Give yourself a boost in 2020

If your resolutions are anything like mine, it will include a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals for the New Year. Vitamins are not only taken orally, but so many products are now enriched with vitamins, minerals and good fats.

Vichy LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Ampoules deliver a potent shot of targeted action to fine lines and wrinkles simultaneously working to deliver smoother skin and strengthen skin’s natural defences against early alterations in the skin’s barrier.

Each LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Ampoule contains a powerful cocktail of actives and peptides, clinically proven to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and increase skin’s resistance against external stress factors.

Vichy Mineralizing Water strengthens skin’s natural defences with its unique composition of 15 skin-strengthening minerals. The airtight ampoule protects the complex of actives against UV rays, heat and oxidation so the formulation can be created without preservatives. No preservatives mean higher concentration of actives and higher concentration of actives means more efficacy. A ten pack retails at €30 while a 30 pack retails at €59.

To ensure that your skin doesn’t suffer from 'dry January' consider supplementing it with a booster serum. Novaexpert Omega Booster Serum (€56) is an effective moisturising and nourishing serum for the face. The anti-aging cocktail contains active vitamins and omega oils 3,6,7 and 9. The omega oil-based serum is absorbed immediately, leaving the skin velvety and deeply moisturised. It was by discovering the effects of vegetable oils with omegas on the atopic skin of her daughter that Dr Rossella decided to formulate this booster serum for every dry or weakened skin.

In Germany, psoriasis is treated by an omega drip by intravenous methods. To boost skin nutrition, you can use it before a moisturising mask, a moisturising face cream, a moisturising hand cream, a body milk anti-stretch marks (safe for pregnant women) or an after-sun care regime.

For those of us seeking an organic product for our skin to keep us looking young and youthful, then why not try the Eminence range? It plants a tree for every product sold.

The strawberry and rhubarb mask with hyaluronic acid and Eminence’s BioComplex contains an antioxidant booster of vitamins A, Ester C, E, Coenzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid. This masque replenishes the skin’s youthful appearance. The strawberries gently exfoliate while the rhubarb and vegan-friendly hyaluronic acid calm and plump, for a refreshed appearance.

The quick changes in temperature from hot to cold can cause chapped lips. The worst thing to use is petroleum jelly, which causes a dependency to re-apply it all day as it dries out the lips further. Eminence’s Citrus Lip Balm (€28) is a petroleum-free citrus treat for the lips with shea butter and sunflower seed oil to give lips maximum hydration and a sexy sheen. With continued use, the natural peptides make lips look voluptuous and youthful.

One of the most useful mineral for our body is magnesium, and who knew it can be used as a deodorant? Irish brand Indeora which is completely free from all forms of aluminium, aerosol gases, silicone and baking soda. The formula provides up to 24 hour protection and one bottle provides up to three months use.

Indeora is scented using natural coconut and vanilla oils. It is quick and easy to apply, does not stain clothing or block pores and it's vegan! It recently got the approval of Vogues’s Kathleen Baird Murray, and if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for me!
