I consider myself to have an extremely busy life, one that requires space for me to fill up after a busy week working in the salon, managing my team and also allowing myself time to unwind, get creative, as well as catching up with family and friends.
Like a builders house my skin can often be the last one to receive any work. I always remove makeup and apply serum and moisturiser, however masques are a often a luxury as are insalon treatments. I don't always exfoliate as often as I should. Yes I am being honest.
My way around this is to use an exfoliating cleanser alternatively with my every day cleanser. Something like Image Skincare Ageless Total Cleanser which preps the skin and allows other products to do their job more effectively. This cleanser is exfoliating and encourages faster cell turnover brightening my skin and leaving it more even toned. Another reformulated option I test drove in the weekend can take your skin to the next level is Image Clinical Skincare MD Restoring Facial Cleanser.
Alternatively add Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque to your cleanser, small environmentally safe beads mechanically exfoliate while AHA's from sugar cane stimulate circulation to the skin increasing oxygen leaving skin radiant and smooth. It also whitens redness.
Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel releasing in New Zealand this week has the optimum amount of active ingredients to give your skin an intense home treatment with no down time. Just one peel a week for 10 weeks will leave you feeling like you have been in for a series salon treatment. AHA's from Lime Caviar while fermented plant enzymes stimulate cell turnover, smoothing and brightening skin.
As skin therapists we have come to expect versatility from the skincare we stock. As a result we encourage you to ramp up any of our masques by adding a powder exfoliant increasing their effectiveness as a 15 minute home treatment. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant added to the Multi Vitamin Power Recovery Mask will revitalise your skin.
Check with us if these options are good for you before you proceed to avoid adverse reactions. Remember it is about working with your therapist to ensure you have products that are beneficial to your skin.
Overnight masks make a visible difference while you sleep. This new generation of masks reduces the drying effects of retinol adding significant hydration in just 8 hours. Once you have cleansed simply apply a thin layer of the mask leave it 15 minutes before jumping into bed, rinse in the morning ready to begin your morning ritual and voila super hydrated, firmer skin.
Simply Indulgent stocks two to choose from Image Skincare Ageless Total Retinol Overnight Masque provides a time release of water, increases cell turnover while infusing intense actives to firm and reduce lines and wrinkles. Just about everyone needs retinol in the quest to age proof skin.

I use both masques on alternate nights to optimise my skin health.
