The importance of good skincare - the BeautyLab way

Posted in: Latest News

We would all love perfect skin but for many of us this has to be managed to keep it under control.

Skin needs to be pampered and looked after and it will look after you in years to come. An effective skincare routine can help prevent acne, treat wrinkles, and help keep your skin looking its best. 

Good skincare is important but it shouldn’t become a daily chore. Many dermatologists recommend keeping it simple, and starting with a cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen every morning. 

Face serums are worth their weight in gold and deliver a more powerful dose of active ingredients than a cleanser or moisturiser. Depending on your skin type, they are a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles. 

There are so many skin products on the market that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but as stockists of BeautyLab, we know that this is the only skincare brand we need for our faces.  

BeautyLab treats many common skin complaints, and is a saviour for your skin.

Here we recommend some of our own personal favourites and those recommended by others, which you can use to manage your personal skin issue.

Dull, grey skin which has lost its glow 

When you don't wash your face, it becomes dry, has that rough feeling and the excess dead cells that would normally be washed away are stuck to your face causing it to look grey and dull. Your pores will get and stay clogged, which can cause acne and enlarged pores and so it’s really important to keep up a skincare regime which exfoliates, revitalises and rejuvenates.

Dry or dehydrated skin

Dry skin is a skin type, but dehydrated skin is a condition that anyone can experience. Drinking plenty of water regularly is a simple free solution to helping parched skin but a good skin product helps this along. Dry skin has a lack of oil, or lipids but for dehydrated skin, there's a lack of water in the top layer of the skin. You will notice if your skin is dehydrated because it can have patches of flakiness or your fine lines may appear more pronounced. All skin types can suffer from dehydrated skin - including oily and combination and this is easily remedied with the right ingredients.

BeautyLab Hydrating mask - This restores skin to its silky feel, and is recommended to give your face a luxuriant mask every two weeks as a ‘pick me up’, to combat against environmental aggressors and daily stresses which show on our face. It contains peptides to restore plumpness, and support collagen production, superfruit acai berry to promote skin repair, sweet almond and vitamins A and E. Hydrating Mask

BeautyLab Multi vitamin Oil - Nourishing, hydrading, soothing and softening, this gorgeous lightweight oils packs a punch for thirsty skin. Jojoba, buriti and argan oil help conditon and moisturise the skin whilst superfruits protect collagen and elastin. Antioxidants help to rebuild skin whilst passion flower has anti inflamatory properties and brings relaxation as well as deep hydration. Multi Vitamin Oil

Sensitive skin

Whilst not a skin type as such, it can be contributory to skin complaints such as redness, breakouts or skin allergies. Sensitive skin is a common issue and refers to skin that is more prone to inflammation or adverse reactions, but includes the following:

  • Your skin is reactive
  • You notice redness
  • Your skin is dry
  • You develop rashes often
  • You're prone to breakouts
  • You sunburn easily

BeautyLab products are paraben free, and use only the purest ingredients which your skin reaps the rewards from. But sensitive skin sufferers will find that they have to trial skin products for any reactions. We can advise you on the best products to go for.

Such an unpredictable skin condition, because skin flare ups can occur at random moments and catch you unaware. As a rosacea sufferer, it is customary to have a whole range of skincare products at your disposal with some targeted at redness reduction, sensitive skin or at preventing flare ups. Vitamin C is hailed as the super ingredient to help reduce skin flare ups, because of its amazing qualities to strengthen and repair capillaries.

It is not recommended to exfoliate skin which suffers from rosacea because this can exacerbate the issue but there are many products available which do work with your skin.

BeautyLab Vitamin C Serum Concentrate - This has been suggested by a rosacea sufferer who has started to notice that her skin flare ups are less frequent. A serum with a powerhouse antioxidant, this plays a key role in maintaining healthy cell function, supporting collagen production and reducing lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C Serum

Enlarged pores

Enlarged pores can be a skin condition if pores appear visible on your nose or cheek area. When your sebaceous glands produce excessive sebum, that mixes with dead skin cells in your pores which causes blocked pores. The sebum cannot release resulting in your pores becoming wider and this can go on to cause blackheads. Regular exfoliation is a must to clear dead skin cells but to also use light face lotions as opposed to rich creams which further clog pores.

BeautyLab Balancing Toner - this post-cleanse toner improves the appearance of pores by reducing oil build-up. Burdock regulates sebum production and prevents breakouts. Pro-vitamin B5 helps with hydration and plant collagen boosts skin smoothness, whilst wild yam evens out skin tone. Balancing Toner

Acne-prone skin

Blemish-prone skin is often oily, appears shiny and is likely to develop pimples or acne. People with oily skin can also suffer from blackheads and whiteheads which cause their own issues. But skin which is congested and clogged up can also create spots and acne. If you have oily and acne-prone skin, select a face serum with salicylic acid and retinols, as well as rosehip seed oil.

BeautyLab Glyco-Wash 5% - A  very popular cleanser because it really does work on acne-prone or spotty skins. It contains hyaluronic acid and slow releasing salicylic acid which continues to work after it has been applied, and it works hard to combat blemishes, breakouts, dullness and pigmentation. The decongesting cleanser penetrates the pores, unclogging excess oil and removing dead dull cells to stimulate cell regeneration. Pomegranate exfoliates and this results in a fresher faced, more even look. Glycowash 5%

BeautyLab Glycolic Discovery Set - this is a starter set which enables you to try out the products first but includes the glyco-wash, ultra defence hydrator moisturiser and multi-vitamin oil. The moisturiser contains green tea and polysaccharides to improve hydration and boost the skin’s moisture levels. Finally, the oil fights dryness, and is rich in Buriti and passion flower to rehydrate. Highly recommended. Gylcolic Skincare Discovery Set


Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including acne if it has caused some scarring. People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure. But it can also be caused by an excess production of melanin. Aways use a high factor SPF in your products and makeup

Ageing and maturer skin

We tend to hone in on products which are youth boosting from our 40’s into our 50’s and 60’s but it’s important to do your research too to find the award winning creams which stand up to their ‘youthful’ claims. For mature and dry skins, something with hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C help to protect and de-age.

The latest dermabrasion products smooth the skin, making it feel silky soft but also prepare the skin for serums and moisturisers to sink into the deeper layers and of course, make up glides on a lot smoother too.
