Best Lash Serum: Eyelash Conditioning Serum, $65, ILASH
A combination of vitamins, hyaluronic acid and peptide complex help to strengthen lashes so they’re able to grow longer without falling off.
Lashes are also shinier thanks to hyaluronic acid, which leaves lash strands conditioned and hydrated. With once-daily application, lashes appear longer and thicker in just three to six weeks.
Most Luxurious Face Cream: SUBLIMAGE L'Extrait de Creme, $820, Chanel
Using active ingredients from different parts of the Vanilla Planifolia plant at the peak periods of each year, Chanel has created an exceptional cream that regenerates, repairs and protects skin.

Working in tandem with skin’s natural ability to heal and repair at night, this rich overnight mask enhances skin recovery and microcirculation to promote skin smoothness, firmness and strength while you sleep.

Each sheet of Bifesta’s Micellar Makeup Remover Wipe is able to remove tough waterproof makeup while leaving skin refreshed and cleansed.
The formula also includes antioxidant-rich green tea and hyaluronic acid so that skin is protected against free radical damage, and at the same time hydrated.
Best Makeup Remover: Sensibio H20 Eye, $19.90, Bioderma
While Bioderma’s cult favourite Sensibio H2O is great at removing makeup, if you are dealing with tough waterproof formulas, turn to the Sensibio H2o eye. Its bi-phase formula forms a milky emulsion when mixed, easily swiping away waterproof makeup on the eyes and lips without irritation. Its gentle formula means makeup removal with minimal tugging, and reduces irritation to the sensitive and fragile eye area.

Science on Skin
Best Oral Supplements - Firming: Premium Gold Deer Placenta, $148 for 30 capsules, Holistic Way
Rich in protein, amino acids, hyaluronic acids, vitamins and minerals, this skincare oral supplement protects skin from free radical damage, supports cell regeneration and improves skin’s overall elasticity and suppleness.

Best Oral Supplements - Hydration: Skin Food Marine Collagen, $69 for 60 capsules, Holistic Way
Natural marine collagen and antioxidants form the base of this oral supplement. As we age, the body’s production of collagen slows down, and when it’s unable to keep up with the rate in which collagen is depleted, the deficit results in loss of skin density, sagging and dryness. This oral supplement supports the collagen store in the body, helping you maintain a healthy and youthful complexion

Tasty and good for your skin? Start your day with the Original Milk Tea, an alternative to your daily cuppa or bubble tea, to supplement your skin with nutrients like vitamins A, C, D, curcumin, ginkgo, and glutathione. Combined, this tea helps to support healthier skin, while working with your topical sunscreen to stave off sun damage on the skin.
