The Cornerstones of Great Skin Care

1. Physical sunscreen

By far your most important anti-ageing product! Apart from the obvious reduction in skin cancer risk, sunscreen prevents premature skin-ageing, blotchy discolouration of the face, and the development of broken veins. Physical sunscreens containing Zinc or Titanium are best – they fully block UVA which comes through windows, causes ageing and pigmentation and are much better for those with rosacea or sensitive skin where chemical sunblocks can cause flares or irritation.
 

Our favourite sunscreens are Revision® Intellishade TruphysicalRevision® Intellishade Matte, Elta MD® UV Clear and Elta MD® UV Replenish.

2. Balancing of pH and normalising skin function 

We use the Biologique Recherche P50 exfoliating lotions to purify, smooth and moisturise the skin while rebalancing the pH of the epidermis. This epidermal reconditioning method allows increased penetration and enhanced action of products applied after its use.


3. Retinoids
Retinol and retinoic acid (tretinoin) are derivatives of vitamin A, and deliver a powerful anti-ageing punch. These agents address so many of our skin concerns – fine lines, discolouration, enlarged pores, blackheads, acne, and even has a mild protective action against skin cancer changes. It is the most effective topical therapy to reduce the signs of ageing and to produce a glowing complexion by increasing collagen and normalising skin cell turnover. 

 

We have differing grades of Retinol available for different skin types - Revision Retinol Complete (1.0%) and Revision D-E-J Night Cream (0.25%)

Read Professor Ryan's advice on the use of Retinol in the Sunday Business Post.

4. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential factor in the production of skin collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate and transform the skin, even out skin tone, improve hydration and keep the skin looking younger and more radiant.

Our favourite is Revision Vitamin C 30% Serum.

5. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found in abundance in the skin but declines with advancing age. It is a powerful moisture binding agent, enhancing skin hydration to produce plumper smoother skin, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also has anti-oxidant properties to reduce UV-mediated skin damage. It is a product that benefits everyone, including those with oily or dry skin.

Our favourites are Revision Hydrating Serum and the Biologique Recherche VIPO2 line.


6. Moisturisers, Serums and Masks containing growth factors, anti-oxidants and peptides

Serums, creams and masks containing growth factors , anti-oxidants and peptides have been shown to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin while reducing inflammation to produce improved skin tone and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Antioxidants help neutralise free radicals within the skin which are triggered by exposure to the sun, smoking, stress, pollution, and other damaging environmental factors. ​
We offer a wide selection of moisturisers, serums and masks perfect for all skin types and every skin concern. Whether you suffer from acne or rosacea, we will help you select an individualised moisturising regime that optimally suits your skin type. In particular we use moisturisers rich in anti-ageing peptides, hyaluronic acid, anti-pollutants and antioxidants to produce glowing, youthful and healthy skin. 

We also have specific products designed to treat and hydrate the delicate thin skin around our eyes, mouth and neck.
