The Secret To Great Skin


The Secret To Great Skin

2015 is the year of great skin, and for those who are super serious about anti-ageing, there are four ingredients that always work. They are the hard-core must haves that won't let you down. And here they are...

PEPTIDES. Peptides are proteins that encourage the skin cells to produce more collagen. They keep the skin firm, smooth and wrinkle-free. For serious collagen-boosting benefits you need peptides in your life.

VITAMIN C. This is soooooo important. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant which protects the skin from free radicals AND brightens the complexion. It builds collagen, increases cell turnover and really (yes, really!) makes the skin so glowy and radiant. Buy the serum rather than the lotion. I love Obagi Vitamin C serum.

RETINOL. Retinol is a miracle worker. It fixes ageing spots, wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes. It does everything. It's a form of Vitamin A and it's the best, best, best way to fight the ageing process and keep the skin young and plump. Use a retinal cream at night.

GLYCOLIC ACID. This is a fab exfoliator which fights fine lines and pigmentation. Use it every second night before your night cream. I use Alpha-H products.
So when you're shopping for a good moisturiser or cleanser, make sure you check the list of ingredients for these anti-ageing properties.

Love, Elle xo
