Great Looking Skin Without Lots of Makeup

How to Get Great Looking Skin Without Lots of Makeup

Looking good doesn’t necessarily mean applying a lot of makeup. If your skin is well-cared for and in good condition a light touch of makeup can give your face a flawless, fresh, natural look.

Your Pores

Unclogging your pores is vital if you want to avoid large, open pores. Keeping pores clean helps them to stay at a normal size and also prevents oily breakouts which can cause spots and acne (SkinBase microdermabrasion is perfect for this!).


If you have oily skin you may be more prone to blackheads. But, they do appear on all skin types. Blackheads are produced when your pores are blocked with dead skin cells and sebum.


Collagen is a protein which is produced throughout the body. It is especially important for bones, tissue and skin.

Collagen is what gives our skin volume and elasticity. When we are young we produce plenty of collagen which is why young skin is smooth and plump. As we age collagen production slows down. Our skin loses its elasticity and lack of moisture causes fine lines and wrinkles.


The good news is that there are treatments you can have which encourage the production of collagen so that your skin regains some of the elasticity and moisture. Read on to find out more…

SkinBase Collagen Lift

Our latest treatment, Collagen Lift ™ helps by stimulating the body’s own natural production of collagen and elastin to reverse the effects of skin ageing – and it’s seriously effective!

During treatment, a ceramic wand delivers waves of radio frequency energy to realign fibres within the skin. The deeper levels of the skin are heated, stimulating several natural responses in the body. Collagen Lift isn’t painful or invasive like a facelift or other medical procedures, in fact it feels similar to a hot stone massage.

SkinBase Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments help you to get rid of blackheads, cleanse your pores, improve your skin tone and encourage collagen production. It’s a non-invasive, painless procedure which will help to get your skin back into tip-top condition.

Your beauty therapist will resurface your skin by using ultra-fine crystals to gently exfoliate your skin. A small hand-held wand is used to get rid of dead skin cells, improve blood circulation and collagen production.

You’ll notice the difference after the very first treatment and as your facials continue, the results will improve even further.
