Buff those blemishes away

For many people, a bath or shower consists of the use of a body wash and a quick application of moisturiser afterwards. However, in order to keep skin looking in tip top condition it’s also important to exfoliate skin regularly.

Many people exfoliate the skin on their face religiously, although neglect body exfoliation completely. Perhaps one of the main reasons for this is the fact that, for much of the year, the body is kept well under wraps- hidden beneath layers of thick clothing. However, it now looks as though the weather is starting to change for the better, and spring is making its mark. The appearance of warmer, sunnier weather also calls for the appearance of more skin though- and this can strike feelings of fear in even the bravest of people!

It needn’t be that way though, as regularly buffing skin will ensure that it is well on its way to being skirt worthy all year round- so you won’t have nightmares about having to bear your blemishes!

Dermalogica’s Ultimate Buffing Cloth is perfect for buffing beginners, and gently gets rid of dull, dead skin that is a prime suspect in the appearance of blemishes- which are a big no-no when you want to bare your legs in the latest mini skirt!

Use in conjunction with Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash for soft, smooth skin that you will be aching to show off!

Get your skin squeaky clean

If you’re using a cleanser that is unsuitable for you skin, it’s all too easy to fall into the trap of thinking that your skin is clean, whilst in reality this couldn’t be further from the truth!

In order to keep your clean looking as fresh and clear as possible, it’s important to take your time and choose a cleanser that is not only designed for your skin type, but that is also suitable for your lifestyle.

For example, if you tend to wear a lot of make-up on a daily basis, or work in a dusty or dirty environment, a simple gentle cleanser might not be enough to give your pores the thorough cleanse that they so badly need.

If spots and blemishes have started to appear, and you feel that it may be because your cleanser is letting you down, it’s simple to get your skin squeaky clean and feeling really refreshed.

Firstly, Dermalogica Precleanse will get cleansing well under way, and will penetrate deep into the pores for the ultimate deep clean.

Next, you need to assess your skin type and choose a cleanser accordingly. Again, Dermalogica have an unbeatable range, so whether your skin is dry, oily or combination– there’s a product to suit.

Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser is perfect for shifting stubborn dirt and oil, and will make your skin feel truly amazing and is ideal if you have excessively oily skin.

Cleanse your skin the right way, and experience the feeling of fresh skin like never before!

Don’t let office air conditioning ruin your skin

Many of us image conscious ladies wake up early every weekday in order to do our hair, make up and generally get ourselves looking the best that we possibly can and ready to face the day ahead.

Spending precious minutes at the mirror getting ourselves looking pristine takes dedication- particularly on those mornings when getting an extra 15 minutes in bed is seriously tempting!

Even for those who wear the bare minimum make up to the office, it is less than satisfying to see that our skin is looking a little shiny and worse for wear by lunchtime!

As the warmer weather is starting to appear, more and more offices are switching off the central heating and reaching for the air con switch, and this can play havoc with your skin.

Even for those who don’t usually suffer with any form of skin complaints, air conditioning can make skin look shiny and even feel dehydrated.

For this reason, you need to choose a moisturiser that is able to help combat both problems. Dermalogica Active Moist is the ideal solution, as its oil free formulation moisturises effectively without promoting any excessive oiliness.

It’s also a good idea to carry a light powder or blotting papers with you for those quick touch ups throughout the day, in addition to ensuring that you drink plenty of water.

Keep skin looking as fresh as when you left the house just by paying a little extra attention.

Preparing your skin for self tan application

With spring looking as though it may be starting to make an appearance, many of us are already starting to feel a little anxious about the thought of having to bare a little more flesh!

Spring and summer fashions are far less forgiving than our faithful winter woollies, and arms and legs are put on show. After months of covering up in thick, baggy clothing, it’s little wonder that the thought of displaying acres of bare flesh to the world can be daunting!

This is why self tan is a Godsend for so many people. We all know the dangers of sunbeds and the importance of protecting our skin from the suns harsh rays, which is why self tan is the perfect alternative.

However, after skin has been covered up for months and months, it could be feeling a little dry and dehydrated. This isn’t the ideal base for applying self tan- which needs a smooth foundation in order to achieve an even, non-patchy look.

The key to preparing your skin for self tan applications is a little gentle exfoliation and an intensive moisturiser.

There are two Dermalogica products that are perfect for this purpose- their Exfoliating Body Scrub and Body Hydrating Cream. Both products will gently but effectively get your skin in perfect condition for your fake tan- so your can bare your gorgeously tanned skin with confidence.
