When beauty magazine Allure announced in August that it would cease using the term “anti-ageing,” citing the fact that “growing older is something that should be embraced and appreciated,” the idea was widely celebrated by many in the industry.
With pollution, increased sun exposure, and acne to name but a few things ravaging our skin daily, a lot of us are now looking for coverage with a little more clout than our go-to BB cream. Enter CC creams. They have the same sheer coverage and impressive skincare benefits of a BB, but boast the added benefit of colour correction, which means they're the ultimate weapon against an uneven complexion peppered with blemishes, acne scars, redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dullness.
Is your face ready for the festive season? In the same way that we switch from t-shirts to woolly jumpers, your skin and beauty routine need seasonal swaps, too.

When the temperature drops, the last thing any of us want to do post-shower is stand around massaging in body lotion - brrr. That's where body oils come in. Twice as good at preventing moisture from evaporating from the skin (take that, central heating), they've come a long way since the greasy, sticky formulas we once knew. With nourishing but fast-absorbing ingredients like rose otto, grapeseed and coconut, not to mention stunning fragrances to rival your designer perfume collection (move over, Chanel Gabrielle), the beauty sphere's new breed of luxury oils pretty much blows any other all-over body moisturiser out of the water.
If we only had to pick one skincare product to take on a desert island, it would be moisturising cream. Moisturiser is essential for any skin type – even the oily ones. Especially with cold weather on the way, choosing your daily moisturiser is like choosing your daily armour.
We all know we need to wear SPF cream in the summer, but what about in the winter? The sun still shines (on occasion), so surely we should still protect our skin?
