Do you feel like you’re stuck in a skincare rut? Doing facial after facial but seeing no improvement? Sometimes doing a lot of one thing isn’t enough and doing a little bit of everything can be better. Other times things we perceive as beneficial can be detrimental. It’s hard to know what to do, so below are some of the most common factors inhibiting results when it comes to creating your best skin.
Consistency is Key
The first step in taking care of your skin is committing to a home-care routine specifically targeting your concerns. How you take care of your skin everyday can count for as much as 80% of your results so making sure you are cleansing, feeding and protecting it properly are very important! Shops and department stores are full of products for all skin types and concerns but how to know whats right for you can be overwhelming. Talk to a skin therapist about your concerns and your interest in starting a routine, they will be able to assess your skin and recommend the best products for you specifically. Here at Mediskin we offer free skin consultations and have a routine for all faces and budgets.
Make a Plan of Action
Not all skin treatments are created equal! Some treatments are designed to be relaxing and pampering, offering restoration on a superficial level while others offer very tangible results but may be resurfacing and require some downtime. Results come when you are doing the right treatments at the right time, while some skins will benefit from the same treatment done consistently at well spaced intervals, other faces will need a multi-disciplinary approach doing a range of treatments to target a number of concerns. During a skin analysis your therapist will be able to advise you about treatments that will get you the best results. Your homecare routine will help to prolong and reinforce the effects of treatments. This month at Mediskin we have an offer on courses of skin treatments- Get 6 treatments for the price of 4!

Put Your Best Face Forward
If you’re on the right treatment plan and using the best products for your skin but still not seeing change it could be in your make up! Skin is receptive to all substances that are applied to it. Traditional cosmetic make up can contain a lot of chemicals and oil which can irritate skin. Mineral make up contains inert ingredients only, meaning they are all of natural origin and wont disturb the skin’s natural functioning. By swapping from cosmetic to mineral make up you will maintain and protect the effects of your homecare products and treatments. Next time you are in for your facial ask your therapist about the Jane Iredale “1 minute makeover”, your therapist can colour match and apply your perfect version of mineral make up for you. Containing SPF and other skin nourishing ingredients, it will help cover any post facial erythema without clogging your pores.
