Glow up for Christmas
A FAIR, radiant and dewy complexion is considered the epitome of beauty in Asia. With regular exposure to the sun and the natural ageing process, your skin becomes dull and lifeless.
How can you achieve a radiant youthful glow? Here, we share tips on how to revive dull skin and improve uneven skin tone to achieve a healthy, youthful complexion.
Let’s start with the basics. Causes of dull skin can be attributed to a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface, poor blood circulation and dehydrated skin.
With time, especially in post-menopausal women, you find that drinking eight glasses of water does not fully prevent dry skin from setting in. This is when “skinboosters” are recommended, to thoroughly hydrate your skin from within.
Profhilo is a skin injectable treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid (HA) to all the layers of your skin. It has five times more HA than an average “skinbooster” treatment, making it a treatment with the highest concentration of HA in the world. Profhilo is injected via the Bio Aesthetic Points technique, which are five injections points on each cheek, chosen due to their safety with the absence of large, critical vessels and nerve branches. This means that risks, discomfort and downtime are minimised and favourable effects are maximised.
Once injected, the product immediately starts spreading due to the high concentration of HA and its cohesive nature. It not only boosts and hydrates your skin, but also remodels the sagging tissue, by the stimulation of four different types of collagen and elastin, to restore your skin’s youthfulness.
Profhilo is suitable for anyone who is looking to improve their dry skin and is most effective for mild to moderate cases of skin laxity and fine lines.
To holistically improve your skin, keeping a healthy mind and body is important. Do start with sleeping eight hours per night, drinking enough water, and eating healthy food, to keep your skin supple, plump and hydrated.
Aerobic exercise is also an excellent option. You know that flush you get after a good sweat session? That’s blood rushing to your face! Regular aerobic exercise is great for maintaining a healthy circulation – which translates to radiant skin. Plus, exercise helps reduce cortisol, the hormone released when you’re stressed, and being less stressed is always going to do wonders for your skin.
