Skincare Q&A

Environmental elements wreak havoc on your skin. This month, our dermatologist answers your top 3 skin care questions

Q: How can I eradicate dark circles under my eyes? Z. Soll

Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard: Some of the eye creams available can act instantly to refresh the eye area and give a tightening effect. This usually lasts for a short time and so ideally an eye cream needs additional ingredients, such as moisturizing and anti-ageing ones too. Creams with a bit of sparkle will play visual tricks and make the skin appear brighter than it really is.

Q: As I get older, my skin is starting to lose its luminosity. Can you recommend any good products to combat this? N. Watson

Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard: I would recommend trialling New Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Cream as significantly improves skin appearance and tone. It contains a mixture of skin-loving ingredients, such as Niacinamide, which blocks the visual appearance of melanin, the pigment in our skin. It also contains N-acetyl glucosamine, or NAG, which further improves skin tone. So Olay Regenerist Luminous fades dark spots on the skin and these results can be seen in just 8 weeks.

Q: There’s so many anti-ageing products out there, making it hard to choose and stick to one regime. What are the best ingredients to look for anti-ageing? L. Jacques

Dermatologist, Ginny Hubbard: 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 moisturizing ingredient to make the skin look instantly smooth and to provide hydration throughout the day. Also look for ingredients with proven anti-ageing benefits, such as niacinamide in new Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Eye Swirl. This cream also has an iridescent shine, so it makes the skin look and feel instantly better as well as giving long-lasting benefits.

The Silk-expert is a delight


My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
