On a regular basis I hear this from my clients…
I want perfect skin!
I have large pores!
I want flawless skin!
I want to look younger!
I want to be wrinkle free!
So and so on social media has amazing skin!
My friend uses this and swears by it!
I want to be acne free!
I get asked daily , Can you help me get “perfect skin” or to look 10 years younger? or be acne free?
The honest answer is NO, but I can help you achieve healthier skin and improve how your skin behaves.
The reality is that no one has perfect skin. Healthy normal skin still has some imperfections.
Fillers and Botox won’t give you perfect skin! In fact they do not help with skin concerns. You still get spots & breakouts, your skin will still look dull and have some pigmentation and imperfections.
Social Media and Filters have a lot to answer for as do influencers, as they are not helping with realistic expectations about what normal skin is.
Remember most of the social media images have Filters on them. Real skin does not have a filter. Influencers are getting paid to sell to you!
So what is the answer?
To get the message out there, that real skin has some imperfections and PORES!!! Yes we all have them. It’s the science of the skin.
GET the correct advice from a skincare professional not your friend or an influencer who appears to have flawless skin, as they are not you. It may not be the product that accounts for the fact that they have no spots, lines or wrinkles but due to genetics. Each and every one of us is unique, so your skincare should be tailored to you, your skin concerns and needs.
Help yourselves by stop looking in a x5 or x10 magnifying mirror and saying I have large pores. We all have large pores if we look in magnifying mirror.
FACT - WE ALL HAVE PORES!
Your pores have a job to do in the skin, they help keep the skin supple, moisturised and healthy by allowing the release of sweat and sebum to leave the body. The reality is you can’t shrink pores, pore size is genetically determined and as we age appear larger due to the collagen in the skin starting to breakdown. However, we can help with products and treatments that minimise the appearance of pores by plumping the collagen surrounding the pores and by unblocking clogged pores (blackheads & build up of dead skin cells).
You can also help by protecting your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Sun damage will thicken the skin and cause the breakdown of collagen, elastin and water from your skin which can lead to larger looking pores.
With so many choices, so much noise about Skincare, Facials, Laser Treatments, Peels, Fillers, Botox, it’s hard to know what treatment or skincare is best for you. So where do you start?
Book for a skincare consultation or new treatment consultation with a skincare professional. You will get a expert advice tailored to you and your needs.
