Three Winter Skincare Wonders
As the weather takes a turn and the mercury falls, now is the time to switch up your beauty routine with products designed to protect skin from the elements and deliver brighter, radiant and soothed skin.
zk’in is a new high performance skincare brand from Australia that combines natural and organic actives with clinical results.
Formulated with organic fucoidan (Maritech Reverse) extracted from Brown Seaweed found in pristine Tasmanian waters, and proven to naturally inhibit skin degrading enzymes and the glycation process, the Brightening & Hydrating Masque delivers firmer smoother skin by impeding skin breakdown while preserving natural collagen resulting in an enhanced complexion.
The unique antioxidants found in organic Cocoa smooth the skin and improve circulation to temporarily brighten the complexion, while organic Aloe Vera Juice and organic Glycerine increase hydration to restore your skin’s glory.
Use once or twice weekly after exfoliation, morning or night by applying a thin, even layer to face and neck. Leave for 10 minutes before removing with a wet cloth compress. COSMOS Organic certified.
zk’in Brightening & Hydrating Masque (£29.90 – lovelula.com)
(£35 – therapi.com)
Created by British beekeeper Tanya Hawkes, Therapi leads the charge in honey skincare with their luxurious range.
The ‘hero’ product is the Ultra Radiance Cream, a gorgeously rich formula that leaves skin soft, dewy and deeply moisturised.
Rich in skin rejuvenating propolis – a natural antioxidant which also promotes elastin and collagen synthesis – the cream is especially effective for more mature skin types, and as a weekly anti-ageing night-time treatment for younger skin.
For best results, apply to thoroughly cleansed skin by gently ’tapping’ onto the face with fingertips in the morning, or as an overnight treatment.. Therapi is a Soil Association certified brand.
zk’in Soothing Hand Cream
(£9.95 – lovelula.com)
Nourish and soothe irritated hands with the natural hard-working ingredients and clinically proven skin repair actives found in zk’in’s Soothing Hand Cream.
The key ingredient is Organic Cotton Thistle extract (Gatuline® Skin Repair Bio), which promotes deep skin regeneration, replenishes strength and encourages skin repair.
Fast absorbing organic cocoa butter provides a dual-acting protective lipid layer to reduce water loss and weather damage, whilst high levels of Vitamin E and Oleic and Stearic Acids further improve moisture retention, skin flexibility and repair. The ancient healing and protective properties of organic Colloidal Oatmeal relieve inflammation and itchiness while shielding the skin.
In clinical trials, daily use for 7 days showed a 30% reduction in epidermal water loss. COSMOS Organic certified.
