Our mission as aestheticians is education and transparency.
Why? Because we feel we have a crucial role to play.
To create skincare treatments that really work on a cellular level.
Anti aging skincare products that contain active, intelligent ingredients that will keep your skin healthy.
When should I implement an anti aging routine?
It’s never too early to start; there should never be a time where you shouldn’t be mindful of looking after your skin and treating it right.
In our clinic, we educate our clients about extrinsic and intrinsic ageing – you can do so much the earlier you start.
Throwing all your money into expensive ingredients is not necessary; instead, be consistent with your skincare routine, keep things simple with a regime that’s consistent and right for your skin type.
Get your beauty sleep.
Sleep makes a big difference; studies have found the impact of sleep and stress on the skin, which is really fascinating.
Getting your beauty sleep is the best way to boost collagen production. This is when the body’s repair process takes place to undo the day’s damage—the production of humectants like hyaluronic acid increases during the night, which boosts hydration levels.
The essentials of a good skincare routine
We believe 5 things work no matter your age:
This should be an essential part of your skincare regime. We recommend not using a sunscreen higher than SPF30, as it can irritate your skin because of all the high levels of chemicals they contain.
We see clients daily, and we can instantly tell who has been using sunscreen regularly and who hasn’t. Even after a couple of months of regular use, lines are improved, and skin is more supple. Not only will your skin need to do less to protect itself, but the damage is minimised.

Very gentle exfoliation will maintain a good skin barrier, boost collagen production and promote a healthy skin that is better hydrated. It will also help with better penetration of your other products.
It’s more important to focus on finding and investing in the right cleanser.
Many of our clients see this as the boring part of their skincare routine; but it is essential to get the right cleanser for your skin type, or it will throw your skin’s pH off balance, leaving it open to infections and pathogens. Miracle cleanse protects as it cleanses, is gentle and ideal for all skin types.
These are important for boosting your skin’s defences. Research shows that although a healthy diet and oral supplements are of utmost importance, there is also a significant gain in using a topical antioxidant to fight free radicals and ward off daily UV and pollution damage. Glo antioxidant complex is a great product for targeting these problems.
These are vitamin A derivatives, which have a lot of research around them as an anti-ageing ingredient, promoting collagen production and preventing its breakdown.
A+ retinol complex comes in two strengths so you can build up your skin’s tolerance and is a great way to ward of premature ageing.
