Grooming: LAMELLE SERRA RANGE

DRY SKIN?

 

Dry skin is more common than you may think. Studies have suggested that dry skin, medically referred to as Atopic Dermatitis, refers to the failure of the epidermal barrier and is in fact the primary trigger that results in dryness and overall sensitivity.

The Lamelle Serra Range is a lipid replacement therapy that exactly mimics the structure and function of the natural lipid bi-layer that is critical in terms of maintaining a healthy epidermis or top-most skin layer.

In short, where regular moisturisers create a layer of moisture on the surface of your skin, Serra actually recreates the human skin barrier – essentially replacing what is missing and eliminating the root cause of dry skin. Serra causes a permanent change in your skin’s behaviour and not simply a temporary “band aid” to a dry skin problem.

The Serra range includes a Cleansing Gel, Restore Cream and Soothing Cream. A Lipid Recovery Mask is also available in the range.

A LEGEND LIVES ON

To commemorate the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE’s 30th anniversary, Onitsuka Tiger is taking it back to its roots.

One of the pioneer trail running shoes in the ASICS family, the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE was created in the ’80s and launched in 1985 at the peak of the running boom. Thirty years later the latest version of the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE retains all the elements of the original – 3M reflective heel window, rubber heel cap for stability, blocked EVA midsole, aggressive outsole, comfort and flexibility.

Whether you’re blazing trails or combating the daily commute – the COLORADO EIGHTY-FIVE is the perfect fusion of good looks and great tech.

HOUSE OF HACKNEY, BACK!

Good news for those of you who, like us, fell in love with the first collaboration between PUMA and London label House of Hackney. April 2015, SS’15 sees PUMA release the second collaboration, with fresh House of Hackney prints applied to traditional PUMA silhouettes, to create exclusive footwear and apparel which are strangely familiar yet strikingly new.

First founded as an interiors label with an emphasis on quality, design and ‘Made In England’, the House of Hackney (HoH) husband and wife team of Javvy M. Royle and Freida Gormley captured the zeitgeist with their innovative designs.

The collection is available from at PUMA SELECT stores in Cape Town, Bree Street and Braamfontein, Johannesburg, as well as X-Trend, The Jungle and Queens.

    Visit www.dermaogica.co.za for more info.

BE SMART!

It’s not long to go now before the cold winter weather starts taking it’s toll on ones skin. With less moisture in the air, there is less moisture in our skin and indoor heat can be just as dehydrating. Icy winds can also strip moisture from exposed skin. And, sadly, so can long hot baths.

Start protecting and boosting your skin now. Don’t wait for signs of damage. Dermalogica’s Overnight Repair Serum is an excellent antidote to winter skin. By synchronizing with nighttime circadian rhythms it enhances skin nourishment, recovery, cell renewal and hydration levels.

What’s in it? Argan oil, rose oil, carrot seed oil and jasmine oil.

How to use it? Smooth 4-6 drops into your skin or blend with your nighttime moisturizer. Easy.

LEVI’S® 501® – GETS CUSTOMIZED & TAPERED

The Levi’s® 501® Jean, the world’s first-ever blue jean featuring a timeless straight leg, relaxed fit and signature button fly, has earned its status as the most coveted jean in the world, lived in and loved by generations.

But for the past few decades 501® jean wearers have been customizing their jeans, most commonly tailoring the legs for a closer fit. So, in 2015, Levi’s® introduces the new 501® CT (Customized & Tapered) and continues to offer the much-loved Original 501® jean in an extensive range of sizes, colours and finishes.

The new 501® CT has a little more room at the waist so it sits slightly lower for a more relaxed fit, and the leg is tapered from the knee to the ankle.
