With Autumn in full swing, it’s time to talk skin. Autumn brings cooler weather (sweater weather!) and a drop in humidity, which makes for dry, stale air and even drier skin. Mix this with dry heat from radiators, and it’s a setup for skin disasters like eczema and dry, itchy skin. Once it hits, you get the urge to dramatically swipe your entire summer beauty collection off the shelf and into the trash, only to replace it with a fresh new routine. With this in mind I have been thinking about what we can do to transition from summer to autumn. And, in general, it’s always good to approach skin care seasonally, just like you do your wardrobe. As the seasons change, so should your skin care. The multi award-winning Wicklow Street Clinic are experts at skin enhancing and sometimes life-changing treatments. The clinic provides courses in several non-invasive courses of treatments that give strong measurable results as well as giving you some time to yourself. Reset September? Yes please.
Indian Head Massage
After stressful situations massage can really help relieve tension. An Indian Head massage once or twice a month is an incredible way to improve blood circulation, stimulate hair growth, release stress and mental tension and clear the mind – improving alertness and concentration. It can also give relief from headaches and migraines, anxiety and insomnia.
Eminence Organic Facials
The Wicklow Street Clinic uses organic skincare brand Eminence as well as Hungarian massage techniques to deeply relax their clients while creating visible results that lasts for days. A regular facial can benefit your skin look and tone. For example a course of the age-corrective collagen repairing facial gives immediate and lasting results. Adding an extra layer of hydration to your routine is another great way to prevent skin dehydration. The Eminence range has a superb selection for all skin types.
If you’re not ready for botox or fillers, consider a course in CACI. Considered the most advanced electrical facelift system of its time, CACI utilises a computer aided cosmetology instrument to lift, tone and re-educate the muscle back to its original position. As well as stimulating collagen and elastin it also offers numerous rejuvenation benefits. It results in radiant, younger looking skin that is naturally hydrated and plump. The treatments are customised to each age group from 20’s through to 60’s and beyond
Not ready for injectables but would like a skin-lift? Micro needling (also called Skin Needling) may be a good choice for you. During micro-needling micro-injuries are created in the epidermis. As a result, this signals the body to produce collagen and elastin to remodel the damaged area. This has a rejuvenating effect on your skin, making it look younger and brighter. This self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of renewal from the inside out. Not only does Micro needling stimulate cell regeneration, it also allows the penetration of active ingredients deep into the skin during the treatment.
