Lifeless, dull, and stressed complexions are almost a given after what has been, quite frankly, a sh*t show of a year. But as we near the finish line, we think a fast-tracked summer glow is the exact pick-me-up we all deserve.
So if your skin is wearing your stress like a giant look-at-me-I’m-exhausted sign, it’s time to turn it around. Here are three glow-giving treatments that will help you get there…
For a complete overhaul of a dull and dehydrated complexion, this painless exfoliating treatment works like a gentle vacuum to remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells. Stimulating collagen (link) production as a result, expect to be left with a luminous, soft and healthy face.
Also recommended for people with congestion and mild acne, the non-invasive treatment will help to unclog pores, eliminating trapped bacteria and oil for clearer skin and with it, more confidence to go makeup-free this summer.
Don’t let a travel ban stop you from attaining vacation skin. LED treatments–otherwise known as ‘the holiday glow treatment’–use non-invasive LED light therapy to deeply penetrate into the cells, helping to stimulate accelerated healing, which in turn works to fight active acne and rosacea.
The result? Rejuvenated skin, improved pigmentation and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime.
If you’re looking to try this out, Laser Clinics Australia offers a blue and yellow light treatments while Endota Spa offers a “New Age Light Therapy”. Or, if you’d prefer to stay within the comfort of your four walls, there are a few at-home variations we recommend: FOREO UFO 2, Dr. Dennis Gross Spectralite Faceware Pro ($696, Mecca)
If your skin is doing everything but behaving, a couple of Kleresca sessions might be the missing piece of the acne and flawed complexion puzzle.
Using a light conversion system, this treatment is designed to kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce any remaining scarring.
Working to stimulate the skin’s repair mechanisms, Kleresca treated skin has the ability to produce up to a 400 per cent increase in collagen production.
In a perfect world, a daily dip in the ocean would be our one-way ticket to improved skin quality, smaller pores, and eliminating fine lines, but for the next best thing, we recommend a Kleresca treatment; available at Laser Clinics Australia.
