I like to think I can be realistic about living life in the beauty fast lane: occasionally, glam happenings and a diet of cocktails and canapés takes its toll. The best cure for looking less than radiant is the old fashioned one – a good night’s sleep, swathed in the best moisturiser money can buy. But, if you spot the first signs of a beauty SOS, such as an emerging blemish or seriously partied out skin, these little wonderworkers might just save the day.

Repair with Underwear
Late nights, missed meals and one Mojito too many is a guaranteed route to dull skin. I’ve been trialling La Prairie Gold Illusion Line Filler, under foundation, tinted moisturiser and just on its own…and liking the results. Minute particles of real gold and silk peptides – not great chunks of glitter like you find in less sophisticated versions – give a gentle luminosity, and make skin feel pre-teen soft.

Blast To The Past
An emerging spot is the worst beauty SOS of all, so make M Lab Blemish Control Spot Treatment, high on your priority list. This brand is notoriously expensive, but that’s because of the huge number of active ingredients – this has 82% – that will give the results you need to save face. The unpronounceable blemish fighter is Montmorillonite, and it reduces sebum production, exfoliates the surface of the skin and delivers a soothing and healing action.
