Review: Clear + Brilliant Laser

A few months ago I went for my annual check-up with Dr Webster and he told me about the latest innovation in laser treatments: the Clear + Brilliant laser (CBL). The CBL is a non-ablative fractional laser* that is considered to be one of the most gentle fractional laser treatments on the market (*non-ablative means that there are fewer side effects and minimal/no downtime, but that more treatments may be required to achieve results.

Skincare Game Changer // SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier Serum Review & Giveaway!

Hyaluronic Acid (“HA”) is a natural substance found in the human connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate. It is also a humectant, meaning that it draws water from the environment into the skin, helping to keep it hydrated.

Introducing Dermastore – The Skin Doctor’s Boutique

Dr Ian Webster has been mine and my family’s dermatologist for nearly 20 years. He is meticulous, patient and kind, and has helped us tackle and resolve our skin issues in a calm, confident manner – an approach which much needed in the midst of the anguish and torment caused by acne and other aggressive skin conditions. He was also the first dermatologist to bring laser skin therapy to Southern Africa and underwent post-graduate training in laser surgery at Harvard Medical School. So essentially, yes, he’s the best. I see him annually to have my moles mapped and to have a…

Hyaluronic Acid: What You Need To Know

Samantha - SATC

Acid? On my face? Computer says no! I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I also used to struggle with wrapping my head around the link between ‘acid’ and skincare – it automatically made me think of this infamous scene of Samantha from Sex and the City: But fear not, there are actually a load of different acids that are fabulous for your skin – glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and hyaluronic acid to name but a few. I have been having glycolic peels for the past couple of months to help ease congestion and even out my skin tone, and…
