With the most romantic day of the year almost upon us, Beautician Aislinn from Pastels Jumeirah shares her tips on how you can look your most alluring!
“When it comes to our skin, we all want to have it bright, glowing and radiant, but how to we get this?
Aside from using products with active ingredients such as Vitamin C for brightening and AHA or Glycolic for exfoliating, don’t forget your lifestyle, stress levels, sleep patterns and diet all have a big impact on the glow and purity of your skin. A healthy day moisturizer and a good night creme will seriously hydrate and restore dehydrated skin and a weekly masque suited to your skin type is also highly recommended.
Dull skin is usually due to the fact that we have dead skin cells layered on top, and they need to be removed by exfoliating with an AHA or a light soft scrub. The rice powder strawberry rhubarb dermafoliant from Eminence or the green tea gommage biologique from Guinot are brilliant exfoliators. Be careful in your choice of exfoliator because bigger micro beads in some scrubs can give little tears in thin sensitive delicate skin so always ask your skincare specialist to recommend the best one for you!
Another reason for dull skin is poor circulation and so to improve blood circulation our collagen boost massage facial is a terrific option!
Dry skin is usually due to damage, and not always a lack of moisture. The main damage is done by the sun and that is why it is so important to wear an SPF 365 days a year. It is also important to avoid certain products such as those containing alcohol as well as saunas and steam rooms if you have dry skin as they will make it worse!
Finally, to really give dry skin radiance, nothing beats a facial oil!”
