    Unlock Healthy, Glowing Summer Skin With Bradford Skin Clinic

     

    tizo suntan lotionSummer’s here! The warmer weather means that you can enjoy all the outdoors activities you have been dreaming of for so many months. But there’s some bad news: Spending too much time in the sun leads to dark spots, wrinkles and skin cancer, unless you take pro-active steps to take care of your skin. Let’s look at some of the best ways for you to look after your skin this summer.

     

    1. Exfoliate

     

    Dead skin cells on the surface can cause congestion that inhibits hydration. Exfoliation can get rid of the skin dulling debris and help your skin to better absorb the hydration from your toner and moisturizer. It will also help your makeup to stay on longer.

    Exfoliate in the morning, before you apply your toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup.

     

    1. Hydrate

     

    Use an intensive mask once or twice a week. Opt for a booster that can be layered underneath your moisturizer.

     

    1.  Tone

     

    Use a toner to refresh and help even out your skin’s porosity. You could carry a revitalizing toner in your handbag and use it whenever you need a refreshing lift.

     

    1. Replenish

     

    When the warm sunny days draw us outside, we become dehydrated from the inside. If you find yourself feeling dizzy or suffering from headaches, it’s time to step up your water intake.

     

    Drink at least eight 8-ounces of plain filtered water daily to help maintain your body’s critical moisture balance, which also affects the skin. Water aids detoxification. For every caffeinated beverage you drink, you have to drink twice the amount of water.

     

    1. Protect

     

    It’s not enough to apply sunscreen – you need to apply enough and frequently. According to several studies, most people don’t apply enough protection. You need to apply approximately a teaspoon full of sunscreen on your face and approximately a shot glass full on your body. Reapply sunscreen every two hours while you’re in the sun, and try to avoid direct sunlight between 11-3.

     

    Remember that a single blistering sunburn can double your risk of melanoma. Book a yearly skin examination by a dermatologist, and perform a monthly self-examination every month. Look for any changes in your skin or new growths that may signal malignant melanomas or carcinomas.

     

    1. Soothe

     

    It’s inevitable. You may forget to apply sunscreen, or you may not apply enough. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer. You can apply a soothing botanical or a cooling gel to help reduce redness and inflammation while preventing nasty peeling at the same time.

     

    Apply your soothing skin balm generously at the first sight of that pink glow.

     

    1. Repair

     

    Ultraviolet light results in photoaging, even when you don’t burn your skin. Sunlight strips the skin of barrier lipids, which leads to inflammation, the production of reactive oxygen molecules, collagen destructing enzymes and much more.

     

    While a tan may look good, it really is a sign of skin damage. Treat your skin to oodles of age-fighting ingredients to help repair damage and to protect your skin against the aging effects of UV rays.

  • 3 Impacts of Aging on Your Body

    aging impacts on the bodyThey say that with age comes experience, and while that is true, time leaves its mark – not only on heart and mind, but also on the body. A lucky few seem to cheat the clock, but once the rest of us reach the ripe old age of thirty-plus, the mirror reveals the nasty truth. Perkiness is replaced by flab and bumpy cellulite replace the once sexy thighs. Let’s not even mention the mummy tummy… (But we will, because we have GREAT news for you this April!)

  • Preparing for a Happy Valentine’s Day

    valentines day fire and iceThe legend of Valentine’s day dates back centuries, to a time when three different St. Valentine’s were martyred on February 14th. The pope decided to honour them on this day. In later years, an English poet decided to link the day to love, because the date signifies the onset of the birds’ mating season in England and France.

  • Why Winter is the Best Season for Hair Removal

    Why Winter is the Best Season for Hair Removal

    winter hair removalIt’s winter, which – for many – means letting it all hang loose. We’re talking about unwanted hair! According to 90% of our clientele, shaving is the most bothersome, time consuming beauty task. First of all, most of them have to do it every day – and you know what happens when you’re in a rush! Nicks, cuts and regrowth itch are just some of the reasons why we hate shaving. To add insult to injury, the costs of shaving products can also add up over time.

    Don’t wait until the warmer weather of spring rolls around before you start thinking about hair removal, because then it will be too late to start a course of laser hair removal. If you leave it until spring or summer, you will have to choose between shaving, hair removal creams, waxing, or staying out of the sun. Continue reading >
