It never ceases to amaze me how little time and effort we dedicate to our skin. Sure, most people do wash their faces thoroughly, and many will have a cleanse, tone and moisturise programme. But generally, that tends to be that. We spend a fortune on looking after our teeth, and do this with dentists that are experts in this field. Similarly, we also have very expensive treatments for our hair. If we have any problems with our eyes, we can see an optician, and purchase glasses and contact lenses that allow us to look fantastic and still solve our problem. But our skin – how often can we say we have given it real expert treatment?

Chemical Skin Peels
One of the most acclaimed services that the sk:n skin specialist team offers are chemical skin peels. A glycolic peel is the sort of treatment that you always see on programmes like ’10 Years Younger’ as they rejuvenate your appearance by removing the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Your face looks and feels fresher and younger as a result.
Glycolic skin peels are great for skin that has suffered from Acne in the past and has been left with scarring as a result of that teenage legacy. Similarly, this is a peel that is great for those who have worshiped the sun a little too much, leading to damage to the skin (let’s face it, nothing aids premature aging as much as the sun does.) The treatment is very soothing and also extremely quick. A glycolic peel is massaged into the skin in a similar way to a face mask. It is left on for just a minute and then is removed by cleansing. A course of six treatments is recommended, but even one can be a real boost to your skin appearance.
You can currently try a deep exfoliating skin peel treatment for just £25, and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, this might be a perfect excuse to give yourself (and your skin) a bit of a sk:n treat. Check out the sk:n blog to read more about this, and other treatments including hair removal, skin assessments and Cosmetiv interventions.
You only have one skin – why not give it a real boost?
