or a design-led hotel in the comparatively balmy South West
England, an autumn staycation is as good a reason as any to
level-up your skincare routine and introduce some new hero products into the fold. We’re calling
upon Kiehl’s since 1851 to help us pack our
staycation washbag.

Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream

Not only does this offer deep hydration that belies its fluffy,
meringue-like texture, but it’s been specifically formulated with
micronised calendula petal fragments to alleviate irritated skin.
Diligently mask-clad travellers that we are, this year we’ve
struggled to find a product which moisturises without suffocating
our pores. A slick of this stuff does the job.

Ultra Facial Cream

It’s called “Ultra” for a reason. This best-selling moisturiser
is like heavenly nectar to wind-chapped cheeks. Made using glacial
glycoprotein derived from sea glaciers (scientifically proven to
actually enhance skin’s natural resilience) and nourishing
squalane, this product is truly deserving of a “hero” prefix.

Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask

This mask, made with cold-pressed Amazonian oils, will leave you
with that dewy, post-treatment glow. Unlike most sheet masks which
can be awkward to slip on, this one comes in two parts so it fits
all face shapes and sizes. Opt for a single mask or a box of four –
the perfect number for a long weekend.

Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA++++

We might not be gallivanting around sun-baked Santorini this
autumn, but you don’t need us to tell you that British weather is
as changeable as the flight corridor list. Rather than overloading
our freshly cleansed, toned and moisturised skin with a thick
lotion, we’re applying this milky formula which has been designed
specifically for sensitive skin.

Richly Hydrating Hand Cream

Incorporate this botanical hand cream into your standard
hand-washing routine wherever you are to get those dry and flaky
mitts back to levels of pre-pandemic perfection. One sniff of this
lotion – which comes in coriander, lavender or grapefruit scents –
will send you into a heady reverie.
