Blemishes & Breakouts

Whatever the causes of breakouts, blackheads and acne, ELEMIS has products and tips to help.

Deeply cleansing and toning to remove all traces of make up and daily grime will help ease congested pores. The Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Wash helps to remove dead cells, which can contribute to clogged pores, whilst also encouraging cell renewal.  Skin Buff, is a very effective exfoliator with granules that can slough off dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, more vibrant complexion.

Tip: You can mix together Skin Buff and Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Wash for an intense exfoliation treatment once a week.

Leaving Herbal Lavender Repair Mask on overnight has a calming effect on the complexion, helping to gently dry out and repair blemishes whilst also reducing redness.

Blemished or oily skin still needs care to keep it moisturised. Overly drying out the skin can cause more irritation or cause the skin to over produce oil to try and counteract the dryness. Using a moisturiser specially designed for your skins needs is the best way to care for problem skin. The Hydra range of moisturisers includes a Hydra-Balance Day Cream, an ultra-light, anti-oxidant rich cream which leaves your skin balanced and supple without over loading it.

S.O.S Emergency Cream can be used to help soothe and protect sensitive, dry and blemish prone skin while replenishing the skin’s hydration balance. Getting yourself into the expert hands of an ELEMIS therapist for treatments like the S.O.S Purifying Facial, or the BIOTEC L.E.D Blemish Control Facialwill also make a world of difference.

Remember to give products time to work – it can take at least a month for new cells to make an appearance and in the mean time, try not to touch your face too much. A healthy diet, plenty of water and sleep, plus regularly cleaning your make up brushes to avoid the build up of bacteria will all work in your favour.

There are gentle and natural solutions just around the corner. Visit or Call CV Day Spa for more advice today!

How Well do you know your own Skin?

We’re probably all a lot more unobservant than we think. Half of women wear the wrong size shoes. Two thirds wear the wrong size bra. For some reason, we settle on an idea about ourselves and we stick to it. We do it with our skin. We decide that we’re one type and we don’t deviate – but the chances are, your skin type will probably fall into more than one category. It constantly changes – hormones one week, stress the next. The need for medication. A change in diet. Smoking. Drinking. Not sleeping. All of the above.

Skin is a living organ and it mirrors what’s happening in our lives and in our bodies – so in the same way that every day is different, our skin doesn’t behave like a robot. It adapts and changes as much as we do – which is why it’s a good idea to check in with it every now and then to make sure you’re using the right products.

Most people will experience combination skin at some point. The ‘T Zone’ around the nose, forehead and eyes is naturally a bit oilier than the rest of the skin on your face, so one way to find out what mood your skin is in is to clean this area with a light cleanser, followed by a good toner and then leave it for a couple of hours. The results may not be what you’re expecting.

If you find that the skin is very tight, it may be that you need to start using a richer formula for a while to deal with any excess dryness. Sensitive skin usually benefits from something lighter, like a gel or serum, while skin prone to breakouts or redness may need special attention with regular masks designed to soothe and cleanse the pores. Whatever the results, ELEMIS has a solution. And you don’t need to be rigid in your choices. Adapt and evolve with your skin and meet it at every turn. The results will speak for themselves.
