THE SKIN’S LAYERS

Being the largest organ of the body, our skin is our human shield that protects us from microbes and other elements, regulates body temperature, permits our senses in regard to touch, heat and the cold. Whilst its important role is to protect the human body it is our job to protect, treat and nourish it effectively.

The skin is made up of three layers, there is the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis (also known as the subcutaneous tissue). The Epidermis is what we all see, it is the outermost layer of the skin and provides protection, a waterproof barrier and even creates our skin tone by producing the pigment we otherwise know as melanin (melanocytes are located in the epidermis). Beneath the epidermis sits the dermis which contains connective tissues, hair follicles and our sweat glands which then is met by the hypodermis (the deepest layer of the skin) that is primarily made up of fat as well as connective tissues and blood vessels.

In order to truly look after our skin, paying attention to these three layers through our skincare and diet is important for optimising our skin’s overall health.

Sub-Zero De-Puffing Face Mask From 111SKIN

TREATING THE EPIDERMIS

The outermost surface of the skin takes the brunt of abuse from external elements, pollutants and even our skincare. Working with a robust skincare routine that includes cleansing, toning, treating and moisturising, it will help to balance the skin from the outside in. Whilst there are many skin concerns and types, treating your skin accordingly is important and that can be done through serums, oils and masks. Facial masks in particular are both a quick and effective way to look after the skin. Our collection of facial masks deliver pioneering ingredients to the epidermis to nourish, brighten and soothe the complexion.

Our Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Facial Mask ( part of the Reparative collection) is designed to strengthen, nourish and heal the skin, for those that experience irritation or inflammation, the healing power of NAC, antioxidants and glutathione work to restore the skin back to health. Our Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask is a cult classic for those that require a natural radiance, formulated to illuminate, brighten and soothe with ingredients such as rose damask and 24 carat gold. Ideal for when the skin is feeling tired, puffy or lacklustre, the Sub-Zero De-Puffing Energy Facial Mask is designed with drainage stimulating and cooling ingredients such as caffeine and dawnergy to inject life back into the skin. Our Celestial Black Diamond Lifting and Firming Mask is part of our most potent anti-ageing collection that draws upon contouring, firming and lifting the skin. Each individual mask that is delivered within the Facial Edit will target and treat your skin to clinically inspired ingredients and formulations that will help to deliver the best look and feel for the skin.

TREATING THE DERMIS AND HYPODERMIS

Taking your skincare further, by enhancing and elevating your routine is important if you want to treat and target the dermis. As the secondary layer, it can be easy for the dermis to not receive the treatments it deserves and this is where your skincare tools come in handy. Designed to stimulate blood flow, encourage lymphatic drainage, drain the toxins and sculpt the facial muscles, applying a facial massager over your serums, oils or masks will help to push and penetrate the ingredients further into the skin. How you would do this is by:

Face Rollers from Joanna Czech

STEP 1

Starting from the centre of the chin place your jawbone between each roller and roll up to just below your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 2

Starting from the centre of your mouth place your lips between each roller and roll up to the middle of your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 3

Starting from your nose place roll up from under your cheekbones to the top of your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 4

Starting from the inside of your eyebrow place your brow bone between each roller and roll along your eyebrow. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 5

Starting from the centre of your forehead and roll up to 1" into the hairline. Add 2–3 more sections to cover full forehead. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 6

Starting at your clavicle roll up to the back of your ear. Add 2–3 more sections to cover neck muscle, but do not massage the centre of your throat.

Performing the ‘Czeched’ Massage which has been curated by world class aesthetician and facialist to the stars, Joanna Czech, with the use of her facial roller means that the skin is then treated at several layers. Targeting the epidermis, fascia and subcutaneous tissue, the skin is truly being transformed and treated at every level. Combining the physical and the topical, the skin is then perfectly targeted with extraordinary aesthetic results.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
