Microdermabrasion

Winter can be cruel to your skin. Months of cold, harsh weather dehydrate and chap your complexion, leaving your skin feeling − and looking − a lot older than it actually is.

Exfoliation is a great way to refresh your skin, but if you’re looking to go one step further, microdermabrasion could be the answer. This exfoliating and anti-ageing treatment is one of the gentlest on the market, using ultra-fine microcrystals which are hard enough to scrub away rough or dead skin – without causing any damage.

By vacuuming up dead skin cells to reveal the new skin underneath, microdermabrasion also encourages the growth of a smooth new layer, stimulating your skin’s production of collagen to give your complexion a plumper, healthy glow.

Chemical peels

While microdermabrasion physically scrubs away dead layers of skin, chemical peels instead use mild acids which interact with your skin and cause it to peel, freshening your complexion and reducing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and pigmentation.

Chemical peeling may not sound pretty, but the process is actually far less intense than the name suggests. You can choose between light, medium and deep peels, depending on how dramatic you want to results to be. Many people decide to start with a light, superficial peel − perfect if you want a fast-track route to a youthful, glowing complexion for an upcoming holiday or festival.

Remember though, chemical peels can make your skin significantly more sensitive to sun exposure. For this reason, try to avoid spending too much time in the sun until your skin has finished peeling − and don’t forget to wear a high factor sunscreen!

Dermarolling

Another way to freshen your skin for summer is to book yourself a series of dermarolling treatments.

This form of microneedling works by delivering thousands of controlled injections beneath the skin’s surface. These ‘wounds’ trigger your skin’s natural healing response, causing your cells to create new, stronger collagen and elastin to repair the injuries.

The result of this repairing process is a smoother, healthier-looking complexion and a envy-inducing glow. Plus, your skin’s frantic production of collagen and elastin will continue for up to 12 months after your first treatment − so you can expect your summer glow to last until the end of summer, and beyond.

The best part? Dermarolling is virtually painless, with many people actually finding the process soothing. Who said you have to suffer for good skin?

How to protect your skin during the summer

Yes, winter can be terrible for your skin, but summer even more so.

As the temperature hots up, it’s easy to start lusting after that straight-back-from-holiday tan and forget the damage that the sun’s UVA and UVB rays inflict on your skin. You’ve probably heard it before, but we’ll say it again: to save your skin, it’s hugely important that you wear sunscreen throughout the whole summer − rain or shine.

Sun-damage is one of the leading causes of skin cancer and premature ageing, so the best thing you can do to keep a youthful complexion is to slap on a broad spectrum sunscreen and avoid sunbeds at all costs.
