Skin In Check


Glowing, flawless vibrant skin is simply alluring. Attaining it is not as easy as it seems, and the nature of our skin is the greatest indicator of the state of your health. No matter how old you are, it is important to ensure that your skin remains flawless. Beautiful skin is a statement – it reveals the well-being of your inner and outer being. As such, the beauty industry has kept up with our yearning for vibrant skin and is revolutionising the way we care for it. Here are some trends that you will love and are definitely worth a try.

All Natural Products

Sadly, most skin care products in the market are infused with harsh chemicals that end up doing more harm than good. A more hopeful fact is that, with this realisation, more people are now turning to healthier products that are made out of natural components, which help in supplementing our health and achieving radiant skin. Shifting from the use of harsh products to natural products is a welcome move that is changing the view of beauty.

“Elemis products are made out of natural elements that are naturally tested and are very effective for every type of skin whether dehydrated, riddled with acne or a combination of skin types. When you visit us, we do a consultation and we are able to know your skin type and the products that work best for you,” says Milcah Mbiyu, Spa head therapist at Revitalize Wellness Center, at Westlands Nairobi.

 Make-Up With Skin Benefits

Make-up products cover a wide array of beauty needs as they make one look effortlessly flawless. Instead of concealing flaws on our skin, embracing make-up products that combine makeup with skin care is a better idea. How about using a BB cream that packs sunscreen, moisturiser and foundation? Skin care infused make-up products are good at helping you enhance your natural look while at the same time, shortening and simplifying your beauty routine.

Healthy Eating

Your diet and nutrition contribute to the nature of your skin. If you are struggling with your diet and have any digestive problems, this is likely to be reflected in your look.

 “The health of your skin is determined by the state of your gut. If one is experiencing various digestive problems like indigestion, constipation, bloating and other problems of the gastrointestinal tract, then the skin is usually the mirror to explain this state,” says Lucy Muli, a Wellness consultant at Carevile Wellness Centre at Bayswater court along Ngong road.

 Getting out of this rut requires you to evaluate your current diet and eating habits in order to determine what needs improvement. A professional nutritionist will help you in making the right choices and kick-start the beginning of a new, healthier and prettier you.

“A youthful look and beauty go hand in hand with good nutrition. A good flawless youthful skin can be achieved by taking a balanced diet rich in Vitamins A, B complex, E, C and K. These vitamins play a role in strengthening the skin, repairing the skin, maintaining the elasticity of the skin, preventing its dryness and providing anti-aging benefits,” explains Lucy Muli. Additionally, a good skin is also achieved through reduction of sugars, proper rehydration, and frequent exercising.

Facial Treatments

Unfortunately, people think of facial treatments as something you do when you’re older, something that is more of a luxury and is reserved for the well-off. However, regular facial treatments will help you from a lot of expenditure in the future. With the examination of a profession expert to guide you, you will not only discover secrets about your skin, but you will also understand which products work best for your skin. There is a wide array of facial and spa treatments that are meant to refresh, rejuvenate and restore your natural beauty.

Skin Protection

Direct skin exposure to the harsh ultraviolet rays of the sun can damage the skin. Use of sunscreen comes in handy, providing an extra layer that protects you from the harsh rays of the sun, and extra radiations which can contribute to skin cancer. Additionally, anti-pollution products should also be considered in protecting the skin’s keratin which is a skin’s protective layer that prevents premature aging.

 With the game-changing trends and influences in the market, there are limitless possibilities as to what people will do to achieve healthy skin. If you are looking for a fresh start when it comes to your skin, these trends are something to look out for. Switching off your skin routine in a way to incorporate these trends is a good start to a fresh, glowing and healthier skin.
