Healthy skin: Post summer skincare
Achieving healthy, radiant skin is a journey that requires a holistic approach. From nourishing your body from within with the right food to practicing a consistent skincare routine and treatments contributes all to your complexion. But one crucial element often overlooked in this journey is the use of SPF.
Healthy skin reflects your overall well-being. It’s a harmonious interplay of factors that extend beyond just looks. Factors like proper hydration, balanced nutrition, regular exercise, and quality sleep collectively contribute to a glowing complexion. When your body is well-nourished and well-rested, your skin can better repair and regenerate itself, resulting in a vibrant and youthful appearance.
To maintain healthy skin, one crucial step you should never miss is to protect your skin with SPF from the sun’s rays. UV rays can cause significant damage, including sunburn, premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and even skin cancer.
Sunburn isn’t just painful; it’s a visible sign of skin damage caused by excessive UV exposure which we all should avoid. UV rays accelerate the aging process by breaking down collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. Regular use of SPF helps preserve your skin’s elasticity, minimizing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, which results in your skin thriving.
Protect yourself from UV rays
Protecting yourself from UV rays is also crucial in preventing potential development of skin cancer as SPF acts as a barrier against the harmful rays that can trigger genetic mutations that leads to skin cancer.
SPF guards against hyperpigmentation, maintaining a more even skin tone as it prevents the overproduction of melanin triggered by sun exposure, reducing the appearance of dark spots.
Make sure that you protect your skin even on cloudy days as UV rays are present then as well. A broad-spectrum sunscreen shields you from UVA and UVB rays regardless of the weather, ensuring consistent protection. Integrate SPF application as a non-negotiable step in your daily skincare regimen easily just like cleansing and moisturizing.
Healthy skin is a culmination of mindful choices that prioritize your well-being inside and out and by embracing sunscreen as a vital ally in your skincare routine, you’re ensuring that your skin remains resilient, youthful, and protected for years to come.
How can we help
We offer a selection of treatments for you to take care of your skin post the summer holidays.
Picosure laser or InMode Lumecca IPL can help you remove any pigmentations such as sunspots. If you just want a boost in hydration, we can do a HydraFacial for you or a combination treatment of HydraFacial with Lumecca IPL which is called a HydraBright treatment and will cleanse your skin whilst evening out your skin tone.
Removal of skin imperfections such as age spots, melasma, pigmented lesions and freckles using PicoSure laser is done by delivering extremely short pulses that creates shockwaves of light known as PressureWave that penetrates the deep layer of the skin. The pulse breaks the pigment particles, that make age spots. Allowing your body to naturally absorb them. Therefore, resulting in the elimination of these age spots, pigments or melasmas.
Depending on individual needs we can also offer Lumecca IPL for the removal of age spots, pigments and melasma. Lumecca uses intense pulse light technology rather than laser-like PicoSure and could suit your personal needs better. Which one to use is best established after a consultation at our clinic.
