Skin Care Tips at Sutherlands Hair and Beauty

At Sutherlands Hair and Beauty we like to ensure your skin is in the best condition it can be, so we have put together a quick troubleshooting guide to common habits that can cause damage.

  • Washing with water that is too hot can stip the skin of essential moisture and healthy oils. Try lukewarm water instead.
  • Did you know you can load your skin with too many products. Layering 3 or 4 different serums to the skin at night time may impact the effectiveness of the products. If your skin has multiple needs try alternating different serums.
  • Remember to always wear an SPF, ideally 30 or above. Studies have shown that the no.1 cause of damage and aging to the skin is sun exposure. Excessive exposure to the sun’s rays can cause wrinkling, a leathery skin appearance, and in worst cases – skin cancer. Sunscreen products play an important role in helping diminish the harm of the sun’s rays.
  • Makeup remover wipes are a popular choice due to ease of use, however, they can play havoc with your skin’s pH balance. To maintain the moisture of wipes they need to be heavily doused with preservatives (often alcohol). These harsh chemicals can disrupt the skins natural barrier leading to sensitivity. If the skin has been damaged we recommend the Elizabeth Arden Pro Barrier Repair Complex. For a alternative to wipe try soaking cotton pads Decleor’s Micellar Water and storing them in a box in the fridge. Bothe products are available at Sutherlands Hair and Beauty.
