Skincare
Supplements

Choose the right skincare supplements and they will work from the inside-out to help boost collagen, elastin and hydration in your skin. These are some of my favourites, all of which have clinical studies behind them to prove how well they work.

Altrient-C Liposomal Vitamin C

This is the form of vitamin C that I trialled for a story for the Times newspaper last year, with such impressive results. I saw improvements in the collagen levels (up 22.8%), hydration (up 30.2%) and elasticity (up 64.3%) in my skin.  There’s a link to the story on my blog, here.

Home Use
Devices

The latest home-use devices offer toned-down versions of the same technology - the lasers, the radiofrequency or the electrical microcurrents - that you find in clinical treatments. Here are my favourites. Use them consistently, and they could be your new beauty best friend.

CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask

I love light therapy masks, and this is my current favourite. Its LED bulbs deliver red light along with infrared light which works to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. It sounds a bit unlikely – until you look into ‘photobiomodulation’. That’s the technical name for low-level light therapy, the sort that doesn’t generate heat in the skin, and it is well-proven to encourage the skin to remodel itself from the inside out. That means improving the hydration of the skin, stimulating the growth of new supportive collagen and elastin, and bringing down inflammation, which helps to reduce the angry redness in both spots and rosacea.

Obviously, the power output of this home-use mask isn’t as high as you’d get from a professional-quality light canopy in a salon, but if you wear it for 10 minutes five times a week, you will start to see results after a few weeks. What sort of results? Firmer, smoother, tighter skin, according to people who have tried it. And from the clinical trials that the product boasts, the product achieved a 35 per cent reduction in wrinkles in four weeks.

As well as these benefits, I love the fact that this mask is flexible. That means it lies flat and is easy to pack for travelling. It also has a portable power-pack, meaning that you’re not tethered to the nearest electrical socket while you’re wearing it. I haven’t yet opened the door to the postman while wearing it, but it’s surely only a matter of time.

There is a limited number of these masks available at a £50 discount through The Tweakments Guide: just use the code ALICE50 at checkout

NIRA Skincare Laser

The NIRA Skincare Laser uses non-fractional lasers to heat up the lower layer of your skin (the dermis). It does this without damaging the top layer (the epidermis) and stimulates the production of collagen. The result: plumper and younger looking skin without the redness or irritation you get with other devices that target the epidermis, such as fractional lasers.

MZ Skin Light Therapy Treatment Mask

This solid shield of a mask is covered all over the inside with LED lights which emit red (collagen boosting, anti-inflammatory), or blue (acne-busting), or clear near infra-red (regenerating and calming) or green light (to reduce pigmentation) or even red and blue light together. The countdown timer offers a 20-minute session as a default, but you can change this as you like.
