Top Product’s For Your Skin

This Winter

This time of the year, skin care is very important. As temperatures drop and the heat turns on, moisture is drawn out of the skin causing dryness.

Recently, I am seeing a lot of my clients suffering from flaky, dry and dehydrated skin. You must take extra care to protect your skin and prevent any further damage by using the proper products. My recommended products and treatments are meant to be added in addition to your normal skin care routine (and not used replacements or one-for-all cures).

Vitamin A Retinol

I recommend using Vitamin A Retinol at night-time. Retinol works on a deep cellular level to help your skin heal from the inside out. This powerful product promotes healthy skin cell turnover, decreases collagen breakdown therefore thickening the skin and improving hydration. It also delivers nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells by regulating blood flow.

Barrier Creams

During the day, it is crucial to protect skin from cold temperatures and harsh winds.

Epionce’s Medical Barrier Cream soothes and rebuilds skin by using active ingredients. I personally use this product every day and find it extremely handy when the winter months come around. This cream contains essential fatty acids that are vital for building strong and healthy skin. The EpiB complex contains avocado, rose hip and safflower extracts to hydrate skin to create a soft and smooth texture. This is a great cream for sensitive skin because it is fragrance and paraben free.

Epionce products are available for purchase at our clinic.


The biggest difference between a serum and a cream/lotion is the formulation. Serums leave out airtight, moisturising ingredients (such as petrolatum or mineral oils) that keeps water from evaporating. They also contain fewer lubricating and thickening agents, like nut or seed oils. So, it is a very thin product that absorbs easily into the skin to provide hydrating and renewing effects.

I recommend Epionce’s Intense Defense Serum as a great night-time serum. This is a highly advanced anti-aging serum using botanical sources of Vitamins A, B, C, D and E for healthier-looking skin.


Microdermabrasion treatments leave the face smooth and refreshed, alleviating any dry/flaky skin.

Our medical grade microdermabrasion treatments go above and beyond a regular facial. It uses medical crystals to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of skin. It is suitable for all skin types and all ages. I carry out all the aesthetic treatments at Newpark Clinic. A microdermabrasion treatment takes about 45 minutes and I recommend getting one done every 6-8 weeks. I also include a mask after the exfoliation for extra hydration.

To reserve a free consultation to see what I would recommend for your particular skin, you can message or call the clinic.
