Guinot Facials @ McGreals Skin Clinic

Hydradermie is the world-famous facial developed in the 1960s by French biochemist Réne Guinot.  It is the most advanced salon treatment for maintaining a balanced, healthy complexion.

Hydradermie deep-cleanses, oxygenates and regenerates the skin and regular treatments offer immediate and lasting results: they improve hydration in dry skin, reduce sebum levels in oily skin, and reduce average wrinkle depth in lined skin.

The facial uses the Hydraderm machine (unique to Guinot), manual massage and plant extracts to restore the skin’s natural beauty.  After analysing the client’s skin, the Guinot skincare expert customises the products used to treat normal/dry, dehydrated, mature, oily, sensitive or hyper-pigmented skin.  Once the skin is gently cleansed and exfoliated, the skincare therapist applies the carefully selected gels and uses mild galvanic current to help the active ingredients penetrate deep into the skin to remove impurities and toxins.

High Frequency action is then used to oxygenate and create an antiseptic effect before the relaxing massage and customised mask.  A touch of moisturiser for the eye contour, face and neck concludes the treatment.

In just a few minutes, the face appears younger and visibly lifted. After the first treatment, you will see the visible results of lifted facial features. The skin has regained its tone and surface wrinkles have faded. This method is like “body building” for the face.

Skin Cancer On The Rise In Ireland & How To Protect Yourself!

With summer 2016 kicking off last weekend, we wanted to write this article to highlight the importance of protecting ourselves from the harmful rays. Some of us are guilty of using sun beds in the past and burning our skin while on holidays, myself included. Some of these figures about skin cancer may make you re think how you protect yourself from the harmful effects of UV Rays.

Skin cancer is on the rise here in Ireland, in fact skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Ireland today with over 8,000 new cases diagnosed each year. A finding on IrishHealth.com claims that 700 Irish people are newly diagnosed with melanoma – the most deadly form of skin cancer – every year and two people die from the disease every week! How scary is that! We all worry about breast cancer and ovarian cancer but why dont we worry about skin cancer?

I suppose it all comes down to us Irish feeling that because we dont live in a ‘hot’ country, we have nothing to be worried about – Ah we’ve no sun here, so I’m grand’. When in actual fact it’s quite the opposite. We have extremely harmful rays beaming down on us daily, even if it’s not sunny and more people are being diagnosed with different forms and stages of skin cancer as it is hugely on the rise. The easiest way to protect yourself is to cover up. Another big factor is sunbeds – they are incredibly dangerous and drastically increase the chances of developing skin cancer so they are best avoided.

Some people think about sun protection only when they spend a day at the beach. But sun exposure adds up day after day, and it happens every time you are in the sun.

Simply staying in the shade is one of the best ways to limit your UV exposure. If you are going to be in the sun..

Slip on a shirt
Wear suncreen
Put on a hat
Wear sunglasses

As part of Skin Cancer Awareness Month at McGreals Pharmacy we are giving away a free car sun shades in store with every child product purchased to do our bit to help protect children from the harmful rays while travelling. For your nearest store location click here
