One of the most common skincare complaints that we’re asked about is acne. Many of us suffer from these irritating little blemishes which mark the skin and leave long-term scarring – and most of us who have acne want to find a way to treat it and repair some of the damage.
If this sounds familiar then the Cosrx Acne Removal Skincare Set could be your hero, offering not just one product to help get rid of blemishes and spots, but a whole new routine that will give your skin a new lease of life.
The set is made up of several different types of acne patch to treat your pimples directly, as well as a gently daily cleanser designed to target the causes of your skincare troubles. Let’s take a look at each of the products in turn and see how they could benefit your skin.
Heatwaves are one of the best parts of a classic British summer: long days when you can sit out in the garden or a local park and make the most of the sun. It's easy to get carried away though, and aside from dehydration or heat exhaustion the main thing that you need to protect yourself against is sunburn.
The signs of sunburn can start to appear in as little as 15 minutes. And, despite the common myths and misconceptions, you can still be affected by the sun even if it's later in the day or you have a darker skin tone. You can also get burned through glass, with many people getting sunburn during long car journeys or flights.
Derma rolling is a simple and effective way of encouraging healthy new skin tissue to form, improving the skin’s natural production of collagen (important for keeping your face looking young) and reducing the appearance of marks such as wrinkles and acne scars.
It's done by rolling rows of fine needles over your face, puncturing the skin slightly to address common complaints such as scarring and aging.
While it's possible to go to the salon for derma rolling treatments, it's also something that you can do yourself at home, with needles of up to 1.5mm. This will go deep enough to reduce wrinkles, break down scar tissue and fade patches of discoloration or damage from the sun.
Sick of waking up in the morning with puffy, inflamed looking skin? There are lots of things that can cause puffiness around the face – everything from diet to not getting enough sleep – but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it.
Massage rollers can be used to gently drain the lymphatic system, a part of your body which contains fluid and can lead to the appearance of puffiness.
Face rolling also improves the circulation, which means that more nutrients and more oxygen can get to your skin. This is important because it helps you to get that fresh, healthy looking glow.
Many people suffer from skin complaints around the eyes. Modern life often means that we’re not getting as much sleep as we need – and this leads to dark circles and bags as well as puffiness and a general tired look. The skin under our eyes is also affected by the aging process, starting to sag and wrinkle as we get older.
It’s easy enough to address these issues if you reach for the right eye cream or gel. We have a great range of different eye products available, using different luxury ingredients to target specific concerns. Here are five of our favourites.
Puffiness around the eyes is one of the most common skin complaints that we hear. A big night out with too little sleep or a few too many beverages can easily lead to short term puffiness that makes your skin look dull and tired.
And even if you look after your skin well, the natural aging process can eventually lead to increased puffiness as well as other eye complaints such as dark circles and bags.
If you’re struggling with puffy eyes, then drinking more water and getting more sleep could help. You can also consider using a cooling eye patch to quickly treat the problem and dramatically improve the appearance of the skin.

What plans do you have for post-lockdown life? With the government’s ‘stay at home guidance’ lifted and more attractions starting to reopen, it’s starting to look like there will be plenty of opportunities to get out and about with your family this summer.
It also seems like there will be a lot more potential for international travel later this year – so although it’s a little early to start jetting off to sunny beaches, it’s definitely something that we can start to plan for.
Hyaluronic acid has been a hot beauty product for a couple of years now, but something about the idea of putting acid onto the skin still puts a lot of people off!
Well, don’t let the name deceive you – hyaluronic acid is actually an incredible ingredient that can help to improve the texture and overall condition of the skin.
We’re here to answer some of the most common hyaluronic acid questions, and explain how you can incorporate it into your routine.
When it comes to understanding how skincare products benefit your skin, some are more obvious than others. It’s obvious how cleansers, moisturisers and exfoliators are going to help you improve the quality of your skin, but many of us are still unsure about what toners, serums, essences and ampoules are.
We’re going to take a look at each in turn, so that you can understand the unique benefits to your skin – and how they differ from one and other.
Remember, a skincare routine can consist of as many or as few of these products as you feel your skin needs. Playing around with different products and ingredients is a great way to find a routine that works for you.
