Do you have sensitive skin?

If your skin is prone to redness and itching, you probably have highly sensitive skin. It can be incredibly difficult to find the right products to suit your skin, especially if you have allergic or irritant reactions to most products, or as a result of external environmental substances. We know how important it is to have healthy radiating skin and we may just have a solution for you.

The famous Italian cosmetic line Byothea* has just released a new range called the Fico India, translated as Barbary Fig Oil, for sensitive skin. Barbary Fig is the most natural rejuvenating remedy also known to slow down the aging process. High in Vitamin E and Omega 6, Barbary Fig works to reduce redness, restructure, heal and repair skin while also moisturising and nourishing in the process. Its powerful antioxidant component helps to stop the aging of cells, stimulating their renewal and firming the skin, and closes the pores to protect it from free radicals.

These three products from the Byothea Fico D India range will help improve and repair the health of your skin.

Concentrated Repairing Serum

The concentrated repairing serum with Barbary Fig Oil is rich in formula with 18-Beta-Glycyrrhetinic Acid and superb active principles to perform a soothing and decongesting action, defending skin from environmental elements such as the sun and wind. It reduces reddening and irritation and leaves the skin looking visibly toned and feeling smooth as silk after application. It is first delicately applied onto clean skin around the face and neck, and tapped all over these areas.

Soothing Face Cream

 

With naturally calming properties, the Soothing Face Cream prevents the reddening of the skin and performs a moisturising and nourishing action. It strengthens the skin’s protective barrier to make the skin supple and hydrated. Apply the cream to a clean face and neck area, massaging gently until fully absorbed into the skin to make it appear even and visibly compact.

 

Repairing Elixir

 

The Repairing Elixir was created to bring relief to the most fragile areas of the face that are subject reddening and couperose. It has a soothing effect, preventing your face from reddening and irritation, even in the most extreme weather conditions. Apply a few drops of Elixir to the appropriate areas, massaging until fully absorbed. For particularly sensitive skin, spread it all over the face to achieve a fresh glow to the face.

These products can be used individually or in conjunction with one another for a greater effect. Taking care of your skin is one of the most important things you can do as it affects your overall health and wellbeing. You need to be comfortable in your skin and be proud to own your incredible skin!

Hot Wax vs Strip Wax – Which is Best For You?

What is the difference between hot wax vs strip wax? You may have noticed that when you walk into a salon, different beauticians will use different methods of wax application for your hair removal, hot wax or strip wax. They both have their own advantages and disadvantages depending on what area of your body is getting hair removal and your skin and hair type.

Your skin is the biggest organ on your body, so we believe it is important that you make the right decisions about what goes on it and how you treat it. So, we have a few waxing tips for you and recommended a few options for your skin type from the Byotea* range.

STRIP WAX

Strip wax provides a speedy application with extra strong grip, no sticky residue and no skin drag. Strip wax is ideal for areas on the body with thicker and less sensitive skin, such as the arms, legs, shoulder and back. After the wax is applied in a thin layer, hair is removed using a calico or non-woven strip. However, used on more sensitive areas, it can do more damage to your skin. It needs to adhere to both the hair and skin in order to work, otherwise causing bruising, tearing and ingrown hair growth, which can be painful.

The advantages of strip wax is that it is ideal for longer parts of the body, making it very popular among salons. Byotea Liposulable strip wax delivers excellent performance during application and stripping. These products come in convenient cylindrical canister packaging and can be safely inserted directly into most wax heater appliances. This maintains a continuous temperature, sanitary workflow and express wax refill whilst the existing canister remains in the appliance. This is the range Byotea offers in strip wax products in both 100 ml cartridges or an 800 ml jar:
–¬†Chlorophyl – regenerates and protects the skin. It is ideal for normal skin with short and thick hair growth.

–¬†Honey – has a hydrating action and is suitable for all skin types, especially dry skin.

–¬†Nacre – provides sensitive action in skin. It is ideal for fine and perfectly elastic textured hair.

–¬†Titanium – guarantees soft and delicate strip action for anti-redness and protection of sensitive skin. It is also great to use during summer to maintain the appearance of suntans.

–¬†Chocolate – delivers anti-oxidising action for calming and soothing action and to alleviate irritation.

HOT WAX

Hot wax is ideal for use over smaller and more sensitive areas of the skin. It is perfect for any short and stubborn hair on any part of the face and body, as short as 1 mm! Hot wax is spread along the skin and once dried in a few seconds, it is easily removed by lifting the corner with your fingers and pulled against the hair grain. The benefits include less ingrown hairs, less breakage and longer regrowth periods. The advantages of hot wax are that they promote skin hydration with all its natural and soothing ingredients which leaves your skin feeling smooth and completely hair-free, hence making them more suitable for more sensitive skin. Hot wax also lessens the chance of skin reddening. It can also be reapplied a few times without causing discomfort.
Byotea Deliptory Hot Wax delivers excellent performance in application and stripping, especially for waxing ample areas and face, bikini line and underarm. This is the range Byotea offers in hot wax products in 1 kg trays or 1 kg individual discs:
–¬†Chlorophyl – regenerates and protects the skin. It is ideal for normal skin with short and thick hair growth.
–¬†Honey – has a hydrating action and is suitable for all skin types, especially dry skin.
– Nacre – provides sensitive action in skin. It is ideal for fine and perfectly elastic textured hair.
–¬†Titanium – guarantees soft and delicate strip action for anti-redness and protection of sensitive skin.

–¬†Chocolate – delivers anti-oxidising action for calming and soothing action and to alleviate irritation.

In terms of choosing the right type of wax for you in the hot wax vs strip wax dilemma, just ensure you are aware what the differences are between each product and what works best for different skin and hair types. Strip wax is suitable for longer areas and less sensitive skin, while hot wax is better for more sensitive and delicate areas. Then also be mindful of what key ingredients each product uses to most benefit your skin and hair growth type.
