Why a skincare routine

Why have a skincare routine? At the end of each day, you’re tired and just want to crawl into bed. But wait!! Spending just 5 minutes on your skin will make a difference – say goodbye to dehydrated, tight skin; say goodbye to congested skin; say goodbye to dull skin! Say hello to happy, balanced, hydrated skin.

Step 1: Cleanse – remove makeup & the remains of the day (pollution, dirt, grime, perspiration). These are all factors in making your skin look dull and can lead to congestion and breakouts.

Step 2: Tone – completes the cleansing process, hydrates and refreshes the skin.

Step 3: Moisturise – hydrates, nourishes and balances the skin.

Step 4: Exfoliation – done weekly – this helps to remove dead skin cells leaving your skin glowing & radiant. Makeup goes on like a dream.

Our product of the week will help you start an easy and beneficial skincare routine!

The Beauty of Skincare and Makeup

The Beauty of Skincare and Makeup

This time of the year is HARSH on our skin. Cold windy days, indoor heating, warm days (?!), dehydration, extra makeup, too tired to remove the makeup, late nights, stress, hormones, nutrition or lack thereof. . it takes a toll on our bodies. The first place this shows is on our lovely faces.

There are simple solutions to hide what’s happening, but you have to treat the cause not only the effect. As you can see, I’m tired & dehydrated.

The Jane Iredale mineral makeup range is a natural, gentle way to camouflage this. Yay! Jane Iredale offers a number of foundations, including their hyaluronic acid rich liquid minerals to help restore the look of radiance by plumping and hydrating the skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and evening out skin tone.

To really help rejuvenate the skin, facials are an integral part of an effective skincare routine. Products you use at home help to support the deeper work of a facial and give you longer lasting benefits.

The picture on the left is from yesterday, the one on the right is from today after a facial. The texture of my skin is much softer and smoother, the colouring is even and the redness reduced. Plus, I feel much more relaxed.

While makeup and facials help to keep us looking our best during this time of the year, don’t forget we still have to eat well, drink plenty of water and get our sleep! It’s tough to find the balance so do the best you can. Be kind to yourself.

If you’d like to come in for a Jane Iredale consultation and foundation colour match or book your own facial, please get in touch! You’ll feel much better – I know I did!

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid

In the world of skincare and beauty, we hear so much about hyaluronic acid. What is it? Do we need it? What’s it in? Is it all just marketing hype?

As Natural Health Magazine describes, hyaluronic acid is “your body’s own hydrating molecule, often referred to as nature’s moisturiser and it can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Great! The bad news? Like collagen, our natural levels deplete as we age.” water

One of the easiest ways to temporarily boost our levels is with good quality skincare and makeup products. For example, the Jane Iredale liquid mineral foundation contains this ingredient which will help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Jane Iredale Nautilus Dublin Spring 2016

The Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Firming Mask also contains this wonder ingredient. This is a firming, soothing mask that helps to rejuvenate the skin. I LOVE using it in our Nautilus Dublin facials!

Do you look for products containing hyaluronic acid?  Have you seen positive results? I’ve been using the Jane Iredale liquid mineral foundation since January. I find that the texture of my skin is smoother, the fine laughter lines around my eyes (sun damage!) don’t seem as noticeable, and overall I’m very happy with the results!
