Yummy February 2015 Grooming Guide
This month, I’m going to keep things simple. As we battle the elements – namely the bitter cold weather and the damp weather – I thought I’d come up with some suggestions as to how to combat the elements with the help of six products. I’m not suggestIng you use all six at once! But I reckon by pairing these up they turn into formidable Dynamic Duos which well tackle any winter worries.
Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 £60.70
Dermalogica Skin Hydration Booster £52.50
Cant think of a better way of protecting your skin and ensuring it stays in tip-top condition – with no chance of becoming dry, itchy or irritated – than by combining these two products!
Skin Recovery is dreamy – seriously easy to use and you’ll achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturiser with Broad Spectrum SPF50.
Prepare for the science bit – IT contains AGE Smart® ingredients to enhance the skin’s natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species), help prevent the signs of aging caused by sugar reacting with proteins in skin (AGEs) and regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.
And just ensure you’re skin is in super-healthy condition, treat it to a Skin Hydration Booster treatment – say once a week or when you feel you need a little err BOOST!
This is a super- saturated hydrating fluid concentrate to help revitalise dry, parched skin. Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and nutrient-rich Algae Extract help restore moisture balance and hydrate tissues to smooth skin, improve suppleness and minimise fine dryness lines. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich 50ml -£80
Elemis Pro-Collagen Hyrda Eye Gel Masks – £46
The anti-ageing power of the best-selling multi-award winning Pro-Collagen Marine Cream has now been combined with a rich base of amino acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins and seaweeds to comfort and nourish dry or dehydrated skin. Specially formulated to provide instant and long lasting hydration it is clinically proven to keep skin moisturised for up to 24 hours*. Skin is left softer, smoother and firmer.
For regular users of Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, work Ultra-Rich into your regime when you need more moisture as skin can be much drier depending on factors such as the weather, stress and diet. Alternatively switch over to Ultra-Rich if you need more richness in your daily routine to keep skin moisture levels in peak condition.

L’Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil £17
L’Occitane Light Comforting Creram £26
The Shea Cleansing Oil, with its silky texture, efficiently removes impurities and make-up (including waterproof) in a single step.
Enriched with nourishing shea oil (5%), it transforms into a soft emulsion when applied with water to preserve skin’s natural hydration. Your skin will be clean and comfortable, and your complexion looking fresh and radiant.
The Light Comforting Cream is formulated with 5% shea butter to answer the essential needs of normal to combination skin, including sensitive skin types. Lastingly moisturised (48h), skin is supple and soft. As protected against external aggressions, skin stays comfortable all day long.
In Burkina Faso, women produce shea butter by hand. While one might expect this technique to weaken and damage the skin, in reality it leaves it incredibly soft. L’OCCITANE discovered that the shea butter produced in Burkina Faso using traditional methods is particularly rich in omega 6 and karitene. These molecules have exceptional properties and help to moisturise, nourish and give extra protection to the skin every day.
