2016 Skin Care Resolutions: Don’t be Envious, Glow with Your Own Beautiful Skin
It is time for a change. You do not want to be the woman who is always wishing that your body could look like that woman’s on tv, or if only you had that glowing, unblemished complexion, like that woman at the café down the road.
Don’t Be Envious – make a New Years Resolution to change your skin care to get that Beauty Glow with immaculate skin.
Let’s start with your skin, and make some resolutions to effectively treat skin conditions and recurring hair problems. By considering cellulite treatment or removal, or acne treatment – if relevant – you will gain confidence in your body, skin appearance and texture – which will help you keep your New Years’ Resolution!
Resolution 1 – Treat Cellulite
Making a New Years’ Resolution to reduce or minimise cellulite involves more than a wish or a one-day plan, but starting with an experienced skin specialist is essential. Knowledge about cellulite, and where it comes from, forms part of the solution to treating, reducing or removing it.
Where Cellulite comes from
Cellulite is caused by the build-up of compounded fat cells within the structural support layer of your skin. Helped along by weak connective tissue, genetics, hormones, lack of exercise, excess fat, muscle tone or poor circulation, these underlying fat deposits begin to push through the connective tissue under your skin, often around the thigh and buttocks areas.
How to get rid of Cellulite
We know that the appearance of cellulite cannot be improved unless the fat within these cells is converted from a solid state to a liquid state in order to be removed. Despite an array of expensive over-the-counter creams claiming to banish cellulite, this condition is most effectively addressed at the core of the problem, not just at the symptomatic level.
You by Sia uses a proven, multi-modal approach to target cellulite within the skin’s structure. The use of advanced multi-polar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses allow us to direct controlled heat to compounded fat cells, quickly altering the solid fat within the fat cells into liquid form. This process also induces the skin’s natural healing and strengthening response, sending collagen and elastin to the structural layer to aid in cell renewal and skin firming.
Tip: The benefit that a cellulite treatment program with a skin specialist provides is long-term, with qualified and expert advice that is targeted to your body and skin needs.
Before & After Cellulite Treatment: Tummy
Jody completed our course of RF cellulite treatments on her tummy and after 6 weeks managed to shift 35% of the excess weight. Paired with healthy eating and exercise she was thrilled with her results.
Resolution 2 – Treat Acne
Seen as the ‘Teen’ skin condition, acne can unfortunately affect you at different points throughout life. Knowledge about acne, and where it comes from, forms part of the solution to treating, reducing or removing it.
Where Acne comes from
As a teen, acne vulgaris (meaning common type) shows up on the face, neck, upper back and chest, as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or cysts. It is common at puberty and usually clears up by the end of the teens, but can appear in adult life also. Causes of adult acne are usually stress and diet related, which is why at You By Sia we advocate a Skin Care approach that looks at Beauty From the Inside Out.
Sia says: “Treating the top of the skin without addressing the causes underneath is like painting a crappy canvas with expensive oils!”
The cycle of acne is related to hair – yes, really! The hair follicles in your skin contain oil glands which make sebum, a natural lubricant for hair and skin. Usually sebum production is adequate, but when the body begins to mature and develop, excess sebum production can be stimulated by hormones, which causes the next stage in the skin disruption: skin bumps!
Pores getting clogged by excess sebum can cause skin bumps such as whiteheads (a closed pore bulging out of the skin), blackheads (open pore but clogged), and pimples (bacteria, skin cells or sebum under the wall of the skin), swelling and redness, which is the start of acne. Any deeper pores that are clogged can turn into cysts – each of these types of clogged pores can be painful and make your skin texture uneven, sore or react to products being used. This is why it is essential to know what acne is and how it can be addressed, both by you and your skin specialist.
How to get rid of Acne
Don’t touch your face, it only serves to add more bacteria to the already inflamed skin areas that are exposed to pollution, makeup and other everyday factors. If you use hair sprays or have long hair, keep them off your face also.
Wash your face after exercising or when in environments with oil or pollution. Try Delicate Clenz, which provides a deep cleanse for normal to sensitive skin types, ensuring skin looks radiant and refreshed. Infused with a potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants, this cleanser works to refresh the appearance of the skin while gently removing all traces of makeup and surface build-up.
This product is formulated to match the skin’s natural PH level and contains gentle moisturisers to prevent drying. Suitable for normal to sensitive skin.
Before & After Acne Treatment: Face
Michelle turned to You by Sia after suffering from severe acne, inflammation and infection on her face. Michelle was reacting negatively to the products she had been applying, which contained both benzoyl peroxide and glycolic acid. We recommended an advanced cosmoceutical regime and a peel infusion, which improved the condition of her skin.
These results were achieved in just six weeks.
Treatment also normalised the oil production level of Michelle’s skin and she reported to us less frequent breakouts and an overall improvement in skin condition following treatment.
