The A Touch of Beauty team share their top 20 skin tips and tricks…
Exfoliate, be gentle and use small circular motions. For a deep exfoliation recommend a Microdermabrasion treatment and for home care the Sodashi Enzyme Face Polish 50ml $110.00. Removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin soft and silky.
Crack lips? Dermalogica Renewal Lip Complex will hydrate and protect dry lips.
Primer, always use a primer before your foundation. Your make up will last longer and look its best. We recommend the Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer ($78.00) for a normal to dry skin.
Spf, Prevention is the best thing when it comes to aging skin. Always use a spf every day, it will help to prevent pigmentation and aging dull skin.
Drink water! Keep your body hydrated with a simple glass of water. Keeping your insides hydrated will help flush toxins. We like to add a slice of lemon to add a little kick.
Make up brushes- For a photo finish make up without the fuss we use Jane Iredale Chisel Powder Brush. Don’t forget to quickly clean your brushes to keep them in the best condition.
TRAVEL SIZE! This winter we are all jet setting to warmer weather. We freshen up with all of our favourite products in travel size. So we can keep out skin looking great where ever we are in the world. Spritz on the travel size Sodashi Jet Lag Mist to ensure you are hydrated on the flight.
Don’t have the shower too hot on your face in the shower. Any broken capillaries on the face will be more visible.
Always remove your make up at the end of the day before bed. The Jane Iredale Magic Mitt $35.00. Wipe off with just water and your Magic Mitt.
Mix your Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution 500ml $73.00 with your Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant $73.00 for a quick and simple hydrating and brightening cleanse.
To enhance your eyes apply a white eye line on the bottom lid along the ‘water line’. This allows your eyes to appear more open.
To keep your eye shadows lasting longer, we use the Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Foundation $87.00 on the eye lids then applying the pop of colour with the eye shadow.
We don’t stop at the face with our TLC. We like to nurture our entire body. Relax with a warm bath and add a few drops of the Dermalogica Stress Relief Oil $40.00. To sooth the body and ease a head ache apply a drop to the temples.
For an even glowing tan exfoliate the entire body with Dermalogica’s Ultimate Buffing Cloth $24.00. Do not apply deodorants, lotions or any products which will inhibit the tans absorption.
Contour for a makeup which will enhance your best features. It’s quick and easy and we can show you how at ATOB.
Do a clean out! Clean out your skin and makeup bag. Throw away those old samples of products which you will never use, check the use by dates and freshen up with a new bag. The seasons change and so does our skin! Feel fresh and de cluttered.
Breathe! Life is so busy with work, family and commitments we lose track of ourselves. Take a moment to breathe. Book in for a relaxing facial to perk up not only your skin but your spirit☺
Complete the look with a nail polish which pops. For these cooler months we love the deep purples and reds.
A great gift for a baby shower is the Dermalogica Sponge Cloth $27.00. It’s soft and smooth, great for both mum and bubs.
Always read the packaging, ask questions and know what you are putting on your face and where it comes from. ATOB only stock the highest quality of products and love supporting products which not only look and feel amazing but are ethical.
