ENERGY: THE NEW SKINCARE FRONTIERÂ
After years of talking about â€˜anti-ageingâ€™, the beauty industry is putting a positive spin on skincare â€“ with products that promise to revive skinâ€™s energy and reverse the signs of a busy modern lifestyle.Â
Elemis Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser (Â£39.50, elemis.com) increases cellsâ€™ energy to â€˜switch the skin back onâ€™, refreshing it while also removing make-up.Â
For those who have been up all night partying or tending to their children, LancÃ´meâ€™s Energie de Vie range contains goji berries, gentian root and lemon balm oil â€“ similar to refuelling green juices for weary skin.Â
As the hero of the range, the Liquid Moisturiser (Â£28, lancome.co.uk) is an extraordinary elixir â€“ akin to velvety water â€“ that instantly leaves skin plumper and perkier each morning. Like plugging your skin in to charge up, Guerlain Midnight Secret Late Night Recovery Treatment (Â£20, houseoffraser.co.uk) contains ingredients that mimic the benefits of sleep â€“ and now comes with a new calming lavender scent and handy tube. Ideal for beating the jet-lagged look after holiday flights.
