You’ll never catch me in a big fat jumper: too suffocating. Instead, I wear lots of thin layers, which is much more effective – and I apply the same ethos to my skincare.
I love layering. I appreciate not everyone has the patience, and really, it doesn’t come naturally to me. But the minute I take my foot off the pedal, I see the difference.
If the multilayered approach is too much of a faff, at least try a great exfoliator. I’m not talking grainy, somebody-please-ban-them scratchy scrubs. I mean skincare containing acids; those texture-refining, dead-skin-removing, brightening and pore-unclogging superstars such as glycolic, lactic, salicylic that you don’t need to wash off. Beauty Pie Plantastic Micropeeling Super Drops (£6.80 for members) is impressive. It’s a gentle daily-use skin refiner with a serum-like texture. And I normally turn my nose up at “natural” brands (an ambiguous term), but I love Herbivore. A note of caution: its Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion (£47) is initially tacky, so wait before applying another layer to avoid piling.
