Rachel Weisz’ Skin Secrets

We have all felt the discomfort of tight, parched skin when we’ve been out in the sun for too long. This is what’s known as skin dehydration. When there is an imbalance between the intake of water and the amount of water required by skin cells to stay healthy, it results in a dehydrated condition.

It was reported this week that Hollywood actress Rachel Weitz, regularly makes trips to her dermatologist to ensure her skin is hydrated. Its is regularly reported in the press that Rachel looks far younger than her 40+ years, perhaps its all down to her hydrated skin.

One important thing to remember is that there’s a difference between dehydrated and dry skin, although the symptoms are similar. While dehydration is a deficiency of water in the skin, dryness is the result of a loss of oil in the skin. Don’t mistake oily skin for being moisture-loaded. Oily skin has more open pores and this can lead to greater water loss.

Skin is smooth and has elasticity because below the surface water, collagen and hyaluronic acid add volume from beneath. Loss of water means loss of volume, this ultimately results in the onset of wrinkles and ageing skin.

Natura’s Top Tips For Hydrated Skin

Treatment: Rehydration Fillers

Treatment areas include the face, neck, décolletage and hands; designed to replenish the hyaluronic acid lost through ageing, hence hydrating the skin and improving its elasticity and tone.

The procedure involves injecting multiple, small amounts of the hyaluronic acid into the skin

Skin care for Rosacea

If you suffer from rosacea, your skin is likely to be sensitive. So, how can you care for your skin if you have this condition?

Avene Skin Care

Rosacea is a chronic skin problem, characterised by flushing, persistent redness and lumps and bumps on the face and surrounding skin. It worsens with age if left untreated, and can also lead to skin thickening.

Skin Care

Consistent skin care can help with the day to day treating of rosacea.

Look out for rosacea irritants, which can make your skin flare up. Surveys have shown that alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol and peppermint have all been common irritation triggers. Your skin will be sensitive, so try to avoid harsh cleansing products such as astringents and exfoliating agents.

For sensitive skin, fragrance free skin care and make up products are essential, and even more so if you’re prone to rosacea. Fragrances added to skin care products are often irritating for skin, so make sure to invest in some gentle, allergy tested products.

Using minimal products will reduce the chances of irritating your skin and causing a flare up. You can also look for products that have multiple functions which will reduce the number of individual products you’re using.

Make sure to test all your skin care products first before applying them to your face. Try it on a small patch on your neck, for example – if you find the product irritates your skin, make a note of the ingredients and obviously avoid the product itself.

Rosacea irritants vary from person to person, so make sure you’re using your own skin as a guide.

Rosacea Treatments

If you want to tackle rosacea head on, Natura offer some targeted treatments that can give marked improvements. Using medical grade lasers, we can trigger the healing processes within the skin and blood vessels and address the problem at the source.

If you suffer from rosacea, sensitive skin care is extra important – but our gold standard of treatment can help you to reduce the appearance of the condition, restoring your self confidence and revealing a glowing complexion.

Vintage Style Swimwear Makes A Comeback

In a scene in the 1956 film, High Society, Grace Kelly kneels poolside pushing a model boat, True Love, across the still water. She wore a white halter-neck swimsuit, which ended with a short white, ruffled skirt. Never had the swimsuit seemed so elegant.

Swimwear trends don’t move in quite the same cycles as other fashion trends. That’s because it’s hard to reinvent the bikini or swimsuit: the need to balance functionality and design means that designers are limited to what they can actually do. So it would seem that many designers are drawing on vintage styles from the 1950-1960’s as inspiration for their collections this season.

Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection featured pristine, white understated swimwear, reminiscent of Grace’s in High Society.

With summer just around the corner, the high street is full of swimwear already. But what do all women want to go with their new beach wear?

A beach body.

At Natura we can help you look great in any swimwear with our cellulite treatment, Velashape. Popular amongst celebrities and sports stars alike, this treatment delivers fantastic results.

How Does It Work?

It works by precision-heating the upper layers of the skin and the deeper tissue, while specially designed rollers massage the area, smoothing the skin and combating the appearance of cellulite. This system of light vacuum and deep massage increases the metabolism of stored energy, shrinks the fat cells and vastly improves lymphatic drainage, banishing unsightly lumps and bumps.

Available from March 21st prices start at £150 a treatment, with discounts on courses.

Picture Perfect Jennifer’s Laser Obsession

Jennifer Aniston CO2 Laser

With a new film out and a recent induction to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Jennifer Aniston has had a great start to 2012. The actress looks far younger than her 43 years, but how is she maintaining that picture perfect complexion?

Last night the Marley and Me star opened up and revealed exactly how she manages to stay looking so youthful. Speaking to Conan O’Brien on his late-night chatshow, Jennifer revealed that she has become obsessed with laser therapy.

The former Friends star admitted that as a true ‘California Girl’ she spent years basking in the sun which despite making her feel good, left her skin with sun spots and the early signs of aging.

Aniston explained: ‘I did this thing called like, a peel. It’s extremely intense – you don’t realise you look like a battered burn victim for a week!’ she said,

She went on: ‘Then [the dead skin on your face] just kind of falls off – for eight days.’

Jennifer Aniston Fractional C02Jennifer Aniston Laser Peel

The CO2 laser Aniston is a fan of works by causing the outer layers of the epidermis to peel away as the skin heals. The laser heats the dermis, which stimulates the production of new collagen. As the new skin cells develop, the face becomes smoother, firmer and more youthful.

But you needn’t travel to Hollywood to achieve the same A-Lister results as Jennifer. At Natura Skin Clinic we offer the same cutting edge laser technology used to achieve Aniston’s fantastic results, the SmartXide Laser.

Perhaps Jennifer just let slip one of Hollywood’s biggest kept skin secrets.

Trying something new

For years you may have tried and tested hundreds of products to give your skin a certain lift. The amount of choice available in terms of beauty products is incredible and can send us into a spin. Some may find they spend uneccessary time picking up different products, reading exactly what they do and lets me honest, looking at the price.

We are lucky to have so many products and treatments which are tailored to certain skin types. If you suffer from dry, normal or oily skin, there is a whole universe of skin creams, cleansers and cosmetics which clean, moisturise, lift, reduce lines, highlight, create a glow, as you can see there is a product or treatment for pretty much every complaint.

Although you may have found something that works for you, sometimes it is a great idea to try something new. Why? Because your skin gets used to particular products and this doesn’t seem to provide the results that you may have originally found. Obviously if you have found something that gives you the best skin ever, we’re not saying get rid- we’re simply saying, if you find that you skin is still dry, or too oily, or you are not finding you get the effects you desire, it may be an idea to try a natural product or something completely different, like a longer lasting treatment.

Most beauty counters and specialist brands in the bigger department stores can offer great advice when it comes to your skin type and exactly what type of product will help you reduce fine lines, tighten skin, plump up skin and ultimately provide you with a more youthful look.

If you are curious about your skin and what products or treatments would suit you best from a professional perspective, you can seek advice from our skin specialist at Natura Skin Clinic, who is also a qualified Dr.

There are so many options available to improve your skin and your look, why not try something new?
