Which Type of Skin Care Guru are you?
We all fall into one type or another, especially if we do not have an established skin care routine. See which category you fall into below and what Skin Care approach is recommended by skin specialist Sia Hendry, for your ‘Guru’ Type:
1. The “Self-Analyser” Guru
- Do you self-analyse and diagnose your skin via the internet?
- Did you see it on Google and thought that it would work for your skin?
There is nothing wrong about doing some preliminary analysis before deciding which approach to take, but wouldn’t it be more time-saving to make a consultation with an experienced skin specialist who can make an educated skin diagnosis?
Not all sources of information on the internet are correct, and most contain general advice only, which is not relevant for your unique skin condition, history and skin care routine – it is best to go to an experienced and established clinic first. The rest…well, is marketing! Make an appointment with You By Sia for a complimentary skin analysis to start your 2016 in an informed and relevant way.
2. The “Done Nothing” Guru
- Are you the person who has not done anything to their skin, as there is nothing visibly wrong with it?
When the skin is younger (and without debilitating skin conditions such as acne), the need to look after skin for many usually extends to a very basic over the counter moisturiser and sunscreen, if that!
However, the steps you take – or took – to care for the appearance and needs of the skin on your face and body then, is reflected in what you see now – or will see in the future.
Try the Get Me Started Skincare Pack: suitable for all skin types, including acne, sensitive and rosacea-affected skin, it includes:
- DELICATE CLENZ Gentle Cleansing Foam (60ml) – Gently remove surface build-up on your face while achieving a deep, refined cleanse. With a light, foaming formula, Delicate Clenz can balance the appearance of skin without drying or irritating.
- SHIFT AM Pigment Fading Serum (15ml) – Daytime serum designed to brighten the appearance of ageing, pigmented skin. Also recommended for use alongside laser pigmentation removal treatments to promote optimal results.
- SHIFT PM Pigment Fading Serum (15ml) – Works through the night to help diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while ensuring skin is supple, hydrated, replenished and renewed! Gentle enough to be used alongside laser pigmentation removal treatments and is typically recommended to promote optimal results.
- MINC Natural Moisturising Zinc 20% (15ml) – Providing hydration and protection from the harmful, drying effects of the sun, MINC won’t clog pores, ensuring skin can breathe and maintain moisture throughout the day.

3. The “Need it Now” Guru (a very impatient Guru indeed!)
- Are you someone who (urgently) needs to do something after neglecting your skin for years?
In the case of wrinkles, there are many treatments that can aid in your skin rejuvenation, but remember: skin care is a process that works from the inside out, so achieving results depends on a holistic approach to managing stress, sun protection, and diet.
If you smoke cigarettes, then of course your skin will be affected on many levels, one of which is oxygen intake through the skin – this will cause the skin to look less luminous and bright over time, and eventually dry it out, especially under the eyes and around the mouth where fine lines and furrows will give an impression of a “cat’s bum”!
It is never too late to reverse the current state of the skin on your face and body! You By Sia offers skin rejuvenation treatments for plumping and skin needling, pigmentation removal and facials.
To gently erase the signs of ageing, You By Sia recommends Skin Needling with the Regen Pen. Designed to help promote younger looking skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, dull skin and scar tissue. We can’t sing the praises of this skin rejuvenation treatment any louder!
With over ten years’ experience performing advanced facial rejuvenation treatments, You By Sia have a thorough understanding of the factors that contribute to skin ageing, wrinkles, fine lines, pitted scars and a lacklustre complexion. Their Regen Pen skin needling service has been developed to counteract the loss of collagen, elastin and proper cell renewal that supports a youthful, even complexion.
How does the Regen Pen work?
The Regen Pen gently slides over the surface of the skin, penetrating micro-fine needles through the skin. These fine micro-lesions trigger the skin’s healing response, promoting the release of new collagen and elastin production to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.
How does skin needling compare to other treatments?
Treatment with the Regen Pen can be an effective alternative to cosmetic surgery, laser resurfacing and chemical peels. While these procedures carry significant risk of burning, scarring, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, treatment with the Regen Pen is effective, comfortable and affordable. The results of skin needling are comparable to those of chemical and CO2 laser resurfacing, without the downtime.
4. The Sceptical Guru
- Have you tried everything and nothing works on your skin, or makes it worse?
Sia will not tell you what you want to hear, she will tell you what you need to know. This honest and natural approach to skin care and skin rejuvenation is unique in the clinical skin care field, and will save your skin – and wallet – in years to come from investing in a program that works, both in products and services designed to enhance your skin condition at whatever stage it is at.
Skin responds to particular conditions and over time, with the correct diagnosis, products and treatments, will improve. If the products you are currently using were working, then you would not have these concerns.
Sia has an in-depth understanding about the skin, skin conditions and the factors that lead to skin ageing, through extensive experience with years of research, knowledge and proven results for her clients.
Her interest and passion for advanced skincare management has seen her use deep scientific knowledge to deliver outstanding skin rejuvenation results. Some of Australia’s leading beauty editors have acknowledged that her results surpass anything they have experienced.
Through performing thousands of treatments, Sia’s believes that every regime should start with a thorough skin analysis – focusing on the skin’s structure and anatomy, looking past the surface layers to understand how treatments can be improved for better results.
Sia discovered that cosmeceuticals are most effective when delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. Thus began Sia’s core philosophy, which remains the mainstay of her business today: “Caring for skin from the inside out”.
5. The Unrealistic Guru
Sia asks two questions when she meets a client, which establish the state of a client’s skin and how she approaches his or her skin care program:
- “How would you like to look?”
- “What most concerns you about your skin?”
Often what we see in our own complexion, and skin on the face or body, is not actual reality. It seems odd that this is the case but our physical appearance is informed by how we feel about ourselves…in other words, self esteem. The other side of how we perceive our skin, skin conditions and treatments is in the diagnosis and documentation of the condition.
Take cellulite for example. Experienced by nearly all women, it can be managed with various levels of treatment, but how the results are measured can be very different from woman to woman, depending on how realistic or urgent they deem the cellulite issue to be.
Summer can also encourage the reduction or treatment of cellulite as most summer clothing can be revealing or tighter (like swimwear).
You By Sia’s multi-modal approach to skin care provides a specialist cellulite treatment and cellulite reduction service, which starts by documenting the skin condition in the selected area and through consultation with their experienced skin specialists in clinics across Sydney.
The use of advanced multi-polar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses allow them to direct controlled heat to compounded fat cells, quickly altering stubborn cellulite into a 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.
You By Sia’s state-of-the-art cellulite treatments will help you say sayonara to unwanted dimples! With a dedication to proven, effective treatments, we have spent a lot of time refining our service offering to deliver the most effective, long-term results for our valued clients.
