Cold weather and theconstant in-and-out from heated and unheated places truly does a number on your skin. The biggesteffect is that skin dries out, which in turn leads to flakiness, tightness, and more pronounced wrinkles and fine lines. If you want to keep a glow year-round, you have to be proactive about hydration, and we make it easywith these professional picks for this festive season and beyond from IMAGE Skincare.



ORMEDIC Lip Enhancement Complex RRP €27.50

The worst thing that can happen with lipstick isn’t an unflattering colour—it’s chapped lips. Unlike the skin on your face and body, your lips aren’t protected by layers upon layers of skin. There’s only one thin, transparent layer, which is why they’re relatively more pink. This delicate nature of your pout is what makes them so prone to dryness.

Our ORMEDIC balancing lip enhancement complex instantly infuses lips with soothing hydration with fatty-acid-rich avocado oil while creating a glossy barrier to prevent water evaporation.

On top of that, the ORMEDIC balancing lip enhancement complex is an excellent lip primer. Because it physically “fills in” the small crevices in lips and improves the appearance of lip contours, it helps lipstick glide on seamlessly, giving you the perfect Christmas pout.

I MASK Hydrating Hydrogel Sheet Mask RRP €45 (pack of 5)

Skin can easily become dull and fatigued from harsh weather, lack of sleep and regular exposure to pollution. This hydrating mask can help reduce all visible signs of exhaustion and dullness by packing a punch of moisture that will help revive skin with amino acids, aloe vera, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is especially great because it holds 1,000 times its weight in water and helps keep skin plump, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. The hydrogel designs also fits better onto the contours of the face, ensuring a firm grip.

ORMEDIC Balancing Eye Lift Gel RRP €51.50

The ORMEDIC Balancing Eye Lift Gel is especially great for dry, very delicate skin. It is soothing and nourishing, and packed with quinoa extract that visibly de-puffs undereye bags to make them less prominent. Hydration is improved while skin appears more relaxed and rejuvenated. With increased hydration, fine lines also become less visible and less prominent.
