Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment...
This week sees new skin care launches from Pai "Pai Skincare has announced the launch of two new targeted skincare serums, designed for use on unpredictable skin. The products have been formulated to deliver anti-acne and anti-redness nutrients deep into the skin, free from common irritants including alcohol and salicylates. Available in two varieties, the serums contain potent anti-inflammatories, making them ideal for sensitive skin. Sea Aster & Wild Oat Instant Calm Redness Serum is designed for those with redness and rosacea. The sea aster inhibits the release of cutaneous neuropeptides, the molecules that cause skin to flare, by 27%. It also strengthens the surface blood vessels, helping to reduce the appearance of redness; while wild oat works to improve the appearance of delicate or damaged skin. Copaiba & Zinc Perfect Balance Blemish Serum targets acne and excess oil. Part of a triple-action anti-blemish complex, copaiba’s anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties target both the causes and effects of persistent blemishes." They will cost £42 each.
