While we are not able to visit our favourite Cosmetic and Skin clinics during this uncertain time, there are still plenty of things we can do to keep our skin glowing and to feel rejuvenated. Advanced Skin Technology’s team of educators share their best tips on how to give yourself some self-love for radiant, healthy-looking skin.
Can’t get in for your regular peel appointment? There are hundreds of Skin Clinics who have adapted to the current climate and are now operating online and offering virtual and phone consultations. We recommend you contact your nearest clinic for a consultation so that they can uncover your main concerns and provide a skin care regime specific to your skin type, concerns and your lifestyle.
If you are on the hunt for an at-home peel, look no further than Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask. A cult favourite, this at-home exfoliating mask is suitable for all skin types and contains an invigorating blend of Enzymes, Coffee Extract and Vitamins A, B and C that smooth, hydrate and illuminate the skin. If you prefer something quick and easy, the SkinBetter Science Alpharet Exfoliating Peel Pads containing a blend of Lactic, Glycolic and Salicylic Acid are your best bet.
Many of us are no longer commuting into the office which means we have a little more time for self-care. Splurging on some luxurious masks for some at home ‘multi-masking’ is a great way to treat yourself to a home facial. Sheet masks are the key to radiant skin and can be followed by an additional cream-based mask to lock in moisture for the ultimate glow. Top picks to complete the ultimate multi-mask DIY facial include Societe Rejuvenating Peptide Gel Mask, Cosmedix Micro Defense Microbiome Sheet Mask, Aspect Probiotic Mask and Aspect Hydrating Mask.

On the topic of self-care, now is the perfect time to start a daily self-massage practice such as the Ayurveda ritual Abhyanga. Traditionally this massage is performed with a base oil of Sesame or Coconut and is infused with herbs that target specific conditions. If you prefer to keep things simple, massage your preferred body moisturiser into the skin more mindfully, using long, sweeping strokes to achieve a similar level of zen. For those who experience dry and dehydrated skin on the body, your skin will love PCA Skin Body Therapy, a silky smooth body moisturiser that contains Lactic Acid to smooth and hydrate the skin.
One of the most important things we can do for our vitality, skin and wellbeing is to hydrate. Keep your favourite water bottle close by at all times and aim to drink 2-3 litres of water per day, add citrus, cucumber or mint to keep things interesting during the day and cleansing lemon with hot water to warm you up on cool mornings. To ensure your skin is plump and hydrated, an important inclusion in your regime is a dedicated serum containing the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful humectant that helps to bind moisture to the skin. Both Aspect Hydrating Serum and PCA Hyaluronic Boosting Serum will submerge your skin with a deluge of hydrating, skin-loving ingredients.
