Keep Your Summer Skin Glowing

Ah, the great British summer, heatwave one moment, downpours the next. As the sun once again becomes a stranger, many of us at allbeauty are ruing not making the most of that warm weather while it lasted. Whether you were lucky enough to get sun-kissed, or missed the narrow window, it isn’t too late to create, or maintain, a bronzed body throughout Autumn. 

While there’s no argument that pale skin can look absolutely gorgeous (we’re looking at you Audrey Hepburn), it’s no secret that many of us feel more radiant with that summertime glow. So, whether you’re a tanning aficionado or just dipping your toe in the water, here are our top-rated essentials for getting that holiday look, year-round.

5 Reasons Travel Size Makeup and Toiletries Are The Future

Here at allbeauty, we LOVE a travel size beauty product. We certainly don’t need any encouragement to get our hands on the latest mini makeup must-haves. But just in case you’re still sitting on the fence, here are five reasons we go wild for travel size toiletries.


1. Small on size, big on convenience

Whether you’re jetting off on a long haul adventure or spending a weekend at the in-laws, there’s no need to sacrifice convenience this summer. For short holidays of only a few days, our range of products below 30ml is ideal, while if you’re holidaying for a week or more, the “over 30ml” options will keep you well supplied until you return home.

You’d be amazed how many travel size toiletries you can fit into one mini makeup bag. Perfume? Check. Lotion? Check. Shampoo, conditioner, antiperspirant, cleanser, serum, face cream, hand cream, toner, foundation, lipstick, gloss, mascara? CHECK! 

Why force yourself to prioritise the essentials when you can bring it all?

2. They can save you money

Don’t get caught out making last-minute emergency purchases! It pays to be organised and buying toiletries is no exception. A recent investigation into comparative prices between duty free and the high street showed you can often end up paying over the odds for beauty products in airports. 

Instead, save money by ordering everything you need in advance, at allbeauty.

What’s more, for the same amount you’d spend on one large bottle, you can justify buying multiples in travel size. Leave one at work, one in your bag and one at your partner’s apartment – it’s a win/win/win! 

3. Doctor’s orders

You want to be prepared for any situation, whether it be an impromptu meal after work or an unexpected overnight stay. What you don’t want is to lug around all that excess weight. 

The average handbag weighs 3 kilograms, that’s three bags of sugar! It’s no wonder that 63% of women experience regular back pain. Travel size toiletries and mini makeup allow you to scale back the weight of what you keep in your beauty kit, without the need to sacrifice any of your must-have items.

So, whether you’re rocking a changing bag, backpack or slimline purse, free up some room and give your back a break by opting for travel size makeup. Make room for what’s most important.

4. Reduce your holiday waste

Let’s be honest, how many of us have abandoned shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and a host of other toiletries in our hotel at the end of a week away? Do you really want to run the risk of the bottle reopening in your case on the journey home? With travel size products, you bring only what you need, reducing the amount of holiday products which end up in landfill.

Not only that, but those little empty bottles at the end of your holiday still have plenty of life in them. Tried a new lotion and loved it? Buy the full-size version when you get home and decant some into the travel size bottle for your gym bag.

5. Try before you buy

You’ve heard good things about a new perfume but aren’t sure whether to commit. With travel size, you don’t have to! One of the best reasons for buying travel size makeup, perfume or toiletries, is that you get to try new products without having the initial financial outlay. 

Purchasing the mini version of a product you have your eye on allows you to give it a trial run; you can decide later whether the full-size is an investment worth making. 

Those in our office with sensitive skin swear by travel size moisturisers for precisely this reason. There’s nothing worse than buying that new, high-end cream, only to end up having an unfortunate, expensive, breakout. 

Not just that, but many mini beauty products, including lipgloss, perfumes and skincare, also come in collections of a brand’s best selling products. This gives you a fantastic opportunity to try a range of similar shades, scents, or formulations that you may not have picked out otherwise.

Want to fake a tan, but feeling a bit cautious? We understand. For years, there has been a great divide between those who can apply product to look like they’ve just spent the summer in the Bahamas sunning with cocktails on tap and those who have been, for want of a better word, tangoed. However, formulas have changed over the years and with the importance of SPF becoming more and more widely known, you never know, 2019 may just see you becoming a fan of the fake tan. Check out our product recommendations!

Top tip : Fake tan debutantes – make sure that you are well moisturised in advance to avoid a streaky look.

 

SPF (Sun Protection Factor):

We can’t stress this enough, whilst it’s important to ensure that your skin gets its daily dose of Vitamin D from outdoor exposure, applying products with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is crucial for the protection of your skin against UV B rays. It is highly recommended that SPF is worn in summer with a minimum factor of 15 to ensure that your skin is protected – even on those overcast days.

Hair Removal

Whether you embrace it, tolerate it or loathe it, controlling hair growth in the summer can be time-consuming and repetitive. If you’re fed up of choosing between a myriad of neon disposable razors, expensive salon trips or shaving subscriptions, then this section is for you. From epilation to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), handheld devices can provide more permanent solutions to your hair removal issues. Consider it a Summer Beauty investment!

What is IPL?

IPL uses light pulses to tackle hair pigmentation, which targets hair follicles at the root, discouraging growth. It can take between 6-8 sessions to be completely hairfree, but it offers you less maintenance in the long term.
IPL can reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. Double check that IPL is suitable for your hair and skin type, as pigmentation and melanin can impact product use.

Exploring Epilation:

Epilation is the act of removing multiple hairs at once using an electrical device (referred to as an Epilator). The Braun range of epilators catches even the smallest of hairs, meaning that it is a good alternative to waxing, where you have to allow for hair growth in between sessions.

We recommend exfoliating first to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. To allow for an easier and more comfortable epilation, you can use the devices in the shower or bath.

Feet

Have your feet had a winter of hibernation in socks and tights? Now is the time to air those toes and schedule in a bit of pampering – especially if you’re planning on donning your best summer footwear. Let’s face it, summer is when you are most likely to try out those super impractical but oh so fancy wedges or go on an impromptu hike (let’s hope not in conjunction but, hey, we’ve all been there), so it’s a good time to make sure your feet are adequately cared for.

Which Essential Oil Is Best For My Skin Type?

Which Essential Oil Is Best For My Skin Type?

There is a lot of buzz around Essential Oils but what are they and why do you need them in your skincare routine? We spoke to the experts at  Decléor to find out how to choose the best for your skin type… 

To find the right Essential Oils for your skin type, you first need to understand what your skin goal is; are you looking for glow, to reduce blemishes, or to target signs of ageing? Decléor have pioneered a range of  Aromessence Oil Serums, each with their own specific blend of Essential Oils, to target specific skin needs…

First Thing’s First: What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are small but very powerful compounds – one single drop of Essential Oil contains 150 botanical actives!

Where do Essential Oils come from?

Essential Oils come from plants. They are grown in the heart of the plant but only 1 in 10 plants can produce them. They help the plant avoid disease, heal and defend themselves.

Why are Essential Oils good for my skin?

Because Essential Oils are only grown from the fittest plants, they are incredibly powerful and are known to have the ability to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin that other chemical compounds can’t. They are highly volatile and lipophilic and have an incredible affinity to the skin. So, it’s not just the skin of today that is benefitting, but the skin of tomorrow too

Essential Oils for Oily Skin

Oily skin is caused by overproduction of sebum and it’s a common myth that using an oil-based serum will make your skin more greasy. Over-cleansing and using products that strip the skin will actually cause your skin to become oilier as the skin works to replace the lost oil. Try Aromessence Ylang Cananga Oil Serum twice a day with Ylang Ylang Essential Oil to reduce shine, improve skin texture and reduce blemishes.

Essential Oils for Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin affects most women at some time in the year. Often, your moisturiser works in the morning but by lunchtime, your skin can start to look dry again. Try Aromessence Neroli Amara Oil Serum to lock in hydration all day long, with Essential Oils of Sweet Orange this serum is clinically proven to protect against the signs of pollution whilst leaving your skin with a glow.

Essentials Oils for First Signs of Ageing

Our skin starts to age at about 25 years old, with the loss of collagen starting from 30 years old. It can be hard to know what to do when you start to see the lines and wrinkles appearing but it is important to target these signs of ageing when they first appear. Try Aromessence Mandarine Oil Serum with Mandarine Essential Oil to target the first signs of ageing.

Essential Oils for Ageing skin

At certain times of the year and as we age, our skin can start to lose its plumpness and not feel as tight as it used to. Our Aromessence Lavandula Iris Oil Serum contains two key Essential Oils to counteract the loss of firmness: Lavendin Essential Oil to stimulate youth, limit collagen degradation & boost collagen; and elastin synthesis and Iris Absolute to reduce the cell degradation.

Essential Oils to Fight Advanced Signs of Ageing

Many different factors can cause your skin to age, from genetics to environmental factors such as the sun, smoking, being outside in the elements, air conditioning and lack of hydration, all of which can cause your skin to age at different rates. Skin ageing is caused by a loss of collagen in the skin and Essential Oils can help to re-start the collagen production revive dull skin. Our Aromessence Magnolia Oil Serum contains Essential Oils to counteract the effects of ageing: Magnolia which initiates collagen production; Peony which works to re-plump the skin; and Lychee which reduces inflammation to revive rosy skin.
