If you got extra festive this past festive season, gave your skincare a holiday, too, or simply had just the right amount of fun in the sun to leave your skin with a bit of a dehydrated, sun-kissed hangover, the start of a new year is the perfect time to kickstart your skincare regime and get your complexion as happy as the memories in your camera roll.
Know you need a fresh start in the skincare department but don't know where to start? That's where we come in – with the treatment and products perfect for this time of year, whether you enjoyed a staycation or a vacation.
The quicker you start treating that pigmentation that's started living its best life while you were living yours, the better. And, when it comes to a treatment that gets results, MesoBrite™ is the go-to of many who struggle with sun damage, dark marks and hyper-pigmentation – even after being super well-behaved on the sunscreen, hat and "stay out of the sun between 10am and 2pm" fronts.
A medical depigmenting treatment that efficiently and progressively eliminates stubborn pigmentation spots and patches, MesoBrite™ targets the accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin and addresses the root of the problem, too – pigmentation production within the skin. It really is the complete solution to targeting hyperpigmentation, including sun-induced pigmentation and melasma.
A MesoBrite™ treatment consists of 3 main phases:
- Firstly, preparing the skin and repairing the skin's barrier, getting inflammation and pigment triggers under control;
- Secondly, the in-clinic treatment – a depigmenting mask – kickstarts the process of treating the dark patches or melasma which sits deep within the skin;
- Thirdly, the home care maintenance treatment products further improve the process started by the in-clinic procedure.
Suspect your skin needs the exfoliating factor?
SkinCeuticals Glycolic Renewal Cleanser is a soft-foaming gel cleanser that gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it fresh while removing oil, dirt and makeup. Containing a high concentration of Glycolic Acid, which removes cellular cohesions on your skin's upper layers, this cleanser improves cellular turnover, dials up the natural radiance of your skin, and – with regular use – can improve the appearance of larger pores. Added benefits? The presence of Phytic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, and Glycerine within the formulation promotes skin clarity and brightness, and it's an easy-to-rinse-off cleanser, too. So it won't leave any residue on your skin.
Time to bring your HA game?
Lamelle Corrective HA Plus Serum is a revolutionary anti-ageing treatment that effectively increases skin elasticity and hydration. The first product to contain five Hyaluronic Acid types and two Hyaluronidase inhibitors, this unique formula has several skin benefits, including stimulating the body's own Hyaluronic Acid and protecting the existing Hyaluronic Acid within the skin. Larger fragment HA, HAFi fragments and intermediate-size Hyaluronic Acid fragments work together to enhance skin health and appearance beyond regular hydration – assisting in surface hydration effects (plumping up the epidermis) and working at the deeper dermal layer to increase fibroblast activity and collagen production, which enhances dermal modelling, further firming and plumping the skin.
Lips feeling a little too sun-kissed?
Add Neostrata Correct Lip Wrinkle Repair to cart. An anti-wrinkle, topical line filler for on and around your lips, this product contains 5% NeoGlucosamine, which is a building block for Hyaluronic Acid and stimulates the visible plumping of fine lines around your mouth, and 3% NeoCitriate, which supports your skin's natural collagen production, increasing volume and new skin cell formation.
Got your eye on those crow's feet?
Lamelle Nourish Revitalise Eye is a medium viscosity eye product – built into a luxuriously smooth cream base – for all skin types wanting to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the windows to your soul. It helps contour and firm the skin around the eyes, making fine lines less noticeable and brighter, thanks to Baobab and Grape seed oils, which infuse the skin around the eyes with antioxidants and natural oils. And, because it contains anti-congestion peptides, it also sends those bags under your eyes packing.
All that vitamin sea calls for some Vitamin C?
Endocare C Pure Concentrate is an intensive Vitamin C treatment meticulously designed to counteract the visible signs of ageing while bringing out your skin's natural radiance. This innovative formula is oil-free and absorbs swiftly into your skin, making it perfect for daily use. Its high concentration of pure Vitamin C serves dual purposes – providing a potent antioxidant effect to combat free radical damage and brighten your complexion. What makes this serum a real anti-ageing game-changer? SCA Growth Factors Technology is a patented regenerative formula loaded with Growth Factors. This unique ingredient is the powerhouse for skin regeneration, improving skin cell activity, mending skin firmness, softening fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing skin firmness and encouraging youthful elasticity.
Lastly, get to work on that outer glow from the inside out with our recently launched Marine Collagen Powder – available in Citrus and Apple and rooibos flavours–which offers benefits for skin, hair, bones, and muscle mass and the added benefit of being environmentally friendly compared to bovine collagen.
- Anti-ageing: Collagen acts as an antioxidant, neutralising free radicals in the body. This can lead to improved skin elasticity, moisture and reduced wrinkles.
- Promotes Hair Growth: Marine collagen, related to the protein keratin, may help support hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
- Supports Bone and Joint Health: Collagen can increase bone density and support joint health, reducing the potential for conditions like osteoarthritis.
- Helps Build Muscle Mass: Collagen peptides can enhance muscle strength and lead to fat loss in older people, especially when combined with resistance training.
- Good for Gut Health: Marine collagen is anti-inflammatory and can support the digestive tract lining, potentially reducing stomach issues and promoting better digestion.
