“I use Skin Essentials by Mariga products. My routine is as follows: I rinse my face with a micro fibre cloth and apply their Hydra Collagen Serum, followed by the Advanced Protection Day Cream SPF30. In the evening I use the Skin Comfort Cleanser, then apply the Age Slowly Serum, and 1 pump of the Lipid Repair Concentrate – and finally the Skin Comfort Cream

Does your face look younger than your neck?

Does your face look younger than your neck?

If so, you are definitely not alone.

We get many inquiries at our Wexford Town Skin Clinic as to what can be done for neck rejuvenation.

I think that there are a couple of main reasons so many people are having this issue:

  • Gravity vs Technology.
  • Botox/Fillers in the face.

Seeing this screen grab of Sonia O’Sullivan on TV recently inspired this post!

Up to now there has not been much on the market to combat the effects of gravity on the jowl area, under the chin and sides of the neck. This is where looseness appears first and it used to be practically impossible to correct without surgery.

Thankfully we now have non-surgical technology that can have a huge and lasting impact on the skin of the neck. From a gentle tweak on the first signs of ‘slippage’ using TriPollar radio frequency and DMA jawline lifting, to intensive correction using a blend of TriPollar and Pyramid Facelift technology we can create the perfect package for your needs and achieve visible, lasting results without surgery. 

The same techniques and technology apply to those who have noticed that anti-wrinkle and filler injections in the face have begun to leave them with a noticeable discrepancy between the age appearance of their face and their neck.

It is painful, costly and not always do-able to extend these treatments to the neck area so TriPollar and DMA is a fantastic option now available.

Remember, Skin Essentials by Mariga is the first in Ireland with this technology and you will not get this anywhere else in Wexford.

Declutter your skincare routine

Learn how to de-clutter your daily skincare routine with these 3 quick tips.

I often hear the excuse, “I don’t have time to do a full skincare routine”, when I first meet a new client.

Now, I’m not sure how long people think you have to spend on your skincare routine but I promise it’s something everyone can fit in, no matter how busy your schedule!

If it is taking you longer than 2 minutes in the morning or 5 minutes at night (assuming you wear makeup) then I really don’t know what you are doing – someone let me know, I’m curious!

Yes, I am aware of the trend for multi-step Korean type skincare routines and if you have lots of time and truly enjoy your skin routine then by all means spend as much time as you like – it can be quite a relaxing time in your day.

But if you are like most of the people I meet then you want an effective routine – fast!

Here are 3 things that you can de-clutter from your skincare routine to give you a faster application time, or more time to spend on the steps that really count:

1. Ditch the eye cream.

Use your regular serum/cream around the eye contour area. There is absolutely no need for a separate product here, skin is skin with the same nutritional requirements no matter where on your face it is located.

Dark circles or puffy eyes to contend with? Topical application of any cream will have little to no effect on these conditions.

2. Ditch the toner.

Again, there is no need for this step unless you enjoy it. Toners were originally used to remove cleanser residue.

All good cleansers are now formulated to be water soluble. If you do like the feeling of using a toner choose one that is alcohol and fragrance free.

3. Ditch the daily exfoliation.

I have written so many blogs and made so many videos on this subject that there really is no need to go into detail here. I am horrified that people still do this.

Respect your skin, don’t stress it,  it has to last you a lifetime!

Great celeb skincare mention in Chic Magazine

The new celeb skincare favourite is our exclusive treatment – The Pyramid Facelift, and it’s causing quite the stir!

On Saturday, 15th Sept, we had a great surprise reading Chic Magazine in the Irish Daily Star.

We received another glowing mention from the well-known model and lifestyle guru, Vivienne Connolly.

Read Vivienne’s Chic interview here:

“When it comes to your beauty regime, obviously you can see changes in your skin as you get older which is caused by the fact you’re not producing as much collagen…”

“I use Skin Essentials by Mariga, she’s from Wexford, she recently gave me a non-invasive facelift before my holidays.

It’s not about cutting your face but stimulating your own natural collagen, although your face is red afterwards and you have to stay out of the sun for a few days.

I use her collagen serum in the morning and at night I use the Age Slowely Serum and Lipid Repair Concentrate, then I put a layer of deep moisturiser. 

When I started using them, I told Margia: ‘my skin doesn’t feel soft and lovely like it does with my own moisutriser’, and she said: ‘That’s because the cream you were using was wrong, it just sat there on top of your skin and didn’t do anything’, and I have noticed a big change in my skin since I started using her products.”

Celebrity treatments: What does Norma Sheahan use?

“The Beauty Product

Mariga Sheedy is the best skin expert in Ireland. She’ll design a skincare programme that is unique to your needs. Her products are magic. She has done amazing non-invasive, anti-aging treatments on me.” – Norma Sheahan.

Sunday Independent 9/11/2018

So many of you have reached out to us this week after seeing the interview with Irish A-list actor and beautiful person Norma Sheahan in the Sunday Independent magazine.

The big questions have been around what treatments has she had and what products is she using so I thought that a blog post covering these might be of interest.

Before I detail Norma’s journey with Skin Essentials I would like to thank Norma for her kindness in publicly recommending Skin Essentials and assure everyone that all details and photos of Norma’s skincare journey are being reproduced with her permission!

Norma has very generously allowed me to photograph and record her progress to share with our clients. But of course in general all your interactions with Skin Essentials by Mariga are kept in complete confidence, unless you choose to share your results yourself – and a heartfelt thank you to those who do, it really helps others to make the right choice when looking for skincare services and products.

So, to Norma’s skincare diary:

As Skin Essentials by Mariga’s core ethos is natural, non-invasive yet visible results on anti-ageing this fitted perfectly with Norma’s preference for a healthy, youthful look, achieved by encouraging and supporting the skin to perform as it did in youth, without resorting to injectables or other invasive procedures.

The aim was to look like the freshest, rested, most radiant version of herself while retaining a completely natural look.

As with all corrective skincare programmes, we began with homecare to restore health, balance and integrity to the skin. This is a crucial step in any long-term results-driven anti-ageing programme. Without giving your skin all the ingredients it needs to fuel optimum collagen production, the results obtained from advanced facial treatments will not ‘take’ as deeply or last as long.

Once the skin was being properly supported on a daily basis with collagen-boosting and integrity-building ingredients we were able to begin clinical treatments to tighten, contour and refine the skin.

We chose the Pyramid Facelift for Norma’s treatments. This combines three technologies in one intensive  session to target the three main areas of skin ageing:

  1. TriPollar Radiofrequency to contract existing collagen fibres giving a smoothing and lifting effect while also stimulating new collagen growth.
  2. TrFractional Radiofrequency to resurface the skin, giving a beautiful soft smooth texture by refining pores, decreasing wrinkle depth, tightening jawline and eye area contours and smoothing out any areas of old scarring or bumpy texture.
  3. Voluderm for a natural filler effect to increase facial volume in areas that might be getting a little hollow or flat such as cheeks, mouth or under-eyes.

These technologies can be used alone where only one is needed, or combined to address all signs of ageing in one. As we have many clients that travel long distances to our Wexford Town skin clinic we find that the combination of the three technologies together – the Pyramid Facelift – is the most popular as it means maximum results in the fewest visits.

Results will be seen from the first  session and the number of sessions required for each individual will be determined at the first consultation.

Generally speaking for a freshening of the appearance on skin that has only just begun to show faint line lines, texture changes or the first sagging of jawline or eye contours one to two treatments will be enough.

Where these visual signs of ageing have taken a deeper hold you would need to have three treatments and for deep revision we recommend six. Each is taken on average 3 weeks apart.

For Norma we decided to go with three treatments. I think a picture will say far more than words to show clearly the rejuvenation achieved!

These results will last several years when maintained correctly with daily home-care and occasional top-up single treatments (again, top-up frequency will be determined on a case-by-case basis but most people will return for a single top up treatment every 6-12 months.

Top Three Tips to combat dull skin

Pic of lemon on a white background with the text dull skin, our lemon facial will bring your sparkle back, skin essentials by mariga logo

 

Dull skin can be so ageing, even more so than visible wrinkles at times. It can happen to any skin type at any age, and is very common when the seasons change, and the frustrations usually are:

-Feeling like you look tired, drawn or even sick.

-Makeup patches and rolls and ends up making you look worse instead of better.

-Lines appear around your eyes/mouth and at the tops of your cheeks.

Does that sound like you? Don’t worry, we can help. If your skin is dull, devitalised and dehydrated temporarily due to being recently sick, just not keeping a good lifestyle or diet for a while or maybe just a temporary adjustment as the seasons change, then below are my top three things to get your skin looking bright, radiant and healthy-looking quickly. (If there is any other reason such as long-term illness or medication, ongoing conditions such as rosacea then it is better to have a full Skin Analysis to determine the best course of action for long-term management).

Quick fixes to a short-term problem 

  1. The Home Treatment – Enzyme Exfoliation. For a quick pick-me-up our Enzymatic Exfoliation Powder is the one product you want to have on hand. Simply apply 3-4 pumps to clean, dry skin, wait 10 minutes and rinse off with water to reveal bright, radiant skin. Use once a week until skin is back to it’s best.
  2. The Clinical Treatment – Classic Facial. Our bespoke facials come in 30, 45 or 60 minute versions. Each one is customised exactly to your needs on the day and will banish dull, patchy skin fast! Available to book Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday by calling us on 053 9145981 or use our online booking service. Just choose the length of time and budget that suits you best and we will do the rest in our Wexford Town skin clinic. Highly Recommended – ask about our skin boosting lemon anti-oxidant facial.
  3. The Emergency Fix. Last minute socialising? No time for a facial and out of your Enzyme Exfoliator right before a night out? Soak clean facecloths in cold water, squeeze out and pop in the fridge for 20 minutes to cool further. Apply to your face in turn for 10 minutes total (change them out when they warm up on the skin, usually 2-3 minutes each). This will give you a quick glow that will last a couple of hours!

Meghan Markle Has Pyramid Facelift Treatments

Does Duchess of Sussex and wife to Prince Harry Meghan Markle have Pyramid Facelift Treatments?

Celebrity plastic surgeon Mr. Gary Ross, says she has!

Commenting in UK celebrity magazine Reveal on how ageless Meghan’s skin looks he says “Non-invasive tightening treatments like the Pyramid Facelift could also explain her smooth, almost ageless skin.

As a Royal, Meghan needs to maintain natural beauty, so is unlikely to do anything drastic now.”

Meghan Markle pyramid facelift, Is Meghan Markle's ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments? Get this royal treatment exclusively in Ireland from Skin Essentials by Mariga, Wexford

Is Meghan Markle’s ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments?

I would agree that to maintain natural beauty and youthful skin so that you never have to go down the invasive route, these treatments are absolutely perfect. From gentle skin tightening treatments to deep anti-wrinkle results the Pyramid Facelift and Divine Pro technology can be customised to every anti-ageing need.

Best of all, it’s completely natural.

For a young skin like Meghan’s I would recommend a single treatment once or twice a year as a preventative measure to make sure that collagen production is kept at optimum levels. For older skin already needing correction courses of 3-6 treatments are best.

Of course, homecare is a vital step in ageless skin and you must maintain your results with great skincare products daily. Our therapists will be happy to guide you in making the best choices for your skin.

If you are thinking of following in Meghan’s footsteps and maintaining / regaining your youthful skin the natural way then we advise booking in for our free Divine Pro consultation with one of our skin experts in our Wexford Town Clinic.

The Pyramid Facelift is exclusive to Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford, we brought this technology to Ireland. You don’t have to be Meghan Markle to access top of the range treatments like the Pyramid Facelift, all our clients get the royal treatment😀
