Q&A: Beauty secrets for flawless skin

4 beauty secrets for youthful flawless skin


In winter, we can cheat our way to perfect skin with a heavier layer of makeup. But in the summer it’s  about going ‘au naturel’. Here our experts wade in on how to get  flawless skin.

Q: How can I hide my dark circles?

A: Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard, comments: ‘Dark circles are caused by a combination of genetics, ageing and lifestyle factors, including lack of sleep, poor diet, smoking and sun exposure. Dark circles tend to become more noticeable as we age because  the skin becomes thinner. Dry skin can make them look worse as rough patches will alter the way the skin reflects light so go for an eye cream with a little bit of sparkle that plays a visual luminising trick, as well one with instant tightening and moisturising benefits. I’d recommend Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl, RRP £29.99.’

Q: I’ve heard that Cleansing Brushes are very effective – any application tips on how to use one?

A: Olay and Celebrity Facialist, Anastasia Achilleos comments: ‘When using Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Cleansing System RRP £59.99 I noticed it helps to decongest the skin and help with dryness as it smooths and exfoliates the surface of the skin as well as deep cleansing. I recommend applying a comfortable pressure when using the brush, then use a little more pressure on the chin and nose areas, as these spots can hide makeup and dead skin that tends to cling onto skin.’

Q: I want to switch to a lighter makeup for summer – but how do I fade uneven spots on my skin so that it doesn’t need so much coverage?

A: Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard comments: ‘I’ve found that Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream RRP £29.99 helps improve skin appearance and tone. It contains a mixture of skin-loving ingredients which helps fade dark spots.’


Q: Do I really need a separate eye cream – won’t my moisturiser do?

A: Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard comments: ‘I would avoid using moisturisers that are not specifically formulated for the eye area, as these may be too heavy for the delicate eye area. Look for an eye cream with a good moisturising ingredient to help instantly smooth and hydrate throughout the day. Also, go for proven anti-ageing ingredients such as niacinamide, found in Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl RRP £29.99.
