Menopause

When you get to menopause your body starts producing less Oestrogen. Oestrogen stimulates collagen production and natural oils in your skin, therefore lower amounts of this hormone can cause skin dryness and ageing. The following tips can help...

  • Symptoms include: Wrinkles, Redness, Dryness, Breakouts, Rashes, Facial hair & Oily Skin
  • Up your anti-aging products, again is inevitable and beautiful. Take it in your stride and glow while you are doing it.
  • Add moisture to your skin, use a hydrating cleanser and revitalising serum. Indulge in a rich night cream suitable for your skin type
  • Sun Damage may start to show itself now, look for a moisturiser which will help target pigmentation and age spots
  • Hot flushes... Find a refreshing face mist for those unexpected hot moments!

Time of the month

When you get your period your body has a surge of hormones, not only can that make you feel rubbish your skin can suffer too. Common problems can be...

  • Symptoms include: Sensitivity, Redness, Dryness, Breakouts & Oily T Zone
  • Get a spot treatment stick to treat the affected areas
  • Stick to a good routine, and make sure you cleanse, tone & moisturise. Always remove your makeup at night and get a good 'on the spot treatment stick' to treat those nasty breakouts
  • Get to know your skin, write down what happens to you can prepare yourself next month. Do you need a calming overnight mask? Do you need to use a different cleanser for breakouts?
  • Try a light weight hydrating serum to revitalise your skin, sometimes your skin can be a bit dull when you have your period

Teenage skin

You are full of new hormones and your skin doesn’t know what to think anymore, your main concerns may be the following:

  • Symptoms include: Breakouts, Acne, Blackheads, Oily T Zone, Blocked Pores & Sweating
  • The first instinct is to rid your face of oil and dry up those spots, sometimes that's the worse thing you can do. Using harsh foaming facial washes may remove all natural oils, stimulating your body to produce more oil
  • Stick to a good routine, and make sure you cleanse, tone & moisturise. Always remove your makeup at night and get a good 'on the spot treatment stick' to treat those nasty breakouts
  • Keep calm, everyone gets spots, it will get better!
  • If you feel you have acne, go and talk to your GP
