Mum’s the Word for Caroline Purdy at Beauty Culture, Belfast

by • February 15, 2016 • Health & WellbeingComments (0)2036

As a mum to a toddler I know how busy life can be with the juggling of everyday tasks, keeping focus in work, being a wife and trying to stay healthy. We tend to be more anxious and finding time for ‘me time’ can be difficult leading to feeling more stressed and heightened anxiety levels.

As a Skincare Therapist I know that when you are stressed your adrenal glands start to play havoc with your skin. Stress can show on your skin in many ways including breakouts, puffy eyes, redness, irritation and premature ageing. Making time to look after your skin is not a luxury it is an investment.

At home running a bath and adding Dermalogica Hydro-active Mineral Salts is a great way to relax and treat the skin at the same time as this product both relaxes and exfoliates. An aromatic, stress reducing bath soak, containing ingredients such as naturally warming ginger and cinnamon to help ease the body into deep relaxation. Sea salts and Seaweed (Kelp) combine with enzymes and soothing essential oils such as lavender and sandalwood will leave your skin smooth.

The delicate skin on our hands needs extra attention and is one of the areas that will show the first signs of ageing. I would highly recommend applying Dermalogica Multi vitamin hand and nail treatment cream especially at night to repair and condition the skin while you are sleeping. An intense, non-greasy treatment of botanicals and vitamins to protect and repair chapped hands while strengthening nails against splitting and peeling. Contains no artificial fragrance or colour and is available in full and mini sizes, so you can pop it into your handbag for the daytime too.

In the salon we would recommend having the Lava Shell Back Treatment as a fantastic way of relaxing. These self-warming shells are used to massage the oils into your skin and the heat of the shells is also particularly good for relieving any aches, pains and muscle tension.

Guinot’s Age Summum Facial treatment is also a great way to relax and unwind. The word ‘Summum’ in latin means the highest one can achieve. This facial will visibly reduce the signs of ageing with its deep exfoliation followed by a bespoke Vitamin C massage and pro-collagen mask. Total relaxation for 50 minutes as well as having fabulous results. After a course of three treatments the skin on average is 43% firmer and a 50% decrease in wrinkle depth.

Gift cards for any amount are available to purchase for Mother’s Day from Beauty Culture, an ideal way to say thank you to the special women in our lives.
