Problem Skin Spoiling your Selfie?


What Is A Selfie?

Social media has taken the world by storm, and the latest craze to sweep our technology savvy generation is Instagram. This fabulous free photographic app allows users to capture their everyday lives in film and share it with their community and the most common photographs taken by Instagram addicts is the ‘Selfie’, a self portrait showing your new hairstyle, to record a special trip or momentous occasion or simply just for fun. Instagram allows you to apply face friendly filters that can tone down any skin imperfections, but there are some conditions that no filter can rectify and sufferers may then be reluctant to publish their poses.

Natural Remedies

Acne, rosacea and other skin conditions can massively affect an individual’s confidence both at work and at home. The source of problematic skin frequently starts with diet, so the first step is to make sure that your skin is properly hydrated. Our skin cells consist of 70% water, and if not adequately hydrated they shrink and are unable to function properly to remove toxins and repair any damage sustained. Aim to drink at least 2 litres of water a day to keep your skin plump and glowing.


There are several foods that are bad for your skin, and the most common culprit is caffeine. This natural diuretic is found in tea, coffee, chocolate and cola and can dehydrate your skin causing it to become dull and prone to breakouts. Cut down caffeinated beverages as much as possible and try to eat plenty of vitamin rich fruit and vegetables as beta carotene in yellow or orange produce such as carrots and peppers is particularly good for your skin. A three step skin care routine with natural organic products free from parabens, and other nasties is essential to cleanse the skin to remove impurities and replace any lost moisture.

Professional Treatments

If natural remedies don’t improve your skin to your satisfaction, then it is time to try a professional therapy to relieve inflammation and restore your skin’s natural radiance. Some of the most popular treatments at Premier Laser Clinic include the Image Acne lift which is an acne treatment that instantly resurfaces and smooths your skin and the Green Peel that uses natural herbs to cause the top layers of skin to peel off which then stimulates collagen production to give a smoother surface. The Silkpeel is perfect for problem skin as it targets deep in to the dermal layers of your skin with a natural antiseptic salicylic acid based treatment that cleanses your pores inside and out. If you want your skin to appear tighter and brighter then look no further than the Obaji Blue Radiance peel which effectively exfoliates the uppermost skin layers removing any damaged cells and leaving you with a renewed radiant complexion.
