As we work towards being a restriction-free country and with a return to normality well within reach, many of us will be reflecting on the impact the pandemic has had on our lives. For many, it will have taken it’s toll on their physical, mental and emotional health and much needed self care may have taken a back seat.
We at the Dr Tanja Phillips Medical Aesthetic Clinic based in Basingstoke, Hampshire believe that allowing yourself some regular ‘me time’ is an excellent way to improve and maintain physical and mental well-being. So, as life begins to pick up pace again, looking after our skin health is one effective way to take a break, relax and feel good.
Here are our simple suggestions to boost your confidence and unwind…

3. Beauty from the inside out
Swap your morning coffee for a delicious glass of Skinade! This peach flavoured collagen drink delivers essential micronutrients to the skin and rebuilds collagen.
By reducing oxidative stress, preventing cross-linking collagen fibres and increasing hydration, Skinade can combat signs of skin ageing. Skin will be noticeably plumper, more hydrated, texture and tone will be significantly improved and lines and wrinkles reduced.
4. Peeled and pampered
Why not visit our clinic for a ZO Red Carpet Peel? This 45 minute chemical peel facial treatment uses a combination of 3 Alpha Hydroxy Acids to deeply exfoliate the skin and promote cell turnover.
A carefully selected range of ZO Skin Health products will also be used to prep and nourish the skin post treatment.
Skin will look and feel soft and smooth. Blemishes and fine lines will be reduced and youthful radiance restored. You will be glowing on the inside as well as the outside!

- Try to drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet
- Keep moving! Stay active and try to get out in the fresh air regularly
