Getting your skin photo-ready this Christmas is essential as the party season gets well and truly underway. Capturing the special moments, whether planning lots of time at home with family and friends or ready to go out and party and celebrate with friends, may mean it's time to switch up your skincare routine to ensure your skin is camera-ready this year.
Step 1: Cleanse
The first step to any skincare routine, especially one that involves getting photo-ready skin, is to cleanse your skin properly. Starting with a clean canvas will ensure that the rest of your skincare routine will work more effectively. Also, you will find that your makeup will apply more easily and look better when applied to clean skin.
Ultra Calming Cleanser is suitable for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. It's an effective cleanser that removes dirt, excess oils and makeup while helping to support the skin's natural protective barrier. During the winter, with our skin exposed to colder weather, protecting the skin's barrier is essential for healthy skin.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is key for you to bring the radiance back to your skin. Removing dead skin cells will give you brighter, glowing skin and help ensure your pores don't get clogged up, reducing potential breakouts.
Ultra Granule-C Microfoliant transforms from a cream to a serum, with granules of absorbable pure Vitamin C that melt into the skin as you massage it in, leaving your skin brighter, more luminous and refined. It also contains Tocopherol, a form of vitamin E that supports a healthy skin barrier.
Step 3: Target your skin concerns
This step will involve different products depending on your skin concern. For example, if you want to target the signs of aging, Ultra A Perfecting Serum would be the perfect serum to add to your skincare routine. It's enriched with retinol, a marine algae and peptides to plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ultra Brightening Serum is for those who want to treat their dull and uneven complexion. It has a complex of brightening ingredients and exfoliators to even out the skin tone and give brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
Step 4: Hydrate
Hydration is vital for plump, youthful-looking skin and will help keep your skin hydrated and maintain a healthy skin barrier. Ultra Moisturiser Cream is suitable for all skin types. It contains Provitamin B5 and Shea Butter to increase the skin's ability to retain water, antioxidant Vitamin E and Sodium Hyaluronate to support the skin's hydration. This step is essential to achieve photo-ready skin this festive season.
Step 5: Protect
No morning skincare routine should be without sun protection. There are many outdoor Christmas festivities to enjoy; whether it's sunny or cloudy, protecting your skin from UV damage is essential.
Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF50 Hydrating is ideal for those with normal to dry skin, while Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF50 Mattifying is aimed at those with oily, combination skin. Both offer protection from UVA and UVB rays to help prevent premature skin ageing and are lightweight and non-whitening on the skin.
