Ultimate Top Tips for Great Skin

Executive Editor Susan Vasquez has some sage advice when it comes to your daily skincare regime: “Apply your moisturiser in an upward motion, rather than dragging it down your face. Start at your décolletage (so you don’t forget the area – very important), work it up your neck and then apply it to your face, using firm upward motions. You don’t want to give gravity a helping hand, do you? Oh, another great tip: try not to frown too much in your 20s – your wrinkle-free forehead will thank you when it hits 40.”

With Lancôme’s new Rénergie Multi-Lift Day Cream for all skin types, you’ve got an extra helping hand when it comes to defying gravity. What you’re getting here is a redefining lifting cream, with anti-wrinkle properties that promote firming and contouring for both the face and neck.

Beauty Editor of IMAGE.ie Caroline Foran stresses the importance of SPF: “Though it might not feel as though the sun can damage your skin when you’re living under grey, Irish skies, those nasty UV rays are still at work. Whatever you do, make sure you’re investing in something that boasts an impressive SPF unless it’s thirsty, weathered skin you’re after.”

The Lancôme Rénergie Multi-Lift Rich Cream for dry feeling skin, also new to Lancôme’s shelves, is the perfect antidote to your SPF worries. This luxurious cream comes with a SPF of 15, and it’s suitable even for those sensitive-skinned folk among us. With this, your skin tone will appear more even and radiant. What’s more, it will feel firmer and tighter as if lifted.

Editorial Director Laura George is also a big advocate of sun protection: “Wear sunglasses and sunscreen no matter the weather (all my pigmentation is on my right side from driving). If you don’t always wear sunglasses outside, believe me, you will regret it by the time you’re 40-squinty wrinkles galore. Sunscreen also obviously helps stay the inevitable march of pigmentation if you’re dark haired. And never underestimate the power of a good quality serum for glowing skin.”

Along with the right topical products, such as the a Lancôme Renergie collection here, Editor in Chief Melanie Morris can’t say enough about rest and hydration: “Lots of good quality sleep and water = much better skin. The further away from those two basics I go, the closer to a raisin I resemble. On top of that, it’s a strong skin care regime with the likes of Lancôme and my skin has no complaints.”

BASH Editor Kate is also a fan of skincare that starts on the inside: “Along with using the products best suited to your skin type – Lancôme’s  Renergie Multi-Lift Eye Cream works a treat as far as I’m concerned – I’m a huge advocate of nourishing your skin from the inside out. As part of my daily regime, I take Vitamin E capsules; an Essential Fatty Acid oil blend (made of flax, sunflower, coconut, sesame and evening primrose oil); and Astaxanthin, a naturally occurring carotenoid that I truly being to be a miracle-worker,(not relevant for a Lancome piece) most importantly, because it boosts the skin’s internal sunscreen and balances hydration. If your skin is healthy, the products you invest in will be all the more effective.”

Other top skin care tips from team IMAGE:

1. It’s always helpful to consult the advice of a skin care expert when it comes to choosing products that will complement your skin’s texture, moisture levels, age, etc. The Lancôme Elite Team are your skincare heroes.

2. Always remember to moisturise your face and neck before you go to sleep – this is when your skin will be hard at work absorbing all those skin-loving goodies, leaving you refreshed and hydrated come morning.

3. You can spend all the money in the world on expensive make-up products, but skin care must come first. To avoid make-up sitting on your face, appearing dry and cakey, or absorbing straight into your pores, the right skin care formula is key, in terms of preparation.

Editorial Director Laura George is also a big advocate of sun protection and she goes absolutley gaga over a good quality serum: “Wear sunglasses and sunscreen no matter the weather (all my pigmentation is on my right side from driving).

Sunscreen also obviously helps stay the inevitable march of pigmentation if you’re dark haired. And never underestimate the power of a good quality serum for glowing skin. Whenit comes to skincare that works, Lancôme have long been a favourite of mine.”

BASH Editor Kate is also a fan of skincare that starts on the inside: “Though you may read about brilliant products that tick all of the boxes, it’s really important, in my opinion, to choose skincare that’s specifically beneficial to your skin type – Lancôme’s Renergie Multi-Lift Rich Cream works a treat for me as I’ve always grappled with slightly thirsty skin, but you might be better off with the Day Cream option, if your skin’s not too dry. I’m also a big believer in the importance of perfecting your own skincare ritual. For me, it’s all about cleansing, toning, and moisturising, and always in that order. What’s more, you can’t beat the added bonus of a good eye cream. Lancôme’s Renergie Multi-Lift Eye Cream gets two thumbs up from me.
