    What could be better for your skin right now than a healthy dose of vitamin C?!

    2. And this serum uses hyaluronic acid to moisturise and nourish your skin on a ~deep~ level.

    This one’s for those of you that like to keep your skin hydrated but not overly dewy. The hyaluronic acid works by absorbing the moisture from the air around you to leave your skin plump and hydrated – even with the central heating on full whack.

    Amazon / Via

    Be prepared to wake up to bright and smooth skin! It has a concentrated acid blend of AHAs and BHAs, which chemically exfoliate the skin to reveal the positively *glowing* layer beneath. It’s not as intense as it sounds and these pads are actually way more gentle on your skin than physical scrubs and exfoliators, just make sure you build up your tolerance to the acids by using them slowly at first before working your way up to 2-3 times a week.

    Price: £7.47
