Youth Eye Complex tip from Adrian Baker

Had a late night out or just been kept up all night with the kids?

For me, my life with my 4 year old son doesn’t revolve around partying the night away as it used to, but instead having interrupted sleep and early morning wake ups from him has the same effect – Puffy under eyes and looking tired!

YouthComplex_product.epsMy top tip for fast improvement for the under eyes is a little dab of iS Clinical’s Youth Eye Complex after washing with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex. The effects have been proven to be seen in as little as 4 hours, helping to rapidly reduce puffiness, improve under eye skin quality, and almost blur out the wrinkles in the area.

Then although I may be still tired, I can face the world at least looking refreshed!!

Why we need Vitamin D

August 26th, 2014

Vitamin D is needed at all stages of life for the maintenance of good health as it plays a part in the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, renal, nervous, adipose and immune systems. In layman’s terms it is a requirement for most systems in our bodies not just our bones and the prevention of bone diseases such as rickets and osteoporosis, but also diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

sources-of-vitamin-dIt has been estimated that more than 1 billion people, in both the developed and developing world may be Vitamin D deficient and this can be attributed to a range of factors from decreased exposure to sunlight, inadequate dietary intake, and a variety of socioeconomic factors.

We can increase our levels of Vitamin D through supplementation as well as by lifestyle changes like increasing our physical activity and losing weight, a healthy diet, stopping smoking and enhancing our exposure to sunlight.

At MBNS and Qutis Clinics, we encourage the application of a good sun protection factor such as Is clinical SPF 50 for the prevention of skin cancers and premature ageing of the skin on the parts of our body such as face, chest and hands that receive year round exposure so do we have to balance this with potential Vitamin D deficiency? The amount of sunlight we absorb in these small areas of skin would not provide sufficient Vitamin D alone so we should aim to increase either our Vitamin D intake through food or supplements, ensuring healthy skin and bodies.

Facekini – the latest sun protection craze originating in China Source BBC News

You do know how we here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics continue to tell you about the dangers of sun exposure without a good sunscreen well it seems that the latest craze to hit the beaches of Qingdao in China takes this word of warning to the extreme!

 

Will the facekini catch on over here as a great answer to sunscreen?

SPF 50

Sunscreen UK style – Eclipse SPF 50 from iS Clinical

Introducing the ‘Facekini’ – it is exactly as it states, a bikini for the face to protect it from the sun’s harmful rays!  Women in China have been buying this accessory in their thousands but the comments have not always been that favourable.  Some have described the women looking like an invasion of bank robbers on the beach!

A good idea that may catch on?  Well we cannot take away from the fact that these women are definitely protecting their skin from the sun, however until we see the likes of these on the beaches of Bournemouth to Benidorm, we still advocate the use of a good sunscreen such as iS Clinical’s Eclipse Factor 50 as your optimal summer sunscreen accessory.

Relief from painful shaving with iS Clinical

August 19th, 2014

Aesthetic Nurse Adrian Baker’s top tips for a smoother shave and to prevent irritation:

1.  Wash with Is Clinical Cleansing Complex whilst in the shower, to prepare the skin and remove excess dead skin cells.

Skincare tips from MBNS and Qutis nurse Adrian Baker

iS Clinical shaving tips from MBNS and Qutis nurse Adrian Baker

2.  Shave straight after your shower in the morning. The heat and steam that accumulates in the bathroom will assist in warming the skin and relaxing the hair follicles.

The top 3… iS Clinical Cleanser, Hydra Cool and Sheald just perfect for your shaving routine!

3.  DON’T use very hot water to shave with. This will only shock the skin and cause a stiffening of the hair in the follicle (much like if you were to put cold water on the skin). Instead use warm water on a flannel and hold across the skin on the lower part of your face for about a minute, moistening the skin and allowing the hair follicles to relax.

4.  After shaving, use iS Clinical’s Hydra Cool hydrating serum, it the perfect after shave mo

isturiser.

SHEALD

5.  If you have any irritation, use SHEALD Recovery Balm to calm and soothe the skin.

Lip filler – for more than just the girls!

August 8th, 2014

We here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics treat many of our clients with dermal fillers, and we are pleased to say that many of our male clients are also having this subtle treatment.  I spoke to one such client recently, John, about his reasons for having a lip filler:

photoQ. John, what were your reasons for having a lip filler?

Well I’ve always had quite thin lips, with one being a bit disproportionate to the other,  and so I decided to do some research.  I had read on your website from your clients testimonials that you liked your clients to look natural and not ‘done’, so to speak, so I thought I’d book a consultation and chat with one of your nurses as I wanted a subtle treatment as the last thing I wanted was to have a ‘trout pout!’

Q  How was the treatment itself?

Well I was a little nervous as I don’t like pain at all (who does?) and the lip area is really sensitive, but once the numbing cream had taken effect, I really did not feel much discomfort at all and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!  My nurse, Adrian Baker is very experienced and put me at ease during my treatment.  He used a product called Juvederm Volbella.  I had read about it in various magazines, and online, and knew it was a popular and well established  product.

Q So how to you feel now you’ve had a lip filler?

Well I love them!  It is an understated change, and something I did for me, not anyone else.  The difference is how I wanted it to be: my lips are subtly changed and look more hydrated.  I’m actually quite vain now, catching myself in the mirror, and really liking what I see!
