LAYERS SKIN CLINIC – UNCOVER PERFECTION

I believe your eyes are the windows to the soul and the first thing people notice when they talk to you. Your skin comes second. Its condition can have such a profound psychological effect on you – from struggling with teenage acne to dealing with mature skin. I see beauty in all and it’s my mission to bring it forth.

Helping and serving people is my passion! Since I was a little girl living on the farm, I pampered my mom and sister with “facials”, “manis” and “pedis”. Even the boys had a turn! So it was only natural that I ended up studying skincare at Isa Carstens in Stellenbosch. But even back then I didn’t think I would love skincare as much as I do today!

ABOUT NICOLA

After completing my three-year training at the academy, including various international qualifications, I started my skincare career at a laser clinic, while also working with a plastic surgeon. It was always my dream to have my own skincare clinic, so after a few years of gaining valuable experience, I started Layers Skin Clinic.

My passion for this industry means that I constantly strive to learn more about skincare, so I can share this knowledge with my clients and make them understand why I recommend certain products. Regardless of age, colour or gender, people seek flawless skin. And that is my goal: to help my clients achieve their perfect complexion.

I strongly believe that what you put into your body should be as good as what you put onto your skin. This combination will ensure optimum results and an improved you. During a consultation, I consider all the information and do an advance skin analysis of the texture, colour and secretions of your skin.

I can then advise you on the best maintenance programme for you as an individual. I believe my profession is about so much more than delivering excellent service. It’s about empowering my clients to make better choices. Proper skincare is not a luxury, but a necessity. Allow me to be your personal assistant on your skincare journey.

  • Black Head Black Friday⚫️ // Let's clear out the blockage⠀
⠀
Do you struggle to keep those constant black heads away?⠀
⠀
Blackhead aka comedones are formed due to open pores that are clogged by dead skin cells and sebum. The blocked pore reacts with oxygen in the air, causing it to turn black.⠀
⠀
One misconception is that blackheads are dirt in your pores. Blackheads have nothing to do with dirt. When your skin's natural cell turnover process is sluggish, your pores collect a backlog of oil and dead skin cells.
⠀
Just remember, that you may not be able to completely rid your skin of comedones, but you can refine your pore size to minimize the appearance of them. ⠀
This is why I would suggest using a retinoid to help increase the cell turnover rate, keeping your pores clear.⠀
Happy weekend 🌿

  • About Nicola // "My mom always taught me one thing. If a man looks after his hands he will definitely look after you.⠀
⠀
First impressions usually last, and hands can be the way to project that. We greet each other by hand gesture and shaking. Think about it... shaking hands with someone is often your first point of contact with them.⠀
⠀
Hand grooming - this is a small detail,that we all should actually pay attention to. ⠀

  • Whats New (s) // LUNA 2 mini ⠀
⠀
Customise your cleansing experience. ⠀
⠀
Do you ever feel like your cleanser just doesn't clean your skin enough and you need something more? Something that removes all the dirt and impurities? However, over cleansing with the wrong cleanser can do more harm to your skin than good. So what do you do?⠀
⠀
This is when I discovered the LUNA 2.⠀
⠀
LUNA 2 is a unisex cleansing tool suitable for all skin types. It drives away dead skin cells and unclogs 99.5% of pores from dirt and oil aka make up. ⠀
⠀
And unlike other cleansing devices with bristles that require excess sterilisation and transfer bacteria onto your skin, the LUNA 2 is made from an ultra-hygienic silicone that is nonporous and resist bacteria buildup. Preventing transfer of bacteria (??) and making your skin glow. ⠀
⠀
For more info on this product please email me.⠀

  • Saturday skincare tip // ⠀
Remember Sun burn fades but Sun Damages last.⠀
⠀
Even on cloud covered days UVA rays damage to your skin is still the same. So wear you SPF daily even when in door or out doors.⠀
⠀
Our darken skin types skin will even darken with SPF applied because of the type of melanin by just daily exposure but it is the damage that you want to avoid.⠀
Our lighter skin type are less fortunate and our damage is obtained quicker.⠀
⠀
So look after your skin - you would regret the good choices you make today.⠀

  • Men's Health // Movember 
Skincare / Skin health should be as important to men as it is to women.

As November is the month to bring awareness to men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. I think we should also bring awareness to skin health as men actually have a higher rate of skin cancer than women. 
When it comes to the skin, men have thicker, more oily skins with larger pores. 
So cleansing it properly should be essential to avoid build up of dead skin cells, clogging of pores and to make sure you remove the dirt and impurities off the skin.

For all men suffering from beard ingrown hair aka 
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae.

I recommended the Luna 2 - 3-In-1 Facial Scrub Brush, Pre-Shaving& Anti-Aging Device.

Easy to use and resulting in your razor blades to last twice as long. For more info please contact me.  #movember #menskincare #skincaretip #awareness #testicularcancer #prostatecancer #skincancer #skinhealth #layersskin #foreo #luna2 #folliculitis
