Everyone wants glowing skin for the walk down the aisle, but how do you achieve this?
- Assess Early
If you really want to get your skin in tip top condition, it’s recommended that your skincare routine starts about a year in advance. It’s okay if you don’t have that long before the wedding day, just adopt these good skincare habits as soon as possible.
- Schedule Professional Skin Treatments
Your wedding is the perfect excuse for some extra pampering. You’ll want to book monthly skin treatments to really refresh your skin. Our Skincare experts have put together their top treatments and products to help you prepare for you big day!
The Dermapen™ can effectively treat hard to reach places such as around the eyes, nose and lips. It is ideal for treating:
- Fine Lines
- Surgical, Acne and Trauma Scars
- Stretch Marks
The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling treatment which promotes healing and natural collagen reproduction. It promotes skin rejuvenation and cellular renewal. It is similar to IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
Typically you may see results from the first treatment. Longer lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments at the interval of 4-6 weeks apart. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended home care prescriptives.
Dermaquest Chemical Peels & Resurfacers:
We have a range of intensive skin peels and resurfacer treatments using DermaQuest advanced skincare technology. These treatments effectively minimise fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation and enlarged pores. They are deeply exfoliating and rejuvenating to improve skin texture and restore radiance. All the peels and resurfacers are tailored
specifically to your skin type, needs and skin concerns. They are completely safe and non-invasive. You will need to prep the skin before treatments using specific products which your aesthetician will recommend for you during your consultation.
Diamond Microdermabrasion deeply exfoliates the skin; the treatment removes dead and tired skin cells. Once the dead skin cells are removed healthier looking skin is revealed. This improves the overall appearance of the skin. It helps refine fine lines and wrinkles, it stimulates collagen production, promoting the growth of healthy new cells. It also helps relieve congested and enlarged pores. A single microdermabrasion treatment will restore natural luminosity to the skin; however the number of treatments required will vary depending on the client’s skin concerns and goals.
Our skincare specialists will discuss the best course of treatment for your skin condition and your goals.
Opera LED Face Treatment
The Opera LED Facial treatment is a unique LED light therapy mask, utilising either blue or red light though you can ask for both.
Red light stimulates skin rejuvenation, new collagen and elastin, it also brings down inflammation therefore is a calming treatment.
The blue light is well known to be powerful against the bacteria that causes acne. It can also help regulate the natural production of oil which is often the root of the problem.
It is a painless, non-invasive treatment for a variety of skin conditions.
- Wear SPF 30…On Your Lips
It’s easier to prevent your lips from getting chapped than it is to repair them if they’re already dry and cracked. If you spend lots of time outdoors, especially in windy, sunny or cold weather, a thick balm with SPF 30 will keep your lips hydrated. DermaQuest Sheer Zinc Clear SPF 30 can be used on the lips and the face.
4. Wash Your Face With Your Hands
Here’s a secret most dermatologists will tell you: Don’t use a washcloth on your face.
Washcloths can harbor bacteria. Instead, use just your hands. But first, use a separate makeup remover with cotton wool to tackle waterproof mascara and long-wearing lipstick.
- Wash Your Makeup Brushes!
Every time you apply makeup with a dirty brush, you add a layer of acne-causing bacteria to your skin. Cleaning your brushes is easy: Just suds them with shampoo, rinse them and hang them to air-dry with the bristles facing down.
- Avoid Alcohol
Alcohol dehydrates your body generally, including the skin – your body’s largest organ. This happens every time you drink. Drinking too much is also thought to deprive the skin of vital vitamins and nutrients. Over time, drinking heavily can have other, more permanent, detrimental effects on your skin
7. Homecare is essential
No matter how many facial treatments you go for, if you are not properly looking after your skin at home you will not get the full benefits from it. Using the correct products is essential to beautiful skin. One of our must have products is DermaQuests Essential B5 Hydrating Serum. This serum is a drink of water for your skin! The unique hydrating serum helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin, enhancing skin firmness, softness and elasticity preventing aging and dehydration.
