MOISTURISER IN A JAB

  It’s rocketed in popularity recently - and for good reason: It’s a game-changer for your skin. This injectable treatment is 100% hyaluronic acid, which is one of the most hydrating substances on the planet. You’ll find it in lots of moisturisers - but not in such high concentrations. And getting it deep into your skin is completely different to placing it on the surface! Profhilo infuses your skin with this hydrating ingredient, nourishing your skin long-term and giving you a beautiful glow for months. It’s like a “moisturiser in a jab”... ...And if that’s all it did, I’d still be raving about it. But that’s not the real reason Profhilo is so revolutionary. You see, it also stimulates the growth of collagen and stem cells in your skin - actually remodelling your skin from within. This plumps up your skin and thickens it at the deepest levels, giving it fantastic foundations - a bit like the scaffolding of a house - so it appears smoother and thicker, with less sa

2 TYPES OF WRINKLES - WHICH DO YOU HAVE?

As a doctor, I love science… And today I want to do an experiment with you!   All you have to do is go to a mirror, or open up Zoom or the camera on your phone. Take a long, hard look at your face.   Then smile as broadly as you can. Do lines suddenly appear around your eyes or forehead? How about some vertical lines around your mouth? Now stop smiling.   Have all those lines suddenly disappeared?   If so, you have a particular kind of wrinkle.   They’re called ‘dynamic lines’, because they appear when your face moves - and disappear again when your face relaxes.   What really happens is that when you smile, frown or squint your muscles contract. This pushes your skin together, making small folds.   You start seeing these kinds of lines in your 30s, often around your eyes, forehead and lips.   They’re completely different to the other type of wrinkles….   “Static lines” sadly stay put on your face, no matter what your expression.   They might appear at

TURKEY NECK?

Have you seen this photo yet?  (The pictures are from Dr Judy Todd ’s Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLTl80vBZry/) It’s making the rounds online… . …And it features a lady who lifted saggy skin on her face and neck, using radiofrequency energy. How would you feel, if the lines on your face smoothed out and your lax skin tightened, the way Judy’s have? ☺ Here's what she said :  “My kids, Jamie and Andy, started to call me turkey neck a few years ago in a loving and jokey way,” Judy, 61, told the newspapers. “I didn’t tell them anything about the treatments I was having, but they noticed the difference and recently they said, ‘Mom, what have you be en doing to your face?’ “I said, ‘what do you mean?’ To which they replied: ‘It looks much smoother’. “That was absolute gold dust! I mean if they’ve noticed and mentioned it, then it clearly has made a huge difference, and that made me very happy… “I’d say it's taken at least 10 years off my appearance… M

DON'T NEGLECT YOUR NECK

This is the #1 skincare mistake - Neglecting the neck!     Have you ever been in conversation with a woman, and thought… “That’s weird - her neck is a completely different color to her face!”   It happens occasionally, when people apply foundation to their face…   …But stop at their jawline.   So while they’ve painted their face one color, their neck is still a different shade. It’s completely possible you make a similar mistake…   …Not with your makeup but with your skincare products.   I see it the whole time… Patients are fanatic about applying creams, lotions and serums to their face… But they stop at their jawline and completely ignore their neck and decolletage. And when I say “I see it”, I mean that quite literally… Because when you stop your skincare at your jawline, you end up looking like two different people above and below your chin!   Your face might still look relatively youthful and smooth… …But your neck gives away your age - it’s wrinklier
