PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN A CURE

FACE FACTS

Your face is what you present to the world; it makes the first impression on people you meet.  Your face is the part of you most revealed to others.  Our face reflects the condition of our body. It bears the brunt of sun, wind, smoking, stress and bad diet, and is always on the go. People are educated to exercise and eat right for the health of our bodies.

Face Facts #1: Did you know our skin is the largest organ of the body?  Therefore we need to be more informed about how we can look after it.

THE AGING PROCESS

Our genetic inheritance is important. If our parents have good skin, the chances are we will have good skin too, although we can easily ruin a good thing with external exposure and neglect. As children, our skin is extremely efficient at self- exfoliating dead skin cells, and regenerates at a rapid pace.  The dermal layer of our skin is abundant with elastin and collagen. This is what keeps our skin firm and tight. The skin and body starts its degeneration process in our late 20s. The structure of the skin loses its elasticity and radiance, as the breakdown of collagen and elastin begins beneath the skin’s surface. The exfoliation and regeneration of new cells also significantly slows down resulting in fine lines and wrinkles; pigmentation; acne and an overall rough blotchy complexion.  With today’s new advanced equipment and technology, we can dramatically slow the aging process, and save what nature is taking away.

SAY GOODBYE TO SUN DAMAGE OUR MAIN CAUSE OF PREMATURE AGING!

WHAT IS SUN DAMAGE?

Face Facts #2: Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world.

For most of us the damage has already been done. We spent too many hours frying ourselves on beaches when we were young, even helping the process along with such things as coconut oil and vinegar!  This accelerated the aging process, leaving the skin looking much older than it really is; wrinkles become more obvious; the surface will look rough, dry, uneven and leathery; and the structure of the skin will lose it’ elasticity and radiance.  It will also lose valuable hyaluronic acid, which helps keep it moist and plump.

WHAT IS PIGMENTATION?

Face Facts #3: Sunburn and sun exposure can lead to the skin becoming marked with spots and discolouration.

Pigmentation is created when the melanin beneath the skin increases in colour; looking darker or loses its colour all together, leaving a white patch or spot on the skin. While wrinkles and lines certainly contribute to an aged appearance, discolouration, age spots and dullness have a more ageing effect. Generally speaking, darker skin is thicker and less likely to wrinkle, but more likely to suffer from pigmentation. Fairer skin has the greatest tendency to wrinkle and often suffer from freckles, which increase with sun exposure. The good news about pigmentation is that it can be treated, and your skin’s youthfulness can be regained.
