It’s normal to shed around 50 to 100 hairs a day, and for some people with dark, long hair it can be much more noticeable. Most people do not notice losing hair as we have around 100,000 hairs growing in our scalp. It’s when you start to notice that you are losing hair and balding occurs that you should take notice.
There are many conditions that can cause hair loss, some more severe than the others, but whatever the condition, hair loss can have huge effects on your self-esteem and confidence, which is why we provide hair transplants at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic.
Hair loss can be caused by the following medical or mental conditions and disorders:
- Alopecia areata – This is one of the main reasons for hair loss, it occurs when the immune system attacks the follicles of your hair. It causes round patches of hair loss.
- Thyroid – If the thyroid glands aren’t working correctly (to regulate hormone levels) hair loss can be the result.
- Anxiety & stress – this mental condition can lead to skin picking compulsions, which can cause hair loss. Stress can have many negative effects on the body, but hair loss isn’t always permanent.
- Scalp infections – ringworm can infect your scalp and lead to hair loss. Infections need to be treated, however once treated hair usually grows back.
- Trichotillomania – this is a hair pulling disorder; sufferers often have an uncontrollable urge to pull out their hair – this could be eyelashes, eyebrows, arm hair or hair from the scalp.
One of the main causes of hair loss is human hormones; the most common is probably male-pattern baldness which is hereditary. Thinning of the hair can even happen during puberty. Hormonal imbalances can be the cause of hair loss; it can be associated with pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and birth control medication.
Not all conditions lead to hair loss, however, if you do think you are suffering from one of the above conditions it is important that you see your G.P. Hair loss not only affects you physically but also emotionally and mentally. You don’t have to suffer with it though, as we provide quality hair transplants that will help you inside and out.

Summer is officially over, so of course, it’s time to switch up your skincare routine. We all know that the cold, frosty wind isn’t the best treatment for our skin; it can leave it dry, calloused and red raw. So, instead of suffering through it, equip yourself with the right weapons (well, knowledge and treatments!) to fight back and have flawless skin throughout this dastardly season. To help you, we’ve compiled a few autumn skin care tips so that you can look and feel beautiful!
Hydration for the Nation!
You may not think it, but it is just as important in autumn and winter as it is in summer to keep you and your skin hydrated. Doing this is simple… drinking water! H2O really is your best friend. It can keep your skin looking healthy as it helps to flush out toxins from the body.
Exfoliate With Care
When exfoliating, do so with care as the winter can dry out your skin leaving it flaky and sore. By exfoliating too hard or too much you can cause further damage to your skin, which isn’t pleasant! So choose gentle products designed for sensitive skin, rather than harsh chemicals!
Beware of the Sun
Although, it may not feel like it, the winter sun can still damage your skin. You don’t need to wear a high factor sunscreen every day, however it is advised that you do still protect your skin – there are many BB creams available which are complete with an added touch of sunscreen! Protecting your skin this way can prevent wrinkles and other signs of early aging.
Wash Your Gloves & Scarves
This is the season for wearing gloves, scarves and hats, and you usually do that every day. Despite this, people rarely wash these items of clothing. Your gloves pick up dirt throughout the day, not to mention the fact that your hands sweat – the same for your scarf, although it lies around your neck. Wash these items to keep them clean and prevent dirt from clogging your pores!
Keep your skin looking utterly stunning this season by following these important, yet simplistic autumn skin care tips! We’re sure you’ll feel much better inside and out. So don’t worry about the cold – simply beat it!
