5 New Years’ Resolutions You Should be Making for Your Skin

Skin resolutions

With 2017 just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to take a look at your skin and work out if there’s anything you could be doing better. Today, we take a look at 5 New Years’ resolutions that you should be making to ensure your skin looks its best in the new year, and for many more years to come.

Keep it Clean

The first place to start with having better skin is by making sure it’s spotlessly clean, which means cleansing your face EVERY DAY, morning and night. Skin produces sebum overnight, so washing it first thing is a must. Cleaning it in the evening is also a good idea as it will rid your skin of the pollutants you’ve encountered throughout the day. Use Decleor Essential Cleansing Milk, which is suitable for all skin types.

Get More Sleep

Sleep is the time during which your body has the change to repair and regenerate and it’s essential to your wellbeing that you get enough. If you want your skin to look its’ best then you should make sure you squeeze as many hours of sleep in as you can manage – it will help prevent spots, dry skin and dark circles under your eyes.

Choose the Right Moisturise

It’s really tempting to head to the toiletries aisle in the supermarket and grab any old moisturiser, but this could end up being a fools errand if it’s not the right one for your skin. Work out if you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin or ageing skin before buying something a lot more specific to your needs.

Drink More Water

Dehydration can have many knock-on effects, especially with your skin. As well as causing your skin to be dry, it can also make your skin look dull, increase dark spots and make wrinkles and fine lines look exponentially worse. Staying hydrated will help to keep these things at bay.

Treat it Nicely

Even if you have a strict skin routine to which you stick, treating your skin to little extras every now and again will help to keep it nourished. Oily skin can benefit hugely from using Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque while teenage skin can be hugely improved by using Dermalogica Cooling Masque.

Maintain a Winter Glow with Dermalogica and Decleor

Maintain a Winter Glow with Dermalogica and DecleorIt only seems like yesterday that we were frolicking around during one of the best summers for decades, feeling all tanned and glowing. Now, we’re well into winter and most of us have well and truly lost that glow. But, fear not – even if a tropical holiday is out of your budget, Dermalogica and Decleor have some products to help you to regain your glow and feel a little more dynamic this winter.

Decleor Gradual Glow Hydrating Body Milk

Unless you’re legitimately olive or dark skinned, walking around with a Cuprinol-coloured tan at this time of year is never going to look natural, however many of us feel like we lack that “glow” without any level of tan. That’s why this gradual tanner from Decleor is so good; the colour builds over time and you can add more if you want to build colour, allowing you to avoid that instant Oompa-Loompa look that so many fake tans cause.

Decleor Brightening Cleansing Foam

Dull skin is super common during the winter months which is why we recommend switching your cleanser to this brightening foam, at least during the colder periods. It restores radiance to otherwise dreary skin and gives your face a boost of “White Focus” plant complex which regulates the skin’s pigmentation process.

Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint SPF30

If you’re wrapped up in layers from head-to-toe then it might be that you simply can’t be bothered with an all over tan. However, using Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint will not only give your skin a boost of mineral-based colour, but also offer SPF30 protection from the sun’s harmful rays, which can still be an issue even during the colder winter months.

Decleor Extreme Brightening Essence

Such is the power of this brightening formula from Decleor that it comes in three tiny bottles which contains just a little over two tablespoons of liquid. However, these little bottles pack a massive punch and are used over just thirty days to offer a massive boost to the skin’s brightness. Not only will this reduce the appearance of already-existing pigmented spots, it will prevent more from appearing, which is a real boon.

Decleor Face Tan Activator Serum

If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climes this winter and want to make the most of the sun while you’re there, we recommend this tan activating serum from Decleor. It prepares your skin for sun exposure and boosts the skin’s ability to tan and will ultimately prolong the life of your colour. It’s recommended for use before you apply your SPF and will have the added bonus of making your face feel super smooth after a few days’ usage.

Get perfect party skin with Pure Beauty

At Pure Beauty we pride ourselves on selling great products and giving clients first class advice. As well as our Midlands based salon, we also sell Decleor and Dermalogica products online with free delivery and great offers.

Work parties, Christmas drinks and events galore are fun but we also know the light nights, drinks and rich food can play havoc with your skin.

To help, we have chosen a few of our favourite party products that we think you, and your skin, will love too.

If you want your shoulders and back to glow in that new dress, you really need the Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash in your life. This soap-free, acid-balanced beauty must-have, leaves your skin clean and soft but doesn’t strip it of vital natural  moisture. It smells great because it is enriched with essential oils, so it also helps you de-stress as you shower and get ready.

With your skin clean, you also want it to be extra soft. For this you need the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream. This is more than a just body cream thanks to a mix of hydroxy acids and essential plant extracts that come together to smooth and condition the skin. Sugar Cane and Apple have been combined with Lactic Acid to restore dull skin. The power of anti-inflammatory Green Tea, Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile oils, soothe and soften. Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary oils all help hydrate the skin and lock in moisture. The result? Your best festive skin ever.

Whilst the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream sinks into your limbs, you will have time to give your complexion the TLC it needs. Start by using the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser. Water-soluble Kaolin and Green clays have been combined with Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon extracts to gently remove excess oils from the skin and refine texture. Calming Cucumber and healing Sage soothe irritation and refreshing Menthol revitalises tired, partied out skin.

For added hydration, that will last all night long, spray on the Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist. This acts as a brilliant antioxidant shield and comes complete with flash-firming properties that improve skin texture whilst intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin.

To add a further boost to your party skin, we would suggest using the gorgeous Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Serum. A silky smooth cocktail of vitamins and peptides are mixed with a sunflower butter base for a smooth, wearable feel. This is the perfect pick me up for drier or prematurely ageing skin and will make your skin feel tip top.

Last step, and this is an important one. Moisturiser. Out best-seller, and with good reason, is the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream. This is light, but effective cream moisturises, soothes and helps prevent the appearance of the dehydration lines that can make you feel self conscious. Apply to the face using, soft upward strokes and let the goodness of Mallow, Cucumber and Arnica soothe and hydrate your skin before applying your make up and getting dressed.

If you have any questions or would like samples, get in touch today and we would love to help.

Oh, an don’t forget, if you spend over £65 on one order of Dermalogica, you will get a free skin detox set that will be perfect for January!
