Caring for your skin - Where it all begins

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, yet for most of us, unless we have diseases affecting our skin, such as eczema (atopic dermatitis), or worse, we simply take this amazing organ for granted, and all the ways in which it protects us every single day over years of our lives. 

Regardless of whether we care for this organ, it protects us from chemicals we come into contact with, it acts to hold organs inside and give us a boundary between what we understand to be “me” and the outside world.

Often the first time we think of our skin, is as children, when we wear sunscreen to go to the beach, or at school prior to playing outdoors.

For many of us, that is about the extent of our skincare regimen, especially if we are Caucasian, until decades later. If Asian, where beautiful and fair skinned people are highly regarded, girls grow up with strict admonitions against freckles, sunburn and protecting skin at all times.

So when people comment on my skin, I can honestly say that most of it is due to genetics, diligent sun protection and a basic but effective skincare regimen that fits in with my lifestyle as a busy mum of 4.

Well before I discuss injectables with a potential patient, I’m looking at, and assessing your skin quality, its hydration, its sun damage, if any. I’m looking for other signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sag, and other common and preventable conditions such as acne and more.

That’s a big part of why I began Skin Essentials. The skin market is so huge, with so many people clamouring to get a foothold, it’s truly bewildering to know where to begin, much less who to trust. 

While I love my other jobs as a GP and educator, Skin Essentials is intended to be a clinic where I indulge my passion for all things skin to help my patients achieve personalised goals to their best skin ever discreetly.

What do we offer and how does it all work?

Well, we offer everything from:

  • basic skincare regimens personalised to you and your unique skin concerns, from teenage years through to your 60s and beyond. 
  • Treatments that complement your skincare and help prevent (further) damage - acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, ageing and more by way of a treatment plan, duration and number of treatments, all packaged for you.
  • Injectables such as anti wrinkle treatment, dermal fillers to reverse wrinkles and sag
  • Thread lifts, especially for those who may not intend to go down the facelift path.

So when is it a good time to care for this amazing organ we all have? 

The best time is to begin before you think you’ve any problems, ie now, because without maintenance all skins suffer.

There is no better time to begin your skincare plan than in winter, when the sun isn’t as harsh to undo some of the sun damage, especially since skin usually takes 3-6 months to respond.
