I’ve never before found a toner that feels so nice and refreshing on the skin and that actually moisturises the skin at the same time. Its even great over makeup for a quick freshen up in the day when your skin feels dry.

Chestnuts and their Beauty Benefits

There are many different breeds of chestnuts which grow natively (although perhaps the most famous of them all, the Horse Chestnut, isn’t actually a true chestnut), here in the UK and they all have beauty benefits which can be harnessed. The clever folk at Dermalogica have used various chestnut types, including horse chestnuts, in a number of their products to give you the best of what this little nut has to offer. Here’s a pick of the most popular ones:

Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque

This clever masque acts in a number of ways, from absorbing excess oil to actively helping to reduce over production of sebum in the future. It’s suitable for acneic and breakout-prone skin. It contains salicylic acid, as well as many other natural ingredients and the chestnut works to reduce inflammation and redness, keeping sebum production to a minimum.

Dermalogica Post Shave Balm

Shaving is one of the main irritants to men’s skin and requires the use of excellent products to reduce the negative impact. A post shave balm should cool and calm the skin, and this one from Dermalogica harnesses the power of horse chestnut seed extract, which has natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF30

Sunscreen during the warmer months is an absolute must, but if you have oily skin then regular SPFs can play absolute havoc with your face. This oil-free formulation from Dermalogica not only lacks the usual oily texture of most SPFs, it also contains ingredients (including chestnut) which help to actively reduce the skins ability to produce sebum.

Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion

If you suffer with oily skin, you’ll know that keeping the shine at bay can be an all-day battle and that you need some seriously powerful products in your arsenal. This lotion from Dermalogica is designed to control your skins ability to produce sebum and contains enantia chlorantha bark extract to help regulate sebum to reduce oily surface shine, as well as horse chestnut, liquorice, panthenol and caffeine to regulate sebum production and soothe inflammation.

Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier

One of the main functions of chestnut within many of these products is to help with the regulation of sebum production (which, in layman’s terms, means it helps to stop your face from looking too greasy). It acts in this mattifying lotion alongside other bioregulators, such as niacinamide, yeast extract, licorice, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) and caffeine to reduce oil and shine.

Young skin at Pure Beauty

Many of our customers ask us when they should start a healthy skin care routine for their children. Sebum production starts at around the age of ten and this is when signs of change can be seen. Dry or oily complexions tend to intensify, bumps, clogged pores and spots can appear and embarrassment can be caused.

Bacteria, dirt and make-up can build up on the skin so starting an easy to use programme before trouble strikes and issues occur, can be a great idea and set positive patterns for the future.

The Dermalogica Clear Start programme is a range of gentle but effective products that care for teenage skin and deliver outstanding results.

First things first and the Dermalogica Foaming Wash. This is a deep cleansing, skin purifying cleanser, that is perfect for teenager skin that is breakout prone. Orange Peel and Tea Tree oils energise and the refresh skin and they also smell great. Salicylic Acid breaks up dead skin cells and clears that annoying trapped oil to help wipe out existing and future breakouts. Fresh skin, big smiles!

Next comes the refreshing and purifying Dermalogica All Over Toner. This cool, spritzing toner helps control the excess oil many teenagers battle with and also helps eliminate breakouts on the face and body. Twelve gentle botanicals are used in this product to refresh, energise and revive delicate, teenage skin.

Your teen might think a moisturiser is the last thing they need, but it is a vital part of caring for skin at any age. The amazing Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser SPF15 is an oil absorbing moisturiser with SPF and a must have for teenagers with acne. Willow Bark provides a natural source of Salicylic Acid and African Whitewood Bark Extract is an anti-inflammatory with healthy antioxidant and sebum-regulating properties. Silicones soothe the skin and stops if from drying out, which is kind of key to this programme. White Birch Extract has both antiseptic and soothing
properties to help the skin healing and added Burdock Root Extract hydrate and calm the skin.

We all know that spots can strike at anytime and this is where the Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix comes into play. This is a potent topical spot treatment that can be put into a school or gym bag and used at anytime. The strong but gentle formula is designed to kill the bacteria that cause breakouts directly in the pore, and it really does work. For best results, you simply apply a small amount of spot treatment to the breakout, with finger or cotton swab, and allow it to dry and sink in. It can be applied every 6 to 8 hours as needed and we also suggest using at the first sign of a break out to stop the bacteria in the follicle advancing and to help clear and soothe the skin.

Whilst all of our prices are competitive, we understand that buying the whole set can be a gamble, so why not start with the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit? This set contains five key products to get your teen started and once their skin is happy and under control, we think you’ll be back for more.

If you have any questions about the Clear Start range, or any of our products, get in touch today and we will be happy to help.

5 New Years’ Resolutions You Should be Making for Your Skin

Skin resolutions

With 2017 just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to take a look at your skin and work out if there’s anything you could be doing better. Today, we take a look at 5 New Years’ resolutions that you should be making to ensure your skin looks its best in the new year, and for many more years to come.

Keep it Clean

The first place to start with having better skin is by making sure it’s spotlessly clean, which means cleansing your face EVERY DAY, morning and night. Skin produces sebum overnight, so washing it first thing is a must. Cleaning it in the evening is also a good idea as it will rid your skin of the pollutants you’ve encountered throughout the day. Use Decleor Essential Cleansing Milk, which is suitable for all skin types.

Get More Sleep

Sleep is the time during which your body has the change to repair and regenerate and it’s essential to your wellbeing that you get enough. If you want your skin to look its’ best then you should make sure you squeeze as many hours of sleep in as you can manage – it will help prevent spots, dry skin and dark circles under your eyes.

Choose the Right Moisturise

It’s really tempting to head to the toiletries aisle in the supermarket and grab any old moisturiser, but this could end up being a fools errand if it’s not the right one for your skin. Work out if you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin or ageing skin before buying something a lot more specific to your needs.

Drink More Water

Dehydration can have many knock-on effects, especially with your skin. As well as causing your skin to be dry, it can also make your skin look dull, increase dark spots and make wrinkles and fine lines look exponentially worse. Staying hydrated will help to keep these things at bay.

Treat it Nicely

Even if you have a strict skin routine to which you stick, treating your skin to little extras every now and again will help to keep it nourished. Oily skin can benefit hugely from using Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque while teenage skin can be hugely improved by using Dermalogica Cooling Masque.
