Why Your Cosmetic Treatments Should Have Changed

In the present day most of us strive for general wellbeing, looking after ourselves both physically and psychologically. As the years pass we seek what we might call ‘successful ageing’. When it comes to our physical appearance we know that, rightly or wrongly, we are often judged on how we look, but more importantly we understand how our appearance can affect our general levels of confidence, and how we feel about ourselves. The majority of my patients aren’t trying to look 20 years younger, but they do want to look great for their age – they want to look less […]

Successful Ageing

Successful ageing is about our general well-being in older age – mentally, physically and also socially. I believe that looking after ourselves in this way is just as important as looking after our skin. Here are my top 7 tips for successful ageing- 1. Have a positive attitude in life. 2. Exercise regularly. 3. Learn a new skill. 4. Find ways to reduce the stress in your life. 5. Eat healthily. Did yesterday’s meals fit into this food pyramid? 6. Seek & give social support. 7. Keep up to date with the modern world – adapt, be current and relevant […]

Five ways your moisturiser may be harming your skin

Many patients I see use moisturisers to try to stave off wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Frequently, however, I hear a complaint that they don’t work and that the skin feels dry and dull despite adhering to a strict moisturising regime, often with expensive products. Why do so many complain of sensitive skin, when the incidence of true allergy is much lower? Why do many people suffer from spots well beyond teenage years? It is easy to misdiagnose rough skin for dryness and then start to moisturise, whereas exfoliation is what the skin really needed. Read on to learn […]

What Are Antioxidants and Why Do We Need Them?

The word ‘Antioxidant’ is often seen in beauty magazine articles, and most people will be aware that they are ‘a good thing’. But how much do we really know about what they are, why we need them, and how do we get them? To begin with, think of a freshly cut apple, left exposed for just a matter of minutes, and how it quickly browns. That is the process of oxidation, the oxygen in the atmosphere reacting with the cells on the inside of the apple. The cells in our bodies are designed to deal with oxidation, but 1-2% of […]

My top tips for facial skin care

I’m often asked for my recommendations on helping to maintain great looking skin. Here are 7 of my top tips- 1 – Never use solid soap (which is alkaline and disrupts the normal acid pH of the skin). 2 – Exfoliate twice a week. This will encourage the dead skin cells to slough off and increase production of new, healthy cells. 3 – Don’t over-moisturise, as this can cause dead cells to be retained on the surface of the skin, creating a dull skintone. In fact, habitual moisturising can actually dry the skin out, because the moisture-producing cells slow down […]
