SAY BYE TO FINE LINES


GLOW

facial tanWhy is it important to use a specialist facial tanning product? The answer is that they are usually formulated to not block your pores and have a non-greasy formula. If you are anything like me, and love the one-product-does-all approach, you've probably already dabbled with your body tan on your face. The results? It definitely takes to the face, but can become blotchy and i find that it doesn't last long. Keeping your pores clean is very important for your skin health so making sure you use the correct products on your face is a must!

Some face tans come in a formula that combines skin care benefits with a touch of self tan to build a natural looking tan which can be a great combination to get an all-in-one face solution! Check out the St Tropez Gradual Face Tan which is wonderfully light on the skin, with a moisturising formula including aloe vera and Vitamin E as well as being paraben free. Oh and one more thing, we all know that tell-tale smell of fake tan...well this gradual tan formula has innovative Aromaguard fragrance technology that eliminates the tan aroma by a minimum of 70% and instead gives a beautiful subtle, yet refreshing fragrance. How good's that!!

One other product, again by St Tropez, is a favourite of our customers, and that's the Luxe Facial Oil. Tanning oils are fast becoming a front-runner for tan lovers. If you're still sceptical, i urge you to try the MoroccanTan Dry Oil (i swear by it, and believe me, i've tried nearly every product out there!). So if you know how good tanning oil is, it's streak-free finish, why not give <a href="/products/st-tropez-self-tan-luxe-facial-oil-30ml">St Tropez Luxe Facial Oil</a> a crack too. It's non-greasy, it's quick drying and clinically proven to moisturise for up to 7 days without blocking your pores.


GET YOUR GLOW


PEARLY WHITES


There's nothing like feeling the confidence to smile! We introduced Perla about a year ago as a natural brand of teeth whitening. With these products you can naturally remove stains caused by coffee, wine and dark soft drinks (woohoo!). With the range of Perla products you can detoxify, balance PH levels, and get brighter teeth!

If you are ready to dive into the world of charcoal whitening, give the Perla Activated Charcoal Powder a go or the Perla Whitening Coconut Oil pack.

REMOVE

biodermaPutting makeup on is just as important as taking it off. Keeping your pores clear of makeup and dirt is crucial in keeping your skin healthy. Micelle water is your best friend when it comes to taking off your face (well, your makeup). Micelle molecules captures dirt and oil without causing irritation. I find that using an oil cleanser or a foam cleanser first, then finish with Bioderma Sensibio Micelle Water to get the last of the dirt away from your pores. You don't need to rinse after using micelle water, simply apply and it will self-dry. It is paraben free and hypo-allergenic for those with sensitive skin.
