We all know that we should wear sunscreen, but sometimes the choice of products seems utterly bamboozling, and the prices vary hugely. Sunscreen should really be a part of every skin care regime and selecting one with a broad spectrum that protects against UVA and UVB is crucial. The ingredients are controlled by the FDA in order to maintain high standards and act effectively. They do this by protecting against premature ageing, reducing the risk of skin cancer, decreasing inflammation and providing a non-irritating physical, chemical and biological barrier against ambient UV light.
Other important characteristics may be water resistance and the degree of sun protection offered (SPF), normally over 25 is adequate with regular re-application. If the sunscreen binds to the skin effectively, it can also act to repair any existing damage, thus increasing the degree of protection. Natural botanical ingredients can help to produce a smooth, shear coverage without the unpleasant sunscreen odour and white/oily appearance that can be associated with some of the thicker, greasy formulations.
It is best to apply sunscreen around 30 minutes before exposure, and always staggered with other products/make-up to allow it to bind successfully to the skin. If you feel that your sunscreen in addition to your other skin regime products are too ‘heavy’ when all applied during the day, use your non-sun protecting products at night, this has the added benefit of allowing them longer to act in the absence of make-up.

During our late thirties and early forties many of us start to notice subtle changes to our skin. These can include; an increase in fine lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation (age spots), dry patches on the skin, loss of elasticity, crow’s feet around the eyes and general dullness. Damage accumulates from years of sun exposure, hormone fluctuations, weight changes, poor skincare routines and diet/exercise regimes.
Key target strategies to improve the skin include; reducing inflammation, strengthening the skin barrier, encouraging cell turnover for improved clarity and texture. Some excellent preventative methods can also be employed to hinder future ageing and clear pores of dead skin cells and other impurities.
Your skin specialist will be able to suggest specific products for your own particular needs i.e. retinol to reduce expression lines, formulated serum for a natural eye-lift, a barrier shield with sun protection to improve pigmentation.
A combination of a range of specific botanical (natural vegetable and/or plant derived) products are also very popular as they tend to be suitable for a wide range of skin types and give prolonged results with less risk of recurrence.

Skin Deep – April 2016

*Perfectify Your Pout*
Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at our ‘Top Treatments for Lips’. 
Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp – www.cheshireskinclinic.com angie@cheshireskinclinic.com or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594.

The delicate skin on the lips can actually reveal someone’s natural age earlier than other areas. Even unwanted skin anomalies such as pigmentation and fine lines can become accentuated around the mouth area, as it is somewhere that we naturally focus on during conversation. A range of anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and barrier repair technology developed products can fortify the lip area. They do this by providing natural (botanical) assistive lipids derived from apples, dates, avocado and peppermint. These hydrate the area, assist with collagen, elastin, firmness and skin repair. This, in turn, decreases the natural ‘thinning’ of the skin on the lips, which can be particularly noticeable in women due to the higher percentage decrease in collagen production with age. 
The lips also have less of the natural oils and lipids than the rest of the body, meaning that they are more susceptible to the evaporation of moisture. This leads directly to dryness, cracking and wrinkling. By applying lip balm continuously (to try and counter this) throughout the day can also pose problems as it can attract a build-up of bacteria and limits the natural turnover of dead skin cells. The additional benefit of soft-focus technology helps to diffuse the light, so that visible lines become less noticeable immediately. As ever, the best course of action is to speak to your skin specialist, who will be able to recommend a product that best fits your areas of concern, lifestyle and budget.
