Skin Care Tips

Tear Trough Filler(Under Eye Hollows)The skin is the body’s largest organ, it’s also our biggest defence against infection and of course, premature ageing. Proper skincare keeps this barrier healthy and strong, and it also rewards you with a radiant complexion.

In 2018 the team at Elite Aesthetics want to support you as you set your skin care resolutions, whether you’re the most disciplined skincare enthusiast or a complete beginner.

Read on for our top new year skincare resolutions for the upcoming year; start small and slowly add these practices into your daily routine or jump-start your New Year with an entirely brand-new regimen altogether.

1. Moisturise after showering

Warm showers strip the skin of essential oils. Keep body lotion right in the shower and apply while your skin is wet. “If you wait”, says Dr Shirin, “skin starts to lose water vapour. Remember to choose a body lotion with a flip top as pump bottles allow water in which can lead to bacteria.”

2. Take off your makeup at night

It’s absolutely vital to take off your makeup before bed – no matter how tired you may feel. “Makeup can trap skin oils and dirt which in turn leads to spots. Cosmetics can also trap skin-damaging free radicals which float in the air (such as pollution) against your skin.” A tip that Dr Shirin gives is to take your makeup off as soon as you get home in the evening. “Don’t leave your skincare routine until the final credits of the film at 11pm when you’re tired. Take off your makeup as soon as you get home so that you don’t forget before bed and you give your skin extra time to breathe.”

3. Eat well
Better skin starts within! A diet rich in anti-oxidants has a protective effect on the skin while a diet high in processed food and refined carbohydrates promotes skin aging. For an added boost of vitamins why not try one of our IV drips. Intravenous or IV Nutritional Therapy delivers a specific cocktail of electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream – intravenously through insertion of a cannula into a vein in your arm. Intravita drips are aimed at improving the sense of physical, mental and emotional well-being and optimum health and wellness. They are targeted to support the immune system, as an aid to anti-ageing, for energy enhancement and improved athletic performance as well as improvements in general health.

4. Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Makeup and skin oils build up which in turn create a breeding ground for bacteria which can cause irritation, acne and eye infections. “Wash your brushes with a hypo-allergenic shampoo or body wash and lukewarm water,” says Dr Shirin, “rinse well, squeeze out the excess water and allow the brushes to dry thoroughly.”

5. Invest in your skin’s future

Usually when we make resolutions, we think of the long-term gains – a healthier body or more stable finances, for example – but we tend to forget to apply that to our skin. This year, resolve to take control of your skin’s future. Studies have shown that long-term, regular facial treatments result in more youthful-looking skin for decades. Our Hydrafacial treatment offers a unique, patented 6-step formula to transform your skin. HydraFacial is a hydra dermabrasion facial combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection in a non-invasive process, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. It is designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots. If you want to combine this with a treatment to further target fine lines, try our Hydratight treatment which combines our Hydrafacial with a course of BTL Exilis radiofrequency treatments to tighten and refresh the skin to leave you looking younger.

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Charlotte was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given products that were within my budget.
I was able to pick the products up with an hour, all the safety restrictions where in place and worked very well.
I was very excited to use my new skin care products.
And I was not disappointed, they were amazing and my skin felt amazing too.
I was 100% satisfied with the service I received from the moment I called Elite, every member of staff was friendly and professional.
I am looking forward to attending the clinic to have some treatments very soon.
Thank you ladies for all your help and for making me feel at ease and confident with the viviscal professional products I purchased.


Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. Confidential pictures are taken to review progress which is great. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. (Dermal Fillers Bromley)


Charlotte was great and gave some good advice for my skin! Thank you and will definitely recommend your services now I know where you are :)


A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great clinic, lovely, clean and modern. Charlotte was excellent, knowledgeable about the treatment whilst also friendly. The facial itself was very enjoyable and my skin looks and feels tighter and smoother. I highly recommend the Hydrafacial Treatment.
