What is this Skinade thing? | Théa’s teen skin blog

Hello everyone! I have recently started taking Skinade and I wanted to share the benefits I have discovered. This is a daily vitamin drink that’s either added to water or pre-diluted from a bottle. It is designed to promote healthy skin, nails and hair, as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also increases skin suppleness, hydration and radiance. So overall it helps your skin, hair and nails in countless ways!

So why is Skinade not a tablet? Tablets only have around a 30%-40% absorption rate, whereas Skinade sachets/bottles have a 90%-95% absorption rate. So, one bottle is equivalent to 20 tablets. Being in the form of a drink is also far easier to stomach. It has a lovely tropical and fruity taste, and is obviously far easier to take if you are as bad as I am when it comes to taking tablets!

What is in Skinade?

From one bottle or sachet you get all the nutrients you need for better skin. This includes vitamins B, C, MSM, l-lysine, hydrolysed marine collagen and organic flax seed oil. All in the lovely natural flavour of mangosteen and peach.

How do you take it?

All you need is either a ready-to-drink 150ml bottle or a travel 15ml concentrate sachet, which you add to half a glass of cold water – simple! I use the sachets daily and have really started seeing improvements in my skin and also in my overall health. My immune system has really improved, and I feel a lot healthier overall. Although I am young, I still feel the need to care for my skin with Skinade as it is never too early to care for your skin and prevention is definitely better than cure. So, I couldn’t recommend Skinade any higher – it’s amazing!

Skinade also makes another drink called Skinade Clear which is specifically targeted towards acneic skin. Some of my friends have tried it and it has really helped them along with a new skincare routine!

Can injectables really erase your acne scars?

Can injectables really erase your acne scars?

Acne is the eighth most common disease in the world affecting nearly 10 per cent of the global population and causing scarring in up to 95 per cent of sufferers.  This November, Etre Vous published their must-read guide to the latest advancements and innovations in the use of injectables to treat acne scarring and asked us to comment.

Julie, our clinical director and EV editorial panelist, was keen to point out that acne scarring is not always as it seems.  She explains:

“I get an awful lot of people coming to me for treatment of what they think is acne scarring, but is actually post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.”

Julie also adds:

“Most patients present with more than one type of acne scar, and require more than one type of treatment.  It’s usual for a treatment plan to consist of more than one thing, so starting with an accurate assessment of the types of acne scars is essential.”

Sarah Blakes in-depth article is a definitely a must-read guide.

Teen skin health – it can be tricky!

Hello, I’m Théa and I’m 14. Many of my peers are beginning to think about their skincare, especially sun creams and spots. So I decided to ask my mum, an aesthetic nurse prescriber and skincare expert, about all the DOs and DON’Ts of teen skin. Her answers gave me loads to think about!

Here’s our interview video:

My favourite tips from this were to wear sunscreen every day (which my mum has had me doing every day without fail since I was small!) and to not worry too much about anti-ageing. At this point of my friends and my lives, it’s about protecting our skin. We want to make sure we’re healthy whilst having fun, not worrying too much about the future!

I also like the tip about not picking at spots. It may seem strange because so many of my friends want to pop their spots as soon as they come up. But what they may not realise is that, like my mum said, it can actually create more spots and scarring. I think a lot of my mum’s patients will tell you that pockmarks and hyperpigmentation are not fun to remove in the future.

This was such a great opportunity for me to speak to my mum more about these common concerns. I hope you found the video to be helpful! If there are any other questions you have, please leave them in the comments below.

Meet Théa | Théa’s Teen Skin Blog


My name is Théa; I am 14 years old and the daughter of Julie Scott at Facial Aesthetics. I have been gifted with an amazing mum who can give me a wealth of advice when it comes down to skin, and I would really love to share my journey with you.

In this teen skin blog, I will be reviewing and experiencing different cleansers, masks, facials and much, much more and taking you with me.

Firstly, I will give you a bit of background about me: I adore animals, I have two goats and love horse riding. My favourite subjects are chemistry and biology, which may have a link to my fascination with skin and I have even queried whether I should delve into the industry … or become and equine vet! From a young age of about 11 I started using skin products with the guidance of my mum. She always said prevention is better than cure, and she was right! I truly believe that if I hadn’t cared about my skin then I would be in a very different position now.

If you have any daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, a neighbour or if you yourself are a teen this will be a great place for me to explain to you the fluctuations and variety of teen skin and how you can seek new information and products. This is going to be a adventure of teen skin! So please follow me on my quest… and follow our instagram account @facial_aethetics and I will be giving updates when I upload a new blog!
