The beauty of the skin comes from within, it is with regular care, a healthy diet and habits which collectively give the right balance for skin to look healthy and glowing. But the reality is more often than not, damage is caused by what we do rather than what we don’t do, beauty and care products are to blame in many cases. There are endless products out there but the chemicals and harsh elements contained in their formula often suffocate our dermis. We don’t read the fine print, we just follow what we see on tv or magazines, we think that because it is this or that brand it should be a good product…but can we prove they deliver what they promise?…often not.
Maybe you’ve experienced reactions such as irritated skin when you apply your firming cream at night, or when you apply your night repair cream it feels itchy, when you have sensitive skin even a good product can cause allergies, irritation and other complications such as dermatitis and eczema. This is when we should avoid the use of chemicals as much as we can.
A few days ago I had the opportunity to try Dermaveen and was glad to know it is formulated with nature’s superfood colloidal oatmeal, which helps soothe, restore and protect dry, itchy and sensitive skin. I have to say I’m pleased with the Dermaveen range of products, especially the Soap Free Wash. While creams are important to keep your skin moisturised and nourished, it is more important to look at what you do first – the shower… You wouldn’t think regular soap is harmful but it is, so imagine how much damage we cause to our skin day by day. But with Dermaveen’s Soap Free Wash my skin feels not only clean but restored, so gentle that it is suitable for a baby’s delicate skin. As its name states, it is soap free and PH balanced and free from fragrances, lanolin and parabens.
The Moisturising Lotion is perfect for a daily beauty routine, it’s formulated to hydrate, fight dryness and soothe and soften your skin. It is a light lotion formula that is rapidly absorbed.
And last but not least the Revive & Protect Body Moisturiser SPF 50+, a must have if you ask me, and an ally in the prevention of skin cancer and premature skin aging, not only during our visits to the beach but whenever we are exposed to the harsh Australian UV which can be high even on a cloudy day. It is specially formulated for extra dry and sensitive skin. Unlike other sunscreens this one is so gentle you can apply it on your face without any itchy sensation. Of course, it is a great companion for the beach as it provides four hours of water resistance.
Overall Impressions, I don’t think I can get back to using normal soap as I really like the results with Dermaveen’s Soap Free Wash. If I scratch my skin I don’t see white soap residue like most soaps seem to leave. The Moisturising Lotion has proved to be effective with my body and gentle with my hands which often get irritated and dry due to the use of cosmetic creams. And of course, I would recommend the Body Moisturiser SPF 50+, an imperative for outdoor protection that actually pampers the skin.
Thanks for your visit!
