Beauty Brand Of The Week: Avène!

Who? Born out of the beautiful mountains in the south of France, hi-tech skincare brand Avène is our go-to for banishing problem skin. Their super-powered products harness the goodness of thermal spring water to soothe, calm and moisturise even the most sensitive skins.

Why? The change in season can leave your face dry and patchy. But don’t worry, we’ve found the perfect solution! Start with a spritz of Avène Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water, £3.15 for 50ml, then blend a couple dots of Avène Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream, £13.50, over your face. Et voilà! Hello, supermodel skin!

Best Buys? Sick of those dry stubborn bumps on the backs of your arms? Well, Avène Akerat Body Care Cream, £15, will banish the bumps and get your skin in tip-top condition come summer. We’re also loving the Avène Soothing Hydrating Serum, £17, which feels water-light but will give your skin a shot of hydration. It’s a brilliant base for your make-up.

Better add these babies to shopping list now – your skin will thank you for it!

Remember, you can buy the digital edition of LOOK magazine for your tablet or iPhone. And don’t forget to rate it in iTunes!
