Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner

Don’t worry, we aren’t suggesting you head out for your Christmas parties or New Year’s Eve drinks make up free, but we are advising you to take that make up off before you go to bed.

While many people think ‘just once’ won’t hurt, at Pure Beauty we are firm believers that the happiest, healthiest skin is skin that is cleansed, toned and moisturised before you go to sleep and when you wake up.

We have had a look at some products that are tough on cleaning away foundation, mascara and eye make-up, but are gentle and loving to your skin at the same time.

Soap free, packed with goodness and suitable for all skin types, is what the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is all about. Balm Mint soothes complexions, as natural Quillaja Saponaria foams away the make up and toxins that can cause problems. With Lavender Extract added into the mix, this is one product we think you will love from the moment you first use it.

If you want to cleanse your skin, remove dead cells and stimulate the cellular renewal process, you need the Decleor Phytopeel Smooth Exfoliating Cream. Perfect for this time of year when we often wear more make-up then usual and have lots of late nights, this soft cream formula is one of the gentlest, most natural ways to renew your skin before you sleep.

If you are tired and have had a long day, the temptation is to skip your toner, but we would urge you to reconsider and think about trying the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner. Extracts of Apricot, Sweet Betty Flower and Quillaja Wood have been blended to create a toner which helps to soothe and harmonise the skin. Free from alcohol and harsh detergents, this toner can applied to the skin with cotton pads and not only does it help maintain natural pH levels but using this can assist the penetration of day and night creams so they are as effective as possible.

Oily skin can really suffer over the festive period, so treat it with the Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel. This deep follicular cleanser leaves oily and problem prone skin feeling super clean and soft from the very first use. While it cannot be used as an eye make-up remover, ongoing use morning and night, helps skin appear less oily, and leaves it with a smoother, more refined texture.

We always suggest adding an eye cream to your routine, especially at night-time when your skin works hard to rejuvenate itself. The Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment targets the fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, leaving you with a more youthful appearance. Padina Pavonica and Blue Flower Linseed have been blended to help tone and firm, while an Amino Acid complex locks moisture into the skin but doesn’t overload it so it looks silky smooth rather than puffy.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch and we would love to help you make the right choice for your skin.
