We get it - skincare can be addictive. The search for the next bigger, better, stronger product that will lead to even more amazing results can be intoxicating. But packing too much into your routine and endlessly juggling products can cause problems. Inconsistency and overloading your skin with powerful ingredients means you risk negating the benefits your products should be giving you - or worse still, creating even more issues for your skin.
At 33Dowanhill we pride ourselves on listening to our clients and what their skincare concerns are. That is why we have decided to add a Microcurrent Signature Facial to our treatments. Having travelled to London to try this treatment for ourselves we are so excited to offer it to our clients here in Glasgow.
So what does it it actually do and why should you consider it?
As Summer draws to a close, now is the time to take a step back (or closer to the mirror) and have a good look at your skin - were you as diligent with the SPF as you thought? Have you noticed any changes in your skin?
One of the questions that we get asked most regularly is “What is the perfect skincare routine?”.
Unfortunately we have a bit of bad news….. there is no perfect skincare routine that will work for everyone. SORRY. Every person has different skin, different concerns, different requirements even different time constraints that will impact what products they use...
I can’t deny it. I LOVE acids. I use differing strengths and types every day. Apart from cleansing it is the one step that I think can make the most dramatic difference to your skin’s appearance and texture.
So unless you have been living under a rock you will have by now fully embraced the use of retinol products or at least will have hear murmurings about this skincare heavy weight. If you want to avoid dull, dusty, Miss Havisham territory you need to get on it.
So my official line on spots is DO NOT PICK at them. However, I know that I don’t get listened to and to be fair sometimes I ignore that annoying voice in my own head when armed with a spare 10mins and my magnifying mirror.
How often you get a facial depends on lots of different factors. What condition is your skin in? Are you trying to solve a particular issue or problem? Do you have a special occasion coming up? And lest we forget how much money you have to spend on self care.
So you think it doesn’t matter what order you put on your products … right?
Wrong. Oh, so wrong.
So you have had all the excitement of the proposal and drank champagne like you are Marie Antoinette.
You may have already have purchased your wedding organiser or you may be taking a slightly more relaxed approach to planning your big day.
You might be having a country church wedding, outside or registry office but one thing is for sure. You want to make sure that on the big day that you are glowing...
We all have them surging through our bodies doing a number of important jobs. However, one thing they can do is mess with our skin. For some people this is more significant than others, but it does happen to us all in one way or another. There are reasons why some of us suffer more, usually due to an intolerance, but I will focus mainly on how it manifests itself in the skin and what you can do to limit its impact.
I love Stylist as much as the next girl – I really do! However, an article about how much product you should use popped up on my Facebook feed yesterday which sort of made me cringe (sorry Stylist!).
Facial massage is one of the greatest favours you can give your skin. Professional facial massage will have phenomenal results on your skin, no matter who you are.
The first signs of ageing tend to appear in our mid 20s, with lines appearing around our eyes and mouth. However, for me the biggest thing to age skin is a change in texture – that youthful glow and plumpness starts to fade...
