Keeping your skin looking healthy and wrinkle-free isn’t as daunting of a task as it seems. If you follow the correct procedures and treat it with the right products you introduce into your skincare routine, you’ll need not worry of breakouts.

Even if you’re working from home, we often forget to take into account the conditions of our home environment: air-conditioned on full mode the whole day can dry out your skin. So does working in front of your computer - rubbing and tugging the skin around the eyes or even constantly scratching your skin - can do more harm than good.

From face masks, lip balms to moisturisers and toner, check out our favourite skincare products so far this year.
