Why Sunscreen Is a Non-negotiable Staple In Your Skincare Routine

2021-05-07T12:13:47+00:00May 17th, 2021|

The biggest misconception in the skincare world? Sunscreen is optional. We don't need it in the UK unless it's summertime and we're taking a trip to the beach. And throughout the rest of the year, we have enough in our makeup to keep us protected. These are misconceptions that I hear in my consultations far [...]

2021-04-30T17:17:48+00:00May 10th, 2021|

When it comes to stimulating collagen and improving the overall skin texture of the face and neck, there isn't much that compares to Profhilo in my eyes. It's a relatively new, non-invasive treatment in the world of aesthetics, but since its release in 2015, it's managed to cause quite a stir with patients and practitioners [...]

The conversation about menopause has started to open up a lot over the last few years. Historically, this life-altering event was spoken about in whispers as many women were too afraid or embarrassed to speak openly about their experience. The sad truth is that although this is slowly changing, many women are still blindsided by [...]

Is sugar ageing you?

2021-04-22T16:57:50+00:00April 30th, 2021|

We’re all pretty familiar with the idea that what we eat affects the way our skin looks. There is no doubt that the food we consume has a significant role to play when it comes to not only our general well-being but skin health also. Glowing, lustrous, youthful skin is a common goal for many [...]

Ingestible beauty: Should you be taking a collagen supplement?

2021-04-21T19:16:30+00:00April 26th, 2021|

Collagen. It’s one of the essential building blocks of healthy skin and many other parts of the body like our hair, nails, and bones. It gives our skin its structure, strength and elasticity, and that’s what forms the scaffolding of the skin – the supportive base that provides us with the ‘boiiing’ we need for [...]

Inflammageing: Are you accelerating the ageing process?

2021-04-21T19:09:48+00:00April 23rd, 2021|

The word 'inflammation' carries all kinds of negative connotations. But when it comes to the skin, inflammageing describes how long-term chronic inflammation accelerates the skin's ageing process (by reducing collagen production and inhibiting skin cells' ability to renew and repair themselves), resulting in lines, wrinkles, laxity, and hyperpigmentation. As we age and our cells die, [...]

The relationship between science and beauty is an ever-evolving one. When it comes to skincare, the future is bright. Newer innovations are coming through thick and fast, each hoping to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach and instead, start delivering the formulations that your skin specifically needs. Whilst DNA-based skincare isn't new, the desire for [...]

"Your face finishes at your breasts." As an aesthetic doctor, I've recited this phrase to my patients countless times over the years. Your skin doesn't stop at your chin, so why should your skincare? A surprisingly delicate area, the skin on our neck and decolletage is much more vulnerable to ageing than its facial counterpart [...]
