Teresa Howard looks at facial trends

The best way to brighten dull winter skin is to have a facial. It will cleanse, tone and hydrate your skin and improve circulation, resulting in a youthful glow.

My personal favourite is a lymphatic facial, where a massage encourages all the toxins in our face to travel to our lymph nodes, which then carries the waste out of the body, and even leaves you looking 10lb lighter! if you are unsure which facial includes lymphatic massage, you can always enquire at the salon.

If you can’t make it to a spa these amazing potions are nothing short of wondrous:

With an energising infusion of kiwi and mulberry extracts, as well as glycolic acid, and powerful alpha hydroxy (aha), the refreshing gel formula refines the skin’s surface, providing a brighter, more radiant complexion. after four weeks the skin is more refined and skin tone more even.
