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.

Skin Deep – June 2016
South Warrington News

Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at our ‘Fabulous Forties’.
Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp – www.cheshireskinclinic.com angie@cheshireskinclinic.com or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594.

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.

A little knowledge can give us phenomenal power when it comes to our bodies and looking our absolute best. Stretch marks can really affect some people’s confidence, but they can be improved, and in some cases become invisible, by reversing the atrophy (weakened, ‘shrivelled’ skin), repairing damaged/depleted collagen and calm the associated inflammation.
During the summer months we can also suffer from flare-ups of body acne, open pores, keratosis pilaris (red ‘bumps’ normally at the tops of the arms and/or legs and buttocks).
Products that contain ceramides, plant and fruit extracts, can all assist skin repair, whilst simultaneously giving anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits. These give the appearance and feel of increased firmness by stimulating collagen and elastin, plus reduce excess pigment that can age the face, hands and decollate.
Remember that skin is the body’s largest organ and the concentration of oil glands and follicles vary dramatically from the face, to the torso and the limbs.
Ask your skin specialist to recommend a product containing the correct essential oils with the appropriate antimicrobial, antifungal and hydrating properties for the area(s) that concern you. Some of them can even assist with conditions such as eczema, psoriasis. Many of these are ideally applied at night, and by the morning you will notice an improvement, what an ideal way to start the day!
