At Pure Beauty we offer a range of high quality products from Dermalogica that can help prevent some of the dryness, flaking and itchiness associated with ‘winter skin’.
Dry Skin can be a real pain during the winter months but the key to comfort is to use the right moisturising cream to hydrate it. The best time to apply moisturiser is after a shower or bath whilst your skin is still damp and the product can easily soak in without clogging pores. A winter winner is the Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance. This uber-rich moisturiser is packed with vitamin C to help smooth dry lines and skin damage, leaving skin feeling super-soft and supple. Superoxide Dismutase, vitamins A and E, and Ginkgo help protects against damage caused by harsh environmental conditions, which is really helpful. Soothing Coneflower and Hydrocotyl, have been mixed with extracts of Grape Seed and Wild Yam which help reduce the signs of prematurely-aging skin, leaving it smooth and firmer-looking so you can face your day whatever the weather.
We all know it is vital to keep hands clean and germ free but try to avoid alcohol-based hand gels and instead use a mild soap and a moisturing hand cream. You can’t go wrong with the Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment, which is designed to protect and repair chapped hands whilst strengthening nails and preventing splitting and peeling. Pro-vitamin B5 and Algae Extract combined with pure Sweet Almond Oil help heal dry, rough skin and offer an invisible barrier against environmental damage. Antioxidant extracts of Ginkgo Biloba and Grape Seed plus Vitamin E neutralise free radical activity, guarding against further damage, so all you need are your favourite gloves and you are ready to go.
Cold weather can leave skin feeling dull and parched so as well as moisturising twice daily, also add a masque to your beauty routine to freshen and boost your skin. Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque restores moisture without unwanted oiliness, helping to restore suppleness and reduces the appearance of fine, dry lines. Soothing extracts of Bitter Orange, Hops, Cucumber and Arnica reduce inflammation, whilst Vitamins A, C and E and Pro-Vitamin B5 nourish and replenish the skin leaving it feeling soft and healthy once again. Apply a smooth film of the masque to clean skin and allow it to sink in for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse with luke warm water and apply your moisturiser after patting skin dry gently.
We tend to keep our lips protected in the summer and on the beach, but come winter they are often left to get chapped thanks to the cold, wind and UV rays shining through the clouds. Pop Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment in your bag this winter and you won’t go wrong. The unique blend of Anti-Ozonate Complex, Shea Butter, Oat Extract and Vitamin E protect lips from the weather and help maintain a natural barrier so they are kissably soft.
Whilst we know oily skin can cause spots, many of use don’t realise that very dry skin can actually cause breakouts.
