You probably use skin care products. Perhaps you buy a new moisturiser every 2 to 3 months. Perhaps you've used the same moisturiser for a long time.
How well is it working for you? Is it dealing with your skincare problems? Do you see any improvement in your skin?
Don't you think you should?
Here's the secret: It's all about skincare product ingredients at A Touch of Spa beauty Salon in Woking.
The key to choosing your skin care products is all about matching the skincare product ingredients to what your skin needs to help resolve the underlying issues that are causing your skincare problems to appear.
Your skincare problem is just the symptom.
The real issue is why you're having that skincare problem in the first place. What has gone wrong with your skin to cause the skincare problem you are seeing in the mirror?
To understand that, it is best to get a science-based skin analysis. It is so confusing finding the right skincare products for your skin.
There are literally thousands of products to choose form, and hundreds that promise to resolve whatever skincare problem you are experiencing.
You've probably tried more than a few, and probably been disappointed by several.
Skincare products can help you deal with skincare problems including those caused by the change of life and ageing.
As you get older, your skin increasingly needs extra support. Your skincare products are one avenue you can use to provide this support.
Your skin is an organ, and like your other organs, it performs less well as you get older. However, unlike your other organs your skin is always exposed to the environment, and that can create additional pressure.
Skincare products can help you to:
All these are important needs. Needs your skin has every day.
Some people have stuck with soap and water since childhood. However, as you get older, the ingredients in soap can dry out your skin even further, and dry skin can be a big culprit behind facial lines and wrinkles.
Although Dr Susan only buys products that will work on different skincare issues, the next step is to choose from these those products that will work for YOU. Not all of them will.
If you're going to spend money on products, then they really need to work hard for you.
Before Dr Susan will recommend products, she prefers to first do a skin analysis.
This is because even the skincare products she recommends is personalised for you, and aim to treat the reasons behind your skincare problems.
At A Touch of Spa Beauty Salon we expect the products that Dr Susan recommends to:
Of course, that improvement is enhanced if you also come in for a treatment.
Popular skincare products may not be right for you
Did you know that the majority of money spent on many skincare products is on marketing?
There can be a big difference between marketing perception and reality.
Perhaps you've been swayed by the advertising. The promises on the pretty box.
Buying the product that seems to be the most popular because it is everywhere you look - on social media, in the shops. Even the influencers and celebrities are using it, and raving about it. How well ahs that worked for you?
Science, on the other hand, deals with hard facts. Product ingredients do specific things. And that doesn't change, regardless of the packaging and the marketing.
When you have a treatment and then choose to buy skincare products here, Dr Susan creates a bespoke improvement plan for your skin. That plan aims to take you from where you are, to the skin you want to have.
That's your skincare journey.
Dr Susan explains what the focus is each time, based on your skin analysis. The aim is to move you forward to the next step in your skincare journey.
Clients are often surprised that:
· the products they buy from us come from a range of different lines.
· the discussion that Dr Susan has with them about these products are rooted
Your skin's needs are constantly changing. As it changes - perhaps with the seasons or as you get older, the ingredients in your products should also change to better support your skin.
It's hard to believe that a product line, mass produced for literally millions of women, will be the best skincare product line for you. Is your skin exactly the same as millions of other women?
A Touch of Spa Beauty Salon is all about delivering a personalised service for you.
We do not sell any particular skincare line.
Instead, Dr Susan spends hours on the internet finding products that have the right ingredients to work on specific skincare issues, and which are affordable and represent value for money.
Instead of going with a particular skincare line, she prefers to buy products that science tells her will work, regardless of the extra effort this approach takes.
There are literally thousands of skincare products available for you to buy, and hundreds that promise to resolve whatever skincare problem you are experiencing.
It is so confusing finding the right skincare products for your skin. It's hard to choose. You've probably tried more than a few, and probably been disappointed by several.
Dr Susan matches your skincare issues to product ingredients, and then finds the product with these ingredients.
She spends hours researching products, so you can know that when she recommends a product, it's the best product for you. The one that can deal with your specific skincare issues.
Well, let's say that your skincare journey starts at 0 (where you are at your first treatment) and ends at 10 (where you would ideally like to end up). Your first skin care treatment may move your skin from the 0 point to say a 2 on this scale, where you see and/or feel some improvement.
But at home, you continue to use the same products you had before, with the same skin care routine. If these had contributed to your skin issues, or if these do not have the right ingredients for your skin, then it is likely that you will struggle to maintain the improvement from your skin treatment, and unfortunately, your skin is likely to quickly revert to position 0.
Absolutely. However, there is a charge of £10 per product to do so.
That depends on your facial skin analysis, the improvements you want to see, how quickly you would like to progress, as well as the amount of time you are willing to spend on your skin care routine.
A Touch of Spa is not linked to any particular brand of skincare products.
We do not make or manufacture any products.
It really is all about the science and the ingredients. However, Dr Susan tries to choose products with natural ingredients where possible.
Products are researched and stocked based primarily on their ingredients. There is a wide range of prices, and Dr Susan tries to find something to suit your budget.
Dr Susan has tried to recommend ingredients for clients to look for when they buy products.
But the ingredients can be technical and there can be costly mistakes when clients buy the wrong product.
So A Touch of Spa now buys a small number of good quality products from a diverse range of brands, for resale to you.
You will first need to have a facial skin analysis done.
There is a charge of £15 per product to recommend products to you. This covers some of the cost of researching the product.
Recommendations are limited to products available in the UK.
A Touch of Spa's prices are often the same as you would get online.
Sometimes there is a small markup to reflect the extra research needed on particular products.
For most people your skin care products and skin care routine should change with the seasons, and critically, also meet the changing needs of your unique skin.
Dr Susan can check your skin's needs, and you can get products with the right ingredients every time, at a price that suits your budget.
To decide on the best products for you, Dr Susan must first examine your skin.
You will first need to have a facial skin analysis before Dr Susan will recommend any products for you.
Not usually. Sometimes the skincare products used in the skincare treatments are not suitable for daily use.
Sometimes these special skincare products give you the boost you need, but then there needs to be a period of maintenance.
Often the skincare products and techniques used in the Skin care treatments work together to give you the result you see - not something that can be replicated at home.
However, Dr Susan can suggest the best skincare products and skin care routine for home use that will help you to maintain the improvement.
Yes. While Dr Susan's skin care treatments can move you forward on your skincare journey, it is down to you to maintain the improvement between skincare treatments.
