Refine Your Look With Pure Beauty

When we think of someone who is refined, usually an upper class person who is well-educated and well-dressed springs to mind, however, when it comes to beauty, one doesn’t need elocution lessons or a personal dressmaker to be refined! Here at Pure Beauty, we stock several products which help to “refine” your skin, and we’ve compiled a list of five of the best:

Decleor 1000 Grains Body Exfoliator

This exfoliator from Decleor is designed to refine the skin by ridding you of the top layer of dead cells and revealing the fresh, new skin beneath. It contains pearl sugar, argan shell and orange peel with fruit acids (grape, pineapple and passion fruit) to both physically and chemically slough away dead skin and leave your skin feeling smoothed and refined.

Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser

This clay mask and cleanser is perfect for oily skin as it wicks excess sebum away from the face and refines the skin’s surface. It contains cooling cucumber and healing sage to calm over-sensitised skin while extracts of  sambucus, ivy and lemon soother the skin and prevent future breakouts of spots, blemishes and oiliness.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Gel Mask

This gel mask is so potent that it cannot be used on the delicate eye and lip areas, so caution when applying should be taken! It helps to refine and smooth the skins surface, while encouraging effective re-texturising of the skins surface and balancing sebum levels, without compromising natural pH levels.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

Refining products needn’t be abrasive, and this cleanser from Jan Marini is proof. It’s a gentle, totally soap-free formula which refines the skin, leaving it clean and nourished. It contains glycolic acid as a follicular cleansing aid and resurfacing agent and it enhances the benefits of other glycolic acid products, when used together as part of a daily regime.

Decleor Body Refining Oil Serum

This oil serum is designed for all-over body usage and is associated with self-massage techniques to keep the skin soft and supple. It’s made from 100% natural origin ingredients, and is concentrated with essential oils of grapefruit and patchouli known for their aromachological energizing and stimulating properties. Regular use refines the skin and soothes the senses.

Dark Circles – What Causes Them and How to Get Rid of Them

Dark Circles – What Causes Them and How to Get Rid of Them

There’s not much that can make you look more tired than having dark circles around our eyes, but are they really caused by tiredness and, apart from sleep, is there anything we can do to combat them? Read on for the lowdown on dark circles:

What causes them?

According to Eye Health Web, there are a number of causes for dark circles – “Dark circles have a variety of different causes. Besides alcohol and lack of sleep, illnesses also cause these circles to appear. The combination of a fair complexion and thin skin if often the culprit. Dark circles under the eyes can appear in childhood, and are often an inherited trait. Some children will outgrow them, but others will not. Nasal congestion can dilate the blood vessels that drain from the area around your eyes, causing them to darken. Sleep deprivation is the most common cause, and the easiest to prevent, but oversleeping can also cause dark eye circles.” Stress is another cause, as well as ageing because our skin gets thinner as we get older.

What can we do to prevent them?

There are a number of great products which are hugely effective in the battle against dark circles. Here are five of the best:

Decleor Intense Glow Dark Circle Corrector

This dark circle corrector is a complete eyecare product, which contain caffeine to stimulate drainage, vitamins B3 and CG help to protect and brighten the eye area and orange pigments deliver an instant illuminating effect.

Elemis Absolute Eye Mask

Masks are a great treatment for the delicate eye area and this one increases cell renewal and revitalises a fatigued eye area. It can be used twice a week and will reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex

This eye complex from Dermalogica does a multitude of things, including reducing wrinkles and crow’s feet plus puffiness, dark circles due to hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity due to dehydration.

Sagging skin is one of the more annoying signs of ageing, but one which most of us have to deal with at some point. As we age, our bodies’ ability to produce collagen, the thing that sustains the skins structure, and we usually need a little extra help to keep our skin feeling firm and tightened. We have several products which help to deal with sagging skin, and these are five of our favourites:

Decleor Intensive Youth Concentrate

This product from Decleor contains the highest concentration of the remarkable L-PROLINE Complex to reactivate collagen synthesis, helping to lift, firm and tighten the skin. It reorganises the skin on a cellular level, giving immediate results and works best when used as a 3 week intensive duo treatment in the morning and evening with AROMESSENCE™ Iris Serum.

Jan Marini C-ESTA Serum

This serum from Jan Marini contains a high concentration of vitamin C which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains DMAE, hyaluronic acid and vitamins B and E, which combine to tighten facial contours, erase wrinkles and give the whole face a more youthful appearance.

Elemis Pro-Definition Night Cream

This night cream from Elemis contains gardenia stem cells, arjuna and lupin and is specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of sagging jowls, cheeks and chin, some of the most common places for loss of tightness. It gives an immediate firming effect and re-contours the whole face, especially when used alongside Elemis Pro-Definition Eye & Lip Contour Cream.

Decleor Lift and Firm Day Cream

This cream from Decleor is a real triple-threat – not only does it give skin a deep wash of moisture, it also tightens the skin and adds radiance. Key active ingredients include L-PROLINE complex to help reactivate the skins firmness, iris essential oil to boost the skins elasticity and high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids to fill in wrinkles on the surface.

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

The eyes and mouth are really common places to experience sagging, which is why sometimes we need targeted help in these areas. It’s a highly potent product which generates a lifting effect, energises the skin, brightens under eye circles and gives the whole eye area a more youthful look.

Wrinkles – Why You Get Them and What to do About it.

For many of us, wrinkles are just a fact of life, something that happens once we reach a certain age and are just a sign that we’re getting older. There are, however, many different causes of wrinkles, and knowing those signs means that there are things you can do to try to combat them. Read on for four of the most common causes of wrinkles and what you can do to combat them:

Sun Exposure

One of the most common causes of skin ageing is prolonged sun exposure. The sun’s rays strip the skin of vital oils and speed up the ageing process, so the most important thing is to avoid the sun and never use sun beds. The sun can also cause hyperpigmentation, which are dark spots on the skin which get worse as we age. Jan Marini Daily Face Protectant contains broad-spectrum protection which will help to decrease the risk of cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.

Dryness

It’s a fact that dry skin will look older than oily skin because it lacks moisture and plumpness. It’s important to stick to a strict regimen of moisturising products, and that doesn’t just mean moisturiser. You need to opt for cleanser, toner, moisturiser, eye creams and other products which ALL add moisture to the skin, rather than stripping it away. The Elemis Pro-Collagen range is perfect, and even includes a moisturising balm which removes make-up!

Smoking

We hate to go all preachy, but smoking is bad for you in SO many ways, not only because you’re effectively sucking poisons into your body, but also because there are things in the actual smoke which clings to your skin and speeds up the ageing process. Quitting is going to be the biggest step towards minimising the damage, but using Elemis Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask helps to restore a glowing complexion, or when the skin is looking tired and dull as a result of smoking.

Stress

We all know that stress is bad for us, physiologically, as it literally causes the blood to thicken and can have many knock-on effects. However, stress also has more obvious ramifications, such as frown lines, which deepen as we age and our bodies can no longer produce the collagen. Yoga is a fabulous way to combat stress, and we also recommend investing in a tube of Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque, which can help to combat the signs of stress.
