How to get your glow on in time for the festive season

Around this time of year as the festive party invites start dropping into your inbox and your 'to-do' list is turning into more of a remake of a Proust novel, it's easy to forget about your own well-being and taking care of your skin.

 

Taking time to keep your skincare routine up to speed during the stressful lead up to the festive season, especially as the colder weather heads our way, is an essential ingredient for a party-ready complexion.

First up take a look at our Radiant skin peel – A skin peel treatment will improve the texture and tone of your skin, making you red carpet ready for the festive season! The Radiant peel offered at the Lisa Franklin clinic privé is an alpha hydroxy acid resurfacing peel containing lactic acid to decrease the visible signs of ageing and hyperpigmentation. Here's what happens - exfoliation will remove dead skin cells and boost skin turnover. Fine lines and wrinkles will be minimised and discolouration, sun damage and large pores will also be reduced. For best results, follow this with a Vitamin A Boost, to strengthen skin, improve elasticity and create a more radiant and toned complexion.

 

Then apply the Lisa Franklin Pro-Effect Luminescent Base – The Pro-Effect Luminescent Base will complement the Radiant skin peel, giving you a flawless complexion, boosting radiance and providing the perfect at home regime to keep you looking youthful and fantastic - what's not to love about that! Now for the science bit... The Pro-Effect Luminescent Base uses second skin technology, which prevents skin from dehydrating whilst also allowing it to breathe. The combination of Diamond particles, Rose Quartz, Platinum and Frankincense illuminates, restores and energises skin, boosting radiance and diminishing imperfections, to leave skin appearing youthful and virtually free of fine lines, pores and redness. The instant remodelling extract of Gatuline In-Tense® tightens the skin from within, reorganising the dermis structure and visibly smoothing the skin surface. The dynamic active ingredient Celligent®, provides intelligent skin protection after sun exposure by increasing photo resistance and speeding up the regeneration process. The Pro-Effect Luminescent Base is the ‘must have’ product and can be used on its own or underneath makeup.

 

Finally, it's always a great idea to Feed The Skin From Within – What you put on your plate is just as important as what you put on your skin. Everything we consume becomes part of our inner being and therefore optimum nutrition is so important for our complexion. Eat a diet rich in leafy greens, vitamins c, good fats such as avocados and nuts, selenium and vitamin E and your skin will truly reap the rewards. To provide a further boost to your skin, hair and nails this festive season, we recommend SKINADE; a natural fruit flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing a plethora of active ingredients that boosts your body's natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
