Important Steps to Improve Your Skin

Improving the condition of skin can be a simple process if followed daily. Your skin is important and something that protects the rest of your body from the harmful effects of the environment be it a disease or other external microbes and bacteria.

While not everyone is necessarily blessed with perfect skin, there are simple ways that people can go about to improve their skin that don’t involve excessive surgery and ensure that health risks are minimised.


This may seem like a relatively basic step, but the Australian sun is strong and it is important that the appropriate steps are taken to minimise its impact.

Avoiding the sun in the hottest part of the day, and when the UV rays are the strongest, is the easiest way to protect the skin from visible aging such as freckles and wrinkles.

Applying sunscreen every 2 hours when in the sun is also important to reducing the impact. Using broad spectrum and SPF50+ products is the best way to ensure that the skin is protected from the sun.

Not only does the sun impact on the way skin looks, but it can also lead to health risks such as skin cancer, making it the most important step in maintaining or achieving perfect skin.

Moisturising daily helps to keep the skin healthy and looking fresh. Moisturiser helps to reduce the water loss experienced by the skin on a daily basis and strengthens its barriers too. The time of the year has a big impact on the amount of moisturising that is necessary.

In the cooler, winter months it is necessary to increase the frequency of moisturising due to the drier air, however in the warmer and more humid months, this can be eased up.


Everyone’s skin picks up lots of dirt throughout the day and week that often isn’t noticeable. These tiny micro particles of dirt can get stuck in pores of the skin and it’s important to clean these out on a regular basis. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin, clear blackheads and whiteheads and keep the skin fresh and strong.

Clearing out the pores of the skin actually helps the rest of your beauty products to work better as they are now able to penetrate the skin rather than just touching the surface.

Essentially, this process provides a thorough cleanse of the skin and helps to maintain its natural appearance by not allowing dirt to enter into the pores of the skin.

Regular Exercise

Putting in a few hours of exercise every week is shown to help improve the skin’s appearance, making it look younger and adding a ‘fresh-faced glow’.

Sweating helps to clear out pores in the skin and exercise in general provides a broad range of health benefits in the process. It is suggested that a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise is completed at least five days a week for the effects on the skin to be substantial.

Vein Removal

In extreme cases, some people may experience swollen veins called varicose veins. This often is not only aesthetically displeasing but also involves significant health risks. Varicose veins are a result of blood not being effectively pumped up towards the heart.

They appear as a bulge just underneath the skin on legs. When they do not function properly the blood that is meant to be pushed up towards the heart now moves or ‘leaks’ downwards due to gravity.

This can have a negative effect on the circulatory system and vein removal in Sydney is recommended to improve both the look of the skin and overall health.

There are four ways to have vein removal in Sydney;

  • Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy – this involves injecting foam to the exact source of the incompetent vein that is then guided and followed via ultrasound to ensure the foam correctly reaches the affected area and removes the blood and lines the walls.
  • Medical Superglue – this method involves simply blocking the varicose vein to prevent blood flow and swelling. This is a walk in, walk out process completed in 20 minutes.
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation – a procedure involving laser, whereby a general anaesthetic is applied before a laser fibre is used to seal the affected area.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation – similar to the laser ablation but instead of a laser fibre, a radiofrequency fibre is used.

Whilst this may only be in some cases, it is estimated that 30% of Australian’s experience varicose veins. Vein removal in Sydney is a simple process and ensures that health is made a priority and limits the likelihood of related future health risks.
