Hands up – who else occasionally neglects skincare? If there’s one thing not to forget (even in summer!) it’s to moisturise. We love the Brightening Cream from Talika, which transforms light energy into cellular energy. Yep, it’s activated and works with light. Over time, it reduces the intensity of dark spots, and you’ll be rocking a brighter complexion in a month. Score.
A 50ml jar is $680, available from www.talika.com
