We all want beautiful skin, but what is beautiful skin? When we ask this question to our clients - most say something like:
"beautiful skin looks healthy, is smooth, clear, wrinkle free and firm and therefore looks younger"
That doesn't sound too challenging, but if you have sustained sun damage from the sun’s harmful rays this is a huge problem as you age. Sun damage to the skin is the main cause of the fine lines, wrinkles and age spots that you may already see or will eventually see on your face. But you can fight back with professional skincare that contain active ingredients (cosmeceuticals) that help repair the damage done by the sun, so that you look younger and more radiant.
The secret to having beautiful skin is living a healthy life and using great skincare that protects it from the sun and reduces the affects of ageing. We can help you understand your skin and recommend the most appropriate cosmeceutical range for it, so that you always look your very best.
Understanding your skin
Typically, as you age the collagen and elastin fibres in your skin degrade, plus the quality of your body's hyaluronic acid is reduced. As a result your skin becomes less elastic, rougher and often dryer. Some of the contributing factors cannot be changed such as your individual genetic code and biological clock, but changes to lifestyle habits and skin care routines can make a huge difference to skin problems.
Using our skin analysis system we can show you the condition of your skin and then recommend appropriate skin care products and skin treatments to reduce the signs of ageing and help you look your best.
Sun damage - your biggest fight
Smoking and drinking, excessive sun exposure and stress, can all speed up your biological clock. However, of all these ageing factors, sun damage poses the greatest threat. In fact, sun damage is thought to be responsible for 80% of skin ageing.
Without sun damage, you would probably not develop wrinkles until you were in our 60s. So if you don't already - use sun protection everyday as part your skincare routine.
