My Winter Skin Top Tips-Stratford-upon-Avon                             


1.  Stay hydrated, drink plenty water. I know it’s hard in the Winter to drink cold water so opt for warm water & herbal teas. Remember dehydrated parched skin shows up lines and wrinkles so much more on dehydrated skin.

2.  Avoid really hot baths and showers as this sucks the life out of your skin.

ACNE SKIN INSIDE & OUT

ACNE1

Acne is really hard to control and it is true ther is not one treatment or miracle product, best place to start is a good skin consultation - looking at your skin, diet and lifestyle. Acne can be hereditary and diet can be a contributing factor. Lets look at the skin inside and out.

OUTSIDE:  P acne bacteria lives on the surface of the skin, mix this with dead skin cells and sebum and you will get spots.

INSIDE:  Hormones, basically girls have a hormonal cycle so skin tends to fluctuate around this time. Boys will normally grow out of breakouts, however cystic acne is a different type and often needs medical intervention. Adult acne is fairly common these days due to our hormones, stress, diet & lifestyle.

Lets look at how the menopause can affect your skin and what you can do to help!

Hormones especially Oestrogen is very important for the development of collagen, which is a protein that provides strength and structure to the skin. As hormones/oestrogen levels reduce, your cell connective tissue becomes thinner creating fine lines & wrinkles. Low oestrogen levels can lead to less blood flowing to the epidermis (upper layer of your skin). You may notice that your skin becomes more tired looking and often becomes less elastic and dull looking. Many women also experience acne and skin pigment changes.
