Habits of people with great skin.

Habits of people with great skin.

With consistency, the perfect skincare routine will work for you all year-round but have you ever wondered what those people with great skin use in their skincare routine or what, if any skincare treatments they have?

Sun Protection definitely comes top of the list. Proper UV protection is by far the most important step in any skincare routine, all year round but especially during the summer when UV rays are at their strongest.SPF should be applied every day to areas that are exposed such as the face, neck, chest, ears, and hands.

Correctly cleanse your face & neck. This might sound obvious but it is important when cleansing to ensure you are cleansing right into the hairline ( an area often overlooked and prone to breakouts) and include the neck area. We recommend double cleansing as the second cleanse removes any last traces of make up and debris. A foaming cleanser is great for an oily/ combination skin and a cream/ gel cleanser typically better for a sensitive/ dry skin.

Retinol, yes or no? For most people yes as long as it is introduced slowly. Retinol has many benefits for the skin, it minimises fine lines and wrinkles, increases collagen production, improves elasticity, improves acne and brightens the skin.

Retinol can however cause sensitivity for some people, symptoms include irritation, dryness, burning, redness and itching. Always seek advice from a qualified aesthetician before purchasing retinol, we highly recommend incorporating Vitamin A into your regime starting with a low level Vitamin A moisturiser to allow the skin to acclimatise.

Use Non Comedogenic Products. Using products that will not clog the pores is a no brainer. Jane Iredale mineral make up is one to think about. Jane Iredale products are clean, vegan and cruelty free make up products that will nourish and protect your skin.

Digestive problems can cause skin problems so a healthy diet will help you maintain a healthy and radiant skin. Look for foods high in anti oxidants such as broccoli, carrots, spinach, beetroot, avocado, dark chocolate, strawberries, blueberries to name but a few. Antioxidants protect your cells against free radicals. (The body generates free radicals in response to environmental insults such as UV rays, smoke and air pollution). Our favourite supplements from Advanced Nutrition Programme such as Vitamin A, C and D can be incorporated into a healthy diet.

We all get scars or other marks such as age spots, high colour and thread veins. There are a variety of reasons for this such as hormonal imbalances, acne or sun damage. Topical treatments do work to fade or completely remove these skin concerns. Skin Rejuvenation laser treatments are very effective and will also decrease the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks. Laser treatments can also treat loss of skin tone and produce a clear, healthy and more youthful complexion. ( A patch test is required prior to your first treatment).

To keep your skin looking its best, approach your skincare routine like a ritual.
