We are nearly there now, almost into the light of spring! Typically skin is looking tired and in need of pepping up around March & April time, so make brightening and energising your focus this month to get your skin feeling like spring has sprung (even if the weather still has to catch up!).Dull skin needs two things: gentle exfoliation to remove dead cells and energising ingredients to brighten and give back its natural bloom.
Interestingly it is our antioxidant ingredient category that provides us with brilliant energising effects and because antioxidants also act as anti-inflammatories, these ingredients are suitable even if your skin has been left sensitive by the colder weather. See below for the best products and treatments to brighten up tired skin:Medik8® Vitamin C RangeWith a formula to suit all skin types, these clinical Vitamin C products are ideal to boost results for a range of skin conditions such as photo-damage and hyperpigmentation.
