Radiant healthy skin: how to brighten up your complexion
31 Oct 2017
Radiant healthy skin is something we all desire. How can we achieve radiant skin both at home and in the salon? For summer we are all looking for those little miracle solutions, ones which we can add to our existing routines with no mess or fuss!
Radiant healthy skin treatments
Radiant skin is skin which has a healthy circulation, no build up of dead skin and a smooth plump texture. A youthful and bright complexion is achieved through three different in-office treatments.
1. Remove dead skin
The best way to remove dead skin is either through a gentle ablative treatment such as microdermabrasion. Alternatively, you may want to consider a more intensive treatment like a chemical skin peel. Skin peels can be adjusted and progressively get stronger as your skin becomes conditioned.
2. Increase circulation and boost collagen
Skin needling and Dermapen is still one of the most affordable and effective means to improve skin circulation. It also manages to stimulate collagen production, by creating “micro-injuries”. The treatment ensures that the skin kicks in with its natural repair mechanism and in so doing builds new collagen and elastin. As an added benefit, skin needling repairs and refines the pores and skin texture.
Skin brightening from the inside out
For skins that are a little lacklustre and deficient of any type of healthy glow, we suggest you use an antioxidant-rich vitamin C serum. One of our personal favourites is SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. It offers added photo-protection, helps safeguard the skin against sun damage while brightening the complexion too.
Here’s our review:
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic comes in a brown glass dropper. The liquid serum is an intense yellow colour, but on the application, it disappears into the skin in seconds. As with all serums, this one needs to be applied on clean skin and under your moisturiser followed by an SPF.
SkinCeuticals products are not fragranced and have a rather medical smell. After just a few applications you could see a more radiant and “alive” looking skin. After a month I have to tell you … we are hooked!
SkinCeuticals is a medical skin care range and as such, they have very high percentage actives which deliver amazing results. The price tag should come as no surprise as you ultimately get what you pay for, in this case … beautiful and radiant skin!
In conclusion, the best way to see results is to invest in your skin with regular treatments and skin care.
