The secret to young-looking skin – in minutes!

Written by Lolly

WHAT is the secret to young looking skin?

Well, my advice would be to start from a very early age (I started at 12!), cleansing, toning and moisturiser.

Some of Lolly’s tips and tricks for younger looking skin:

Chill out ladies – stick an eye mask in the refrigerator before a big night out. Or stick some spoons in the fridge, and before you apply your make-up hold them up to your eyes and watch what happens!

What I recommend:

Soap & Glory Eye Cool from Boots. It’s just €8.49

Why I like it:

Apart from the fact that it’s just €8.49, this great product soothes your eyes and has puff preventing sleep mask and comes with eye gel mask. You simply pop the gel inserts into the fridge and then put them back inside the eye mask. Simply pop the gel inserts in the fridge and then put them back inside the eye mask.


Brighten up ladies – it’s not as bad as it seems! Layer a light-reflecting primer under your make-up. The light reflectors will make you look really fresh, really quickly.

What I recommend:

L’oreal Lumi Magique pure Light Primer €14.99 Boots

Why I like it:

This is great for those ‘day after’ hangovers when you dread going outside the front door. I like having nice skin every day as I meet with lots of people in the line of my work, so it’s important to feel good and look good.

A primer is used under your foundation to hide uneven textures in the skin before you apply your foundation. Trust me – do it, you won’t live without it again! Foundation needs to be applied to a smooth, even surface for it to look its best and to stay on your skin for longer. I like this particular one because it’s affordable, it really works and it hydrates the skin up to eight hours.


Creamy Concealer – stick some creamy concealer under your cheekbones and eyelids instant youthful glow!

What I recommend:

L’oreal Visible Lift CC Eye Concealer €4.99

Why I like it:

This is specifically designed for the eye area. The roller ball applicators instantly de-puffs the eyes and dark circles are hidden and the eye area is immediately brighter. Caffeine formula corrects all signs of fatigue, including dark circles, bags and puffiness and fine lines.


Facemasks – use a face mask that will tighten the skin. Not only will it tighten pores, it will also lift your skin.

What I recommend:

Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask €6.66 Boots

Why I like it:

This mask is rich in minerals and will absorb excess oil and detox your skin. Your skin will be left clearer, softer and a lot smoother.
The bark of the willow tree is a natural source of salicylic acid which helps to refine skin texture and actively target imperfections.
Apply it on your skin for 10-15 minutes and you’ll instantly see a difference.
