With warmer days and nights on the horizon, now’s the perfect time to make sure your skin stays hydrated and plump. We show you how to get dewy and flawless skin fast.
Stay Dewy Fresh
A face mask is still one of the quickest ways to get softer skin in minutes. Try Neutrogena’s fab new Hydro Boost Hydrogel Recovery Mask, R59,95 for one. In the mornings, Clarins HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase, R735 for 30ml, is great to apply, followed by Sorbet Hydro Skin Aqua Day Gel, R220 for 48ml, to really super-charge your skin’s moisture levels.
At night, try Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Super Anti-ageing Cream, R329,99 for 50ml, or the pricey, but super-hydrating Lamelle Dermaheal Renewal Cream, R1 095 for 50ml, which has lovely anti-inflammatory properties in it, too.
Get Flawless Fast
To fake a smooth and poreless complexion try applying our beauty editor’s favourite primer, Ren Perfect Canvas silicone-free skin finishing serum, R325 for 30ml. Next, blend in a little dew-enhancing balm to keep skin glowing. We love Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift & Firm Makeup SPF 15, R585 for 30ml. Finally, finish off with a dab of creamy blush using your index and middle fingers to blend. Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Calypso Coral, R490, is a classic go-to.
