We've compiled the ultimate skincare guide to restore a youthful glow, whether you're enjoying a cosy month indoors or scheduling more socialising...

Step one:

After cleansing, pour 5-7 drops of Antioxidant Energising Essence into your palms and press into the skin. 

This refreshing essence provides a gentle exfoliation effect, and will increase absorption of the actives in products that follow. It will also reduce redness, calm skin and increase moisture within the skin.

PRO TIP: add the essence into your existing skincare routine a week before a big event for optimal results

Step two:

Apply the Celestial Black Diamond Eye Masks to firm and tighten the skin under your eyes. 

Packed with hyaluronic acid and a unique peptide complex they will hydrate and smooth whilst caring for the delicate under-eye area and are relied upon by celebrities as a quick fix for sparkling eyes.

PRO TIP: store in the fridge first and pep up tired eyes as you enjoy your favourite show or podcast

Step three:

Starting at the outer corner of the eye, use your ring fingers to gently pat on Eye Lift Gel NAC Y²™ moving upwards and sweeping over the brow bone then back to the outer corner until the product is fully absorbed. 

Dubbed ‘an eye lift in a bottle’ this clever gel formula targets the delicate skin under the eye with optimal hydration, ensuring your makeup won't sink into fine lines; ideal for the return to the office. Coffee silver skin extract cocoons moisture around the eyes whilst caffeine depuffs and awakens the delicate under-eye area for a younger-looking appearance.

PRO TIP: gently press the product into the skin under your eyes rather than rubbing, which can increase puffiness

Step four:

Apply 1-2 pumps of the Black Diamond Serum to the face and neck in an upwards motion. 

Working to sculpt and firm skin for a younger-looking and more hydrated appearance, this serum is enhanced by Dr Yannis’ signature Black Diamond Technology with Fine Black Diamond Powder to aid delivery of its potent actives. Your skin will be left feeling immediately softer with a refined texture as the silky serum melts in.

PRO TIP: concentrate the product especially on forehead and smile lines to ensure smooth and long-lasting makeup application

Step five:

The perfect skincare makeup hybrid, apply 2-4 drops of Rose Gold Radiance Booster to any area you wish to highlight or enhance glow. 

Ingredients including pure gold will transform tired-looking skin to a lit-from-within glow, with rose flower water to calm irritation and hydrate and niacinamide to soothe inflammation. The result? More even skin tone and a subtle lustre to create that sought-after dewiness. 

PRO TIP: pack in your bag and top up on cheekbones at your desk or during an event

Step six:

Complete your look with your chosen makeup or go bare faced and beautiful.
