5 Tips for More Radiant Skin

Tip 1: Regularly apply an effective moisturiser, use skincare products specifically designed for certain areas of your face.
Adequate hydration of your skin to ‘plump out’ the skin cells doesn’t just come from drinking water alone. A diet rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids can help. A good quality moisturiser can ensure that your skin remains adequately hydrated and looking as ‘fresh’ and ‘full’ as possible. It’s also important to invest in products specifically designed for certain areas of the face – for example, the delicate area around the eyes.

Tip 2: Remove make-up and cleanse your face every night.
Did you know that by not completely removing make-up every night, you are making it more difficult for your skin to repair itself overnight? Give your skin a chance to breathe and repair by cleansing properly in the evening, before bed, every night.

Tip 3: Gently exfoliate – at your own peril!
As we age, our body’s ability to shed old skin cells reduces, leading to dull-looking skin caused by a build up of these old cells. Gentle exfoliation of the skin can help to reduce this build up of old cells, revealing fresh skin beneath. However, exfoliation using harsh scrubs can actually tear your skin and contribute to acne flare ups. To prevent this, look for products with exfoliating ingredients like Glycolic Acid, which works to gently exfoliate dead skin away. Alternatively, try a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or hydradermabrasion treatment for a more intensive and effective exfoliation experience.

Tip 4: Be careful with toners, and skincare products in general!
Some skin toners can dry the skin out and upset the pH balance of the skin. Effective cleansing and moisturising is enough, you might not require to use an additional toner.

It’s not just toners that can affect the skin though – some skincare products can contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin. Invest in quality products that have been formulated by dermatological experts. If you aren’t sure whether your skin is suited to particular products or treatments, why not consider an in-depth skin care analysis session at an aesthetic clinic. They can carry out a detailed analysis of your skin health and condition. Then, tailor skincare treatments/recommend products most suited to your unique skin.

Tip 5: Wear SPF every single day, come rain or shine.
Few people realise the significant impact that sun damage has on the natural ageing process of their skin. Wear a good quality, high factor sunscreen that protects from both. A good quality sunscreen should be worn every day. Even when it is cloudy or you are indoors, as UVA rays can penetrate glass.
