Sugar ages the skin!

Happy Easter 🐣 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news while you're all tucking into your chocolate BUT...

Eating too much sugar over time ages the skin, making it dull and more prone to wrinkles. This is due to a process called glycation. 

Eat chocolate in moderation & cut out sugars where you can e.g. In teas/coffees and on breakfast cereals.

Claudia McGloin was interviewed for this feature on Lip Fillers for Shemazing where she discusses her own personal experience of botched lip fillers! 💉💋💉

Safety is paramount so, please only choose reputable experienced medical professionals in clinics. Non health professionals cannot deal with complications such as Vascular Occlusions!

Facial Thread Veins

THREAD VEINS otherwise known as Spider Veins, Broken Veins, Venous Flares, Broken Capillaries or Surface Veins are extremely common. Telangiectasia, the medical term are red or purple in colour and are visible on the skins surface. They can appear in clusters or as individual veins and are usually about 1-2mm. They are also Genetic and effect both men and women. 

Facial Thread Veins are usually found around the nose but can spread up onto the cheeks. These are very different to the Thread Veins that are found on the legs. 

Although they are called Thread Veins they are Dilated Capillary Networks from your Arteries (Arteries take blood from the heart to the rest of the body and Veins return blood to the heart). The blood inside them is more oxygenated and therefore appear brighter red in colour.

Facial skin tends to be much more sensitive than the skin on the legs, and is also exposed to daily elements like sun and wind. Facial Thread Veins can also be triggered by extremes of temperatures and are often a consequence of Rosacea. 

Effective treatment for Facial Thread Veins can usually be achieved by using one of the following treatments:

  • Advanced Electrolysis
  • Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
  • Laser

All of these treatments work by using heat to destroy the Blood Vessel. Injecting vessels on the face is NOT recommended! 

Thread Veins are generally harmless, but can, on rare occasions, be a symptom of other vascular issues. If you do happen to notice any thread veins, it's advisable to contact a medical professional with experience in skin conditions.

Vitamin C and your Skin

Now that we are coming into spring and the weathers starting to improve, it's time to tackle our winter skin. Many will have noticed that their skin looks tired, dull and lack lustre. This is no surprise after winter weather, fires, heaters and air conditioning.

One of the best ways to tackle dull, tired and lack lustre skin is to add a Vitamin C serum into your daily skin routine. Easy peasy! 

Vitamin C can help to firm and brighten the skin while also evening out uneven skin tone and fading sun spots. 


New You by Claudia McGloin has a Professional Strength Vitamin C Serum called C-10. Use daily as part of your skincare routine.

This advanced signature C-10 serum used scientific and evidence based formulas, offering daily antioxidant protection. C-10 contains stabilised L-ascorbic acid which is a form of Vitamin C which is easily absorbed by the skin for greater potency. 

C-10 is one of 8 signature skincare products in the New You by Claudia McGloin Clinic range. 

This range was a finalist for Best Professional Skincare at the My Face My Body Awards in November 2016 in London.
