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.

What Are the Benefits of Skin Care?

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.

There are many skin care options available, and you can tailor your routine to your particular skin type and needs. For example, you may wish to achieve any combination of the following:

  • Reduce the build-up of oil and dead skin cells
  • Smooth lines and wrinkles
  • Minimise large or clogged pores
  • Repair sun-damaged skin
  • Treat acne, acne scarring, or eczema
  • Reduce unwanted pigmentation
  • Encourage cellular renewal
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production

Skin Care Treatments

Dr Jeremy Richardson uses scientific and medically-based techniques to brighten, repair, and rejuvenate your skin. A discussion about your skin needs can help us develop a treatment plan that meets your requirements. Home-care treatments can include:

  • Skin Care Masks – Masks are full of active ingredients that infuse the skin with nutrients and hydration.
  • Medical Peels – Medical grade skin peels work to regenerate and resurface the skin by lifting a dead layer of skin cells.

There are also professional treatments available, such as:

  • LED Therapy – LED treatments use light energy in order to stimulate your skin’s healing process and promote collagen production.
  • Injectables – Injectable treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections work to minimise lines and wrinkles and combat signs of ageing.

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.
