It’s high time for some serious self-love. Leaving behind toxicity, feeling good in your skin and taking care of your health are essential to living your best life. And we’re here to show you how.
Skincare is a good place to start off. When exposed to UV light and cold weather, or if you’re dealing with hormonal changes, problems tend to arise. This can vary from acne and excessive oil production to dryness, age spots and wrinkles. Tailoring your skincare routine accordingly is the only key to managing any skin care issue.
To make it that much easier for you to do, we met up with dermatologists and cosmetic doctors to reveal this season’s must-have products that they actually buy from Sephora.
Here’s their selection and what to use them for.
Dr. Antoni Calmon
French cosmetic doctor with clinics in Paris and London
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
It’s important not to overlook skin hydration when cleaning your face. A non-drying product like this balm will keep your skin moisturized while providing a soft makeup removal.
Dr. Slim Halouani
Tunis-based dermatologist and cosmetic doctor
Foreo LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush
This brush provides deep cleansing and is especially effective for removing heavy makeup.
Dr. Nancy Labib
Head of Dermatology and Aesthetic Department at the Medcare Medical Centres in Dubai
Sephora AHA Firming Sleeping Cream
This cream contains Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), one of the most important anti-aging compounds. It primarily exfoliates the skin and stimulates new cell formation which helps with underlying skin issues like wrinkles, age spots, discolouration and acne. Looking to have a smoother and brighter skin complexion, this one is your go-to.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate
This potent anti-ageing serum also contains Lactobacillus which is good bacteria that helps with acne prone and oily skin.
Dr. Labib and Dr. Calmon:
Sephora C+E Ultra Glow And Strengthening Serum
This combo of Vitamin C (protects the skin from free radicals) and Vitamin E (a very efficient moisturizer) is nourishing, hydrating and tightening. Both antioxidants work together to give a nice glow especially to those who are suffering from pale skin and a tired look.
OLE HENRIKSEN Banana Bright Eye Crème
Vitamin C is also known for treating vascular and pigmentary dark circles.
Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF50
This sunscreen is light and effortless to wear, dries nicely without leaving any greasy or white residue and is relatively affordable (you’ll be using it about three times a day if you live in the Middle East).
Dior Dreamskin Moist & Perfect Cushion SPF 50-PA+++
This is the perfect sun-block foundation. It adapts perfectly to all skin types and has an SPF50+ protection.
Estée Lauder Power Pair Discovery Set
The Advanced Night Repair serum and the Revitalizing Supreme Cell Power cream are your go-to duo for getting rid of wrinkles and sagginess.
Pixi Overnight Retinol Oil
This oil is perfect for improving the skin tone and texture whilst stimulating cell production. Use it only two to three times per week, to avoid thinning the skin.
La Mer The Moisturizing Cream
On evenings you are not using the Retinol oil, it’s preferable to focus on hydration. The Moisturizing Cream from La Mer is effective in repairing and regenerating the skin on a deep level.
Kérastase Genesis Serum Anti-Chute Fortifiant Hair Serum
Your go-to product to stop seasonal hair loss.
