Facial oils and serums

Image credit:

THE CHANGE in weather often means it’s time to shake up your beauty regime.

Seasonal changes means that the skin needs that extra bit of TLC. Daily moisturising is a must throughout the year, but for that little bit extra, a facial oil or serum will keep your skin hydrated all through the cold winter months.

Using a facial oil or serum at home – in upward movements to prevent sagging and to ensure the product penetrates deep into the skin – will give you that sumptuous post-spa feeling of relaxation, while also seeing and feeling the benefits on both mind and body.

Chantelle Azille looks at the best products on the market for all budgets.
