The Secret To Healthy Eating (It’s not what you think!)

“Jo” stood with one hand protectively shielding her stomach.

“I used to be active,” she told me, “but during Coronavirus I was stuck at home all day.

“Every time I passed the fridge or the fruit bowl, I helped myself to something to eat… It was partially boredom and partially anxiety.

“Now my stomach is suddenly spilling over my jeans…”

My heart went out to Jo. She had reached a healthy weight several years ago and stuck to a healthy eating plan with enormous willpower.

Now, because of this year’s crazy circumstances, all her hard work was at risk…

She needed to backtrack fast. 

If her story resonates, you’re not alone.

The Coronavirus shut-down created perfect conditions for people to abandon their healthy eating and gain weight.

You probably stocked up on food as part of the panic buying at the beginning of the crisis…

And just like Jo, the temptation to fill up on comfort food and snacks during these long, stressful days may have been too much.

Add into that equation closed gyms…

And you get what’s being called the “Quarantine 15” or the “Corona Stone”.

Those are rather cute nicknames for the sudden appearance of love handles, a double chin or bingo wings.

Even at the best of times, it can be very stressful when your clothes suddenly start feeling tight, and don’t fit you right…

You just don’t feel like yourself any more, and every movement you make feels awkward.

You feel guilty because you over-indulged (even in the most difficult of circumstances)…

And you worry before facing your friends again.

But nowadays, there is an even more serious reason to be concerned. The science shows that people who are overweight are at additional risk from Coronavirus.

Getting back into shape and into healthy eating patterns has never been more urgent.

So let me tell you what I’ve always found helps…

A bit of success.


You are far more likely to stick with a healthy eating plan or to exercise regularly once you see some results.

Actually, losing a bit of weight, seeing your clothes fit better and feeling those love handles or tummy shrink is the best motivation to do more.

And you’d have the motivation you need to maintain those results.

It’s what we see again and again in “normal” times. Patients who really struggled to get rid of stubborn fat suddenly find the willpower to cook healthy meals and eat sensible portions, and even go for a run…

…Because for the first time in ages, they like what they see in the mirror – and want to keep it that way.

The easiest way to get the body shape you want quickly is with a body sculpting treatment.

We can help you lose significant fat in specific areas, like your love handles, abs, chin, thighs, arms or even back, giving you a sleek, sculpted silhouette…

…And the kick-start you need to get your health back on track.  

Depending on the kinds of results you want to see, how much time you have and your personal preferences, we have a few different body sculpting options that might suit you. They’re all very effective!

We use an outstanding technology called Vanquish Me. Vanquish uses radio frequency energy in an adjustable panel that hovers over the targeted area of unwanted fat. Radio frequency energy from the Vanquish device is specially tuned to target fat cells.

Imagine if you could IMMEDIATELY change your body shape…

…Getting rid of those new curves or bumps, rolling back the clock so that your wobbly tummy, or feeling your thighs slim back down to the way they used to be in January or February (before they started to rub together painfully)?

You’d feel so much better, wouldn’t you…

Is ‘Balloon Syndrome’ Affecting Your Face?

It’s a few days after the party…

… And there are still balloons hanging everywhere in your living room.

But recently, they’ve started to deflate, and as their air slowly seeps out of them, they start to look sunken and misshapen…

Creases and puckers appear.

The balloons originally made everyone feel excited and energized, but now they just look… Sad.

You know whats even sadder?

What happened to those balloons are exactly what happens to our faces as we age. ..

Ok, so no air seeps out of them!

But think about it this way. When you’re young you have lots of fad pads under your skin, which makes your face look fully ‘inflated’. Your skin is plump, taunt and healthy.

As you grow older, the fat pads under your skin tend to shrink (and move) – so you have less fat under your skin.

Your skin starts to sink in…

First your eyes become a bit hollow, then your cheeks look a bit gaunt. Friends might secretly think you look a bit ill… you’ll certainly look more tired!

If you have any wrinkles or fine lines, they’ll be much for noticeable.

And your skin can start to sag as the structures supporting it underneath the surface disappear, giving you your first sign of jowls.

Finally, you might wonder where your cheek bones have gone!

It’s a lot like deflating a balloon, because when you lose volume, your skin caves inwards and becomes much looser.

It’s not a good look is it!?

Most people think their face looks better when it’s very slim. The truth is that you need a certain amount of “plump” for your face to look right!

So, what do you do if ‘Balloon Syndrome’ is affecting your face?

You need to re-inflate it!

You can’t do it naturally… but here at The Guernsey Skin & Beauty Centre, we can do it with dermal fillers.

In fact it’s one of the most common and popular procedures we do.

It involves injecting some natural substances under the surface of your skin, to fill your face back out again…

… Just like you might blow air back into a balloon.

We might treat your entire face, or individual areas like your cheeks, jawline, temples, eyes or even your lips.

Either way, the point isn’t to fill in individual lines, but to improve the shape of your face, so that it looks soft, healthy and youthful – just like it did a few years ago – with just the right amount of plump.

If you think you might need fillers, why not book a consultation with me, so we can look at your skin and discuss your goals.

It can sometimes be difficult to tell by yourself whether you need fillers, but tell-tale signs include:

  • looking gaunt and thinking your face doesn’t look its best, because it’s too thin
  • Having prominent, deep folds between your nose and mouth – this a key sign that the fat pads are disappearing under the surface of your skin
  • Your cheekbones are disappearing
  • You have prominent wrinkles or lines on your face. You might think it’s because of the natural aging process, but they can also be caused by a lack of fat under your skin!

Give us an email or call to discuss your skin with us.

It doesn’t take long to add some volume back into your face – we can do it in a single visit – and you’ll love just how much younger and softer you’ll look, after this simple tweak!

Love The Skin You’re In

Hey there beautiful people!

Hasn’t 2020 be one heck of a whirlwind so far? When life almost gets really real, sometimes it’s hard to keep up! You find yourself going through the motions and neglecting the things you love.

One of the things I try and stay focused on is my daily skin care routine. Loving the skin you’re in is so important. That’s why I have created this blog to go through some of the fundamentals about taking care of your skin, what a successful skin care routine should look like, and also all about our medical graded products to help with different skin conditions.

We’re here to help – Free Consultations

To our Friends and Clients, old and new.

We may have been quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives more than anything we’ve ever experienced before. With most of the world practicing social distancing measures or under complete lockdown, we’ve all had to change the way we do just about everything.

With that in mind, we now offer online consultations, which have proved very popular. So popular, that we have decided to keep this as a permanent service. This gives us a chance to reach out not only to our local clients, but also to our clients in Jersey and London.

How Does It Work?

It’s simple really. With everyone at home and glued to their phones more than ever, (who knew that was possible), our consultations can be done via Facebook, FaceTime or email. We’ll talk through your skin problems, your routine and any other issues you may have, and come up with the best treatment tailored to you. We will get you on the road to beautiful skin.

Look at this review from a client that has already experienced this new service.

“As someone who suffers from acne, I have become quiet self conscious. The thought of walking into a salon fills me with anxiety, so I got in touch with Bronwen, who gave me a consultation on FaceTime. She immediately put me at ease and together, we worked on a skincare routine to help with my problem. I can already see a difference! She also offered a brilliant payment plan for the skin products she recommended. I can’t thank her enough!”

Interested?

Drop us a message on our Facebook page or email us at info@guernseyskinandbeauty.com to book your free online consultation.

We looking forward to hearing from you and welcoming you all back when our doors are finally open.
