Younger Looking Skin with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Range

Elemis Pro-Collagen RangeFor many of us, the word ‘collagen’ brings to mind images of Pamela Anderson’s over-inflated lips in the mid-nineties after she started on her plastic surgery journey. However, collagen is actually a natural element which is produced in the body and is responsible for keeping our skin looking plumped up and wrinkle-free. Unfortunately, once we reach a certain age, our collagen production slows, which is why Elemis created their Pro-Collagen range, to stimulate the body’s own collagen production and keep skin looking younger for longer. Here are five of our favourite products from the range:

Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment

The eyes are one of the most common places for collagen production to slow down first, which means that crows feet and fine lines are visible prematurely. This advanced eye treatment has been developed to target fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate eye area and helps smooth and firm for a more youthful appearance. It has a weightless texture which doesn’t overload the eye area and contains an amino acid blend which improves the skin on a cellular level.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

Daily grime and pollutants are often responsible for damaging the skin and ruining its ability to repair itself, which means that you need a cleanser which is capable of efficiently removing all free-radicals. This cleansing balm is infused with elderberry, starflower and optimega oils as well as anti-ageing seaweed which combine to give you a super-clean face as well as stimulating collagen production.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream

Perhaps the most popular product in the Pro-Collagen range, this marine cream deeply moisturises the skin using marine botanicals and has been proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydration in 15 days. Hydration is SO important to ageing skin, especially when trying to maintain good levels of collagen reduction, so even if you only invest in one Pro-Collagen product, we’d recommend that you make it this one.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm

It’s easy to forget that beauty doesn’t stop at your chin, and in fact another area which often suffers the worst effects of lack of collagen is the neck and decolletage. ‘Jowls’ are enough to make anyone look older, which is why maintaining tightness in the area is really important. This balm is designed specifically to keep the neck and upper chest firm and wrinkle-free, improving the appearance of skin elasticity and smoothness and reducing the appearance of crepiness and skin slackening.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men

Never ones to forget the fellas, Elemis has produced a Marine Cream just for men, and they’ve even won awards for it! It does all the same things as the regular version of the Marine Cream and is imbued with the same powerful ingredients, but has a slightly more masculine fragrance and packaging, so that he won’t mind using it after a shower at the gym!

Add a serum to your beauty regime

Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Serum

Serums certainly aren’t new to a decent beauty skincare routine, but what many people don’t realise is that the right one can take you from good skin to great skin.

Whether it’s an age-defying, glow-enhancing product or a moisture-boosting serum you’re looking for, at Pure-Beauty we think we have got one that is just right for you.

The Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Serum is one of our very favourite products at Pure-Beauty because of the way it feels on your skin and the results it produces. Made from a cocktail of vitamins and peptides that are blended with sunflower butter, this soft, velvety silicone base has a smooth, wearable feel that you skin will simply adore. If you have dry or prematurely ageing skin, Vitamins A, C and E will help deal with fine lines and hyperpigmentation while at the same time stimulate collagen formation to tackle sun-induced ageing, something we all need to be aware of. Ongoing use will boost elasticity levels and you will be left with a fantastically fresh complexion and super-natural smile.

If you like a little colour in your cheeks, the Decleor Face Tan Activator Serum could be perfect for you. This clever tan activator serum is a 100% pure and natural and really is something a little bit special. The refined, silky texture helps prepare your skin for the sun by boosting your natural defences and can help prevent ageing as well as promoting a long-lasting tan as cells are strengthened. For the best results, it is suggested you apply two drops of the serum over your face and neck before moisturising each morning and ideally three to five days before exposing your skin to the sun. Please note, you still need an SPF when you go outside to keep your skin safe and prevent burning.

If your skin needs a little extra love, you will find it with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Serum. Packed with pure concentrated Padina Pavonica, which has been proven to help strengthen the epidermis, this product will leave your skin looking younger and smoother in no time at all. Made from Rhodochrosite, Quartz and Argan oil, this serum offers a unique network of proteins that have a tightening effect on the skin so it looks firmer and as if you have had mini face lift – but without the pain. Methylsilanol Manurronate, which comes from seaweed, has been added so that your skin feels stronger and your wrinkles are smoothed away.

Your skin works hard when you are asleep so why not treat it to the Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum? This super-charged peptide serum helps stimulate collagen production so the skin feels renewed and firmer, while Argan and Rose oils revitalise your complexion and smooth away fine lines. You use this serum in pure form or blend with your evening moisturiser and either way, you will wake up with luminous skin that glows.

For many of us, it’s our eyes that get tired and this is where the Elemis Absolute Eye Serum comes into play. This smooth serum is easy to apply and gets straight to work on dullness and puffiness. Just two small drops around the eye contour area will help condition and nourish, revitalise and refresh leaving clear, toned skin once again. The eye area is left feeling rehydrated and rejuvenated.

Cleansing is an essential steps for clear, healthy beautiful skin and has to be done morning and night, however tired you are, for the best and consistent results.

The thing is, there are so many schools of thought on beauty routines, and more and more products being launched to the market, knowing which one to use can be as tricky and using them properly for maximum results is often a task.

Whether you are dealing with acne prone skin, oily issues or premature ageing, at Pure Beauty we have a range of cleaners from Elemis, Decleor and Dermalogica that get to the heart of the matter and leave you with your best skin ever.

If excess oil is getting you down, why not give the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser a try? This skin-perfecting formula deep-cleans oily and congested skin leaving it feel soft, smooth and clean. It does so, thanks to be blend of water-soluble Kaolin and Green clays being combined with extracts of Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon which together remove excess oils and refine the skin’s texture. Cucumber cools, sage soothes irritation and added menthol means that after the first use, even the most tired skin is revitalised.

When you are busy and stressed, you might not think you have time to look after your skin, but actually this is exactly when you need to invest in self-care. The Decleor Hydra-Radiance Smoothing and Cleansing Mousse is perfect for busy women on the go because it provides three key actions for beautiful, glowing, healthy-looking skin, at once:

• Deep cleansing: when mixed with water, the concentrated cream changes into a mousse that deep cleans and softens the skin leaving it velvety soft.

• Skin polishing and perfecting: Grape Juice, Papaya Extract and Japanese White Mulberry, exfoliate away dead cells and pollution so the skin is clear and luminous after just one use.

• Moisturising and plumping: because this product contains Neroli Essential Oil and Hyaluronic Acid the skin is nourished and feels youthful once again.

This product comes with two weave cloths and used morning and night, we think you will love the way your skin looks and feels from the word go.

We absolutely adore the Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser from Elemis. Crated for combination and congested skin, just a little goes a long way to deeply cleansing the skin, removing dirt, make-up and pollution. Excess surface oils are removed and the skin is soothed thanks to a mix of Lime Blossom, Lecithin and Vitamin E. Little knows Vitamin F, also known as Linoleic Acid, has been added to the mix and this essential fatty acid, which is rich in Omega-6, nourishes and conditions the skin so it feels relaxed and happy once again.

One of our best sellers at Pure Beauty is the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and for good reason. This soap-free, foaming gel removes impurities from the skin but doesn’t disturb the natural moisture balance we need to keep things happy and healthy. Suitable for all skin types, mint and lavender extracts have been expertly blended with quillaja saponaria and together they take away the toxins and deep-clean the skin leaving it feeling softer and fresher than ever.

If your skin is feeling tired and tight, then our last suggestion is the Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser. Vitamins E and F have been blended with rose petal water which come together to create a light product that hydrates and purifies the skin. Ideal for sensitive skin, this combination restores sluggish complexions into clean, radiant ones that by morning are ready to soak up your moisturiser and by night is free of dirt, make up and the stress of the day.

Father’s Day with Pure Beauty

Father's Day with Pure Beauty

Royalty-free image

Father’s Day is just over a week away and if the men in your lives are anything like ours, they’re probably quite tricky to buy for! With the rise of male grooming reaching astronomical heights, there’s never been a better time to treat your Dad to some high-end skincare products, so we thought we’d give you an overview of the products we stock from Elemis, Dermalogica and Decleor to inspire you to find the perfect gift in time for 18th June.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is one of their most popular products, so it stands to reason that the men’s version would be equally popular! An award-winning product, this anti-ageing moisturiser harnesses the power of mediterranean algae, padina pavonica, anti-oxidant rich ginkgo biloba and soothing abyssine to improve moisturisation, skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity.

Dermalogica Shave System Kit

Why buy Dad just one product from the Dermalogica shave range, when you can let him try one of everything?! This kit from Dermalogica contains a month’s supply of Dermalogica Daily Clean Scrub, Dermalogica Pre Shave Guard, Dermalogica Soothing Shave Cream, Dermalogica Post Shave Balm,  and a sample of Dermalogica Daily Defense Block, for a great shave and healthy skin. It’s ideal for a gym bag and comes in airline-approved sized bottled, making it perfect for travel, too.

Elemis Smooth Result Shave and Beard Oil

If your Dad is anything like the men in our lives, their facial hair changes regularly, depending on their mood and the weather. The means that a multi-functional product, such as this shave a beard oil, would be ideal. As well as being perfect for keeping beards soft and smelling pleasant, it can also be used as a protective oil when shaving, so he can be as indecisive as he likes about how to wear his facial hair!

Decleor Triple Action Shave Perfector

It’s a fact that shaving can damage the skin, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a necessity for many men. Using products which protect the skin will minimise irritation which is where Decleor Triple Action Shave Protector comes in; this oil will reduce the amount of friction between skin and blade, giving  a close shave without any damage. It also helps to minimise hair growth and prevent ingrown hairs, allowing him to shave less and maintain a flawless complexion.

Elemis S.O.S. Survival Cream

We often find that men, despite needing a facial moisturiser for dry skin on their face, will use female-centric products purely because they don’t want to go to the shops and be overwhelmed by the choice. This S.O.S. Survival Cream from Elemis is formulated specifically for men and will soothe irritation from shaving, reduce dryness and blemishes and keep the skin hydrated and comfortable.
