BEAUTIFY: Truth Serum

Now that it is achingly cold and constantly dark, I get to whip out my annual skin-saver recommendations – and this one from Ole Henriksen is a particular treat: their hero product, the Truth Serum Collagen Booster.
I smoke and I live in smoggy London – two factors that actively compound a decline in vitamin C in skin. Unfortunately, vitamin C is heavily involved in the production of collagens which help keep your skin firm and smooth, so it’s fairly important to me to artificially administer some into my face.

This collagen booster is Vitamin-C-heavy, alongside containing purifying astringents of grapefruit and green tea (which help prevent breakouts and brighten your skin). It also has plenty of vitamin E and rosehip extract, which helps to nurture angry winter skin.

I have been keeping my radiators on full – and as a painful consequence, the air in my home is as dry as a bone. This manifests in gross dryness on my face which is salved by serums, which can penetrate deeper into the layers of your skin than a regular moisturizer for ultimate effect. Grease-free and smooth to apply with no post-absorption stickiness, this serum has been my salvation for the past few winters. Plus, it smells like rubbing orange sherbet on your face: festive and delicious.
