Skin Care

Why do we need to look after our skin ?

What happens to our skin as we age?

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and is made up of numerous layers.
When we are born we have a beautiful clear dewy soft skin that relatives just want to pinch 🤏. This is because the collagen cells within our skins structure are full and plump like fresh grapes, it is this structure that is the scaffolding to our skin and holds it up and taught.
From our mid 20’s the deterioration process commences and our collagen and elastin within the skin starts to dry out and shrink causing a fine lines around the mouth and eyes, , dry, and loose crepe appearance with a lack of firmness and tone.
As we continue to age our skin can become dull, rough or change in pigmentation colour.
The cellular regeneration slows down meaning that the older cells are not renewed as quickly as they once were. Dead skin cells and dried out collagen cells settle in the lower layers of our skin like shingle on a beach where they can cause bacteria to breed leading to break outs in our 40’s and 50’s
Other factors that effect our skin are our health, our diet, our fluid intake, alcohol consumption, skin care products, and exposure to the elements .
By protecting our skin from an early age against free radicles and sun damage we can help the ageing process and keep our skin healthy, bright and rejuvenated.
By having a regular facial using the UltraPro complex machine or the Chromapeel microdermabrasion machine you can rejuvenate and lift, and brighten your skin, regenerate the collagen cells, improve circulation, reduce dark circles and puffy eyes, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne and rosacea.
