If you need one word as a New Year Resolution for your skin make it REPAIR. There are many products out there that actually damage the skin barrier with ineffective additives. The skin is our largest organ and as it is external, it needs a little help every now and again to function at its peak. Remember that your skin is the 1st line of defence for your body’s immune system. If healthy, it can prevent inflammation which in turn can lead to premature ageing, uneven texture, skin tone and changes in pigmentation. Firm, smooth and healthy…these are 3 words that can be simply stunning when they apply to your skin. They also indicate good diet, fitness, lack of stress and lack of physiological imbalance.

Many ‘high-street’ products are over-loaded with essences to make products smell and feel nice, but the real crux is to repair the external barrier and strengthen the collagen and elastin producing properties. As we age these substances are produced less and our skin subsequently thins and sags, unfortunately this is more pronounced in women. The products that you select should not be ridiculously expensive as the most effective ingredients are not over-manufactured, keep that in mind when consulting your skin specialist and get something that will make your skin truly beautiful x.
