2 steps to healthy autumn skin

Autumn is evidently here as we see Halloween, Fireworks and Christmas paraphernalia creeping into the supermarkets, forcing us to accept summer is officially over!

Another sign that winter is looming… Our clients keep asking us why their skin looks dull and feels dry. The truth of the matter is that the summer months and our summer holidays can be very damaging to our skin.

The harsh effects of the sun, alcohol, chlorine, salt and dehydrating air-con can really take a toll on your skin. So NOW is the perfect time to do something about it and get your skin feeling and looking a million dollars before the winter months, and dare we say it…the festive season.

Step 1: Skin Care

The most important step is to fix up your skin care routine!

EVERYONE should have a good skincare routine. Without fail!

This prevents and helps to reverse the signs of ageing. Good quality skincare will assist you to thoroughly cleanse, hydrate, resurface and nourish your skin.

We ALWAYS recommend using cosmeceutical skincare as these are clinically proven to work. These products are formulated with ingredients that are delivered at the correct strength and molecular weight to penetrate your skin and treat your concerns.

High street skincare products such as Boots No 7 and Oil of Olay, by law, are not able to contain high strength ingredients. And with larger molecules, these products tend to sit on the surface of the skin rather than penetrating into the dermis, where you need them to go.

Your skincare should include the following key ingredients:

  • Vitamin C
  • Retinol
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Peptides
  • AHA’s
  • Growth Factors
  • SPF 30+

At The Body Clinic we recommend the following award-winning skincare, the leading French skincare brand Dermaceutic Laboratoire, and the USA’s Circadia Skincare by Dr Pugliese. These fantastic ranges have products that can be tailored to your individual skin needs and tackle specific skin issues head on, such as, pigmentation, ageing skin, acne, redness and dull skin. Everybody’s skincare needs are different so we offer a free skin analysis to advise which skin care products are best for each individual.

Step 2: In Clinic Monthly Facials

Scheduling a monthly facial treatment is the perfect way to make sure you achieve and improve your skin health. Advanced aesthetic facials are way more than just a luxury treat. These are not “beauty” treatments. Aesthetic facials are designed to improve your skin’s function.

Our ProFacial treatments and our signature facial the ProGlow, are multi-step treatments that can be tailored to include the most beneficial procedures and ingredients to suit your skin; promoting its overall health. Our goal is to rejuvenate and protect your skin so your natural beauty always shines through.

We all want to look younger and have radiant skin, but most people don’t bother to put in the effort needed. You should invest in your skin as a matter of routine, in the same way, that you go to the dentist for regular check-ups or get your car serviced. Good skin does not happen by chance, its achieved through quality skincare and effective facial treatments.
