I was more than willing to give this one a whirl. After cleansing, I applied six drops onto my skin which gobbled up the serum in about ten seconds. I was shocked – my beauty therapist was definitely right! I’ve been using this product now for a few days and do genuinely feel that make-up was easier to apply onto my skin. Not quite baby skin soft, but it is most definitely smoother than before and certainly injects some ‘oomph’ into my skin!

Firming Cream

Terproline Face Firming Cream
£24.95

SKINMED-terproline-face-cream-11-510x600

This excellent face firming cream by Terproline is made from essential ingredients to help improve the appearance, tone and elasticity of skin. Boasting a pleasant smell, this cream leaves the skin feeling lovely and smooth which I’m sure you’ll notice after the first use. It’s a great product which increases collagen production, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Oh and it’s paraben free too, so it’s great for you and the environment!

Skin That Burns Easily
