Solve Your Skincare Woes With These Amazing Products

Hey Lovelies!

Solve your skincare woes with these amazing products and get summer dress-ready.

Yes, we are all different – but there are some things we all have in common – skincare issues. At some point or another we all will experience the following concerns. Luckily the beauty industry has our back. Check out these amazing products guaranteed to eradicate those skincare woes for good.

1.Problem: Pink Arm Bumps (Official Term, Keratosis Pilaris).

Solution: First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub 10% AHA, $26, www.firstaidbeauty.com

What the HELL are these unforgiving spot-like bumps that seem to have taken permanent residence on my arms? Otherwise known as keratosis pilaris, this unsightly and rather annoying condition is caused simply by a build-up of protein (keratin). Those with dry skin tend to be more susceptible (another reason for reaching for that glass of water). Although you can never fully rid yourself of them, you can go a long way to alleviating the situation. Check out the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser. Formulated with glycolic and lactic acids, with some fragments of pumice stone thrown in, this new product gently yet effectively deals with pores, loosens and removes the problematic top layer of skin; thus, revealing smoother and bump-free arms in time for summer.

 

  1. Problem: Dehydrated/Dry Skin

Solution: Institut Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serim £49.50 (30ml), www.facethefuture.co.uk

Should you suffer from severely dehydrated or dry skin you are probably a tad concerned about the heatwave forecasted for these coming weeks. Fear not friends, for Esthederm’s Intensive Hyaluronic Acid Serum will literally work big miracles. I was given this serum to review some time ago and I have never looked back. Formulated with 3 different types of hyaluronic acid and cellular water, this serum repairs the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It also replaces optimal moisture in the layers of skin, thus fully rehydrating even the driest of skin. Think oasis in a desert. The result is not only healthy-looking hydrated skin, but also a firmer, smoother and much rejuvenated complexion you will adore.

3.Problem: Spider Veins:

Solution: SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair, £59.95,

www.radianceskincare.co.uk

Home Remedy: Apple Cider Vinegar and Vitamin C Products

Okay, when I first noticed (in horror) this red thng on my leg and realised it wasn’t a pen mark that wouldn’t rub off I totally freaked out. Apparently twice as many women than men are affected (obviously) and they can be caused by standing for long periods (such is a woman’s life)), water retention and blood problems, which leads to weakened veins. Hey presto, spider legs. Discovering that the treatment is generally medical or surgical – and yep, you guessed it, is mind-blowingly expensive too. However, all is not lost.

One of my fave skincare brands, SkinCeuticals provide an aid for such dreaded woes. Should you discover your skin has been compromised, tackle it with their awesome formula that combines both beta glutin and centella asiatica. These ingredients work in unison to trigger the repair of the skin’s barrier, so it can go right ahead healing, protecting and making you feel amazing!

Alternatively, apple cider vinegar has been shown to greatly improve this concern. The natural cleanser will improve circulation helping to prevent further damage.

Furthermore, any vitamin C serums (or even some chopped parsley in essential oils), when applied will give your collagen production a super-boost, offer exceptional antioxidant benefits and greatly support cell repair.

4.Problem: Pigmentation

Solution: Neostrata Enlighten Pigment Controller, £49.95, www.facethefuture.co.uk

I tested this product (with some reservation) some time ago and I can say whole heartedly, that the treatment delivers amazing results. You can actually see it working within minutes of application. For this I will use my phrase I keep for products that continually astound me (of which several well-known magazines are also now coining) THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE!

Containing key ingredients proven to achieve effective results, including:

Neoglucosamine

Retinol

Skin Brightening Plant Extracts

Vitamin C

Turmeric Sourced Antioxidant

This product both addresses the cause of uneven pigmentation whilst treating the discoloration. Expect a seriously gorgeous and luminous complexion, all ready for summer.
