New year, new skincare regime? If your skin is suffering from dehydration or dryness – and whose isn’t by this stage of the winter? – then check out Botanical Kinetics, a new mini skincare collection from Aveda. Two new moisturisers plus an eye cream make up the range which has been created around a plant energy complex which supports natural energy production in skin cells and harnesses the energy of plants to stimulate the skin’s natural hydrators, helping cells to absorb moisture instantly and retain it for 24 hours. Intense Hydrating Soft Creme (£40) is a light, easy-to-wear moisturiser, for morning and evening use, which suits all skin types. I’ve taken to wearing it as a day cream, as the texture works well for my combination skin and my make-up sits nicely on it. Intense Hydrating Rich Creme (£40) is a heavier proposition, designed for drier skins. I’ve been using it at night, but imagine that it would make a dry skin feel protected as well as moisturised if worn during the day. Also just out is Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme (£35), a lightweight creme developed with sufferers from dark circles and puffiness in mind. Available at Aveda counters, salons and spas nationwide, and from www.aveda.co.uk.
