November & December

Water and moisturiser

As this time of year brings challenges to keeping our skin hydrated, are you applying your moisturiser correctly?

Someone came in and asked me during the past few weeks why their skin did not feel as hydrated as usual and asked if I could help. After questioning their routine, we identified a simple change that fixed the issue. I am to blame for the problem! More specifically my lack of educating (sorry). You see what is obvious to me as a professional may not be to you and I should really take more time to guide you through the steps of your new routine with more detail. As you know, when you buy a product I will talk to you about how to use it, when to use it and what it does. I do need to go the extra step and tell you how it works, which is the missing gap between how to use it and what it does.

Take for example your moisturiser, which is used after your toner. We all know what moisturiser does, don't we? Simply speaking it stops TEWL (transepidermal water loss), this means whatever moisture is on your skin stays on your skin, in addition to the moisture delivered by the moisturiser (and any 'active' ingredients to target specific issues). The toner step is used to prepare your skin. Specifically Dermalogica toners like Multi-Active Toner contain humectants which bind moisture to the skin. Your skin naturally produces humectants like lactic acid, so it is not a 'nasty' extra ingredient, it just helps to support your skins natural barrier functions.

So what have I missed that would help? Water is what. You see to me, based on what my toner and moisturiser do, it is obvious that I need water on my skin. But I may not have explained that to you. So based on what you now know now about your toner (moisture binding) and moisturiser (moisture trapping and delivery), the perfect thing to add would be more water! How do we do this? If you cleanse and exfoliate then go and brush your teeth, make sure when it comes to spraying your toner that your skin is damp. A little splash of water will make all the difference. If you still find that through your day you need a boost, spray your toner over your face for a moisture boost (tip: this also helps to set makeup perfectly).

November

Novembers news, a week early!

Well I didn't want to send out the November news in October, however I received an email this morning which made me think I'd best get my skates on.

If you've already been in this month you will have seen the Dermalogica® gift sets. This morning I received an email from them informing me that the Body Buffing kit is now out of stock. Luckily I had just had a delivery of seven on Tuesday, so I have them left but after that, they are gone. So if you want one they are £15.50 and are worth £36.45, which is probably why everyone went a bit mad for them.   

The other sets are;

Brightening Duo
Full sizes of Daily Microfoliant & Pre Cleanse 150 ml
£53.25
VALUE = £76.10
(Which means you are paying only £11.50 for your Pre Cleanse instead of £34.35)

Power Rescue Masque Trio
Limited edition sizes (38ml) of Charcoal Rescue Masque, Multi Vitamin Power Recovery Masque & Skin Hydrating Masque.
£43.25
VALUE = £59.52
(Which means you are saving 30%)

Skin Perfecting Set
Full sizes of Skin perfect primer 22ml & Overnight Repair Serum 15ml
£67.60
VALUE = £97.20
(Which means you are paying £9.20 instead of £38.80 for your primer.)

And last, but not least, the Clear Start Set
Includes travel sizes of Foaming Wash 50 ml, Daytime treatment 15ml and Overnight Treatment 15ml.
£13.70

 

Now on to (sorry about the next word) Christmas. And the launch of a new treatment.


I really didn't want to type it at this point in the year, but as there are now products selling out that would have formed part of the November/December promotions, we have had to tweak what is being offered. We now have the addition of Dermalogica® skinsolver®, a 10 minute £10 treatment that is perfect for those of you that would like to come in every week! Choose from hydrating Dewy skinsolver® or Flash peel skinsolver®. Now on to promotions that will run between now and Christmas.

The following product promotions are for while stocks last only. If you like the idea of the gift I can put it away now with a small deposit and pay remaining balance before the end of November.

Brightening Duo = Free skinsolver® voucher
Power Rescue Masque Trio = Free skinsolver® voucher
Skin Perfecting set = Free microZone® and touch therapy® voucher
Clear Start set = Free travel bag

Voucher promotions;

This is available from now until 30th November only. The vouchers below will be available for use from January 2017 only (all regular vouchers that you have can still be used as normal);

I'm basically copying Boots! 3 for 2 on all treatments. Pick any 3 and get the cheapest service free. You can even pick 3 the same (handy if you fancy a course). Again, please keep in mind this promotion is only running until the 30th November and the vouchers will only be valid for use from January. There will be another voucher promotion in December, however these will be for treatments/groupings we have selected. 

If you fancy a prize go to the Facebook page and check out the Halloween competition!

See you soon,

Andrew.
