‘You can also tell by the scent that the product doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, it has a nice clean smell.’

He also favors the brand Elf which is known for it’s Happy Hydration Cream (£12.99 from Boots). Elf is a vegan company and produces products with little scent.

Elf is known for using cannabis in its moisturizing range, which is said to calm inflammation and help problem skin.

Another product that fans love is the Holy Hydration range (starting from £12.99) designed for dull skin and to give that perfect ‘glass skin’ look for less.

Revolution had blossomed in recent years with it’s affordable skincare range, and includes ingredients such as hyaluronic acid – Scott says this ingredient is key when it comes to keeping the skin’s elasticity.

Hyaluronic acid is something people usually associate with more high end brands, but you can pick up a Revolution skin serum with 0.2 per cent hyaluronic acid for just £12.99 or an anti blemish serum with salicylic acid for the same price.

Neutrogena

The best-selling Neutrogena Hydro boost range which retails from £7.99 has high quality ingredients and isn’t highly scented – one of Scott’s golden rules for spotting chemicals within a product.

The cleaner uses gel, which is a plus for those with oily skin as it doesn’t clog the pores.

The Hydro Boost range also crosses over into body care, including a whipped body lotion that costs £4.99.

The best-selling Hydro Boost range from Neutrogena is good for dry skin and starts at £7.99 for skincare and £4.99 for bodycare

Scott claims that well known names are made to ‘look appealing’ to a younger demographic, but with a higher end price tag.

He said: ‘Teens and younger people shouldn’t be paying over the odds for some moisturizer.

‘And for that matter neither should anyone over 25. Of course find a luxury brand that works for you and have a staple that you go to – but you don’t have to break the bank.

‘Brand like elf, Boots and Revolution suit younger teen skin and problem skin and will be well within budget – don’t be fooled by big names and always check the ingredients.’
