Beauty Expert, Jennifer Robertson skin saving tips for “Surviving the party season”

13 Dec

We all do it…over do it that is so beauty expert, trainer and “Beautinista” Jennifer Robertson has put together some very useful ‘skin saver’ tips for ‘The Morning After The Night Before!’

Jennifer says “If you didn’t remove your make-up the night before falling asleep, here’s what to do…”

 1. Drink, drink, drink! H20, water, uisce to hydrate as alcohol expires through the pores of the skin and this will get the detox started!


Ren No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm

2.  Double cleanse your skin with your hands…hands are the best way to cleanse as it will help to lift away dirt from the pores easily without blocking them, remove with damp cotton pads or a damp muslin cloth. Jennifer recommends REN No1 Purity Balm  as its a rose-infused cleansing balm that gently yet thoroughly melts away dirt and make-up and yes even removes waterproof mascara! 

3. If you’ve cleansed the night before a single cleanse is only needed.  Jennifers says “Always remember… with regards to cleansing- double cleanse pm and single cleanse am

Ren Active 7 Radiant Eye Ge

 One of Jennifer’s favourite products is REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Gel,  “This is a light and cooling gel to treat, revive and brighten the delicate eye area, great for late nights, pop it in the fridge for a real treat!”

5.Keep yourself moisturized to help the skin stay hydrated and protected throughout the day.

6. “My best recommendation is to have an early night and do it all again, the skin works hard between the hours of 10pm-4pm, and you be looking younger and have a luminous skin…”
