Kick Eye Bags Out of Your Christmas Stocking!

Although Christmas is supposed to be a holiday, for most adults it can be the most exhausting part of the year. Between shopping, cooking, work parties, nativity costume making, present wrapping and all the other things we do to make it magical for our families, it often feels like we barely have time to sit down from the beginning of December until well after new year. The following products will help you to fight the signs of fatigue like eye bags and dark circles, to keep you looking your best for Santa.

Decleor Anti-Dark Circle Multi-Brightening Eye Care

Dark circles can be hard to combat, especially if you have naturally very fair skin as the contrast can make the dark areas all the more obvious. Concealer can help, but targeting dark circles with this specifically formulated eye gel is guaranteed to instantly tone down dark circles. It also smoothes the area and reduced the signs of fine lines, improving the appearance of he whole area.

Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex

Although this eye cream is aimed at the anti-ageing side of things, it can also be a powerful ally against the signs of fatigue, too. It contains a whole load of scientifically-derived ingredients which combine to tackle many problems at once, such as crows feet, dark circles, puffiness and hyper-pigmentation. It also harnesses the power of caffeine to address redness and puffiness by constricting capillaries.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks

These individually wrapped eye masks are designed with the delicate eye area in mind, combining powerful ingredients such as padina pavonica and chlorella, which provides an instant skin-tightening effect. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the fragile eye area, allowing the skin to retain more moisture, avoiding that drawn, tired look. Eye contours are left looking visibly smoother and feeling intensely moisturised.

Decleor Dark Circle and Eye Wrinkle Eraser

This imperfection-eraser has a unique gel-cream texture which contains illuminating yellow pigments to counteract dark circles alongside yeast extract while ruscus extract reduces the appearance of dark circles. The tube has a unique applicator which allows you to gently sweep the product over the delicate eye area without causing any excessive dragging.

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

Tiredness might be one thing that affects us at Christmas, but STRESS is definitely another, and this lifting eye treatment is designed to melt away the signs of stress from around your eyes. It firms skin to help generate a lifting effect while visibly de-puffing the under-eye area. Finally, it energises skin and helps restore skin barrier integrity.

Let it snow with Pure-Beauty

Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream

As they do every year, the media are sending out a flurry of stories about how we are going to have the coldest winter ever and that record snow falls will see us stuck at home for days on end.

While we question the reality of these predictions, thanks to Pure-Beauty you can enjoy snow like products all your round that will make your skin look and feel great whatever the weather.

Rather than causing chilblains and red raw skin, the snow like products we stock help to sooth and calm the skin so it looks as fresh as the first fall of the white stuff.

If you are looking for a product that is as pure as the driven snow for your sensitive skin, you might find it with the Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser. Vitamin E and F have been blended with rose petal water so that when applied to the face, it not only removes dirt and make up, but also hydrates and purifies the skin leaving it clean and radiant.

Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance is rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and humectants which means it can help restore moisture and bring the perkiness back into pinched complexions. Perfect for dry and prematurely ageing skin, this creamy, snow like lotion is packed with Vitamins A and E to help protect the skin against the elements while extracts of Grape Seed and Wild Yam reduce the signs of ageing, leaving skin smoother and firmer.

For skin that looks as smooth as ice, we suggest trying the Decleor Extreme Brightening Essence. This powerful brightening elixir gets to work on blemishes and pigment spots and restores clarity. A plant complex has been mixed with pure Vitamin C to help regulate the skin’s pigmentation process and offers a natural energy boost. Regular use of this active treatment leaves the skin looking radiant with the luminous, healthy glow you get after a week of skiing in the Alps.

If you want to ease dry skin, nothing hits the spot quite a little a soak in hot water infused with Japanese camellia oil and snowy oat extract. This is the science behind the Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath, which leaves skin feeling nourished thanks to a milk protein base that is rich in vitamins, amino acids and minerals.

Just like snow melts into the ground, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm melts into the skin. This beautiful cleansing balm gently dissolves make-up, grime and pollution leaving your skin feeling cleansed, nourished and renewed. Luxurious Rose and Mimosa waxes have been infused with Elderberry, Starflower and Optimega oils as well as anti-ageing algae and the result is super soft skin that radiates health.

If you want hands that are as soft and pure as alpine snow, keep a tube of Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream in your handbag. The luxurious silicon-free cream is instantly absorbed by the skin and thanks to Avellana Seed oil, Camellia, Virgin Plum and Macadamia, a silky barrier is formed so hands are left youthful and soft to the touch and you are left with a hint of sweet vanilla.

If you’re attending a wedding this winter, or are maybe the one getting married, it’s likely that skincare will be one major thing on your mind as everyone wants perfect skin in wedding photos. Cold weather presents it’s own set of problems when it comes to taking care of your skin, so we’ve put together a guide to help you choose the right products for keeping your skin in fabulous condition for the upcoming nuptuals:

Decleor Intense Brightening Mask

Cold weather, central heating and dark days can have a truly dulling effect on the skin, leaving the skin lacking luminescence, so using a product to enhance your brightness is essential before a big occasion. These sheet masks from Decleor refresh, hydrate and brighten dull and pigmented skin types using peony, tamarisk and liquorice extract. Your skin will glow after using these masks!

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque

If you have problematic skin, then you’ll want to get it under control before the wedding. Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque is an all-in-one treatment that detoxifies, brightens and invigorates your skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and will leave your complexion clear, balanced and bright.

Decleor Intense Nutrition Nourishing Cocoon Cream 

Not only does this rich moisturiser replenish the hydration within your skin, it also encorages lipid production, which improves your skin in the long term, too. It performs a number of functions, such as balancing the skin, offering a protective layer and preventing dryness and tighness, making it the perfect product to use in the winter months.

Elemis Sensitive Cleansing Wash

Keeping your face clean is essential, but if your skin is dry or sensitised because of the cold it can be hard to find a cleanser which doesn’t exacerbate things. This cleansing wash from Elemis is made for skin which is dry and sensitised and replaces soap with its high grade proteins to cleanse without harshness. It maintains a perfect pH balance of the skin and can even be used on intimate areas, as well as your face!

Decleor Nourishing Body Milk 

It’s not just your face which can suffer with dryness in the winter months – your body can suffer too, after spending days on end wrapped in warm clothes. If your outfit reveals a bit of skin, you want that skin looking perfect, so give it a layer of this nourishing body milk from Decleor. It  envelops the skin in a protective and comforting layer of moisture to reduce feelings of discomfort, tightness and roughness.

Drift Away With Elemis Body and Bath Products

For many of us, our daily washing is done in the shower, but the time spent in the bath is when we take a little longer to unwind and pamper ourselves. Baths are great for relaxing muscles, making us sleepy before bed and generally washing away the stresses of the day, so we thought we’d introduce you to some of Elemis’ bath and body products to make your bathing experience even better:

Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak

Hot water by itself will do a pretty good job of soothing your muscles, but this Aching Muscle Super Soak from Elemis increases the effect by using powerful aromatherapy deep heat treatment which relieves aching muscles and joints after exercise and physical work. It’s great for easing period pains, swelling and stiffness  and even boosts a sluggish circulation to improve healing.

Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush 

Bathing is the perfect first step of exfoliation, as it helps to soften dry, dead skin cells, ready for removal. The Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush is made from natural cactus bristles which help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation and softening the skin. Regular brushing can stimulate the flow of the lymph glands and reduce swelling in the hands and feet.

Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil 

This oil is designed to work as part of an anti-cellulite routine and is ideal for application after a bath (and a thorough brushing with the product we mentioned above!). It contains a powerful synergy of sea buckthorn, sea fennel, lemon and juniper, which combine to nourish, detoxify and stimulate the skin, help to smooth the appearance of cellulite and can even combat the build-up of toxins caused by poor diet, stress and lack of exercise.

Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub 

If the aim of your bathing is more to energise yourself, then this scrub from Elemis is perfect for you. The peppermint scent invigorates the senses and gently cleanses and smooths the body, whilst removing tired skin cells. It removes dead skin cells and deep cleanses whilst gently stimulating the skin and is especially effective on problem areas such as feet, knees and elbows.

Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow

As well as doing an incredible job of buffing the skin to exfoliated perfection, the combination of ingredients in this Salt Glow actually helps to stimulate your metabolism, making it great if you’re focusing on diet and exercise, or even if you’re just feeling a little sluggish. It also improves skin absorption, meaning that any other products you use on your skin will be even more effective than usual.

Flower power at Pure Beauty

Elemis White Flowers Eye and Lip Make-Up Remover 

The power of flowers isn’t something to be underestimated.

They can brighten up a rainy day, show someone they are loved and can also help care for your skin.

For centuries, people have been using the power of flowers and plants to help soothe and improve the skin and today, more than ever, we are looking to more natural options when it comes to looking and feeling great.

At Pure-Beauty we sell a range of outstanding products from leading brands, all of which harness the goodness of nature.

The Elemis White Flowers Eye and Lip Make-Up Remover is made with White Peony extract and is the perfect way to hydrate delicate skin. The formula has been Ophthalmologist tested and with the added benefit of White Water Lily, it tones and refreshes the eyes and lips as you cleanse.

Lavender, Aloe Vera and Coneflower are all plants with a purpose as each one helps reduce sensitivity and soothes the skin. All three are found in the Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant, a popular product on our site. This gentle, non-abrasive exfoliant removes dead cells and debris from the top layer of the skin and helps improve texture as well as aiding hydration.

While Japanese camellias are popular with gardeners because of their glossy, deep green leaves and brilliant blooms, beauty lovers are pretty keen on them too. The Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil Blend can be used to keep nails, hair, scalp and skin in tip-top condition. The light oil is easily absorbed and because it is rich in plant collagen, it keeps skin moisturised and supple – a winning combination.

Soothing Rose Flower Oil is the perfect way to calm sensitive skin and this is why the Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser works so well. This gentle but effective, two in one product cleanses and exfoliates the skin in one easy step, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Apply to damp skin, then massage into the face and throat using light, upward strokes for half a minute, then rinse with warm water before toning and moisturising.

Rosehip oil offers the skin natural nourishment and has outstanding repair qualities, which is why it has been used in the gorgeous Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Rich Cream. As part of the Hydra Floral range, this moisturiser has a velvet finish and is perfect for when skin needs extra care as the seasons change and temperatures plummet. As well as Rosehip oil offering essential fatty acids, Wild Pansy Extract moisturises and Avocado and Soy Plant oils, known for their nourishing properties, offer comfort. Sunflower extract has been added to protect against the elements and the result is a cream that hydrates and cares for all skin types.

Blended with nutrient-rich oils and exotic extracts, we adore the Elemis Sweet Orchid Body Cream. This luxurious body cream has sweet notes of Oriental Orchid, Vanilla and Citrus and keeps skin supple and scented. Japanese Stone Orchid, Japonica and Mauve Butterfly Orchid have been blended together and intensely hydrate, nourish and soothe dry, tried skin that needs a little extra TLC. Suitable for all skin types, massage the cream into your skin morning and evening and let the power of nature get to work.
