Do you spend hours browsing beauty websites for the best face creams, eye serums, and body butters? Do you daydream of being covered in sweet smelling lotions and potions?

PMD Personal Microderm, available from Harrods, www.lookfantastic.com and www.currentbody.com is priced at £150.00. The hand-held PMD Personal Microderm system delivers the same anti-ageing and skin purifying results as microdermabrasion treatments offered in medical spas and salons, but at a fraction of the price. It combines the power of deep exfoliation with vacuum suction to leave the skin looking brighter, smoother and more rejuvenated than ever.

PMD Personal Microderm uses the same aluminium oxide crystals as found in professional machines, which make up a flat, coarse disc that has a deeply exfoliating effect on the skin. The dead skin cells are instantly removed by the vacuum action of the device, which activates the innate skin healing mechanism that stimulates cell renewal and collagen production in the upper layers of the skin.

Ultimate Blends Body Range by Garnier, available from any good high street beauty and cosmetic store, prices vary £4.99 – £5.99. Ultimate Blends Body care products are specially formulated to meet the specific needs of each and every skin type, even sensitive.

The skin on our bodies is naturally more prone to dehydration and is
very different to facial skin. It has less sebum and protective lipids and is more exposed to the effects of washing, hair removal and friction from clothing. The skin’s natural barrier can become less absorbing and can lose water more easily, leaving it dehydrated. These losses can only be compensated for by regularly applying oils and other moisturising ingredients to keep the skin’s hydration level in balance.

Special formulations for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Each Ultimate Blends Body formula has been developed using different technologies to carefully blend selected ingredients for powerfully effective results and an incredible sensory experience. The more glycerides and nourishing ingredients the formula contains the more moisturising, nourishing and restorative it will be.

With 4 varieties to choose from each with a choice of lotions, body butters and oils there’s an Ultimate Blend for you. Including; Hydrating, Nourishing, Restoring, and Soothing.
