Get ready - Here comes the summer!
We may have had some unpredictable weather this spring, but there's no denying that summer is almost here! Soon, cardigans, tights and jeans will be ditched in favour of strappy vests, bare legs and cotton skirts.
While there's plenty of reason to rejoice at the long evenings and balmy afternoons, many of us will also have a hint of dread, as months of thick heavy clothes and battering weather can leave our skin looking far from its best.
There are a host of skin care treatments that you can rely on to give you a quick boost and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Here is a selection of the options available:
Laser Hair Removal
If constant plucking, waxing and shaving have got you feeling blue, laser hair removal could be the answer. Up to 95 per cent of hair is permanently removed by concentrated light beams, which destroy the hair follicle.
Skin peels are one of the ultimate complexion-rejuvenating procedures. A thin chemical solution is painted across the treatment area and penetrates the top layers of the skin or the epidermis to remove dead skin cells, hair, dirt and blockages. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which leaves your skin fresh, plump and clear.
If the results of a skin peel are what you're after but without the chemical treatment, microdermabrasion is a perfect alternative. Fine crystals are blasted at the skin, acting as an exfoliator and removing unwanted debris. Healing is promoted throughout the dermis, refreshing your complexion.
If you have blemishes, such as scarring or a build-up of pigmentation, laser resurfacing can leave your skin smooth and clear. Concentrated pulsing light targets uneven or thickened skin, removing imperfections but leaving healthy tissue.
