2019 has come to a close and it’s getting to that time of year where we all start making some new year resolutions to make sure we better ourselves throughout 2020. These resolutions could be in the form of any aspect of our lives. It could be to work harder towards that potential promotion, exercise daily to get fitter or to eat better foods to get healthier.


If improving and maintaining your overall skin is on your list then you’ve come to the right place and keep reading. Achieving perfect skin is very much like achieving the perfect body. It doesn’t come easy, it takes time, consistency and hard work. Some will achieve it quicker than others due to their genetic makeup and the fact that everyone’s skin is completely different.


Throughout the year of 2019 we kept a close eye on what was working well for our clients and how they achieved the best results possible. Here are some of our top tips for achieving your skin goals in 2020.


Introduce Collagen Stimulation Treatments

In 2019 our clients so huge success in our skin tightening treatments. These treatments helped to sculpt and contour our clients facial features to make their skin look younger and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Micro Needling and Venus Freeze where one of our most popular treatments that our clients loved and saw the best results from. Results often appear within a few days and really help to enhance your facial features for better complexion and rejuvenation.


Stay Consistent

The key to good skin is consistency. If you’re not working towards your skin goal daily then you’re not doing it right and won’t get the results you want. In 2019 our clients who achieved the best results were the ones who were putting in the hours both in our clinic and at home. Following a specific skincare routine is vital to stay consistent. Set yourself daily goals for your skin and stick to them as this will pay off in the long run. Make sure you’re cleansing your skin regularly and moisturizing regularly too throughout the day.


Get to Know Your Skin

We live in a golden age at the moment where we have access to advanced technology that can really help make a difference in our skin and eliminate guesswork from the process. Through the use of Skinmade we can measure exactly what your skin needs and where it’s lacking. This information can then be used to create your very own tailored moisturiser that is specifically formulated towards your skin. This eliminates guesswork and trial and error of having to try multiple off the shelf products to find the one that works best for your skin. Reviv Genetics is also another powerful form of genetic testing we use here in clinic. We analyze your skins DNA break down to be able to pinpoint exactly what your skin needs in order to reach optimal results. Reviv Genetic isn’t just used for skincare but can be used for health and fitness too.


Protect Your Skin Daily!

This is something that we can’t emphasize strongly enough. We all need to be applying some form of sun protection daily to our skin. If we don’t, we’re exposing our skin to potentially harmful UV rays which can have long term damaging effects on our skin. Even on cloudy days we need to be applying sun protection as UV rays can still penetrate through the clouds and onto our skin. Try sourcing some form of face cream with a built in SPF and get one with as high SPF as possible. A large amount of people understand the importance of wearing sun protection but still don’t apply it. Not only will UV rays damage your skin and overall complexion but puts you at a higher risk to certain types of skin cancer. In our opinion it’s not worth risking it and it can take as little as 30 seconds to apply sun protection.


Get Expert Advice

As Albert Einstein once said “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. If you found that in 2019 you didn’t get the results you wanted for your skin then don’t give up. Speak to an expert who deals with people’s skin every day. They have access to tools, treatments and products that can be used to help every type of skin. At Akina we offer a free consultation to all our clients to understand exactly what they are hoping to achieve from their skin and how we can help them reach their goals.


Set A Plan In Place

As we mentioned above, achieving great skin takes work and effort. Set a plan in place and work towards it everyday. Remember, a goal without a plan is just a wish. Your skin won’t get better over night but you’ll notice in the weeks to follow that you’ll see gradual improvements and begin to see the difference.
