Sometimes your skin just needs a kickstart. Check out this fun and easy-to-use skincare range from Clinique

Feeling dull, sluggish and lacklustre? Don't let your skin suffer the same fate. Clinique's new Pep-Start range will give you smooth, energised skin that's ready for makeup, without causing you to miss a beat. Think of it as pep rally for your complexion. How does this range do it? With multi-functional products and clever applicators that work in a jiff, to clean, smooth and hydrate skin. Start with the brand's Pep-Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser. Like it's name suggests, this oil-free, gel cleanser does two things in one: cleanse and exfoliate. It even foams to really deep clean, and has a blend of chemical and physical exfoliators to reveal soft, smooth skin.

Because your eyes are one of the first areas to show tiredness, rely less on high-coverage concealers, and more on the range's Eye Cream, that has a custom, spherical massage applicator to de-puff and  eyes and help them look wide awake. The Hydra-Blur Moisturizer, meanwhile, is like an instant Instagram filter for your skin. This lightweight cream hydrates, blurs imperfections and controls oil production, so your complexion looks fresh and clear all day, even before the makeup, Finally, always have a pack of the Quick Cleansing Swipes handy at your desk and at home. Post-gym, or even mid-day, use these wipes to remove surface oils, dead skin and debris, for instantly refreshed skin — no rinsing is necessary, so they're great for travel as well.
