Sometimes we just need a little extra something to deal with a pesky skin issue or protect us from environmental aggressors. Here are four targeted products we turn to again and again.
Helena Rubinstein Prodigy Cellglow The Intense Clarity Essence is powered by the brand’s signature active ingredients (Edelweiss native cells and Edelweiss extract), but has the added exfoliating benefits of glycolic acid and brightening benefits of Vitamin CG. We also found it makes a great hydrator, even for those of us with sensitive skin. helenarubinstein.com
Taking all the antioxidant and anti-ageing goodness of green tea and concentrating it into a patented Time Response Complex, the Amore Pacific Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule is a four-week treatment to improve everything from tone and clarity to smoothness and firmness. We noticed results within one week, and love the travel-friendly packaging. shop.amorepacific.com.hk
Unlike most of the products featuredon these pages, Caternap Nanotech Silk Sleeping Mask is not something to be applied directly to the skin. But it does still offer some impressive skincare and anti-ageing benefits, thanks to a unique nanotechnology delivery system. We’d still use it anyway, considering we fell in love with the mask’s silky goodness the first time we put it on during a long-haul flight. caternap.com
We’ve always been to told to take our vitamins and when it comes to skincare, Vitamin C reigns supreme. Omorvicza Daily Vitamin C is our choice for a stable and potent addition to our daily skincare regimen. The milky serum melts into skin, where it hydrates, protects and brightens all day long. joyce.com/beauty
