Products to take into the shower

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Cream

Nothing beats a long, leisurely soak in the bath when you need to relax after a busy day, but sometimes a shower is all you have time for. While soft lighting and scented candles might be out, even if you are running in and out of the water, you can still use gorgeous products in the shower that will make your skin feel and look fantastic.

At Pure Beauty we sell a range of great products that are perfect when you want to wash and go.

A great go to shower option is the Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash which is packed with purifying essential oils and natural extracts and is perfect for all skin types. Soap-free Quillaja Saponaria extract cleanses the skin, leaving it feeling soft and silky. Essential oils of Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary gently purify without stripping the skin’s own natural goodness and oils of Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage moisturise the skin, leaving it smooth and conditioned.

We love the Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo because it leaves hair looking shiny and feeling conditioned every time you use it. Argan Oil has been added to help protect hair from heat and sun damage, while increasing softness, shine and manageability and Avocado Oil minimises breakage. Thanks to Grapefruit Peel, Lavender and Geranium Oil your hair smells amazing and your senses are invigorated. It is a good idea to follow with the Dermalogica Daily Conditioning Rinse as this gentle formula restores softness and shine to your locks thanks to Pro-Vitamin B5.

The shower is the perfect place to put the Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush to the test. Using this natural cactus bristle brush helps stimulate lymph flow and keep skin healthy. We suggest you start at the soles of your feet then work up the legs towards the heart. Also use on you hands, arms, tummy and back for an all over treatment and finish with your neck and scalp but do not use on the face and chest.

Another way to get your skin really clean and clear, is to use the Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub. This spa worthy product gently cleanses and smoothes the body, whilst removing the dead cells that can dull your skin. Full of silicon-rich seaplant particles, Devils Apron seaweed and Peppermint essential oil, skin is left feeling super soft and ready to soak up your moisturiser.

If it is a truly luxurious cream wash you are looking for, you will find it with them Elemis Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream. Thanks to advanced body care technology, this exceptionally skin friendly formulation cleanses the skin but doesn’t take away vital protective surface oils. A unique infusion of exotic Tahitian Monoi oil blended with Tiare flowers and Frangipani flowers means skin is left feeling soft, supple and delicately scented. For total body indulgence after your shower, dry your skin with a soft towel and apply the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil.

If you’re really in a rush, take the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel into the shower with you too. This is a soap-free, foaming gel that really cleans the skin but doesn’t strip away oils or upset the moisture balance. Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe the skin, while Quillaja Saponaria gently rids your complexion of toxins and make  and the Dermalogica Sponge Cloth is perfect to use with this. Once you are out of the shower, simply tone and moisturise and you are ready to go.

Get Yourself Some Avocado Power!

Get Yourself Some Avocado Power!

Royalty-free image

For a long time, avocado was viewed as a bit of a throwback to the Eighties, where everyone wanted to impress their dinner party guests with exotic ingredients. However, the mighty avocado is going through a bit of a renaissance with nutrition experts extolling their virtues at every opportunity and people using them for all kinds of recipes – even cake! Avocado oil has a lot of amazing properties, especially in beauty terms, which is why Elemis, Decleor and Dermalogica all have products containing it. Read on for five of our favourites:

Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum Concentrate

This highly concentrated serum is designed for over sensitised skin which is suffering with redness, feeling sore and tight and having inflammatory flare-ups. Avocado oil is used because it’s rich in essential fatty acids, ceramides and phytosterols that fortify skin’s barrier lipid layer, protecting against assaults that trigger redness and irritation. It can be used twice daily alongside the other products in the Ultra Calming range for soothing results.

Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Rich Cream

If your skin is suffering with extreme dryness then this rich cream is the one for you. It contains avocado oils, as well as soy plant oils, to deeply nourish the skin and add back much needed moisture, which is especially good at this time of year when skin can feel even dryer. It also protects the skin against daily pollutants which prevents further drying.

Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo

Avocado isn’t just great for your skin – it’s also good for your hair, too! This shampoo is a sulphate-free formula which utilises avocado to minimise breakage and help the scalp to retain moisture. It can be used daily without stripping the hair of it’s natural layer of protection and protects hair from heat and sun damage, while increasing softness, shine and manageability.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

This night cream from Elemis has been specially formulated for skin which is dealing with the ageing process to help to bolster the skin’s natural regeneration process. It harnesses the power of avocado oil to deliver protection against free radicals and maximises your skin’s ability to repair and breathe at night. Just a few nights of usage will drastically improve your skins elasticity and suppleness.

Dermalogica Lip Renewal Complex

The lips are a really common place for the signs of ageing to be prominent, which is why Dermalogica developed this Lip Renewal Complex, designed to smooth the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth. Vitamin E fights damaging free radicals while a moisturising blend of avocado oil, combined with shea and cocoa seed butters, quickly smooths rough, uneven lips.

Light up your skin with Pure Beauty

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask

Just as fireworks will soon light up the night sky, if you look after your skin, it will sparkle too.

At Pure-Beauty we offer a range of outstanding beauty products that help your skin look great so you can feel the very best you.

Today we are showcasing some of the products that help your complexion glow, however cold it is as you stand around the November bonfire.

If you are looking for superior smoothness and ultra-clean skin after just one try, we suggest trying the Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser. Convenient, but effective, this two-in-one product cleanses and exfoliates the skin in one easy step. As well as soft skin, cells are renewed, texture is refined and the natural moisture barrier is restored.

For a something a little special, we think the Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising Mask hits the mark. By harnessing the goodness of Mimosa and Honey Absolute and adding extracts of Sea Rocket, Orange and Bergamot, skin feels exceptionally moisturised and enriched from the off. You can use the mask twice a week, leaving it on for ten minutes and then rinse with warm water. For a more intense treatment, apply to the face and neck before bed and even the most sensitive skin will feel soothed and refreshed in the morning.

Tired eyes can really give away those late nights and hours spent at a computer screen and this is where the Decleor Harmonie Calm Relaxing Milky Gel-Cream for Eyes comes in. This easy to apply gel-cream has a light texture and gently soothes the sensitive eye area. Dark circles are reduced, discomfort and redness reduced and fine lines are eases so your eyes can sparkle once again.

The Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Serum contains a cocktail of vitamins and peptides that will make your skin dance with joy. The goodness is suspended in sunflower butter and the velvety silicone base sinks into your skin making it feel smooth and cared for. Vitamins A, C and E help ease fine lines and age spots while stimulating collagen formation to decrease ageing caused by the elements. Yes, this is a wonder product and we love it.

For a real boost, let your skin drink up the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. This luxury product is packed with powerful anti-ageing ingredients that have been shown to reduce wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydrate in just 15 days. Rich in anti-oxidants, this cream improves suppleness and elasticity and dramatically helps with hydration and moisture levels for all skin types.

Before we let you go off and shop, one more product worth mentioning is the Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream. From the moment you use it, your hands will have a silky, protective barrier that locks in moisture and thanks to anti-oxidant omega 7 it helps fight ageing and repairs cell damage – winner. Perfect for your handbag or sports kit, this is all you need for beautifully smooth, firmer, younger looking hands.

4 Reasons to Never Sleep in your Make-Up

4 Reasons to Never Sleep in your Make-Up

Royalty-free image

Women of all ages know that sleeping in your make-up is a bad idea because it can clog your pores and lead to spots. However, there are actually a whole load of other reasons to wash your face before bed, some of which are actually far more disgusting than a few spots! Read on to find out why taking your make-up off before you go to sleep should be a high priority.

It’ll Dry Your Face Out

Unless you’re using entirely oil-based make-up, over the course of the day it will basically act like a sponge and soak up the natural oils in our skin. This is usually fine if it’s removed by the evening, but if it’s left on all night too it could dry your skin out quite drastically and in the long run your skin will end up dull and flaky. Use Decleor Brightening Cleansing Oil to remove all traces of make up and improve luminosity in the process.

It Could Cause Eye Infections

Even if you don’t have sensitive eyes, leaving eye make up on all night increases your chance of getting styes and eye infections by a huge amount. The longer you leave your make up on, the more likely it is that particles will flake off, getting into your eyes and potentially blocking the tear duct, and spreading bacteria in areas that you really don’t want it. Decleor Refreshing Eye Make-up Remover is a bi-phase cleanser which contains an oil to remove even the most stubborn waterproof mascara and is gentle enough for contact lens wearers.

The Days Pollution Can Cause Premature Ageing

It’s a well-known fact that pollution can contribute to premature ageing; the free radicals in fumes and air pollution damage skin at a cellular level and slow collagen production as well as causing dehydration. If you don’t wash your face after a long day, you’ll be leaving all of those nasties on your skin for even longer, letting them wreak havoc on your complexion. Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser is a great daily cleanser if you have combination skin as active extracts of lime blossom, lecithin and vitamin E help to balance excess surface oils and soothe the skin.

It Won’t Have a Chance to Heal

When you’re asleep, your body goes into recovery mode, using its resources for healing your body and repairing daily damage (ever wondered why spots usually happen over night? That’s your body pushing out the germs in your pores!). If your face is smothered in make-up, this will hinder your skin’s healing process, not letting it get as much oxygen as it needs and blocking pores along the way. Decleor Hydra-Radiance Smoothing and Cleansing Mousse is a rich cleanser which, when used with the accompanying cleansing cloth, lathers to a mousse-like texture, to deep cleanse and soften the skin leaving it clean and velvety soft.

Pure Beauty is the home of Sunday night treats

Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil

Ever get to the end of the weekend and feel more stressed than you did on Friday afternoon?

With busy social lives, the demands of family and friends as well as checking in on social media and emails, it is little surprise that Sunday is no longer a day of rest but the continuation of a hectic lifestyle.

Why not get the balance back and make Sunday night a time for you?

Turn your phone off, run a bath, light some candles and relax with a herbal tea and the sounds of the rainforest playing in the background.

We have a wide range of excellent projects at Pure Beauty that will let you close the door on the world and focus on you.

Whatever your skin type, adding Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts to your bath water will help you feel calm and revitalised. Packed with mineral-rich Sea Salts, natural Kelp, aromatic essential oils, spices and skin-smoothing enzymes, the salts gently exfoliate the entire body, leaving it ultra-smooth and softer than ever.

If cellulite plays on your mind and sits on your limbs, Sunday night is the perfect time to apply the lush Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil. This powerful blend of Sea Buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper essential oils detoxifies, nourishes and stimulates the skin, helping to smooth the appearance of cellulite and give you a real boost.

For a super Sunday treat, why not envelope your skin in the rich delights of the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Cream? This luxurious body cream has been enriched with Macadamia and Sesame seed oils that sink into the skin, leaving it deeply hydrated and silky smooth to the touch. Sweet scented Frangipani flowers, often referred to as the ‘Flower of the Gods’ have been infused with Monoi de Tahiti so that the cream leaves skin with a rich, warm exotic aroma that will fill your senses and calm your mind.

You might be rushing around in the week, but Sunday night is the perfect time to apply a masque and let it get to work as you paint your nails. We love the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque because it restores critical moisture to dry skin as well as restoring suppleness and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Bitter Orange, Hops, Cucumber and Arnica all help to reduce inflammation and thanks to antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E as well as Pro-Vitamin B5, when you wash it away, your skin will feel clean, clear and refreshed.

If you want to revive tired skin so that on Monday morning you look fresh and ready to take on the world, the Decleor Neroli Hydrating Night Balm could do the trick. This 100% natural product is the perfect way to hydrate your complexion as you sleep. Apply a little of the balm after cleaning, using soft, sweeping strokes and let the aromatic goodness melt into your skin and we think you will be impressed with the results you see the next day.

All you need now are clean sheets and the curtain closed and you are all set for a good night’s sleep before the start of a new week and a brighter you.
