09 Nov Is the perfect skin easier to achieve than you think?
Dry skin, oily skin, blemished skin, sensitive skin, acne prone skin … there are so many different variations. So why don’t we all just have the same type of skin? Can’t we all just have normal to oily or why can’t we can’t we just have “normal” skin.
It comes down to many different factors – you age, your genes, how much water you drink, what we put onto and into our skin, hormones, weather, environment, pollution and of course what we eat. So with all of these reasons in mind, how on earth do we choose what products are best for us and for our skin type? We like to believe in trial and error. Try a few different brands and find the range that suits your skin and gives you the best results. There is no right or wrong product, a cleanser could cost you $50 and be the perfect fit or it could cost you $10. Just keep an eye on those ingredient labels!
A brand that we have fallen in love with over at HQ goes by the name of Ultraceuticals. We love our skincare and have so many favourites that we trust and recommend and wanted to bring this one to your attention.
Ultraceuticals was founded by Dr Geoffrey Heber in 1998 as a science based-skincare range. Formulated to address major skin concerns such as ageing, acne & pigmentation the range quickly became a favourite for beauty therapists and trained skincare professionals worldwide. Now as we are all about ingredients we are thrilled to share that all Ultraceuticals products are developed using high concentrations of scientifically proven and potent ingredients. And best of all? They re all consumer tested! AND 100% certified cruelty free. To add to the excitement Ultraceuticals ingredients are obtained from non-genetically modified and environmentally sustainable resources. and free of harsh chemicals.
With all that being said, let’s take a look at a few standout products shall we?
TO CLEANSE The Ultra Balancing Gel Cleanser is a light lathering, non-stripping cleanser that gently cleanses and removes surface dirt and impurities. Best of all, this cleanser doesn’t disturb the skin’s natural moisture balance. RRP $52 RECOMMENDED for normal-oily skin types
WHAT ABOUT TO FIRM & TIGHTEN The Ultra C range can help you here. Providing antioxidant protection from the environment. The Pro collagen formulations combine pure Vitamin C with powerful peptides and penetration enhancers. What does this mean? Helping you to achieve visibly firmer skin. TRY Ultra C 10+ Firming Serum. With 10% pure Vitamin C PLUS powerful peptides and MicroCollage. RRP $110 RECOMMENDED for all skin types
FOR REDNESS That dreaded rosy hue that sneaks up on us when we least expect it and hangs around for those of us blessed with the red! We highly recommend that you take a look at the Ultra RED-Action range to assist. TRY Ultra Red-Action Moisturiser. A bioactive moisturiser to nourish and soothe that sensitive, redness prone skin. Visibly reduces the appearance of facial redness (we have tried and tested for ourselves!) and helps to promote the healthy barrier function of this skin.
