The importance of Skin Hydration
Hydration is essential to keep your skin glowing, plump and looking refreshed. How hydrated your skin is comes down to how much hyaluronic acid is in your skin. Hyaluronic acid holds water that makes your complexion appear healthier and more vibrant.
Dehydrated skin can feel rough, flaky, and tight. It can also lead to other skin problems such as itching, inflammation, and acne.
Keeping skin hydrated and healthy is relatively easy. Drinking plenty of water and using moisturizers and lotions is a good start, and following a healthy diet and maintaining good lifestyle habits will serve you well long term.
Protecting Our Skin in Summer
Most of us have a skincare regime, and sun protection should be up there close to the top if not the number one thing you do in your routine. When you spend extended periods of time in the sun without sunscreen, the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause damage. This damage can lead to visible signs of aging like dark spots and wrinkles down the line.
The importance of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that plays a vital role in maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, which are important for bone growth and mineralization. It also contributes to a healthy immune system, reducing the risk of infections and autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D has been linked to the prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. It is also known to improve mood and decrease the risk of depression.
So, while we need Vitamin D naturally from the Sun, we also have to be careful about our sun exposure. The ideal range of Vitamin D in a healthy person is between 1000 and 2000 IU daily. When put into normal terms, this works out at around 20-30 minutes of sun exposure – without sunscreen – 3 times a week for fair-skinned individuals.
Remember, wearing sunscreen does NOT put you at risk for Vitamin D deficiency.
How can we stop the signs of ageing for you?
There’s only so much that skin care products can do for our skin, right? Well there are other proven ways to hydrate your skin, create fullness and definition and stimulate natural collagen generation for younger, healthy, firmer skin while reducing and eliminating wrinkles.
We can offer these solutions and treatments in Refine Clinic, that are popular with our patients throughout the summer months.
Restore skin hydration
Hyaluronic hydroboosters, such as Profhilo, are a type of skincare treatment that have become increasingly popular in recent years. These treatments hydrate and plump the skin by providing it with a boost of moisture.
The main ingredient in Hydroboosters is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated and healthy. By adding this ingredient to skincare products, manufacturers are able to create a product that is specifically designed to hydrate the skin.
One of the benefits of Hydroboosters is that they are suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. They are lightweight and easily absorbed, and they won’t leave your skin feeling greasy or heavy.
Hydroboosters can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By hydrating the skin, they can plump up the skin cells, which can make lines and wrinkles less noticeable.
We are confident that Hydroboosters are a great investment for anyone looking to improve the hydration and overall health of their skin.
Replenish collagen and slow down the ageing process
The décolletage is the area that encompasses the neck and the chest, and is often forgotten when it comes to skincare. Even the most strict routines with sunscreen never completely cover this area. An easy way to protect the décolletage is by ensuring you take your sunscreen all the way down to your chest area. Vitamin C will help with pigmentation while products with ceramides will repair the skin’s natural barrier and lock in hydration.
Lanluma is Refine Clinic’s newest product. It can reduce wrinkles and the appearance of veins the back of your hands and can also revitalise your neck and chest area. It’s collagen stimulator works in a totally different way to traditional dermal fillers, as it is a distinctive collagen treatment, which reduces lines, wrinkles and folds in a gradual and subtle way. This helps to replenish the body’s own collagen and restore lost volume.
Open your Pores and restore a Youthful look
The Perfect Peel will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. This peel is suitable for all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The peel is a mixture of minerals and vitamins and also a key anti-ageing ingredient, Glutathione.
Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, and will hydrate your skin beautifully. It goes deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-ageing answer to premature wrinkles.
Our bodies naturally produce glutathione. But, as we age we lose it due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress, and of course, the aging process itself.
The perfect peel promotes new collagen stimulation, and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The overall tone, texture and pigmentation of your skin is significantly improved.
