What is Microneedling?

At the end of Feb I am completing my training in microneedling, I am really looking forward to doing this, as its the new non-surgical procedure everyone has been raving about. So what is it, and what does it involve......Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy, and collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a minimal invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a roller that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture creates a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. This will improve the skins texture, firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size and even stretch marks. 

The below pictures shows you what results you can achieve.....amazing!

What is the difference between over the counter products and cosmeceutical products?

What is the difference between over the counter products (cosmetic) and cosmeceutical products, like Nimue? 

After watching a TV advert last night for Olay Total Effects Moisturiser, Stuart asked me "What is the difference between that product and your Nimue Skincare products?"

So I have decided to write a little simplistic blog about it......

With OTC cosmetic brands, we are all drawn in to the big glossy magazine adverts and the very expensive TV adverts, with attached to that comes a celebrity face too, how fabulous! All claiming they will change the appearance of your skin........correct, they will ONLY change your skins appearance.

Cosmetic brands only work on the outer most part of your skin and guess what......its already DEAD! So how can it help? Well is doesn't help, it can't fix something that's dead, it just makes your skin appear to look better, by sitting on the surface and making it look for one of a better word 'shinny', its basically having no effect on your skin at all. The active ingredients are so low in the product, because they sell millions of them each day, with no one around to give you advice on the product. Which means, many of you are just 'self-diagnosing' so its very important that these products are made so safely so that they don't cause any irritations. 

As for Nimue products they are a derma-cosmeceutical range,a  merging of cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredients and they are licence for only a skincare professional to prescribe. Basically the word "cosmeceutical" entered the general vocabulary in the 1990s. Derived from a combination of the words "cosmetics" and "pharmaceuticals",the word describes a non –prescription product for cosmetic use containing high grade ingredients into your skin offering dramatic results. These professional grade products have been scientifically researched and tested to ensure they actually have an effect on the skin. A far step from the cleanse, tone and moisturise regimes of the past, they are about addressing skin concerns at a deeper level and protecting your skin from external forces, such as the sun and pollution, which cause premature ageing.

To put it simply…...they give your skin a work out, they really work and you will see results! Nimue is clinically tested and trialled, with proven before and after photographs and even better they won't break the bank......perfect!!
