Looking after your lips is important for so many reasons; aside from the fact that chapped lips can look unsightly, they can also be painful, not to mention the fact that the lips are one of the first places to show the signs of ageing. Fortunately, we stock several products which will keep your lips in the best possible condition and even reverse some of the early signs of ageing – read on to find out which would be the best for you:

Elemis Pro-Definition Eye and Lip Contour Cream

The skin around the eyes and the mouth are very similar in a lot of ways; the skin is thinner and more delicate than other places on the face, but they’re also both areas of movement which means they’re subject to more wear and tear. Smoking, frowning, laughter and other repeated activities can indelibly affect the eyes and mouth, but this cream from Elemis will deeply moisturise the thin, dry skin around the eyes and mouth, and make vertical lip lines appear finer and smoother, revealing a plumper, more youthful and renewed skin texture.

Dermalogica Lip Renewal Complex

This lip treatment from Dermalogica can be used daily like a normal lip balm, at least twice a day, to keep the lips moisturised and supple. It also contains ingredients which will minimise fine lines, fight against damaging free radicals, reduce contour lines and eliminate rough skin. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which holds over a thousand times its weight in water, provides maximum skin hydration for delicate lip tissue.

Elemis Lip Revive

Some lip products are sold as products which will give your lips moisture, but use a petroleum base which may feel as though it’s moisturising your lips, but will ultimately dry them out further. This lip balm from Elemis is based on white bees wax, which is a natural, non-drying base, rich in vitamins and nutrients for the skin. The peppermint will add zing to your lips and will both help to soften the lips while also giving a slight plumping effect.

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Night time is often when we use our most potent products, and this lip treatment is no exception. It comes with a dedicated applicator and helps to restore volume around the lips, smoothing out fine lines and improving elasticity in the area. It can be used nightly, before bed and after cleansing the face, and should be massaged in and around the lips with the tip of the tube for maximum effect.

Elemis White Flowers Eye and Lip Make-Up Remover

With the current popularity of long wear and matte lipsticks, removing your make-up at the end of the day is trickier than ever, which is why a dedicated remover is often needed to tackle it. This make-up remover from Elemis has been designed specifically to tackle tough-to-remove eye and lip make-up and harnesses the power of white flowers for both gentle but effective cleansing.

Feeling the lemon love at Pure Beauty

Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil

Did you know that the little yellow lemon can help with the treatment of throat infections, indigestion, constipation, fever, rheumatism, burns, obesity, respiratory disorders and high blood pressure,? Well it can and it can also really benefit your hair and skin too.

At Pure Beauty we sell a range of products from Dermalogica, Decleor and Elemis that are packed with amazing, natural ingredients including the wonderful essential oil of lemon.

One of our most popular products on the site is the Dermalogica Active Moist light weight, oil-free moisturiser. Perfect for normal to oily skin, this smooth cream easily absorbs into the skin to create a protective invisible barrier that prevents moisture loss. Silk Amino Acids help smooth skin texture and extracts of Lavender, Mallow and Cucumber provide deep-hydration but the the botanical extracts of Lemon, Ivy, Watercress and Burdock that help refine the skin so it looks super healthy.

Dealing with a cellulite and toxins doesn’t have to mean an expensive trip to the spa. The Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil is a unique blend of Sea Buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper essential oils and the perfect ‘at home’ body detox programme. Rubbing a little warm oil into problem areas such as the tummy, buttocks and thighs can help combat the build-up of toxins and as the oil nourishes, detoxifies and stimulates the skin, it is left feeling satin soft and smooth.

If your skin is feeling a little tired and dull, why not give Decleor Hydra-Brightening Lotion a go? This refreshing, rebalancing toner combines essential oils of Lemon, Acacia Wax and Camomile which together breath life into the dullest of complexions. From the first use skin is left feeling softer and visibly glowing and over time you will find that vibrancy and radiance are restored.

If you have a busy life full of strains and stresses, you need to try the amazing Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm. Packed with a unique blend of essential oils this clever little pot of goodness really does help create a sense of harmony, tranquillity and relaxation. The Eucalyptus essential oil clears the mind and focuses concentration while anti-inflammatory, Centella Asiatica, reduces stress and anxiety. Ho Wood helps with relaxation and Lemon essential oil comes into play to create those lovely feelings of positivity. Simply warm a little balm between your finger tips, rub into your temples, close your eyes and feel all that misery fade away.

There is something exhilarating about washing the day away from your skin and if you can use a shower product that clears your mind too, even better. We love to do this with the gorgeous Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash. Packed with powerful essential oils and natural extracts, your body mind, body and soul are cleansed. Thanks to essential oils of Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary rather than the skin being stripped of natural moisturisers, it is gently purified and left feeling smooth and conditioned.

If you want your skin to exude health and vitality, a balance diet, lots of water and plenty of sleep is a good place to start. If you need a little extra help, you need the Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm which will instantly brighten your complexion and make you feel fantastic. An advanced vitamin complex helps improve elasticity and firm up skin. Neroli, Orange, Bergamot and Lemon create a beautiful, uplifting aroma for a luxury product that can be used on all skin types as a radiance booster, or as a make-up primer.

Our Favourite Facial Oils

Facial oils can have a number of functions; they’re great at removing make-up, especially the waterproof stuff, they can deeply moisturise, balance sebum and do absolute wonders for the signs of ageing. Here at Pure Beauty, we offer a number of different facial oils in our rages, but today we’re highlighting five of our favourites, each for performing a different beauty-related function.

Elemis Superfood Facial Oil

Superfoods are so called because they contain high levels of anti-oxidants, which make them fantastic ingredients for beauty products. This facial oil from Elemis harnesses the superfood power from broccoli, flaxseed and daikon radish, which combine to deeply nourish the skin, leaving it with a healthy glow and radiance. It’s non-greasy and is formulated in line with the ELEMIS Promise, meaning no artificial nasties on your skin.

Decleor Micellar Oil

Micellar products are huge right now, and it’s all in the science of how they work. Micelles are tiny particles of oil which are suspended in water and make removing waterproof make-up a doddle. They also help to trap moisture into the skin, helping your skin to remain hydrated and totally clean all at the same time. The fine oil particles kick-start your microcirculation to boost radiance and leave skin revitalised and nourished.

Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil

Treatment oils are great for so many things but many of them are for occasional use. This Phyto Replenish oil from Dermalogica is designed to be used daily and is intended to give a wash of moisture to dehydrated skin. It uses a combination of organic oils such as chia seed and tamanu oils to strengthen the skin, bolster its natural barriers and create a luminous shield against future antioxidant damage.

Elemis Nourishing Omega-Rich Cleansing Oil

This oil is amazing at gently cleansing the skin because it softens any dirt and impurities and delicately lifts them away from the skin, rather than needing harsh ingredients to wipe them away. It contains vitamins and minerals from pomegranate which leave the skin looking healthy and radiant, and is ideal for those with oily skin as it protects the skins natural balance and prevents sebum overproduction.

Decleor Brightening Cleansing Oil

The beauty of this cleansing oil is that it turns into a milky lotion when it comes into contact with a wet face, which eliminates even the most stubborn traces of make-up and daily dirt. It helps to reveal a radiant complexion, especially if you feel that your natural complexion is dull and lacks luminosity and regular use will improve your complexion in the long-term.

Get a clear start on acne

Being a teenager can be fun, boring, exciting, exhausting and everything in between. Add acne into the mix and that can be one thing too many to deal with. Selfies need to be filtered, make up has to be maxed out and if a date is coming up, it might be cancelled for fear of ridicule or rejection.

Clear Start by Dermalogica is a range of reasonable, easy to use products made for teenage skin and most importantly, they work.

As with any skincare routine, you need to cleanse and this is where the Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash comes in. Intended to be used morning and night, this cleans and purifies skin without stripping away the delicate, much-needed natural oils. Orange Peel and Tea Tree oils energise and refresh the skin while Salicylic Acid takes way dead skin cells and trapped oil so future breakouts are managed. African Whitewood Bark Extract and Tea Tree Oil are both anti-inflammatories and work together to deal with bacteria and ease redness and inflammation.  Meadowsweet protects against excess sebum production so even after the first use, skin feels soft and soothed rather than sore and angry.

Toning in the teenage years might seem a but much but it works and you are never too young to get into good habits. The Dermalogica All Over Toner is a cool, refreshing spritzing toner that is packed with gentle botanical extracts which refresh, energise and revive the skin. The easily absorbed tonic can be used on the face and neck as well as on any parts of the body where spots occur. Regular application can help control excess oil and eliminate breakouts as well as refresh and rehydrate the skin.

The next step is to moisuturise and this is where the Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser SPF15 comes into play. Thanks to a blend of oil-absorbing ingredients that clean up surface shine, this offers TLC and hydration where it is most needed. White Birch Extract contains the natural antiseptic that soothes and heals irritations while Burdock Root Extract helps hydrate and calm the skin so it is left feeling rested. The other great thing with this cream is that it has a broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks damaging UVA and UVB radiation, something we all need to consider and the teenage years are a good time to start.

We have all been there when spot has appeared from nowhere, and for this you need the Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix. Sounds dramatic, but this topical formula kills bacteria that is found deep in the pores so breakouts are stopped, fast. This is ideally used at the first sign of a spot and we suggest a small amount is applied, before moisturising, with a clean finger-tip or cotton bud, and make sure it dries before any other creams or make up are used.

If these products look good but you don’t want to splash cash if you aren’t 100% sure, why not try the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit? This comes with five key products to get things started and we think once your teen tries them, you’ll be back for more.

Embracing ALL Skin Types with Pure Beauty

Embracing ALL Skin Types with Pure Beauty

Royalty-free image

When you have a really specific skin type, searching for cosmetics and skin care which suit you can be utterly exhausting at times. However, every so often we happen upon a product which is designed to help ALL skin types, making it the real MVP of skincare! Today, we’re rolling out five of our favourite “suitable for all skin types” products to show you that sometimes, it’s okay to deviate from skin-specific products.

Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant

There are some exfoliators which are simply too harsh to use on ageing skin, while others aren’t abrasive enough to cope with dry, flaky skin. This cream exfoliant from Dermalogica contains a multi-part complex of Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Sulphur and fruit enzymes designed to detach dead skin debris and promote cell renewal for a smooth complexion. As well as sloughing away dead skin, it also reduces sensitivity and redness by using lavender, aloe vera and coneflower.

Decleor Refreshing Eye Make-up Remover

Have you ever wondered what the technical name was for a product which has two distinct liquids in one bottle? Well, in this case it’s a “bi-phase cleanser”, which basically means that it uses both water and oil to do two different jobs. The camellia oil tackles the harder-to-remove waterproof products, while the cornflower water soothes and refreshes the face, ready for toning. It’s a highly effective combination and is fine to use on any and all skin types.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

This cleansing balm works quite unlike any other cleanser in that it goes on the skin and dissolves any make-up and grime. Sumptuous rose and mimosa waxes are saturated with nourishing elderberry, starflower and optimega oils and supercharged with anti-ageing algae. It can be smoothed over the face and decolletage and swept away with a cotton pad, or left on the skin for longer as a treatment mask.

Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream

Not only does this hydrating cream deeply nourish the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and hydrated, it also smells breathtakingly good! The cream is infused with oils of green tea, lavender, tea tree, chamomile, sandalwood, orange, clary sage, patchouli and rosemary – quite the olfactory combination! It’s a lightweight cream which can be used on all skin types but contains natural humectants which help to hydrate even the driest skin conditions.

Decleor Hydra-Radiance Cleansing Mousse

Decleor has managed to create a product with this mousse which both cleanses the skin and helps to restore radiance. It will deeply cleanse whilst polishing and perfecting the skin, leaving the face looking bright and refreshed. Even the dullest skin will be improved with regular use and it, like all of the other products in this list, can be used on all skin types.
