beauty hacksDo you ever get that thing where you have a beauty problem but don’t have the specific product to hand? We’ve had this happen to us a bunch of times and although it’s quick and easy to order from the Pure Beauty site, sometimes life just can’t wait! We take a look at some common beauty issues and some of the products you could us in the meantime.

Frizzy Hair

With the weather as hot and humid as is has been lately, very few of us are lucky enough to completely avoid the frizz, which means waking up and realising you’ve run out of hair serum can be a real nightmare. We don’t recommend it as a permanent solution, but rubbing a SINGLE drop of Decleor Rose D’Orient Soothing Oil Serum between your palms and smoothing your hair down after drying and styling can help to prevent your hair from going completely wild.


Obviously, aftersun is what you want if you’ve been daft enough to get burnt in the sun, but if you don’t have any to hand then something like Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream is perfect. It’s specially formulated for sensitised skin and will help to hydrate and repair hot, damaged skin really well.


Shaving is a must for most of us when it’s still leg-baring weather but running out of shaving foam can put a dampner on things. Dry shaving is a BAD idea as it can cause shaving rash, ingrown hairs and increased risk of cuts, but there is an alternative – conditioner! Using hair conditioner will soften the hair in preparation for being chopped, as well as providing a silky later for the razor to glide over.

Smelly Feet

Smelly feet and smelly armpits more or less occur in the same way; the body sweats, the sweat contains bacteria which decomposes and starts to produce an odour. Therefore, if you sometimes suffer with sweaty feet but need to keep your plates dry and fresh, using a little deodorant could help. Dermalogica Environmental Control Deodorant uses coriander, parsley, clove and hyssop neutralises odour, while other ingredients inhibit odour-causing bacteria.

Dirty Make Up Brushes

Keeping your make-up brushes clean is so important because dirty brushes can harbour all sorts of bacteria which can result in infections and skin issues. It seems like a no-brainer, but the best thing to get make-up off of your brushes is make up remover, so giving them all a soak and clean up with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is the best way to ensure your brushes aren’t hiding any nasties.
