When we hear the word “refined”, most of us think about an upper-class lady who eats cucumber sandwiches and drinks Earl Grey tea, right? But what about when we’re talking about making our complexion more refined? Usually, in the context of our skin, refining your complexion means minimising the appearance of pores, creating a more even texture and evening out skin tone and areas of hyperpigmentation. So, with this in mind, we’ve curated a list of five key products to help you to refine your skin:

Decleor Green Mandarin Overnight Bi-Phase Peel

The early signs of ageing are often responsible for making skin look less refined. The skin starts to sag and texture can change, while hyperpigmentation is also an issue. This overnight peel from Decleor uses green mandarin essential oils, resurfacing acids and soothing botanical oils to give the skin a natural glow and to help to reduce the first signs of ageing. As well as minimising the signs of tiredness, skin texture will appear refined and renewed.

SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Toner

When the skin has a visibly unrefined appearance, it’s often because pores are clogged and skin cells haven’t been adequately cleansed away. SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Toner is a low pH solution designed for skin prone to imperfections, to efficiently remove excess residue and surface skin cells to help decongest pores. It contains a trio of exfoliating agents, LHA, glycolic and salicylic acids, which help to unclog pores and remove dirt and oil that may lead to imperfections.

Aromatherapy Associates Mattifying Refining Face Oil

Giving your complexion a more refined appearance can rely on bringing things back into balance, and this is more often the case with oily skin types. This refining face oil from Aromatherapy Associates counters over-oiliness and brings the skin back into balance without stripping it. A combination of lavender, jojoba and ylang ylang oils soothe the skin to prevent any underlying issues which might contribute to excess oil production.

Skin Republic Spots and Blemish Mask

Masks are a fantastic tool for helping to refine your skin, and this one from Skin Republic will make a difference in just 20 minutes. As well as helping to refine pores, the mask is ideal for spot-prone skin and will reduce shine and redness, as well as eliminating spots without drying out the skin. With anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties, this effective mask will help keep skin clear and radiant.

Murad Clarifying Oil Free Water Gel

Many people with oily skin don’t realise that using a moisturiser can actually help to calm the skin and reduce the overproduction of sebum, and that’s exactly what this water-gel from Murad is designed to do. This oil-free, non-comedogenic, water-light hydrator purifies and refines the complexion and contains innovative technology that interrupts communication so bacteria can’t form a group and cause an imbalance. Your microbiome stays balanced, and you see clearer, hydrated, and healthier-looking skin.
