“A good, smart skin routine has a healthy dose of hydration.”

For Skin Therapist Diandra Politano, Skinimalism’s renewed focus on quality and texture is about celebrating our skin in all of its beautiful glory. For those who are time-poor when it comes to makeup, refining your skincare routine could be the beauty revival you’re looking for. The essence of lacklustre skin is so often dehydration, something Diandra says affects most people, even those with oily skin types. Beginning your routine with a healthy dose of hydration will create the right foundation to build upon. A favourite of beauty expert Eleanor Pendleton’s, SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence is perfect at prepping the skin to better receive the rest of your routine, working to refine its texture and help with clarity.

When it comes to creams, Diandra recommends starting your application at the eye. With the dermis around the eye being more delicate it’s important to give it special attention. The trick with a successful application of eye cream is that you don’t use too much, and don’t apply it too close to the eye says Diandra. Eleanor is a fan of La Prairie’s White Caviar Extraordinaire and its inbuilt applicator, making for an easy lymphatic massage and a moment of luxury.

“Massage is so good for the microcirculation in our skin, it helps keep everything moisturised and clear.”

If you’re looking for a little extra treatment, look to Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Eye & Lip Contour Cream. Doubling as an eye and lip treatment, Diandra suggests applying a thicker layer overnight for a mask-like effect that’s absolutely beautiful on the lips. Finally, for a glow that goes the distance, Diandra emphasises the importance of massage when applying moisturiser. With massage being amazing for microcirculation, consider it your key to keeping your skin clear. When working with the incredible texture of Sisley’s Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream, ensure you work from the inner face to the outer edges as you bask in its sensorial appeal.
