The Low Down on Skin Care

Are you confused by all these brands offering ‘radiance’, ‘glow’, ‘smooth skin’, ‘reduction in pores’ etc… ?
Does it feel like everything you try is the same?
Are you fed up because nothing seems to work?

Then read this:

Skincare is simple as long as you follow these 4 steps.

1. CLEANSE:

Daily Cleanse: Remove the daily debris that accumulates on your skin by using a good cleanser. When I say ‘good’ cleanser – I mean one that removes grime & make-up without drying out the skin. When you’ve washed your face with it – it should not feel like your skin is tight, dry and rough.

We love: ZO Offects Hydrating Cleanser (£50 for 3 months) and iS Clinical Cleansing Complex (£50 for 3 months).

Deep Cleanse (every 1-3 months): treat your skin to a regular cleansing facial or chemical peel.

Try our Fire & Ice Red Carpet facial (voted celebrity facial of the year & featured in numerous magazines): £180 per treatment.

For a deeper cleanse, try our Neostrata Peel System which brightens, tightens and reduces pores: £180 per peel.

2. TREAT

Treatments can be targeted at specific skin problems.

For example, if you have:

Acne: retinol, benzoyl peroxide and antibiotic preparations are often used.
Pores: retinol, hydroxy acids, glycolic & TCA peels etc are often used.
Wrinkles: retinol, hydroxy acids and many other skincare ingredients are used to stimulate skin regeneration & production of collagen.
Pigmentation: hydroxyquinone, kojic acid, azelaic acid, mandelic acid are frequently used to treat skin pigmentation.

For a daily treatment that is easy to use, try: ZO Daily Power Defense: £50 for 3 months

3. MOISTURIZE

Many of the treatments that we use on the skin can feel quite drying. Moisture is important to the skin barrier function. I often apply a moisturizer on top of my skin treatment at night- and this means I wake up with soft hydrated skin.

We love: ZO Ommerse Overnight Recovery Cream (£60 for 3 months) & Neostrata Bio-hydrating cream (£50 for 3 months)

4. PROTECT

No skincare regime is complete without SPF. The damage caused by UVA & UVB is irrefutable. I always advise clients to use a factor 50 SPF – particularly if they are using retinol, having peel treatments or travelling abroad.

Take a look at the images below.

These are twins: one twin worked as a gardener outdoors, never using SPF and the other twin worked as a chef indoors, protected from the sun. Look at the difference in their skin quality, pigmentation problems, wrinkles and risk of skin cancer.

To protect your skin from the sun – We love: Heliocare Factor 50 gel: £30 for 3 months. It is non-greasy and can easily be used underneath make-up.

I hope you’ve found this useful 🙂
