Constance is warm and friendly – she puts you at ease as soon as you walk through the door. And when it comes to skin health, she really knows her stuff! She’s incredibly knowledgeable about the products we should be using (and avoiding) for optimal skin health, as well as the role of nutrition, lifestyle and internal supplements. Over the last couple of months I’ve switched to botanical skincare (and got rid of products with comedogenic ingredients) and upped my omega 3 and zinc levels. My skin feels amazing so far and I can’t wait to continue my journey with Constance, she really is one of a kind.”

Laura Tuck

Constance transformed my skin from being dehydrated, red and acne-prone to clear, healthy, acne-free and radiant. I can’t recommend her and her Roccoco products enough. I wouldn’t trust anyone else!

Briar Yates

My daughter has been on an amazing skin journey with Constance after she was recommended to us for treatment of acne. Constance was very honest in her approach and the commitment required (both in-clinic and at home), which we appreciated. I can safely say my daughter’s skin looks amazing - Constance helped get her confidence back and she now very rarely wears makeup! I also see Constance for my own skin, and she approaches mature skin the same way. I highly recommend Constance for quality care, service and products.

Tania Williamson

Constance is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She has an amazing understanding of how to look after your skin both inside and out - my skin has never been better, and I feel very confident without any makeup now! Constance genuinely cares about her clients. She’s warm, kind and extremely reliable. Thank you for looking after me so well over the last few years!

Jemma McLoughlin

I’ve been seeing Constance for over a year now for regular skin care. She takes time to evaluate my skin at each session and skillfully manages any problems that arise. I love her facial technique – it’s incredibly relaxing and I always leave feeling totally pampered and rejuvenated.

Transformation Wednesday 🤩 ⁠

Trust - the - process! We understand how easy it is to feel disheartened about the clearance of your acne! This particular client “purged” for a long time, and her purging, as you can see, moved around in different areas of her skin as her skin healed and pushed out all that congestion. We, however, got her over the line, and now she’s managing her acne-prone skin.⁠

What you can do to manage the purge⁠ ~⁠

1️⃣ Book in for some HEALITE sessions to aid in healthy healing⁠

2️⃣ Give yourself some home facials (with acne-safe products, of course as we don’t want to encourage more acne)⁠

3️⃣ Stop all comedogenic products⁠

4️⃣ Be consistent with your homecare⁠

As we always say, no quick fixes but actual healing from the inside out! 🤍⁠

Yes, acne skin can use an oil cleanser! 😮⁠

The key is that those oil cleansers contain no pore-clogging or barrier disruptive oils.⁠

❌ For example, olive oil is high in inflammatory oleic acid which is barrier disruptive and coconut oil is a pore-clogging ingredient and should not go onto the skin if you are acne-prone ⁠

Our Fav oil cleansers are ~⁠

⭐ Roccoco Ruby Crystal cleanser⁠

⭐ Roccoco Pore Cleansing oil⁠

⭐ Roccoco Soothing Cleansing oil⁠

You can find these on our website or you can just click on them in the photo and you can access the online shop! ⁠

Before & After peel-glow 🤩⁠

The bottom is our before and the top is after the Alpharet peel. This peel will gently shift surface skin cells and it also contains conjugated retinol which will create amazing vit A penetration without the irritation!⁠

This peel is amazing for age-related skin concerns including ~⁠
➕ photodamage⁠
➕ fine lines⁠
➕ wrinkles⁠
➕ uneven skin tone⁠
➕ dullness⁠

#alpharetpeel #skinbetter #glowingskin ⁠
...

Skin peels have changed A LOT in the beauty/skin industry, back in the day they were all about stripping back and removing “dead” skin. ⁠

The thing is we found that the “dead skin” was not actually dead and was actually needed for cell communication and for skin barrier function, and what we were doing was stripping away at very much needed parts of the skin without any rebuilding and quite frankly we were not caring for skin integrity. Sometimes leading to skin sensitivity 🥴⁠

⭐ At Epidermis + Sage we have many amazing peels in our back bar, all of our peels have other ingredients in them to target certain skin concerns. We may add a peel into a skin program or offer a peel in with a skin service. We never over peel the skin, anyone who has a peel with us will also be on our skincare so we know how the skin will respond.⁠

Our peels treat pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, they can help in calming a fungal acne breakout and more! We love them for a skin reset or a glow-up of the skin 💫⁠

Winter treatments we love! ❄️⁠

Some skin services are more suited to the winter season due to the nature of the sun and how it can undo some of our treatment if clients are not careful. These are 3 of our most popular skin treatments during those winter months 👇🏼⁠

⭐ Skin better Alpharet peel – we never endorse winter as peel season; however, we like to perform this service in low UV times due to the retinoid in this peel. This peel not only gently shifts surface skin cells it also contains conjugated retinol, what this means is that the SBS has cleverly teamed retinol up with AHA’s for amazing vit A penetration without the irritation. Vit A is great for all your age-related skin concerns including photodamage, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and dullness. This peel will make your skin glow! 😍⁠

⭐ HEALITE Mini facial – want that quick skin boost in a short space of time? Our HEALITE mini facial includes a gentle skin exfoliation, serum application and 20min under the glorious HEALITE. Skin cells are woken up and you will be feeling like you’ve just laid in the sun (but without the damage)⁠

⭐ Exceed medical micro-needling – We tend to perform more needling in the wintertime due to the UV being really detrimental to new baby collagen. Winter is the best time to really put focus on undoing some of that damage done by the summer gone. Skin needling targets pigmentation, fine line and wrinkles, pore size and scarring, we see needling as a really great skin re-set and a treatment that can do so much 💫⁠

If you have any questions about any of these treatments just flick us a message! We happy to help 🤍⁠

This before & after is absolutely unreal... these photos are only 8 weeks apart and the new @skinbetter Techno Neck Perfecting Cream is showing its magic!⁠

Why we love ❤️ Vitamin A!⁠

Vit A topically on the skin is important for skin health, we see it as a powerhouse for the skin. It is a topical skin ingredient that is capable of so much! ⁠

➕ It normalises cell function⁠
➕ It encourages natural exfoliation⁠
➕ It evens out skin tone⁠
➕ Acne sufferers are quite often deficient in Vit a, using it topically aids in the treatment of acne⁠
➕ It stimulates collagen + elastin⁠
➕ It's skin healing⁠

We want to tell you that it DOES make a difference to the form of Vit A you use, there are prescribed versions that act more like a peel on the surface of the skin (these cause inflammation and skin thinning). You will only get a very minimal amount of the active ingredient into the skin. We know you like that smooth shiny skin the morning after using prescriptive Vit a, this is just skin inflammation... it is not a good thing as it will age your skin quickly.⁠

Vit A product should~⁠

✅ Be safe to wear all year round⁠

✅ They should not irritate or thin the skin⁠

✅ Be safe for the most sensitive skins⁠

✅ Have amazing penetration technology, so they get to where they need to go⁠

✅ Contain other skin-loving ingredients⁠

Our Fav Vit A products Skinbetter Science Alpharet Overnight Cream, Intensive Alpharet Overnight Cream, Alpharet Clearing serum, Osmosis Renew, Correct and Calm 😍⁠
