Premature aging - should you be concerned?

Lauren Wise

What is premature aging?

Well its exactly what it sounds like really- sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness or thinning of the skin, before your time. Even if this is not a big concern for you right now, protecting yourself against premature aging should be!

Organic, natural, synthetic

Lauren Wise

How do you know what is the right choice for you? As far as your skin is concerned, its more about what chemicals your skin can recognise and therefore tolerate. Yes chemicals! Whether organic, natural or synthetic, chemicals are a compound or substance and these chemicals will either interact well with our skin function or be detrimental to it.

Change of Season

Why your skin changes with the season…

With the change of season we see changes in temperature, humidity, wind and UV exposure.

When the weather is warm it is more humid, which means there is a lot more moisture in the air.

Oily Skin

Why does your oily skin really need a moisturiser?

Do you feel like you don’t need a moisturiser because your skin is already so oily?

Well you definitely do need to use a moisturiser, twice a day even! But the good news is you can even love your moisturiser once you have been prescribed the right one.

Adult Acne

I never had bad skin as a teen! So why do I have bad skin now?

I am so glad you asked!

We sure do hear this a lot in salon and as a fellow sufferer of acne, which didn’t occur until my early 20’s, I was once puzzled by this myself. So what can cause us to breakout later in life? Lets take a look at some of the possibilities.

Skin Barrier Function

What role does it play in you having the flawless skin you want?

How can you maintain a healthy skin barrier function?

Our skin barrier function is dependent on three key protective layers, our skin microbiome, acid mantle and lipid barrier. Put quite simply, these protective layers work together to keep the good stuff in and keep the bad stuff out.
