Whether you’ve got issues with your eyes, mouth, neck or bottom, most women have an area which they’d love to be a little firmer. Today, we’re looking at some of our favourite products from Dermalogica and Decleor which help you to get rid of all the wobbly bits that you hate, with minimal effort.

Dermalogica UltraSmoothing Eye Serum

If you’ve got sensitive skin, it can be hard to find products which are both powerful and delicate enough to attack the signs of ageing without causing irritation. This eye serum from Dermalogica is designed to intensely firm the skin while remaining completely neutral for sensitised skin. Brown and red algae and golden chamomile helps minimize puffiness, as oat kernel extract helps soothe fragile skin.

Decleor Intensive Youth Concentrate

Decleor developed a unique combination of ingredients called the “Lift Jeunesse Complex”, which is designed to actively firm the skin and provide immediate lift to the face and decolletage. Their Intensive Youth Concentrate is packed with this clever complex and will reactivate collagen synthesis, reorganise, consolidate and tighten the dermal mesh, acting like a real “cell lift”.

Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist

As well as acting as a powerful antioxidant when spritzed onto the skin, this mist from Dermalogica will hydrate the face and offer flash-firming properties which give an instantly more youthful visage. It also creates a barrier over the skin to prevent further damage by free radicals, making it a powerful ally in the fight to firm-up.

Decleor Sculpt Stretch Mark Restructuring Gel-Cream

If the wobbly parts causing you to worry are decidedly more south than your face then this gel-cream from Decleor is perfect for you. It’s designed to be used on areas of your body where stretched skin might be an issue, especially after pregnancy or weight loss and can help to tone and firm the skin of your thighs, bottom, breasts and upper arms.

Dermalogica Extra Firming Booster

This liquid booster from Dermalogica performs a number of functions; boosting the skin’s moisture and firmness levels, erasing fine lines and reversing dryness as well as protecting skin from antioxidants and reversing the signs of ageing. It contains seaweed extract, high levels of vitamin C and protein peptides which all combine to give a powerful firming action.

MediBac – the Dermalogica way to treat adult acne

Dermalogica Breakout Control

There is nothing more disheartening than having to use an eye cream as well as spot cream as part of a grown up beauty regime.

Popular belief is that acne is something suffered by teenagers, but the reality can be quite different. Problem skin can affect anyone at any age and can be emotionally devastating, taking away confidence and lowering self-esteem amongst even the most assertive of us.

Fluctuating hormone levels, genetics, stress, environmental factors and diet can all play a part in skin issues. As well as addressing these, it is also vital to use products that are best suited to your skin and the problems it faces.

At Pure-Beauty we stock MediBac from Dermalogica and our customers love it, because it works. MediBac is powerful, effective treatment plan that has been specifically formulated to treat, clear and prevent adult acne.

One of the most popular products in the range is Dermalogica Breakout Control. This is an invisible treatment cream that clears, controls and prevents breakouts without the drying effects of Benzoyl Peroxide. The gentle, yet effective, fast-absorbing formula is applied before moisturiser and immediately begins to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Oil-absorbing sponges control excess sebum and a unique blend of natural botanical ingredients help soothe skin.

When you think of spot treatments, heavy, industrial, strong-smelling potions spring to mind, this couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion. This amazing product is as light as a feather and packed with clever micro-sponges that absorb the oil sitting on the skin’s surface thus helping to combat shine. Perfect for oily skin that is prone to breakouts, regular use helps control sebum production, soothes and mositurises irritated skin as well as helping to eliminate congestion and prevent future breakouts. This product does contain Salicylic Acid which can irritate very sensitive skin, but in general it is a fantastic way to deal with problem complexions and transform them.

If your skin is oily and you need a medicated topical treatment to help with breakouts, give the Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier a go. Used after cleaning, this product is excellent at reducing congestion and also controls the annoying shine many complexions suffer from. Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin purify the skin and Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles helping to stop further breakouts. Cinnamon Bark Extract helps reduce spots, while Green Tea and Chamomile extracts soothe the inflammation associated with breakouts. The overall results lead to smoother, happier skin and peace of mind.

Even acne prone, oily skin needs a good moisturiser, and that’s why so many of our customers love the Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF30. This lightweight, ultra-sheer sunscreen not only protects the skin from damaging UV rays but also helps prevent shine, regulates oil production and soothes painful inflammation.

With your skin clean and well cared for, you might also want to cover any blemishes and this is where the Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment comes into play. This is an intense, tinted treatment that naturally conceals breakouts as well as helping to clear them up. It gets to work fast and during the day will help eliminate the bacteria associated with acne while clearing congestion so future breakouts are minimised. Win, win!

Product Focus: Dermalogica MAP-15 Regenerator

Every so often, we offer a product from our ranges which is so impressive that it deserves a post all of its own and this is definitely true of the anti-ageing wonder-product Dermalogica MAP-15 Regenerator. We thought we’d give you a comprehensive run-down of this product and exactly what it does so that you can decide if it’s for you. 

What is it?

Dermalogica MAP-15 is a revolutionary product which starts as a powder but transforms into an emulsion to deliver high concentrations of Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) directly into the skin, which dramatically improve firmness and clarity.  The silky emulsion glides gently over skin for efficient application, especially around the delicate eye and mouth areas. It also stimulates collagen production to plump and brighten the skin, giving a more youthful appearance, as well as neutralising free radicals and increasing oxygen utilisation in the skin.

Who’s it for?

If you have dry or prematurely ageing skin this this product would be perfect for you. It helps to moisturise and revive skin which is lacking in moisture or is starting to show the early signs of ageing. We would recoomend this product particularly to clients who are over the age of 45, have spent a lot of time in the sun or have skin damage from smoking or some other cause.

What’s in it?

The highly-scientific formula contains a whole host of different ingredients, all of which perform different functions. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a stable form of vitamin C which the skin uses to help generate collagen, hyaluronic acid helps to lock moisture deep within the skin and glucosamine helps to protect the skin against damaging sugar proteins which speed up the signs of ageing.

How do I use it?

Dermalogica MAP-15 Regenerator can be used in a couple of different ways – either as a spot treatment in areas where you feel need a little extra help against ageing, or applied all over the face and neck as a complete anti-ageing cream. It can be used alongside your usual Dermalogica moisturiser to increase the skin’s moisturisation exponentially.

Where do I get it?

From Pure Beauty, of course! Dermalogica MAP-15 Regenerator is available for the reduced price of £64.75, with FREE delivery in the UK.

We are pretty confident that you could choose any product from the site and fall in love with it.

From magic moisturiuers and super serums to beautiful balms and excellent exfoliants, the reviews and feedback from customers say it all.

We have decided to give you a pick of products from the site that we adore, and think you would too.

If you have a hectic schedule but still want to take care of your skin, Decleor Hydra-Radiance Smoothing and Cleansing Mousse is for you. This unique 3-in-1 cleanser leaves your skin beautiful, glowing and healthier looking than ever. The mouse turns into a rich cream when mixed with water and when applied to the face it gently but effectively washes away dirt and make-up. The exfoliating properties of Grape Juice, Papaya Extract and Japanese White Mulberry take away dull, dead skin cells and Neroli Essential Oil leaves your skin crystal clear and luminous after the very first use. The mouse comes in a pretty white back and includes two polishing cloths for more effective results.

As we age and the elements take their toil, we all need a little extra care for our eyes and this is where the Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair comes into play. This ultra-rich, fortified eye cream has been created using antioxidant Vitamin C and Wild Yam, which together help repair prematurely ageing skin and smooth the fine dehydration lines that can cause make-up to clog. Cucumber and Arnica help keep your skin healthy and supple and Grape Seed Extract is perfect for protecting against harmful free radicals.

For those days when full make up is too much, we really recommend trying the Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20. This lightly tinted product is free from artificial fragrances and colours and provides a wash of colour as well as all day critical hydration. Light-diffusing iron oxides means skin looks radiant and thanks to a broad spectrum sunscreen it is protected from harmful UV rays. Effective amino acids work with antioxidant Walnut Seed extract work to improve the texture of the skin and ongoing use will help reduce the appearance of fine dehydration lines.

You might not ever of thought of choosing this, but the Decleor Relax Intense Relaxing Dry Oil is one of our very favourite products on the site. This super serum contains gorgeous Vetiver Essential Oil from Madagascar, that is a fair-trade and 100% pure. As well as soothing the skin it also softens it and helps relieve any tension you are feeling. You can apply the serum to your entire body using upward movements, paying particular attention to any problem areas, then sit back, relax and let the oil get to work.

An up and coming skin saviour at Pure-Beauty is the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant. Thanks to triple-action adsorption combined with physical and chemical exfoliation this is perfect for anyone with concerns about prematurely ageing skin. The unique formula is activated when mixed with water.

Pamper Your Pores

When it comes to skincare, sometimes you have to take things back to basics and care for the smallest areas to improve the bigger picture. Pores can be problematic, harbouring dirt or being too visible, so we thought we’d take a look at five products which can help you to refine your pores, keep them clean and make your whole face look better in the process.

Dermalogica Precleanse

Sometimes, simply cleansing your face isn’t enough to really get into the pores, which is why something like this precleaning solution from Dermalogica is a favourite among professionals. It dissolves oil-based make-up, sebum, sunscreens and environmental pollutants from skin’s surface, enabling skin to be thoroughly cleansed. It also removes oils without compromising skin’s natural barrier lipids or clogging pores. Use on a cotton pad to remove eye make up and then spread a generous amount over the whole face before wetting with water to create a powerful, dirt-zapping emulsion.

Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer

Using a primer before you apply your foundation is a great way to ensure that your skin looks absolutely perfect. The primer refines pores, blurs imperfections and adds moisture to dry or combination skin. It also dissolves shine and prevents it from reccuring which should help your make-up to stay in place all day long.

Decleor Micellar Oil

Micellar oils are excellent at working deep into your pores to get rid of even the most stubborn dirt as they contain tiny particles of oil suspended in water which turn into a milky emulsion when applied to a wet face. This micellar oil from Decleor contains sweet almond oil which is rich in essential fatty acids which help to strengthen and soothe the skin, while the other natural ingredients help to maintain optimal hydration in the skin.

Dermalogica Daily Clean Scrub

Keeping your pores clean is important for everyone, but perhaps even more important for men who shave their faces because of the potential for shaving rash and ingrown hair. This scrub from Dermalogica helps to release ingrowing hairs, scrub away dirt and dead skin cells and prepare the skin for shaving to ensure that you end up with the best finish possible.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant

Using any other exfoliant on a daily basis could leave your skin red and sensitised, and could ultimately lead to serious damage to the upper layers of your skin. This SUPERfoliant from Dermalogica, however, is actually perfect for every day use and will absorb environmental toxins from deep within the pores, while niacinamide, red algae and tara fruit extract help guard against the damaging effects of pollution.
