Start off this (quite peculiar!) school year with an indispensable arsenal. Here are 10 Must-Haves:
If there's one step you shouldn’t skip during your morning routine, it's moisturizing! Quenched skin shows fewer signs of fatigue and keeps its natural glow throughout the day. Use a gentle formula to help your skin retain water and resist the onslaught of sun, wind, pollution and dry air. To make your life easier, use a multifunctional product morning and at night.
When choosing your moisturizer, make sure it’s the right one for your skin. If you tend to get acne or have oily skin, use a product that will prevent your skin from producing too much oil and stop pimples from forming. But if you have dry skin, choose a really rich skin care product that will nourish it deeply.
If you don’t know your skin type, ask one of the Jean Coutu cosmeticians. They’re happy to help!
