As we approach December, my hope is that you’re not going into panic mode and trying to fix all your skin woes within the next three weeks in time to look gorgeous and glowing for the plethora of special celebrations that are filling your diary.
However, if this sounds all a little too familiar and you’re really wishing you started a skincare regime months ago, don’t fret, a few new additions to your vanity and a little discipline and you’ll see results just in time for Christmas!
Cheryl Ross is a skin goddess, her passion for all things skincare and her extensive knowledge of the unique benefits and healing powers of natural ingredients has left her in high demand to consult skincare companies over the past decade. Her career as an International model means that she understands the importance of having you skin look it’s best at all times; it also means, when she launches a skincare range, you know it’s going to be good!
CR FORMULATIONS was conceptualized in 2013, a range of serums, creams, cleansers and lotions, that can only be likened to what Cheryl describes herself as, [what CR Formulations is to skincare] – ‘haute couture is to fashion’.
Having treated my skin to The One and Creme Absolute over the past weeks; if you’re looking for a new moisturizer, cleanser or perhaps want to give your existing routine a boost; look no further.
The One serum is literally just that – all you need! A potent blend of active ingredients that claim to plump, tighten and fortify thanks for super peptides, Edelweiss and Hylauronic Acid.
The One absorbs immediately, leaving your skin with a hydrated, dewy appearance and almost an ever-so-subtle tightening feeling.
It’s perfect to use in conjuction with any products within the CR Formulations range, however it would be a perfect addition to your skincare regime if you are not already using a serum.
Creme Absolute is the most luxurious treat for your skin come bedtime, enriched with Vitamin B3, Vitamin A, beta glucan, marine collagen and seabuckthorn – there is no complexion – no matter how dry or aggravated that Creme Absolute won’t nourish and soothe.
Creme Absolute is a true ‘sleeping beauty’ potion – it’s incredibly rich [so a tiny bit goes a very long way] and within just minutes, your skin feels so much more hydrated – and when you wake in the morning, your skin will be smooth, soft, plump and glowing.
This is the perfect lotion to get your skin in tip-top shape stat!
So with that said, Cheryl has been ever so kind to share her unparalleled knowledge and tips to get your skin glowing in time for the silly season…
As Summer and the ‘party season’ approaches, everyone is looking for their complexion to be flawless and radiant, what are your top tips to make your skin glow?
As Summer and the Party Season approaches a good ‘Spring’ clean is definitely the starting point. Exfoliating the skin is fundamental to healthy skin. This should be done well and regularly – at least twice a week.
The skin produces in excess of 40,000 dead cells a minute. Yes a minute. Dead skin cells act like a barrier that clogs the pores and the sweat glands and prevents the absorption of vitamins and nutrients from your skincare. This can cause dehydration, dull and congested skin and breakouts.
By exfoliating your skin, new skin is exposed, leaving a smooth, glowing and healthy look. Then a good serum is what I suggest. One containing multiple antioxidants, peptides and moisture retaining ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.
From your range, do you have a favourite product?
It’s difficult to choose a favourite product because they all do different things but if I had to I would choose Crème Absolute – because it represents ‘Me Time’. It is pure indulgence, a truly sensory experience. With all the magnificent ingredients contained within it provides a deeply nourishing protective shield on my skin. Every woman has some sort of skincare at night and Crème Absolute is the highlight of mine.
And in case your in need of a skincare overhaul and are looking to invest in new must-have products – from your range, are their any products that compliment each other particularly well?
Two products that are great together are Saving Face and Berry Boost. Saving Face is a gel serum that delivers the world’s most powerful antioxidant Astaxanthin deep into the skin. It is an ideal serum to hydrate and protect the skin from environmental pollution. The ultra-moisturising Berry Boost has a synergistic blend of Cranberry, Raspberry, Kiwi seed and Blackcurrant to reduce those fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth area.
