As if dreading the winter months ahead, my skin has been looking dull, saggy and tired – cue the dark bags under my eyes and lacklustre complexion. My solution? I’ve started myself on a new regime from Filorga, the French laboratory known for its advanced, skin-saving products.
For my day cream, I use the Hydra Filler Pro-youth Boosting Moisturizer – a perfect base for makeup and a total wonder product to start your day right. The main ingredient, Hyaluronic acid, is an intense moisturizer that replenishes skin while deeply penetrating it with lipids. It also boosts production of collagen to plump skin instantly. It has a balm-gel texture with a matt finish, so it’s ideal for use morning or night.
Before bed, I slather a layer of the Sleep & Peel Resurfacing Night Cream onto my skin. The “boosting” cream works to renew cells and soften skin – by morning, the results are evident as my skin is buttery soft and clear. I’ll spare you the scientific jumble, but the formula includes six types of hydroxyacids which work to exfoliate while you sleep and boost skin with antioxidants. Added algae works to lighten complexion, while adding anti-ageing benefits.
As a special treat for my skin, the Meso-Mask Anti-wrinkle Lightening Mask is an instant pick-me-up. Not only does it give skin an immediate glow, but it works below the dermis to treat wrinkles and erase signs of tiredness. Ingredients called rhamnose and polysaccharide soothe irritations and even complexion for a fresh, healthy glow. Twenty minutes with this mask is my new Sunday afternoon ritual!
Finally, the Hyal-Defence Hyalurionic Acid Protection Serum is a must-have for women on the go. It’s jam-packed with active ingredients that protect skin while leaving it silky and smooth. It restores elasticity and protects against harmful UV rays and pollution – thanks to a cocktail or antioxidant ingredients. Apply it morning or evening, before your day or night cream, to preserve your skin’s youth.
My results so far? Numerous colleagues have commented on my ‘dewy glow’ every morning and are curious to know my secret. My response? Filorga.
