While the change in the season can bring forth many positives - crunching leaves, chunky woolen knits, wholesome comfort food - it's not all that good for our skin. Soon enough, dare I say it, we'll have the central heating on full blast only for our skin to be stripped of the moisture it needs to look its best. Naturally, it's time to take a look at our beauty routines and see what needs changing. What's essential here is finding the right moisturiser.
Whether you experience combination skin that's sometimes oily and sometimes not so, sensitive skin that's prone to mild breakouts or suffer from incredibly dry skin the minute the temperature drops (like this here writer), one brand of cream that we've found to satisfy such concerns, is Liz Earle's Skin Repair Moisturiser.
This perfectly balanced moisturiser softens, smoothes and conditions skin for a naturally healthy-looking glow. Rich in natural actives, including borage oil (a rich source of the essential fatty acid GLA), and natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E to replace lost moisture and help protect against dryness. Naturally active ingredients include borage and avocado oils to moisturise and smooth.
Packed full of goodies, you'll also be treating your skin to some echinacea extract, hops extract and more. Where other intense repairing moisturisers can often fall down, is when they are far too rich and heavy on the skin.
The right cream should hydrate and nourish without that heavy feeling, it should be easily absorbed into the skin, as Liz Earle's moisturiser does, and it shouldn't leave you with a residual, greasy sheen.
Whether you opt for the Dry/Sensitive option or the Normal/Combination, Liz Earle's Skin Repair Moisturiser earns the title of this week's Skin Hero.
Longing for more expert skincare and beauty advice? You're in luck. IMAGE are only thrilled to be hosting an evening with Liz Earle herself to talk all things beauty, botanics and business. Places for the event will be limited, but you can get ahead of the pack by purchasing a ticket right here.
