    10 Skincare New Year Resolutions

    New Year, new beginnings! A great time to be grateful for what you have and plan for the future! A time to think about what you want to experience and what you want to change, what you want to achieve, and how. In other words, the New Year’s Resolutions! Here are ten ideas for your New Year’s Resolutions in skincare:

     

    1. A daily skincare routine

    This is more important than getting the latest, most expensive serum, and the benefits are amazing in the long run. Even if you are in your early 20s or your 50s, you need a daily skincare routine that you can commit to. It can be as simple as cleansing and hydration or more elaborate with cleanser, toner, serum, moisturising cream, eye cream, and so on. It can be once a day or twice a day. Consistency is the key here. Patience too! Don’t change skincare products after just a few applications (not unless they are not suitable for your skin type). Use the same products for at least 2 to 3 months before moving on to

    The secrets of skin care in summer

    The secrets of skin care in summer

     

    During summer, it is highly unlikely to have a perfect complexion with no efforts. Most of the time, the skin is oilier or more dehydrated and irritated. There are a few factors to blame for this, and among them, we can mention the UV rays, the heat that often causes an increased production of sebum, dry wind, and even the seawater or the water in the pool. If your skin tends towards dryness, the dehydration that can occur in summer can lead to premature wrinkle occurrence, as well as skin peeling and over sensitive skin. 

    However, there are specific skincare rules for summer that you can follow to get glowing skin and a bright complexion, even when it’s hot outside. 

     

    Secrets of skin care in summer:

     1. Use moisturising creams with SPF

    3 Anti-aging serums you should try in your 30s

    3 Anti-aging serums you should try in your 30s

     

    Skincare is what makes all the difference between a dull, prematurely aged skin and a glowing, fresh complexion, whatever your age might be. As you age, your skincare routine becomes more and more important, starting in your 30s when certain skin conditions tend to accentuate, and collagen production starts to decrease. This translates into fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention dull and lacklustre skin. Skin elasticity and glow are associated with a younger age, but we can make this last past your 20s. Our skin specialists advise women to start investing in good quality serums once they get to their 30s. More than this, keeping a healthy and balanced diet, as well as regular facials, can considerably improve the texture of your skin. 

    Of all the skincare products we have available for the skin on your face, the anti-aging serums are probably the most sought-after products. They have

    5 Beauty mistakes that add years to your face

    5 Beauty mistakes that add years to your face

     

    The role of makeup is to accentuate our strengths and to correct small imperfections. However, some women make beauty mistakes that can add years to their faces. As a rule of thumb, the makeup should only be applied after your daily skincare routine. This means that you should prepare your face before putting on makeup. Always choose natural shades that compliment your skin tone and avoid any type of excesses. When it comes to makeup, the “less is more” rule is always valid. More than this, it is very important to choose your makeup according to the outfit you wear, as well as the event. The makeup you wear for an evening out with friends should be different from the makeup you apply for a day at the office. 

    Now let’s have a look at five very common beauty mistakes that can add years to your face:

     

    1. You forget about skincare

    How to get rid of bags under your eyes

    How to get rid of bags under your eyes

    Those bags under your eyes are not only unaesthetic but also tricky to get rid of. Often, they are considered a sign of aging, but they can also be caused by the lack of proper sleep, some allergies, and other unhealthy habits that lead to water retention. The good news is that there are means and methods to get rid of the bags under your eyes. But first, let’s have a look at what causes bags under the eyes. 

    Causes of eye puffiness

    In a vast majority of cases, bags under the eyes are not a symptom of a hidden affliction, but just an annoying aesthetic imperfection. However, they can be caused by several factors, such as:

    • The weakening of the fine muscles around the eyes
    • Water retention under the eyes
    • Decreased collagen production that occurs with the natural aging process
    • Genetic inheritance

    If bags under the eyes come a

    Best skincare routine for your 30s

    Skincare is an essential step to maintain your beauty and glowing complexion for as long as possible. The care and interest you show to your skin will reflect on your face after decades. The skin is like a business card displaying information about ourselves, our lifestyle, and the things we care about.

    Each age has its beauty and benefits. Most women start a beauty routine as early as in their 20s while others only feel the need to do so after reaching their 30s. And each woman develops a daily routine that is suitable for her age, lifestyle, and time she has available. Generally speaking, we can’t talk about a universally valid age-related skincare routine. However, there are general rules that should be considered when it comes to taking care of your skin in your 30s. 

    Cellular renewal starts to slow down once we reach our 30s, so the skin might start looking a bit tired and dull. Fine line and wrinkles might start to occur, especially the ones known as expression w

    Best night creams for your skin type

    The skincare routine needs to be adapted to the skin type you have. Also, it should target specific needs and issues such as dehydrated, pigmented, acne-prone, dull skin, etc. There are several general categories when it comes to skin type. It is important to know where you stand before purchasing your skincare products. Using only suitable skincare products for your type of skin can provide results and a long-lasting glowing complexion. 

    Using a night cream should become an essential part of your beauty ritual after reaching your 30s. The night cream should provide optimal hydration and correct skin imperfections while you sleep. Sounds dreamy, right?

    To choose the best night cream for your skin type, you need to get an idea about what your skin type is:

    Spring Skin Care Tips for Glowing Legs

    Spring is almost upon us! Are you already thinking about the summer wardrobe, all those dresses and skirts you plan to wear? Before going shopping, you might want to consider a spring skincare routine to get glowing legs and feet!

    With a little love and care, your legs will be ready for summer in no time!

    1. Exfoliate with care

    During winter we tend to wear trousers and warm clothes, so the skin accumulates plenty of dead cells that give it an unpleasant texture. This is the reason why spring is the perfect time to gently exfoliate the whole body. A dry brush is an excellent idea if you want to revitalize the skin on the legs. Using the dry brush before your shower for a few weeks can considerably improve the feel of the skin on your legs. More than this, it will help you get rid of the dead cells. While you shower, you can also use a scrub to exfoliate the whole body. This scrub can be using all-natural ingredients that you find around

    Protect your skin against pollution

    Did you know, ground-level ozone generates free radicals and enzymes that compromise the skin's protective barrier? This being said, just a few hours of smog exposure can reduce natural antioxidant Vitamin E in skin by 25% which can cause accelerated ageing among other skin conditions. Pollution from vehicles, pollen, household chemicals and industry have all been linked to skin damage as well as many other health conditions.

    Our daily exposure to these pollutants leads to micro particles becoming lodged in our pores, which creates havoc with our skins natural function including moisture balance, inflammatory response and pigmentation. Dermalogica’s latest innovation is a highly-active resurfacer that delivers your smoothest skin ever, and helps fight the biochemical and environmental triggers known to accelerate skin ageing.
