How to: MAKE JET-LAGGED SKIN LOOK FRESH AGAIN
A day on the plane leaves a complexion tired, lacklustre and dry. Thankfully, an intensive facial can wake it up. “Any time you want to keep your skin healthy, it starts with thorough cleansing,” says Holly Sherrard, education manager at The International Dermal Institute Canada in Toronto. Melt away sebum and dirt with an oil-based product made for all faces, such as Dermalogica PreCleanse, $51, then follow with a wash that suits your skin type: clay-based if you’re oily; gel-based if you’re normal; and creamy or milky if you’re dry. Step 2: slough off dead cells. “Exfoliation can reveal the healthier, more luminous skin cells underneath.” FLARE pick: Nuxe Gentle Aromatic Exfoliant with 3 Roses, $31. Next, layer on a treatment masque souped up with the skin saviours you need: multivitamins for dull or sensitized skin; hyaluronic acid and vitamin E for dehydrated skin; or clay, biotin and caffeine for oily, acne-prone skin. Moisturize and—voilà—you’re back to your gorgeous self again.
