The quick way to stunning skin

Everyone wants amazing skin, and with the sheer variety of amazing products that are available on the market today, achieving skin that you’ll want to show off is now easier than ever.

With the summer well and truly on it’s way, skin will be more on show than ever (provided we’re lucky enough to get a few more warm days!), so now is the perfect time to really make an effort.

After months of being wrapped up in winter woollies, it’s a pretty safe bet to say that most of us could do with giving our skin a little TLC, and a little time and attention is all it takes to get it back to its best.

Using the right products is key, and a hydrating body wash and moisturiser is vital. Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash is great for all skin types, and is soap-free to ensure that the skin is not stripped of any essential oils.

Moisturising after every bath or shower is also imperative, and helps to replace any lost moisture. Regularly failing to moisturise is the quickest route to dehydrated, dull, dry skin- which will leave it looking as though it’s seen far better days!

Start treating your skin now, and prepare to bare as the temperatures start to climb!

Don’t let dry skin get you down

Dry skin can affect just about any area of the body, although when it affects the skin on the face it can really dent confidence.

Dry skin is often not only a cosmetic problem- the itching and irritation that it can cause can feel unbearable. Whilst it may feel near impossible to resist the urge to itch, it’s best left alone as it can make the condition worse.

Dry skin can be caused by a range of conditions, so if it is particularly severe you should take a trip to your doctor.

Applying make-up can also be made to feel like a tedious task, as dry skin can lead to make-up looking flaky and uneven.

If you suffer from occasional dry or tight feeling skin, there are some simple steps that you can take to ease and eliminate the problem.

Firstly, you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough water, as a dehydrated body can directly lead to dehydrated skin. You should also ensure that your diet includes the recommended 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, as the vitamins and minerals that they provide are essential for healthy skin.

To treat the problem externally, invest in a product which has been specially designed for extra dry skin, such as Dermalogica Super Rich Repair cream. This amazing cream is designed to tackle even the driest and most weathered of skin, and effectively hydrates, improves elasticity and generally eliminates the tight feeling that dry skin creates.

So put your faith in Dermalogica and don’t let dry skin control your life.

It’s not always fair to share

One place where the old saying of ‘share and share alike’ doesn’t apply is your bathroom cabinet. Recent studies have shown that an alarming number of people choose to use their partners skin care products, rather than going out and buying their own.

Although sharing skin care products may seem like a great cost-saving solution, the benefits to your bank balance can lead to negative side effects on your skin- and is that really worth it?!

One of the most popularly shared products is moisturiser, although this a major no-no, as an effective moisturiser is one of the most important parts of any skin care regime, so picking any old product up off the bathroom shelf is anything but ideal!

If you’re sharing skin care products with your partner, there’s a very high chance that your skin will have very different needs. Different skin types have completely different requirements, which is why it is of extreme importance that you choose products which suit your skin perfectly.

Reaching for any skin care products that happen to be lying around could lead to a skin reaction, the appearance of spots and blemishes, and dry, tight feeling skin- which could even result in premature skin ageing.

Picking cost effective products which are specially tailored to your skin type is easy when you turn to Dermalogica. With such a great range of products which won’t break the bank, you’ll never need to reach for your boyfriend’s after-shaving moisturiser again!

Look after your skin today and you’ll be thanking yourself tomorrow

Many people in their twenties and thirties think that they’re far too young to be thinking about premature skin ageing, although this couldn’t be further from the truth.

If you start to look after your skin now, it will be in far better condition in years to come- plus, prevention is always far more effective than cure.

If you don’t want to find yourself in the botox clinic well before your time, give your skin a little TLC now and save time, effort and money in a few years time!

In order to stand your skin in good stead, it’s vital to follow a proper skin care regime- this means cleansing, toning and moisturising every morning and night WITHOUT fail! This will set you on the right track to combating the premature signs of aging.

In addition to your daily skin care regime, it’s also a good idea to exfoliate regularly, in order to shift stubborn dead skin cells which can make your skin look old before its time.

Dermalogica have a simply unbeatable range of skin care products that will help you in your quest to fight off those fine lines- which is why Dermalogica has top celebs all over the world singing it’s praises!

Songstress Katy Perry reveals her past skin woes

It’s not just us mere mortals that can become victim to annoying spots and blemishes, they can even affect A-list stars- as singer Katy Perry revealed.

Katy, of ‘I Kissed a Girl’ fame, recently told how she faced a battle with blemishes, which left her confidence in tatters.

Katy’s condition was so bad that facing the world was a task in itself, and she explained:

“I just wanted to hide. It was an amazing blessing to have clear skin.”

Katy, who is set to get hitched to comedian Russell Brand later this year, has recently been signed up to promote skin care- showing that skin problems can ultimately be overcome.

If, like Katy, you regularly suffer from spots or blemishes, in addition to assessing whether there is an underlying condition, it’s also important to religiously follow a good skin care regime.

Dermalogica have a great range of products which can treat spot and blemish prone skin, and they are key components in achieving a clear complexion.

Whether or not you’re a fan of Katy’s music, you can certainly take comfort in the fact that there is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to overcoming pesky skin problems.
