Welcome to Kira and Izzy's first Blog post

Welcome to our first Blog post from Kira and Izzy.

Over the next few months we will be giving you all the information you need to try and work out what skin type you may have, if you have any skin conditions, and the workings of the skin and everything in between.

Our goal is to help you get that youthful glow to your skin. The glow that Elemis is famous for.

Let's start by introducing you to the brand. Some of you may know the brand, but are you aware of their background?

Founded in London in 1990, 33 years ago Elemis started their brand journey and is now available in 44 countries (such an achievement). Their commitment for this wellness brand is about artist spirits, aromatherapists souls and scientists determination for results. Nature powers their products by sourcing natural extracts that catalyse each other and harnesses the power of nature's finest active ingredients. They deliver results that you can see and feel, both inside and out.

Elemis introduced the Biotec machine in 2015 to spas and salons. A cocktail of concentrated serums with a 5 in 1 facial machine that can target specific skin concerns. This machine packs some punch when is comes the attachments - Ultrasonic, Micro-current, Galvanic, Oxygen Infusion and Light Therapy. Depending on your skins needs these attachments can help lift, smooth, brighten or purify your skin.

We will be exploring in depth what each of these attachments are in our next blog, so stay tuned for that :).

Elemis has won many awards over the years, to name but a few. Winner of the CEW Awards for ‘best British’ brand 2014, which is the Oscars of the beauty industry. Elemis has been named best premium skincare brand by Sunday Times Style. Many products have won awards such as the famous Pro Collagen Marine Cream and Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm. These awards are one of the main reasons why we love this brand so much at The Colour Palette Salon. We can show our clients that its not just us saying how great these facials and products are, we have proof that many many people think the same.

This leads us into a brief overview of the four skincare collections that we use for our facials. In later posts we will go into more detail but for now this will give you a good understanding.

PRO COLLAGEN - Designed to protect and support cell structure that will replenish collagen levels that strengthen and improves the texture of your skin. This range can be used by anyone who are experiencing signs of ageing.

PEPTIDE 24/7 - Working around the clock the Peptide products support your skins natural processes of defence by day and repair during the night. This results in the skin looking fresh, renewed and well rested. We can all do with that from time to time… I know I can (Kira).

DYNAMIC RESURFACING - This range provides options for daily resurfacing and skin renewing treatments. These are gentler alternatives to abrasive scrubs or peels. It’s designed to actively smooth and refine skin while stimulating the process by which the skin naturally eliminates dead skin cells. This ultimately leads to skin that appears clearer, brighter, smoother and more even toned.

SUPERFOOD - Provides the skin with nutrition that it needs to be strong and healthy. The concept behind the Superfood range is to feed the skin form the outside in order to replenish, nourish and hydrate. Pack full of antioxidants, this will for sure kill all those mean free radicals (we will be talking about free radicals soon).

Here are some of The Colour Palettes Hero Products from the collections above, these products are the ones that as soon as we re-stock they are gone off the shelfs again.

PRO COLLAGEN CLEANSING BALM - Deeply cleanses, softens and nourishes. This is a 3 in 1 melting cleanser, first a balm, then an oil, then into a milk with 9 essential oils - Geranium, Mint, Lavender, Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Howood, Orange, Menthol and Clove. (THE SMELL IS SO INCREDIBLE).

PRO COLLAGEN MARINE CREAM SPF 30 - Fights first signs off ageing by plumping the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Layers perfectly under make up, this has to be one of the reasons why people come back for more. I personally find it’s like a facial in a bottle tyre of moisturiser (KIRA). This product has been clinically proven to double the skins moisture content.

DYNAMIC RESURFACING FACIAL WASH - Helps with uneven, congested dull looking skin. This is one of those products that never seems to get boring when using on our clients in salon facials. The difference is so noticeable with the texture of the skin, it leaves your skin so silky smooth.

We hope this was a good introduction to the Elemis brand and you can take some knowledge with you. Remember this is just the start. We have so much skin education coming your way that we are super excited about. Here at The Colour Palette Salon we pride ourselves on giving our beautiful clients the best results, we are always expanding our knowledge in all areas to make sure we can advise correctly.
