Skin Care Tricks and tips

skin care products

Healthy skin is in a state of perfect balance, with dead cells being shed and replaced by fresh ones.

To remain in this state of balance and to radiate health and beauty, skin needs to be supported by good nutrition, appropriate external care - including cleansing, toning and moisturising - and a lifestyle that includes exercise and relaxation.

Most skin problems highlight an imbalance in one or more of these areas, and can be transformed with some simple changes.

Here are some simple, practical tips:


Clean It!

Wash your face morning and night. Avoid soap. Don't scrub your skin. Avoid products that foam and lather (eg soap and shower gels etc). These are likely to strip the skin's natural protective barrier. Regularly apply a fragrance free, hydrating moisturise.

Also avoid bubble baths, chlorinated pools, any alcohol based make up removers, toners and cosmetic cleansers as these tend to dry the skin.

Shower or bath in cool or lukewarm water. Keep showers to less than 5 minutes.


Protect from Sun

Sun alters skin structure. It causes your top layer of dead skin to thicken as a "protective response". It even goes further to the living epidermis.

  • Dermis responds to sun by forming little piles of pigment known as age spots–also considered a pre-cancerous condition.
  • In this lower layer of skin, elastin, the stretchy net that holds your skin in place, is torn down by sun exposure. This is how the sun causes sagging skin.
  • Collagen resides within the dermis. Collagen is the protein–the basic substance–of which skin is made. The sun destroys collagen. This is how wrinkles form.
  • The network of capillaries that feed skin with oxygen and nutrients is devastated by sun exposure. Capillaries become sparse, distorted and irregular. The blood supply to your skin is cut off. It can’t heal. Your skin takes on a sickly pallor.


Dead Skin Therapy

Brushes. There is some question about the uniformity of the exfoliation (or peeling), but many who use brushing are very happy with their glowing skin. Try it and see if you like this method. Try our skin brushing treatment.

Scrubs. Almost every line of cosmetics sells a scrub. Scrubs can contain oatmeal or bits of almond. Uniformity is also an issue with scrubs. Some warn about abrasive damage to the skin, but the benefits of removing dead cells most likely outweigh the effects of abrasion. Again, see if this works for you. Give your complexion a boost with gentle Manual Micro-dermabrasion

Chemical and Glycolic Peels, and Laser Treatments. These physician-administered treatments can create a radical new complexion. You may want to consider these (although they should never take the place of daily exfoliation). If you want the rapid appearance of new baby skin and little recovery time, this might be a good option for you. Book our Peels and feel good again.


Nourish your skin


The Epidermis - The top layer of the skin, locks in moisture and blocks toxins from entering the body.

The Dermis - The second layer of the skin, (where stretch marks occur), is where our skin produces collagen and elastin fibers which give it a firmer and younger appearance.

The Hypodermis - The third layer of skin, which is composed of fat and connective tissue.


Our skin is a barrier to exterior environment and does not let in substances that may be harmful to your body. And that might comprise some cosmetic ingredients beside the airborne pollutants. The skin acts as a filter to assess and determine the relationship – the user-friendliness, if you will – to the interior body itself. The skin is a very accommodating organ. It is built to adapt to the environment so it can help to keep us alive in any given climate. The most immediate environment to our skin is what we put on it topically. Yes, the skin care and cosmetics we select.

The skin's natural filtering system decides to accept or reject those products. Is it "skin-friendly" or is it toxic? The best accepted products are those that contain natural constituents - - - the skin's own ingredients.


Cosmedix the only cream that contains the natural biological ingredients that are compatible and match up to what is already in the skin. Your skin will recognize these substances and will utilize them, bolstering your skin's ability to repair itself. And because the ingredients in the cream are all skin bio-compatible, there is no risk of a sensitive/allergic reaction.
