Keep on top of your skincare throughout summer

The summer months can take a toll on your skin. The higher temperatures and humidity encourage the skin’s production of sebum, leading to increased oiliness, congestion and breakouts. This is why it is important to keep on top of your skincare throughout the summer months to keep your skin feeling fresh!

Before embarking on a skincare journey, we always advise our patients to come in for a skin consultation with one of our practitioners. This allows us to take a deeper look at the skin and discuss any skin concerns or goals you may have. At The Cosmetic Centre, we use the Visia Facial Imager to see under the surface of the skin and look at the deeper layers. This machine adds another dimension to our skin analysis, looking at pigmentation, redness, texture, bacteria, pore size and wrinkles on the skin. It also grades these skin features relative to others with the same age and skin type. This helps us customise a treatment plan for our patients and provide a skin care routine with recommended products that will benefit your specific skin concerns.

It is ideal to have a facial treatment monthly as the top layer of your skin takes approximately 28 days to fully turn over. Committing to regular treatments will allow superficial, dull skin cells to be replaced by new, fresh cells.

One of our favourite facials we offer is the AquaPure Facial. We tailor this treatment to meet your needs, giving you a bespoke facial treatment to combat your skin concerns. Combining a range of features, this treatment can keep your skin hydrated and nourished throughout the summer months. A light chemical peel will exfoliate the skin while removing impurities for a deep cleanse. To keep the skin looking bright and hydrated, a combination of hyaluronic acid and antioxidant ingredients are distributed into the skin. We also use a small current to push a hyaluronic acid serum deep into the skin to provide optimal hydration, with both leaving the skin with a brighter, healthy glow. The AquaPure facial can also be used to tighten the facial contours through the use of microcurrent. This setting will help to lift and tighten the skin of the neck, jaw and cheeks, while also stimulating new collagen and elastin. To finish the treatment, you will experience cooling energy to reduce fine lines and repair the skin, or heating energy to firm and tone.

Heliocare SPF50 gel


Throughout the summer months, your face is the number one area which is constantly exposed to the sun. If unprotected, this can cause lots of damage to the skin. Even if you have a consistent skincare routine filled with the right cleansers, moisturisers and serums, this could all be for nothing without an SPF50! Heliocare SPF50 gel is a slightly tinted, oil-free broad-spectrum sun protectant that should be used daily as the last step of your skincare routine.


So, to maintain that summer glow and keep your skin refreshed, this August we are offering our patients a skin assessment with the Visia Facial Imager, a Heliocare SPF50 gel, and either an express facial or microdermabrasion for £40, or an AquaPure facial for just £75!
