Moisturising is key in keeping stretch marks at bay

Stretch marks are one of life’s little annoyances, and can affect both men and women. Stretch marks are essentially scars, so once they appear it is incredibly difficult to get rid of them.

Stretch marks most commonly appear due to quick weight gain, pregnancy and speedy muscle gain- basically when skin is caused to stretch quickly.

As the saying goes- prevention is definitely better than cure, and one of the best ways of helping to prevent the appearance of stretch marks is by making sure that you keep your skin properly moisturised.

After a bath or shower on a chilly day, it’s all to tempting to dry yourself off and wrap up warm as quickly as possible- skipping moisturising in the process. However, hot water can cause skin to lose a lot of moisture- which makes rehydrating your skin after washing even more important.

Invest in an intense body moisturiser, such as Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream. This moisturiser is a fab all-rounder which absorbs quickly- so you don’t have to stand around shivering in the bathroom whilst you wait for it to dry!

Demolish dry skin

Dry skin is certainly no laughing matter, and those who suffer from it can find that dealing with it and keeping it under control is a difficult task.

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to dry skin- including stress, diet and environment- as well as underlying skin conditions.

Persistent dry skin on the face can have lasting effects, and the appearance of fine lines can be very ageing. This is why dry skin needs to be dealt with quickly and effectively.

Keep your eye makeup looking beautiful

Most women love wearing eye makeup, as it can really transform your look and help to really bring out the eyes. Whether it’s a touch of sheer shimmer for the office, or dramatic dark smoky eyes for an evening out, the eye makeup that you choose can also really help to enhance an outfit.

Although you may have mastered the art of applying your makeup, it’s sometimes difficult to make it stay in place- especially if you are in a particularly humid environment.

When using eyeshadow, many women also complain of the ‘creased’ looked that can develop after only a short amount of wear. However, you’ll be pleased to know that there are some very simple ways of ensuring that your eye makeup stays in place for longer and stays looking stunning.

We all know the importance of keeping the skin hydrated and moisturised- and this is particularly important for the eye area. As it is so delicate, without proper hydration, the skin around the eyes will start to look and feel dry very quickly, and those dreaded fine lines may start to appear with a vengeance!

Apply a product such as Dermalogica Total Eye Care before putting on your makeup. This fantastic formula helps to moisturise and smooth skin- which will help to stop eye makeup from creasing and looking dry.

When taking your makeup off, make sure that you don’t scrub the area, and use a gentle but effective product such as Dermalogica Soothing Eye Makeup Remover.

Give your peepers a little pick me up and flutter those eyelashes with confidence!

Simple steps for spectacular skin

There’s never any time like the present to start really looking after your skin, and all it takes is a small amount of time and a small amount of effort.

The skin on your face is constantly exposed to damaging factors such as the sun’s rays, harsh weather conditions and general pollutants on a daily basis. This is why it’s imperative that you take steps to protect and nourish it as best as you can.

Your skin is often a reflection of what is happening on the inside of your body, so make sure that you drink plenty of water throughout the day and eat as healthily as possible. A diet that largely consists of junk food and is low in nutrients is certainly not the best way of ensuring that your complexion is clear.

No matter how tired you are, it’s important to cleanse your skin before bed so that it has the chance to breathe. Leaving makeup on and not cleansing skin before sleeping is a fast route to spots and blemishes.
After cleansing your skin at night, make sure that you get at least 8 hours sleep (although some people need slightly more or less). This will help to prevent bags and dark circles.

Dermalogica have a fantastic range of products for all skin types which can work wonders in improving the look and feel of skin.

Just by following these small steps, your skin will gain a new lease of life.
