We had a record respondents completing the survey during September, 157 individuals, of which 99% were female, and the majority of respondents spread equally between age groups 26 – 65.
It is fantastic to learn that 97% of respondents follow a daily skin are regime: at home skin care maintenance is vital to ensure your skin enjoys the cleanliness, nourishment and exfoliation to support in-clinic treatments for prolonged benefits. In addition, almost ALL respondents believe that “prevention is better than cure” when is comes to good skin care. This is so true – looking after your skin from a young age will not only prevent quicker deterioration, but prolong a youthful and healthy appearance of skin vitality! The majority of patient use a daily cleanser and SPF, which are important to ensure your skin is cleansed properly from daily environmental pollutants, and most importantly protected from the harmful sun!
76% of respondents follow a different skin care routine in the morning and night, which indicates specific products are applied as and when needed.
41% of respondents use a dedicated make-up remover, and 20% only when needed. A dedicated make-up remover is not always needed, as many cleansers will thoroughly remove make-up debris, it is just important that you do ensure all daily make-up is thoroughly removed including foundation, and any eye make-up, without scrubbing or pulling the skin too much, as this can contribute to accelerated ageing of the skin.
64% of respondents use a dedicated SPF product of 50+. This is fantastic, but be sure you check the ingredients to ensure the chemical component of the SPF is not harmful or will cause irritation to the skin. Only 3% of respondents do not use an SPF, and we urge these individuals to invest in a good quality SPF product – especially during the summer months (though SPF should be applied every single day).
