5 little things our experts do daily for a brighter complexion…

Do you want a more radiant skin?

Do you have dull, tired-looking skin? The weather may be drab but there’s no need for your skin to be too. Follow our simple steps to rescue your complexion.


Exfoliation is key to a brighter complexion.  By simply adding exfoliation to your daily routine, you can rid yourself of the build up of dull and dry skin, to reveal newer, smoother skin underneath. Exfoliation can also help improve skin tone and tackle clogged pores.  We recommend trying a cleansing brush – it’s the best for removing makeup and for daily exfoliation.

Hydrate and protect

Central heating, biting wind and cold weather conditions can cause many problems for the skin, including dehydration and its associated side effects. For a brighter complexion during the winter, your skin demands extra hydration – inside and out – so it’s important to increase fluid intake to boost your skin’s vitality.  It’s also vital that you protect your skin from the outside too. Ensure you include a good moisturiser, containing antioxidants, and an SPF in your daily routine to keep skin smooth and bright.

Eat brighter

Cells are constantly renewed so a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. If you eat the right foods you’ll feed your skin the nutrients it needs to help it stay smooth and problem  free.  Enriching your diet with food high in antioxidants and vitamins C and E as well as eating more foods high in essential fatty acids, such as fish, walnuts and flax seeds, will also contribute to a brighter complexion. These essential fatty acids are crucial to healthy skin as they help boost your precious collagen levels and cell formation.

Routine routine routine

Embrace a daily anti-ageing skincare regime which includes exfoliation and antioxidant-rich products. You need a bespoke skincare regime to follow, with products that will cleanse, protect and repair. Your skin is as unique as a fingerprint so ensure you get advice on what would work best for your skin. Once your routine is in place, you can increase your skin’s vitality and luminosity with a rejuvenating HydraFacial.
