Don’t suffer with sensitive skin

Skin can generally be categorised into one of many different types- which include- ‘normal’, oily, sensitive and dry. Each type has its own specific needs, and this needs to be kept in mind when choosing skin care products. Using the right type of products for the skin is essential in order to keep it in the best condition possible.

However, those with sensitive skin often find it more difficult to find suitable products, and there is often a certain element of trial and error. Using trial and error as a way to gauge whether or not a product is suitable for you can be risky though, and could result in a reaction or rash.

If you do have sensitive skin though, there really is no need to suffer as there are now some great products on the market that have gone through rigorous testing- so you don’t have to take any chances.

Individuals with sensitive skin should try and make sure that all- and not just some- of their beauty products are specifically designed for this skin type.

Dermalogica have a fantastic range of products that are perfect for sensitive skin– including cleansers, toners, moisturisers- that will soothe and protect skin throughout the day.

Achieving the perfect makeup base

There’s little point in starting to apply your make-up if you haven’t first prepared the perfect base. Many women apply their make-up for the day and then wonder why it’s started to disappear by lunchtime, and the main reason for this is an inadequate base. You could buy the most expensive make-up products in the world, but there is very little chance that it will stay put if you apply it to skin that hasn’t been properly primed.

It goes without saying that cleansing, toning and moisturising are absolutely imperative, and puts you well on the right track for achieving a suitable base. However, using the wrong type of moisturiser could cause you problems- particularly if it is very rich.

In order to give your make-up a fighting chance, you need to apply a light moisturiser, such as Dermalogica Active Moist. This fantastic lotion is ideal for everyday use, and is suitable for both normal and oily skin types. Dermalogica Active Moist is very lightweight and absorbs speedily- which means that skin is left moisturised, shine is kept at bay and make-up is left looking fresh throughout the day.

There you have it- the perfect base for your favourite Dermalogica foundation!

Soothe your stresses away

With the effects of the recession still having an effect on many businesses, it’s no surprise that many people are working long and tiring hours. Whilst working additional hours is essential for many people, it can often mean that relaxation and early nights are nothing but a distant memory.

However, allowing yourself to relax and forget about the stresses of work and life is essential- otherwise you could find that you find yourself getting more and more stressed as time goes on.

There are many ways of relaxing yourself after a hard day or week at work- from crashing out in front of the TV to enjoying a glass of your favourite wine. Another fantastic way of soothing yourself is taking a long, warm bath.

Dermalogica Stress Relief Treatment Oil is the perfect addition to a soothing bath, and can help you to completely unwind. Containing sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage, this oil not only soothes, it also intensely conditions skin- leaving it silky smooth.

Simply add a few drops of the oil to your bath or massage into the skin, and allow yourself to completely let go…

Wave goodbye to dry skin

Not also can dry skin on the body be extremely irritating, it can also feel extremely painful. During the cold winter months, skin is wrapped up in thick clothing, and smothered with harsh central heating, both of which can lead to skin becoming incredibly dry.

The old saying ‘out of sight, out of mind’ should most certainly not be followed when it comes to looking after your skin, and although you do need to moisturise your face intensively, you can’t afford to neglect your body.

It’s never too late to give your skin a little TLC, and you’ll be glad that you did, as the improvements that you will see, and feel, will be amazing.

When clothing rubs against dry skin, the irritation can feel unbearable, and not only can itching make the problem worse, it’s also not a very good look!

The best way of getting your skin back to it soft and silky best is to get your hands on an effective intensive body moisturiser. Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream is just this, and also has anti-inflammatory properties which help to soothe raw skin.

The best time to apply the cream is straight after a bath or shower, as this is when your skin loses a lot of moisture. Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream locks in moisture and you will feel the results almost instantly.

So ditch that itching and make dry skin a thing of the distant past.

Protect your peepers

One of the first places where fine lines start to appear is around the eye area. The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate, and special attention needs to be paid to it in order to halt premature signs of ageing.

It doesn’t take a lot for small wrinkles to start appearing- sun exposure, tiredness and stress are some of the main culprits that can leave the skin looking less than its best. This is why it’s so important that you invest in a product that is specially designed for the area.

Using your normal daily moisturiser on the area is not a good idea, as the skin on the face and around the eyes have different needs.

It’s never too early to start your fight against the fine lines, and as they say- prevention is better than cure. Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair is a fantastic eye cream which hydrates the skin whilst helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

The cream is gentle enough to use as part of your daily skincare regime yet effective enough to really make a difference. Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair contains a range of ingredients which are known for their ability to moisturise, repair and protect- including cucumber, arnica, butcherbroom, Vitamins A, C and E, grape seed and wild yam extracts and Pro-Vitamin B5.

Let Dermalogica work its magic and open your eyes to revitalised skin.
