Anti Ageing

Dry, Dehydrated and Hormonal Skin Conditions

They say ” The best wrinkle is the one you never get” and I agree … good advice, good skin care and fabulously effective facials.  That’s my promise to you.  Come and see why we are the best massage and beauty salon on the south coast.  Hope to see you soon.

Why does my skin look tired and dull?

In a young skin, the outer layer replaces itself every 28-30 days, giving it a fresh, healthy appearance. But as the skin ages, along with other bodily functions, the process of desquamation (dead cells lifting from the skin) slows down dramatically, resulting in the skin beginning to look dull, tired and worn.

Why do I have Dry Skin?

Dry skin occurs when insufficient sebum or oil is secreted. Skin texture is rough and may be flaky with a dull appearance. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles with age and lacks elasticity.

Causes of Skin Dryness

Climate, such as high heat, low humidity, or intense cold

  • Chronic dehydration
  • Harsh agents such as soaps, alcohol based preparations, glycolic acid and mechanical exfoliants
  • Sunburn
  • Hormonal imbalances such as pregnancy, menopause and thyroid conditions
  • Diabetes, eczema and psoriasis are conditions associated with skin dryness
  • Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency

The 40s and its implications

  • Collagen and elastin degenerate faster than they are made.
  • Skin is more susceptible to photo damage (UV rays)
  • Skin becomes drier and reduced oil flow contributes to a drier skin

The 50s and its implications

  • Rapid acceleration in the speed in which the skin loses elasticity
  • Lower oestrogen levels mean that wrinkles and folds may become more pronounced around this time
  • Skin care should include actives with proven rejuvenative benefits to assist in managing these changes.
  • The focus should be on moisturisation, skin plumping, regeneration of the epidermis and dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Skin defence mechanisms for stress weaken, so support of cell response to stress is needed.
  • Moisturisers are typically required and should be extra-nourishing with long-term moisturising benefits, able to fight dryness and reduce the appearance of surface lines and wrinkles.

The 60s and its implications

  • After menopause, once oestrogen production has ceased, the thinning of the epidermis leads to dull skin.
  • Wrinkles and expression lines have become etched on the surface.
  • Moisturisation and barrier repair strengthening are the main priorities for this increasingly fragile skin.
  • Patchy pigmentation and age spots are often very noticeable and need to be specifically treated.

CEYA – Cap Energy Youth Activator – How does it work?

CEYA® is a remarkable toning and firming therapy that is scientifically proven to achieve immediate and lasting results. Explained simply, the process uses radio waves to penetrate the body with ‘cold energy’. To balance itself, your body naturally heats the area by increasing blood flow to the region. Simultaneously supplying nutrients and oxygen while carrying away toxins and waste. This has the effect of sculpting and toning beautiful muscle while assisting with fine lines and wrinkles.

CEYA produces a radio frequency current that flows through the tissues increasing circulatory flow producing a heating effect to the skin, muscles, fatty and bone tissues. This allows a quicker interchange of nutrients between the cells. Within a few seconds toxins are removed from the area and the skin receives enough oxygen to function at optimal levels. Wrinkles diminish and the skin becomes instantly firm, tighter and more youthful.

Keep looking younger and more attractive

Considering that we feel more beautiful when we are healthy, happy or feeling good, is it not better then to utilise one common element in the human body that gives one’s beauty back to our tissues? So what is that element that keeps our tissues young, firm and attractive? The answer to all these questions is the Blood.

The CEYA (Cap Energy Youth Activator) unit produces a radio-frequency current that flows through our tissues and plays an important role at an internal level by bringing the blood from the outside to the inside of the tissues. This phenomenon is known as diathermy or hyperthermia. On the outside, we only see it because the skin gets a bit reddish and because we feel an enjoyable sense of warmth.

A revolution however takes place inside. Under the epidermal layer, an alluvium of blood from the veins, capillaries and arteries flood the treatment area and drag away those waste materials and toxins that block the oxygen from entering into the cell membrane. Within a few seconds, the toxins are completely removed from the area and the intercellular drainage frees the cells affected by the lack of oxygen.

Non-Surgical Facelifting

The most spectacular and most recommended treatment for women in their 40’s or 50’s, is the Non-Surgical Face lifting. Within a 10 minute-treatment, we can notice how the skin has decongested, the eyebrows have raised, the eyes look a lot open, the double chin has firmed and the cheeks have moved higher.

What about Eye Bags and Eye Rings?

Dark Eye Rings can be a proof of physical and intellectual tiredness. They are extremely unsightly and produce a tired or unhappy appearance. Only a few people do not suffer from dark eye rings. The CEYA eliminates them efficiently, and at the same time, makes the skin appear fresher and brighter.

Hyperpigmentation & Sun Damage

A True Anti-Ageing Solution

’10 Years Younger in 10 Days’

Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you’re young, it will definitely show later in life.

At Face & Body Therapies we offer the latest breakthrough in Skin Rejuvenation Therapy the Energist Ultra VPL is an exciting, non-invasive treatment for benign skin conditions such as pigmentation, sun damage, facial redness, broken capillaries, acne scarring, enlarged pores and fine lines.

Oily, Congested & Acne Prone Skin

Did you know that 85% of adolescents will experience acne, it affects 8% of 25-34 year olds, and 3% of 35-44 year olds. Further the majority of sufferers will have a family history of acne.

Blocked pores, dull skin, uneven skin, blackheads and whiteheads…all signs of congested skin and often affecting not just teenagers, but adults too. Also known as open comedomes, blackheads are literally tiny plugs in the opening of a follicle or pore on the skin. The pore plug is a combination of oils, sebum and dead skin cells. Open to the skin’s surface, the plug becomes darkened as it is exposed to oxygen. Whiteheads are closed at the skin’s surface, blocked by cellular debris but not exposed to oxygen so remain light in colour.

Blackheads, whiteheads and blocked pores are usually caused by a combination of factors. Excess skin oil, sebum and toxins that are expelled through the skin are often an underlying issue. In addition dead skin cells, pollution, occlusive make up and dirt also play a role by filling up pores already opened by sebum and oil production. Each factor will contribute to congestion in a different but significant way:

Skin Oil & Sebum: excess oil and sebum production by the skin will contribute to clogging pores and encourage the growth of skin bacteria. When combined with external factors such as dirt, blackheads easily form.

Toxic Congestion: blood and lymph supply the skin with nutrition. However, if the toxins that are produced in our bodies everyday are not eliminated properly, they are eliminated via the skin and can contribute to congestion as well as other issues such as acne and skin irritation.

Dead Skin Cells: Each 3 or 4 weeks the skin replenishes the skin cells. This natural process creates a layer of dead skin cells over the surface of the skin. If not removed, the dead skin cells create dull looking skin. The other thing that may happen is that the dead cells will plug the pores on your face and create congestion and blackheads. When combined with excessive sebum production, this can lead to the formation of white-heads and black heads.

Skin Care & Make Up: The key culprits in skin congestion are products that contain petrochemical based oils as they have an occulusive effect, stopping the skin from breathing and blocking pores. Talc, which is common in make up and finishing powder, also has this effect. Waxes and butters may also be an issue with skin prone to congestion. Make up is usually worn on a daily basis so it is essential to choose a make up that suits your skin type and doesn’t contribute to further congestion.

Pollution & Dirt: Building up on the surface of skin over the day, pollution is a factor in the formation of blackheads and blocked pores. The more polluted the area in which you live, the more skin pollution you are likely to experience. Effective skin cleansing is vital to clean the skin of daily dirt and grime…and a splash of water at the end of the day just doesn’t cut it. Dirt that is found on our face and other parts of the body can be a breeding ground for bacteria and combined with oily skin can make things even worse. Where does the dirt come from? Dirty hands are a key culprit and those already conscious of their skin tend to pick and rub their skin more than others, just making the problem worse.

Treatment of Blackheads

So, how to get rid of blackheads and congested skin? Well squeezing them out is not the answer. This technique will just lead to further skin irritation and possibly damage and scarring to the surrounding tissue. Rather than removing blackheads by squeezing, the best way to get rid of them is by attacking the source of the problem.

  1. A good cleansing routine: Cleansing the skin of daily dirt, grime and pollution is essential. A good cleansing routine is a very effective way to remove blackheads, as it will help wash away excess oil and dead skin particles.
  2. Regular gentle exfoliation: One way to minimise congestion and clogged pores is to ensure the top layer skin remains clear by regularly removing the dead skin cells.
  3. Fruit Enzyme Peels: Enzyme peels are another way of clearing dead skin cells. They work as a result of their ability to break the bonds between dead skin cells that form at the surface of the skin. Skin normally has a dead layer of cells at its surface (the corneocyte layer), and fruit enzymes can speed up the normal process of skin cell regeneration and sloughing. This results in increased flexibility of the skin as well as decreased formation of large dry skin flakes at the surface of the skin. Pumpkin, pineapple and pawpaw provide natural, gentle enzyme proteases that loosen the glue between dead skin cells, slough away impurities, dead skin cells and unplug the pores while delivering nutrition to the skin. This leaves the skin cleansed and silky smooth and reduces the likelihood of blackheads. Fruit enzyme ‘peels’ only need to be used once or twice a week for good effect.
  4. Light Moisturisers: Moisturisers that use waxes, butters and petrochemical oils will be more likely to contribute to congestion in skin that is prone to blackheads. Please note that waxes and butters are perfectly suitable and definitely beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated skin but for those with congested skin, choose lotions rather than rich creams. If you have combination skin and suffer from congestion as well as dry skin, use oil based serums or hyaluronic acid to increase moisture content in the skin without contributing to further blockage.
  5. Make Up: Mineral make is an ideal alternative for those with congested skin. Rather than sinking into or filling pores, the particles of pigment sit on the surface of the skin allowing the skin to breathe properly. This helps minimise congestion and eventually, allows the pores to shrink.

Following the steps above will not only help you minimise congestion but will also encourage clear, vibrant skin in general.

Rosacea, Reactive & Sensitive Skin

Little is known about the cause of Rosacea, but we do know

  • Rosacea predominantly affects fair-skinned people of Celtic origin, as well as of northern & eastern European descent – ‘Celtic curse’
  • Develops in adult age – typically in the 30s – 60s
  • Women are affected 2-3 times more than men
  • Men are affected more severely and progress to advanced stages more often than women
  • The erythema of rosacea is apparently aggravated by chronic sun exposure and photo damage. Exposing facial skin to sources of radiant heat reproduces the erythema.

While there is still no known cure we do know managing symptoms is key. Try and avoid these things which cause flare ups,

  • Hot, spicy food
  • Wind
  • Alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Hot drinks
  • Hot showers
  • Perimenopausal link
  • Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Sun exposure (called a photo-aggravated disorder)
  • Detergents, fragranced soaps and cleansers
  • Chemical sunscreens
