Make 2022 your year to glow with this easy step-by-step skincare guide from Harvey Nichols Birmingham.
The combination of cold weather and central heating can be extremely drying for your skin. A good morning routine is essential to prepare your skin for the day ahead. Try out the following steps to create a brighter, more radiant complexion and provide a barrier of protection.
Step 1 –
The first step on the journey to reaching your glow goals is this multiuse enzyme cleanser, exfoliator and mask which helps to support surface cellular renewal and reveal healthy-looking, radiant skin. Enriched with ESPA’s unique Vital Nutrients Omega + Essential Vitamin complex which contains high levels of fatty acids and Vitamin E to replenish and nourish, this 3-in-1 formula smooths and visibly brightens the complexion.
Step 2 –
Once cleansed, the Vitamin-C Tonic will promote healthy collagen production and boost the skin’s luminosity. The probiotics in this brightening toner help to fortify the skin’s barrier, while willow bark and fruit extracts gently exfoliate all skin types.
Step 3 –
During the winter months it is still possible to have glowing skin. Rodial’s luxurious Vit C Face Soufflé works to deeply hydrate the skin, while diminishing the appearance of age spots and hyper pigmentation.
Step 4 –
Advanced Nutrition Programme’s Vitamin C Plus tablets contain 1000mg of vitamin C, combined with bioflavonoids, to help support your natural immune defences and to help reduce fatigue* especially during the winter season or during stressful periods.
After a busy day, a night-time routine will cleanse your skin and help you wind down ready for a great night’s sleep.
Step 1 –
This luscious, soft blue cleansing balm easily removes impurities and makeup (even stubborn eye makeup) using gentle sugar-based cleansers to leave skin thoroughly clean, comfortable, hydrated, and glowing. Therapeutic essential oils, of blue tansy and German chamomile, help to calm the look of irritated, dry, flaky skin, while tangerine oil helps improve clarity. With a softening base of organic cocoa, moringa butters, and enriched with essential oils of vanilla and sweet orange to relax the mind and create a sense of balance, this melting cleansing balm gives skin a tranquil, pure, and healthy cleanse.
Step 2 –
Once cleansed, this creamy, comforting formula will be hard at work while you sleep. It helps to help replenish and fortify the skin with a powerful blend of antioxidant-rich willow herb, smoothing buriti oil. All potent ingredients will collectively help maximise every minute of your beauty sleep to ensure you wake looking refreshed and healthy.
Step 3 –
Smooth Sisley’s creamy Lip Balm over your lips for a comfortable, supple feel. The combination of oils (Hazelnut, Plum and Sunflower) and butters (Shea and Kokum) effectively relieve any discomfort as well as repairing, rehydrating and plumping lips.
Step 4 –
This Works Deep Sleep Body Cocoon is a multi-tasking beauty sleep saviour for better nights and brighter mornings. The formula features a powerful anti-ageing super blend of shea butter, crambe and camelia, sativa oils to nourish, support and preserve skin vitality and pure essential oils of lavender, vetivert and camomile to help improve sleep quality
