Have you ever wondered what the difference is between professional-grade skincare and the brands that you buy in a retail store? Well, here’s the answer…
So why do we need a separate product for our eyes? The tissue around our eyes is different. It is more prone to dryness, more fragile, thinner and faster to show the signs of ageing and fatigue. Squinting and general facial movements such as smiling or laughing will also hasten ageing. The eye area, unlike the rest of your face, does not contain oil glands that help to keep the skin moist.This delicate area is easily prone to sensitivity when using regular skin products. Stinging, burning, oedema and milia are all common side effects of using the wrong product around the eyes.
We all love to travel, but unfortunately this can wreak havoc on our skin. Recycled air in a pressurized cabin will leave even the most hydrated skins parched, dull and lifeless. Fluid retention due to an inability to move around can lead to puffy eyes and if that wasn’t enough, increased radiation exposure leads to free radicals attacking your skin.
As well as all of this, stress can lead to an increase the amount of hormone the body releases which may lead to inflammation, redness and acne. Sounds great doesn’t it!!!Read More
Sunblock – which one??
We all know that we need to wear a quality SPF year round to protect us from the harmful effects of UV damage. But which one??? With so much information (and misinformation) on the market, do we choose a physical or a chemical?? SPF 15+, 30+ or 50+???
Hopefully this will help shed some light.
