Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle. Sleep, drink water, and treat your skin with happiness and some of these advanced serums.

If the skin beneath that layer of high-end cream/ moisturiser is dehydrated, the complexion can still  appear lacklustre and uncomfortable, no matter how much cream you apply. Conversely, hydrated skin that’s not adequately moisturised can still be flaky and rough. “The trick here is balance: your skin needs to be both hydrated and moisturised, and fort his, you need to assess your current regime,” say harrods beauty experts.

Toners and essences are key players in cleansing, not only in rebalancing the complexion after cleansing, but most importantly, also ensuring that subsequent steps can do their thing. As beauty adivers suggest, look to Suqqu, Natura Bissé and Dr. Barbara Sturm for their refreshing, soothing and de-stressing take on toning.

Application order plays its part too in ensuring all the products work to their best. “Additional moisturising benefits can be achieved by layering products with different textures as each is able to deliver different moisture-active ingredients to the skin,” Regine Barr, Director of Product at Eve Lom, told harrods.

“Always apply the thinnest product first, such as hyaluronic based essences or serums, as this will absorb faster than oils and creams,” added Margaret.
