Is your skin wedding ready? We chatted to NuYu Clinic about what they can offer you to prepare your skin for your wedding day!
Your wedding is advertised as the happiest day of your life, but usually what precedes it can be one of the most stressful times of your life and this can wreak havoc on your skin. Your skin can be one of the biggest indicators that something isn’t right; from those hormonal breakouts, to stress, poor diet or too many beers/wines at the weekend leaving your skin grey, sallow and dehydrated. And it does not differentiate – both men and women, young and the more mature can suffer with skin concerns and want the same outcomes – to look and feel the best they can be.
Did you know, your skin is the biggest organ of your body? Yet doesn’t receive the same recognition or awareness of the necessity to look after it. In general life, and especially in the run up to your wedding, we all invest time, effort and money into our hair, clothing, fitness, even dance lessons, in anticipation of the big day! But one crucial thing that is overlooked is our skin. It is so important to invest in your skin, as it is going to represent you for a long time, and it should certainly represent you on your wedding day.
Your wedding day will be one of the most photographed days of your life, and although photo albums are becoming a thing of the past, it will still be that album that you pull out in years to come, so it’s essential that your skin works with you not against you and reflects those truly magical moments, it should shine (in the good way) just like your day does. Healthy skin is crucial to enhance your natural beauty and is a perfect canvas for your makeup!
The aesthetics and skin health industry is booming, and quite rightly so, but it can be an absolute minefield and you can often feel that people are just pushing you down the route of what they offer, not necessarily what’s right for you. This is why it’s important that your practitioner, for whichever clinic you choose, has a good knowledge of both skin and facial anatomy, understands the science behind why your skin is behaving like it does and offers you corrective not just cosmetic skincare.
Team NUYU only work with brands that we believe in, that we use ourselves and that we know, most importantly will deliver what our clients want and need. We are pleased to be AlumierMD representatives, a luxury medical grade, results orientated skincare brand that delivers a range of both professional and prescription only home use products that provides real clinical outcomes for clients. Each product has actual therapeutic doses of products to target your skins structure and function, this is what makes it so different! Most skincare/cosmeceuticals will not affect the skins structure or function therefore it never really helps your malfunctioning skin reach its optimum level of healthy functioning.
Many people suffer with various skin conditions, such as acne, dryness, oily, sensitive, rosacea and hyperpigmentation and many people will fall into various categories regarding this – those that have tried everything at vast expense with no real results and have given up or those that think they are stuck with whatever their complaint is and have lost all hope before even beginning. We truly believe and know that all hope is not lost – you just need to speak to the right professional!
Anti-ageing is a strange term as it is stigmatised as something we are not allowed to do. Ageing is a natural and inevitable process so should be something to embrace, but there are things that you can do to age well.
With targeted treatments to keep your skin working at its optimum, we can aide cell turnover so our collagen and elastin - the building blocks of our youthful skin - continues to work hard for us to maintain suppleness, reduce lines and wrinkles forming and prevent muscle and fat pad wastage that changes the structure of our face. Glowing, healthy and plump skin doesn’t have to be just for the young.
Taking care of yourself, taking care of your skin, isn’t just for women. It’s for men too; even those stereotypical alpha males take pride in their appearance and should consider the benefits of some skin therapy. Sweat, facial hair and pollution contribute to the skin having to work hard to protect and defend. Doesn’t it make sense that the skin needs protecting and defending too.
We advocate having a professional consultation to help you find the right products, alongside the right professional treatment. We can help create individualised packages such as the ever popular dermaplaning or microdermabrasion, or deeper therapies such as microneedling, medical masks, chemical peels. Even injectable treatments such as toxins and dermal fillers have their place when administered by a fully-qualified medical practitioner. They are all effective in doing what they are aimed for, as stand-alone treatments and can produce outstanding and significant results when booked as a course or as part of a bespoke package. But, what is most important is that any of these methods should help you to look like a better version of yourself.
You shouldn’t walk into that clinic looking like you and leave looking like everyone else, what you should do is walk out having started your journey and with more of an understanding of what is going on and how with professional and the right home care products you can achieve your skin goals.
Lastly, and most importantly, never forget… feeling confident, being comfortable in your own skin – that’s what really makes you beautiful.
