Q. Hi Alison, I use all Elemis products and believe I have a good skin care routine however my skin looks a bit grey recently :0( can u suggest anything for me?
A. Try the Tri-Enzyme range in Elemis as it's specifically designed to help with brightness and smoothness. Key products would be the Tri-Enzyme Wash, used every day as a secondary cleanser (which is brilliant with Clarisonic too to increase the results).
Use the Tri-Enzyme Mask 2-3 times a week when it tingles on the skin (which is when your skin is at its greyest or dullest) and just once a week or every other week when it doesn't tingle and your skin is at its brightest.
Q. I'm 31 and have pretty good skin generally save for one really prominent 'number 11' ('number 1?!') line on my forehead and pores which are starting to become more prominent on my cheeks. I have an oily T zone and pretty normal skin everywhere else (save a few congested areas along the jawline). Just wondered – anything you can recommend for my 'number 1' line, and something for the pores?
A. If you have a good skincare routine then I'd recommend the Clarisonic System to use with your products in the bath or the shower as it has a fantastic exfoliating and skin-smoothing action which aids complete skin beauty.
However, if you don't have a good skincare beauty routine, I would recommend the Lulu Cleanser with the Dermawarfare Night Time Serum - these will work on these issues to get you started with results in accordance with a routine.
Q. Can you recommend an effective neck treatment – started to see signs of ageing and am panicking!
A. The one that gives the quickest result and perhaps is the best value would be the Prai ageless throat cream - use morning and night and then you can judge the results and the improved texture of your skin to see if you want to stay with this product long term.
Also remember to take all of your cleansing, toning and exfoliating routine all the way down to just above the nipple area. Your body exfoliating routine should go all the way up to just under the neckline.
