Having a strong skin barrier is the best defence against sensitivities - but how exactly do you restore the barrier?

Here are my top four ways you can build up your surface layer.

1. Go back to basics.
Our four week detox does just that. No actives, just basic skin products that are going to support building up your skin barrier.

2. Avoid scrubs.
Cut right back on any facial exfoliation... from products to cleansing cloths... these are too harsh for your skin and will only cause more redness and irritation.

3. Supplement your diet.
Adding in some essential fatty acids (EFAs) can do wonders to building up your skin barrier. They are anti-inflammatory so will help calm your skin and soothe aggravating conditions from the inside out. EFA's also help prevent water loss that can lead to irritation and discomfort.

4. Wear sunscreen.
One of the easiest ways to protect your skins barrier is by wearing a daily SPF - our favourite is dermaviduals as its natural and only contains the best ingredients for your skin.

Do you ever wonder "how much product should I be using?"

Too much can sometimes be too much of a good thing and not enough could mean you are over lathering that moisturiser...

Save this post as a guide for your products:

Cleanser
1-2 pumps and use your dermaviduals essential cleansing cloth if you like.

Lotions and tonics
2-3 sprays or pumps. Pat into your skin.

Serums
2-3 drops - our custom blends are very generous!

Moisturiser
A generous pea size and a little more if you want to cover your neck and chest.

Sunscreen
The same as your moisturiser: a generous pea size and a little more if you want to cover your neck and chest.

Eye cream
A grain of rice-sized drop spread around both of your eyes.

Don't forget to save this post for the next time you apply your product!♡

Product love: Tenfione Semisomal Bath - Luxurious bath oil for sensitive and compromised skin.

Here are a few reasons why we LOVE this bath oil here at Adelaide Skin Therapy:
♡It nourishes and hydrates
♡ It's anti-inflammatory
♡ Because of it's high concentration of linoleic acid (omega 6)
♡ It supports the repair of skin barrier function

Tenfione Semisomal Bath contains natural oils including olive oil, avocado oil with the addition of vitamin E and urea to form its distinctive semisomal composition.

And how do we use it?
Add 10–20ml (a cap full) of Tenfione Semisomal Bath into warm bath water and gently stir until the water turns milky. Indulge in the lipid rich bath for up to 20 minutes.

We even wash our dog in it!🐶

Supporting the Skins Natural Exfoliation Process.

Are you someone who always reaches for the latest skin exfoliator to "scrub away our dead skin" in order to reduce breakouts and have an even skin tone...

Stop!

Every time you are pushing a barrier with your skin that doesn't need to be pushed you are forcing your new skin cells to mature at a faster rate because their barrier, the older skin cells you scrubbed away have just been stripped...

By the time these new skin cells reach the surface they look red, inflamed and dehydrated because they don't know how to do their job properly...

That's why, at Adelaide Skin Therapy we focus on corneotherapy - a customised skin care protocol that focuses on restoring the skin barrier function.

If you want to focus on building up your skin barrier and having your dream skin for good, chat to us so we can start you on your 4 week detox to perfect skin.

Why fats are the secret to healthy, glowing skin.

While not all fats are created equally, foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial for several health factors, including healthy skin. Omega-3s have strong anti-inflammatory properties, helping to suppress inflammatory responses related to everyday encounters like stress or poor diet.

So which foods contain healthy fats?
🥑 Avocados
🥑 Oily fish such as salmon
🥑 Nuts such as walnuts and almonds
🥑 Chia seeds
🥑 Coconut oil

Everyones skin is different. So we suggest seeing what works best for your skin.

A little love for our Dermaviduals Liposome Concentrate Plus - an absolute must for acne, blemish or pimple prone skin.

This product delivers phosphatidylcholine, Linoleic acid (omega 6) and naturally occurring Azelaic acid to the skin.

And what do these properties do?
♢ Phosphatidylcholine is a major component of the skins cells membranes.
♢ Linoleic acid is very helpful to acneic skin as an anti inflammatory. It also helps to liquefy sebum which prevents it from plugging up the pore and causing blemishes.
♢ Azelaic acid helps to reduce the growth of bacteria in the pores, reduce inflammation, and normalise the growth of skin cells within the folicle lining. It is also an effective agent for reducing hyperpigmentation.

All of these actions are massively helpful for acne-prone skin.

Liposome Concentrate Plus will also help to reduce the chances of blackheads & whiteheads forming. The liposomes are very in rich in anti-inflammatory EFA's which support the prevention of blemishes and inflamed skin and help to calm down those hard, red, cystic spots that tend to form around the jaw line.

It will also help to prevent scarring after blemishes and soften the appearance of existing scars so it is very helpful for skin that suffers with acne and will also help to reduce the inflammation that accompanies Rosacea.

This is your Friday reminder to continue wearing sunscreen every day (yes, even in winter!)

Winter is upon us, once again! And we are starting to see clients see us with dry, chapped and tight skin.. So we wanted to share with you 5 easy tips to have you feeling confident in your own skin this season!

1. Keep the H2O coming

As the temperature drops your skin will become increasingly drier and more susceptible to irritation, especially with heating. Ensure you drink plenty of water every day and try swapping the coffee (or that extra cup) with herbal teas or warm lemon water to keep hydrated from the inside out.

2. Turn down the heat

It is tempting to turn up the heat in the home or office, but your skin won’t be thanking you. This applies to long hot showers and baths also. As the heat increases, your blood vessels will dilate, which can lead to blotchy skin, uneven pigmentation, or dilated capillaries. To top things off the increased heat may damage collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis, leading to premature wrinkles.

3. Essential Fatty Acids, emphasis on ‘essential’!

Essential fatty acids are crucial for maintaining healthy skin. Topical creams containing EFA’s can penetrate your skin and provide the hydration it needs to prevent dry skin. However, this is temporary and why it is essential you are getting enough omega-3 fats in your diet, such as fish, eggs, flaxseed oil and supplementation. When combined your skin will be receiving EFAs both from the outside in and inside out, ensuring a happy, healthy complexion.

4. Sunscreen Please!… (Even on overcast days)

For many of us we associate mainly hot summer days with sunscreen application, but this is just not true. We should all be slip, slop, slapping every day! If exposed, the sun’s UV light can damage your skin’s barrier, which reduces ceramide levels leading to a loss of moisture and eventually dry skin. Ensure you apply the sunscreen every morning as a last step to your skincare routine.

5. Book in for an updated skin treatment. Make sure to book in for your winter consult so your skin is prepared for anything this winter tries to throw your way! Book now via the link in our bio x

Today Ruby takes us along with us as she gets her bespoke facial.

Firstly we get her to fill out her new patient forms so we can be aware of any conditions that may affect her treatments.

Then we have a chat about her problem areas and prescribe her 4 week detox treatments that are tailored to her skin type.

Lastly we finish off with a bespoke facial to have her skin feeling fresh and clean.

Reminder: Our skin cells are not dead so don't treat them as they are!

Contrary to popular belief, the outer layer of skin cells are not dead, they are actually a living structure and our first line of defence against harmful microbes.

Specialised immune cells within our skin tissue help to fight invading organisms. These cells also communicate to other cells in the dermis.

Skin Treatments that ablate (remove the skin cells like Dermabrasion, Derma-planing and Chemical Peels) should be done so with caution (or not at all!) and our cosmetics should help maintain the protective barrier of the skin, supplying essential nutrients to restore and protect the stratum corneum against negative environmental influences.

At Adelaide Skin Therapy we work on building up your cells instead of breaking them down. Interested in learning more? Click the link in our bio to book x
