Beauty spot: The latest skincare launches

Now January is well underway, it's a good time to think about switching up skincare routines.

Changes in the weather may have made your skin dry, or you may feel like your trusty old moisturiser just isn't doing the trick anymore.

Well, the good news is that a whole crop of excellent formulas is about to appear at your favourite beauty retailers. Read on for details.

REN Clean Skincare's Perfect Canvas Smooth, Prep & Plump Essence

A cross between a serum and a gel, this facial essence creates the perfect canvas for cosmetics during the day and moisturiser at night. Made with postbiotic bio-ferments and potent antioxidants, as well as hyaluronic acid, the essence will quickly become a favourite step in any skincare routine. For best results, apply three drops into the palms of the hands and gently pat onto a freshly cleansed face and neck.

Paula's Choice's 5% Niacinamide Body Serum

Tired of heavy moisturising lotions that take ages to sink in and feel sticky to the touch? Well, a body serum is the answer. Formulated with niacinamide and vitamin B5, the latest addition to the Paula's Choice collection tackles patchy tone and rough texture, and absorbs in mere moments. After cleansing and exfoliating, apply from the neck down.

COSRX's Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask

When it's not possible to book in for a facial, reach for this super hydrating overnight mask! Formulated with rice extract to provide intense nourishment, apply a pea-sized amount to the face following your regular skincare routine. Massage the product into the skin for better absorption and leave it on when going to bed.

IMAGE Skincare's ORMEDIC Balancing Antioxidant Serum

Featuring a blend of kakadu plum and beet root extracts, as well as organic grape water and hyaluronic acid, this serum is ideal for those struggling with dry patches or redness. With a delicate natural fruit scent, the product glides on smoothly and can be cocktailed with a night cream for an extra boost.
