The benefits of exfoliating

We all know how important it is to cleanse, tone and moisturise, and although these steps go a long way in keeping your skin looking its best, there are other steps that should be followed on a regular basis.

In order to keep skin in peak condition and looking as fresh as possible, it’s important to shift any stubborn dead skin cells that may get in the way of skin looking anything less than amazing. This is where exfoliation comes in.

Many people think that cleansing, toning and moisturising is the be all and end all when it comes to skincare, although this couldn’t be further from the truth, and regular use of an exfoliant is a key part of any skincare regime.

Exfoliation has many benefits, and is the best way of shifting any dead, old skin cells. Without exfoliation, these old cells can leave skin looking dull and dry, and can also block pores- which could lead to spots and blemishes.

Dermalogica have a fantastic range of exfoliants, which will leave skin feeling smooth, supple and better than ever before.

There are Dermalogica Exfoliants available for either daily or less frequent use, so you can pick a product according to your personal needs. Either way, your skin will be given a whole new lease of life- leaving it looking simply stunning!

Keeping your pores unclogged

It’s a pretty safe bet to say that all of us have suffered from an unwanted spot or blemish at some point in our life, usually when we have a big party or photo opportunity coming up!

The occasional spot or blemish is one of life’s unexpected annoyances, and although they are sometimes impossible to prevent, there are steps that you can take to help to keep them away.

One of the main reasons why blemishes appear is down to blocked pores. It’s important to keep pores as clean as possible, otherwise you could wake up with an unwanted addition to your skin.

Whatever your skin type, it’s vital that you invest in an effective cleanser, and use it religiously morning and night. Dermalogica have an unbeatable line of cleansers that are specially tailored to different skin types– so you can be sure than your skin will be left squeaky clean without feeling dry and dehydrated.

For those who wear make-up, taking it all off before your head hits the pillow is absolutely vital, as heavy make-up combined with a days worth of grime are prime culprits in the appearance of spots.

Allow your pores to breathe easy and experience clearer, fresher skin.

Breakouts don’t mean plenty of products

If your skin is prone to annoying breakouts, it can be all too tempting to head down to your local chemists in a mad panic and arm yourself with as many products as possible! However, this is not the solution, and in addition wasting precious pounds, you could end up making your skin worse.

When it comes to the appearance of a breakout, many people smother their skin with cleansers, moisturisers and make-up in order to try and make spots or blemishes less noticeable. This is not the ideal course of action though, as a build up of heavy products can not only make any imperfections more noticeable, they can also clog pores.

Pores constantly need time and space to breathe, especially when a breakout occurs. This is why it’s so important to invest in a product that can treat the breakout effectively whilst not being overly heavy on the skin or making it greasier.

Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier is the ideal product to apply during a breakout, as not only does it help to clear any blemishes, it additionally controls shine and helps to calm any inflammation. These properties are fantastic, as they mean that lots of separate products don’t need to be used.

Keep your products to a minimum and your skin will really thank you for it!

Give your entire body some TLC

When it comes to skin care, many people concentrate all of their efforts on their face and neglect the skin on the rest of their body.

Whilst it’s true that following a proper facial skin care regime is absolutely essential, it’s also equally important that you look after the skin on the rest of your body.

Baths and showers can really zap your skin of moisture- making it look and feel dehydrated. This is why smothering yourself in a highly moisturising body lotion after every wash is imperative. From a vanity point of view, regularly failing to moisturise your body can lead to the appearance of stretch marks- particularly when combined with speedy weight gain or weight loss.

The best time to moisturise your body is straight after a bath or shower, as this can help to lock moisture in and allow the product to work to its full potential.

If you neglect the skin on your body, it won’t be long before your skin starts to feel dry, tight and itchy- particularly in very hot or cold weather.

If you’re looking for skin care products that you can use on a regular basis, Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash and Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream are the perfect partners, which will leave your skin feeling silky smooth- giving it the TLC that it so badly deserves.

Eye spy with my little eye- perfectly perky peepers!

One of the first places which can give an insight into the current state of your health is your eyes. If you’ve been under the weather, under stress or you’ve simply been burning the candle at both ends, your eye area will really start to show it.

The skin around the eyes is significantly more delicate than the skin on the rest of the face, which is why it often doesn’t take much before it starts to look a little worse for wear.

Nobody wants one more thing to add to the stresses of everyday life, which is why it’s best to try and tackle the problem before it has the chance to worsen or have a permanent effect.

Thankfully, getting the eye area looking back to its perky prime isn’t too difficult, provided that you put in a little effort and pick the right products.

Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair is the perfect product to give your eye area a little TLC and a major pick me up. Designed to tackle dry and prematurely ageing skin, it will restore much needed hydration and suppleness to the area.

In addition to applying a product such as Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair, you also need to get to the root cause of the problem in order to try and stop it from reoccurring.

Repair your eye area and look at the world more brightly!
