With the prospect of enjoying the festivities to the full this year, our Aesthetics and Skincare Expert, Amish Patel, shares his professional tips to prep your skin for the party season ahead.
As the clocks go back and the evenings draw in, we start to look forward to the social aspect that the new season brings; a chance to dress up and catch up with friends and family, all of which we’ve sorely missed due to lockdown etc. The key to having glowing skin ahead of those significant diary event dates is preparation.
The stress of the past 18 or so months has probably taken a toll on your skin. Taking time to give your skin some TLC now will ensure your skin is looking radiant come Christmas. One fast-track way to give your skin a complete refresh is to opt for a facial. At our clinic, we offer various facials, including the iS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing Treatment, which has zero downtime but offers a refresh to the upper skin dermal layers.
Our iS Clinical Prodigy Peel Pro facial is the perfect prep for your skin ahead of the party season for those clients looking to tackle superficial fine lines, skin texture, and pigmentation at a deeper level. Still, as with all chemical peels, you need to allow time for the treatment to take effect and for the renewed skin to settle to get the full benefit of that glow!
Not all face creams are equal! We often get asked why we choose to stock only a handful of products in our Online Shop, and the reason being is because we know they work! Using professional skincare products might seem more expensive at the outset than high street brands, but the results are always going to be more impressive. Factors such as investment in research, the ingredients featured, and crucially, the formulations are all going to make a difference to the results you can see in your skin. If you are unsure of which products to buy, then get in touch with our expert team, and we can help you choose the right products for your skin’s needs.
Plump, dewy skin is your ‘go to’ desirable and even more so with the ongoing trend to showcase natural make-up free skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin. Its hydrating, lubricating and elastic properties give our skin plumpness. The dermal fillers we use at the clinic are made from a ‘gel-like’ hyaluronic acid, which helps plump the skin and restores the face volume, which we lose as we age.
Your skin can often tell stories about the lifestyle you lead. Drinking alcohol can leave your skin looking dehydrated, and eating too much sugar can lead to spot outbreaks. Of course, hormones, health and genetics can come into play but being mindful of your diet, cutting down on alcohol consumption and keeping your skin and body hydrated by drinking plenty of water are all excellent steps towards brighter, clearer and healthier skin. Adding a few Super Foods to your diet will also help your skin.
