It’s that time of year again. The festive season has come and gone, as has your skin’s hydration levels. A mulled wine too many teamed with a bit of extra sugar has probably left your skin feeling dehydrated and suffering from inflammation and congestion. It’s time to get your skin back on track and help to rebuild that skin barrier.

Fear not, as IMAGE have the perfect SOLUTION and RESOLUTION for you. IMAGE have gone ahead and made it simple for you and broken it down into 5 simple steps for you to follow to achieve that New Year rejuvenation! Your skin changes with every season, and it’s important to leave all your skin concerns with the professional for accurate diagnosis. Remember folks – we’re dealing with cosmeceutical here, with advanced ingredients and unparalleled patented delivery systems. So, to really get the most out of your skincare, it is important to be using the right products for your specific skin type.

The best way to do this of course is to go to a salon or clinic for a skincare consultation and get the Image trained facialist to put a plan in place.

STEP 1: Cleanse it off!

First and foremost. A good cleanser is the bones of all effective skincare routines. Think of it this way… how are all those good ingredients meant to penetrate skin if it is full of pollutants, sebum and other debris? It’s like taking a dry cloth to a dirty car! The Ageless Total Facial Cleanser (RRP €36.00) exfoliates, gently removes makeup, and tones for ultimate skin balance. It contains Glycoloc acid which thoroughly cleanses the skin and removes all impurities so that it is ready to take on any ingredients applied post cleanse. An exfoliating cleanser will really help to slough off those ghosts of Christmas past. Make sure to cleanse morning and night!

Step 2: Serum, Serum, Serum!

Once the skin is thoroughly cleansed, it’s time for your serum. An opportunity to pack the skin full of active ingredients. The New Year is the perfect time to add a multivitamin to the skin. The Vital C ACE Serum (RRP €87.00) is perfect for this. Boost hydration and radiance in the skin while packing a serious antioxidative punch!

Step 3: S – P – F!

If we have said this one, we have probably said it a million times. There is no point in using all of these amazing, anti – ageing, antioxidative ingredients if we are not going to protect the skin from something that is actually helping cause the damage. Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. Rain, hail or shine. The sun rises every morning and sets every evening folks, so don’t be fooled! Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. The IMAGE Skincare Prevention + SPF 30 (RRP €47.50) is perfect to protect the skin and is also packed full of anti – ageing and antioxidative ingredients.

Step 4: A shot a day, keeps the wrinkles away!

The final step is making sure you take that 360° approach and ensure you are feeding your skin from the inside out. The YANA™ daily collagen supplement (RRP €99.00) is everything your skin needs to restore collagen and flood the skin with hydration. It also helps to enhance the benefits from the rest of your topical skincare products.
