Control oil and regain your skin confidence

It’s amazing how even the most harmless of skin conditions can have such an effect on your confidence, and for those who suffer with oily skin, keeping it under control can feel like a 24/7 battle.

Many people suffer with oily skin, and taming it on a day to day basis can be a real struggle. Excessively oily skin can affect people of all ages, men and women, and more often than not, there is not a great deal that you can do to change it.

However, there’s no reason why you should let oily skin take over your life and get you down, and by adhering to a few steps and using the right products, you can make a significant difference.

It’s important that you try and use products which are specifically designed for oily skin, as using those which are designed for other skin types could make skin even shinier.

Although it can be all to tempting to skimp on the moisturiser, this is a major no-no, as even oily skin needs to be kept properly hydrated.

Thankfully there are some fantastic daily moisturisers for oily skin on the market nowadays- with Dermalogica Active Moist being a staple part of many people’s skin care regimes.

Another fab product that has received rave reviews for its great oil control properties is Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion- which helps to keep shine at bay throughout the day without drying skin out.

Give your skin care regime a little overhaul and flaunt flawless matte skin all day long.

Rehydration is really easy

Many people suffer from dry skin, and as there are so many factors that can contribute to skin feeling drab and dehydrated, it really is no big surprise.

Climate, illness, diet and lack of a proper skin care regime are all key culprits in making skin a little parched. Not only can dehydrated skin feel awful, leaving skin in bad condition and failing to treat it properly will also start to make it look less than lovely.

Applying makeup to dry skin can be a nightmare, and there’s a very high chance that any makeup that you do apply will look flaky and uneven- which is never the best look!

However, if you do suffer from dry skin there’s no reason to panic, as it’s relatively quick and easy to get it looking and feeling silky smooth again in no time at all.

Apart from identifying and addressing the issue of what exactly is causing your skin woes, you also need to make sure that you invest in the right products to tackle it.

Dermalogica have an unbeatable range of products that are designed to treat even the most traumatised of skin, and their Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is the perfect place to start.

Trust Dermalogica to make skin rehydration quick and easy.

Bring the spa to your bathroom

With many of us leading increasingly stressful jobs and busy lifestyles, it is now more important than ever to make sure we take time out to relax and recharge our batteries.

Many people who want to soothe away their stresses opt for a weekend away at a spa, although these breaks can be very expensive. However, it’s not too difficult to bring the spa to your own home- and you can create a peaceful and relaxing environment with ease.

Invest in some scented candles and place them around the bathroom, and make sure you have your favourite magazine or book to hand.

Recreate the spa experience by investing in some top quality products that will get you well on the way to the ultimate relaxation.

Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts are fantastic for soaking away the day’s stresses, and a combination of essential and purifying oils makes it the perfect way to really unwind.

Another fab stress buster is Dermalogica Stress Relief Treatment Oil, which can be added to your bath to help you forget your troubles.

Treat yourself to a relaxing spa- style soak and refresh your mind and your body.

Start thinking about your summer holiday skin care

If you’re lucky enough to be escaping the country for a much needed bit of hot sunshine this summer, now is the perfect time to start thinking about your skincare regime.

It’s all too easy to get over-excited with buying all of those new holiday clothes and beach towels- which means that your skin care regime is pushed firmly to the back of your mind.

However, you should definitely give it a prominent position on your holiday ‘to-do’ list, otherwise you could be risking some severe skin damage.

When it comes to beach holidays, many people are so determined to get a deep tan that they think that skipping the SPF for a few days won’t make a lot of difference. The truth is though, that just a few days in hot Mediterranean sun can cause serious irreversible damage.

You will need at least an SPF30 if you’re travelling to sunnier climes, and you need to ensure that your face as well as your body is fully protected.

Dermalogica Solar Defence System has a great range of products that can help you to keep sun damage at bay. With products these effective, there’s simply no excuse for risking permanent damage to your skin, (not to mention your health.)

Now all you need to do is sit back and hope that the dreaded volcanic ash doesn’t strike again!
