3 RULES FOR PERFECT SUMMER SKIN & BODY

25 May 2018 17:26

Posted in: Skin Health, How-To

 

After hibernating all winter wrapped up in layers and blasting dehydrating central heating, switching to our summer clothes can be daunting. Among other things (guilty of skipping on gym when it's too dark and cold!) we tend to neglect the skin on our bodies during the colder months. Don't worry, we’ve rounded up key tips to help get your skin looking its healthy glowing best, so you can flaunt your gorgeous summer dresses confidently!

1. EXFOLIATE REGULARLY 

Our skin sheds cells every minute of every day - which results in dull, dry looking skin, particularly sun exposed skin as it dehydrates quickly. However much moisturiser you apply our skin will never look glowing without removing these dead skin cells. Rejuvenation treatments, such as exfoliations and nurturing masks, restore the skin’s health and balance. To ensure a healthy glow for the summer months be sure to exfoliate 1–2 times a week. OSKIA’s Micro-Exfoliating Balm contains the finest silica and MSM granules, which dissolve on contact with water forming an anti-inflammatory milk to buff away tired cells and stimulate regeneration. As a creamy, nutrient-rich balm that will leave skin feeling super, super soft and smooth.

2. BODY CREAMS WITH ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS

After exfoliating and buffing away dead skin cells your skin is perfectly prepped for a surge of hydration, which will add luminosity to your skin and improve overall skin tone. We recommend using a body cream that contains AHA’s like our Renaissance Hand & Body Cream. Deliciously scented with Rose and Camomile, it contains gently exfoliating natural AHA’s from Lemon, Grape and Pineapple that benefit all ageing concerns whilst removing dull, dry skin cells.

3. FOCUS ON TARGETING PROBLEM AREAS

Keratosis Pilaris

If you suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (those annoying little red bumps on the back of your upper arms) then it’s likely you’ll want to rid these before exposing bare arms this summer. Whilst there is no definitive cure for this condition (unfortunately it's a very common genetic follicular condition which causes an excess of Keratin production that accumulates within the hair follicles forming numerous tiny rough bumps on the skin and commonly found in people with very dry skin and/or a vitamin A deficiency), daily exfoliating or using a good natural body brush and moisturising with a vitamin and AHA rich cream, such as our Renaissance Hand & Body Cream, can definitely ease these bumps while smoothing and brightening the skin on your arms.

Sporadic Body Acne
Just as people struggle with acne on their face, many people also battle acne on other areas of the body - such as their chest and back. You should treat these areas just as you would treat a breakout on your face, do not pick or squeeze and make sure to exfoliate. Try avoiding body and facial scrubs with coarse granules as they can scratch delicate, sun exposed skin. We recommend our Renaissance Mask for breakout prone skin. It deeply cleanses, reduces blockages and spot formation, whilst boosting skin radiance and luminosity.

Ingrown Hair
If you wax or shave you will be well aware of the bane of ingrown hairs. Ingrown hair are usually hairs that have grown out of the skin, curled back round and re-entered the skin, they can occur when the hair follicle becomes clogged with dead skin cells, forcing the hair to grow sideways. Our Renaissance Hand and Body Lotion is the perfect remedy as it will aid the skin's natural exfoliation process to keep those pesky ingrown hairs at bay.

How to choose the right cleanser for you.

19 April 2018 15:52

Posted in: Skin Health, How-to

 

In a market flooded with different products, it can sometimes seem daunting finding the right one to suit your skin and treat its needs. Proper cleansing is paramount for a clear, glowing complexion. Not only does it remove oil, bad bacteria, makeup and dead skin, it also creates a blank canvas for your serums, moisturisers and oils to help them penetrate deeper into the epidermis and increasing their efficacy. Not cleansing effectively leads to dullness, breakouts and possibly dehydration. It’s no wonder cleansing is the first and usually the most important step in your routine. Ideally, we recommend cleansing twice a day. Double cleansing at night is vital to remove the upper layer of makeup, dead skin cells and grime, allowing a second cleanse to give a far deeper clean, unclogging your pores and clearing your complexion. Just as it is important to cleanse at night, so is cleansing in the morning. At night our skin regenerates and detoxifies, releasing toxins from our pores which then need to be washed away in the morning.

ACNE PRONE SKINS/ OILY SKIN
If your skin is prone to breaking out you want a cleanser that helps to fight excess oil, without completely stripping your skin of oil which will lead to your skin producing excess sebum to compensate. A formula that balances your skin’s natural PH will help slow the growth of bacteria, containing oil dissolving AHA and niacinamide. Try our CityLife cleanser it leaves skin pollutant and makeup free, fresh, calm and pH balanced. It contains Willow Bark Extract (natural Salicylic Acid) & Phytic Acid, which gently exfoliate to rid dead cells and clear pores, whilst Eucalyptus and Lavender are both tremendously healing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial.

SENSETIVE SKINS
For those with sensitive skin, or skin conditions such a rosacea, you need a balm cleanser that will effectively remove all dirt and grime and condition your skin without stripping it of its natural lipid barrier or acid mantel. Just as with acneic skin, it is also important with sensitive skin not to upset your skin’s natural PH. Use PH appropriate products, within 1pH difference to the skin’s natural level (4.4-6ph), as disrupting your skin’s PH can lead to dry or irritated skin. Our Perfect Cleanser is a nourishing cleansing balm, rich in youth-boosting vitamins, minerals, prebiotics, essential fatty acids and natural emollients to deeply cleanse, decongest, soothe and restore moisture levels. A bio-available Zinc-Glycine Mineral Complex purifies, supports healing, soothes irritation and reduces redness.

COMBINATION SKIN
Combination skin is exactly what it says on the tin: you have both dry and oily sections or patches, or your skin can simply change during the month and seasons! This means you need a cleanser to treat both skin types and restore balance. A gel cleanser is perfect for combination skin. It is the new generation of non-foaming cleanser, and somewhat a hybrid, gentle enough to treat dry skin, but effective enough to remove excess oil and take the day off from your skin. Our best-selling Renaissance Cleanser contains Lactobacillus/Cucurbita Pepo Ferment Extract (Fermented Pumpkin Enzymes) to deeply cleanse pores and thoroughly remove dull skin cells without irritation for a brighter, balanced complexion and even skin tone.

DRY SKIN
Much like sensitive skin, dry skin needs to be treated just as gently when it come to cleansers. Stay clear of foaming cleansers and instead opt for cleansers with a richer texture: think oilier balms and gels. They will slick away the grime of day, but also nourish your skin before you start applying your serums and moistures. Our Perfect Cleanser and Renaissance Cleansing Gel are both perfect textures for you, they rid your skin of makeup and deeply cleanse as well as thoroughly removing dead skin cells without irritation for a healthy, comfortable and balanced complexion. You can switch between the two depending on seasons, morning and evening or even double cleanse if feeling your skin needs that bit of extra TLC.
