Ageing of the Skin and Menopause

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

This months feature focuses on cutaneous ageing and the menopause. Let’s be honest, as a female hormones ARE BLAMED FOR EVERYTHING!, BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE THEY CAN PLAY HAVOC WITH YOUR SKIN. LONG BEFORE MENOPAUSE, HORMONAL PRODUCTION SHIFTS START SHOWING THEIR SIGNS ON YOUR FACE – TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BALANCED SKIN, you need to START TREATING YOUR HORMONAL SKIN ISSUES SAFELY, FROM THE OUTSIDE And the inside.

The menopause is the result of a decline and change in hormone levels, it typically affects women around the age of 50-53 years.

Oestrogen

When it comes to popular hormones, oestrogen takes the prize for being the most widely known and discussed. It is primarily the sex hormone but is also helps our skin and hair remain youthful and is responsible for skin thickness, skin moisture and wrinkle formation. Vitamin A, a great track record in increasing collagen and controlling pigmentation – Obaji Brightinex retinol

Estrogens can increase the Hyaluronic Acid content in the skin by maintaining fluid balance and structural integrity. They can also increase collagen production in the skin, allowing the skin to remain plump, hydrated and wrinkle-free.play a major role in the collagen and elastic network of the skin. Try daily creams and serums that contain Hyaluronic Acid, well know to increase plumpness and hydration to the skin – Inspira magic sphere serums, hydrating, firm and lift and cavies deep repair, moisturise with youth preservecream, or face sculpture Losing estrogens means losing dermal collagen production. So skin thins out, loses elasticity and sets the stage for wrinkle formation. Losing these hormones results in dehydrated, dry & itchy skinIf you struggle with dry skins make sure you are getting enough high quality omega-3. My favorite is Omega3+6+9. Taken in a capsule form. With regards to treatments, dermal fillers placed naturally and subtlety can help with plumping up the skin’s mattress, for fine creepy lines anymore on the face, neck and décolletage restylane skin vital boosters can really help and don’t volumise the area treated. My bespoke power booster fCiL which includes injections of vitamins, dermal roller to thicken the skin and a syringe of restylane vital gives a plump, firmer rejuvenated look to the fa e and neck.

. Estrogenic loss can also reduce the number of blood vessels in the skin, resulting in pale skin with a lack of nutrients traveling to the skin’s surface brighten your skin with creams and serums container no vitamin c and co-q-10 I find obaji bright alive a fantastic product.AVitamin C, which has also been shown to boost collagen production, also brightens skin and evens out skin tone Obaji bright alive, obaji c bright and Auriga flavo c serum

The decrease in oestrogen production from the ovaries leads to the many symptoms associated with the menopause particularly in the cutaneous tissue, including dryness, atrophy, fine wrinkles, poor healing, altered fat distribution and hot flushes, which can present in redness and broken capillaries to the face being present,along withoften characterized by hot flashes, red, itchy and blotchy skin which can exacerbate certain conditions like rosacea. Daily glycolic Skin products and in house mild chemical peeling can reduce redness and help to close enlarged pores, intense pulsed light treatments help to break down redness and flushing, as well as obaji rozatrol daily serum specisifically for redness and rosacea prone Skin.

You can also help with food, here are some Top Foods that provide Adequate Estrogen for all your skin needs:, start to include them into your regularly diet,Carrot, Beetroots, Potatoes, Pumkin, Peas, Alpha-Sprouts, flax seeds, sunflower and sesame. Bran, chickpeas , beans and soy.

Treatment focus Dermal Fillers

1 The science – a very fine needle is used to inject a soft filler substance into the dermis of the skin to help lift out wrinkles and folds in the skin tissue, it can be a sugar derivative Hyaluronic acid type, a calcium Based filler or a more volumising particle like po,y Latin acid which helps with facial dystrophy. An experienced practitioner can assess your needs and help pick the right type for you.

2 Benefits – who is suitable? All individuals over the age of 18, who do not have any known allergies to any of the substances and who do not have any infections at the injection site. A full medical history should always be given, medications and medical history need to be discussed also as part of patient safety.

3 How many and when can I expect to see results? Hyaluronic acid fillers give an almost immeadiate effect and get better once settled, calcium based take 12 weeks to reach maximum effects, but last longer generally, poly lactic based need minimum 3-5 treatments given 6 weeks apart, but can last 18 months to 3 years

SKIN DEEP ISSUES PART 2 ROSACEA

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin disorder, often referred to as ‘the curse of the celts’ as it predominantly effects Celtic skin types. It generally effects the cheek area chin and nose . It is a multifactorial condition that is greatly influenced by sebum in the skin, hormonal fluctuations, genetics and lifestyle.

Rosacea causes a range of symptoms, although not everyone will experience them all.
Most people with rosacea have periods when their symptoms are particularly troublesome, followed by periods when their symptoms are less so.

The main symptoms of rosacea include:

-flushing
-persistent facial redness
-visible blood vessels
-papulex and pustules
-thickened skin

Other symptoms associated with rosacea include:

-sensitive skin – burning, itching, stinging and pain
dry, rough skin
-raised red patches (plaques) on your skin
-facial swelling (lymphoedema)

Permanent damage to the face (scarring) almost never occurs in rosacea, so it can be managed and repaired with specialist help.

Factors for rosacea triggers are sun exposure, hot humid weather, emotional stress, wind, heavy exercise, alcohol, hot baths, cold weather, spicy foods, certain skin care products that contribute to excessive oil. As you can see extremes of anything can effect the person. It is not realistic to expect avoidance of some or all of these activities so it is crucial when I am assessing patients that I personalise a treatment plan for them in terms of in clinic treatments, home care maintenance and extra support and guidance especially when going on holidays .

The diagnosis for those suffering with this painful and embarrassing issue is that it is a disease of the sebaceous glands, patients often have a trigger in the early thirties due to a surge in subum production and growth in the sebaceous glands.

Typically, sebaceous glands produce excessive amounts of very destructive oil and an altered chemical composition can tat leads to inflamed sore skin, pustules, bulbous areas such as rhinophyma ( ballooning of the nose) inflammation in the cutaneous tissue due to a surplus of oil weakens the skin barrier function.

It is essential that proper creams are given speciafically to help mange the condition, I particularly get good results for my clients with obaji rozatrol for daily use, it helps to relieve the visible symptoms and it normalises skin by reducing excess oil, which ultimately leads to inflammation, in extreme conditions I will prescribe topical creams. It is very important to advise clients to protect there skin daily with a good spf protector.as it is widely documented that the premier trigger of rosacea in 81% of patients , however 88% of rosacea suffered when applying sunscreen daily report a decrease in flare ups.

Sadly for rosacea suffered this is a chronic life long disorder that requires management, support and empathy

SKIN DEEP ISSUES – Part 1 SCARS

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

IMG_6908IMG_6908IMG_6889People with skin problems are at high risk of developing psychological problems, and they can linger even after the skin gets better. Skin disorders rarely kill people, but they have a huge impact on all aspects of an individuals life. Major depression can occur as a result of chronic skin conditions , with suicidal thoughts as another consequence. Skin problems that effect our faces or visible scars are often more problematic whilst some would argue that trying to improve your appearance, skin disorder or scarring is vain. You need to take into account t that body image accounts for one quarter to a third of a persons self esteem, and self esteem is a major influence on overall psychological health. Therefore ones appearance has a huge impact on psycho.ogicalhealth. Three part series on skin issues part 1, scars, part 2, rosacea and part 3 acne.

Scars

A scar is a mark that is left on the skin after a wound or an injury to the surface of the skin has healed. They are very common and most people have at least one on their body and are part of the natural healing process

How do scars form?
When the skin is wounded and there is a break in the body’s tissues, the body produces more of a protein called collagen, as part of the healing process. Collagen builds up where the tissue has been damaged, helping to heal and strengthen the wound.
For a period of about three months or longer, new collagen continues to form and blood supply increases, causing the scar to become raised, lumpy and red. Some collagen then breaks down at the site of the wound, the blood supply reduces and the scar gradually becomes smoother, softer and paler.

Types of scars and possible treatments

1- Flat, pale scars – these are the most common type of scar and are due to the body’s natural healing process. Initially, they may be red or dark and raised after the wound has healed, but will become paler and flatter naturally over time. This can take up to two years.
Some laser and intense pulsed light treatments can help reduce the redness and improve the healing

2- Hypertrophic scars – red, raised scars that form along a wound and can remain this way for a number of years.
Again laser, intense pulsed light, dermal pen treatments can help lessen the appearance, keeping the scar moist also helps.

3-Keloid scars – these are caused by an excess of scar tissue produced at the site of the wound, where the scar grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound, even after it has healed.

Dermal pen treatments can really help , also keloid scar gels available on prescription

4-Pitted (atrophic or “ice-pick”) scars – these have a sunken appearance.

Good results with dermal filler, dermal pen, chemical peeling and certain types of lasers.

5- Contracture scars – these are caused by the skin shrinking and tightening, usually after a burn, which can restrict movement.
SpeciAlist gel bandages and in recent years hydrating dermal filler droplets to soften the skin can really help

Skin Concerns and Safety in the Sun

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

SKIN CONCERNS

This month I am going to focus of some safe sun tips and facts, most of you will no doubt be heading off for a sun filled holiday , whilst those of us with children are especially good in choosing the right creams, SPF swimsuits and all in one suits, hats , uv tents and brollys. The same can’t be said for our own concern on being safe in the sun and avoidance of sunburn. Also addressing some body concerns that when are bodies are more exposed on the beach we are more conscious off and how to remove them quickly and effectively before the holiday season.

Skin tags are small flesh-coloured or pigmented growths that hang off the skin and look a bit like warts. They’re very common,harmless, and vary in size from a few millimetres up to 5 cm wide!.
They’re usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, I new thighs or under the breasts. They can also grow on the eyelids or under the folds of the buttocks.

Why skin tags occur
Anyone can develop skin tags, but they’re particularly common in older people and people with diabetes. Pregnant women may be more likely to develop skin tags, caused by changes in their hormone levels. Some people develop them for no apparent reason.
Skin tags tend to grow where skin rubs against skin or clothing. This would explain why they also tend to affect overweight people or younger children who have excess folds of skin.
Removing skin tags can be effectively achieved by using cryotherapy (freezing off). This simple methods takes a few seconds, mild discomfort at site, normally drop off witching a week or so depending on the size of the skin tag.

Milia A milium cyst is small, white bump that typically appears on the nose and cheeks. These cysts are often found in groups, and in these cases are called milia. The cysts occur when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. Keratin is a strong protein that is typically found in skin tissues, hair, and nail cells.

Milia can occur in people of all ages, but they’re most common in newborns. They’re typically found on the face, eyelids, and

What Causes Milia?
The cause of milia in newborns is unknown. It’s often mistaken for baby acne, which is triggered by hormones from the mother.

In older children and adults, milia are typically associated with some type of damage to the skin, such as:

-blistering due to a skin condition
-burns
blistering injuries, such as poison ivy
-skin resurfacing procedures, such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing
-long-term use of steroid creams
-long-term sun damage

Treatments include:using a sterile needle to pick out the contents of the cyst
medications, such as topical retinoids (creams that contain vitamin A compounds)
chemical peels
laser ablation, which involves using a small and focused laser to destroy the cyst
diathermy, which involves using extreme heat to destroy the cysts
destruction curettage, which involves surgical scraping and cauterization to destroy the cysts
cryotherapy, which involves freezing and is the most frequently used method to destroy the cysts

SAFE IN THE SUN TIPS

FACT – According to the British Association of Dermatologists a survey carried out showed that 8 out of 10 people are failing to adequately apply sunscreen before going out in the sun.. Furthermore, 80% dont app,y sunscreen before going out in the sun or shortly afterwards. Shockingly only 35% of people surveyed would only seek shade if they were hot rather than to avoid burning! There is no doubt that health campaigns have helped in making people aware of the link between sunburn and skin cancer , but there is a great need to educate on the right sun cream and how to properly apply and reapply.

FACT – Men’s skin cancer knowledge lags behinds women’s, according to the 2016 American Academy of Dermatology survey only 56% of men knew that skin cancer can occur on areas of the skin not typically exposed to the sun, compared with 65% of women. It is so important to regularly check moles and be aware of changes or new marks or lesions to the body. Get your partner or friend to check your back and scalp as its obviously a tricky area to scan yourself. Alternatively there are many private clinics that do full body mole screening.

FACT – if sun creams feel too heavy and greasy on the face and body we are less likely to want to use them! I am a big fan of Inspira med SPF 30-50 on the face and body it’s a great anti ageing cream too so your skin looks less crepey and lined after being in the sun and there is a great ant ageing after Sun to use after which plumps and hydrates and repairs the skin after sun exposure.
Heliocare particularly the gel formulas are great for oily acne prone skin, there is nothing worse than your sun cream clogging your skin and being left with lots of spots on holiday, co es in plain and a beautiful tint that gives a you a lovely glow and illuminates your skin. High st brands like Nivea are great too especially there protect and fresh sprays which helps to cool your skin too.

Problem Areas on The Body

Problem Areas on the Body

Over the years there has been a growing trend to not only rejuvenate the face and neck but to
address specific body concerns using non surgical methods. People are aware that a smoother and more plumper face will not look right against an ageing chest area or wrinkly hands, as they are tell tale signs of the ageing process.

No matter how fit and active we are, or how carefully we watch what we eat, many of us have stubborn areas of fat that just will not go away. It may be your tummy, love handles, back, hips or even the dreaded cellulite. Liposuction works well for larger areas BUT can cause a great deal of pain and bruising. Laser lipolysis is an excellent alternative for anyone who doesn’t want the risks of surgery and has small areas of fat they want to get rid of. But a non surgical way called Mesotherapy has also been shown to be able to get rid of fat and cellulite on the stomach, thighs and buttocks as well as the dreaded bingo wings. Just like any treatment though, this seasons treatments can not be seen as a quick fix, exercise and a sensible balanced diet must be adhered to to help aid the results and more importantly maintain them. I combine Mesotherapy micro injections with body skin needling which contains fat burners, body contouring serums, draining and cellulite improving medication to help reshape and tone the areas of concern.

2. If your skin is beginning to show the tell tale signs of ageing, then it may be time to go under the needle. Sagging skin, especially on the inner upper arm is a problem area for a lot of women and the tone of the skin texture to the abdomen, due to age, weight loss, weight gain and pregnancy. I get great results with Restylane vital or derma pen with Mesotherapy body tightening Injections. So many women have slim and toned bodies but the skin simply hangs and looks very ageing. Three sessions every four weeks apart gets you amazing results.

3. Saggy baggy knees! The dreaded combination of loose skin to the thigh above the knee cap and the skin to the knee cap itself make women feel too self conscious to show their lovely legs. Or they will only wear dresses or skirts below the knee. Surgical options are a Knee lift, but will leave scaring . I get great results with dermal filler for greater amounts of volume loss it helps to fill out the area and make the skin smoother. For smaller areas light hydration filler boosters with derma pen treatments can help tighten the loose skin and make you finally feel proud to show your knees off.

4. Loss of facial fat and lines and wrinkles can be easily treated with dermal fillers, with products that can plump up your skin and even stimulate your own collagen production, giving you back the volume you had in your face in your youth without a scalpel. Fillers can also be used to re-shape your nose or give definition to your chin or jaw-line without the need for surgical implants. If
laughter lines or frown lines are making you look weathered then muscle relaxing injections can help in erasing the lines in a matter of days and giving you an instantly younger, fresher and smoother looking face.

5. Rejuvenate your chest skin and the backs of hands to get rid of dark patches of sun damage or pigmentation or improve skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. There are a number of choices available from chemical peels, microdermabrasion to laser and IPL, derma roller and meso glow that can give you back the skin of your youth.

6. As well as specific treatment options, body brushing, exfoliating and keeping skin moisturised daily will help you achieve a softer smoother younger looking skin. Invest in a good nourishing body cream and try a specific body contouring serum to help target specific areas to improve
cellulite.

Scars to the face and Body

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

This month’s focus is on treating scars to the face and body, not only do they cause great distress to those suffering with these conditions they can affect a person’s self esteem greatly. They can be caused by traumatic injury to the body, as a result of acne or other inflammatory skin disorders, due to stretch marks because of increased weight gain or pregnancy. As an experienced Aesthetic Nurse Specialist I get so much satisfaction combining my medical knowledge with my artistic flair for helping to transform a problem area on the body or face. The changes that can be achieved can be incredible for a person’s confidence and I am privileged to be able to help. Please see this month’s full page advert to see a client testimonial and before and after photos.

What is a scar?

A scar can be defined as a mark on the skin after a wound or an injury to the surface of the skin. Scars can occur inside and outside the body, from surgical procedures to acne and chicken pox trauma. When our skin becomes wounded and a break occurs in the body’s tissue, the body then produces a protein called collagen as part of the natural healing process. For up to three month’s post trauma new collagen continues to form, blood supply increases to the area. Therefore the scar may look raised, lumpy or red, following the three month recovery the collagen stops forming and the blood supply reduces and the scar will gradually smooth out and look paler. When we are younger we heal quicker and as part of the ageing process it takes us longer to heal, also some medical conditions such as diabetes and vitamin deficiency can affect our rate and efficiency to heal.

Types of Scars

The different types of scars include:
Flat, pale scars – these are the most common type of scar and are due to the body’s natural
healing process. Initially, they may be red or dark and raised after the wound has healed, but will become paler and flatter naturally over time. This can take up to two years.

Top tip – speed up the process by using Intense Pulsed Light therapy and use serums which
contain stem cells and colostrum.

Hypertrophic scars – red, raised scars that form along a wound and can remain this way for a number of years.

Top tip – help soften and flatten scars using microdermabrasion or AHA based treatments or
products. Also hydrocortisone injections.

Keloid Scars

These are caused by an excess of scar tissue produced at the site of the wound, where the scar grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound, even after it has healed.

Top tip – excellent results can be achieved with derma pen and laser treatments and
hydrocortisone injections when they initially form can help soften them.

Pitted (atrophic or “ice-pick”) scars – these have a sunken appearance.

Top tip – hyaluronic acid droplets placed into the dermis of the skin in conjunction with dermal roller or derma pen treatments can improve scarring greatly.

Depending on the type and age of a scar, a variety of different treatments may help make them less visible and improve their appearance. Cosmetic camouflage makeup can be a useful tool and of course surgical procedures can help repair.

Emotional Effects of Scarring

Scarring, particularly when it is on the face, can be very distressing, especially if you feel you are being stared at. If you avoid meeting people as a result of your appearance, you may become
socially isolated. This can lead to feelings of depression.
If you feel that your scars are making you depressed or affecting your daily activities, make sure you visit your GP as you should not suffer in silence.

Preventing or Improving Scars

It isn’t possible to prevent scars from forming, but there are things you can do to help your scar be less visible and heal better, such as immediately cleaning dirt, objects and dead tissue from wounds.

Other ways to improve scarring include:
not scratching or picking at scabs and spo20131114-154407.jpg

SKIN SURFACE PROBLEMS- Medical Facials

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Rosacea

This uncomfortable and embarrassing co diction in which the face flushes and reddens is becoming more common . One of the issues with Rosacea is that it can be triggered by any type of extreme, weather hot or cold, wind or sunlight. I often discuss with my clients how imagethey are affected in certain conditions. One client describes her symptoms as ‘ A brisk cold day, with wind and sun is the perfect recipe for my skin to flare up’.

Rosacea typically appears on the face, cheeks, nose, chin and Inbetween the eyebrows, with reports of the person feeling like they are blushing. Whilst the technology of make up to conceal redness and even out skin tone is some co fort to female suffered, what about the unfortunate males who can’t conceal?

Normally we see tiny spidery blood vessels medically recovered to as telangiectasis. However there are so many more sub-types of the condition. Some will experience red/purple deep areas to the face, some have lumps or bumps, even pustular acne. Sever symptoms can result in a bulbous red nose, even the eye area can also become dry and irritated.

Research also shows that certain foods and drinks can aggravate the con diction, alcohol, spicy foods, cheese and yogurts. Generally all food that has a certain amount of histamine should be avoided if you have Rosacea.

Certain antibiotics namely the tetracycline family can be effective , com pounds similar to vitamin A, skin peels, treatment pads and creams, intense pulsed light and laser can all be helpful tools. Sunscreen and a hat is the best deterrent from avoiding flare ups in the hotter months, and avoiding being out in extreme weather for long periods can also help where possible.

Eczema

According to research about 10 % of the population suffers some form of eczema, with the most com on type known as ‘ectopic eczema’ . This inflammatory skin condition can present with itchingg, redness and scaling..repeated rubbing and scratching of the areas affected can result in clients suffering with hypopigmentation ( white patches of skin) and also thickening of the skin which are both cosmetically undesired results

An important factor when dealing with eczema is to be aware of known allergens, patch testing where a sample of suspected irritants are applied to the body. After several days the skin response is noted and allergies are then diagnosed and avoided. Y the patient.
It is very common for clients to carry out there own online allergy testing , and whilst some are able to single out trigger products some have poor predictive value. So it’s better to have this test done by a qualified dermatologist. Strong chemicals within cleaning and washing detergents are often blamed as culprits , some would say there eczema is more manageble when using less chemically laden products.

The backbone of good eczema care is topical emollients which are regularly applied, in some cases a topical steroid cream can be a useful addition when symptoms have flared up

MEDICAL FACIALS

While the temperature is still chilly and we are living with heating drying out our skins the following treatments have been devised by Perfect skin .For those first time clients wanting to try something stronger than there usually treatment regime, for younger clients wanting to prevent ageing signs and for exsisting clients wanting to enhance and maintain results with dermal fillers and muscle relaxing Injections

PERFECT SKIN 2016

june-2015

Peels are the backbone of good skincare and are often overlooked and not promoted enough, yet they can do so. Much to improve the quality of skin including the tone, texture and elasticity for all skin types. There is a peel for everyone!

Exercise regime, sit down and make a plan on how you will fit in 3 hours a week minimum to help you mange your stress, skin and health conditions, look and feel better inside and out, anything from brisk walking, sports, swimming or personal training, many people dread the gym, so make it fun and applicable to your lifestyle, work and family balance.

Refresh your skin, after the long cold winter months, our skin looses moisture quickly , skin can look dull and lifeless. The constant change of temperatures from our vessels constricting in the co.d to dilating when we go inside to the warm can cause redness, broken veins and dilated pores. Treat your skin to a moisturisers packed full of hyaluronic acid and vitamins, chooses treatments like meso glow vitamins injected into the skin , Restylane vital drop,etc, dermal roller to repair and intense pulsed light to calm red stressed skin.

Follow up all the ‘to do’ jobs, whether it’s starting a fitness, healthy eating or stop smoking regime. To getting rid of unsightly blemishes or lumps and bumps on the skin with cryotherapy treatments. It’s time for you to set your health and beauty goals

Eating to feel better is a must, it’s amazing that people still don’t link feeling better physically and mentally with what they put inside their bodies. Vitamin b12 injections can really help fight fatigue and lift your mood to get motivated. I also love mineral supplements , sometimes the quality of certain fruit and vegetables does not have the full nutrients our bodies crave so adding them to our diet can really help.

Concentrate on your main skin or health problem,
By focusing on one concern, such as wrinkles or dark spots, you’ll get the best results. Look for a treatment or product that targets your concern. There are two reasons for this:
-No product or treatment can treat all signs of skin aging.
-Using more than one anti-aging product in a few days or weeks can irritate the skin, making you look older. When using skin are products less is definitely more.

Treat the décolletage( which encompasses the neck, shoulders back and chest)and hands, ladies often neglect these two areas – which are tell tell signs of aging, I encourage my clients to extend there face and neck skincare regime to the areas also. Remember intense pulsed light, meso glow and hydrating booster vital Restylane drops are amazing. Furthermore CryoPen can help with unsightly age spots and red spots known as Campbell de Morgan.

Skin care products throw out any out of date bottles as this could be harming not helping your skin. Generally SPF protectors last a year after opening
Have realistic expectations: Exaggerated promises, such as look 10 years younger overnight or quickly reduces all signs of aging, are too good to be true. It’s important to remember that anti-aging skin care products deliver modest results. You cannot get the results of a facelift from a cream Read product labels and select a product that offers all of the following:

• Hypoallergenic (The product can still cause an allergic reaction, but there is less risk.)
Non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic (does not cause acne)

Kissable lips, treat your lips to the ultimate built in Vaseline , hyaluronic acid fillers are a fabulous way of given definition to thin weak lips, also helping dry cracked lip sufferers. In my practice the majority of clients who use fillers to help the mouth area , you would never guess, naturally enhanced.

Invest in new make up, brushes if you have had them for a long time and a good brush cleaner. I see lots of bacterial skin infections due to dirty make up brushes, especially those suffering with acne symptoms.

Night time makeover for inside and out, I know it’s boring but we all need good quality and enough sleep to repair our bodies and minds. Remember the most important time of time to help skin is before bed, as we sleep the creams, serums and repair solutions are at there best so ensure you are thorough with your regime to get the results you desire.
