Chamomile, not just for tea

Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser

When you think of chamomile, you tend to automatically think of the herbal tea that helps lower stress levels, regulate sleep and boosts the immune system.

However, it is the soothing qualities of this plant that can also have a positive impact on our skin. Due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich nature of chamomile, it is found in a variety of beauty products and some of those are stocked on the Pure-Beauty website.

One of our favourite new products is the Elemis Soothing Chamomile Cleanser. Specifically created for sensitive skin, this cleaner gently removes dirt and dissolves make-up without upsetting the natural balance of the skin. The unique formula contains extracts of Chamomile, Lecithin, Vitamin E and F which come together to soothe the skin and leave it feeling nourished and soft.

If your complexion is sensitive and prone to redness, chamomile can really help. The Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster is a concentrated, oil-free blend of botanicals that calm and hydrate irritated skin. Soothing Red Raspberry, Honey and calming flower extracts, including Calendula, Chamomile and Cornflower, reduce irritation and restore natural moisture levels. Just a little massaged into clean skin can make a big difference from the very first application.

If you suffer with dark spots and shadows under your eyes, you might want to try the Decleor Anti-Dark Circle Multi-Brightening Eye Care. A unique White Focus complex has been enhanced with Vitamin C and Chamomile to help reduce puffiness as well as hydrate and smooth the skin leaving it looking clear and bright.

Chamomile is great at dealing with the inflammation associated with breakouts, which is why it’s one of the key ingredients in the Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier product. While this is a medicated treatment it is also packed with Cinnamon Bark Extract, Green Tea and Chamomile to offer a holistic approach to acne. After cleansing simply apply Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier sparingly to areas prone to excess oil production and breakouts and let it get to work.

During the winter months, our bodies can get tired and dull and this is where the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream comes into play. This advanced body cream is full of essential plant oils that smooth and condition the skin so it can deal with the elements and central heating. Hydroxy acids from sugar cane and apple are mixed with Lactic Acid which together combat dryness. Green Tea, Lavender, Tea Tree and Chamomile oils have been blended to soothe and soften the skin and essential oils of Sandalwood, Orange, Clary Sage, Patchouli and Rosemary help hydrate it and lock in much-needed moisture.

Elemis De-Stress Massage Oil is a popular product at Pure Beauty and is the perfect way to soothe the mind, melt tension and leaves your body feeling free and relaxed. Essential oils of Rosewood, Melissa, Marjoram, Geranium, Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile have been blended together to create a deeply relaxing potion that helps bring dry, tired and mature skin back to life.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Dermatologist At Bay!

An Apple a Day Keeps the Dermatologist At Bay!

November is a big time in the apple harvesting calendar, with many varieties ready to pick and enjoy in crumbles, pies and other delights, but did you know that apples contain enzymes which are really good for your skin? Several of the products we sell contain some element of apple power, so we’ve put together a handy list for you to look through so you can see which products to choose when you shop for the ‘apple’ of your eye!

Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream

This moisturiser from Dermalogica may seem like a generic body lotion that you just slather all over yourself, but it actually contains a whole load of essential plant oils and hydroxy acids, from apples and sugar cane, which resurface your skin, leaving it smoother and more supple. Green tea, lavender, tea tree and chamomile oils soothe and soften the skin with their anti-inflammatory properties, while essential oils of sandalwood, orange, clary sage, patchouli and rosemary help to hydrate the skin and keep the skin moisturised for longer.

Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash

Wish so many cleansers it feels as though there’s a constant battle between being powerful enough to really clean away impurities but not being so powerful that it irritates your skin. This gentle foaming facial wash from Elemis has been formulated with that in mind and harnesses apple amino acid which helps produce the foamy texture and protects the skin’s moisture barrier while keeping your skin perfectly clean.

Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer

These handy little pouches give a perfectly measured daily dose of resurfacing cream which uses botanical skin brighteners and hydroxy acids from apples to totally transform your complexion. Unlike other similar products, they prevent any redness or irritation while helping to even skin tone and balance pigmentation.

Elemis Smart Cleanse Micellar Water

Micellar water is probably one of the trendiest products on the market right now, with almost every beauty brand offering their own version, and Elemis is no exception. Hydroxy acids from apples combines with organic English rose water and soothing anti-oxidant rich Chamomile, so that skin is gently cleansed, whilst the natural moisture barrier is maintained. Regular use with leave your skin looking radiant and refreshed.

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Although it’s called a ‘lip’ treatment on the tube, this is actually a perioral treatment meaning that it can be used to combat fine lines and crows feet around the whole mouth and under-nose area. In addition to hyaluronic acid, Nightly Lip Treatment uses this moisturising saccharide complex extracted from dried apples to help enhance skin hydration and smooth lips. Smoothing this area will help the whole face to appear more youthful.

Products to take into the shower

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Cream

Nothing beats a long, leisurely soak in the bath when you need to relax after a busy day, but sometimes a shower is all you have time for. While soft lighting and scented candles might be out, even if you are running in and out of the water, you can still use gorgeous products in the shower that will make your skin feel and look fantastic.

At Pure Beauty we sell a range of great products that are perfect when you want to wash and go.

A great go to shower option is the Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash which is packed with purifying essential oils and natural extracts and is perfect for all skin types. Soap-free Quillaja Saponaria extract cleanses the skin, leaving it feeling soft and silky. Essential oils of Tea Tree, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary gently purify without stripping the skin’s own natural goodness and oils of Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage moisturise the skin, leaving it smooth and conditioned.

We love the Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo because it leaves hair looking shiny and feeling conditioned every time you use it. Argan Oil has been added to help protect hair from heat and sun damage, while increasing softness, shine and manageability and Avocado Oil minimises breakage. Thanks to Grapefruit Peel, Lavender and Geranium Oil your hair smells amazing and your senses are invigorated. It is a good idea to follow with the Dermalogica Daily Conditioning Rinse as this gentle formula restores softness and shine to your locks thanks to Pro-Vitamin B5.

The shower is the perfect place to put the Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush to the test. Using this natural cactus bristle brush helps stimulate lymph flow and keep skin healthy. We suggest you start at the soles of your feet then work up the legs towards the heart. Also use on you hands, arms, tummy and back for an all over treatment and finish with your neck and scalp but do not use on the face and chest.

Another way to get your skin really clean and clear, is to use the Elemis Devils Mint Body Scrub. This spa worthy product gently cleanses and smoothes the body, whilst removing the dead cells that can dull your skin. Full of silicon-rich seaplant particles, Devils Apron seaweed and Peppermint essential oil, skin is left feeling super soft and ready to soak up your moisturiser.

If it is a truly luxurious cream wash you are looking for, you will find it with them Elemis Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream. Thanks to advanced body care technology, this exceptionally skin friendly formulation cleanses the skin but doesn’t take away vital protective surface oils. A unique infusion of exotic Tahitian Monoi oil blended with Tiare flowers and Frangipani flowers means skin is left feeling soft, supple and delicately scented. For total body indulgence after your shower, dry your skin with a soft towel and apply the Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil.

If you’re really in a rush, take the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel into the shower with you too. This is a soap-free, foaming gel that really cleans the skin but doesn’t strip away oils or upset the moisture balance. Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe the skin, while Quillaja Saponaria gently rids your complexion of toxins and make  and the Dermalogica Sponge Cloth is perfect to use with this. Once you are out of the shower, simply tone and moisturise and you are ready to go.

Get Yourself Some Avocado Power!

Get Yourself Some Avocado Power!

Royalty-free image

For a long time, avocado was viewed as a bit of a throwback to the Eighties, where everyone wanted to impress their dinner party guests with exotic ingredients. However, the mighty avocado is going through a bit of a renaissance with nutrition experts extolling their virtues at every opportunity and people using them for all kinds of recipes – even cake! Avocado oil has a lot of amazing properties, especially in beauty terms, which is why Elemis, Decleor and Dermalogica all have products containing it. Read on for five of our favourites:

Dermalogica UltraCalming Serum Concentrate

This highly concentrated serum is designed for over sensitised skin which is suffering with redness, feeling sore and tight and having inflammatory flare-ups. Avocado oil is used because it’s rich in essential fatty acids, ceramides and phytosterols that fortify skin’s barrier lipid layer, protecting against assaults that trigger redness and irritation. It can be used twice daily alongside the other products in the Ultra Calming range for soothing results.

Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Rich Cream

If your skin is suffering with extreme dryness then this rich cream is the one for you. It contains avocado oils, as well as soy plant oils, to deeply nourish the skin and add back much needed moisture, which is especially good at this time of year when skin can feel even dryer. It also protects the skin against daily pollutants which prevents further drying.

Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo

Avocado isn’t just great for your skin – it’s also good for your hair, too! This shampoo is a sulphate-free formula which utilises avocado to minimise breakage and help the scalp to retain moisture. It can be used daily without stripping the hair of it’s natural layer of protection and protects hair from heat and sun damage, while increasing softness, shine and manageability.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

This night cream from Elemis has been specially formulated for skin which is dealing with the ageing process to help to bolster the skin’s natural regeneration process. It harnesses the power of avocado oil to deliver protection against free radicals and maximises your skin’s ability to repair and breathe at night. Just a few nights of usage will drastically improve your skins elasticity and suppleness.

Dermalogica Lip Renewal Complex

The lips are a really common place for the signs of ageing to be prominent, which is why Dermalogica developed this Lip Renewal Complex, designed to smooth the lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth. Vitamin E fights damaging free radicals while a moisturising blend of avocado oil, combined with shea and cocoa seed butters, quickly smooths rough, uneven lips.
