Everything You Need to Know About the New Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

Dermalogica Daily SuperfoliantWe have to admit, we were intrigued when we first saw the new Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant as it’s the only product we sell which comes in powder form. But the more we read about it, the more we knew we’d love it and that’s even truer now we’ve tried it! Here’s a breakdown of all of the info you need to know about the Daily Superfoliant:

What is it?

The Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant is an exfoliating powder which, when mixed with water, forms a thick paste containing powerful enzymes, skin-surfacing alpha hydroxy acids and anti-pollution technology. It’s made from activated binchotan charcoal, niacinamide, red algae and tara fruit extract

What does it do?

This is a super clever product with many actions. It provides both physical and chemical exfoliation, which means that as well as your scrubbing action removing dead skin cells, the product itself contains a chemical which helps to remove them too. It also provides triple-action absorption which allows you to successfully remove the grime of the day and ensure that your face is the cleanest it’s ever been. The best part is that it’s mild enough to use on a daily basis without causing hypersensitivity. It also prevents further pollutants from sticking to your skin and reinforces your skin’s protective layer.

Who is it for?

As well as people with prematurely ageing skin, this formulation is great for people who live or work in cities or busy town environments, or even those who spend a lot of time on the road. It’s so effective at getting rid of external pollutants that it’s the perfect product for those who feel the need to give their face a good scrub when they get home from a hard day at work. It’s recommended for those with prematurely ageing skin because it actually works on a cellular level to improve the skin’s own defences.

How do I use it?

After using your regular cleanser, take a teaspoon of the powder and mix it with a little water in your hands until it forms a rich paste. Apply all over the face, focusing on areas which appear more oily than others, but avoiding your delicate eye area. Massage in circular motions for around a minute before rinsing with plenty of warm water.

How much does it cost?

It costs £49.50 for a 57g tub which should last for ages, even if you use it daily.

Pure Beauty has something for all the family

Got a sister with hard to handle hair? No problem, the Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo is just right for her. This is a nourishing, sulfate-free, daily shampoo with Aragon oil added to help protect hair as well as increasing softness, shine and manageability. Coconut oil strengthens the cuticles and a blend of grapefruit, lavender and geranium oils create the most wonderful smell. This can be doubled up by also using the Dermalogica Daily Conditioning Rinse.

Your mum might have used the same moisturiser all her life, but we think she might just be impressed by Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery . As well as offering the ultimate in hydration, this light but rich cream also defends against skin ageing. As well as soothing the skin, the moisturiser is packed with Evening Primrose Oil, which reinforces the natural barrier lipid layer and helps retain hydration levels and added oatmeal and Feverfew Extract calms irritations which means that skin is left softer and smooth than is has been in years.

5 Key Places You Should Be Exfoliating

5 Key Places You Should Be ExfoliatingThis time of year often inspires us to keep everything under wraps, because anything else is just too cold, but this usually means that our skin is in poor condition by the time spring rolls around. Sticking to a regular regime of exfoliation even during the colder months will help you to maintain healthy looking and feeling skin, and we’ve identified 5 key areas to concentrate on.

Heels

When your feet are in and out of thick socks and heavy boots, it’s really easy to neglect them but when spring comes around there’s a good chance you’ll have feet like the Gruffalo if you ignore them for that long! Soaking in a bath and using a pumice stone or metal foot file is the easiest way to get rid of a build-up of dry skin, and using Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream regularly will help to keep skin soft and supple.

Arms

Your upper arms can often feel very dry and may even have little rough bumps on the surface, a common condition called keratosis pilaris, which affects a lot of women. Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub is the best product for smoothing your arms, followed by some of the body cream we mentioned above.

Legs

Let’s face it; when it’s trouser or tights weather very few of us even bother to shave our legs, let alone exfoliate and moisturise! Putting in the effort to keep your legs presentable when they’re being covered up might seem futile, but it can make you feel great, even if no one else gets to see them!

Bottom

We all seem to spend a little more time sitting on our bottoms when it’s cold outside, which can be a great way of cultivating pimples in the area. Tiny hairs on the buttocks become ingrown and turn into spots, and a spotty bum is never a good look! Use Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts as a deeply cleansing scrub in the area to really resurface the cheeks that no-one sees!

Lips

Most women we know seem to spend the entirety of winter with permanently chapped lips. Using the Dermalogica Exfoliating Face Brush over your whole face, but concentrating on your lips, will help to slough away dead skin. Follow this with regular applications of Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment which will not only re-hydrate your lips but also prevent them from further chapping.

Make Sunday night spa night with Pure Beauty

Dermalogica Hydro Active Mineral Salts

Rather than watching TV, catching up on emails or doing the ironing, why not make Sunday night a spa night in 2017?

End the weekend with a little bit of pampering so that you go to bed feeling relaxed and ready for the week ahead?

Run a bath, put some candles on, warm your fluffiest towels, turn off the phone and enjoy some time just for you.

At Pure-Beauty we sell a range of products from Dermalogica that are salon quality and waiting to be tried by you.

If you are going to go for a soak, we suggest adding Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts to the water. As you lie back and relax, mineral-rich sea salts, natural kelp and essential oils gently exfoliate the skin, leaving it super-smooth. Warming, fragrant spices of Coriander, Cinnamon and Ginger have been added into the mix to relax the body and uplift the senses making this the perfect option for a total stress-reducing muscle soak.

The Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash is suitable for all skin types and can be used in the bath or shower. This rich, skin-conditioning botanical cleanser can be used on the entire body and thanks to essential oils and natural extracts it doesn’t over-dry the skin. Squeeze a little into your hands, lather into the skin and let Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage moisturise your skin, de-stress your mind and sooth your senses.

If you are detoxing this January, you might also want to give your skin a little extra attention. The Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub allows you to buff away dull, dead cells that cause irritation and embarrassment so your skin can breathe again. This gentle, but totally effective product, is packed with Fig, Date and Olive seed powders as well as Rice Bran and Papaya enzymes which together remove impurities and stimulate cell renewal. Who know you do all of this at home?

We forgot to say that the Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts can also be used as an effective body scrub. Mix some of the salts with two pumps of Dermalogica Stress Relief Treatment Oil and gently massage over your body for outstanding results.

With your skin clean and soft, locking in the moisture is essential and this is where the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream comes in. Again, suitable for all skin types, this gorgeous, rich lotion easily absorbs into the skin so that it is softer than ever. This is great for the winter months because it is packed with Hydroxy acids that smooth and relieve dryness as well as essential oils of Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary which are natural hydrators that leave the skin smelling amazing.

If your skin needs a little extra love, we suggesting trying the Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream which is perfect for really dry skin. This unique formula contains Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Evening Primrose Oil, which together, quench and recondition the skin whilst added Panthenol repairs sad cells. For the best results, apply the cream after bathing using large, sweeping movements and concentrate on dry area such as elbows, feet and knees.

With your mind and body relaxed, head to bed and drift into a deep sleep.

How to Handle Winter Hair

January is here and it’s set to be one of the coldest we’ve had for many years, which means that all of the usual issues that cold weather causes for our beauty regime will be here to stay for a while yet. One of the most annoying parts of winter is what it does to our hair, so we thought we’d take a look at a few common winter hair problems and give you some solutions for them.

Frizz

Frizz is at its worst when you go from cold environments to hot and vice versa so basically just leaving the house on a cold day can cause you to end up with a full mane of frizz. This will be worse if you use a lot of heat to style your hair as lots of brushing, drying and straightening will increase the amount of static in your hair. Using Dermalogica Daily Conditioning Rinse will smooth out your hair’s follicles and keep the frizz at bay for longer.

Hat Hair

If you like to wear a hat or hood during the winter, there’s a good chance that you’ll have fallen victim to hat-hair on more than one occasion which isn’t good when you wear a hat in the morning and have to spend the rest of the day looking peculiar. Opting for a hat which is looser fitting is one way to minimise the effects, as is putting your hair into a French twist beneath your hat as it will minimise the kinks and folds which get pressed down by your hat.

How to Handle Winter HairDry Scalp

A dry scalp can be a real pain as not only will you end up with flakes in your hair, you’ll probably end up scratching your head all day, leaving your colleagues wondering if you need a trip to the nit nurse! Opt for a gentle, daily use shampoo like Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo which is good for all skin types and won’t dry your scalp out further.

Rainy Days

Rain is usually the bane of the straightener-using woman as it usually means that your carefully styled hair looks crazy in minutes. Opt for using a blow dryer and flat brush to give yourself a really thorough blow dry instead of using flat irons as this will keep your hair smoother for longer, and even if your hair does succumb to the dampness, it should only kink a little, leaving you still looking boardroom-ready.

Split Ends

Split ends are super common during the colder months and while we’d love to tell you that there’s a magic solution for getting rid of them, basically the only way is to cut them off. Treat yourself to a haircut every six to eight weeks to keep your split ends at bay and your hair will look sleeker and more healthy all year round.
