Spring Beauty

Nothing says spring-clean like a bit of pampering, and nothing says pampering like treating yourself to some new products. Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you and tried out these fabulous few..

Hylamide by Deciem, SubQ Skin, £18

Now, we’ve all heard of the Ordinary, but have you heard of Hylamide, Deciem’s mid range skincare brand? Hylamide products still stem from Deciem’s science based techniques, but provide you with one stop combinations of ingredients to target your skin’s needs, and the results are very visible.

We tried SubQ Skin, a highly active concentrate of advanced hyaluronic complexes, next-generation peptides and biotechnologies to target rehydration, while improving the look of lines, wrinkles and textural damage. Ingredients include: Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, Next-generation pro-collagen Swiss technology for overall improvement in visible skin health and visible skin age and Nonapeptide-3 Retino-Complex, a novel technology that promotes better visible anti-aging results than Retinol with less irritation. Perfect!

Osmosis Beauty Stemfactor – Growth Factor Serum, £121.50

The clinically proven and technologically advanced Growth Factor Serum by Osmosis utilises patented methods to feed stem cells and fibroblasts to replenish the skin’s shortage of growth factors and proteins. This improves all aspects of ageing and damage by encouraging the skin’s repair process and stimulating new cell development for youthful skin.

The growth factors found in serums, gels, and creams are either bioengineered in a laboratory, or culled from human stem cells — but not necessarily human skin stem cells. Stem cells from any source — skin, fat, bone marrow, umbilical cord — can produce growth factors that give rise to a variety of different cell types in the body. They take cues from the surrounding tissue to become those types of cells, so if you put them on the skin, they help generate new skin cells; hence, younger-looking skin.”

No1 Illume Silk Exfoliating Glove, £15.99

The No1 Illume Glove was born out of lockdown by an accountant who became frustrated with dry skin, and lack of natural products in the UK to tackle the problem. Using 100% intricately woven silk viscose, the N°1 Illume glove will effortlessly exfoliate, purify and energise your skin. This ancient ritual of deep exfoliation and detoxification originates from the bath houses of Turkey (Hammams) and is known to brighten dull, dry skin and improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and cellulite. The N°1 Illume glove will remove dead skin cells on the surface (using a ‘peeling’ effect) along with unclogging pores. When used once a week, the N°1 Illume glove will help to maintain the equilibrium of your skin. Say goodbye to lacklustre skin and hello to a gorgeous, healthy glow!
