What’s a gummy bear doing on our feed, you wonder? It’s actually a hot topic during our breast augmentation consultations. Gummy bear implants, that is. They come in different shapes and sizes and they’re known for providing a very natural looking breast shape. Our expert surgeons listen to your needs and help you understand all of your options. Together you will decide which implant is most ideal for your breast shape and your body. #gummybear#gcps

We are also hosting this educational event in partnership with our colleagues from the New Zealand Association of Plastic Surgeons in the spectacular setting of Auckland.

New cells are born at the bottom of the epidermis, and the existing cells are pushed up toward the surface, where they eventually die. Their flattened out corpses stick around as the top layer of the epidermis, called the stratum corneum.
Those dead cells aren’t useless, though. They stick around because they’re important, serving as the barrier between you and the environment. The stratum corneum is what keeps you from being porous to the outside world, keeping moisture in and contaminants out. Eventually, though, as new cells are pushed up and die, the top layer of the stratum corneum sheds off.
Exfoliation is the shedding of those cells. Healthy skin exfoliates on its own but as we age, that process slows down. The dullness and flakiness we associate with dry skin is a failure of skin’s natural exfoliation. When too much of the stratum corneum hangs around, the cells clump into flakes and scales. Exfoliating products hasten your skin’s natural process. This can be by physical means: scrubbing off the top layer of dead cells. Others exfoliate by chemical means: loosening the bonds between the dead cells so that they fall off more quickly. Done right, exfoliation really does live up to some of its promises. .
So how often should one exfoliate and why?! 2-3x a week is all you need! This will get the dead skin off so your products can penetrate and helps skin glow! Also, helps from keeping the dead skin from falling into your pores and contesting you! If you have sensitive skin use an enzyme cleanser or mask or pads with a light chemical exfoliant as those will be less abrasive on delicate skin! .
