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.

Courteney Cox Opens Up About Ageing

Getting older in LA, in front of the scrutiny of the media can be a rough time. Especially when you’re the star of a global TV show for a decade, commanding a million dollars per episode in its final two series.

So its no wonder that 43 year old Courtney Cox admitted recently that she too treats her fine lines and wrinkles with a little help from one of her friends, Botox.

Gracing the cover of InStyle Magazine the actress talked openly about how she manages to keep herself looking young.

“Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. Sometimes I use Botox. Compared to most, I use it very sparingly”

Courteney is more recently know for her role in another hit TV show “Cougar Town” and with its success has brought many more public appearances where she faces the glare of the camera. Non-surgical treatments such as Botox, when administered professionally, can achieve quick and painless results. Courteney strikes the perfect balance between visible yet natural looking results.

Like many women Courteney recognises the importance of having the right people carry out the treatments.

“I don’t have a problem with any of that stuff; if it makes you feel better about yourself and it’s done properly, then fine.”

The actress went on to tell the magazine that she researches ways of keeping a youthful appearance. For many women getting older can be a hard time and more often than not it isn’t because they feel old, its because the tell tale signs of ageing are beginning to show.

“Getting older isn’t easy for anybody. Especially here in Los Angeles. So let’s be clear: looking youthful is something I do a lot of research on. Man, I could use some Botox right now.” 

So, if like Courteney you are thinking about having Botox, what should you look for?

1. How much should you have?

Botox shouldn’t give you a frozen face. Remember sometimes less is more.

2. Who should administer it?

If you want visible yet natural looking results ensure your Botox is administered by an experienced doctor.

3. Do your research

Speak to your doctor and get a professional opinion on whether Botox is the right treatment for you.

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?
