Why you need: FaceWorks' ultra rich Moisture Serum

Dr. Teresa Cattin - who I’d heard about for years before meeting her, and always in rather glowing terms – is in my opinion New Zealand’s best cosmetic physician, and a top-notch woman to boot. A Medical Practitioner (MSc, MBBCh, FRNZCGP, FNZCAM) and a member of the Appearance Medicine Society of Australasia, she is also the owner of FaceWorks Clinic in Albany, Auckland, and creator of the stellar skincare range of the same name.
As well as being president of the New Zealand College of Appearance Medicine, Teresa is a national trainer in Botox Cosmetic and Juvéderm, training other doctors in New Zealand and Australia. Needless to say, she is a clearly a woman who knows who stuff when it comes to needles and ant-ageing, and recently travelled to the likes of India – and soon to Paris – to share her incredible wealth of knowledge.
Teresa has said that “there is no doubt that the results of any treatment that you chose to have, be it Botox or a Juvéderm will be greatly improved if the skin is healthy and well cared for”, and around 14 years ago she developed the FaceWorks range of skincare products with that in mind. Made in New Zealand and designed specifically for our harsh climate, FaceWorks is a firm favourite with beauty editors and has a loyal following amongst women and men wanting an effective and affordable cosmeceutical skin care range purchase.
An incredible product from the range that I’ve just begun using is FaceWorks’ Moisture Serum, an intense rehydration treatment for dry skin that utilises the excellent hydration properties of pure squalane (derived from Spanish Olives).  Rose hip oil (10%) aids the repair of skin damaged by sun and wind while the potent antioxidant properties of vitamin E (1800 units) help reduce the signs of premature ageing. To say it’s a bit of a powerhouse for dry, dehydrated skin would be putting it mildly, and the fact that it is preservative-free is an added bonus.
My skin has been pretty damn parched post-radiation therapy and just applying this sparingly to my face and neck every evening has elicited some amazing results. Fine lines and dryness, be gone! If your skin needs a little extra something then I highly recommend this baby, which you can purchase from Teresa’s website here.
