Flawless Skin – Tips for a Radiant, Glowing Complexion

Forget highlighters and contouring, if you’re truly looking for glowing, flawless skin you need to ensure that your skin is the number one priority – not countless cosmetics that only serve as a quick fix to hide imperfections. What you want is healthy, radiant looking skin on a permanent basis and there are some great treatments and products to help you find it.

Here are five of my favourites….


For skin that really glows you need to exfoliate regularly to slough away the dead skin cells. This anti-ageing treatment takes it up a notch with Microdermabrasion, a deep, mechanical exfoliation to resurface your skin and stimulate faster skin cell renewal. It also includes LED light therapy and an Anti-Ageing Collagen Mask Treatment with DNA Repair. It’s the ultimate in combination facial treatments for plumper, smoother, healthier looking skin and tailored to your needs so you get the best results.


This is an amazing rejuvenating treatment that uses light-based technology to target a wide range of skin conditions including pigmentation, sun damage, enlarged pores, redness and rosacea, uneven skin tone, texture and reduction in collagen production. It’s a celeb favourite (Jennifer Aniston and Victoria Beckham are both fans) and it’s one of my go-to treatments, especially as Zen have the latest state-of-the-art Ellipse machines with advanced computer controlled filters to ensure maximum results in minimal time.


We now stock a new clinical skincare range called Priori and it’s truly fabulous. Carefully formulated using the latest technology to recognise skin individuality, the cosmeceutical products give our skin exactly what it needs (replenishment, hydration, protection), when it needs. Try the PRIORI® Active Cleanser Q+SOD fx210 to target and wash away impurities, nourish and protect the skin. I’m also a big fan of the Eye Crème and Brightening Serum.


This is a non-laser micro needling system designed to help the skin produce new collagen and it’s incredibly effective for anyone with acne scars and sun damage as the micro-needles help skin repair and renew. The procedure is carried out by specially trained therapists at Zen and they use a topical anaesthetic cream to numb any discomfort, allowing the needles to go anywhere between 0.5 and 2.5 millimetres deep into the superficial layer of skin.  Afterwards, skin can be a little pink but this quickly fades to leave a youthful, radiant glow.


You need to build up this level of advanced peel/treatment but our therapists will always advise what is best for your skin concerns. If this is suitable for you, it’s a great indulgent treatment to rejuvenate skin, improve elasticity, texture, tone and clarity. It includes an advanced peel and replenishing mask and it delivers seriously good results.
