As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realised the value in really tailoring my skincare to suit my skin’s needs. It sometimes isn’t enough just to say ‘my skin is dry’ or ‘it’s irritable’ but getting to treat it on a day to day basis is something I’m trying to improve. Thankfully, Irén Skincare is making it so much easier with their line up of super serums, which allow to you to really cater to what your skin is needing. With seven serums to choose from, tackling everything from dullness to congestion, Irén Skincare has become my secret weapon in combatting winter skin.
The Irén Skincare Keep Calm Serum is an absolute lifesaver when it comes to keeping skin calm and happy. Every few weeks I treat myself to a micro dermalbrasion facial, which leaves my skin super clear, but it’s a little pink afterwards, so smoothing on a few drops of the Keep Calm Soothing Serum is perfect for keeping my skin as happy and as healthy as possible. It also means I can really enjoy the benefits of my treatment without worrying about covering any redness.
The Irén Quench-Up serum is probably my favourite. Naturally, I’ve got skin which can feel a bit dried out pretty easily. This only gets worse in the winter thanks to the cold, wind, and central heating, so I’m always looking for products which can give my skin the extra pep it needs. Like all Irén products, the Quench-Up serum is completely vegan and cruelty-free. Not only that, but they’re paraben and alcohol free too, so when you apply them to clean skin, you get all the benefits! It’s especially important in formula of serums like Quench-Up, which has 12 super moisturising ingredients ranging from Blueberry Extract to Hyaluronic Acid to seriously address any dryness you might be experiencing.
When it comes to breakouts, I’m pretty lucky. For 3 1/2 weeks out of 4, I don’t really worry about spots, but I do find that hormonal outbreaks happen pretty much like clockwork – which is exactly where Irén’s Skin Reboot Serum comes in. A powerful antioxidant serum, which is gentle on skin, the serum contains Beetroot Extract to aid in skin renewal, 4% Caffeine to soothe skin and prevent puffiness, whilst Astaxanthin (which can be found in microalgae) contains more antioxidants and is significantly more potent that Vitamin C and E. It also protects skin against blue light damage – so for someone who spends 99% of their life in front of a computer, it’s a godsend.
Irén Skincare serums are priced at £30 each, and are available to by from the Lone Design Club here.
