How to: hide pesky pimples

Australia's leading beauty destination, Beauty Heaven, has great tips and tricks for all of your beauty disasters. Below is their great advice for dealing with pimples and blemishes.

Nothing screams disaster more than an unwelcome angry spot when you wake up in the morning, and a big blemish can shatter your confidence, so it’s important to be prepared. 

What to do: an angry pimple needs to be treated with the utmost care. Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Concealer is a friend you’ll want to keep in reach as it’s a medicated concealer that helps to clear spots while covering them (so you can ditch the paper-bag-over-the-head idea).

Another idea: if you’re not heading out, you probably don’t need cover up your new little friend. Why not give Aveda Outer Peace Blemish Spot Relief a go? It packs a punch, working powerfully to eliminate breakouts, instantly reduce redness and prevent any further spots.

Jan Marini's Tips to Protect your skin in Autumn & Winter

REASSESS YOUR SKINCARE - A change of season is the perfect time to reassess your skin and wintry days will allow you more time to bone up on the latest technologies being used in skincare, so you can make better choices.

HYDRATE - Add  a hydrating serum, underneath your cream moisturiser for extra hydration & protection, or add a heavier cream to your hydrating serum. The Peptide Extreme is the latest anti-aging, rebuilding skin care product and it’s soooo hydrating! If you need more protection than that, add the Transformation Cream.

EXFOLIATE - Exfoliate regularly using Proteolytic Enzymes, such as Clean Zyme & Skin Zyme. Proteolytic enzymes digest dead protein, so they gently exfoliate your skin without harming the healthy cells. The Enzymes used in Clean Zyme & Skin Zyme come from unripened green papaya & as well as exfoliating your skin, are very hydrating. It’s a great combination! When you exfoliate gently, your moisturisers penetrate more effectively and your skin looks more vibrant.

INVEST IS TREATMENTS - Have more regular treatments like microdermabrasion or glycolic peels at your favourite clinic or salon. Make sure you have a professional skin assessment while you are there! Winter is also the best time of year to have laser/IPL and light rejuvenating treatments to address your skin’s condition, texture, colouration etc

PROTECT - Wear your sunscreen every day such as Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant. Don’t be fooled by dull, cloudy, and rainy days. UV rays are all around us and are constantly damaging our skin. Make sure your sunscreen also contains antioxidants to help combat the damage of free radicals caused by UV.

DRINK WATER - In winter, we tend to drink more warming teas and coffee, which are diuretic. Drinking more water will help to keep you better hydrated. You’ll look & feel better!

DON’T DRY OUT YOUR SKIN - Avoid using toners and astringents, which can be harsh and drying on the skin. If your cleanser washes clean, there is no need to use a toner.

RESURFACE - Incorporate into your skincare regime a resurfacing product such as Age Intervention Regeneration Mask to keep your follicles clear and your skin smooth and supple. Whatever you apply onto the skin after your resurfacing product will penetrate much better and therefore be more effective!

REPAIR - Make sure that the products that you use contain technologies that help rebuild the skin. There are plenty of products on the market that do nothing other than hold the moisture in the skin. If your products contain technologies that are medically validated, your moisturiser will do so much more!  Winter is the perfect time to work on that pigmentation that developed over Summer. Add into your skincare regime some skin lightening agents to help even out your skin tone and make the skin more luminous, like Age Intervention Enlighten or Bioglycolic Lightening Gel and Lumin8.

By the time you’ve done all this, we’ll be heading into Summer again and your skin will be well prepared and looking great!

My Chic Style

With autumn racing season upon us, amazing hair is on every fashion forward girl’s agenda, and the My Chic style from MYCURL guarantees you exactly that! The MY Chic Style is for the fashionista who wants to be noticed! Ideal for longer hair, this style gives you the edge you need to stand out from the crowd!
Created at home using the genius styling tool MyCurl, the My Chic style gives movie star results without the Hollywood price tag. After a decade-long addiction to poker-straight hair, styles are now loosening up, with everything from soft waves to goddess curls appearing on runways and the red carpet. Think Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bullock at this year’s Academy Awards.

How to Create the Look:

Place hair into side part and spray with thermal protector. Roll 4 MYCURLs in, leaving the last 3cm of hair out of the MYCURL. Directing the MYCURLs back away from the face, secure the mid ends with first strap, then continue rolling to roots and secure 2nd strap.

Clamp your Cloud Nine irons over every MYCURL for 3 seconds. 

Allow hair to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before removing MYCURLs 

To finish the style, place hair into shape and spray a light amount of gloss to the ends. Secure with a light hairspray.   

Available from leading salons or visit MyCurl
