Why Looking After Your Feet Should Be Your Top Priority

Why looking after your feet should be your top priority this winter

With a change in season fast approaching and temperatures starting to drop, it’s even more important to step up our beauty routines, and that applies to foot-care too!

And just because our feet go into hiding in Autumn and Winter, doesn’t mean we should forget about them. In fact, feet tend to needeven more care and care during the colder months thanks to the colder air, central heating, and closed and often tighter-wearing shoes. It’s time ramp up the foot pampering now more than ever!

Why is it important to care for your feet?

Research has shown that the blood supply in the feet is hugely affected by the fluctuating temperature. So when the temperature drops and your feet become cold, your heels can become incredibly hard and crack.

Did you know? Tights and socks can restrict your foot’s blood supply, causing cold, dry feet”

How to prevent dry, cracked soles:

In order to keep the soles of your feet healthy and happy for this season and beyond, it’s important to exfoliate and moisturise them regularly to prevent the build up of hard skin.  For beautifully soft feet all-year round, we’d recommend the best-selling Exfoliation Foot Peel andwith the newly launched Extra Rich Foot Cream from Baby Foot. 

What makes Baby Foot so special?

Described as ‘weird’, ‘gross’ and the ‘best thing ever’, Baby Foot is Japan’s no.1 selling foot peel.  A total foot care package for the feet, the Exfoliation Foot Peel takes just 60-minutes to get to work on dead skin build up. Formulated with 17 types of natural extracts which both exfoliate and moisturise at the same time, it works harder than any pedicure can achieve. The principal ingredient in the Exfoliation Foot Peel is fruit acid; a super gentle ingredient when compared with other acids.

Baby foot how it works allbeauty blog

How does Baby foot work?

The unique fruit acid formula penetrates the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which holds the layers together. With this process, the skin is un-damaged and peels away from the fresh layers beneath; with no pain experienced at all!

When the peeling is all done (which is usually around the 10-day mark), your feet will look and feel as though they’re reborn and softer than you could ever achieve with the typical pedicure tools available.

How can I maximise the results of Baby Foot?

The Extra Rich Foot Cream is the essential aftercare care product to the Exfoliation Foot Peel. This rich and hydrating cream is enriched with Shea butter and provides your feet with exactly what they need post-peel; intense much-needed moisture! It’s just really important to remember that the Extra Rich Foot Cream should only to be applied once the peeling process is completely finished.

Exfoliation and moisturising your feet really do go hand-in-hand. After-all, it’s hard for moisturiser to penetrate the skin deeply if hard skin is there; highlighting the need for both products for the absolute maximum results.

Everything You Need To Know About Clinique

How a simple Vogue article revolutionised skincare and led to the creation of Clinique products…

Did you know that the idea for Clinique came from a Vogue editor?

The year is 1967, and the question on everybody’s lips is: Can great skin be created?  Norman Orentreich, a New York dermatologist, is advising his patients to use a 3-step skincare system of his own creation: cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise, when he meets Vogue Beauty Editor Carol Phillips.  Tired of seeing the same one-size-fits-all creams in stores, together they create a trailblazing Vogue article and the rest, they say is history!

everything you need to knnow about clinique allbeauty blog

The creation of ‘Clinique’

In a leading article in the August 1967 edition of Vogue magazine – aka THE article – Dr Orentreich explained how great skin can be created. It was a fascinating article, and one that was also read by Evelyn Laude –  daughter in law of Estée. A meeting was promptly set up between Carol Phillips, Dr Orentreich and Estée Lauder, and ‘Clinique’ was born.

The idea that great skin could be created with the righ products marked a new era in skincare, and in 1968 the world famous 3-Step Skin Care System was introduced. Barely a year later, Clinique opened its first UK beauty counter, and  has since become on of the most trusted prestige beauty brands in the world.

The science behind the brand

The first ever dermatologist-developed prestige beauty brand, all of clinique’s skincare products are 100% fragrance-free and allergy tested.

1. Relax in the bath

Catch up on social media, watch an episode of your favourite show, tune into the morning news or finally start reading that book you’ve been meaning to read- you’ll be ready for the day in no time!

2. Pop a face mask on

Everyone loves a face mask, but the Sleep Power Recharge Mask from thisworks is an allbeauty favourite! Designed to recharge and re-energise skin, this bright blue mask helps clear skin and leaves it feeling softer and looking more refreshed. Apply an even layer all over your face and leave for at least 30 minutes.

3. Exfoliate

Probably the most skipped part of anyshower routine, exfoliating is super important to prevent dead skin build-up and unclog pores. It’s also a great way to add a little zing in your step in the morning! We love the Grumpy Cow Uplifting Shower Scrub from Cowshed. Made from bamboo scrub particles and with energising ginseng extracts, massge into wet skin to boost circulation and nourish skin.

REGENERATE Tooth Enamel System: How It Works

The REGENERATE tooth enamel system has been inspired by bone repair technology. We explain the science behind the brand and how easy it is to use.

Thanks to more than nine years of research, enamel erosion is a thing of the past! Find out how Regenerate can help protect your teeth with their scientifically proven, quick and easy-to-use system… 

What is enamel erosion?

regenerate tooth enamelTooth enamel may be the hardest substance in our body, but it suffers from erosion every single day! Erosion is caused by acidic food and drink (even healthy ones!) such as citrus fruits, fizzy drinks and wine.

Did you know? Tooth enamel is harder than bone!

Thanks to its high mineral content, tooth enamel is almost as scratch resistant as diamond (well, half!) and helps to protect teeth from damage.  Unfortunately,  our bodies cannot make more enamel, so once it is lost it cannot be replaced.  Until now! REGENERATE Enamel Science™ is the first system able to regenerate enamel mineral* with exactly the same mineral that tooth enamel is made of.

What are the signs of enamel erosion?

There are many different effects of enamel erosion, including:

  1. Cracking – edges of the teeth begin to crack and feel rough
  2. Yellowing – because of the thinning enamel, the underlying dentine becomes more visible
  3. Transparency – the tips of the front teeth may appear transparent
  4. Grooving – tiny indentations may arise on the surface of the teeth
  5. Sensitivity – as the underlying dentine becomes exposed, you may feel sharp twinges when eating hot or cold food and drink

How does the Regenerate Tooth Enamel System work?

Years of laboratory research – inspired by advanced bone repair technology – have led to the development of the exclusive and internationally patented REGENERATE NR-5™ technology. The first system that can regenerate enamel mineral** with the same mineral that tooth enamel is made of.

Step one:  Advanced Toothpaste (daily use)

Clincally proven to regenerate enamel mineral***, protect against cavitiies, restore original whiteness, with a fresh, minty sensation.

Used daily (ideally twice a day) in place of your usual toothpaste, Advanced Toothpaste begins working right from the start. Every time you use the REGENERATE Advanced Toothpaste, its unique ingredients form a fresh supply of enamel mineral. These then wrap and integrate onto the teeth and regenerate enamel mineral*** with exactly the same mineral your tooth enamel is made

Step two:  Advanced Enamel Serum (3 minutes, 3 days. Once a month)

Each Advanced Enamel Serum Kit contains: 1 x NR-5™ Serum, 1 x Activator Gel and 2 x custom-fit mouth trays plus mixing stick. Simply use the kit on 3 consecutive nights every month before bed, for just 3 minutes, to boost the effectiveness of the toothpaste by 43%**** For best results, use in combination with the Daily Advanced Toothpaste. Refills are available.
