Vitamin C & Sun Awareness

The sun is shining and so are you! As everyone gets ready to make the most of each and every time the sun shows itself this summer, we’re thinking about skin preparation and protection for the season ahead. Vitamin C provides a variety of skincare benefits, but did you know that it also helps to protect your skin from UV damage and can boost the effectiveness of your SPF? We outline below why Vitamin C is our must have accessory this sunny season.

What does Vitamin C do?

Often hailed as one of the best ingredients on the market, Vitamin C is the key to maintaining a healthy glowing complexion. With antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties, it reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration. If dull or lacklustre skin is your concern, Vitamin C is the solution. It works to brighten thanks to its ability to inhibit melanin production which gives our skin pigment, meaning that through daily use you will start to notice a brighter, lighter complexion along with fading of existing dark spots.

Vitamin C + Sunscreen = Double Protection

Whether you’re jetting-off on a summer holiday or simply setting up your deck chair in the back garden, SPF should always be your first choice of companion. But why should you combine SPF and Vitamin C?

Oxidative stress occurs when the skin is exposed to pollutants and environmental aggressors, such as UV rays. This stress can cause lines and wrinkles to form, as electrons attack healthy cells and change their structure. When you layer them together, your Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to combat oxidative stress and give your skin extra UV protection benefits alongside your normal SPF. In return, sun cream helps to prevent your Vitamin C from oxidising, making it more effective. Ultimately, combining the two will combat sun damage, protect the skins condition and slow the ageing process.

So how do you incorporate Vitamin C into your skincare routine?

Vitamin C is suitable for daily use and should be applied in the morning after washing your face. A little goes a long way so you only need a few drops. Once you have rubbed in your Vitamin C you can then apply your moisturiser. Follow this up with your sun cream and you’re good to go!

The popularity of Vitamin C is both a blessing and a curse as it makes it hard to know which products work and which don’t. We have several different Vitamin C serums and creams depending on your skin type, so just ask your practitioner which one will deliver the best results for you.

And what Sunscreen should you use?

When deciding on a sun cream, it’s important to opt for a broad-spectrum formula as this will provide defence against both UVB and UVA rays. It should also be at least SPF 30, however if you have fair skin or know you will be spending a significant amount of time in the sun we would always recommend SPF 50.

We have a wide range of sun protection products available at the clinic and what our practitioners recommend varies depending on your skin and your goals. Our selection of sunscreens come in multiple formulations to suit all skin types and lifestyles, so just ask your practitioner what they would suggest for your skin during your appointment.

Add a one hit wonder to your Hydrafacial with us

Looking for a quick Vitamin C fix? We have a new addition to our Hydrafacial booster selection – The Vita-C Booster!

It’s Time To Get Summer Skin Ready

Summer is on our minds here at Look Lovely London, every time we see the sun starting to peek through our clinic windows! We can’t wait to pack up our winter woollies and make way for our summer dresses, but what about our skin? In much the same way that we change our wardrobe for the sun, it’s also the time of year when we need to be thinking about revamping our skin regime too.

After a long winter, your skin may need some extra attention to look and feel its best during the sunny season which is exactly what we’re here for! In this guide, we share our top treatments for prepping, protecting and prolonging your summertime glow.

Give your skin a boost(er)

Nourished, hydrated, refreshed, rejuvenated. The results of a skin booster perfectly describe how we want our skin to feel throughout the sunnier months. Summer weather can strip the skin of moisture and lead to dehydration. A skin booster will give you a burst of hydration from the inside out, quickly combatting the effects of sun exposure and heat all whilst acting to calm and refresh the skin.

One of the best things about a skin booster is the long-term effects. Boosters promote the production of collagen and elastin for several months, working to improve texture, tone and elasticity throughout summer and beyond.

We have a wide variety of boosters all trusted by our practitioners, to target whatever your concerns may be, so why not book in for a complimentary consultation and find your skin’s new saviour this season.

Refresh with a Hydrafacial

A popular preparation step for any season and for good reason! But if we are being summer specific, many steps within a Hydrafacial treatment are important for keeping your skin healthy this season.

Hydrafacial works to clear away dead skin cells, dirt and impurities caused by increased sweat and oil production through its deep exfoliation, extraction and cleansing stages. The natural ingredients used within the treatment will infuse the skin with moisturising serums that nourish, plump and combat the drying effects of sun and wind exposure. A Hydrafacial works to enhance the overall texture and tone of the skin, leaving it looking brighter and smoother.

Nothing leaves you feeling fresher than a six-step facial so give your skin a little TLC and keep it looking its best throughout your socialising this season by visiting us for a Hydrafacial.

Why not try the Hydrabody too?

Everyone talks about the wonders the Hydrafacial works for your face, but did you know the Hydrabody incorporates all that goodness into a body treatment too?

Hydrabody involves a full-body exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, followed by a moisturising mask or body serum application to deeply hydrate the skin. Designed to leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed, it is the perfect pre-summer treat to prepare your skin for the warmer weather and sun exposure.

We treat a variety of different areas including back, arms, thigh, booty and hands, so whatever area you’re thinking could use a little extra attention before summer, we’re here to help make sure your skin is ready for the sunny days ahead.

EMShape your Summer body

We all want to feel confident and comfortable heading into whatever the sunnier months have in store for us. Summer attire, social gatherings and vacations all play a part in many of us making it our goal to lose weight and tone up before the season starts.

The EMShape Neo is designed to provide a non-invasive solution for those looking to build muscle, reduce fat and improve overall body shape and tone. The device works by inducing powerful muscle contractions to increase muscle whilst also heating and destroying fat cells through radiofrequency.

Stomach, arms, legs or buttocks – the EMShape Neo is the ultimate body contouring trick to help you feel more comfortable in your own skin this summer. All of our practitioners are fully qualified to perform the treatment and with minimal preparation and no downtime required you can get started on your journey right away.

Everyday skin protection

SPF. We all knew this would be on this list.

The crucial component of any skincare routine, SPF protects and prevents the damaging effects of the sun. By incorporating SPF into your daily routine you can help safeguard your skin and maintain its health for years to come.

We recommend you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen and apply it generously before sun exposure as well as reapplying every two hours. If you visit Look Lovely London, it’s clear from our shelves that we love Obagi, Heliocare  and ZO best! We have a range of sunscreens available for purchase including oil free and tinted products so feel free to ask you practitioner what one they think would suit your skin texture best during your appointment.

Enjoy your Summer!

We’re here to help you look and feel confident as you embark on your best summer yet. Take the first step towards a skin safe sun-kissed season by giving us a call on 020 3900 2756 or booking online. 

January Essentials

The parties, the lack of sleep, the hectic routine, the empty celebrations box… Our skin always likes to remind us that we forgot to take care of it during the blurry festive period where no one quite knew what day of the week it was.

Luckily, we have some treatment recommendations on hand to help rescue your skin, rejuvenate your complexion and get you glowing in January.

In our opinion it’s never too late to invest in a few extra gifts From You To You



Let’s get the basics out of the way first – your base!

January is the time for fresh starts and nothing leaves you feeling fresher than a six-step facial designed to make you glow.

The Hydrafacial works to clear away dead cells through deep exfoliation, extraction and cleansing. The treatment has many relaxing components to it too such as a gentle lymphatic drainage and light therapy along with natural ingredients to tackle pigmentation, acne and rosacea. Our practitioners will always tailor your facial to your specific concerns.

Suitable for all skin types, a Hydrafacial should be top of your New Years treatment to do list!



Known for its refreshing and rejuvenating powers, Profhilo is the perfect option if you are looking for an easy way to nourish your skin with results that will last well into the new year.

The treatment deeply hydrates, infusing 100% Hyaluronic acid into your skin which works to smooth out fine lines, improve texture and give you a dewy air-brushed look. One of the best things about Profhilo is its long-term effects – as the product stimulates collagen and elastin production for several months it is great for continuing to improve your natural face contour over time.

So if your resolution is to find a treatment that will give your skin the ingredients that it needs to take better care of itself, Profhilo could be your new go to.



Although summer may seem like a distant dream, it is useful to know what treatments are better done in the winter months vs when the sun is shining.

Microneedling uses tiny needles to encourage the skin to initiate its own healing process which in turn leads to the reduction of fine lines, acne, rosacea, pigmentation, stretch marks and even scarring. As the small needle punctures heal, avoiding sun exposure is key. Luckily January weather in England is good for some things! The winter months significantly reduce your risk of sun damage, meaning that your skin can recover faster and more effectively after the treatment.

Reducing healing time means seeing results sooner, so if you have been tempted to try out Microneedling there really has never been a better time.



Tired eyes are often an unwelcome post-festive staple, but luckily they don’t have to be for long.

Targeted under-eye skin boosters improve dark circles, smooth fine lines and deeply hydrate. The new go-to in targeted boosters is Polynucleotides. Polynucleotides are tiny, purified molecules that are injected into the area to encourage your cells to produce their own collagen and elastin, resulting in more radiant skin with improved texture.

Alternatively, Eyebright is a great injectable treatment for your under-eye area, achieving similar results to Polynucleotides but this time through a combination formula of amino acids and super-hydrating Hyaluronic acid.

Not sure what skin booster is right for you? You can book in for a complimentary consultation with one of our practitioners to discuss your specific concerns.



No January pick-me-up wish list would be complete without Anti-Wrinkle injections. It may seem like a predictable recommendation, but that’s because they really do work for everyone!

With both age and repetitive muscle movement, lines settle into the face and these can make you look tired and fatigued which certainly doesn’t help with that post-Christmas fatigue. Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple, non-surgical treatment to soften and smooth those wrinkles, resulting in a fresher, more youthful and relaxed looking you.

We would love to help you keep your skincare New Year’s resolutions and that’s why we have our Anti-Wrinkle membership options, offering either three or four treatments per year at a discounted price when paid in advance or monthly. The best part? You also get 10% off one other treatment of your choice each month which means that you can try out any of the above suggestions at a discounted price too!



After a busy festive season, we can’t wait to help our patients beat those January blues with a few pick-me-up treatments. If you’re ready to get your 2024 glow on the go, please call us on 020 3900 2756 or book online.

That JLo Glow

The JLo Glow everyone will be having this summer.

I was super excited to see that HydraFacial had launched a booster serum in collaboration with Jennifer Lopez, the queen of glowing skin – especially as Summer sun can be hard on the skin.


Why have a HydraFacial?

The ‘6 facials in 1′ HydraFacial helps to:

remove toxin build up with lymphatic drainage

deeply cleanse and exfoliate and tackle any congestion

– extract any blackheads or clogged pores

– remove debris and brighten skin

boost hydration

–  Stimulate collagen with LED light therapy


Why add on a booster?

The booster element is a fantastic way to tailor the treatment to your skin, and tackle any concerns  – from rosacea, acne or pigmentation.

The Jennifer Lopez booster which is based on her award winning ‘JLo glow serum’, aims to tighten, hydrate and brighten. Having just come back from a sunny holiday my skin needed a serious pick me up, so I was very excited to know Look Lovely London had the new booster in the clinic.


Is it worth the hype?

My excitement levels were pretty high as Jennifer Lopez has the most beautiful glowy and dewy skin which I have always envied! I had high hopes going into my treatment. My skin was looking very dull, congested and had no brightness to it, so the HydraFacial and booster had some serious work to do to get my skin ready for the weekend! I was delighted to hear during the treatment that the booster was being absorbed by my skin very happily (it very much needed it!)

The results

Straight after the treatment my skin was already looking so much better! My congestion looked calmer, and I finally had bright skin again. I made sure to get a good night’s sleep and drank extra water, to give my skin the extra boost it needed. To truly test the booster, I went into work the next day with zero make up on – and no one even noticed! I had the JLo glow!

Verdict- 10/10 – leaving your house without make up can be daunting but after seeing how bright and dewy my skin looked, I had full confidence in doing so!  This is the biggest compliment I can give the treatment. Thank you, Jennifer Lopez! I will definitely be including the booster in my future HydraFacial appointments!


Ready to book? Simply give us a call on 020 3900 2756, or book your next Hydrafacial online.

Not sure if this is the right treatment for you? If you would like a personalised treatment plan or advice, then please don’t hesitate to email us some clear pictures of the area you are looking to treat, and we will happily review for you.

There is pretty much nothing a HydraFacial can’t help you with.

What skin conditions does a Hydrafacial treat?

– Fine lines and wrinkles: the hydrating and nourishing serums that are used during a HydraFacial can help to plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

– Dull uneven skin tone: the exfoliation acid peel steps of the HydraFacial can help to remove dead skin cells and brighten the complexion, leading to a more even skin tone.

– Acne prone and oily skin: The vortex extraction nozzle used during the HydraFacial can help to unclog and minimized the appearance of pores, reducing the occurrence of acne breakouts and controlling excess oil production.
