Even though we're finally back outside, it doesn’t mean all those new skincare revelations you made during those masked days need to be abandoned. Now, more than ever, keeping up with your skincare routine is essential. And it doesn’t have to be some complicated 10-step routine that makes your head spin. Keep things nice and easy with a cleanser, toner, serum, moisturiser, and eye cream.

Try the Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, Lancôme Pur Rituel Tonique Confort Toner, Lancôme Advanced Genifique Serum, and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream to nourish your skin.

Don’t forget to use sunscreen daily - come rain or sunshine. Consider Lancôme’s UV Expert Aqua Gel SPF50 or Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF50.

Having a signature scent is something that not only makes you feel luxurious but can make a drastic difference in your mood. And with a plethora of options, it can be overwhelming to pick what suits you whether it's a fragrance with woody or fruity notes.

However, once you find the right one, it enhances your morning routine, making that little time for work or leaving your home feel even more special. And if you want to add it to your nighttime routine, there’s no one stopping you from still having a tantalising aroma before bed.

A little foundation, blush, and mascara has never hurt anyone… no matter their gender expression.

Incorporating makeup into your standard beauty routine - even in the most minimal way - can give you a small confidence boost and make those impromptu camera moments even better.

Makeup is meant to enhance what you already have and not cover it up. Trust Lancôme Teint Idôle Ultra Wear Foundation SPF15 to never disappoint, no matter what life throws at you. For an even stronger, overall lasting finish, go for Lancôme Lash Idôle Mascara Waterproof and Lancôme Blush Subtil - L'Absolue Rouge.

And always remember to remove your makeup before bed. Make the Lancôme Pur Ritue Bi-Facil Makeup Remover your trusty companion for this excellent skincare habit.
