Staying in is the new going out, but that doesn’t mean our appearance should suffer...
In an age of video conferencing, with unflattering lighting in home offices and laptop camera angles, we are faced with our own image every day. Few of us relish the idea of staring at ourselves 24/7 and would prefer to go into camera off mode more often.
But in a socially distant world, our appearances receive more attention and scrutiny than ever before. While beauty (and certainly a judge of competence) shouldn’t be skin deep, from both a presentation and self-esteem perspective, looking good has never been further up the agenda.
But if you are new to having a regular skincare regime, where do you start?

Good skincare is simple, according to Amish Patel, director and aesthetics practitioner at the Intrigue Cosmetics Clinic: “Cleanse, treat, hydrate and protect. These are the crucial four steps to great skin.”
Some products will only do one of these and some will do all, but overall, it is important to ensure these four steps are being followed for your skin.
