This can accelerate ageing and give us a tired or worn appearance. Knowing what works best for you and your skin will help you maintain smooth, healthy, and youthful vibrancy.
Skincare can look slightly different for everyone. Although some people may seek dramatic skin rejuvenation options via surgical or invasive methods, it is also important to consider your skin’s health at a micro-level. Keeping your skin clean, balanced, and hydrated can contribute to your overall health and keep you looking younger for longer.
Although some people view skin care as a female endeavour, it is not exclusive to women. Both men and women should pay attention to their skin’s health, as it forms part of our overall health and wellbeing. Even small lifestyle changes, such as improving dietary nutrition and hydration, can improve your skin.
Your skin contains fibres called collagen and elastin, which are vital proteins responsible for keeping your skin firm and elastic. The number of collagen and elastin fibres in your skin decreases every year after about the age of 20, which means our skin starts to become thinner and more fragile. The function of our sweat and oil glands also diminishes. Therefore, if we don’t take adequate care of our skin, especially with age, the skin can begin to adopt an uneven tone, wrinkles, and roughness. In addition to age, constant exposure to toxins and the sun’s UV rays can further damage the skin.

Although all of these can have great benefits, each of the treatments may not have the same results for everyone. As a result, when exploring skin care, it is important to know your skin type and take your personal skin needs into account. For example, if you have naturally oily skin, you may benefit from avoiding oily products. In comparison, those with dry skin can benefit from highly moisturising products.
With the right care for your skin type, you can treat dryness, cleanse your face from oils and debris, reduce large pores, as well as treat a variety of conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea, and others.
Your personal consultation is the first step to finding the right procedure for you. Dr Jeremy Richardson is a highly skilled clinician, dedicated to providing quality results and a positive patient experience.
