Sensitive Skins

WHAT IS A SENSITIVE SKIN?

Sensitive skin is a common condition and means your skin is more prone to reactions such as redness and itching. Most people who have sensitive skin notice occasional or frequent itching, burning and stinging of patches of skin. Sensitive skin is very treatable and may require a visit to the dermatologist.

SIGNS YOU HAVE A SENSITIVE SKIN

Signs of a sensitive skin come from the breakdown of your skin’s protective barrier. This can be caused by the environment, dehydration, or an underlying condition. Signs include:

•    Rough, flaky patches

•    Rough texture

•    Redness

•    Swelling

•    Peeling skin

Fresh Starts

January is all about Fresh Starts and a great time to assess your Cleansing Routine, the most important start to any skincare regime.

January 2021 saw the launch of the New Clarins Cleansing Range and Clarins have highlighted the range again this January with the Beautiful Cleansing Kits, to not only give you great value but remind us of the importance of a good cleansing routine

Check them out on our online store below …. remember you can take 10% discount from the prices shown, on all full price items 

A perfectly cleansed skin gives the fundamental start to everyone’s skincare routine  

Your Cleansing Routine is the most important part of your skincare routine and is so important to do this properly to avoid common skin care concerns.

A little of the background on how the Clarins Cleansing range began…

In 1967 Jacques Courtin Clarins designed a gentle cleanser containing plant based active ingredients 

Thus was born the Gentle Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs and gentian; active ingredients that are naturally effective and good for the skin 

In 1995, the Clarins laboratories were the first to contribute to the preservation of the skin flora, thanks to an active ingredient bio -ecolia 

In 2001 ,Clarins integrated moringa extract into its cleansers to help eliminate polluting particles .

So the Clarins products are not only high quality but also gentle in order to cleanse the skin without irritating or pulling it

Clarins developed the anti pollution method, the result of its expertise developed in the institute

The method is used in all our Clarins Treatments, and we advise you to use this technique when using the Cleansing range at home yourself.

How to ..

Warm your cleanser in your hands and place the hands starting on the cheeks, forehead, chin and then neck to off load your product. Then repeat the areas, taking the hands off the skin as though the skin is hot to the touch x 3 in each area 

Fast forward to the present day and Clarins now grow all their own plant extracts on a 10 hectare site in the French Alps called the Clarins Domaine

Two organic plant extracts from the Clarins Domain -organic golden gentian and organic lemon balm make up the unique Gentle Complex. Which helps to soothe, calm and soften the skin

Clarins New Toning Lotions and Micellar water 

Clarins have developed the Microbiote Complex to help rebalance the skins microbiotia

When the skin’s micriobitia (skins bacteria to keep it healthy) becomes unbalanced, the skin is more fragile, and the skin becomes tight, redness and imperfections may appear.

Things that can damage this bacteria -aggressing cleansing, stress and harsh products

Clarins Microbiote Complex contains 3 active marine ingredients to help balance the skin and saffron flower polyphenols promote the skin’s natural defences to fight against the imbalance of the skin microbiota and keep the skin healthy and looking and feeling its very best.

So whilst your toner helps to remove every last trace of makeup or the day’s pollution and day products, it’s keeping the skin healthy and balanced -so just as important as your Cleanser
