Our health and lifestyle choices can strongly impact the appearance of our skin, and noticeable changes in our skin can indicate many things, such as the impact of our lifestyle on our health and general wellbeing. The factors can include stress, smoking and sun exposure, and over time can have a severe impact on the condition of your skin.

As a leading cosmetic skin clinic in the UK, here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic we understand your skin, and we can help you restore it back to its former glory.

Here we will show you what your skin is trying to tell you when you notice certain changes to your appearance, as well as what causes these changes and what you can do to turn back the clock and achieve truly beautiful skin.

Wrinkles

Signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging, dark spots and loss of skin luminescence are normal as we begin to age, however they can appear prematurely and more pronounced than is normal if you spend a lot of time in the sun or you are a smoker.

Spending a lot of time out in the sun, particularly without proper UV protection, is one of the leading causes of premature aging. UVA rays that occur in natural sunlight cause our skin to break down elastin and collagen, making skin feel thinner, more transparent and cause wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.

As well as altering your lifestyle to promote healthier looking skin, there are also several procedures that you can choose to have to help turn back the clock. These can range from non-invasive procedures such as botox and chemical peels to surgical procedures, such as face lifts, neck lifts and eyelid surgery.

Acne

Acne is a common skin condition, particularly throughout puberty. However, some people are more prone to acne than others, and the condition can be aggravated by eating inflammatory foods, a deficiency of certain nutrients and hormonal imbalances.

Acne can be a very difficult condition to have and can make you feel very self-conscious. If you pick at spots or fail to cleanse your face properly, this can also lead to scarring.

You can work to improve your acne by establishing a good skincare routine and trying to eat a healthy, balanced diet. There are also several effective treatments that you can use to combat your acne in the long term, such as Lustre Pure Light; a treatment that is 100% safe and works by killing bacteria found within the skin.

Fat Pads Under Eyes

Puffiness, dark circles and fat pads below the eyes are often caused by exhaustion, and over time these can become more permanent and prove very difficult to remedy.

Although there are short-term solutions to reduce puffiness under your eyes and attempt to cover up dark circles with makeup, however these treatments are often ineffective and fail to provide results in the long term.

One of the most effective treatments you can have to banish fat pads and other under-eye issues for good is lower eyelid surgery. This procedure is more delicate than upper eyelid surgery, but when carried out correctly, it can prove to be very effective.

As you can see, certain changes to our skin can highlight the affects of our lifestyle on our health. However, these changes don’t have to be permanent, and here at the Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we can help you to restore the health and beauty of your skin.

We offer a variety of treatments and procedures for a range of different skin conditions, and we are sure that we can offer you the right treatment to suit your needs. For more information or to arrange a consultation, contact us today on 01481 736699.
