Are you Jetting off soon?  As you prepare to show more skin, get ready to face the sun’s rays with our top 6 summer skin tips!

 IMG-20180510-WA0006

1. Exfoliate for clearer, smoother skin

What it does: Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturisers.

When: Perform in the mornings prior to toner, moisturiser, SPF and make-up application. Tip: Make-up will last longer on an exfoliated skin!

Don’t forget: After you exfoliate, follow with a hydrating body cream to seal in moisture, and always shield freshly exfoliated skin with an SPF (as recommended by the FDA). Recommended: Daily Microfoliant®Exfoliating Body ScrubBody Hydrating Cream.

 

 2. Keep skin hydrated

How: Up your regimen’s level of hydration with intensive masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturiser. Toners are a refreshing moisturiser prep, working to even out skin porosity. Tip: Refresh with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, on the plane!

Recommended:  Antioxidant HydraMistSkin Hydrating BoosterSkin Hydrating Masque.

3. Make friends with H20

IMG-20180510-WA0005

Why: Higher temperatures and more time outdoors leads to internal dehydration, which can result in headaches and dizzy spells!

What you can do: Eight 8-ounce glasses of plain, filtered water every day help maintain critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. Tip: If you drink caffeinated beverages, you must triple the amount of water you drink!

Recommended:  Plain and pure water!

IMG-20180510-WA0003When in doubt, apply (and reapply!)

Why:  It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen.: you must apply enough, and apply frequently.   Studies indicate that most people do not apply nearly as much daylight protection as they should.

How much: A teaspoon for the face. For the body, about as much as would fill a shot glass.

How often: Re-apply every two hours. Tip: Stay out of the midday sun from mid-morning to late afternoon whenever you can.

IMG-20180510-WA0004Bonus: Today’s sophisticated formulas and technology let you select sun protection that works with your skin condition. That means you can choose oil-free, mattifying formulas, extra emollient formulas for dry skin, or chemical free formulas for sensitised, reactive skin.

Mothers Day 11th march

mothers dayMothers Day Sunday 11th March, the most important day of the year.

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.  The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.  St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine.  Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died.

Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world” 

 

In 1908, the US Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother’s Day an official holiday, joking that they would also have to proclaim a “Mother-in-law’s Day”.  However, owing to the efforts of Anna Jarvis, by 1911 all US states observed the holiday,  with some of them officially recognizing Mother’s Day as a local holiday, the first being West Virginia, Jarvis’ home state, in 1910. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

Although Jarvis was successful in founding Mother’s Day, she became resentful of the commercialization of the holiday. By the early gift mother1920s, Hallmark Cards and other companies had started selling Mother’s Day cards. Jarvis believed that the companies had misinterpreted and exploited the idea of Mother’s Day, and that the emphasis of the holiday was on sentiment, not profit. As a result, she organized boycotts of Mother’s Day, and threatened to issue lawsuits against the companies involved.  Jarvis argued that people should appreciate and honor their mothers through handwritten letters expressing their love and gratitude, instead of buying gifts and pre-made cards.   Jarvis protested at a candy makers’ convention in Philadelphia in 1923, and at a meeting of American War Mothers in 1925. By this time, carnations had become associated with Mother’s Day, and the selling of carnations by the American War Mothers to raise money angered Jarvis, who was arrested for disturbing the peace.

While the United States holiday was adopted by some other countries, existing celebrations, held on different dates, honouring motherhood have become described as “Mother’s Day”, such as Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom.

To celebrate I am offering a unique package for all Mothers. Treat yourself, a friend, granny or hint very loudly to your nearest and dearest – All Mothers really do deserve to be spoilt. – Back, neck and shoulder massage Pro30  Dermalogica Skin treatment, Indian Head massage or hand massage

All for a fabulous £50.00.  I have very special gift voucher boxes which make a lovely present, including a Free Dermalogica Calm Water Gel inside.

I can post out direct or you can collect Treatment package can be taken throughout March and April.

Don’t miss out on this beautiful gift.

Dermalogica 31 Day Skin Fitness Challenge

31 dayDermalogica during January 2018 decided to send out a 31 day Skin Fitness Plan, so I thought I would share them with you.  In case you didn’t catch them on my Facebook page, here are they are:

Day 1 – Time for tea? Did you know jasmine tea can actually help eczema and acne by balancing oil production? Matcha tea, along with its general health-boosting benefits, is also great for detoxifying the skin.

Day 2 – In Chinese diagnosis, eye bags and dark circles may mean your kidneys are working overtime. Up your fluids to flush out those toxins and slather on Stress + Eye Masque before bed to revitalise eyes overnight.

Day 3 – Schedule in a date night with your skin. Use this time to exfoliate and masque while you meditate and reflect on your day … or watch a box set!

Day 4 – The benefits of a cold shower are endless! Try a couple of cold water blasts this morning to boost your immune system and reduce stress levels. Let us know how you felt afterwards!

 

Day 5 – Show us your masque-ie! Apply a masque to nourish, hydrate, detoxify and help treat your skin!

Day 6 – Change your pillowcase often. This will keep breakout causing bacteria from building up while you sleep. Add a couple of drops of lavender oil for guaranteed

Day 7 – Your skin is unique, so let’s treat it that way. Come in for a free Face Mapping® and together, we can create a skin fitness plan personalised just for you.

Day 13 – Think of something embarrassing. Do you feel your skin going a little pinker? Our skin and thoughts are closely connected and when we’re stressed it affects our skin’s ability to regenerate.  Try practising a few minutes of mindfulness every day.

Day 14 – Make sure you cleanse your skin well after you hit the gym. As we sweat our pores enlarge making our skin more susceptible to dirt and oil build-up. Our travel size products are great to keep in your gym bag!

productsDay 19 – This time of year can leave our skin feeling red and sensitive. Our new UltraCalming™ range is powerfully soothing. Perfect to protect you during those bracing winter walks.

Day 20 – Sunlight promotes the production of Vitamin D – which contributes to skin cell growth, repair and metabolism. 10 to 15 minutes in the early morning is the best time to get it
