Skincare Essentials Before Your First Night Out After Lockdown

The vaccination roll-out continues apace. Whilst we can’t be complacent, the nation is holding its breath to see if social restrictions will finally be lifted on 21st June. And what a national celebration that will be! For pubs, bars, restaurants, night-clubs and theatres, that day can’t come quick enough. And with the majority of the population forced to stay at home for months on end, one thing’s for sure, it will be the mother of all celebrations. 

Lockdown Lifting 2021

So, if you’re feeling excited about the prospect of cutting loose, it stands to reason that you’ll want to look your best. Now is the time to begin preparing for the big event. After all, you’ve been waiting such a long time. And for once, there’s no justification needed for treating your skin to luxury skincare products. Get set for a thoroughly pampering daily routine. You absolutely deserve it!

21st June Night Out

Here at skinstation, we stock the ultimate products to ensure that your skin is looking at its optimum. So, if the words clear, hydrated and youthful appeal to you, check out this season’s go-to products for that all-important first night out after lock-down.

5 Steps To Beautiful Skin

The Cleanser

Dr Barbara Sturm’s Cleanser gently clears the dermis, leaving it ready to absorb moisturisers and serums more efficiently. Suitable for all skin types, this contains Panthenol and Aloe Vera, re-known for their calming and soothing properties and anti-ageing Purslane which nourishes and enriches the skin.

Delivered via a foam, its ultra -convenient and simple to use. Spray a little foam into your palm, before smoothing over your face in circular movements, then rinse off. Skin feels purified and soft after use. With the added reassurance that this cleanser is free from parabens and mineral oils, it’s a splendid way to begin any skincare ritual.

The Toner

SuzanObagi Balancing Toner works a treat on eliminating excess oil and impurities, restoring the skin’s natural pH and diminishing enlarged pores. To help fight the signs of ageing, it contains a powerful combination of antioxidants, which also help to detoxify skin. 

Simultaneously, centuries old natural remedy witch-hazel works at reducing pore size and stabilising oil production to rid the skin of excess shine. Aloe also makes an appearance in this formulation because it’s so effective at soothing, hydrating and preventing over-drying. 

Oh! And another thing. This hypoallergenic toner smells incredible. Fresh and light with the scent of white grapefruit, subtly stimulating the senses, skin is left feeling fully refreshed and clean. 

The Exfoliator

Our skin works on a constant cycle of new skin cells emerging, whilst dead skin cells are shed. Not only that, but oil, sebum and dirt, builds up on top of skin too. This detritus can leave skin looking dull, rough and blemished. 

111Skin Clinical Exfoliator is a super-concentrated formula that uses enzymes (Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids aka AHAs) to gently dissolve the leftover residue that clogs up pores. Used as part of your evening routine, sleep whilst imperfections are cleared away. 

Calming botanicals naturally soothe and calm skin redness, inflammation, and sensitivity. Tego Natural Betaine is the perfect complement as it provides a boost of much needed hydration, always crucial after exfoliation. Skin is refined, retextured, wonderfully soothed and incredibly radiant after use

The Serum

Concerned about lines and wrinkles? This product has got your name all over it. SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF is the product of six years-worth of pain-staking research and development. But boy was it worth it!

Silymarin, an optimised concentration of milk thistle plant is the stand-out, hero ingredient in this formulation. Harnessing the incredible power of Vitamin C, it's able to target signs of ageing including loss of firmness, spots, or expression lines. There’s no doubt that this is a powerful, synergistic combination of antioxidants, and results are far superior to single antioxidant serums.

The Moisturiser

The big night’s looming and you’re in need of soft, nourished, glowing skin. Meet Obagi Daily Hydro Drops™ Facial Serum. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the essential pre-event hydrator for instant radiance. But hang on, normally, you’d opt for a moisturising cream. Switch off traditional thinking and try out this incredibly light and silky hydrating serum instead.

The supreme efficacy of this product is the result of powerful active ingredients. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), rich natural antioxidants, Abyssinian Oil and Hibiscus Oil and Omega-9 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids actively support and maintain the skin’s natural barrier function. Patented microfluidic Isoplentix™ technology means that each droplet is made individually and then its suspended to protect and preserve each ingredient in its purest form until the time of application. Forget dull, dehydrated skin and welcome radiant, smooth skin instead.
