It’s that time of year when we’re all starting to get back out into the garden again, after a winter of neglect, which means that our hands and nails will take a battering from all the digging, trimming planting and pruning. Taking care of your hands required specific products which are potent enough to deal with such a well-used body part, so we thought we’d take a look at the best products from Decleor, Dermalogica and Elemis to help you along.

Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Hand and Nail Cream

This hand and nail cream from Elemis is a treat for the body in many ways. As well as being nourished and reparative for damaged nails and dry hands, the delicate scent is a treat for the olfactory sense, too. They contain natural ingredients and no parabens or Sodium Laureth Sulphate which means you’ll be using the best natural ingredients to nurture your green fingers.

Decleor Ongles Nail Strengthening Serum

There are lots of reasons for brittle and splitting nails, including dehydration and repeated impacts, so gardening can play havoc with your nails. Decleor offers a special serum which is formulated to help strengthen the nails by replenishing the natural oils and softening the cuticles. Regular use has been proven to make nails stronger and able to grow longer.

Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream

Many women complain that their hands are one of the hardest areas to treat when it comes to anti-ageing, which is why Elemis have designed a hand and nail cream for exactly this purpose. The all-natural formula helps to even out the skintone by removing hyperpigmentation, as well as plumping the delicate skin on the backs of the hands which gives you beautifully smooth, firmer, younger looking hands.

Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment

This hand and nail treatment from Dermalogica really is a gardener’s delight, combining sweet almond oil, algae extract, ginko biloba, grape seed oil and vitamin E (amongst other natural ingredients) to actively soften the hands, protect against further damage and make the hands look younger. It also strengthens nails, alleviating splitting and breakage and relieves dry, cracked cuticles.

Elemis British Botanical Hand and Nail Butter

The name of this “butter” really does conjure up images of a luxurious, unctuous, oily cream which adds masses of moisture to dry skin, and that’s exactly what it does. Made from shea butter, it also harnesses the power of burdock, palmarosa, geranium and other quintessentially British botanicals to give an intense ‘glove’ of moisture to the hands whilst smelling fabulous!

Say bye to sensitive skin with Dermalogica

Sensitive skin blights the lives of many and it can be painful and noticeable, causing embarrassment and stress.

Red patches, dryness, blemishes, itchy patches, tingles, tightness and stinging can all be classed as sensitive skin and at Pure Beauty we can help.

We stock the Ultra Calming System from Dermalogica, a range that is designed to help relieve the discomfort of skin sensitivity, and it is popular with our customers for a good reason – it works.

If you do have sensitive skin, you need to ensure it is carefully cleansed and this is where the Dermalogica UltraCalming™ Cleanser comes into play. This soothing, pH-balanced gel cleanses the skin without stripping away the protective barrier that can be so easily damaged. Regular use helps calm and cool the redness of sensitised or highly reactive skin. Use morning and night and rinse away with water or wipes to reveal, softer, happier skin.

If your skin is sensitive, you might think that toners are a no, no. This isn’t true and the Dermalogica UltraCalming™ Mist can prove that. This is a soothing toner that not only hydrates the skin but also defends against inflammation, helping your skin recover from damage and lipid barrier breakdown. Use the spray after cleansing to help skin prepare for ultimate moisturiser absorption.

Next apply the Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair. This is an amazing moisturiser that melts into sensitive skin to soothe and repair damage. This product creates a barrier against the elements and helps combat free radicals and moisture loss. Silicones provide a velvety feel and after applying it you are left with a smooth, even base and soft skin.

If you need added protection from the sun, Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 is worth a try. Micronized, mineral sunscreens shield against damaging UVA and UVB rays whilst antioxidants and botanical extracts guard against premature ageing and irritation. The sheer formula offers priceless hydration and helps protect and reinforce the barrier lipids that are often compromised in sensitised skin conditions.

Just because your skin is sensitive, it doesn’t mean that you can’t look amazing and this where the Dermalogica UltraCalming™ Redness Relief Primer SPF 20 comes into play. Natural botanical extracts provide a sheer tint to deal with redness and Broad Spectrum protection diffuses redness and calms irritation. This product offers translucent, redness-reducing make-up preparation and is perfect to be worn under Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint.

If we are yet to convince you of this range, why not try the Dermalogica UltraCalming Sensitised Skin Treatment Kit? This affordable, handy set contains everything you need to start dealing with the flare-ups that can make life miserable and social situations tricky. Coming in at less that £25, this kit contains Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser (50ml), Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair (10ml) and Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist (50ml). It also gives you the chance to try the Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum Concentrate. This silky, super concentrated serum helps treat, correct and defend skin against inflammation and redness and can be used on even the most sensitised skin.

Whether you’ve got issues with your eyes, mouth, neck or bottom, most women have an area which they’d love to be a little firmer. Today, we’re looking at some of our favourite products from Dermalogica and Decleor which help you to get rid of all the wobbly bits that you hate, with minimal effort.

Dermalogica UltraSmoothing Eye Serum

If you’ve got sensitive skin, it can be hard to find products which are both powerful and delicate enough to attack the signs of ageing without causing irritation. This eye serum from Dermalogica is designed to intensely firm the skin while remaining completely neutral for sensitised skin. Brown and red algae and golden chamomile helps minimize puffiness, as oat kernel extract helps soothe fragile skin.

Decleor Intensive Youth Concentrate

Decleor developed a unique combination of ingredients called the “Lift Jeunesse Complex”, which is designed to actively firm the skin and provide immediate lift to the face and decolletage. Their Intensive Youth Concentrate is packed with this clever complex and will reactivate collagen synthesis, reorganise, consolidate and tighten the dermal mesh, acting like a real “cell lift”.

Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist

As well as acting as a powerful antioxidant when spritzed onto the skin, this mist from Dermalogica will hydrate the face and offer flash-firming properties which give an instantly more youthful visage. It also creates a barrier over the skin to prevent further damage by free radicals, making it a powerful ally in the fight to firm-up.

Decleor Sculpt Stretch Mark Restructuring Gel-Cream

If the wobbly parts causing you to worry are decidedly more south than your face then this gel-cream from Decleor is perfect for you. It’s designed to be used on areas of your body where stretched skin might be an issue, especially after pregnancy or weight loss and can help to tone and firm the skin of your thighs, bottom, breasts and upper arms.

Dermalogica Extra Firming Booster

This liquid booster from Dermalogica performs a number of functions; boosting the skin’s moisture and firmness levels, erasing fine lines and reversing dryness as well as protecting skin from antioxidants and reversing the signs of ageing. It contains seaweed extract, high levels of vitamin C and protein peptides which all combine to give a powerful firming action.

MediBac – the Dermalogica way to treat adult acne

Dermalogica Breakout Control

There is nothing more disheartening than having to use an eye cream as well as spot cream as part of a grown up beauty regime.

Popular belief is that acne is something suffered by teenagers, but the reality can be quite different. Problem skin can affect anyone at any age and can be emotionally devastating, taking away confidence and lowering self-esteem amongst even the most assertive of us.

Fluctuating hormone levels, genetics, stress, environmental factors and diet can all play a part in skin issues. As well as addressing these, it is also vital to use products that are best suited to your skin and the problems it faces.

At Pure-Beauty we stock MediBac from Dermalogica and our customers love it, because it works. MediBac is powerful, effective treatment plan that has been specifically formulated to treat, clear and prevent adult acne.

One of the most popular products in the range is Dermalogica Breakout Control. This is an invisible treatment cream that clears, controls and prevents breakouts without the drying effects of Benzoyl Peroxide. The gentle, yet effective, fast-absorbing formula is applied before moisturiser and immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Oil-absorbing sponges control excess sebum and a unique blend of natural botanical ingredients help soothe skin.

When you think of spot treatments, heavy, industrial, strong-smelling potions spring to mind, this couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion. This amazing product is as light as a feather and packed with clever micro-sponges that absorb the oil sitting on the skin’s surface thus helping to combat shine. Perfect for oily skin that is prone to breakouts, regular use helps control sebum production, soothes and mositurises irritated skin as well as helping to eliminate congestion and prevent future breakouts. This product does contain Salicylic Acid which can irritate very sensitive skin, but in general it is a fantastic way to deal with problem complexions and transform them.

If your skin is oily and you need a medicated topical treatment to help with breakouts, give the Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier a go. Used after cleaning, this product is excellent at reducing congestion and also controls the annoying shine many complexions suffer from. Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin purify the skin and Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles helping to stop further breakouts. Cinnamon Bark Extract helps reduce spots, while Green Tea and Chamomile extracts soothe the inflammation associated with breakouts. The overall results lead to smoother, happier skin and peace of mind.

Even acne prone, oily skin needs a good moisturiser, and that’s why so many of our customers love the Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF30. This lightweight, ultra-sheer sunscreen not only protects the skin from damaging UV rays but also helps prevent shine, regulates oil production and soothes painful inflammation.

With your skin clean and well cared for, you might also want to cover any blemishes and this is where the Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment comes into play. This is an intense, tinted treatment that naturally conceals breakouts as well as helping to clear them up. It gets to work fast and during the day will help eliminate the bacteria associated with acne while clearing congestion so future breakouts are minimised. Win, win!
