Sports Recovery

Date: 01/03/2018

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

Recovery following exercise is essential to muscle and tissue repair as well as fluid replacement. Competitive athletes push their bodies to the limit, consuming large amounts of vital nutrients as a normal part of metabolism.

This metabolism converts carbohydrates, fats and proteins found in food, into energy through a complex series of chemical reactions. These reactions are catalysed by enzymes and these metabolic enzymes require vitamin and mineral co-factors in order to function, these include:

Damage Undone – Summer Pigmentation

Date: 01/01/2018

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

We know that the start of a New Year has many challenges and that as much as a holiday is good for the mind body and soul, the skin isn’t always as delighted at the changes in exposure to the various elements.

Summer holidays are always about… the sun! The resultant evidence of this, are those unwanted pigment spots and uneven skin tone that makes its appearance after the holiday.

Stress on the Skin & Body

Date: 01/11/2017

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

At some point all of us have experienced waking up, dragging ourselves to the bathroom, looking in the mirror and thinking – oh no! Breakouts, allergic reactions, puffiness, redness, sensitivity, eczema, flaking... all of these conditions have one thing in common: STRESS.

Stress inflicts a multitude of (mostly) negative effects on the body and skin. This is a subject that I could talk about for hours but for the purposes of this newsletter (which we like to keep short, sweet and meaningful) let’s focus on how we at Pure Aesthetics can assist.

Summer Skin Shape Up

Date: 01/10/2017

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

As we escape the grip of cold and enter our warmer months, it is only natural that we will be inclined to be shedding our winter wardrobes and heading outdoors (well some of us).

Our skin too will feel these changes taking place and may feel like it needs a boost to see it through these external changes.

Why Commitment is the Essential Ingredient to Beautiful Skin

Date: 26/09/2017

Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics) - Published in A2 Magazine Issue 23

The skin is the biggest and most complex organ of the body, forming a barrier on the periphery to protect all that lies beneath it. This makes it the first line of defence when under attack from external influences.

The face and hands are especially vunerable to these influences, as they are exposed the most: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

Too often we see Eczema symptoms being treated, rather than getting to the root cause. Unfortunately there are many differing opinions of how Eczema develops and the treatment thereof. We do however know a few facts through ongoing Eczema research:

  • Eczema develops more in childhood than adulthood
  • There is a direct link between Eczema & Asthma and/or hay fever
