Stay looking fresh-faced with Jess Lacey’s pick of the top rejuvenating products to be used this winter
1 Bourjois Aqua Blush
Blusher is the ultimate perkifier for drab skin and adding colour in line with your pupils is the failsafe way to look bright-eyed. Powders can look cakey but this transparent gel, dabbed on with your ring finger, will look more natural. Pale skins should try pinker shades and darker skins should embrace peachy tones.

2 Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster
Sleep is when skin goes all-out to renew itself. But what if you’re not getting any? Toxins build up and you can look grey and drawn. This new concoction works on the skin’s surface, feeding it a probiotic formula to stimulate and support your natural processes. Initial studies have shown huge leaps in collagen production and hydration levels. It does what your skin would do, if it were given the chance.

3 DECLÉOR Aurabsolu Intense Glow Awakening Cream
Skin becomes inflamed through the day and we can look up to five years older by night-time. Depressing or what? On the upside, DECLÉOR’s face cream contains Jasmine Absolute, a turbo-charged antioxidant that protects against the free radicals that cause inflammation, improving skin tone and evening out your complexion. The ultimate antidote to weary, sluggish skin. £49.50 | decleor.co.uk
4 Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation
After years of making catwalk models look like otherworldly beings, Charlotte Tilbury now mixes products for us mere mortals. Her foundation not only covers but treats all manner of skin sins. What’s more, it contains a dose of vitamin C that amps up the energy in skin cells, the beauty equivalent of a lightbulb being switched on under your skin.

5 Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Brightening Serum + Concealer
If you’re multi-tasking all day, there’s no reason why your make-up shouldn’t be, too. Dot this light-reflecting serum around the eyes to colour-correct shadows and smooth fine lines, then sweep the concealer on top for extra camouflage. Both formulas blend seamlessly into the skin, so you can be as slapdash as you like. A magic wand for your skin.
