Achieving a smooth, clear complexion takes more than just makeup – or beauty filters and apps. At the root it, you need to really take care of your skin. Whether to prevent acne or get that brighter, radiant glow, here are some beauty skincare products you can check out.

Action for acne

Renowned dermatological skincare brand, Eucerin, unveiled its latest innovation, ProAcne Solution Triple Effect Serum, the latest addition to the brand’s leading acne care range, ProAcne Solution.

The serum is said to reduce acne marks up to 80%, with visible results in two weeks after one begins using the product.

It contains Thiamidol, an exclusive and patented active ingredient developed by Eucerin during a 10-year research project, with the brand claiming it reduces acne marks, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation by addressing the root cause, which is the production of melanin in the skin.

In addition to this, the serum also contains salicylic acid to reduce acne as well as Licochalcone A to soothe irritations. Thanks to the Sebum-regulating technology, the formulation leaves a long-lasting, dry, matte finish to the skin.

Brightening and boosting


Laneige’s Radian-C Cream, created to lighten both visible and invisible ultra-fine dark spots, welcomes new additions, the Radian-C Advanced Effector and Radian-C Sun Cream, products which complement one another in a holistic routine as a brightening solution.

The Radian-C Advanced Effector is the first step in the skincare routine, formulated with a power trio of 3X Vitamin Mix (comprising a mixture of vitamin C, vitamin C derivative (EAE) and niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3), Super Berry Extract and taurine to intensely boost antioxidation effects to the skin.

Applying Radian-C Sun Cream is an important step in the routine, as it protects the skin from any possible damages caused by UV Rays. Even if you aren’t going out in the sun, UV rays are also emitted from the lights of our digital devices.

The Radian-C Sun Cream is a triple light care sunscreen ampoule that protects your skin with SPF 50+ PA++++ while maintaining blemish care, formulated with ingredients that suppress pigmentation induced by UV and fine dust irritation.

Power of plants

Utilising ethically-sourced ingredients and an honest approach to skincare, the brand I’m From has found a solution to calm skin and give it a fresh start, harnessing the magical powers of a single plant ingredient – mugwort.

Mugwort, also known as Artemisia Princeps, has been dubbed a medicinal herb for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties, as it is packed with a powerful punch of skin-calming benefits.

Mugwort naturally possesses anti-bacterial, calming, and soothing properties that relieve and treat even the most sensitive, irritated and breakout-prone skin. It also contains vitamin E, which protects and strengthens the skin barrier against breakouts while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Suitable for everyday use, the I’m From Mugwort Mask contains the finest ground mugwort that preserves the active ingredients of plant extracts and delivers their benefits directly to the skin. The highly concentrated gel formula is extracted by a 24-Hour Slow Release Extraction process that helps to detoxify skin while improving overall skin tone and soothing acne.

Solutions from the sea

Refresh your skin with a burst of moisture with the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion, a product formulated with Japanese marine algae and hyaluronic acid chronospheres to lock in moisture and create a cushion-like bounce to the skin.

Commonly referred to as “sea grapes” or “green caviar”, this Japanese algae is fortified with essential amino acids and B vitamins, working with hyaluronic acid to enhance skin’s elasticity and moisture content.

The product is meant to help you get balanced, lightweight hydration to visibly smooth fine lines and a dewy, healthy-looking complexion without looking greasy.

A gel moisturiser that is perfect for all skin types, the product was created with the aim of helping to rebuild the skin’s moisture level and enhance its elasticity for long lasting dewiness.

Use it in the morning and evening by smoothing it over clean, dry skin, and for best results, layer over a serum of your choice.

Soothing the skin

Origins introduces its latest innovation, the Mega-Mushroom Soothing Treatment Lotion, a lightweight, watery lotion that deeply penetrates the skin’s surface to hydrate and soothe the appearance of redness.

The new formula strengthens skin’s barrier to protect against external irritants. And, over time, pores are visibly reduced, the skin’s texture is smoothed, and dullness is reduced so that skin appears radiant and healthy.

The brand has been studying plant chemistry and how formulas work on skin, since its beginning in 1990, and with this product, they took a page from the nutritional world by studying “Adaptogenic Herbs”.

Adaptogens have a rich history as potent stress-resisting ingredients when consumed. In skin, they work alongside the Molecular Mushroom Complex with reishi and fermented chaga in the formula to help reduce visible irritation and redness, so that skin looks and feels more resilient.

Reishi, known as the “mushroom of immortality” and as a symbol of rejuvenation. Along with fermented chaga, reishi helps to counter reactive irritation, so skin looks visibly stronger as irritation is quickly soothed.
