Even if you have what seems like a good skincare routine, it can be easy to get stuck in a rut with the same old products, which can sometimes leave your skin looking a little lacklustre. Sometimes it can do us good to change things up a little in order to keep our skin on its proverbial toes, so using products with reviving properties can really help. Today, we’re looking at our best restorative products to give you some inspiration on how to get your skin back to its best.
The eyes are a really common area for needing a reviving product as they can often succumb to dark circles and puffiness. This eye reviver from Elemis is super-lightweight and so won’t feel heavy on the delicate eye area and is clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles by up to 37%. This formula will tighten, firm and hydrate the area – oh , and did we mention that it’s made for men?!
Lips are an area of the face which often get forgotten because they’re buried under lipstick, but they’re also one of the first places to show signs of neglect! Lips can become dry and flaky if not cared for properly and poor hydration will exacerbate the appearance of any fine lines around the mouth. This lip revive from Elemis is designed to rehydrate the lips giving a more nourished appearance while the nourishing white bees wax base, rich in vitamins is blended with Peppermint to cool and smooth.
Exfoliators are an incredible method of reviving the skin because often, although you may cleanse and tone daily, the products you use might not be enough to really slough away the top layer of skin cells which die and look dull. Using this scrub will reveal the new layer of skin beneath, leaving your skin looking restored immediately after use.
Spot-prone skin can feel as though it’s being weighed down under excess sebum and you need a product which can break through that layer and revive the skin beneath. This spritzing toner from Dermalogica is specifically designed for teens and young people with acneic skin and can be used throughout the day as a refreshing and purifying spritzing toner to keep the face feeling fresh. As well as refreshing the face and cooling areas of irritation, it will also help to kill the bacteria responsible for breakouts.
Possibly one of our favourite ways to revive our skin is to treat it to a masque treatment. This masque from Dermalogica is perfect for skin with an excess sebum problem and is designed to remove excess oils and impurities from the skin while providing a natural deep cleanse. Taking time out to apply a masque and let it sit on the skin is good for the mind too, and by the time you wash it off you should have a clearer head and fresher skin!
