The Best Products for Collagen Synthesis

The Best Products for Collagen Synthesis

Royalty-free image

Most of us have heard of collagen, and although for some it’s still synonymous with the huge lip implants of the early 90’s, collagen is actually a key component of the skin. As we get older, our body isn’t able to produce as much collagen, which is why the skin starts to sag, losing its plumped up appearance. The good thing is, it’s possible to stimulate the body’s ability to produce collagen, and we stock several products which can help. Here are five of the best:

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream

Probably the most powerful product we offer in the fight against collagen depletion, Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Marine Cream contains a powerful combination of ingredients which improves firmness and hydration in just 15 days. It’s clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and increases cell renewal, firmness and elasticity through increased collagen support.

Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex

The eyes are often one of the first places from which collagen depletes, leaving the eyes looking saggy and prematurely aged. Dermalogica’s Age Reversal Eye Complex contains niacinamide which stimulates collagen synthesis, targeting wrinkles, crow’s feet, dark circles and hyperpigmentation. The eye area will be dramatically hydrated and transformed.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; skincare doesn’t stop at your face! This balm from Elemis is designed to target the neck and décolletage, allowing you to increase collagen production and reduce the appearance of sagging in these areas. It contains padina pavonica to help hydrate, nourish and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as chlorella vulgaris which will help visibly improve the appearance of skin elasticity and smoothness.

Decleor Youth Lotion

This toning lotion from Decleor is designed to add deep hydration to ageing skin while offering protection to the collagen and elastin fibres of the skin from free radical damage. It’s rich in amino and fatty acids to aid skin regeneration, while hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks

These gel-based masks are designed especially for the eye area and give the skin a rich wash of hydration to combat dryness, fine lines, dark circles and skin sagging. The individual gel masks contain potent plankton extracts as well as hyaluronic acid which leaves the delicate eye area looking visibly smoother and feeling intensely moisturised.

Introducing the Jan Marini Bioglycolic Range!

We’re always excited when we add new products ranges to our shelves, and we’ve recently added a whole new brand – Jan Marini! We’ve got so much to tell you about all of the different, wonderful products on offer, but for today we thought we’d focus on just one range from the brand, the Bioglycolic range, which is designed to work together to dramatically improve the appearance of ageing skin.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Cream

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear CreamThis face cream from the range contains a combination of acids to dramatically retexturise the surface of the skin and leave your face looking smooth and wrinkle-free. Glycolic, salicylic and azelaic acid reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. It’s very potent, so shouldn’t be used if pregnant or on Ro-Accutane, and you should always use a sunscreen if you’re exposed after using this cream.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion

This is basically the lotion form of the Bioclear cream, containing the same combination of Glycolic, salicylic and azelaic acids. It’s a lighter formulation for people who don’t like heavy creams and will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. It gives the skin renewed luminosity and should be used with the same caution as the cream.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser

A good skin routine starts with your cleanser and this soap-free formulation from Jan Marini encourages a soft, smoother and more refined skin texture. It contains glycolic acid as a follicular cleansing aid and resurfacing agent and will enhance the benefits of other glycolic acid products.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Hand and Body Lotion

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Hand and Body Lotion

Anti-ageing skincare shouldn’t stop at your face, which is why Jan Marini developed this hand and body lotion, which contains glycolic acid, aminophylline and shea butter to hydrate and visibly smooth the skin. It has antioxidant ingredients which help to repair the skins tissues and is brilliant for use on skin conditions like keratosis pilaris where an excess of keratin is produced, making the skin look lumpy.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel

Dealing with oily, ageing skin can be really tricky as most anti-ageing products are too rich, but this cleansing gel clears the skin of excess sebum while providing extra benefits for oily/problem-prone skin. Glycolic acid targets oily skin, while helping with the appearance of acne lesions. Skin appears smoother and more refined with regular use.

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub

For an all-over polished look to your skin, this scrub is a great choice. It contains concentrated glycolic acid with exfoliating particles and key botanical extracts for noticeably smoother glowing skin that is silky smooth to the touch. It will immediately reduce rough calloused skin such as backs of arms and legs and will provide progressive improvement over time.

Boost your skin with the goodness of oranges

Elemis Revitalise-Me Shower Gel

We all know fresh fruit is good for our skin and hair, but we often forget that the humble orange is phenomenal and full of ingredients that will help to boost your complexion!

The natural oils in oranges help moisturise skin so it looks softer and healthier and thanks to free radical fighting antioxidents, wrinkles and premature ageing can be slowed down.

At Pure-Beauty we sell a range of products that contain this natural powerhouse and today we are looking at just a few to get you started.

The Dermalogica Precleanse Balm is a balm-to-oil cleanser that gently removes excess oil, sunscreen, make-up and pollutants from all skin types. Bitter Orange and Mandarin Orange are just two of the natural oils that have been blended to create a cleanser that cares for the skin and one that smells as amazing as a spa treatment room. Rich in fatty acids and apricot oil, this balm has lightweight feel, melts into any skin types and leaves it feeling soothed and hydrated.

If you want to feed your face with the good stuff, then you need the Decleor Hydra Floral White Petal Skin Perfecting Hydrating Sleeping Mask. This special light gel mask is enriched with Sweet Orange and Citrus Aurantium Dulcis and after wearing it as you sleep you will wake up with skin that is recharged, bright and glowing.

For all day skin radiance, why not try the Decleor Intense Glow Awakening Cream? This gorgeous lightweight, deeply moisturising day cream is made from a number of powerful active ingredients that make tired skin come alive. Orange Flavonoids protects skin from harmful free radicals, Samphire Extract improves tone and Tamarindus Extract smooths fine lines so skin looks fabulous once again.

With summer of the way, if you want silky soft skin, the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream is a good place to start. Green Tea, Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile oils soothe and soften the skin, while essential oils of Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary hydrate it and lock in moisture. The non-greasy emulsion is easily absorbed by the skin and results can be seen from the very first application.

Even if you only have ten minutes to yourself, the Elemis Revitalise-Me Shower Gel will awaken your body and senses. Simply squeeze a little gel into wet palms, massage into your skin and even when you have rinsed away, the invigorating snell of Sweet Orange and Lime oils will revitalise you and Mango will condition your skin.

Even our younger customers can benefit from the power of oranges, and the Dermalogica All Over Toner is one of our favourites in this acne beating range. This easy to use purifying mist helps control excess oil and eliminate breakouts. Salicylic Acid exfoliates and reduces redness and inflammation while Saw Palmetto, Sesame Seed and Moroccan Argan Kernel Extracts normalises sebum secretion. It’s the Orange Peel and Lavender that soothe and refresh the skin with natural Tea Tree, killing bacteria.

If you have any questions, or would like to try samples, get in touch and let us find an orange infused product that will work for you.

Why You Should Be Opting for Products Containing Glycerin

Why You Should Be Opting for Products Containing Glycerin

Royalty-free image

Most people have heard of glycerin, as it’s got so many different uses, but did you know that it’s also really good for your skin? Glycerin is what’s known as an ‘humectant’, which means that it attracts water, making it an ideal ingredient in moisturiser. It’s also an emollient, says Dr. Alexandrides, a Harley Street surgeon.

He says “This means that it is able to form a protective layer over where it is applied and thus retains the moisture that has been drawn into the skin, resulting in softer, smoother skin. This prevention of moisture loss will also strengthen the skin’s barrier function, keeping toxins and bacteria from getting into the skin, meaning that the chances of inflammatory problems such as Eczema and Psoriasis are reduced.”

Here are some of Dermalogica’s best glycerine-containing products:

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Lips are one of the most common places for the signs of ageing to show because it’s an area of high movement. Glycerin is used alongside apple fruit extract, shea butter and sesame seed extract in this lip treatment to smooth the appearance of feather lines, while reconstituting the thin epidermal barrier and improving lip hydration. It works overnight to drastically reduce the signs of ageing and restores skin volume on and around the lips.

Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water-Gel

This water-based gel from Dermalogica is a highly moisturising treatment for very dry skin which harnesses the softening and hydrating power of glycerine, as well as hyaluronic acid and apple fruit extract. It locks in moisture and defends skin against dryness, and can be used twice daily for continuous hydration.

Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20

Using make-up when you have severely dehydrated skin can often be a problem as many formulations just won’t sit nicely on your complexion. This tint from Dermalogica is a wash of colour which contains humectants like glycerin, serine, lactic acid, urea, allantoin and sorbitol to lock moisture into your skin, giving you a product which is part foundation and part moisturiser.

Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer

This multi-tasking primer is good for all skin types, even dry or sensitive skin and transforms skin into an even surface with a dramatic blurring effect. It contains wu-zhu-yu fruit extract and mushroom extract, as well as glycerin and sodium PCA which is naturally found in the skin help bind water into tissue, maintaining proper hydration levels that help minimise fine lines from dehydration.
