The ‘Skin Energy’ cosmetic doctor reveals her favourite skin saviours
Check out Terry's expert profile here.
The formula is rich in greens (e.g. barley grass, chlorella, spirulina), fibre (e.g. psyllium husk and brown flax seed), digestive enzyme blend (to aid digestion), colourful food concentrates (powerful antioxidants of natural foods) and phytonutrients (e.g. cinnamon, ginger, licorice, lemongrass) to balance your hormones and provide health benefits. I drink it on its own mixed with coconut water, or mix it in with my smoothies and morning oats. For a treat, I add half a teaspoon to my clay mask for a weekly boosted antioxidant skin pampering session. Perfect for brightening and absorbing any excess oil from the skin. You can get it from most health food stores e.g. Wholefoods or Revital.
It also has hyaluronic acid microspheres which hydrate and smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, and it has a powder finish so it glides on your skin without being too heavy or rich.
I also apply it after I extract my spots to avoid it worsening, and over my skin tags every night to minimise them. Keep away from the eyes as it does sting (even the vapour).
I love Heliocare because it gives me good protection plus good coverage (I use the gel cream in brown). It is also very light and breathable so I don't wear foundation. This acts as my foundation and if I need to, I just dust a light powder on top to set it but most of the time it’s not necessary.
It has salicylic acid, tea tree extract and round beads to gently exfoliate. These round beads slowly dissolve to release vitamin E which is a natural antioxidant and hydrator for the skin. I find it's also gentle enough to clean make-up with.
