3 Treatments for Glowing Skin All Year Round
We've all heard the phrase "glowing skin is always in", and that's because it is! Everyone's after that subtle, 'can't quite put your finger on it', flawlesss glow that we often associate with summer. But thanks to in-clinic skin treatments, you can have it all year round. Let's take a look at three treatments in particular that make skin glow.
Profhilo is the ultimate skin treatment for glowing skin - giving a healthy appearance that will be the envy of everyone around you. So, what is Profhilo and how exactly does it make your skin glow so gorgeously? Well, it's a bioremodeller, developed in Italy, that uses highly concentrated, pure hyaluronic acid - HA (everyone's favourite skincare essential). The HA is injected into the skin in five points on each side of the face...and then the magic happens. The runny hyaluronic acid then disperses under then skin, improving its texture and quality.
Hyaluronic acid is incredible at holding onto water (like, up to 1,000 times its own weight in the stuff!), so it's a brilliant treatment for anyone whose skin is looking slightly dry or lacklustre. And the glow it gives is just...WOW!
Oh, and it's great at minimising signs of ageing, like fine lines and wrinkles and boosting collagen production for a more rejuvenated appearance. What can I say? It's amazing!
For best results, you'll probably want a couple of sessions, but if you want noticably glowy, hydrated looking skin, even after just one session, click here to find Profhilo pros in your area.
It's said that the Hydrafacial - a type of hydradermabrasion - is carried out every 15 seconds, worldwide. So, why is it such a popular treatment? Well, it's a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that gives incredible results, i.e. hydrated, clear-looking skin, even after just one treatment.
Great for a range of skin issues, such as hyperpigmentation, clogged pores, fine lines, dull skin and oily skin, the Hydrafacial is another fab - and personalised - way to get that summer glow you're after, in just five simple steps. First is detox - this is where the skin is provided with an intense water-based solution in order to boost blood flow and lymphatic drainage and to remove toxins.
Next comes the cleansing step, which is where your skin gets the cleanse of its life. Followed by the exfoliation stage, where chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid are applied to get rid of dead skin cells. Then, the extraction stage unclogs pores, allowing your skin to breathe a sigh of relief. Finally, comes the hydrating step, which is where a unique serum is applied, including antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid, to give your skin a huge glug of hydration.

3) Superficial Chemical Peel
I wish chemical peels had a different name, because they sound awful, but they're nowhere near as awful as the name would have you think. And, more to the point, the results they provide are out of this world. Want that summer glow? You've got it with a chemical peel.
What makes light skin peels so great? They're amazing for providing the chemical exfoliation that's needed to free the skin of dead skin cells, and replace dull skin with softer, smoother, more even looking skin.
Superficial chemical peels are also brilliant at reducing blemishes, pigmentation, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and acne scarring. Oh yes - it does all of that, while leaving your skin glowing!
You'll usually want a course of chemical peel treatments, depending on your skin concerns, but it's possible to see great results after just one session. To book yours, click here.
So, if you want to ditch the dull skin and replace it with gorgeous, flawless, glowing skin, take your pick from the three treatments above. And your skin will be as happy as your are with the results! Who says you can only glow in summer anyway?
