Fight dehydration

WOMEN often suffer from dry skin caused by air-conditioning, pollution and heat. Dehydrated skin appears flaky and, if left untreated, can settle into fine lines leading to deep wrinkles.

Garnier’s Aqua Defense skincare is designed to help boost moisture levels and keep skin hydrated all day long. The star of the range is the Non-Stop Moisturizing Essence, a moisturiser with a fresh, gel texture and a fruity fragrance.

The range also features a cleansing foam, toner, body lotion and eye care in the form of an eye-roll on.

Available at leading pharmacies.

Luscious lips

FOLLOWING the success of Revlon’s Beyond Natural Skin matching Makeup and Smoothing Primer, the Beyond Natural Collection has been extended to include Beyond Natural Protective Liptint SPF15.

The products work together to diffuse imperfections and highlight your best feature for a naturally glamorous look. Due to the lightweight formulas and soft, coordinated shades, your face comes off looking flawless. The Liptint provides beautiful colour, moisturising shine and sun protection for lips. The four shades are pink, rosy, berry and deep berry.

Available at leading department stores and pharmacies.
