Ask any skin expert or dermatologist and they’ll tell you there are a few key ingredients that are proven to make a significant difference to your skin. The first being retinol. “Yes, we’ve heard of it… but why’s it so great?” you ask. Well, you can read all about its genius effect on the skin here, but we’re excited to see a new wave of retinols taking things to the next level.
Enter: legendary dermatologist Dr Dennis Gross, whose new advanced retinol range includes a patented Phyto-Retinol Blend™ that combines two types of retinol with bakuchiol and ferulic acid in a powerful blend that reduces the look of blemishes, speeds up skin renewal and refines fine lines and texture. Although mighty, this formula can be used daily AM or PM, but more sensitive skin types may want to ease in with a few times week. Also creating clever combinations is Murad, which has blended two A* ingredients in its Vita-C range – vitamin C and glycolic acid – to create a potent formula that dramatically brightens and protects the skin from future damage.
Some products (quite literally) take decades in the making. After 30 years’ research, stem cell scientist Professor Augustinus Bader created The Cream, a fast-absorbing formula that contains Trigger Factor Complex – a compound that unlocks your skin’s natural renewal process. After consistent use, you’ll notice a brighter, firmer more refined complexion. It’s genius!
We’re also seeing new levels of hydration hit the skincare scene. Suqqu’s new Aqufons range contains formulas that flood the skin with moisture and promote hyaluronic acid production for bouncy, luminous results (even on the driest of skin). Plus, La Mer’s The Hydrating Infused Emulsion combines the brand’s famed Miracle Broth™ with vitamin A, C and E, lime tea and fatty acids to lock in moisture, protect and strengthen the skin – perfect for transitional weather as we head into cooler climates.
