Acne

Spot the difference….

You’ll grow out of them they said.  

It’s just a few spots they said. 

You can’t see them they said. 

Acne can effect any age, any gender and in a number of ways.  It took me a long time to really understand how acne worked and what I can do to prevent it. 

It was my dermatologist that recommended #Environ to improve my skin. When I was introduced to the brand and its partners #advancenutritionprogramme and #janeiredalemakeup my interest in skincare has has lead me to #alumier and since I have been using these products I haven’t looked back.  

As I approach 40 my skin is the best it has ever been. My bad skin days now are better than my good skin days before. I have learnt how powerful active ingredients are,  they aren’t available in a supermarket or department store.  Skincare specialists can make a real difference to you skin and give you confidence and guidance.  It’s all about the #skinscience

Bridal Skincare

The wedding date is set, venues secured and your dress chosen.  All the big things are organised so what’s next on your list? It’s never too early to start a skin care plan to ensure your skin is looking it’s very best for your big day.  With so many options, it’s good to hear from other brides what they have used and known to work. 

 

Vale Laser Clinic can help you on your journey to looking your very best on your big day, here’s a question and answer session with Hannah who was married in August 2016:

  • How did you hear about Vale Laser Clinic?

I came across Vale Laser Clinic on Instagram at the beginning of 2015. It came up and it made me visit the website. 

  •  What skin concerns and treatment have you had?

My main skin concerns were sun damage, oily skin and redness. I had a oily forehead in particular. The centre of face would be red in comparison to the rest of my skin and I had sun damage in various spots. Overall my skin was never very even and I never felt I could get away with not wearing any makeup. I started my treatment with the Environ skin care range. I have used this since February 2015 and I have also had approx 7-8 Laser skin rejuvenation sessions all with a 3-4 week break in between. Some sessions also included laser red vein removal and laser pigmentation removal. 

  •  Has is made a difference to you and if so what?

The main difference it has made for me is that it has improved the texture of my skin. The treatments have helped my oily skin in particular and I have less redness over all. My forehead could still benefit from a few more sessions as its been very tricky to get to bottom of whether it is redness or pigmentation that is causing it to look blotchy, but I feel my skin tone is even and in much better condition overall. 

  •  What makes Vale Laser Clinic so special?

I have enjoyed my experience at Vale Laser Clinic for many reasons. Emma made me feel comfortable in her clinic and explained everything she was going to do to improve my skin. Each session started with a mini facial which made my skin feel incredible. The services and products are priced really well and I felt I was getting a good service for the money I was paying. I also like the fact I could contact Emma privately to show her pictures of my results following a session so she knew how proceed with the next session. 

  •  Would you recommend to family and friends?

I would definitely recommend the clinic to my friends and family. I know many people who are not happy with various different things to do with their skin and so I have recommended Emma. I like the idea of being able to pop in for a treatment with Emma and maybe some new nails at the same time so I have told family and friends about this too. I have even asked for some gift vouchers from my husband for Christmas so I can go in the New Year!!

New Year Habits

New year is a great time to create new habits, we usually start keenly and overhaul our regime but if it’s too difficult or requires lots of energy or big changes, chances are by February you are back to you old habits.  Lots of clients come to me and say they don’t have time to cleanse and tone or the forget to take supplements. I hold my hands up, this used to be me but with 3 children under 8, a busy house and my own business I have found ways to incorporate it into my routine and it just all becomes ingrained in my day.

Here’s my top 5 tips to help you create that new routine:

1.  skin-cleansingTaking your makeup off doesn’t have to wait until bed time.  Quite often I remove my make up and cleanse with lotion and a face cloth when I’m home with the kids after school or their activities.  I’ll do it while they are in the shower or brushing their teeth or I’m getting changed out of my work clothes. My skin feels clearer and lighter and it means that when the time comes I can just fall in between the sheets.

2.  No time to tone.  The image of a lady set in front of her vanity mirror using cotton pads to cleanse and tone whilst preparing for the day is just not happening in our house while we rush to get to where we need to be.  My best advice for you is to incorporate it into something you do already.  I shower and cleanse at the same time.  Stage 1 complete.  I’m dry and putting on my underwear then pat my toner on my face (no cotton wool required) stage 2 complete.  Bra next and then moisturise with serums cocktailed in are applied, stage 3 complete.  Deodorant, clothes and my hair is brushed then my RAD is patted in EVERY DAY for protection against SPF’s, stage 4 complete.  My bottles are lined up in my bedroom, with easy access and it’s taken no more than 30 seconds to incorporate it into getting dressed which I have to do every day. suplements

3.  Forgetting to take skin care supplements.  A common problem.  Do you often for get to brush your teeth?  Pop your supplements next to your tooth brush, this gives you two opportunities a day to take them and a water supply on tap (see what I did there?).

4.  Information overload. With marketing reaching us 24/7 it’s hard to know what’s right for your skin and it can be expensive to use something that will not have the desired effect. Its easy to stick with what you’ve always done. But.. You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results.  See a skin care specialist, have your skin analysed to see what happening below the surface and start with the basics. Get a good routine of cleanse, tone, moisturise and protect. incorporate this into your daily routine like in point 1 using products that are full of vitamin A and anti-oxidants, these are the ingredients scientifically proven to improve your skin’s health and appearance. And when you have embedded these good habits into your routine, adding a roller of an evening or the odd home skin peel is no problem. 

5.  Keep it clean.  Not just your skin but the tools you use every day. Wash your makeup brushes, take them with you to your facial specialist who will use specific brush shampoo to clean them for you and don’t forget your makeup bag, put it through the washing machine or clean with a suitable cleaner regularly.  If you use a cloth to clean your face treat it like your knickers, a clean one every day! 

The gift of confidence

If you know someone who as regretted that tattoo for a while now, who has to think about their hair growth before committing to social occasions or sports activities.  Maybe they are concerned with ageing or you want to pamper them with some beauty treatments, our gift cards are a great way to help their regain their confidence.

You can purchase them for a specific course of treatments, a one off treatment, any of our retail items, a makeup base set (they can come in for specific colour match), gift sets or any monetary amount such as £20, £50 or £100

 

A-may-zing

So how have things been since your last treatment?  It’s a question I ask each and every one of my clients when I see them, usually as I’m getting their file for us to update.   Always happy with a positive reply, sometimes there is a pause. Today there was a pause…  This is when I look up to see the expression on my client’s face…

 

 A-MAY-ZING!! She exclaims with a big beaming smile on her face and bouncing with confidence. Tina is looking me straight in the eye telling me how she’s gone from trimming facial hair daily to once a week, and all this after just one treatment! She can’t wait to get going with the second treatment and seeing how much it improves again.    She’s not constantly wondering if the growth is too much and people will notice, she’s not shying away from physical contact on her face.  Her husband has said how much more confident she is.  Why hasn’t she done something like this before?!

 

Usually during consultation for facial hair removal, ladies are shy and embarrassed by it.  It’s one of those things that lots and lots of ladies have (it’s the damn hormones again!) but no-one ever talks about and for most of them its taken a big leap of faith to even come for the consultation.  There is quite often tears about their situation and apprehension about the treatment process.  Some ask lots and lots of questions, others just want to get on with it.  All of them have a test patch, all of them continue with their course of treatment. 

 

Seeing these ladies rock their confidence each time they come in is without doubt the best part of what I do. Xx
