When it comes to the beauty world, new products are appearing even faster than your mascara expires (three months, in case you didn’t know). Here are some of the latest skin-loving thingamajigs you need to say hi to in order to stay relevant and keep your skin in tip-top condition.
Think of it as your skin being polished to get rid of dead skin cells for a vibrant glow. It reduces mild acne scarring, smoothens fine wrinkles, evens out skin tone and exfoliates clogged pores. This is best for people will dull or leathery skin, or those with mild pigmentation problems.
Peeling is a chemical process that rejuvenates the skin so you can really go bare-faced. It improves the texture of sun-damaged skin, minimises fine lines and softens deep wrinkles. It works wonders for ageing skin, but you can also get a peel if you just want a clean slate.
