 Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream.

We all know that in the summer, while our skin gets a little browner, it also gets a LOT drier. A cocktail of chlorine, sun, heat, humidity and deadly hotel air conditioning can be very harmful to our skin, drying it out and eventually, with constant sun exposure, causing DNA damage and a decrease in elastin and collagen, leading to deeply set wrinkles and extremely dry skin. So, in the summer months, it is crucial to use both SPF and moisturiser, focusing particularly on the most sensitive and delicate areas of the body such as the face, neck and décolleté. One of the most sensitive areas on the body is the skin under and around your eyes which is prone to wrinkling and sagging, especially if not properly cared for. The new ‘Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream’ is great for soothing and brightening but has particularly amazing hydrating qualities as it is made with dimethicone, hyaluronic acid and grape-seed oil which help prevent water loss from the skin, leaving it feeling smooth, plump and energised. Oh, and it is also extremely affordable, so feeling good doesn’t have to break the bank! Available now from UK drugstores.


2.Burts’s Bees Micellar Cleansing Towelettes.

Micellar water has been all the rage recently. But micellar water in a face wipe?! Who knew make-up removal could be so easy?
