How to Look After your skin as the seasons change
Do you need a revamp to your skin care routine to get you through autumn & winter?
As we get ready to switch our central heating back on and with a combination of freezing wind and low-humidity levels you are likely to experience dryness and flakiness. The cold weather is tough on your skin and the drier the air, the more moisture it sucks out of your skin. If you are suffering with dry tight skin and notice a winter rash or eczema it’s time to revamp your skin care routine. It is essential for this reason to maintain good hydration levels, both on the inside and outside of your body. Your current daily routine which should include a cleanser, exfoliator, moisturiser and SPF cream may not be suffice throughout the autumn & winter. To get the most out of your skin and keep it hydrated introducing serums into your daily routine can not only protect but also add valuable hydration to your skin. If you are suffering with dry, tight irritated skin ensure your serums contain some of these key ingredients:
Sodium Hyaluronate a form of hyaluronic acid, hydrates by drawing water into the outer layers from deep within the skin.
Aloe which contains amino acids, vitamins and minerals to help sooth and calm irritation caused by the cold weather.
Vitamin B5 acts as a humectant to lock in moisture and hydrate.
Gluconolactone which works to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and help with hydration.
Sea Whip has an active ingredient called gorgonian extract which has a powerful anti-irritant and soothing properties.
Growth factors help boost elastin and collagen production and provide protection against free radical damage.
Retinol A to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, strengthen skin and increase cell turnover.
Remember to maintain good internal hydration by drinking a minimum of 2 1/2 litres of water daily and continue to wear your SPF throughout the winter months.

Have you ever wondered what actually happens during a Facial Peel?
The word “Peel” can sound a little scary! Coupled with a lot of horror stories about painful red flaky skin that makes you hide indoors for a week……it’s no wonder that we find a lot of our clients worry about having a facial peel.
AlumierMD offers a range of light to medium peels to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Don’t believe us?? Come and see us on Friday 9th November when you will be able to watch a facial peel demonstration and speak to our highly trained skin care therapists about exactly what they do and what to expect. Everyone is different, so our skin therapists can offer bespoke peels to make sure its right for your skin type and condition. In fact, they are so bespoke, that they tailor the peel like a jigsaw puzzle on your face to tackle different conditions in different areas. The live demos are happening at 11am and 1pm.

Clare qualified as a beauty therapist years ago! (Sorry Clare!). Her love of skincare started as she watched her clients grow in confidence as their skin improved and this inspired her to study further in this field. She currently lectures in advanced skincare techniques and enjoys sharing her knowledge with up and coming skincare therapists. We know that Clare is going to be a real asset to our team here, because she shares our passion for helping people with skin conditions and maintaining skin health.
Abi has 7 years experience in the industry and when we asked her why she wanted to join us she said “ I am passionate about skincare, the results that people gain from correctly prescribed products can build their confidence and make them feel fabulous and I love being a part of that” She is looking forward to expanding her knowledge from Chrissy & Clare and learning new and advanced techniques that becoming available here.
