Winter Skin Prep

Is your skincare ready for winter?

Sadly winter is almost here with the days becoming shorter and the air getting cooler. Constantly being exposed to cold air outdoors then warm air indoors throws out bodys balancing system into overdrive, as it demands more energy to reach a state of equilibrium. As the humidity levels drop, our skin becomes dry, itchy & scaly from moisture loss. When our skin becomes dry & itchy sensitisation occurs. Its time to adjust your skincare routine to stand up to the elements.

Products containing high anti oxidant activity, such as the Lumi CoQ10 oil, Biopelle Retinol or Dr Natasha Cook illuminator, will boost the skin's immunity and assist with barrier function, improving the skins hydration and promoting new cell growth giving you a glowing complexion!

If your not great at keeping on track with your routine at home, then come into the clinic for monthly facials that will not only slough away the dead skin cells but also improving the hydration levels and skin texture.

Not sure what products are right for you, then call the clinic to book in for a consultation with one of our skin experts 5221 7676 or book online

6 Skincare Tips For Men

If you're getting up in the morning, washing your face with bar soap and water and running out the door, then it's time to step up your skincare game. We aren't suggesting that you fill up your bathroom cabinet with hard-to-pronounce cleansers and creams you probably won't use. But we do recommend committing to memory and practicing these six skincare tips that will make others do a double-take. But seriously, don't let these steps intimidate you... they're only fine-tuning what you already do.

1. Wash your face with a good cleanser. Be careful of taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs. This makes your skin dry and when your skin is dry you appear wrinkly and much older.

It is important to have a gentle cleanser that will cleanse the skin from the dirt and oil that can accumulate. Lumi's Gentle Cleanser is recommended

2. Stop buying cheap razors. With some men shaving five times a week investing in a quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose your weapon wisely. A too-close shave does more than just nick the skin. Continued trauma caused by cutting the skin can cause skin breakage over time. Invest in a quality razor and go with, not against, the grain of hair using gentle strokes. Choose a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness, your face will thank you.

3. Make after-shave your new best friend.  After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave. Your after-shave should be alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin.

4. Don't skip the facial moisturizer. Facial hair is great, but make sure what skin is exposed doesn't feel like sandpaper. Moisturizing daily with Lumi's Moisture + will give you soft, hydrated skin.

5. Never leave home without applying sunscreen. If you can find a moisturizer that contains SPF of 30 or higher, then you're on the way to stopping those pesky wrinkles. Make sure you have a spare sunscreen in the car or desk drawer as reapplication is necessary. 

6. Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow to skin, and causes wrinkles, sagging skin and an unhealthy yellowish hue. The good news? Once you quit, the repairing process begins’ which may help reverse the damage that’s already done, depending on its severity.

Is Winter a Good Time for Neck Rejuvenation?

The NEWS is out! Even though we still have to move through winter, fashion houses are saying that plunging necklines for spring and summer are destined to make the stage again—but with their décolleté-revealing cuts, they may stir up a few concerns about exposing this area.

Most women are religious about using sunscreen on their face, but don’t apply anything to the neck ,and oft-neglected area, which, along with the chest, is among the first to show the early signs of aging. Long-term damage can result in sun spots, crepiness, wrinkles, and a loss of youthful definition, while post-winter dullness and patchiness leaves skin looking uneven. Luminosity Skins Advanced Laser Tighten and Tone Systems can help.

Skin tightening laser remodelling heats the skin to stimulate more protein production. This procedure targets the protein in the dermis whilst preserving the epidermis and as a result there is minimal downtime associated with this (and easily hidden with winter scarfs and Jumpers). As dermal protein heals and remodels under an undamaged outer layer, the skin tightens and smooths, thus improving its appearance. Skin tightening treatments are designed to provide improvement in skin colour, tone, wrinkles and laxity, with minimal discomfort.

Rejuvenation is supported by effective skin care. At Luminosity Skin we highly recommend Vitamin A and Stem to support your skin structure in order to get the maximum effects of your Laser treatment.
