3 Ways To Kick Start Your New Year: Part 1 Skincare

3 Ways to kick start your new year skincare

2016 is finally here and I'm a big believer in getting the new year off to a great start.  Regardless of what goals I've set myself for the year ahead, I always like to ensure that I start my new year feeling calm and relaxed, pampered and looked after and detoxed and energetic.

With this in mind, I decided to start a mini series on my blog where, I'm going to show you exactly how to achieve that.    Over the next three days, I'll be showing you three ways to kick start your new year, starting with skincare.

1. Go for a facial or skin treatment

I'm pretty strict when it comes to my skincare routine which my skin does thank me for throughout the year.  However after the party season, even my skin needs a little TLC.

The best way to give your skin a boost is to go for a facial.  I don't know anyone who doesn't want to take care of their skin or keep it looking youthful for as long as possible.  Having great looking skin on the outside can give you glowing confidence that shine from the inside out so its worth taking care of it.  I always like to give my skin a break from makeup as much as possible at the beginning of the year and I go for a facial to give my skin a boost.  I like to look at what is concerning me the most about my skin and then I pick a treatment that I think will benefit my skin the most.

As I'm rapidly approaching my thirty, I am really starting to become concerned with fine lines on my skin.  At 27, I have noticed them starting to form and while I'm lucky that my skin is mostly clear from spots and blemishes and I don't have any acne scarring, I am concerned about the inevitable ageing of my skin.  The last thing that I want is for it to age too prematurely so if I can have a skin treatment to retain and restore my skins youthful appearance then I'm all for it.

When I heard about the Dermatude facial skin treatment at Hooker & Young in Ponteland, I knew that it would be the best thing for my skin.  Dermatude uses anti-ageing meta therapy to rejuvenate, restore and hydrate the skin.

When you have a Dermatude facial, you're first given a thorough consultation by the beautician before being treated to a relaxing cleanse and tone before having a glycolic peel applied to your face.  This is an acidic mask that has an exfoliating effect on the skin by helping to lift and remove the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and unblocking congested areas and blocked pores.

Then you move onto the Dermatude skin treatment which is designed for anyone over the age of 25 as this is when your skin first starts to show signs of ageing.  It is proven to be a very effective facelift alternative.  The dermatude machine looks like a pen with a number of very fine needles in it that is moved over the skin to make tiny, invisible micro-perforations in the epidermis of the skin.  These micro-perforations cause a little trauma to the skin so that it instinctively works to repair itself naturally by producing collagen and elastin.  As a result the skin becomes more firmer and theres a visible reduction in fine lines.

The meta therapy that Dermatude uses to perforate the skin helps the active ingredients used in their skincare products to be absorbed more effectively by the skin.  In fact, the absorption is said to be up to 83% more effective than using skin creams and masks.

The Dermatude skin treatment doesn't hurt but I found that it did tickle towards my ears and it was a little sore across my forehead, presumably as it isn't an area thats particularly fleshy.  My skin was a little red afterwards which I was expecting and this soon settled.  The next morning, my skin was still a little pink and by lunchtime, any discolouration had completely settled.  My skin certainly felt tighter and looked more perfected.

I think that this facial would be fabulous for anyone with visible signs of ageing, hyper pigmentation and many other skin concerns.  With this facial, it certainly gives your skin a boost and whether you have one treatment, or a course as recommended, it certainly gets your skin off to a great start for the new year.  Then you can follow and maintain a great skincare routine to help your skin maintain a youthful appearance.  I'd definitely recommend it and the service at Hooker and Young was, as always, fabulous.  The beautician there really takes her time to explain each step to you so that you know exactly what treatment you're having completed on your skin and what the benefit will be.

Whats more, I've managed to secure readers of WhatLauraLoves a fabulous discount.

  11. This facial treatment seems to give good results. I had salicylic acid peel on my skin few weeks back and it really helped to control my acne breakouts and visibly improve my skin.
