The skin is the largest organ of the body, so it’s no surprise that it reflects more about our lifestyle than we would care to admit. Complexion looking a little pallid of late? The culprit is most likely the extra couple of cigarettes you’ve been smoking to combat stressful days in the office. Blotchy and dry? A telltale sign of too many late nights drinking espresso martinis, rather than ample amounts of rest and rehydration.
Of course, there are pharmaceutical means of concealing such behaviour – make-up covers a multitude of sins and dark circles – but the fact remains that nothing beats a good skincare regime to counteract the effects of unhealthy habits. This peach-tinted exfoliating mask by Dr. Sebagh will lift away more than just dead skin cells; its twice weekly application results in a life-changing glow that will fool everyone into thinking you’ve taken up bikram yoga and a plant-based diet. A ‘brand new you’ can be achieved in the space of ten minutes, it seems.
