Quick skin recovery tricks to bring the glow back

Quick skin recovery tricks to bring the glow back

Skin recovery doesn’t happen miraculously by itself – you need help! If your skin is in a bad way, for whatever reason, here are some products you can turn to to turn things around fast…


I don’t know about you, but I frequently present challenges to my skin. Here, have a load of sugar, see how you handle it! What, you mean you CAN’T look great on two hours sleep? Oh, here’s some career-related stress, enjoy!

I throw things like this at my skin regularly and often need to be rescued and brought back to glow. Here are some heavy hitters that help.

Nuxe Insta-masque Detoxifying and Glow mask

€19.90 from cloud10beauty.com

This is something that I tried over Christmas and it saved my skin from looking haggard. I spent Christmas Eve in the emergency vet with my dog, cried for hours (she’s fine now), didn’t sleep for basically two weeks and ate like a monster the entire time. And you’d never have known, because this mask refreshed and detoxed me, and gave me a glow I didn’t deserve.

Image Skincare Rescue Post Treatment Recovery Balm

€68.50 from millies.ie

If your skin needs help after you’ve gotten something done – be it Botox, fillers, a peel, laser, or anything like that, this is something your aesthetician might recommend. Although, be aware – please always check with your therapist post-treatment if you feel like your skin is reacting badly to a treatment. Trying to soothe it at home might not be for the best!

Kiehls Skin Rescuer Stress-Minimising Daily Hydrator

€35 from arnotts.ie

If you’ve got what I would call ‘temperamental’ skin, this one is for you. It helps to destress your skin, build up your skin’s barrier and generally calm everything down. Sometimes when my skin is being dramatic, I apply this to remind it how to behave.

REN Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm

€47.45 from lookfantastic.com

This REN gem is great, and it’s vegan and cruelty-free too if you’re sticking to using only that kind of skincare. It’s enriched with a blend of oil-derived lipids and so it helps to replenish the moisture levels below the skin surface and also to strengthen the natural barrier function. It’s suitable for all skin types too and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.
