NEW YEAR, NEW SKIN

January is a time to start afresh, so cast aside bad skincare habits and start the year as you mean to continue – with a radiant complexion that glows with good health. Be inspired by beauty editor Jess Clark’s round-up of the best skincare resolutions to make for 2015

RESURFACE: CLEANSE AND POLISH TO REVEAL A GLOWING COMPLEXION

There’s no point in starting out with skin that’s dull with dead cells and impurities; begin with a deeply cleansed and polished surface. Opt for mud masks and salt scrubs – or resurface the modern way, using gentle glycolic and fruit acids
