Liz Earle: the Key to Great Skin

Wednesday, November 7th 2012 1

My regular readers will know that I use Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish religiously.

Since making it a part of my routine, I’ve seen my skin tone become more even, my spots have almost completely disappeared and my formerly oily skin is now under control. (See here for my complete review.)

For the past couple of weeks, I have been exploring more of the brand and have found two more brilliant products that I’d recommend trying in the winter months.

Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask

Designed to hydrate and sooth dry skin, this treatment mask is just the thing to have to hand during the change of season. The mask is creamy, smooth and fairly thick, much like the Cleanse & Polish in texture. Apply a small amount to the face and neck (a 20p sized amount is plenty for me) and remove with a muslin cloth after 10-15 minutes. What I love about this mask is that, unlike lots of hydrating treatments, it leaves no oily residue but skin still feels quenched and plump. With this in mind, I’ve found it useful to use at any time of day; it would be great to give your skin a boost before a night out without leaving excess oil on the skin. Although the recommended treatment time is 10-15 minutes, I have slept in this on a couple of occasions. Upon waking, skin will feel soft and balmy.

Superskin Concentrate

For a great night’s sleep and an ultimate repair treatment, use this Superskin Concentrate a couple of times a week. Feeling in texture like a mix between an oil and a serum, this treatment is filled with 100% pure plant oils and is a relaxing night-time treat. Apply this to cleansed skin in circular motions, taking time to really massage it in. There are lots of oils in the formula so I like to apply it to slightly damp skin, locking in a bit more moisture. In the morning you’ll find that your skin is deeply hydrated, and still slightly dewy from the treatment. Ingredients such as rose hip oil are also great for helping to reduce the appearance of blemishes and scars.

Tip: the aromatic scent will aid a peaceful sleep; be sure to inhale deeply as you apply.

Whether you’re new to Liz Earle or a long-time fan, I would really recommend trying one of these treatments to ease your skin in this transition of seasons.
