Face Focus: Recommended Winter Skin Treatments
BY FIONA FOWLEY, DIRECTOR
After spending months perfecting your beach bod and summer beauty regime, it’s tempting to slack off once the wooly jumpers and winter boots come back out the wardrobe. But if there is one thing we have learnt over the years, it’s the value in upkeep – and often even making up for summer’s indulgences whether that’s been weeks basking in the sun or a few too many poolside cocktails.
Our complexions often suffer the worst when we kick back on holiday. While we religiously slather sun protection on our bodies, many of us forget to take such a diligent approach with our faces relying on the cover of that SPF 25 BB cream we applied six hours ago. So it’s little surprise we often return home to dry skin, the odd brown patch and a few more wrinkles. Not exactly the look you want post-holiday.
Winter Skin TLC
Other than giving a lecture on using sun protection on your face every day (seriously though, do it!), our best advice is to give your skin some TLC during the next few winter months to repair any damage and give you a head start on next year’s summer glow.
One of our most popular facials for revitalising the skin is the Omnilux LED treatment. This entirely natural method of light-only skin rejuvenation stimulates the body’s own natural processes to turn back the clock on aging, damaged skin while also enhancing the effect of your regular skincare regime. The treatment is instantly beneficial with clients seeing an improvement in skin tone and texture, balanced pigmentation, smoother fine lines and better hydration and lift. Omnilux has been used in medical dermatology and oncology for years for its healing powers; the light therapy stimulates cells responsible for tissue repair, causing a production of collagen which aids in tackling wrinkles and gives a soft, more youthful appearance.
Combined with other facial treatments, Omnilux is even more impressive. Clear + Brilliant, a non-invasive treatment perfect for those wanting big results without going down a surgical route, promises incredible results on aging skin. Or consider a course of IPL Skin Rejuvenation, a state-of-the-art treatment that further stimulates collagen production and the development of healthy skin cells. It’s ideal for reducing pigmentation and ageing from sun damage, giving your skin a clearer, more even looking tone and smoother texture. We feel more radiant just thinking about it!
