[caption id="attachment_1064" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Hydration is key to skin health[/caption] We often hear that hydration is important for our bodies and skin. But why is that? At least 60% of our bodies are made up of water. That's a more than half! When the body is dehydrated not only can it cause internal problems, but actually the first sign of problems inside the body is on the skin. Your built-in body monitor The skin is like our own built-in body monitor. If it looks...

If you are prone to very dry, flaky skin that gets worse in the winter months and is not oily to the touch then the chances are that this is certainly a dry skin condition. But what about dehydrated skin? This is actually very different. If your skin is oily but still feels flaky, tight...

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?   Also known as IPL - Intense Pulsed Light - this is becoming an increasingly popular way to treat unwanted skin conditions as well as excess hair. Some of the common methods of hair removal include: shaving, waxing, epilators (which pluck the hair from the root) and depilatory creams (which disintegrate the hair on the surface). But the problem with all of these methods are the constant upkeep. Hair is designed to grow and for some...

What sun damage can do to your skin We all love a good bit of sunshine - especially here in the UK and London where the clinic is based. Whether it is basking in the shade or heading to the nearest park or beach for a bit of colour, the sun is a wonderful thing to have around - and for more than one day too! I think the South of England has been particularly lucky this year. I only had to...

We are incredibly excited to share this wonderful success from our latest melasma treatment. "What is melasma?" I hear you ask. Melasma is a skin pigmentation - usually showing up in patches on the sufferer's face which can effect all skin types. Although those with darker skin or who live in hotter countries can be more prone to it, anyone can have a sudden onset of melasma in their life. It isn't an allergy, it isn't a virus or infection and it...

"I have the newest anti-ageing cream. Why would I need treatment?" So often at Le Pelle we hear of clients (and clients to be) using the 'latest anti-ageing cream' to handle fine lines, wrinkles and increase skin elasticity. True, there are certain ingredients that will give the surface of your skin the appearance of youth as a quick fix, but products can only do so much as they never actually reach the deepest layer of your skin. When you look at a person...
