For anyone at university, taking care of your skin can be a challenge. Late nights out with your friends, having to watch the pennies as well as perhaps not the healthiest diet on the planet can lead to dull, dehydrated skin and at university age, conditions such as acne can play havoc with your complexion.
At Skin Perfection, at the heart of the west end and only minutes away from Harley Street, probably the world’s most famous location for cosmetic skin enhancement, we understand that if you are at university but still want to look your best, a helping hand such as 20% off all skin treatments can go a long way to maintaining a healthy, glowing appearance. So, we are offering all students the chance to save their pennies but still enjoy some exquisite, luxury skin treatments which are clinically-proven and highly-effective.
We also came up with these 5 top tips, to help you stay looking gorgeous on a shoestring budget!
H2O – Stay Hydrated
Water can be your best friend when you’re burning the candle at both ends! It’s free, it hydrates the skin and flushes out nasty toxins from the body.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day can work wonders for your skin and it can come in the form of tea, coffee or squash, just watch your caffeine intake as this can have the opposite effect on your complexion. Green tea, Jasmine or Red Bush tea are great hydrators for the skin and also contain antioxidants to help battle against environmental free radicals.
Keeping your skin protected with a high-factor SPF sun cream all-year-round is probably one of the most important things for you to help stave off the signs of early ageing and keep your skin supple.
A good choice could be an SPF with a tint or a BB cream. This means you’re not having to use 2 products and making a saving, whilst protecting your skin and giving yourself a healthy glow as well!
Simple but effective skincare
Cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturising your skin at home can work wonders for your skin. Using quality products may be a little more costly at the front end, but these products usually only require small amounts to be used each time and can prevent a whole host of skin problems down the line.
Some cheaper products are a false economy and can lead to allergic reaction, sensitivity or can even clog the pores, a no-no for oily, combination or acne prone skins. Invest now and see the difference our range of cosmeceutical skincare treats can make to your skin (and save 20% in the process).
Ok, so it’s not always the easiest to eat well when you’re at uni. Takeaways and fast fixes tend to be the ‘go-to’ as they are fast and cheap. However, having at least 2 to 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables a day can make a real difference to the health of your skin.
Try investing in a smoothie maker or juicer and go to your local bargain store, or market, to buy up the budget range of fruit and veg. When it’s all blended with a little yoghurt or banana, it’ll taste amazing and give your skin that vitamin boost for radiance and vitality.
Sleep is your best friend when it comes to the health of your skin (and your mind). Burning the midnight oil might seem like a good idea at the time, but too much studying (and partying) and not enough sleep can have an extremely negative effect on your body. The skin repairs itself at night when you sleep.
Depriving yourself night-in-night-out will not only result in a poor skin quality (including dark circles and bags around the eyes) but can affect your cognitive function, emotional state and your ability to absorb vitamins from the foods you consume. Try and get at least 7 to 8 hours a night at least 3 to 4 times a week. Your whole being will thank you for it.
