Looking after your skin is a constant challenge, dictated by the seasons, your age and your environment. I've been talking to Sarah Young at the Independent about how the cold weather can impact your skin and along with other contributors we look at how you can combat the cold!
"Icy cold temperatures have affected many parts of the UK in recent weeks, while the US has suffered at the hands of a polar vortex with temperatures reaching minus 40F (-40C).
A significant cold snap such as this comes with a sundry of complications, from school closures to ongoing travel disruptions, but for the beauty obsessed among us, the most concerning of them all is the emergence of dry, scaly skin...

What is Xela Rederm
Xela Rederm is a non-cross linked Hyaluronic Acid and Succinic Acid injectable which performs in a similar way to PRP(platelet rich plasma), reducing pigmentation and stimulating the skin elasticity and hydration. It also works on a cellular level to stimulate collagen and elastin along side eliminating free radicals.
Combining PRP & Xela Rederm
The results from a study showed that this new treatment, PRP-Xela Rederm, provides stronger and faster results on elasticity, pigmentation, erythema (redness) and hydration.
This research focused on 14 female patients (aged 35 to 65) and showed an irrefutable improvement:
* On ALL 14 patients
Hair Loss & Hair Recovery
Whether your hair loss is related to gender or illness there is help available.
Male Hair Loss
Male hair loss is usually attributable to genetics (Androgenetic Alopecia) and more specifically, to the conversion of the male hormone testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone – DHT. DHT decreases blood flow to the hair follicle causing hair density to progressively miniaturize. Early signs of this type of hair loss include:
Receding Hair Line
Thinning on Top
Whispy and thin hair

Collagen stimulating treatment that works from within.
While some of us reach for richer moisturisers to apply come winter, others are choosing to inject moisture into their skin.

Rederm is a great injectable treatment that provides clinically proven protection against reactive oxygen species, free radicals meanwhile stimulating collagen and elastin, and hydrating the skin for up to nine months after the treatment.
Succinic acid is the molecule that is responsible for cellular health and energy....

A recent hot topic in the world of beauty and skincare has been the use of probiotics to improve the appearance of your skin, particularly for those prone to acne.
Probiotics and Acne
Probiotics contribute to eliminating toxins and free radicals in the body and research has shown that they perform a role in skin heath, such as improving atopic dermatitis, promoting the healing of scars and burns, rejuvenating the skin and strengthening the skin’s immunity. For acne sufferers who may have unhealthy guts, supplementing with probiotics, particularly lactobacillus acidophilus and the yeast saccharomyces cerevisiae, will often improve their acne.
Probiotics and Eczema

Rosacea is a common skin condition that usually affects the face, in particular the nose and cheek areas. The area can become red, flush easy and sometimes pustules form. Broken and dilated blood vessels (telangiectasia) can cause the redness and flushing.
There have been many theories postulated, as to the cause but we still do not know the exact cause. Oral and topical antibiotics are available and also some new creams/gels that can attack the demodex mite (which may be responsible for rosacea), and also reduce flushing but these treatments do not always control the rosacea.
Research is pointing to a neurogenic cause i.e. stimuli from the nervous system may affect...
Episode 10 of Don't tell the Doctor saw Kyri get treatment for his Dissecting Cellulitis.
Kyri had been suffering with this condition for sometime and had taken to wearing a head scarf to cover his condition. With his forthcoming wedding approaching he decided it was time to do something about it.
What is Dissecting Cellulitis?
Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp is a rare condition in which pus-filled lumps develop on the scalp, resulting in scarring and permanent hair loss over the area affected.
