Get even skin tone
20 Apr 2012
There is one thing that can make or break how you feel about your appearance: your skin. It is always on show and, even though make-up can hide minor blemishes, there is nothing that boosts your confidence more than a beautiful complexion and even skin tone.
With our increasingly hectic lifestyles, a dedicated skin care routine can be hard to maintain. And, as we rush around in sun, wind and hail, our environment, long hours, central heating and air conditioning can all take their toll. All of these factors can cause skin damage and exacerbate existing skin conditions, such as acne and rosacea. This leaves our faces looking dull, blemished and uneven and our confidence at rock bottom.
Lucky for us, there are a range of skin treatments that can rejuvenate our complexion and treat a host of common skin conditions. This work by removing the upper layer of the skin, the epidermis and promoting healing and regeneration of the cells underneath.
One type of treatment available is skin peels. Also known as chemical peels, this treatment involves painting a chemical solution over the surface of the skin. This will clear away dead skin cells, which will be replaced by new, collagen-filled cells from beneath.
Alternatively, microdermabrasion can achieve similar results. This uses fine sand particles blasted at the skin, with an exfoliating effect. Microdermabrasion treatments also promote the production of collagen and other enzymes, helping your complexion to repair itself and leaving you with a fresh, dewy complexion and even skin tone.
Both treatments are excellent for addressing common skin conditions, such as sun damage, milia, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and rosacea. Which one is right for you will depend on the severity of your complaint.
