Maintain a Winter Glow with Dermalogica and Decleor

Maintain a Winter Glow with Dermalogica and DecleorIt only seems like yesterday that we were frolicking around during one of the best summers for decades, feeling all tanned and glowing. Now, we’re well into winter and most of us have well and truly lost that glow. But, fear not – even if a tropical holiday is out of your budget, Dermalogica and Decleor have some products to help you to regain your glow and feel a little more dynamic this winter.

Decleor Gradual Glow Hydrating Body Milk

Unless you’re legitimately olive or dark skinned, walking around with a Cuprinol-coloured tan at this time of year is never going to look natural, however many of us feel like we lack that “glow” without any level of tan. That’s why this gradual tanner from Decleor is so good; the colour builds over time and you can add more if you want to build colour, allowing you to avoid that instant Oompa-Loompa look that so many fake tans cause.

Decleor Brightening Cleansing Foam

Dull skin is super common during the winter months which is why we recommend switching your cleanser to this brightening foam, at least during the colder periods. It restores radiance to otherwise dreary skin and gives your face a boost of “White Focus” plant complex which regulates the skin’s pigmentation process.

Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint SPF30

If you’re wrapped up in layers from head-to-toe then it might be that you simply can’t be bothered with an all over tan. However, using Dermalogica Ultra Sensitive Tint will not only give your skin a boost of mineral-based colour, but also offer SPF30 protection from the sun’s harmful rays, which can still be an issue even during the colder winter months.

Decleor Extreme Brightening Essence

Such is the power of this brightening formula from Decleor that it comes in three tiny bottles which contains just a little over two tablespoons of liquid. However, these little bottles pack a massive punch and are used over just thirty days to offer a massive boost to the skin’s brightness. Not only will this reduce the appearance of already-existing pigmented spots, it will prevent more from appearing, which is a real boon.

Decleor Face Tan Activator Serum

If you are lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climes this winter and want to make the most of the sun while you’re there, we recommend this tan activating serum from Decleor. It prepares your skin for sun exposure and boosts the skin’s ability to tan and will ultimately prolong the life of your colour. It’s recommended for use before you apply your SPF and will have the added bonus of making your face feel super smooth after a few days’ usage.

Get perfect party skin with Pure Beauty

At Pure Beauty we pride ourselves on selling great products and giving clients first class advice. As well as our Midlands based salon, we also sell Decleor and Dermalogica products online with free delivery and great offers.

Work parties, Christmas drinks and events galore are fun but we also know the light nights, drinks and rich food can play havoc with your skin.

To help, we have chosen a few of our favourite party products that we think you, and your skin, will love too.

If you want your shoulders and back to glow in that new dress, you really need the Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash in your life. This soap-free, acid-balanced beauty must-have, leaves your skin clean and soft but doesn’t strip it of vital natural  moisture. It smells great because it is enriched with essential oils, so it also helps you de-stress as you shower and get ready.

With your skin clean, you also want it to be extra soft. For this you need the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream. This is more than a just body cream thanks to a mix of hydroxy acids and essential plant extracts that come together to smooth and condition the skin. Sugar Cane and Apple have been combined with Lactic Acid to restore dull skin. The power of anti-inflammatory Green Tea, Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile oils, soothe and soften. Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary oils all help hydrate the skin and lock in moisture. The result? Your best festive skin ever.

Whilst the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream sinks into your limbs, you will have time to give your complexion the TLC it needs. Start by using the Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser. Water-soluble Kaolin and Green clays have been combined with Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon extracts to gently remove excess oils from the skin and refine texture. Calming Cucumber and healing Sage soothe irritation and refreshing Menthol revitalises tired, partied out skin.

For added hydration, that will last all night long, spray on the Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist. This acts as a brilliant antioxidant shield and comes complete with flash-firming properties that improve skin texture whilst intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin.

To add a further boost to your party skin, we would suggest using the gorgeous Dermalogica MultiVitamin Power Serum. A silky smooth cocktail of vitamins and peptides are mixed with a sunflower butter base for a smooth, wearable feel. This is the perfect pick me up for drier or prematurely ageing skin and will make your skin feel tip top.

Last step, and this is an important one. Moisturiser. Out best-seller, and with good reason, is the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream. This is light, but effective cream moisturises, soothes and helps prevent the appearance of the dehydration lines that can make you feel self conscious. Apply to the face using, soft upward strokes and let the goodness of Mallow, Cucumber and Arnica soothe and hydrate your skin before applying your make up and getting dressed.

If you have any questions or would like samples, get in touch today and we would love to help.

Oh, an don’t forget, if you spend over £65 on one order of Dermalogica, you will get a free skin detox set that will be perfect for January!

Winter kindness from Dermalogica

Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution

For many of us, the cold crisp days of winter mean more than extra mugs of hot chocolate and a rosy glow.

The down-turn in temperature can cause dryness to the face, feet and hands. Complexions can become dehydrated whilst flaking, cracking and eczema can cause pain and embarrassment.

At Pure-Beauty we stock a range of products that can help keep the elements at bay so your skin feels, and looks, great whatever the weather throws at you.

First of all it’s is really important to keep the skin clean and this means cleansing is key.  The Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution is a rich, creamy cleanser that deeply nourishes dry skin as well as clearing away impurities. This product replenishes dry skin whilst maintaining moisture levels. Vitamin and plant extracts nourish the skin leaving it feeling better than ever. Suitable for drier and prematurely ageing complexions, this little beauty will keep your skin feeling tip-top all winter long.

Just because it is winter, it doesn’t mean you can skip sun protection. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is the perfect remedy for this. This cream has so many positive benefits, we don’t quite know where to start! Firstly it enhances the skin’s natural ability to fight damaging free radicals as well as preventing the signs of ageing. It regulates the formation of collagen, offers long lasting hydration and reinforces the natural moisture barrier of the skin. It can be used as an all year round daily moisturiser and you’ll love how it effortlessly blends into your face and neck leaving them feeling silky smooth however rough the weather is.

Sometimes you need an extra boost in the winter months and this is where the Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer comes in. Perfect for dry or dehydrated skin, this lightweight, non-greasy formula hydrates with no residue, just an even surface and soothed skin. Apply to your face and throat after moisturising and use as great base for make-up or simply go foundation free.

Speaking of foundation, if you find this gets too much over the winter months, try the Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20  as an alternative. This lightly-tinted hydrating treatment provides a sheer wash of colour that lasts all day thanks to natural, light-diffusing Iron Oxides. Hydrolyzed Pearl amino acids, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Walnut Seed extracts improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine dehydration lines. It is free from artificial colours and fragrances and comes in light, medium and dark so there is something for everyone.

If dry, stressed skin is getting you down and you want to get a little bit of suppleness back, as well as reducing fine, dry lines, treat yourself to the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque. This popular hydrating product gently restores moisture back into dry skin without creating oiliness. Botanical extracts of Orange, Hops, Cucumber and Arnica work together to calm inflammation, whilst antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E and Pro-Vitamin B5 nourish and replenish the skin leaving it feel silky smooth once again.

Defend Your Skin with Dermalogica and Decleor

Defending Skin with Dermalogica and Decleor

At this time of year, it seems like the weather is going on an all-out assault of your skin. If it’s not freezing rain or icy days, it’s winter sun getting in on the act! Dermalogica and Decleor offer some amazing products which defend your skin against a variety of outside elements and we thought we’d take a look at five of the best.

Dermalogica Daily Defence Block SPF15

It contains a high SPF to shield the skin from the sun’s harmful rays as well as moisturising deeply to help to combat dehydration, one of the leading factors in prematurely aging skin. It’s a super-lightweight fluid which makes it ideal for everyday use.

Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard


As the men in your life will attest, shaving can be really tough on your face, leaving the skin feeling sore and raw, which is why using a pre-shave defending treatment like this one from Dermalogica is a really good idea. It protects the skin from razor burn, helps to lift hairs for a more efficient shave and replenishes moisture which is stripped away during shaving.

Protecting your skin from the sun is SO important from a health and beauty point of view which is why Decleor have produced this highly protective face cream. It not only gives you a layer of protection but also protects the cell’s DNA to combat the signs of ageing and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It also reduces the reactions that your skin has to the sun, giving you a really effective level of defence.

Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF50


If you have a moisturiser for your face that you’re truly devoted to, but want to defend your skin against the sun’s harmful rays, then this booster from Dermalogica is a must-have in your bathroom cabinet. It can be added to any other face cream to give you a layer of highly-protective SPF50, keeping your face safe from burning and aging prematurely.
