Dehydrated skin can affect just about anyone

Dehydrated skin is no laughing matter, and those who suffer from it will understand just how much of a nightmare dealing with it can be.

Although some people naturally have drier skin, many of the factors which contribute to dehydrated skin can be avoided. Luckily, they can also be dealt with quickly as there are some great products on the market today which are specially designed to treat the condition.

You should begin your battle against dehydrated skin as soon as you start to notice the warning signs. Common symptoms of dehydrated skin include tight feeling skin and dry flaky patches. Skin could also feel itchy. Constantly dehydrated skin can also lead to skin aging prematurely- and this is nobody’s idea of fun.

Skin dehydration isn’t confined to any particular season or climate, and you can suffer from it whatever the time of year. In fact, central heating and air conditioning are both key culprits in contributing to dehydration.

Thankfully, through using the right products you can easily quench your skin’s thirst, and get it looking and feeling back to its best.

Dermalogica have an unbeatable range of products designed to combat dehydrated and excessively dry skin. From cleansers to moisturisers to masques- Dermalogica has everything that you need to give dehydrated skin the push.

Getting into the habit of really looking after your skin

The importance of an important skin care regime is drummed us time and time again, although some people are still really guilty of neglecting their skin! Despite warnings on just how much impact neglecting your skin on a regular basis can have, some people are still happy to ‘wash ‘n’ go’ every morning with a bar of beauty soap and hope for the best. Although the effects of this may not be apparent now, the negative effects WILL eventually show- by which time it may be a little too late to tackle any existing damage effectively.

This is why there’s no time like the present to get yourself into the habit of giving your skin the attention that it deserves, and once you’ve got yourself into a good routine, you’ll see a noticeable difference.

Cleansing, toning and moisturising are vital components of each and every skin care regime, and they are basic steps in getting your skin looking as stunning as possible.

Whatever your individual needs- whether you have a very hectic lifestyle or whether you’re one of the lucky few with a little more time on their hands- Dermalogica have a fabulous range of products which can help to form a fantastic regime for just about every skin type.

Looking after your skin properly is one habit that you certainly won’t be ashamed to admit, and with a helping hand from Dermalogica, the compliments are sure to come flooding in!

Washing makeup brushes regularly is essential

We all dread falling victim to spots and blemishes, and besides having a dent on your confidence, getting rid of them as quickly as possible can also feel like a task in itself. Wishing the days away and hoping that your blemishes will be gone by morning is no way to live your life, which is why it’s important to consider all of the factors that could contribute to these irritants appearing- even those factors which you may think are insignificant.

Although many people overlook them, grubby makeup brushes can be culprits when it comes to the appearance of spots and blemishes. It’s not difficult to see why either- think about the amount of products that go onto these brushes on a regular basis, then consider the amount of dirt and germs which can accumulate.

Ideally, you should wash your makeup brushes around once a month, although this could vary depending on how much you use them, the type of makeup you’re using and where you store them.

Wash brushes in warm water using a special solution or even a drop of very mild shampoo, then leave them to air dry naturally so that bristles don’t get damaged.

If you think that dirty makeup brushes may be contributing to spots, make sure that you wash them or invest in new brushes as a matter of urgency, and to clear up existing spots in the meantime, opt for an effective yet gentle Dermalogica Cleanser.

Reveal a beautiful body on the beach

It’s nearly bikini time, and although you may be getting seriously excited at the prospect of lying on a stunning beach, surrounded by beautiful blue skies and soft sand, the thought of baring all in your new bikini may not be such a pleasant one!

It’s natural to feel a little apprehensive about baring such a large amount of flesh after months of being cosily covered up in numerous layers, and for most of us our skin is in need of a substantial dose of TLC.

It’s never too late to get to work on improving your bikini body, which is a blessing for those with a holiday coming up in the next couple of weeks.

A good exfoliant and rich moisturiser are two of your key weapons in your quest for a bikini body, and will instantly help to improve the look of your skin. Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub and Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream are both fantastic products which will help to polish and smooth your skin- making it look much better in just a matter of minutes.

Once you’ve stepped out of the bath or shower and applied your moisturiser, try applying a little light self tan to give you a little extra confidence boost.

Take a look at your skin care now and really look forward to your beach break.

Don’t leave summer skin damage to chance

The sun is finally starting to shine regularly- and it’s certainly not before time! Although it’s all to tempting to throw open the curtains and rush outside into the warm sun, you need to make sure that your skin is properly protected before you even put one foot outside the door.

The suns rays can damage skin even when the skies are grey, so you can only imagine the damage that it could potentially cause when it’s bright and hot.

Going out into the sun with very little or no sun protection at all is extremely foolish- and the sunburnt look is never a good one. The skin on your face is particularly susceptible to sun damage, as it’s so exposed, which is why you need to make sure that you’re using an effective sunscreen.

Investing in adequate sun protection doesn’t mean completely changing your skin care regime and completely clearing out your bank account though, as Dermalogica has the perfect product.

Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster is a fantastic sunblock lotion which can be mixed in with your existing moisturiser, or even foundation.

With an SPF 30, your skin is protected against UVA and UVB rays and kept fully conditioned- leaving you free to enjoy the gorgeous summer sun whilst it lasts!
