How to have even skin tone – without make-up.

The New Year is often a time for an overhaul of our health and wellbeing. This very much applies to the way we look, which can often have a considerable effect on the way we feel. One of the aesthetic trends set to be prominent in 2020 is the seeking of fresh, even-toned skin. Many of my patients have previously tried to cover up uneven tone with make-up and concealers. Over-the-counter pigmentation correctors are heavily marketed – and expensive – but are of limited benefit, as they can legally only contain a very limited amount of active ingredients. At BrightNewMe […]

Is your skin often red?

Rosacea can affect both the skin’s appearance and texture. It is easily recognisable if the skin is visibly pink or red in colour, however sometimes it can present as transient redness, such as flushing with spicy food or alcohol. Quite often with rosacea, there is also an increased number of visible telangiectasias – these usually appear on the central part of the face, in a symmetrical distribution. There is no specific diagnostic test for the condition, nor is there any ‘cure’ as such. However, its symptoms can be managed with lifestyle modifications, an appropriate skincare regime, prescription-grade topical products and […]

Facial Redness

Do you suffer with facial redness, especially across the cheeks and nose? If so you may have Rosacea (pronounced “row-zay-sha”). This often starts with a tendency to flush and frequently occurs in fair skinned people aged 40-60. Whilst it’s more common in women, when it occurs in a male patient it tends to be more severe. In addition to generalised redness, those with rosacea often experience a burning or stinging sensation, and the skin in the area can be particularly sensitive, especially to sunlight. Patients may describe trigger factors such as spicy food, alcohol, stress, exercise, wind, a change in […]
