Unfortunately, the burden of being an urban-junkie weighs heavily on your skin. Remember your skin is the largest organ of your body interfacing with the environment every minute of the day and absorbing the damages of your millennial lifestyle – just as much as your liver or gut.
As I tell my patients, stress shows on the skin and so does a summer-partying lifestyle!
Skin is notoriously affected by our sugar-loaded, caffeine-fuelled, high-alcohol content lifestyles.
Then we unwittingly add chemically-laced skin care. It’s next assaulted by pollution and smoke. Fatigued by stress and unsuspectingly irradiated by the sun – even when you’re just sitting in the car.
It’s no surprise that if you’re like most women you’re probably spending endless time and energy in damage control for your skin!
After a Medical Degree and over 10 years of work in skin medicine, laser and cosmetics here are My Personal 3 best skin biohacks.
They are certainly not the ONLY way or the RIGHT way but these are MY QUICKEST ways of perfecting skin for a morning-after clean with a whitening shine…. post hang-over.

Chemical peels should never be underestimated in their value to us lazy girls out there! Between you and me, every week I use a super mild superficial lactic acid peel, which takes me a whole 45 seconds to apply to get my “peel shine on” – it certainly beats having to use expensive exfoliants regularly.
I would definitely say chemical peels are skin’s best friend. A chemical exfoliation that literally removes the polluted layers with fresh new skin.
Although you can get very light peels like a glycolic or lactic acid you probably will want to get a medium depth peel that reaches your superficial dermis like a Jessner’s, for instance, to really remove damaged, pigmented cells and truly stimulate the new growth of an epidermis.
It will treat any associated sun damage, pigmentation like melasma an improve acne scars.
Unfortunately, I have seen chemical peels fall slightly out of favour these days because in the wrong hands’ side-effects taint the experience. They are best performed by dermatologists or with a medical practitioner where you get a quality chemical peel formulated correctly otherwise you could be wasting your money on a very lovely organic blueberry peel that smells nice.
Chemical peels will naturally cause the skin to peel and shed.
My tip, try to use them “mindfully” as and turn the shedding skin into a positive experience. Think about letting go of an old habit or old pattern of thinking; the cathartic effect of shedding old skin with fresh new skin can be quite a magickal transformational experience. Try it!
Jessners peel cost: $170/peel.
Downtime: 5-7 days before new skin shines
Facial laser treatmentGurney, it out!
Lasers and IPL which uses the power of our light spectrum and light energy are truly skin savers.
For those who are lucky to have skin types 1 or 2 (fair skin), you get the extra option of using IPL – a classic for removing pigmentation and freckles and brightening skin.
Darker pigment in skin types 3 to 5 (olive, Asian or black skin) means darker skin types are better off using a fractionated laser.
My favourite laser is picosure focus, safe for darker skin and works brilliantly on Asian skin too!
It’s a dramatic photomechanical impact on skin blasts pigment away rapidly freshening up the skin and the power advancement if picosecond power creates a vacuole of energy in the dermis drawing in cells that produce collagen and elastin giving its anti-wrinkling and tightening effect.
Plus Picosure has only a 1 to 3 hour downtime of face redness making this “lunchtime laser” a girl’s version of a sexy skin quickie.
IPL full face $350
3-4 days peel off
Fractionated laser full face $480
3-4 days peel off
Anti Pollution Pico Full Face $580
1-3 hours, no peel off.

Flood your cells! Rehydrate with a nutritional tonic.
Vitamin C has been long been established as natures miracle Vitamin. No one needs reminding that without it scurvy causes poor healing and skin breakdown – it’s vital in collagen synthesis and brightens skin.
The topical and oral administration is commonly used but rapid flooding of cells with IV vitamin C is a quick-cut.
Try the Medics version of a Bloody Mary with an intravenous Vitamin C cocktail.
FYI – IV vitamins like zinc helping skin turnover, glutathione and vitamin c which are powerful anti-oxidants and vitamin b3 (niacin) helps your epidermis stay smooth and not dry.
