For starters, great results can be achieved with big-hitting topical ingredients including vitamin C, niacinamide, retinol, azelaic acid and hyaluronic acid.
However, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution and you could well benefit from a bespoke approach – it’s best to speak to a qualified skin specialist for advice.
If you prefer to deploy the big guns, targeted in clinic options could include microdermabrasion, a light peel, a touch of LED light therapy, microneedling or some skin resurfacing. HydraFacials are also effective as they combine more than one protocol and can be customised to suit your specific skincare needs.
While all of the above are certified glow-getters, just one product or aesthetic treatment may not give a truly wow outcome. Consider a multi-pronged approach when formulating a plan or regime – a practitioners’ advice along with a combination of topical products and procedures will achieve the best results.
We reveal four skin rejuvenators to have on your radar…
Dermalux Tri-Wave LED PhototherapyRated by aesthetic nurse and EV Expert Anna Baker who loves the diversity of conditions that can benefit from the device, this facial treatment uses non-thermal LED light energy to trigger the body’s natural processes and accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s ideal for those with lines, wrinkles, acne or dehydrated skin, and a course offers cumulative benefits – Baker suggests two treatments a week for four weeks, followed by one treatment per week for four weeks.
ZO Skin Health 10% Vitamin C Self ActivatingThis superior medical grade product delivers a potent 10 per cent dose of vitamin C to help remove surface discolouration, brighten and promote a more even skin tone. In addition, powerful antioxidants including tocopheryl acetate and coenzyme-Q10 help defend skin against environmental triggers, while squalene provides a hit of hydration. Another bonus is that it has an anhydrous pH, meaning there’s no water in the formulation – a win-win for both the user and the planet.
ProfhiloProfhilo is becoming as iconic as Botulinum toxin (Botox), although this skin booster doesn’t help to smooth out lines, it’s used to give a fresher, plumper and more firmer look to the skin. And what’s not to like about that? A series of tiny injections are placed in strategic areas of the face – and neck if you want – and you’ll require two appointments spaced two weeks apart. EV Expert Dr Raquel Amado rates it for its youth-boosting properties and ability to naturally regenerate the skin.
ZO BB HydraFacial Brightalive Booster SerumThe ever popular HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate, leaving skin fresh and healthy. To amp up the treatment’s already effective results, the brand’s super serums are made with nourishing ingredients that help create an instantly gratifying glow. Powered by ZO Skin Health, HydraFacial Brightalive Booster Serum is specifically designed to brighten skin and lessen the appearance of discolouration.
