The lifestyle you choose to lead can impact many things, including your skin. We’ve all heard the saying “You Are What You Eat”, and in light of recent studies on skincare, it rings true.
A number of studies have found that trying to stick to organic foods can help to improve the skin dramatically. However, trying to go “fat free” isn’t always the answer. Healthy fats, such as those found in fish, avocadoes and almonds are packed full of skin friendly ingredients that improve it’s overall condition. It has been found that skimping on these healthy fats can lead to dull, dehydrated skin.
Exercise is key to a healthy skin tone, as well as body. However, according to research, intense aerobic exercise, if done regularly, can have a detrimental effect on the facial skin. When women reach the age of 30, it is recommended by experts that resistance training, stretching and low-impact exercising such as swimming, cycling and power-walking should be concentrated on.
To help your skin’s condition improve, as well as making small changes to your diet and exercise routine, here at Beauty Haven Belfast we offer treatments which can also help. The Ecopeel Microdermabrasion (£60) is recommended to improve the appearance of fine lines, mild scarring, sun damage and uneven skin tone on the face.
Products that can help brighten your skin, as well as maintain it after any treatments are available at Beauty Haven Belfast. Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant instantly leaves the skin smoother and brighter. Also, from the Dermalogica’s Age Smart range is the Dynamic Skin Recovery; a 3-in-1 SPF daytime moisturiser which helps fight skin-aging triggers and provides broad spectrum SPF, as well as hydrate without a chalky finish.
For the body, we offer the Hydro-Active Mineral Salt Scrub (£25), a perfect treatment leading into summer in anticipation of showing a bit more skin…weather providing of course! The treatment involves an all-over scrub using mineral salts and seaweed, which polishes the skin while providing critical hydration and nourishment. You can also upgrade this treatment to the Dermalogica Perscriptive Body Treatment (£55) during which your skin is prepared by starting off with the mineral salt scrub, for your customised body mask. You can choose from “Sea Mud Pack” which purifies and detoxes, or the “Hydro Pack” which infuses the skin with moisture. Whilst you are cocooned in your mask, you can enjoy a relaxing scalp massage to ease away any tension.
To help maintain any body treatments you recieve, we have the Conditioning Body Wash and the Ultimate Buffing Cloth. The Conditioning Body Wash provides soap free cleansing, which is acid balanced to prevent over-drying of the skin.The Ultimate Buffing Cloth exfoliates gently yet efficiently. When both products are used in conjuction with each other it achieves an amazing power-cleanse with a wonderful aroma. These products and more from the Dermalogica Body and Skin ranges are available at Beauty Haven Belfast.
