“Went for a facial and felt like every single cell in my face was personally and genuinely cared for. The friendly service is excellent and skilled. I now have a new skin care range and regime. Within two consultations my acne is gone and I am one happy customer who will be back for more!” Philippa

‘Thank you to Lesley at The Beauty Cottage for fixing my eyebrows.  When I came they weren’t in good shape, uneven and every tint I had ever had had been far too dark.  But from the first visit Lesley sorted it out, put my brows in perfect shape and 5 years later every appointment they are still perfect.  (So much so everyone asks me where I get my brows done) – thanks Beauty Cottage!’   – Alana W

ANTI-AGEING SKIN CARE DOESN,T NEED TO BE COMPLICATED

Our ultimate mission is to help you achieve Beautiful Skin for Life.

In addition to your regular salon treatments, best results are obtained when you use great skin care at home. Anti-ageing skincare doesn’t need to be complicated – in fact, it shouldn’t be. Following our simple CSA philosophy will help improve the tone and texture of your skin; leaving it healthy and youthful-looking.

We believe the secret to looking younger for longer is as easy as vitamin C plus sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night. If you look after your skin and follow our simple advice, we believe you can look 40 when you’re 50.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF SUNSCREEN

It is estimated that 80% of skin ageing is caused by the sun. Sadly, skin damage caused by the sun doesn’t only happen when it’s sunny. If it is light out, it means the sun’s rays can still reach you. Even on a cloudy day, you will still get approximately 50% of UV reaching your skin. Wearing high-strength sun protection every day is fundamental for a youthful complexion.

After the age of 20 the skin starts to lose essential proteins mostly through environmental factors- pollution, stress and the major culprit, UV radiation from the sun.

The suns rays twist, break and literally destroy the skins building blocks and these denatured (abnormal) proteins and sugar molecules are then removed and have to be replaced by skin cells. After the age of 20 and increasingly after the age of 30-35 the ability for the skin cells (fibroblasts) to replace these lost building blocks is slowed due to ageing. This whole process is exaggerated in situations where UV exposure is higher because of a reduced UV blocking ozone layer…eg Australia.
