Introducing BioLumin-C Serum - Available from 14th June
If you are skin care obsessed you will already know that Vitamin C is an amazing ingredient. You will also know that not all Vitamin C products are created equally. In fact some can be so unstable that by the time they reach your skin they are no longer effective.
Dermalogica introduce an ultra stable Vitamin C complex in BioLumin-C Serum. So what makes it so great?
Well I'm going to give you a quick set of questions and answers and a longer explanation so if you get bored you know the main points and don't have to say tl;dr!
In today’s world, skin damage is a daily reality. Vitamin C can help fight the stressors that cause damage – and BioLumin-C Serum represents a new generation of Vitamin C products.
A high-performance serum that works with skin’s own defences for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin.
Advanced bio-technology fuses ultra-stable Vitamin C with Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, which works along with an AHA to fight oxidative stress and the appearance of ageing.
Relevant to me?
Suitable for all skin types, especially good for those of you in your 20's looking to prevent future damage and also great for those of you who can't quite remember being in your 20's as it will help with pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles!
RRP is £81.50, your price is £67.83 with free mini products.
The first eight people to pre-order will also receive a trial size, which can be used first and if you decide it is not for you, simply return the unopened full size product for a refund.
BioLumin-C uses new technology and research to fully harness the power of Vitamin C by combining two highly stable forms of synthetic Vitamin C (Ascorbosilane SP and K3 Vita C) along with other ingredients like Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, which is a unique short-chain synthetic peptide that works using innovative anti-wrinkle technology.
Another key ingredient is Lactic Acid, this Alpha Hydroxy Acid’s chief benefit is exfoliation. It helps remove dull, dead cells from skin’s outermost layers. This accelerates cell turnover, revealing smoother, brighter skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles and helps further increase product penetration.
Next up is Salvia Hispanica Oil (Chia Seed) which is rich in antioxidants that help quench free radicals, and it contains more than 60% omega-3 fatty acid – one of the highest concentrations of any plant source.
Then we need to talk about the bioavailability. BioLumin-C Serum’s advanced technology delivers more Vitamin C into the skin – which means that more Vitamin C is bioavailable to protect and defend skin.
This superior formula outperforms other Vitamin C products (including those formulated at higher concentrations). When tested against two leading Vitamin C products, BioLumin-C had higher Vitamin C intensity as it penetrated deeper into the stratum corneum.
If you are already a Vitamin C fan and are worried about oxidation, fear not! The Vitamin C complex within BioLumin-C is highly stable and formulated to minimise oxidation and Vitamin C degradation.
All in all it's bloody fab! Those of you who were upset to see MAP-15 go, now you know why. If you would like to pre-order please message me, as stated before the first eight people to do so will also recieve a trial size bottle.
If you don't currently use any products from the Dermalogica range or just want to have a chat about starting to look after your skin better please book in for a free consultation on www.bookarh.com
See you soon,
Pleased to share that today I became accredited by MASCED.UK a programme developed to raise awareness of skin cancer across the health, beauty and hairdressing industry.
While we in these industries are not medical professionals who can diagnose, we still see your skin and areas you may not even notice often. This gives us the opportunity to let you know if something looks like it needs checking out by your doctor.
Let your hairdresser or therapist know about this too!

Summer holidays on the way, where are you going?
Wherever you are going, make sure you are not neglecting your skin. Not looking after it for a couple of weeks can't be undone instantly, so I'm telling you now meaning I can say "told you so" in a few weeks. Don't make me say it!
Travel knowing your skin is covered. Purchase your regular moisturiser* and two travel sizes, and get a free Dermalogica® tote bag and travel size Power Cleanse Duo (Pre Cleanse & Daily Microfoliant) worth £34.
Get the Travel Essentials Kit containing award winning Conditioning Body Wash, Body Hydrating Cream along with Daily Cleansing Shampoo and Daily Conditioning Rinse for £30 (normally £37), which will count as your two travel sizes if you don't need the other travel size skin products. BTW you have to come and smell these four, they are on the tester stand, so make sure to have a look next time you are in.
Don't like greasy sun creams that give you spots? Neither do I, which is why I have plenty of samples of Protection 50 Sport SPF50. It is a broad spectrum (UVA & UVB) lightweight and water resistant SPF, which as the name suggests makes it great for sport but also for when you need to know your skin is adequately protected. Try before you buy with a sample and invest in the best sunscreen you will ever own for £32.50.
Heads up for June, where you can book your personalised holiday skin microZone® treatment for £20. Protocols have been specifically designed for whatever your holiday destination, making sure your skin doesn't need a holiday after you've had yours. And while we are on the subject of travel...
Barrier Repair from the UltraCalming® range is the perfect insulator for your skin on a flight, making sure your skins TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss in case you want to know for future reference. It may also pop up in a quiz!) is kept to a minimum, and perfect for whatever destination as it can also help protect your skin from wind burn if you are off skiing.
Diversion of products
Currently there is a massive upswing of fake and diverted products flooding the market. Dermalogica® have now started implementing new tracking procedures (Overnight Retinol Repair 1% is the first to have them), this will hopefully see an end to diversion on the level that it is currently.
Diversion, if you are not aware is stores (like T.K. Maxx) obtaining professional salon brands from people who hold genuine accounts with companies like Dermalogica®, Elemis, Tigi, O.P.I. etc. and selling them on. Perfectly acceptable you might think. The problem with this is some products have a 'use by' date. In a salon we are aware of how long stock has been on a shelf, and if it is out of date or about to be unusable within a couple of months and we send it back and get the product replaced with a fresh one. Those selling to stores are most likely not really bothered as there is no motivation for them to go to that kind of trouble. Then there is the issue of storage. I do not have a warehouse which flips up and down into high and low temperatures, whereas these stores can do. The environment the products are kept in can have an effect on the stability of the product. There are places like John Lewis (an authorised stockist) that have Dermalogica® staff in them who can make sure the products are stored correctly, and more importantly professionally prescribed. If you look on your products packaging, most do say the are guaranteed when professionally recommended. Meaning if you have bought them without being checked by a professional for any potential allergies or risk of aggravation of a condition, then it is buyer beware and you have no legal recourse with these stores.
Fake products are another issue. When any brand becomes popular, there is always a fake following not too far behind. With this it is a simple matter of you not knowing what is going on your face.
How do we fix the problem? Stop buying online and start buying from a local authorised stockist. I know sometimes the online thing can be a draw to save a few quid, which is why from 13//05/2017 a price match guarantee will cover all Dermalogica® products sold through authorised retailers found here: http://www.dermalogica.co.uk/uk/about/authorised_retailers.html and I will also price match www.johnlewis.com this is up to you to point out when you come in and I can check on the day (I don't have time to check them all daily as I don't have the resources of John Lewis!). As an added note, the free treatments with spend levels is still in place, which you do not get online and also certain freebies like above will remain exclusive to treatment providers.
As always T&C's apply and promotions are limited to available stock, so if you want anything that is free or reduced in price be quick. Book your next appointment now on: www.bookarh.com
See you soon,
