Welcome to our First Blog at Designing Faces! We are so excited to have you here, our dear reader!
Our blog is going to be full of juicy skin care tips, trends in beauty & interviews with renowned specialists from around Newcastle.
This month, we talk all things Autumn, Pigmentation & how to best take care of your skin & health with the change of season.
Wonderful Autumn, time to let go of the old & prepare for hibernation in the winter. Donating any clothes or other household items you haven’t used in ages is fantastically uplifting! Alike Mother Nature herself, it’s the time of year that is perfect to look at things we are hanging onto that are no longer serving us, and to let them go for good.
Thus, similar to our skin health. Letting go of that old, sun-damaged skin from summer’s past and building your skin strength in preparation for winter chills. We highly recommend our Deep Sea Peel to shed the epidermis, removing that old skin for good.
What is the Deep Sea Peel?
The Deep Sea Peel is a non-acidic, chemical free, marine based peel that combines natural sea herbs & essential oils which are massaged into the skin to initiate a cascade of cellular processes. This incredibly effective peel works well for assisting the fine lines & wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation & scarring.
The Deep Sea Peel lifts the epidermis to promote shedding and removal of old, damaged skin cells. Shedding begins between day 3-4. As excess skin is sloughed off, the skin naturally replenishes moisture levels, renews collagen synthesis and improves overall epidermal structure. As the natural healing process is taking place we advise to exfoliate 7 days post treatment. When the surface layer of the skin is removed, fresh, rejuvenated skin is revealed and can absorb active ingredients easier.

Keep your eye on the sun
While this is a perfect time to be removing the old and revealing the new, your skin will be hypersensitive to the harsh Australian rays that we are so blessed with. Even though it feels like the sun has disappeared, never to be seen again, that doesn’t mean the damaging effects for your skin aren’t still there.
Whether you’re heading to the park to walk the dog, catching up with friends for a coffee or planning on doing some gentle exercise over the weekend, remember to always slip on a t-shirt, slop on a hat and slip on some sunscreen to protect your skin from premature ageing and even skin cancer.
For best protection, the Australian Cancer recommends a combination of sun protection measures:
- 1 Slip on some sun-protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible.
- 2 Slop on broad spectrum, water-resistant SPF30 (or higher) sunscreen. Put it on 20 minutes before you go outdoors and every two hours afterwards. Sunscreen should never be used to extend the time you spend in the sun.
- 3 Slap on a hat – broad brim or legionnaire style to protect your face, head, neck and ears.
- 4 Seek shade.
- 5 Slide on some sunglasses – make sure they meet Australian Standards.
According to research, for sunscreen to be an effective physical barrier against UV rays it must be able to attach to the stratum corneum (the most ouster layer of the skin) an not penetrate the epidermis.
As always, we recommend coming in to our clinic for your complimentary skin analysis to determine the best treatment plan for you.
We have a range of skin protecting products in clinic including Envirostat 50+ which feels divine on the skin – non-greasy & lightweight.
Until next month, Designing Faces x
