We share our holistic insight and help you choose the best treatment plan for you.

Healthy and balanced diet with plenty of vitamins

Look after your skin from the inside by maintaining a healthy and well-balanced diet. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, nuts, seeds, lentils and beans. There’s research to suggest that Vitamin C and cutting down on unhealthy fats, processed or refined carbohydrates could promote younger-looking skin.Carrots, tomatoes, apricots and blueberries are thought to be friendly to the skin as well as green leafy vegetables.

Hydrated skin
Ways of keeping your skin hydrated can include: drinking water; moisturising straight after a bath or shower and regularly throughout the day; limiting your bath and shower time and using warm rather than hot water; avoiding air-conditioning and too much hot/chlorinated water; using a gentle cleanser; avoiding skin products containing soap and alcohol; use a humidifier and wearing a scarf and gloves in cold weather.

Exercise and reducing stress
Stress can cause sensitive skin and trigger acne. It can disrupt sleep, leaving you tired, rundown and irritable. Reducing stress and keeping a healthy state of mind can have a dramatic impact on the health of your skin. Running, swimming or yoga are great stress busters, helping to keep your skin looking and feeling more vibrant.

Avoiding nicotine and alcohol
Smoking ages your skin prematurely, contributes towards wrinkles around the lips and eyes and a leathery complexion, evidence suggests. It depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients and reduces its natural elasticity by damaging collagen (a protein that supports skin strength). Alcohol dehydrates your skin, leaving it looking older and tired. Drinking too much alcohol is also thought to deprive the skin of vital vitamins and nutrients. Drinking heavily, over time, can cause the skin condition Rosacea. When drinking alcohol, try to stick within recommended limits and drink water in between alcoholic drinks.

Sleep, sun and products

Too little sleep makes your skin look older and tired. Make sure you get enough sleep to keep your skin looking healthy. Wash off make-up before going to bed to reduce the risk of bacteria building up on your skin.

Reducing sun exposure

Exposure to UV light speeds up the natural ageing process of your skin. Protect your skin — and prevent future wrinkles — by limiting the time you spend in the sun. Try to wear protective clothing as well as a wide-brimmed hat. Using a high SPF suncream can keep you looking younger for longer. Sun lotion should be renewed every two hours and more often when you’re in the water. Avoid midday sun and wear protective clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat. Discard sunscreen that is past its expiration date, has been exposed to high temperatures or has obvious changes in colour or consistency.

Using the right skincare products for you

Use a moisturiser that fits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturiser that contains SPF.
