Barefaced beauty – the skin resolutions to make now…

By  |  0 Comments

DESPITE the Spring / Summer 2014 catwalks being all about bold brights, the makeup was far less bold this season.
Focusing mainly on flawless skin, the theme was more about achieving that ‘no makeup,’ makeup look.
Although slightly underwhelming for product junkies, the focus was more about looking healthy than evidently made-up.
But, ironically, it’s not all that easy to achieve this bare-faced look and can take a few trusty products to nail it.
It seems, however, that the big beauty brands have already taken note of the trend and are now focused on creating high-tech foundations and skincare products which won’t wreak havoc on the skin.
Treatment foundations, mineral products and organic skincare is more readily available now than ever before.
Forget slathering on layer after layer of foundation to conceal problem areas. Check out some of my favourite beauty fixes to give you that desired model complexion.

Advanced Nutrition Programme Vit A+ Capsules, £19.50

THERE is no denying that good skin comes more from what we put in our body than onto it.
And despite our efforts to eat nutritious food, there is strong evidence that a shortfall of many key nutrients can prevent is from having healthy, beautiful skin.
One of the most important vitamins for clear, wrinkle-free skin is Vitamin A, which influences the skin’s immune and sun protection qualities and helps prevent collagen breakdown which can lead to sagging, creased skin.
However most of us don’t get enough of this vitamin all year round, so ‘feeding your face’ with supplements could very well be the way forward.
Skin Vit A+ by Advanced Nutrition Programme is perfect for those with troublesome skin and will keep you looking younger for longer.

Murad Renewing Cleansing Oil, £29

DR Murad and Jeff Murad have created Murad’s very first cleansing oil to help revitalise and purify skin while locking in moisture.
Cleansing oils are finally shaking off their daunting reputation and are guaranteed to deliver great results.
This non-comedogenic cleanser uses a botanical blend of grape seed, pomegranate seed and sunflower seed oils and gently removes impurities and makeup, leaving the skin soft and glowing.
Dr. Howard Murad, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA and founder of Murad skincare says: “Many people are hesitant to put oil-based products on their skin for fear of clogging pores or causing breakouts.
“This is a misconception. Even oily skin needs moisture — it just needs the right kind.”
This removes waterproof makeup and improves skin within days of using. Buy online and find your nearest stockist at www.murad.co.uk
