Skin care has come a long way from Cleopatra’s milk baths. Now, intensive research and modern day technology gives us more options for treatment, targeting specific problem areas and providing corresponding solutions.
With the primary focus on anti-ageing, we explore the main benefits we seek to give our skin that rejuvenating boost for a younger, healthier appearance – without having to go under the knife.
Seaweed masks or other topical treatments made by natural ingredients help clear the pores to make them appear smaller. Mild formulations of retinoic or glycolic acid can also be applied regularly to help unclog the pores of oil and dead skin cells.
Exfoliating scrubs and peels strip the skin of dull, dead cells for healthier, smoother complexion. Made of oats, vitamins and other natural ingredients, they target dark spots and other blemishes to reveal a flawless glow.
Various facials promote anti-ageing benefits that form and tighten the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Non-invasive , painless laser treatments can also be used to increase the skin’s collagen and elastin production for a younger-looking complexion.
Facials are good for restoring or balancing the skin’s moisture. Natural ingredients such as honey, almond and seaweed cleanse and repair damage cells and work well with dehydrated, sensitive skin.
Skin clinic offer intensive whitening treatments that target dark spots to give the skin an even tone. Peels can also be used to exfoliate the skin to help lighten discolorations caused by acne scars and age spots. Enhancing the skin tone gives the skin a youthful, healthy radiance.
Natural collagen treatments combined with ginseng help slow down the skin’s ageing process and strengthen its immune system in order to restore damaged cells and protect them from harmful free radicals found in the air.
Chemical peels or other types of peels work well to tighten and tone the skin, improving its texture and giving it a natural lift for a more youthful appearance. Facial muscle toning treatments also firm up the skin, easily removing years off your skin.
Skin clinics and spas can recommend which treatments would be best to address your specific needs. They may not be as extreme or expensive as surgical procedure, but be prepared to spend at least P500 – P3,000 for each treatment and schedule a couple of hours from your day to get it done.
