Beauty spot: The latest skincare launches

Now February 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.

Harborist's Hyper-Gentle Balm-Gel Cleanser

Great for use on combination or oily skin types, Harborist's popular product is also great for removing make-up and sunscreen at the end of the day. Formulated with camellia and jojoba seed oils, simply add a splash of water to the gel to transform it into a thin milk. It's vegan-friendly and made without added fragrance or essential oils too.

Skin Proud's Proud Pods

If you haven't tried out squalene yet, there's no time like the present. Made with 100 per cent plant-based squalene, these serum capsules are ideal for use when travelling. After cleansing, open one of the ampoules and then distribute the contents evenly across the face and neck, once per day, followed by a layer of moisturiser.

Dreem Distillery's Moonlit Mask

When skin seems particularly dry, a face mask is often the key to restoring hydration. Made with broad-spectrum CBD, bakuchiol oil, willow bark extract, and kaolin, this indulgent product is packed full of nourishing goodness for even the driest of complexions. Following your usual skincare routine, apply a thin layer of the indulgent mask to the face and neck prior to bedtime and wake up looking fresh-faced in the morning.

BEAUTYPRO's VITAMIN-C Brightening Sheet Mask

Love a sheet mask but don't like the plastic associated with traditional offerings? BEAUTYPRO has the answer. The brand has just unveiled a face mask line which comes in 100 per cent biodegradable packaging, while the sheet mask itself is constructed with biodegradable bamboo fibres. For those needing a quick pick-me-up, the vitamin C option is a good choice, as it is formulated with energising blueberry, yuzu citrus, and sea buckthorn extracts.
