Suu Balm™ Moisturising Cream
Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Good Pharma
Dermatology to offer three lucky readers the
chance to win a 75ml tube of Suu Balm™, a new fast itch
relieving moisturising cream.
Itchy skin is one of the most frustrating and annoying
sensations you can have.
It can affect all parts of the body and often gets
progressively worse in the winter months as the harsh
colder and dryer weather results in the skin becoming
cracked. The transition from the cold outdoors to the
warmth inside dries the skin further leading to itchy,
flaky and inflamed skin.
So why does this happen? In simple terms your skin’s
natural lipid barrier that stops moisture escaping has
broken down. Fix that barrier as fast as possible and
avoid whatever caused the break down and you are on the
way to long term relief.
Existing itch relief creams act primarily as a
moisturiser to rehydrate the skin and prevent the itch,
but Suu Balm is different.
Formulated by Dr Tey Hong Liang, an expert
dermatologist, Suu Balm is the result of intense and
methodical research, and has been clinically developed
for people suffering from itchy, dry or sensitive skin.
Suu Balm provides rapid itch relief to break the
itch-scratch cycle to prevent further damage from
scratching and it works fast with 9 out of 10 people,
saying it relieves itch in less than five minutes
(Survey of 158 respondents, poll February 2017. Data on
The cooling, soothing benefits of Suu Balm
A dual benefit cream, the itch relief comes from
menthol, which cools the skin and blocks signals to the
brain, which causes the urge to scratch. The skin repair
comes from the high level of ceramides, an ingredient
naturally occurring in the skin which helps prevent
moisture loss, infection and reduces the frequency and
severity of flare ups.
This unique combination sets Suu Balm apart from other
How to use Suu Balm?

Tips on Easy Winter Hair Care
By celebrity hair stylist Asgar
How many people
struggle with their hair in the
winter months? Dry, lifeless and
dull all come to mind as we
battle to keep our hair healthy,
shiny and protected from the
cold, rain and recent snow.
Celebrity hair stylist, Asgar
Saboo gives you the lowdown on
how to keep your hair healthy
and happy during the winter.
Perfect winter locks
The cold winter weather can be a
shock to our hair, so I’ve
constructed the perfect
step-by-step guide to keep your
hair lustrous, fresh and healthy
Foam, rinse, repeat
Double shampooing is key! Most
people don’t actually get their
hair truly clean when washing
it, so it results in being
covered in a type of film which
leads to dullness and a lack of
shine over time.
By doubling up your shampooing,
you have an initial wash to
remove any excess dirt, and a
second to get it squeaky clean
(especially important in wet
Use a moisturising product, to
increase the shine and glow of
your hair once it has dried.
Massage the shampoo into your
scalp, covering every hair with
Deep conditioning treatment
With winter comes an unwelcome
side effect: dry coarse hair.
Rejuvenate your hair once a week
with a deep conditioning
Apply the product, leaving it in
while you relax in front of the
TV, letting even the thirstiest
strands become infused with
moisture, and finally rinse it off.
Add a generous amount of
conditioner, roughly the size of
a golf ball, and comb the
product through ensuring every
strand is covered.
Make sure you don’t leave the
conditioner in for longer than
30 minutes, as you don’t want
the product to strip any of your
natural hair oils.
Avoid any rough rubbing when
drying your hair with a towel.
This can create friction,
damaging the cuticles which can
then result in dull and lifeless
locks. Blot dry your tresses
instead to keep your hair
glowing this winter.
Leave your hair to naturally dry
as long as possible before
turning on your hair dryer. The
less heat the better, as this
flash drying can cause dryness
by removing the surface moisture
and the water that is bound to
your hair, called water of
Seal with a shine spray
Now it is time to seal your look
with a natural, moisturising
shine spray to apply to dry
Allow your hair a couple of
minutes to breath post drying,
then apply a shine serum or
spray to give that silky effect
and add a gorgeous scent
Don’t overdo the spray – you
want to keep it looking natural
whilst avoiding any risk of a
greasy appearance. Less is more
in this case; just let it shine.
