Spring brings warmer weather, less clothing and hayfever (if you are lucky, then not the last one!). Due to these factors, the skin on the face and body requires a very different skin care regime than in winter. Sydney skin rejuvenation clinic You by Sia believe that addressing skin concerns from the inside out is the best way to skin rejuvenation, so here are their Spring 2015 skin rejuvenation tips and tricks.
Updating flaky, dry winter skin
Your skin responds to seasonal changes in weather just as it does to lifestyle or diet changes. It is important to anticipate these changes and plan accordingly, especially when you require the services of a skin specialist such as You by Sia who can work with you to decide a skin rejuvenation plan.
If your skin is flaky, dry, dull, rough or even wrinkled and older-looking after winter, it may just be due to the fact that your skin has been hidden under layers of clothing or rubbing against boots. Cracked cuticles, scaly patches and inflamed skin is quick to respond to neglect.
Try a head-to-toe moisturiser to deep moisturise the skin on your face and body. Dry and ageing skin responds to Pure Phix, a sulphur compound which supports and promotes the appearance of youthful, radiant skin by supporting keratin, elastin, collagen and cartilage production. Research has found that as we age, our bodies can become deficient in sulphur, an essential mineral that keeps cell walls permeable so that nutrients can freely flow and toxins can be easily discarded by the body. Sulphur has also been proven to assist in improving the appearance of eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, dermatitis, scaly skin and dandruff. Available in 210g and 1.1kg sizes.
Understanding what your skin rejuvenation program needs
Do not over-scrub, over-clean or over-treat your skin in-between seasons. It is natural that skin may perform the way it does in the elements, so understanding your skin can really pay off in terms of hydration, exfoliation and protection.
Irritated, red or itchy skin may be alleviated by hydrating your skin throughout the day, especially in a new season. A cosmeceutical solution to spring skin complaints, Minc provides hydration and protection from the harmful, drying effects of the sun and is packed with a combination of high-strength zinc and effective antioxidants. Size: 50mL
Using carefully selected botanicals and a complex of fruit-based amino acids and enzymes, this mask gently resurfaces the top layer of skin to remove excess sebum and improve the look of hyperpigmentation on the face. Gently exfoliating, the mask delicately refreshes and refines skin, resulting in a softer more even looking complexion. With a host of natural botanicals and a soothing gel-based formula, Erase can refresh the look of skin without causing redness or irritation. Powerful antioxidants help support skin from the inside out, promoting improved elastin and collagen production for a supple, youthful looking appearance. Size: 50mL
Irritated, red or itchy skin may be alleviated by hydrating your skin throughout the day, especially in a new season. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and rosacea-affected skin, Alleviate AM is a daytime serum designed to address the appearance of skin conditions such as rosacea and redness.
Check your make-up products are not out of date
Many skin hair and beauty products have expiry dates to ensure the contents remain effective on your skin. After winter it is a good practice to check each product and dispose of any that are out of date according to the expiration date on the product, or have changes in the texture, colour or smell, including:
- Sunscreen: read the compulsory expiry date on the packaging ingredients
- Lipsticks are worn externally so OK but may change in colour or texture
- Body lotions: change in consistency, smell or colour
- Liquid Foundations and facial moisturisers may have antioxidants or fruit acids
- Eye cream: definitely do not use after expiry or before if product has changed in smell or texture

Preparing for laser hair removal
Less clothes means hair removal, and if you have neglected this part of your skincare regime, spring means a major overhaul in treatment requirements for both body and face. Why not investigate laser hair removal? It is a more permanent and long-term solution than traditional shaving or waxing, and included in your seasonal skin regime, becomes less onerous over time. You by Sia laser technology uses a beam of light to target hair follicles in your selected area, leaving the surrounding section unaffected. As the follicles become weaker, hair growth lessens and eventuates in smooth, hair free skin. Popular laser hair removal treatment areas include the bikini line, legs, and underarms for women, and the back, chest and shoulders for men. With six conveniently located clinics offering industry leading expertise and the most cutting edge laser technology in the country, You by Sia are the best laser hair removal clinics in Sydney, and can advise a laser hair removal plan during a pre-treatment consultation. Within 8-10 treatments, depending on the size of the area being targeted, you will see longer-lasting results from a quick and painless treatment procedure.
So spring into action on your skin rejuvenation tips and tricks, starting from the inside out.
