As the summer days are long behind us and autumn is in full swing it is important to prepare our skin for the seasonal changes. A decline in temperature and humidity with increase in central heating can all take a toll on our skin, this can be especially challenging for people who are naturally prone to dry, dehydrated skin or suffer skin conditions such as Rosacea. As skincare professionals we are here to help and advise on how to refine skin texture, restore skin health and get you skin that will be the envy of all. Staffordshire Skin and Laser Clinic have put together this step by step guide of how to ensure that the only thing changing this autumn is the colour of the leaves.
So, what is the best vitamin supplement for your skin during autumn?
The skin is the last place to receive nutrition from our food, so although a healthy diet with lots of water will go a long way introducing supplements in the form of skin omegas, antioxidants and vitamin A can enhance the skin for optimal health benefits. We would always advise supplementing from the Advanced Nutritional Programme as there evidenced based supplements contain the highest quality nutrients and are specifically designed for optimal skin health.
Vitamin A is crucial within the skins cell renewal process. Skin cannot be normalised without Vitamin A. Vitamin A has an effect on the skin cells DNA and is required to help build healthy skin cells and stimulate there turnover – keeping our skin fresh and naturally exfoliated. This wonder vitamin also strengthens the stratum cornum (outer skin) making it function more effectively whist also stimulating collagen and reduces pigment production. Shockingly statistics show that over 95% of women are Vitamin A deficient – Don’t be one of them – start supplementing today for as little as 33p!
Skin Antioxidant are the ultimate skin protection and keep your skin looking younger for longer. Skin antioxidant contain seven super phytonutrients found in plants. Just like plants need antioxidants to protect the form over exposure of light and so does our skin to protect it from the damaging effects of free radical production. This is a great supplement for anyone concerned about the long-term damaging effects of UVA and UVB on the skin. An essential all year-round supplement.

What is the best facial for long term skin health during the cooler months?
We have the answer…. And just in time for national skin health month this November. Here at Staffordshire skin & laser we are launching the award-winning treatment HydraFacial. Loved by many famous faces across the world and it isn’t trending amongst the Hollywood elite for no reason. This medical grade machine uses unique technologies creating the best skin for life. Providing instant long-lasing results, but the great news is there is no down time. It addresses concerns such as dehydration, fine lines, pigmentation and acne. But is also great for those who have overcome skin concerns and looking to maintain their skin health.
So why is it a must for Autumn? A change in temperatures indoors and out causes dehydration which can play havoc on our skin, as a result our skin is likely to look dull to say the least. The cooler months can also play a part in our skin becoming more sluggish and this is where we can step in. Hydrafacial is a six-step process which combines a deep cleanse, exfoliation, peel, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection to the deepest layers of the skin. Providing instant hydration saturation, helping to boosting cell renewal and improving skin health. Giving your skin the best defence against the changing weather.
Why do I still need to think about sun protection during the autumn months?
Although the sky has been replaced with clouds rather than glorious sunshine, it’s essential that we still protect our skin with SPF. It is quite normal to think that we only need to protect our skin during the summer months – however the damaging effects of UVA, Infrared-A, and visible light radiation are present 360 days of the year! These damaging rays are also able to penetrate through clouds and glass causing millions of harmful free radicals deep into the skin leading to damaged skin and premature ageing. Hence Heliocare 360 is a must 360 days of the year! Heliocare goes one step further to protecting your skin with its supercharged Fernblock FC. This potent antioxidant will help to neutralise free radical damage giving your skin added protection.
