Tatiana Korsakova, creator of Vaara, and Dr Anita Sturnham, skincare expert and founder of Clinic Nuriss, London had an interesting conversation about beauty and skincare. The beauty gurus decrypt some advanced techniques for zero defect skin.

Excerpt from the chat:

Tatiana Korsakova: What is your approach towards beauty?

Anita Sturnham: In a perfect world, a single annual consultation with the dermatologist would be enough to maintain the radiance of the skin, regardless of the age or the skin type. This is unfortunately not the case. An appointment with an expert in the field is an ingenious investment in the long term. In my clinic, I was able to meet a lot of people, who spent a fortune on cosmetics and mixed different brands without ever really being satisfied with the appearance of their skin. That is why it’s essential to surround yourself with seasoned professionals, who can determine the best beauty routine. One of the determining factors of glowing skin is the base on which we will rely to concoct the non-invasive treatments which are hightech and multitasking. These treatments will simultaneously treat wrinkles, hyper pigmentation and signs of fatigue.

Tatiana: What are the game changing innovations in the beauty industry?

Anita: The appearance of cosmeceuticals is, in my opinion, a revolution. We now use high-end formulas with clinically proven effects, which act in depth at the cellular level. The skincare market has started developing and using the beneficial effects of stem cells and botanical peptides. Aesthetic medicine interventions are changing, and we tend to abandon injectables in favour of solutions such as radio frequency and ultrasound as they increase the natural production of collagen and can rejuvenate without risk.

Tatiana: What are your tips to keep the skin healthy even in stress?

Anita: Our skin often reflects our internal well-being. When our days are overloaded and we sleep little, our skin is the witness. That’s why I insist that one should respect the morning and evening routines, as per the schedule. I recommend applying a  regenerating fruit mask once a week and adopting formulas loaded with lactic and glycolic acids. You can also rely on dietary supplements rich in marine collagen, hyaluronic acid and phytoceramides to boost the skin from the inside.

Tatiana: Tell us about the skincare brand that you imagined.

Anita: After so many years of studying the science of skin and its secrets, I now believe more than ever in the importance of skincare with the right nutrients, at the right time of day. Based upon my medical, dermatological and cosmetic background, I came up with Nuriss, and a range of treatments that simplifies the traditional approach. We can have cosmeceuticals, for visible and lasting results without compromising on the richness of textures and quality packaging.
