Gentle exfoliation genius from bea Skin Care

beauty

Love a good exfoliate without all of the harsh scratching at your skin?
Welcome bea Skin Care & their fantastic gentle exfoliating cleanser…

It contains 7% #glycolicacid (a proven, natural ingredient derived from sugar cane) which can even be used on oily skin, sensitive skin and rosacea. It also contains #citric acid and #greentea (for reducing inflammation)

bea says:
The Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser replenishes the skin’s moisture barrier by removing toxins and other impurities from the skin’s epidermal layer. This means its active ingredients can tackle a range of chronic skin conditions which, unless adequately treated, are otherwise difficult to remedy.

Use twice daily (AM and PM). Using your fingertips, massage a small amount onto damp skin in a circular motion, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Rinse off with warm water. For best results, follow with the application of bea Skin Care’s Peptide Eye Serum, Vitamin C 20% & Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Collagen Complex Cream.

Suitable for daily use, the Cleanser is supposed to resurface the skin and eliminates dead skin cells whilst reducing inflammation at the same time; and honestly it’s BLOODY brilliant!

Our thoughtsI cannot put this product down, because there’s no scratching like a traditional exfoliator as some of us know it – no sugar or the now banned plastic beads! Meaning you get a delightful cleanse with the results or a really good scrub!… Now of course this one has acid in it, and we advse you all to read into what you are putting onto your face… as we have only really just looked into this ourselves of late and are following the writings of many fab well known beauty Guru types to really get our heads around this stuff!

An in-sight to Semi-permanent brows…

beauty

Semi-permanent brows… they’re a MUST! …

Now I was very tentative about heading to any salon and letting ANY person near my face with any form of tattooing tools… and a slight fear of a permanent fixture of brows on my face which could be the totally wrong colour.  Fear not, you won’t walk out like a character from The Simpsons, I hope!…

Semi permanent make-up is now hugely popular, with brow, eyeliner and lip liner procedures widely available. It consists of applying a hypo allergenic pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, using a non-surgical process, similar to that of tattooing.

Lasting for years, the key to perfection is to find a professional semi-permanent make-up artist to be honest – ITS CRUCIAL! 

Meet Sophie from Beau Boutique in Ashford, Kent. Even before we met, I received a detailed outline in the post of exactly what the procedure is, and how to look after my new brows once complete. Once at the salon, I had numbing cream applied to the area, as I awaited my appointment time. She immediately put me at ease, in particular with the first question… what would YOU like? We discussed shape and colour (for me i’m a redhead so as natural as possible!) Sat on the bed, she explained that she would draw on the shape, using a method of measuring and freehand strokes, plus also draw in (with white pencil areas where she would remove any present hairs.

Safe to say I was already happy when she finished drawing! – The procedure took around two hours, where she alternated between brows, applying the pigment (shade hazelnut by L.I) in hair strokes to each brow. Every time she moved to the other she would apply more numbing cream, to keep me as comfortable as possible. Once the hair strokes were complete, she asked whether I would like shading to make them look much more natural, which I agreed to, and she proceeded over each brow shading in the area. (This bit hurt a little bit I’m not going to lie) – but this is due to going over the areas she had already done so of course they were a bit tender!

At this stage ladies… DON’T PANIC – your brows will be a darker colour and will lighten during the healing process! Mine were exactly like this statement… darker and bolder and I was thinking I hope I haven’t gone too dark!!! But Sophie was very assuring and instructed me on my healing process aftercare before I left.

Immediately after the treatment

Dry healing is Sophie’s method of choice, where the evening after your bathe your brows with a cotton wool ball using cool boiled water. After this there’s no getting them wet for 14 days! (I prepare for my brows with an exfoliating scrub or mask the day before in my brow area and I think this helped preserve my sanity somewhat with the dry healing process as they go dry and scabby in this time and you can’t pick or scratch!!! – so I find preparing the skin so it’s at its best for application makes the process easier and less itchy!)

Four weeks later you will return for a free colour boost if needed, where any gaps in the colour will be filled and bring them back to perfection! After you have your perfect brows and are walking around giving your fleeky brows the eye in every mirror possible, look after them!

Make sure when going abroad you keep them out of direct sunlight with a hat or big sunnies to prevent fading, and no matter where you are make sure you give yourself a good coverage in spf too! (Even on the cloudiest of days!)

Also consider what you are putting on your face as part of your skincare routine. Do you know the ingredients that you are putting on your skin? If not I truly believe you should know! In the age of the acid cleanser – think @glossier #solution or @beaskincare gentle Exfoliating cleanser (reviews coming soon) and the multiple acids available from the likes of @theordinary and @pixi (plus many more) you need to check because Glycolic acid should be avoided on your new brows. As over time this will cause them to fade. (We noticed that one of our fave in-shower face masks contains this too! So we are taking care with this and making sure our brows are avoided during this process in our routine!

Only last thing you have a couple of different styles to choose from…

Hairstroke brows – Where individual ‘hairstrokes’ of pigment are applied to the brow line, extremely natural and great to replace non existent hair from over plucking!

Powder brows – a more blocky style where pigment is dispersed throughout the whole area. in the form of shading… These are the best option for oily skin, as the oils tend to make the hairstroke option blur more. Plus Oily skinned brow lovers are likely to need colour boosts more often at around 8-10 months instead of 12 months onwards!
