I was having a discussion with both a work colleague and my Mum recently about growing old gracefully and I there are many ways you can take care of your skin and treatments that you can undertake that don't have the shocking effects of plastic surgery.
For 20 years the people at Sk:n have been working to not only care for your skin but help to treat and prevent further problems. Their products treat skin conditions from Acne through to Warts and Verruca's.
One treatment I was always a little scared of was Chemical Peels. Just the name sounds a bit off putting, I had a horrible image of a snake shedding but after reading up about the peels on their blog I have a much better understanding of the procedure. You can check out thier blog here - blog.sknclinics.co.uk
A chemical peel removes the dead skin cells from your face and leave it feeling revitalised. The skin is gently massaged with a non-toxic chemical solution which removes the very top layer of dead skin and encourages cell renewal and collagen production. The treatment is pain free and all treatments are tailored to your skin to make them perfect for you.
I have always been quite lucky with my skin. I barely had any spots through puberty, can use almost any product on my face and am not much of a sun worshipper so don't have much sun damage.
I do however have quite dark circles under my eyes, most people would say this is the signs of being a Mum but I get plenty of sleep.
I also have quite a few blemishes on my face and a few wrinkles beginning to show, mainly from frowning too much!
I would love to find a product that will help give me an overall clearer complexion and leave me feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed (minus the tail).
Sk:n also have a range of skincare products that you can buy on their website so that you can continue to maintain your new healthy glow in the comfort of your own home.
