For many women, symptoms of the menopause can be more than challenging.
As it affects women mentally, physically AND emotionally, stress levels, hot flushes, anxiety and lack of quality sleep are just some of the very many (!) menopausal concerns.
Skin changes such as dryness, sensitivity, pigmentation and even changes in skin texture and tone can become evident, creating laxity.
There are also the horrid hormonal breakouts that some ladies experience (adult acne) can be a lot to cope with.
My job is to recognise these changes in my clients complexions and to advise which procedures and products are best suited to them.
The first step is to aknowledge that as skin changes occur, needs also change, and using the correct products and treatments for your unique skin type and concerns is vital.
There are many in salon treatments that can improve the skin to boost collagen and elastin production, fade pigment, hydrate and balance and even remove unwanted facial hair.
However, investing in an AM-PM skincare routine at home provides the oppertunity to show some self care, some love and mindfulness to oneself.
Part of our consultation process is to find out about YOU and what you need, and this is particulary true when devising a skincare routine at home.
If you would like assistance to do this, or would like to book a consultation to discuss menopausal skin comcerns, get in touch. You can DM, Text or WhatsApp.

A wild turkey is instantly recognizable for many reasons.
These birds are big, sometimes tipping the scales at more than 20 pounds — but what most often catches our eyes is the bright red skin that hangs from the birds' necks.
This fleshy, bumpy skin has a name: the wattle.
Much as it looks beautiful on these birds, its not so attractive on humans!
From the age of about 40, neck skin and muscles become loose and the skin becomes less able to shrink due to neglect, weight loss and weakened muscles. This can also create a lined, banded appearance.
As the neck is also one of the bodys most neglected areas, it can add years onto our true age.
Fat deposits under the jaw can cause sagging and loss of tone which exacerbate the look of the neck.
If your aging neck is truly bothering you, we offer a few non-surgical treatments worth considering. For optimal results, courses of treatments are always advised but if followed properly, the treatments can help to improve the quality and appearance of the skin on your neck:
These treatments offer lifting, sculpting and firming benefits for the neck. Utilising 4 modalities at once ( RF, InfraRed, Vaccum Suction & Lymphatic Drainage). They are pain free with no down time.
⚡️Aqua Microdermabrasion: Exfoliates using a series of serums to deeply cleanse lined areas, which increases hydration and plumping. Again, no pain or discomfort or down time involved.
⚡️Chemical Peels: Our IMAGE Skincare Wrinkle Lift, Wrinkle Lift Forte & Perfection Lift skin peels are ideal treatments to improve texture and tone of the neck area. (Patch test will be required prior to teatment).
⚡️Intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser treatments: Skin Rejuvenation helps to induce collagen production in the skin hence tightening and toning.It will also help to lighten and brighten the skin.( Patch test is required prior to treatment).
⚡️Purehydro Radio Frequency: A very relaxing way to improve skin elasticity and tightening the neck area. Why not include it in your facial too!
Some other anti-ageing tips for the neck include:
?Wear wide-brimmed hats, light neck scarves when outdoors.
?Always use a daily sunblock with an SPF50 - every day of the year.
?Use cosmecutical skin care products that will exfoliate and moisturize the skin to improve quality and appearance. We use & recommend IMAGE Skincare Max Stem Cell Neck Lift for this area!
?Have a good daily AM & PM skincare routine that includes your neck and decollete.
