When we think of someone who is refined, usually an upper class person who is well-educated and well-dressed springs to mind, however, when it comes to beauty, one doesn’t need elocution lessons or a personal dressmaker to be refined! Here at Pure Beauty, we stock several products which help to “refine” your skin, and we’ve compiled a list of five of the best:
This exfoliator from Decleor is designed to refine the skin by ridding you of the top layer of dead cells and revealing the fresh, new skin beneath. It contains pearl sugar, argan shell and orange peel with fruit acids (grape, pineapple and passion fruit) to both physically and chemically slough away dead skin and leave your skin feeling smoothed and refined.
This clay mask and cleanser is perfect for oily skin as it wicks excess sebum away from the face and refines the skin’s surface. It contains cooling cucumber and healing sage to calm over-sensitised skin while extracts of sambucus, ivy and lemon soother the skin and prevent future breakouts of spots, blemishes and oiliness.
This gel mask is so potent that it cannot be used on the delicate eye and lip areas, so caution when applying should be taken! It helps to refine and smooth the skins surface, while encouraging effective re-texturising of the skins surface and balancing sebum levels, without compromising natural pH levels.
Refining products needn’t be abrasive, and this cleanser from Jan Marini is proof. It’s a gentle, totally soap-free formula which refines the skin, leaving it clean and nourished. It contains glycolic acid as a follicular cleansing aid and resurfacing agent and it enhances the benefits of other glycolic acid products, when used together as part of a daily regime.
This oil serum is designed for all-over body usage and is associated with self-massage techniques to keep the skin soft and supple. It’s made from 100% natural origin ingredients, and is concentrated with essential oils of grapefruit and patchouli known for their aromachological energizing and stimulating properties. Regular use refines the skin and soothes the senses.
