How to get radiant, healthy skin and keep it

Gone are the days of anti-ageing beauty talk; as far as our skin is concerned: healthy, glowing, even-toned skin is beauty’s new holy grail. We talk to Caci Training Academy Manager, Sonya Hatangadi, about what it means to have healthy skin, how to get healthy skin and how to look after it once you’ve got it.

What is healthy skin?

Healthy skin is confident skin. We all have our own definitions that make us comfortable in our own skin. The list can be long and varied but healthy skin is hydrated, glowing, even in colour, firm and tight. These are all factors that contribute to skin confidence.

What factors can impact on skin health?

Our skin changes over time, and what was once flawless and smooth, can start to show signs of loss of tone, texture and clarity. Intrinsic ageing, caused by the genes we inherit, is natural skin ageing. Extrinsic ageing, caused by environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking, alcohol, repetitive facial expression – among others, contributes to premature skin ageing. To an extent, extrinsic factors are something we can control and improve on, and change to restore youthfulness that has previously been lost.

What are the benefits of having regular treatments as opposed to one-off treatments?

Good skin takes time, and Caci has over 20 years’ experience in skin treatments. We know that ‘one off’ treatments are a great way to treat your skin – but for truly long lasting results, investing in a Skin Health Plan is the key to achieving results. This helps you achieve fresher, brighter and healthier skin for longer. Everybody deserves to have great skin…it’s just one of the things we do best.

 

What lifestyle changes are important for skin health?

Lifestyle factors play a huge part in the appearance and health of our skin. The pursuit skin confidence doesn’t have to be difficult if you remember a few fundamentals it can not only prevent various skin concerns but also help maintait skin health.

Here are a few of the most important factors to set you on your way for healthy, glowing skin:

  • Develop a good skincare routine: Sunscreen or an SPF moisturiser every single day to protect UV damage
  • Hydration and diet: Keeping well hydrated combined with a healthy diet, high in fruit and vegetables will help to improve your overall health, as well as your skin.
  • Sleep: Getting enough sleep regularly can ensure that our skin looks younger and healthier. That 7-8 hours per night can help to combat a tired and dull skin.

Treatment to try this winter

A dip in Polynesian Spa’s lakeside acidic and alkaline pools, followed by a reflexology walk and a cold plunge pool are wellness expert Makaia Carr’s go-to for increased energy levels and a boosted immune system. The hot pools help ease muscle aches while a walk over the reflexology stones stimulates pressure points increasing energy and blood flow through the body. A final plunge in the cold pool causes muscles to expand and contract, offering a gentle method of detoxification.
