NEW Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel

Here at Millies we’ve literally been counting down the minutes to the launch of Age Smart Rapid Reveal Peel. I was very lucky to get a sneak peak of the Dermalogica new launches for the year in January and this was my stand out launch of the year so I was bursting to try it.   First Impressions  First of all – how it is packaged is genius. I love how the pack has a suction cup on the back of the pack to attach it to your bathroom mirror. When we’re all so busy, actually remembering to do things is one...

AHAs and BHAs in our Routines

What are AHA’s & BHA’s? AHA’s (Alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA’s (beta hydroxy acids) both smooth the outer surface and speed up the cell turnover of your skin, which slows down with age. AHAs (also called glycolic or lactic acids) are water-soluble and come from fruit and milk sugars; BHAs, such as salicylic acid, are oil-soluble, so they help to clean out clogged pores.  Why do we need AHA’s and BHA’s in our skin care routine? The bonds that hold onto the layer of dead skin on your face are essentially dissolved with the use of AHAs, therefore bringing new...

Antioxidants

Antioxidants vs Free radicals We hear a lot about free radical damage causing the skin to sag, wrinkle, lose its elasticity and appear patchy and age spotted eventually. How does it happen? First of all, let me explain what free radicals are. A bit of a chemistry lesson so. A free radical is any atom or molecule that is missing an electron in its outer shell. This free radical will do everything to attack and destroy other healthy atoms to get the electron that it’s missing. These free radicals accumulate in our skin and cause a lot of damage, such...

The Importance of SPF

Sadly, according to recent studies, only less than 15% of the world population uses sunscreen ever. Feeling proud? Yes, to some extent. But raise your hands, who uses their sunscreen according to what is written below. We tend to apply it once in the morning and forget about it till the next day. Same applies to winter, people think they don’t need it if it’s “dark” most of the time. It’s scary, but “if there is enough light to stimulate the retina, there's enough light to stimulate melanocytes and ageing factors in the skin.” So it’s not just day light, it’s light that...

Pigmentation

It’s a very complex subject, but you need to understand the enemy in order to fight it, so let me put it into as simple terms as I possibly can for you. There are a few factors that participate in changes that happen in our skin. To give you an example – the famous collagen and elastin are proteins that stand for skin firmness and texture,while melanin is the substance responsible for the colour in our skin. All of the above participants can get in trouble when affected by diet, age, sun exposure, hormones, medication and/or inappropriate skincare products and...

Take the Long Route to Ageing - Part 1

Skin ageing is a natural but inevitable process that, unfortunately, we can’t stop. With time, we all get more and more visible lines, that become even more prominent the thinner and drier our skin gets. Our facial contours start losing its youthful fullness. The skin appears dull and lifeless. Why is that? Variety of factors contribute to the speed at which we age, some of them are down to genetics and medical conditions, others we can and should try to keep under control to keep our skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible. Certain poor lifestyle...

Skin Congestion Part 1

Characteristics Of Skin Congestion: Often associated with spots and breakouts, congested skin actually consists of several different problems. It can start from all sorts of bumpiness under the surface of skin, through blackheads and/or whiteheads, angry inflamed breakouts through enlarged congested pores all the way to general thick and dull appearance and lack of healthy glow. Sounds like a big problem, but with a bit of TLC it can be rectified fairly quickly. Let’s get “under” the skin to understand the essence of the problem. Your skin’s oil glands constantly produce the sebum to lubricate our skin and hair. It...
