Curing cracked heels

Putting on the highest pair of stilettos possible is every woman’s prerogative, and the discomfort that can follow is just one of the sacrifices that we make in the name of fashion.

As great as they look, wearing the latest styles of shoes can leave our feet in a bit of a sorry state (you only have to look at Posh’s bunions to see this!)

Wearing ill fitting and uncomfortable shoes are a common cause of cracked heels- which can be both painful and unsightly. There’s no need to confine those stilettos to the back of the wardrobe and reach for the flats though, as you can sooth and repair cracked heels by following a few simple steps.

The first step in your fight against cracked heels is exfoliation. The thought of exfoliating raw, cracked skin may be slightly unpleasant, but trust us- it can make all the difference. Using The Ultimate Buffing Cloth by Dermalogica, in conjunction with Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash, can help to gently but effectively eliminate roughness and reveal fresh, smoother skin.

After exfoliating, your next step is to use an intensive moisturiser, such as Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream– which is specifically designed to intensely hydrate extra dry areas without leaving behind a greasy residue.

So, combat cracked heels and wear your stilettos in style this spring.

The importance of moisturising your skin after a hot bath

There’s nothing like a nice hot bath to soothe away the stresses of the day and give your skin a thorough cleanse- particularly in colder weather.

However, if you prefer taking long baths rather than quick showers, after time your skin can start to get seriously dehydrated. If you don’t moisturise sufficiently after every bath it’s only a matter of time before dry skin will start to rear its ugly head. Staying in the bath for a long period of time can strip the skin of its essential oils- which is the main culprit in causing dry skin.

Fear not though, as there is no reason why you need to give up on your much loved soak in the bath, provided you slap on the moisturiser as soon as you’ve dried yourself off.

Using a rich moisturiser, such as Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream, will help to restore moisture and keep skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day.

After applying this fantastic moisturiser, your skin will feel as soft as silk- so you can lie back and enjoy a long relaxing bath after a hectic day in the office.

Dealing with break outs

People of all ages can suffer from break outs, and although there are daily preventative measures that we can take, the inevitable does sometimes happen!

If you do suffer from a breakout, there’s no need to panic or reach for the nearest paper bag, as there are plenty of ways to deal with them quickly and effectively.

Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment is a great 2 in 1 solution which treats and conceals at the same time. The fantastic treatment helps to combat bacteria- giving skin a fighting chance of a clear outlook. However, so that the treatment (and any other makeup) doesn’t look dry and flaky, it’s important that you use a moisturiser beforehand.

Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel is another essential weapon in the fight against breakouts, which can be applied to the affected or entire area, and works its magic whilst you sleep.

Although it may be tempting, it’s important that you try not to touch any spots or blemishes- as this could make the problem much worse.

Break outs are one of life’s little annoyances, but by dealing with any problem swiftly, you can ensure that they vanish almost as quickly as they appeared!

Pampering your skin ready for a big night out

When we have a big night out or special occasion planned, we all want to look our absolute best. This is why many of us start our beauty preparations well in advance, to make sure we’re looking- and feeling- a million dollars when the night comes.

One of the first areas that many people target is the skin. This is often because, if we’re suffering from spots or blemishes- they need a little time to clear up. Treating the skin before a special occasion isn’t just for those with blemishes though- it can make even the most flawless skin look even more amazing.

In addition to your regular skincare regime, a good place to start with pampering your pores is using a face masque. There are many different types of masques on the market today, which is fantastic, as it means that you can find one to suit your needs perfectly.

However, if you’re looking to moisturise and brighten up your skin before a big occasion, Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Masque is the perfect product. This masque intensely hydrates skin- restoring its smoothness and suppleness, whilst also helping to reduce the visibility of any pesky fine lines and dry spots.

Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Masque is a great way to get your pampering off to a luxurious start.
