Love your sensitive skin

Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30

For many it can be problematic, embarrassing and expensive, but with the right products, you can learn to love your sensitive skin.

Signs of sensitive skin include tightness, uneven texture, flakiness, dehydration, reactions to the weather, blemishes and so many other irritations.

At Pure-Beauty we offer a range of products that keep issues to a minimum and offer sensitive skin the TLC it craves.

We love the Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 and it’s really popular with our customers too. This
chemical-free, broad spectrum sunscreen helps not only protect the skin but also reinforces the complex barrier lipids that can be an issue for sensitised skin. An exclusive UltraCalming™ Complex helps reduce inflammation, redness and  irritation and a phytochemical blend soothes and strengthens connective tissues. Pat evenly and liberally onto your face, preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure, or mix with your Dermalogica moisturiser then apply.

If you skin is dry or sensitive, or both, Elemis Sensitive Cleansing Wash is ideal for you. Extracts of Thyme, German Chamomile and Lady’s Mantle, all well known for their natural anti-bacterial properties, calm and sooth as you cleanse. The rich foam gently conditions and moisturises without stripping away oils and maintains the natural acid balance of the skin.

If you really want to get to grip with a tricky complexion, we suggest going for the Elemis BIOTEC Skin Energising Day Cream Sensitive. Scientifically proven to help increase cell energy, this cream contains zinc and copper which work together to help activate the skin’s own power of bio-electricity and encourage improved cell energy. Wow! Barley Seed Extract and Cupuacubutter calm irritation and redness and the skin is left looking smooth, youthful and moisturised for up to 12 hours.

If you have sensitive skin, some foundations can make matters worse, but using Dermalogica’s Ultra Sensitive Tint with added SPF30 could just save the day. This broad spectrum sunscreen is tinted with earth minerals so not only does it protect your skin against UV damage, it also offers subtle coverage. Packed with health loving antioxidants in the form of Grape Seed and Green Tea extracts as well as Mint and Coneflower, the skin is calmed and soothed and blushes are spared.

If you want to restore stressed and dehydrated skin, we suggest trying the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque. While it can be used on all skin types, the blend of calming botanical extracts of Bitter Orange, Hops, Cucumber and Arnica mean skin is soothed and Vitamins A, C and E help repair damage and ease lines. Use on the face and throat once or twice a week and allow the masque to absorb into your skin for ten to fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water and then apply your moisturiser.

If you do have sensitive skin, you might be interested in using the Elemis Luxury Cleansing Cloth Duo. These luxury cleansing cloths are lightweight and soft on the skin, making them a soothing alternative to polishing cloths. They maintain heat when run under water so you can naturally deep cleanse each time you use them and when you wash them in the machine, they come out as good as new.

If you are generally feeling tired and sensitive, the Elemis De-Stress Massage Oil not only melts tension but also eases stressed skin. Rosewood, Melissa, Marjoram, Geranium, Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile oils have been blended together and work wonders on those stubborn areas that need a little extra love.

One Pot of This Elemis Product Sells Every NINE SECONDS!

There’s a product within the Elemis ranges that we sell which is so popular that it’s sold every nine seconds around the world – almost 10,000 pots per day! What’s most remarkable about this fact is that the product in question costs £82 for a 50ml pot, which means that although it’s not cheap, people are still willing to pay the price for such an incredible beauty buy, seeing it as a wise investment into the future of their face.

So, which Elemis cream is flying off the shelves at such astonishing rates, and is it really worth the hype? Well, the product is Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and we think the answer is a big fat YES!

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream

What Does it Do?

The long and short of it is that Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a moisturising anti-wrinkle cream, but that’s a bit like calling the Mona Lisa “just a painting”! Just 15 days of use has been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness, tone and hydration of your skin, and also improve skin suppleness and elasticity, thus creating the ultimate anti-ageing cream from ELEMIS.

Who’s It For?

One of the things which we think makes this product so popular is the fact that it’s suitable for all skin types. If you’re concerned about wrinkles or the signs of ageing, this is for you, no matter whether your skin is oily, dry, sensitive, or a combination of them all.

What Makes it So Good?

That’s a complicated answer which probably begins with the highly-scientific formula of ingredients. Firming padina pavonica and anti-oxidant rich ginkgo biloba improve skin suppleness and elasticity. Unicellular algae is rich in moisturising and restructuring essential fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E, and free radical scavengers. Absolute of rose and mimosa creates a powerful synergy which ensures maximum hydration and helps strengthen the elasticity of the skin whilst providing anti-oxidant protection.

What Else Do We Need to Know?

As well as containing some of the most effective ingredients of all beauty products around, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream also falls in line with the Elemis promise, which means that it contains no SLES, no parabens, no mineral oil or artificial colours and no DEA, meaning you can have ultimate confidence that everything you’re putting on your skin will be highly beneficial.

Chamomile, not just for tea

Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser

When you think of chamomile, you tend to automatically think of the herbal tea that helps lower stress levels, regulate sleep and boosts the immune system.

However, it is the soothing qualities of this plant that can also have a positive impact on our skin. Due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich nature of chamomile, it is found in a variety of beauty products and some of those are stocked on the Pure-Beauty website.

One of our favourite new products is the Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser. Specifically created for sensitive skin, this cleaner gently removes dirt and dissolves make-up without upsetting the natural balance of the skin. The unique formula contains extracts of Chamomile, Lecithin, Vitamin E and F which come together to soothe the skin and leave it feeling nourished and soft.

If your complexion is sensitive and prone to redness, chamomile can really help. The Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster is a concentrated, oil-free blend of botanicals that calm and hydrate irritated skin. Soothing Red Raspberry, Honey and calming flower extracts, including Calendula, Chamomile and Cornflower, reduce irritation and restore natural moisture levels. Just a little massaged into clean skin can make a big difference from the very first application.

If you suffer with dark spots and shadows under your eyes, you might want to try the Decleor Anti-Dark Circle Multi-Brightening Eye Care. A unique White Focus complex has been enhanced with Vitamin C and Chamomile to help reduce puffiness as well as hydrate and smooth the skin leaving it looking clear and bright.

Chamomile is great at dealing with the inflammation associated with breakouts, which is why it’s one of the key ingredients in the Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier product. While this is a medicated treatment it is also packed with Cinnamon Bark Extract, Green Tea and Chamomile to offer a holistic approach to acne. After cleansing simply apply Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier sparingly to areas prone to excess oil production and breakouts and let it get to work.

During the winter months, our bodies can get tired and dull and this is where the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream comes into play. This advanced body cream is full of essential plant oils that smooth and condition the skin so it can deal with the elements and central heating. Hydroxy acids from sugar cane and apple are mixed with Lactic Acid which together combat dryness. Green Tea, Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile oils have been blended to soothe and soften the skin and essential oils of Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary help hydrate it and lock in much-needed moisture.

Elemis De-Stress Massage Oil is a popular product at Pure Beauty and is the perfect way to soothe the mind, melt tension and leaves your body feeling free and relaxed. Essential oils of Rosewood, Melissa, Marjoram, Geranium, Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile have been blended together to create a deeply relaxing potion that helps bring dry, tired and mature skin back to life.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Dermatologist At Bay!

An Apple a Day Keeps the Dermatologist At Bay!

November is a big time in the apple harvesting calendar, with many varieties ready to pick and enjoy in crumbles, pies and other delights, but did you know that apples contain enzymes which are really good for your skin? Several of the products we sell contain some element of apple power, so we’ve put together a handy list for you to look through so you can see which products to choose when you shop for the ‘apple’ of your eye!

Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream

This moisturiser from Dermalogica may seem like a generic body lotion that you just slather all over yourself, but it actually contains a whole load of essential plant oils and hydroxy acids, from apples and sugar cane, which resurface your skin, leaving it smoother and more supple. Green tea, lavender, tea tree and chamomile oils soothe and soften the skin with their anti-inflammatory properties, while essential oils of sandalwood, orange, clary sage, patchouli and rosemary help to hydrate the skin and keep the skin moisturised for longer.

Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash

Wish so many cleansers it feels as though there’s a constant battle between being powerful enough to really clean away impurities but not being so powerful that it irritates your skin. This gentle foaming facial wash from Elemis has been formulated with that in mind and harnesses apple amino acid which helps produce the foamy texture and protects the skin’s moisture barrier while keeping your skin perfectly clean.

Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer

These handy little pouches give a perfectly measured daily dose of resurfacing cream which uses botanical skin brighteners and hydroxy acids from apples to totally transform your complexion. Unlike other similar products, they prevent any redness or irritation while helping to even skin tone and balance pigmentation.

Elemis Smart Cleanse Micellar Water

Micellar water is probably one of the trendiest products on the market right now, with almost every beauty brand offering their own version, and Elemis is no exception. Hydroxy acids from apples combines with organic English rose water and soothing anti-oxidant rich Chamomile, so that skin is gently cleansed, whilst the natural moisture barrier is maintained. Regular use with leave your skin looking radiant and refreshed.

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Although it’s called a ‘lip’ treatment on the tube, this is actually a perioral treatment meaning that it can be used to combat fine lines and crows feet around the whole mouth and under-nose area. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Nightly Lip Treatment uses this moisturising saccharide complex extracted from dried apples to help enhance skin hydration and smooth lips. Smoothing this area will help the whole face to appear more youthful.
