Cold Weather Skin

That gorgeous long summer is well behind us and so its time to start prepping our skin for the colder weather months (brrrrr).

Whilst for us those hot days seem a far distant memory but not for your skin!

During Summer it is UV that is the main cause for barrier damage resulting in sensitivity, dryness and exaggerated lines that are often worsened by new trends of skincare treatments such as derma planning, microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing or the old fashioned scrub exfoliatiors.

Our protection skin barrier (Stratum Corneum) only makes up the surface layer of our skin - between 0.01 – 0.02 mm in thickness and is our protection and water proofing against the environment and external aggressors. Why would we want to constantly destroy it through harsh treatments that only provide temporary results and can bring long term damage?

At BLOMSTRA, skin health is always at the forefront of our mind and so we want to help you to keep your skin healthy all year round.

‘Whenever you see inflamed skin, regardless of cause, the Stratum Corneum (protective layer of the skin) is leaky and permeable. But, if you repair the Stratum Cornuem, that tells the underlying tissues that they don’t have to keep reacting like there’s danger in the environment”. ALBERT KILGMAN M,D, PHD, 1919 – 2010

Corneotherapy is a remedial skin treatment method with a core principle that s the repair and maintenance of the skin's barrier (stratum corneum).

At BLOMSTRA we offer specific skin treatments such as the Hydroboost facial and prescribed homecare to fix, repair and protect this delicate yet so important layer of they skin especially when the temperature starts to drop.
