Prepare to fight flaky feet

Spring is now officially under way, and the shops are now full of all the latest spring/ summer fashions. When it comes to fashionable footwear, one aspect that doesn’t change year upon year is the fact that toes are likely to be on show!

Whether your wearing the latest bang on trend open toe heels for work, or donning your trusty flip flops on your beach holiday, there’s no doubt that you won’t want to bare unsightly feet that will have people recoiling in horror!

After months of hiding feet away in thick socks and boots, it’s no wonder that most feet are now in need of some serious attention. Luckily, getting your feet back to their best isn’t too difficult a task, and choosing the right products is key in your mission for fabulous feet.

Arm yourself with Dermalogica’s fantastic Buffing Cloth and gently buff away all that dull, dry skin. Once your feet are feeling silky smooth, smother on a generous helping of Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream– for the ultimate foot conditioning treatment.

Now all that’s left to do is bag yourself a new pair of stylish sandals!

Give under eye puffiness the push

Many of us have experienced under eye puffiness at some point in our lives, and whilst it is generally harmless, it can be extremely annoying.

Causes of under eye puffiness include lack of sleep, too much alcohol, fluid retention and diet. If you can pinpoint the cause of puffiness to one of these factors, you’ll be pleased to know that they are all easily treatable.

Whilst getting a few extra hours sleep, cutting down on the alcohol and taking a look at your diet will all eventually have an effect, it may take a little time for the appearance of puffiness to improve.

However, there are some great short term measures that you can take in the meantime. Applying a cold compress to the area- such as an eye pack- is a great way of reducing their appearance.

Drinking plenty of water will also help to quickly eliminate any excess water retention, which should have an impact on the appearance. These measures are particularly effective in the morning, which is when puffiness is generally more prominent.

For an external solution, Dermalogica Total Eye Care is the complete package for perking up the eye area. Not only does it help to reduce the appearance of puffiness, it also protects and repairs this highly delicate area- making it a fantastic addition to your daily skincare regime.

Why it’s never too early to start your fight against the aging process

If you’re in your twenties, you may not have even started to think about the skin ageing process. However, one thing that can be said about the skin is that it can be very unpredictable, and many factors can contribute to the skin ageing process without you even realising- including daily sun exposure (even in the UK!), harsh weather conditions, late nights and a busy or stressful lifestyle.

This is why it’s so important to consider how you’re going to launch your battle against the ageing process before the signs even start to appear. Although dealing with the above factors will help to make a significant difference, you also need to think about adjusting your skin care regime.

During childhood and teenage years, a simple wash with soap and water is sufficient for most people. However, as the years pass, the skin’s needs change dramatically.

Keeping skin both hydrated and protected throughout the day is a must, and luckily there are some great products on the market that can help you with this.

Dermalogica have a range of products with fabulous anti-ageing properties to suit all skin types, which will put you firmly on the right track to fighting those ever-annoying fine lines.

Achieving shiny hair has never been so easy

You don’t have to be Cheryl Cole to know that you’re worth it- although what many of us do want to know is how we achieve Cheryl style hair without enlisting the help of an expensive celebrity stylist!

If your hair has seen better days, but you just don’t know where to start to get it back to its stunning, shiny best, you’ll be happy to know that it isn’t that tricky- and you won’t need an A-list bank account either!

Prior to your hair overhaul, any split ends need to be given the chop as a matter of urgency. Not only do they contribute to hair look frizzy and dull, if you don’t snip them away, they could spread and cause even more damage- meaning that your crowning glory could end up significantly shorter.

A quick and easy way of regaining lustrous locks is by bagging yourself a bottle of Dermalogica Shine Therapy Shampoo. Suitable for all hair types and daily use, it gives hair a new lease of life and gorgeous gloss.

For even deeper shine, follow up with Dermalogica Silk Finish Conditioner– for hair that really will have the X factor!

Getting the most from your dry skin products

Dry skin is a common skin complaint, which can affect people of all ages and all lifestyles. Dry skin is generally characterised by rough looking skin that is prone to itching and flaking.

Not only can dry skin be unsightly, it can also be extremely irritating. This is why it is of extreme importance that you invest in the right products in order to treat and control the condition effectively.

To keep skin as smooth and hydrated as possible, those with dry skin need to opt for products that have intense moisturising properties.
When applying skin care products for dry skin, it is important that you take the time to rub it in properly. This is essential as dry skin products tend to be quite rich and may take slightly longer to absorb.

To combat dry skin on the body, generously apply moisturiser straight after a bath or shower, as this will help to lock the product in, for the ultimate in hydration.

When applying a moisturiser for dry skin on the face, make sure that you don’t apply too much product, as this could lead to pores getting clogged. Facial moisturisers for dry skin are specially formulated to give intense moisture without the need to apply too much and make the skin overly greasy.

Dermalogica have a great range of products that can tackle dry skin and give it a nourished new outlook.
