5 Most Common Skin Concerns.

S.O.S !! Save Our Skin!!

Did you know that our skin is the largest organism of the human body? Our skin is actually the LAST port of exit for any sort of toxins or nasties that don’t get the chance to be removed through our internal organs and systems.

As we all flow through life with its ups and downs so does our skin, from premature ageing, all kinds of acne, large and small spots of pigmentation, rosacea and lots more.

But have no fear! Husk Beauty Bar is here!
We are the experts when it comes to the helping you with your skin battle, with each and every concern you may have, whether it BIG or small. So here are the most common skin concerns that we see and how to treat them and regain your confidence.

Fine lines & wrinkles
As we get older, everything in our body start to slow down including our collagen and elastin production which leads to ageing through fine lines and wrinkles.
Excessive amounts of unprotected sun exposure also aids in the premature ageing of our skin causing more fine lines and wrinkles.

To help improve the appearance of prematurely aging skin, we recommend the following treatments:
  • Microdermabrasion: A minimally invasive technique to rejuvenate your skin, using a method which mechanically exfoliates away dead skin cells and immediately removes them, leaving skin looking smoother and fresher.
  • LED Light Therapy: (Light Emitting Diode-Blue and Red light) is a non invasive treatment which sends a wavelength of energy into the lower depths of the skin to stimulate new collagen production, elastin and fibroblast. Resulting in a plumper, tighter and smoother appearance. (Also used to treat acne with blue light as it aids in killing P-acne bacteria and is antibacterial/anti inflammatory)
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment: using Intense Pulsed Light, skin is encouraged to rejuvenate, resulting in a smoother appearance.
  • Peels: Our ASAP non-invasive peels improve the appearance of fine lines and the tone of the skin.
  • Facials: We offer specialized facials which can focus on anti-aging helping to improve the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Microneedling: This treatment creates micro punctures in the skin, encouraging your skin’s natural healing process and stimulating collagen production.
TOP TIP: Prevention is better than cure when it comes to ageing skin, so always remember to wear SPF30/SPF50 on your face, neck and décolletage every day, even in the winter months because that sneaky sun still sends it’s UVA rays through our clouds hitting our skin.
Acne and spots
Acne and break out is not just a concern for a teenager but for many adults as we go through different stages in life. Hormonal changes are a big stimulator for break outs or acne, but there are all sorts of ways we can treat these concerns.

At Husk, we offer a ‘Gym For The Skin’ mini-peel facial which can be tailored to target Acne. LED blue and red light treatments stimulate wound healing, anti inflammatory responses, boosts collagen production and kills acne bacteria.
Speak to your beauty therapist about your acne prone skin and we can recommend and write you a prescription with the specific products and treatments tailored to you and your concerns.
If Acne scaring is your concern, treatments such as micro needling, microdermabrasion and peels can help.

TOP TIP: Whatever you do, don’t pick that pimple! Squeezing your spots introduces nasty bacteria into the wound and can lead to scarring and P.I.H (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation).

Darker areas or uneven skin colour are the result of skin pigmentation, and can include freckles, P.I.H (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation), melasma, sun spots and age spots. Pigment is produced in the dermal area of our skin and as we age and our natural cell turnover occurs our underlying pigmentation becomes more obvious in its appearance as it comes closers to the epidermal surface resulting in darker and darker spots, most often caused by exposure to the sun or an imbalance of hormones.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment can be used to target uneven skin pigmentation and leave the skin looking even and clear. Facial Peels and Microdermabrasion can also help. All of these treatments help skin to rejuvenate and stimulate its natural collagen production.

TOP TIP: Once again, sun exposure is definitely not your friend when it comes to uneven skin pigmentation, so be vigilant with that sunscreen and wear a hat when you’re out and about.

Did you know 1 in 10 people are affected by Rosacea? It’s an inflammatory skin condition which causes the skin to appear red and sore and sometimes leaving the skin with acne or under the skin blind pimples. It usually appears on the cheeks and can be triggered by stress and environmental factors. Fairer skin types are more at risk of Rosacea.

Establishing a good skincare routine is key - this can help inhibit your skin’s oil production and reduce inflammation.

TOP TIP: Be aware of the factors that can lead to rosacea flare-ups, such as drinking alcohol and sun exposure.

Sensitive skin
If you’ve got sensitive skin you might be a little worried about treatments and how they’ll affect your skin. Have no fear we are the sensitive skin experts and be assured there are products and treatments that can help you and your delicate skin. LED Facials can be fantastic for sensitive skin and aid in the repair, strengthening and barrier function which in turn reduces flushing, reactiveness and general health of the skin. The right type of home care products are essential in helping with sensitive skin or any type of skin for that matter!

TOP TIP: When it comes to sensitive skin, fragrance-free is always best and remember to drink two litres of water per day, to keep your skin hydrated and support its natural defences.

Once a good skincare routine is in place, a good treatment program is vital in the aid of any skin issues.
