A serum, The Little Giant of Skincare.

Top tips to look your best, no matter what the weather…

FB_IMG_1456911510572Well, supposedly spring is round the corner but there is still a distinct chill in the air, which can play havoc with our skin and general health. Cold temperatures, an A to Z of storms and the bracing wind can leave you thinking you’re destined to have sullen, dry skin and frizzy hair – but it doesn’t have to be that way! These top beauty tips for all seasons, especially the colder months, will help you stay glowing and gorgeous – no matter what the weather!

Time to get your H20 fix…

The Christmas party season is well behind us, so now is the time to dose up on the good stuff as we head towards the warmer and often dreaded ‘dare to bare’ months.

In winter, it’s likely we will feel less thirsty but it’s still important we get the recommended amount of water each and every day to help keep ourselves – and skin – hydrated, inside and out. In addition to drinking plenty of water, herbal teas, diluted sugar free fruit drinks, why not try clear soups as a tasty way of topping up your water levels and flushing out those dreaded toxins. By the summer months, your skin will be glowing, gorgeous and cellulite will appear less obvious or non existent – believe us, you’ll be glad you topped up your H20 consumption.

Also, why not try juicing? It’s a quick and easy way to load your body with essential nutrients. Our previous blog is full of tasty detox recipes, so why not give them a go?

SPF is always necessary, even when it’s cold outside!

You may think that just because it’s cold outside, that sun protection is not needed. But that is not the case as UV rays are still potent even in the winter months and can still cause sun damage. Try switching to moisturiser and/or foundation which have built-in SPF to adopt a fuss-free way to incorporate sun protection into your daily routine.

Your lips deserve to be luscious all year long!

If you’re feeling self-conscious about a dry, flaky pout then try an exfoliant on lips to get rid of flaky patches and as tempting it may be, fight the urge to constantly lick your lips as it only dries them out more. Try a lip balm which is both moisturising and natural and doesn’t include any drying ingredients such as camphor and menthol, which tend to worsen a cracked, inflamed mouth.

Feed your skin from within…

There’s nothing more beautiful than a natural glow and did you know that certain foods can really help? Try foods such as oily fish like salmon and tuna (high in omega-3 which help plump up skin’s collagen production), spinach and avocadoes (high in vitamin E, which protects skin from UV rays and cell damage) and vitamin C-rich foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits (they’ll help keep wrinkles at bay). Sugar won’t be doing any favours for sallow winter skin, so get snacking on seeds and nuts for a zinc boost, essential for preventing rashes and unwanted skin irritations.

To keep your skin in tip top condition all year round, why not try the our NEW hydra facial which can give you amazing results transforming tired, sallow and dull skin, into skin that looks beautiful, soft and supple. THIS is the hyaluronic acid approach to rehydrate your skin.

Top tips to help pesky pores appear smaller…

Pores, we’ve all got them – but sometimes they can appear more prominent on our face, making skin look less radiant and not at its best. It’s therefore no surprise that here at PurePerfection.

Firstly, what exactly are pores?

Pores are tiny openings in the surface of the skin where sweat and oil is released to help regulate the skin’s temperature and also keep skin naturally moisturised and healthy. They are also home to hair follicles. The skin has pores all over its surface, but they are often more prominent on the face because the sebaceous (oil) glands are largest here. Pores can sometimes get clogged up with dirt, makeup, oil or dead skin cells which is what causes acne. Therefore it’s important to keep skin and pores clean to prevent buildup and, in turn, the dreaded acne!

Why is it that some people’s pores appear bigger than others?

We each have very different skin so it’s only natural that some people’s pores will appear larger than others. People who have a darker skin tone or olive complexion are more likely to have larger looking pores. It is also linked to skin type and age. For example, if you have oily skin, then the pores are more active and tend to be larger as a result. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity which can also give pores a larger appearance.

What do I do to make my pores appear smaller?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to physically shrink pores but the good news is, you can make them look smaller than they are which will help give the appearance of smooth and radiant skin.

Firstly, it is important to rid your skin of all the things which could potentially clog your pores, leading to a more prominent appearance, including dead skin cells, dirt etc. A good cleansing routine which includes steaming, exfoliation and microdermabrasion can minimise the appearance of pores.

Cleanse

We’ve all been guilty of falling asleep with our makeup on but this is a big no-no for those of us in pursuit of radiant skin and perfect pores! Try adopting a double cleanse method in which you use a makeup wipe to remove impurities on the surface and then penetrate deeper by applying a cleanser. Treating your skin to a steam facial (which can easily be done at home) can also help to open pores and release any nasty impurities, leading to clean and soft skin. Our recent post all about ‘How to wash your skin properly’ will help ensure you are cleansing your skin the right, most effective way.

We offer a wide range of facial cleanser to suit any particular skin type with toners to compliment.

Our Microdermabrasion and resurfacing peeling facials are a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin and is perfect for congested, uneven skin with open pores – helping to tighten and brighten tired and dull skin. Regular microdermabrasion and resurfacing facials will really help ensure skin and pores appear in tip-top condition. Find out more at your nearest Pure Perfection salon.

Prime

Using primer is another great way to minimise the appearance of pores as it helps to create a barrier between makeup and the skin. Primer creates more of an even skin tone as it prevents makeup from sinking into your pores and clogging them, leading to unwanted breakouts. Products for pore refining are available at any of our salons. Please call for a complimentary sample of any of our facial products)
