Pores, textures, lines, and wrinkles are all things we suffer from, especially as we get older. However, what if we tell you that these are some things you don’t need to deal with? Skincare and treatments can go a long way with either rectifying or preventing these concerns. So, what are these products and treatments that can lead you to flawless youthful looking skin?
Microbotox is one of the newer botox-based injections treatments that have recently emerged on the market. The only difference between regular botox and microbotox is the technique used to prevent some of the issues discussed above. With microbotox, certified nurse injectors use a very fine needle, almost the same width as a strand of hair, and is injected to the areas of concern. Microbotox offers a more natural looking appearance, as it is more superficial, whereas with regular botox, the boto is injected beneath the muscles below the skin. Apart from treating crows feet, wrinkles and fine lines, the technique also helps with reducing pore size and texture, as it tightens the skin. Give us a call to book your appointment!
Retinol is a great skincare product not only for acne, but also to treat fine lines and wrinkles, alongside pore size. Retinol increases skin-cell turnover, cleaning the pores more often, which can reduce the size of your pores. When selecting your retinol, ensure it is Vitamin A derived, as these are the most effective when reducing pore size and treating fine lines and wrinkles. Check out our skin-cycling blog to see how you can incorporate retinoids into your routine!
Some retinoids we recommend are:
Alpha Hydroxy Acids + Beta Hydroxy Acids
AHA’s and BHA’s are a great product to add to your skincare routine, as it can help exfoliate the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin, stimulating new skin growth. This not only helps with fine lines and wrinkles, but can also help with cleaning out the pores, thus, reducing pore size.
Some our of favorites include:
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, SUNSCREEN!
Say it with me, I NEED A SUNSCREEN IN MY ROUTINE! The absolute most effective way of looking youthful, radiant, and all around perfect is sunscreen. Not only should you be wearing it everyday, you need to ensure you are also applying the correct amount, and reapplying it throughout the day. Not only can it help with burning and sun damage, it is perhaps the best anti-aging product out there.
So, which are the best picks? See below:
- Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 PA+++
- Isntree – Hyaluronic Acid Watery Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++ – 50ml (Use code SHOPMANDYP for 15% off at Stylevana)

So, which will it be? Microbotox, skincare, or sunscreen? We suggest a combination of all three! 😉
