Ok so just recently during our consultations I have had a client tell me they are happy with their current products and then go on to explain - I use this serum because it has lemon grass in it, I use this toner as its all natural, I use this eye cream as its organic and love my moisturiser because I have always used it!!! BUT they want ME to do an anti ageing treatment!

Noooo c'mon guys we are not miracle workers why would you choose to use such a mish match of products, why would you assume the moisturiser you have been using since you you were a teenager is still doing what you want it to do, I mean your skin is no longer that of a teenager???Ok so just recently during our consultations I have had a client tell me they are happy with their current products and then go on to explain - I use this serum because it has lemon grass in it, I use this toner as its all natural, I use this eye cream as its organic and love my moisturiser because I have always used it!!!

So if something is working “Why change it”? Is usually what I ask, however my rep gave me a sample of the latest from the Ultra Calming Range the all new Redness Relief Primer!

RednessrRelief-Flier-Small

First thing I noticed is the increase in SpF from 15-20, all good as the Sun is a killer for anyone with redness to their skin or suffer from Rosacea, sun sensitivity.

So what’s it all about?? Comes in a  slim tube with the needle nose tip contains a translucent primer that’s tinted with natural green botanical extracts that treats the skin, counteracts redness, balances skin tone and as an added bonus primes the skin for makeup -all good!

This primer feels amazingly soothing on the skin, thanks in part to Oat Extracts and Oat Kernel Oil, and Dermalogica’s  “UltraCalming™ Complex.”  to calm and heal the skin, it does contain silicones which most primers do and this will help with the silky feel to it, there are no artificial fragrances, colors or parabens, and of course, it’s cruelty free.

Apart from how it feels on the skin, I actually like the greet tint, which tones down redness (remember  the colour wheel at school green counteracts red). The pale green tint is very sheer, once Iapplied the primer onto the skin it disappears just enough to tone down your redness, you can apply with finger tips or a sponge, however I prefer a brush as you lose less product.

Product comes with a plastic slide, how very ingenious is this? Just squeeze it on to the bottom of the tube and it squeezes every last drop of product out for you., amazing!

Will it take away redness – I doubt it but it does tone the skin down very well, has good coverage and feels great. I believe this will turn out to be one of their “HERO” products..

22ml RRP £38.40

1. Protection, Protection, Protection

faceBecoming sun-wise by using a broad spectrum sun protection cream and staying out of the Sun between 12-3pm, protect against UVA & UVB, UVA Rays age & UVB Rays burn.

Remember the higher the SPF the higher the chemicals, look out for Titanium Dioxide a natural ingredient & remember to re-apply.

2. Don't Worry Be Happy

Happy people already believe they look good, so with a strong self-esteem & high energy levels & free from anxiety. Stress & anxiety cause free radical damage and restricted blood flow and oxygen to the cells. Exercise such as dancing, walking & yoga can help.

3. Where There is Smoke...There is wrinkles

Smoking robs the skin of oxygen and vital Vitamin C, doubling the rate at which your skin ages, leading to those horrible smokers lines & sallow skin.

4. Sleep Well

faceturbanSleep is the foundation of our wellbeing. Human growth hormone is released to revitalise your body and regenerate cells. The way you sleep also determines your wrinkles ie do you favour one side? If so you will have more wrinkles on that side. Broken sleep also leads to dark circles under the eyes

5. Your Skin is what you eat!

Eating the right foods gives the skin the nutrients it needs to be brighter, smoother & healthier with less wrinkles. Foods like anti-oxidant rich berries, broccoli, dark greens, natural oatmeal, salmon (full of essential fatty acids). We call these water rich foods, drinking water or herbal teas top these up. This is a great two pronged attack, your diet works on the inside and your skin creams work topically.
