organic skincareWanting to look fresher and younger than we really are is pretty universal. The market for anti-ageing treatments is vast, worth billions each year.

There are arguably many routes to looking younger.

The purists and the green-brigade argue that sensible everyday lifestyle practices are all you need. It’s true that simply practicing good habits for everyday living lays a vital foundation for youthful skin. This means no smoking, healthy diet, exercise, caution with regard to the sun, sensible drinking – all of these help keep our skin looking healthy and fresh.

While some may argue that the skin should be allowed to ‘balance itself’, a more popular route is to use some organic skin preparations using natural ingredients for cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising to complete the regime. Without doubt, a good skincare regime at home is very important in helping the skin to retain a healthy glow. Making sure the skin is kept clean, buffed and moisturised helps it to stay in condition.

At the other extreme lies cosmetic or plastic surgery, nipping and tucking the skin that becomes loose with age to keep it taut and smooth.

However, in between these 2 perceived extremes lie professional skin treatments such as botox and laser therapy treatments. These use the latest skincare technology to tackle lines and wrinkles and stimulate the production of new collagen for firmer skin and a clearer complexion.

Yet surprisingly, the professional skin treatments approach is not totally alien from the idea of natural, organic anti-ageing.

In fact, the development of organic products which are powerfully effective on the signs of ageing is one of the most exciting areas in anti-ageing skin care today.

Organic Anti-Ageing Knightsbridge

Dr Barbara Kubicka, founder of Clinicbe based in Knightsbridge, is a great fan of the organic and natural approach to medicine.

She favours integrated skin and healthcare, a holistic approach to looking good. This concept works from the inside to prevent or delay the signs of ageing as long as possible, rather than just trouble-shooting lines and wrinkles as they appear.

Her consultations include personalised nutrition and lifestyle advice tailored to each client’s needs.

She also offers or suggests suitable skincare products, favouring naturally based organic preparations where possible.

This approach prepares the skin well, so that professional treatments can have the maximum benefit and impact.

There are also a range of naturally based professional skin treatments to consider that use no artificial toxins or chemicals.

  • Dermaroller – micro-needling the skin stimulates its natural healing processes and also prepares it to absorb skin creams deep into the skin’s structure
  • PRP – platelet rich plasma therapy actually uses the patient’s own blood, purified and concentrated to offer high levels of powerful plasma which is applied or injected back into the skin
  • Mesotherapy – tiny injections of natural mineral or vitamin preparations
