Step 3 – Treat (pt 2) Acne

2017-03-04T21:06:51+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

Treating Acne is never easy and quick fix promises are usually doomed to fail. A long-term dedicated approach is key. PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE Acne sufferers tend to over-wash their face in an attempt to keep it clean and oil free, but this can make matters worse. Avoid over washing, exfoliating and stimulating your skin. This strips the skin of natural moisture and leads to production of more oil to compensate. Finding a balance between reducing the production of oil, whilst maintaining the [...]

Step 3 – Treat (pt 1)

2017-03-04T21:06:51+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

A good skin regime should always consist of 4 elements: Cleansing, Nourishing, Treating and Protecting. Hopefully you've already read my posts on cleansing and nourishing - today the focus is on 'Treating'. Beyond our early years, very few of us have the perfect complexion. Acne, blackheads, spots, rosacea, broken veins, eye bags, lines and wrinkles can lead many of us to seek treatment for our skin. You can add a treatment to your regime in two ways: 1. Topical products 2. A beauty treatment/cosmetic [...]

Step 2: Nourish

Over time our skin is gradually depleted of essential nutrients, and is subjected to years of environmental damage - like the sun’s aging rays - and it can become dull, parched and lose its resilience. Serums containing anti-oxidants are a light and easy way to get added nutrients into deeper layers of the skin, that regular moisturisers are not able to reach. Vitamins A, C & E and/or Hyaluronic Acid can be added into your daily regime singly or in combination and are generally [...]

Step 1: Cleanse

2017-03-04T21:06:51+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

Cleansing is the first essential step in our daily skincare routine and a key part of keeping our skin healthy and youthful. Your cleanser should cleanse without irritating or drying your skin. An indication of a healthy working skin is one that doesn't need toning (to restore the Ph balance) or too much moisturising. 20-SOMETHING SKIN Your skin is in its prime and you need to look after it. Use soap-free cleansers and always remove make-up before bed. Normal to oily skin types [...]

Micellar Water – cleanse on the go

2013-10-18T10:57:42+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

Micellar Water is a fast rising star in the beauty and cosmetic world. Makeup artists at photo-shoots and those working backstage at fashion shows rave about Micellar Water's ability to get rid of makeup without the use of water. It gets its name from the science behind the product. It's made of "micelles", which are tiny oil molecules suspended in water. Rather than being made of a foaming solution, that contains soaps and harsh chemicals that grind away dirt and makeup, Micellar Water's small oil molecules [...]

Daily essentials for skin health

2017-03-04T21:06:51+00:00By |Categories: Latest Discoveries|

Do you have way too many skin products at home? Some you use but most of which you have tried and left in the back of the drawer or cabinet, whilst you moved on to the ‘next big thing’ in beauty. Try to resist everything that’s recommended and stick to things you know work for you. Ask yourself 'Am I happy with my skin?' and if the answer is no, it may be time for a change. We need to mix things up a bit [...]

More sleep, less wrinkles

2013-10-05T10:31:05+00:00By |Categories: Face Facts|

I have always believed that getting your 'beauty sleep' was just a saying but a recent study by Estée Lauder reveals it is far from fantasy. The study is the first of its kind to conclusively demonstrate the relationship between lack of sleep and its affect on skin ageing. A study was done on 60 women aged 30-49, half of whom were considered sleep deprived. It revealed those averaging less than 5 hours sleep per night, had considerably more fine lines, wrinkles, uneven [...]
