Wedding Season 2015 Continued

Wedding Bells

As promised we have the latest updates from Jordanne's wedding preparations and most importantly what skincare regime and treatments she has been using ahead of her big day in just three weeks time.

When we last spoke with Jordanne she had three months to go until her wedding and was beginning to have treatments and stepping up her skincare regime after suffering from an acne breakout at the age of 26. Believe it or not adult acne is extremely common with 50% of women suffering. With now only three weeks to go until the wedding we have caught up with Jordanne on what treatments she has had and how the plans are going.

"Jordanne, the 29th August is fast approaching. Do you feel organised and what is left to do?"

The wedding plans are going well. It's funny I was just saying the other day how people always say 'it will feel like your wedding is ages away and then all of a sudden the last couple of months fly by' and that is exactly what has happened. We had the final bridesmaid fitting last Saturday and we pick all the dresses up this weekend which is very exciting. Our main jobs left to do are finalising all the small details such as order of service, seating plan, timings for the day etc.

"You seem like you have it all under control. How has your skin been and what treatments have you had?"

My skin feels great at the moment. I have noticed a huge improvement to how it was 18 months ago. My family and friends are all noticing and commenting on how good it is looking. We stepped up the treatments and my skincare regime about two months ago to allow ample time to notice a change prior to my wedding.

Epionce Peel System

I have regularly been having Epionce peels to keep my oil under control. I have extremely oily skin, hence why I suffer with acne. The Epionce peel system is formulated to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by increasing cell turnover, this helps to alleviate skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. I have found the skin peels, along with Microdermabrasion are brilliant for me as there is very little discomfort and hardly any downtime, you may just be left a little pink for that evening.

IPL Photorejuvenation

A treatment which Dr Allan and Dr Patterson have recommended for me is what is known as the Fotopeel, this treatment is a combination of IPL Photorejuvenation alongside an Epionce peel. Photorejuvenation is a great treatment to reduce facial redness, something which as an acne sufferer I have a lot of. The acne along with the redness makes the skin look very sore and inflamed. I have had three treatments along with Epionce peels and it has made a huge difference, the redness has now gone and I am just left with a few small acne scars and blemishes.

Skincare Regime

Alongside the treatments I have been very strict with my skincare regime. Gone are the days when I used to sleep in my make-up or when I did take my make-up off I would just use a face wipe. I have been using Epionce products for about nine months now and I would never use anything else. I use the system for oily/combination skin which is Lytic Gel Cleanser, Lytic Sport, Purifying Toner and Renewal Lite Facial Lotion. I make sure every night I take my make-up off with these products before bed. I also always make sure I cleanse and moisturise in the the morning. To begin with it is hard but you have to be strict with yourself and get into the habit, once you notice and feel the difference you will be amazed and it is now just part of my daily routine.

Eight months ago I would never go anywhere without a full face of make-up, I was using concealer, a liquid foundation and camouflage foundation on top to try and hide my bad skin. I didn't realise at the time that these products were actually making my skin look and feel worse. I have now moved onto Colorescience mineral make-up and I love it. I have saved myself about 10 minutes in the morning from using less make-up and my skin looks so much better, I now have a much more natural look.

Now feeling much more confident about her skin Jordanne has been brave enough to BARE ALL and share a before and after photo of her skin and how the treatments and products have made a significant difference:
