A professional approach to skin care

Professional SkinCare Sydney

When it comes to taking care of your skin, one size does NOT fit all. Here, we discuss why you may want to use a professional approach to skin care. Your skincare routine and facial treatments should be as individual as you are and tailored to your needs. It should also be influenced by environmental factors affecting your skin. At the beginning of your skin journey, our highly trained and certified dermal therapists will take you through an in depth consultation process to really understand you and your skin. We establish your primary concerns, such as Acne, pigmentation, and dryness and then understand your current skincare regime as well as your ideal desired results. We have 100’s of clients who love the attention we pay to you as an individual and your personal skin care goals

Skin Technology

Our second approach, involves our sophisticated digital skin analysis technology where we are able to see your exact skin type. It also establishes any skin conditions and concerns that the naked eye cannot see. The next stage, is to plan your individual treatment plan in ensuring your skin goals are met. As importantly, how to maintain your skin results that we achieve together.

Factors Affecting Your Skin

One factor that we really take into account, is environmental factors, such as changing seasons. Changing seasons will affect the skin in different ways. We certainly recommend at least a new skin diagnosis every 6 months. For some, changes to the seasons, can affect the skin in more subtle ways, but for others, this can mean more profound changes. Conditions can appear that you have newly acquired, or never had to deal with before. For instance, getting checked after the Summer months is highly recommended in order for you and us to evaluate any damage that the Summer sun may have done to your skin and have accumulated over the period. Autumn is also the perfect time to book your complimentary skin consultation to re-evaluate your skin needs, assess Summer damage, and to start preparing your skin to withstand the cold weather that is coming.

The Importance Of Sleep To Your Skin

One last thing to consider is never to underestimate the benefits of sleep for healthy and vibrant skin. It is easy to slip into a pattern of sleeping less and less. A late night at work here, a dinner out with friends there, and suddenly you’re averaging far less sleep that you should be. The quality and length of sleep you receive every night can have an impact on your skin’s overall health. When we sleep, our bodies recharge. Not only do our bodies recharge, our skin does too. During sleep, we heal, restore and eliminate toxins from the skin. If sleep is compromised, so is your skin’s ability to carry these essential repair mechanisms. Constantly not getting enough sleep each night causes our skin to be sluggish, damage your skin’s natural barriers and can have damaging effects on your skin.

Skin Changes Constantly

Your skin does not remain the same over time, it is constantly changing. Having a professional approach to skin care means that you always can get the best results. Changes in the weather, pollutants in the air, your sleep patterns and even the amount of water you drink. In order to really look after your skin, a professional assessment should be undertaken, at least twice a year. This way, you can be sure that your skincare regime is always the right one for you

7 Things You May Not Know About Skin and Skin Hydration

Taking care of your skin the right way is vital to naturally keeping your skin looking healthy, hydrated and smooth says our dermal therapist, Chrystal. Here she highlights 7 things you may not know about skin and skin hydration

  • Eat right with a stable and balanced diet. Constantly eating the wrong foods, not looking after yourself inside and out or using the wrong products on your skin will cause damage that can, over time, become irreversible. When it comes to the right skin care routine it’s not about picking a product off the shelf, it’s so much more! Eating right and proper hydration is an integral part of your daily skincare routine! 
  • Berry Power. Berries not only taste great, they contain antioxidants that protect your skin while helping to hydrate your body from the inside out. 
  • Don’t age prematurely. Did you know that dehydrated skin mimics the exact signs of ageing? Why look older than you have to if this can be prevented simply?
  • What skin type do you have? Skin types vary from person to person. You can have oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin. One thing that is consistent and not based on your skin type is dehydrated skin. Everyone will likely experience skin dehydration at some point. Dehydrated skin is not the same as having dry skin. Dry skin is actually caused by the lack of natural oil being produced. Dehydrated skin is caused by the lack of water in your skin. 
  • What are the signs of skin dehydration? With so many factors that cause Dehydration. It’s important to make sure you are looking for the signs that your skin is dehydrated.  Signs that your skin is dehydrated are dullness, tightness within the skin, itchiness, roughness, and flakiness, which starts the process of premature ageing 
  • What causes dehydration? Dehydration is caused by many external factors in your everyday living. The most common causes of dehydration are weather, environment, diet, caffeine consumption and lifestyle choices, all of which can result in you losing your hydration levels constantly  
  • The Power of Super Fruits. Oranges are a great source of water, fiber, antioxidants and several nutrients. The water and fiber in oranges may promote feelings of fullness, while helping to hydrate you too. This sweet treat is incredibly healthy and may provide a number of health benefits. These include vitamin C and potassium, which may boost your immune function and heart health.
