Wrinkle treatment is not usually the first treatment a 20-something would tend to think about; most of us tend to believe this treatment is something you turn to in your late 30s or 40s.

Having clear, smooth skin is considered to be one of the principle ways we maintain youthful good looks, and a healthy glow. Sometimes, however, skin can develop acne which seriously undermines confidence, and creates challenges when it comes to looking and feeling your best. Acne is the most common skin complaint which people suffer with, and doesn’t discriminate when it comes to age, race or skin type. It is estimated that around 80 percent of people will develop acne at some point in their lives, usually starting in the teenage years, and affecting people up to the age of around 30.
Stretch marks are narrow white or red lines that appear, usually across the surface of the skin of the stomach, buttocks, thighs and upper arms, affecting both women and men. So, what causes stretch marks and what can you do to get rid of them?

Never underestimate the power of a smile. When we smile, our muscles help to release endorphins, making us feel happy on the inside and exuding confidence to the outside world. We all want to achieve the perfect smile. However, aside from poor dental health, many of us suffer from lip and mouth concerns that can make us shy away from flashing our grins. Read more about three common lip predicaments that hinder our quest for a flawless smile.
Beauty may be only skin deep but when you don’t feel good about how you look, it can impact every aspect of your life. When your skin feels dry, oily or overly sensitive, it can affect your self-esteem and make you feel less than worthy. True beauty comes from within, but there is more that can be done to make your skin better.
One of the most common concerns our clients seek help with here at Fiona Clossick Facial Aesthetics is the wrinkling and lining of the neck. Today we will discuss why the skin on the neck is so vulnerable to damage and what we can do to counter this.
As you wave goodbye to summer, your skin transitions to another season alongside the weather. Summer has left your skin in need of gentle love and care, to repair the damage done by the sun and the heat. Before autumn completely settles in, ensuring your skin is ready for the cooler months is important.
The winter can play havoc with our skin, with extreme weather conditions, low temperatures and fluctuations in humidity all able to cause damage. In the winter months, it’s common for skin to feel dehydrated, itchy and dull – but it doesn’t have to. Here at Fiona Clossick, we’ve put together our top five tips for preparing your skin for the winter months.

Wake up and smell the coffee. Then after you’ve enjoyed your much needed morning brew, save the leftover coffee beans to be used as part of your beauty routine. We’re not joking! Not only can coffee start your day off in a good way, it also comes with a list of skincare benefits. It can be used for a number of reasons and it’s cheap and convenient. Not convinced? We think you will be after hearing our reasons for why you should be utilising coffee in your beauty regime.
Men, we know you need to take care of your skin too. Exfoliating, moisturising, cleansing and eating the right foods are all well and good if you don’t need to worry about keeping your beard hair neatly trimmed or completely absent. Your skin is delicate, it’s exposed to the elements and suffers from time to time at the claws of the dreaded razor blade. With this in mind, we thought we’d help you find out the best ways to take care of your skin.
Another summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and we can’t believe that it’s already time to start preparing for autumn. Just like you swap your summer wardrobe for something more appropriate, your skin care routine is no different. As the seasons change, your skincare routine should adapt too. A lot of people mistakenly think that they should be using the same products all year round, but this isn’t entirely true. Whilst some products can be used any time of the year, there are certain things you should be adding to your autumn routine. Here are some beauty tips to keep you looking amazing all the way through the autumn.
