dr kubickaValentine’s Day is upon us again and in 2014, it falls on a Friday – perfect timing for a great night out!

Valentine’s Day is big business. In 2013, it was estimated that Brits spent just under £1bn on gifts and going out alone. In addition, there is often extra spent on new clothing, cosmetics and hair styling for the ‘big day’. It is certainly a time when many Brits put in a bit of extra time and effort to look beautiful.

Integrated skin and healthcare expert Dr Barbara Kubicka offers her advice on how to make the skin look radiant for Valentine’s Day. Surprisingly, that doesn’t have to mean expensive salon treatments. The best beauty treatments for the skin start with good nutrition and lifestyle choices:

Dr Kubicka explains:

“A few strategic changes to diet and lifestyle can transform the skin.”

“Start by cutting back on coffee and sugary snacks. Start to drink more water and if possible choose alkalised Kangen Water. Ensure your diet contains lots of green veg to neutralise the acids created.”

“If you know your diet is not as healthy as it could be, starting a detox a week or two in advance of Valentine’s Day will bring about visible changes to your skin in time for the big night; although it is always preferable to maintain good nutrition year round as much as possible (though we do know that’s easier said than done!).”

“Also take a look at your lifestyle. Try to include at least half an hour’s active exercise each day to boost circulation and you’ll also tone up a little too. If you are exercising outdoors, don’t forget sunscreen, even in February the sun’s rays can be ageing.”

“Finally, if you have been working too hard, take a little me-time to relax and readdress the balance in your life. People who are comfortable in their own lives tend to be more confident and poised, which is much more attractive than being with someone who is stressed out and pre-occupied with work.”

“Beauty is a very subjective value, but charm and confidence are recognised and admired by everyone. Smile more and you will radiate an inner confidence that people can see.”

In addition to sensible diet and lifestyle advice, there are a number of beauty treatments that can help to create a more glowing skin and Clinicbe certainly have a range of the latest and best non-invasive treatments.

For those seeing lines and wrinkles appear, botox and dermal filler injections remain very popular options. However, there are many other approaches which can also be very helpful.

The clinic offers the latest IPL laser technology, which offers remarkable skin rejuvenation results by firming and tightening the skin as well as dealing with ageing sun spots or thread veins.

Dr Kubicka also enjoys an excellent reputation for mesotherapy. Set to be one of the hottest treatments of 2014, this involves tiny injections of specially chosen formula right into the skin’s mid layer where they can be most effective. As well as supplying nutrients into the skin, the injection process stimulates the skin’s own collagen production and renewal processes for a double benefit.
