Treating a blemished back

Many people have less than flawless skin on their back, and just because the problem isn’t instantly visible, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t as much of an annoyance as suffering from spots or blemishes on any other part of your body.

The problem with looking after the skin on your back is that it can be difficult to reach, and as we can’t immediately see our backs without the use of a mirror, it can be tricky to determine what condition it is actually in.

Like other parts of the body, spots and blemishes on the back can be caused by a variety of factors- including blocked pores, stress, diet and hormonal changes.

With the warmer spring and summer months just around the corner, many of us will be flashing a great deal of flesh on a regular basis- especially those lucky enough to be going on a foreign holiday. Thankfully, if you start to tackle the issue now, your back will be looking bikini worthy in plenty of time.

The most important part of your back clearing battle is to ensure that skin is squeaky clean. A great way of improving the look and condition of the skin is by alternating between Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub and Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash. The body scrub will help to gently buff away dead skin cells- which will help to keep pores clear, and the body wash is fantastic for ensuring a thorough cleanse without drying out the skin.

However tempting it may be, make sure that you leave any spots on your back well alone- as this could only make the problem worse!

Bare your back with pride this summer, and make annoying spots and blemishes a thing of the past.

Reveal bright and beautiful skin

We all want to look our best, and the condition of our skin plays a major part in this. Bright, healthy looking skin gives a youthful glow, and can really enhance our overall appearance.

Many people think that the only way that they are every going to achieve brighter looking skin is by undergoing expensive surgical procedures and peels, although this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Just by paying a little extra attention to your skin, and picking the right products, you can give it a whole new lease of life.

Drinking plenty of water and keeping yourself hydrated can help to make skin look fresher, as can following a healthy, balanced diet.

Your skin care regime is also an extremely important factor in determining how your skin looks, so you need to ensure that you pay a little attention to it.

Cleansing, toning and moisturising in the morning and evening is imperative in keeping your skin looking healthy- as well as for keeping those pesky spots and blemishes at bay.

A great product for brightening up your skin and giving it a little pick-me-up is Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. Unlike some exfoliants, this product is gentle enough to use as part of your daily skin care regime, and removes dead skin cells to reveal brighter, smoother skin.

A few simple steps, and you can give your skin a much brighter outlook this spring.

Dermalogica Samples

Over the last few weeks many of the Dermalogica Samples we offer have been in and out of stock. The situation has not been too bad recently but we are afraid that the situation over the next few weeks will become much worse.

We placed an order with Dermalogica UK Limited on 25th March and discovered that many more samples were now out of stock and therefore unavailable to us. We were so concerned about the situation that we contacted the Operations Manager of Dermalogica UK Limited and he very kindly explained that ‘All out of stock samples have now been dispatched from our production in the USA, however the current shortage of container space on the shipping lines means our containers have been delayed twice. We currently expect to receive these mid April.’

We are afraid that this will mean over the coming week that we will be unable to supply samples with our orders.

We would like to apologies to all of our customers in advance for this inconvenience. We expect normal stock levels to return mid April when at which point we will gladly send samples to you. These will need to be requested when we have the samples in stock.

Please note that any samples that you have ordered through our system will be included in your order. If we have stock of the samples they will be available to order. If we do not have stock they will be unavailable to order.

Skin care tips for twenty somethings

When you’re in your twenties, skin is likely to be in the best condition that you will ever see it. With the spotty teenage years firmly in the past, and with fine lines and wrinkles still in the future, the skin of those in their twenties often still looks as fresh as a daisy.

However, you shouldn’t allow this to lull you into a false sense of security, as failure to take proper care of your skin during these years could lead to rapid and premature skin ageing once your thirties start to approach.

To keep future fine lines at bay for as long as possible, it’s essential that you assess your skincare regime and determine whether or not it is sufficient to keep skin looking and feeling smooth and healthy.

Ensure that your cleanser is effective enough to remove any oil, dirt and makeup, yet gentle enough so that it doesn’t strip skin of essential oils.

Even when the sun isn’t shining, it can still cause damage to skin. This is why it’s important that your daily moisturiser contains a protective SPF.

It is mentioned over and over again, but it really is important to keep your skin hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.

If you’re looking for products will stand your skin in good stead for years to come, Dermalogica have a wide range that are just the job.

Poor nutrition could adversely affect your skin

There are many fantastic skin care products on the market today, which can help to revitalise your skin and make it look flawless and stunning.

However, in order to get the best from your skin care products, it’s important that you also look at other factors that could have an effect on your skin.

One factor that can determine the condition and look of your skin is your diet. In order to function properly and stay healthy, our bodies require some essential nutrients- the majority of which come from your food intake.

If you regularly live off junk food and processed meals, there’s a high chance that your body won’t be getting all of the nutrients that it needs. This in turn can lead to your skin looking dull and dehydrated.
To keep your skin looking as fresh as possible, make sure that you fill up on fresh fruit and vegetables, and also drink plenty of water.

Dehydrated and under nourished skin is particularly susceptible to prematurely developing fine lines- meaning that the effects of a poor diet can be long lasting.

If you feel that you may be guilty of neglecting your diet, make sure that you start to make a conscious effort to improve it straight away.

To help to combat the external effects of a poor diet, Dermalogica have a fantastic line of products that are great for tackling premature skin ageing and dehydrated skin.
