Make a New Years Resolution for Your Skin


Already it’s December, rushing into Christmas and then the January holidays. It’s such a mix of crazy-busy and chill-out-slow-down. It’s also a time for reflection, taking stock of our goals and life direction, making New Year's resolutions.

Often we don’t make enough time for ourselves in the rat-race of life. I don’t mean we should be self-absorbed and self-centred. It’s just that if we don’t allow ourselves quiet time, to be peaceful and “listen”, we will never be able to focus ourselves in life. To be all we can be, not only for ourselves but also for our friends, family and the community at large, we need to find these moments. If we want this world to be a better, safer place – it starts with each one of us individually.

To start with, make this new year the time to set goals for your skin! How often do you look in the mirror and realise that the health of your skin is not all it could be. UV light creates 80% of the damage we see in our skin, and in Australia, everyone will have accumulated some of that! This might include brown spots, redness, broken vessels, lines and dull skin. At worst it may be you’re dealing with skin cancers. There is something that everyone can do to improve these issues.

It could be as simple as learning about the best sunscreens. We need to use sunscreen every single day, whether at work, or out and about. The whole spectrum of light can trigger damage in skin. Avoiding more UV damage now will make your future skin much happier. Learn what home care treatment is worth using. Or it might be that you are looking for more active treatments to reverse those changes. There really is something for you, wherever you are on that spectrum.

At The Mayah Clinic, we are passionate about meeting people where they are. Listening to what they need and what they are able to take on – providing direction, education, suggestions and active treatments as required.

We love becoming a partner with our clients on their skin journey. We are all different. Our initial skin consultation at the Mayah Clinic aims to learn what makes you and your skin tick. It includes a full in-depth skin analysis with Visea images, a consultation with myself (covering education about your skin, options for improvement and a full future-plan for skin management if desired). This is an hour of personalised analysis, assessment and discussion. It is the first step to beautiful healthy glowing skin.

Of course, part of your holiday chill-out time may be able to incorporate improving your skin too! At the Mayah Clinic, we offer the full range of effective Rationale Skincare Facials. From the short half hour active enzyme facial that will leave you glowing, to the hour and a half of active ingredients plus full-scale pampering of the Epinova Photosonic Facial.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! See you soon!
