Time for change?
At this time of year we often vow to eat more healthy, exercise and generally look after ourselves better. We try and do these things when all we really want to do is nurture ourselves, keep warm and eat comfort food. I mean, who really likes eating salad in the winter? Your skin is no different. During these winter months our skin often changes, we have the central heating on more and when we do venture outside the cold harsh weather can result in dry dull looking skin. Just making a few changes to your skincare routine will ensure your skin continues to look great throughout these winter months. Ok so we all use moisturiser but is it enough for your skin? Does your skin look as good as when you first started using it? You still need an SPF, even in these winter months levels of UVA are still significant enough to age our skin. You need to wear an SPF all year round if you're serious about protecting your skin from UV ageing effects. This is the time to introduce a serum/ concentrate into your skin care routine (if you don’t already) as well as your moisturiser and SPF. I describe serums to my clients as underwear and your moisturiser as clothes and you really wouldn’t wear one without the other! Exfoliation once a week will ensure your skin stays smooth and bright and why not pop a mask on the skin and leave overnight for really intense results? If all this seems too much trouble then let us take care of you... After a thorough skin care consultation will will advise on the products and treatments that will work best for your skin. A popular facial at this time of year is the Katherine Daniels Skin Perfecting Anti Oxidant Treatment. This double mask treatment is packed full of powerful superfoods and is rich in anti oxidants to boost collagen and elastin production. Our exfoliating mask in this treatment contains fruit acids and enzymes of pineapple, papaya and kiwi and our Anti Oxidant Mask in this treatment will bring hydration, luminosity and will even out pigmentation. It is rich in Vitamin C which is derived from Acerola cherries which have 13 times more Vitamin C than an orange! To give you skin a kick start during these winter months a course of 4 can do wonders for your skin! Surely its time to make these changes and your skin will really thank you for it . Hope to see you soon Helen xx
