natural health get ready for summerclinicbe’s Dr Barbara Kubicka writes regularly for Natural Health magazine. 

Her latest article “Get Ready for Summer” looks at how we can get our skin ready to face the sun with a healthy and radiant glow.

The first and most important point is sun protection. Tempting though it is to grab every last ray with the minimum of protection, this is not the best way to get a healthy golden tan and stores up problems for the future.

As the article explains:

The most important element of any skin care routine should be sun protection. Preventing sun damage is so much easier and more effective than treating it.

After the winter, the change in temperature and humidity can start a range of skin problems.

Dr Kubicka recommends 5 fabulous options for stimulating and improving the skin from within. Dr Kubicka explains,

My favourite treatment is mesotherapy. This involves a series of tiny injections of carefully chosen vitamins or hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring water retainer). Delivered directly into the skin’s mid layer, the mesotherapy treatment nourishes the skin while the injection process kick-starts the skin’s own healing and renewal processes for firmer, tighter skin.

Chemical peels are also an effective choice, providing gentle yet effective exfoliation to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing clearer brighter skin beneath. These can also help with previous sun damage and smooth away fine lines and pigmentation irregularities.

IPL laser treatment uses the power of safe light waves to treat the skin, tackling issues such as thread veins and pigmentation as well as prompting skin rejuvenation processes for clearer, brighter skin.

PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy) is a good choice for more mature skin or skin which is very tired or damaged.

For a pampered feeling and an instant glow, cosmetology facials can be tailor-made to suit each individual’s skin care needs.


Dr Kubicka takes a holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have. Private consultations often include individual advice on nutrition, hydration and lifestyle as well as professional treatments.
