So much talk about vitamin C at the moment in the world of skincare, I'm sure you are wondering what exactly are the benefits of vitamin c for the skin?

Vitamin c is an anti-oxidant so it's role in collagen synthesis is vital. Vitamin c helps to protect your skin from the effects of aging. It's a potent anti-oxidant that can neutralise free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are atoms or molecules with an unpaired electron (for all you physics lovers!!) Free radicals damage the skin and cause aging.

Vitamin c helps your skin to repair itself and not only does it neutralise free radicals it can also reverse DNA damage. Research shows that vitamin c may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet B radiation and can prevent consequences of long-term sun exposure.

There are so many vitamin c products on the market now that it can be very confusing which to choose so here are my own personal favourites:

A really good one to start with is Serum 10 by Skinceuticals. This is a potent serum which is applied every morning after your cleansing step.  Because of it's potency it does not need to be applied at night The price point for this product reflects the efficacy of the serum and it's the one serum I choose to recommend for my clients at m clinics with concerns about aging, fine lines, wrinkles, skin discolouration.

Once your skin has become familiar with Serum 10, I would highly recommend moving up the ladder to another anti-oxidant serum. Either CE Ferulic of Phloretin, your aesthetician will recommend either of these depending on your skin type. These products are the gold standard when it comes to antioxidant serums, you'll find it hard to find better than these on the current market. The science behind these two serums is unbelievable.

If you're a Murad skincare fan, then you'll want to try their Vitamin C product that is currently extremely popular and getting superb reviews, it's called Active Radiance Serum. This is a fast-acting serum with which you will see an improvement in the clarity and brightness in your skin after about one week of use. The texture of this product is very different to the Skinceuticals serums and many prefer it because it has a lovely silky feel on the skin. Definitely worth investing in to improve the radiance and luminousity of your skin.

This is just a brief overview of a couple of great vitamin c products on the market, as usual I would be recommending getting advice from your aesthetician before you splurge on any vitamin c products to make sure your skin is suitable.

More on the benefits of vitamin c coming up during the month of May so check back with us soon!

Love your skin

Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse!!!

Wash your face twice a day, morning + evening but also make sure that you double cleanse every time. No point in applying serums and creams to skin which isn't cleansed thoroughly! We at Laserderm are not fans of wipes because you're not really cleaning the skin with a quick swipe of a baby wipe or facial wipe. You've got to clean those pores so that once you apply your serums and creams the skin will be able to absorb these products properly and utilise the ingredient so that you get the maximum benefit.

Here are some super cleansers and top sellers at the moment at our clinics:

1. Refreshing cleanser (Murad)

2. Essential C cleanser (Murad)

3. Renewing Cleansing cream (Murad)

4. Special cleansing gel  (Dermalogica)

5. Simply Clean (Skinceuticals)

Stop by if you're interested in trying a sample of any of these, you won't be disappointed!!

If you've managed to visit one of our clinics I'm sure you'll have been told how important it is to keep your skin protected from UVA and UVB rays and I'm sure you'll have noticed the Laserderm staff are obsessed when it comes to SPF's & anti-oxidants! So we have decided to give you our top sellers and favourites when if comes to choosing an SPF for your skin.

Why should you protect your skin? ........Protecting your skin from the sun's UVA & UVB rays is an important step to avoid damage.

What should you look out for when choosing an spf?......Look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with and spf30 or higher.

Must haves from Murad skincare range.......Invisiblur spf30.........Essential C Day Moisture........Perfecting Day Cream spf30

Must haves from Skinceuticals range......Ultra facial defense spf50 ...........Always use an anti-oxidant serum under your spf, we LOVE Phloretin and CE ferulic, nothing on the market comes close to these gold standard serums, we think!!!

Summer has finally arrived and with this sunshine brings a lot of energy! So if you've been thinking about being pro-active with regards to your skin then the Pomegranate anti-oxidant facial is a really good starting point and worth giving a shot.  It's one of our most popular facials with customers in their 20's & 30's but is actually suitable for pretty much all skin types.  

What are the benefits?    

Reduces shine and tightens pores, this a problem most of us have!

Very effective on clearing pores and it also gently exfoliates skin. So it addresses multiple common concerns which makes it a great choice especially if you haven't been so kind to your skin lately!

As always if you are unsure about which facial to get started with, then book a free consultation with one of our aestheticians and we can take a peek at your skin and put you in the right direction!
