In most parts of the UK we’ve had an exceptionally blue sky, sunshine weekend. I’ve spent most of it in my bed, too snotty to move, but one thing hasn’t escaped my notice. Bright sunshine = every single beauty thing you didn’t do over winter that you should have done. I’ve looked aghast at my dry legs (I am ashamed to say I got out of the habit of Imedeen and it has now completely shown on my body, so I’m getting back on that from today as a beauty emergency!) and pale face that seems to need a jolly good deep cleanse. Basically, it seems, I need rolling in exfoliator from head to foot and then drowned in moisturiser and popped out in the sun for two weeks.
Failing that, I’ve got my favourites to fall back on – Mio Double Buff, for one – the best enzymatic exfoliator for dry skin I’ve ever used (£23 HERE)….
and Ameliorate Skin Smoothing Body Lotion (£17.50 HERE) that’s perfect for – horrible term but you’ll know what I mean – and highly effective on, chicken skin.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
However, going back to the Korean Magic Peeling Mitt (actually, it’s just been pointed out to me that this has Chinese writing on it – so maybe it’s Chinese!) – this is a handy little thing to have for daily in-shower exfoliating; with a rough side for body washing with an exfoliating effect and a flannel side for getting a good lather to make exfoliating a smooth experience. It’s only £4 HERE and if you’re getting out the self-tan already, will whisk off all those uneven, dry skin bits so it’s a seamless finish.
**NB: Just had confirmation that the method of peeling is typically Korean, but the actual product is Chinese.
