I think it’s fair to say most people are unsure about their skin types & which products to use.
Knowing your skin type & identifying your most pressing skin concern helps a lot with the selection of the correct products. It will also ensure you see great results with your skincare.
All you need to do is complete a few questions HERE pertaining to your skin and attach a high-resolution photograph of your face & you’ll receive a personal skin product regime from SkinMiles.
I got my recommendations in under 24 hours from Dr Nikolic. He explained that both Retinol & Vitamin C, coupled with the correct moisturisers & exfoliators, are the cornerstones of a good skincare routine.
All my sun damage is on my décolletage & very few topical products help. Dr Nikolic recommended needling to help produce more collagen & strengthen the skin. He also said my best course of action would be a course of IPL done in the winter months. He did say I should continue using Retinol on this area though. He told me he recommends a night moisturiser with either growth factors or Peptides to all his patients once they enter their forties. Reason being these types of formulas stimulate new collagen and elastin production while firming the skin.
Below are the products recommended by Dr Alek Nikolic (NOTE: the beauty tools pictured are IPL & skin needling – these are NOT sold on the skinMiles site & I will be doing both at a dermatologist)
As an exfoliator, he recommended the sk.in avenge glycol 10 (which I’m currently using).
It contains 10% glycolic acid to exfoliate which, in turn, improves skin texture, fine lines and stimulates the production of collagen & elastin fibres in the dermal layer. It also contains Hyaluronic acid to soothe & hydrate the skin. You use it twice weekly at night on clean skin prior to applying your evening skincare. It retails for R795 –BUY

Another product from sk.in I’m using & rate very highly is the avenge HPR-3.
This serum works to Improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines & wrinkles, blemishes & acne. It also minimises enlarged pores & excess sebum production. The formula includes a Peptide to stimulate new collagen and elastin production while firming the skin. Retinoic acid has been included to treat age-related skin concerns, smooth the skin, increases hydration, reduce pigmentation & minimize pore size & sebum production. This serum can be used as a full face & neck treatment or used as a spot treatment. I use it once or twice weekly at night all over my face, neck & décolletage. sk.in avenge HPR-3 can be used on all skin types, but those with very sensitive skin should consult their doctor / derm before using this treatment. It retails for R1150 – BUY
