Optima Nutricosmetics Complete Skin Food Elixir Ultimate. I am constantly on the lookout for beauty products that make a real difference with minimal effort. I simply don’t have time for multi-step routines and daily make-up. This skin food elixir is exactly that. I simply add a couple of tablespoons of the powder to my morning smoothie, and within six weeks I noticed plumper, more hydrated skin and much thicker hair — no complicated, expensive beauty routines needed. As a happy bonus, I almost never suffer from bloating since taking this powdered magic!
Product to watch
Amperna Pro. + Vitamin C Hyaluronic Serum. I’m one of those lucky people who is constantly battling with sensitive, breakout-prone skin. Vitamin C often doesn’t agree with my volatile skin, but this formula is so gentle and hydrating, I can even use it during a perioral dermatitis flare-up. Amperna products are specifically formulated for those with sensitive skin like mine, so if you’re battling with dermatitis, rosacea or acne, their range of probiotic skincare is a really gentle but effective answer to stressed-out skin. This serum has an easy, gel-like consistency that layers wonderfully under moisturiser and make-up, and can be worn on its own during summer or for more oily skin types. It’s instantly hydrating and I noticed my skin looked brighter and “glowier” after a few weeks of use.
Sensori + Clarifying & Rejuvenating Treatment Essence. Another probiotic-rich formulation, this essence is one of those products you don’t realise you need until you try it. It contains one of my favourite skincare ingredients, niacinamide, which brightens, regulates oil production and tackles fine lines — it’s a bit of an all-rounder superstar no matter your skin type. Within a couple of weeks, I noticed my skin tone looked more even and my pores less visible, and my T-zone was less oily at the end of the day. I felt more confident without make-up, which is a huge win as a busy new mum!
EcoTan Hempitan Body Tan Water. I have the fairest of fair skin, and while I spent most of my 20s desperately trying to tan in the sun, I have finally come around to the much safer and healthier way of (natural) fake tanning. Orange sheets and fake tan-smelling skin are big turn-offs for me, so I love that this tanning water develops in just an hour. It takes literally seconds to apply and dries instantly, so you can apply it in the evening and wash off before bed, or even in the morning and wash off before work.
