Tulloch Clinic and Beauty Studio – Skincare and beauty maintenance tips

Face and body

♥ Aim to exfoliate the body twice a week using either: a body scrub product, body brush or exfoliating mitt.

♥ Exfoliate your face according to your product instruction usually at least once a week. If you are on high levels of topical vitamin A, your skin may not need it. Follow with generous applications of moisturiser

Protect yourself from UV when you’re out and about

♥ Apply a broad-spectrum UVA and B daily in a UV cream format on exposed skin.

♥ SPF . also available in mineral powder form.

♥ Hats and peaks make all the difference.

Hair removal options at home

♥ Pre coated wax strips available from most supermarkets, Boots and online.

♥ Hair removal cream.

♥ The nifty new hair removal gadget by JML called Finishing Touch Flawless which trims the hair level with the skin surface.


♥ Minimize unwanted bacteria that cause break outs. Wash your skincare and make up brushes to reduce bacteria. Use a gentle cleansing gel or shampoo with lukewarm water. Hot water may melt the glue in your brushes causing them to shed.

F&B Feedback

National Asparagus Month

Throughout May it’s National Asparagus Month – the perfect time to try out this delicious vegetable.

The British asparagus season runs from May to June and it is considered to be the best in the world.  Asparagus comes in green, purple and white.  Most British asparagus is green.  The white variety, which is grown in the dark to stop the colour developing is popular in Europe, although now quite readily available in the UK too.

Asparagus is a great source of fibre and is rich in vitamins A, B and C as well as folic acid – perfect for getting you fit and ready for summer if you’re working towards that bikini body for your UK summer holiday!

When buying asparagus choose firm but tender stalks with good colour and closed tips.  Asparagus soon loses its flavour and tenderness, so it is best eaten on the day of purchase.

Before cooking wash in cold water and remove the ends of the stalks. Boil or steam until just tender (4-7 minutes depending on thickness).  Or, why not try it in a stir-fry, blend it in some delicious soup or simply boil it on its own and season with a little salt and pepper or a vinaigrette dressing.
