For many people, and not just teenagers alone, problem skin and acne is a debilitating condition that affects confidence and lifestyle.  Hormones, stress and diet are just some of the triggers.  Here at Sarah Hurst Skin & Beauty in Brighton we can approach these conditions with a number of techniques and treatments to work with you to improve the skin and enable you to gain control of your life.  It isn’t always a quick fix, but the following highlights some of our approaches which have been clinically proven to assist many people.

We always start with a thorough consultation that looks at what you are currently using on the skin, including all skincare and make-up.  We also address diet and lifestyle.  Following on from our findings we make thorough personalised recommendations. We choose from many of the following:

Environ LACM Cool Peel
Salon Treatment

Environ Skin Care has launched a revolutionary approach to peeling that achieves incredible results without damaging the skin.  Low strength Lactic acid is used to reduce the skin’s PH and trigger the release of growth factors, which creates tighter, smoother skin.  It destroys bacteria, boosts hydration and removes the build-up of dead skin cells, helping to decongest the surface and smooth its texture. 

For best results a course of one peel a week for six weeks is recommended.

Environ Purifying Treatment
Salon Treatment

Created to purify, micro-exfoliate and re-hydrate your skin, this particular treatment assists with the treatment of acne, scarring and deep skin congestion.  The combination of scientifically advanced products and techniques revives and refreshes your skin, leaving your skin like new.

Environ LACM Cool Peel
Home Kit


Environ’s LACM Cool Peel Home Kit helps to rejuvenate the skin, whilst being gentle on the epidermis.  Very aggressive peels destroy important skin cells, whilst light, repetitive treatments with the home kit help to stimulate healthy growth.

This is a lower concentration than the Salon treatment, but has been shown to address problem skin effectively and comfortably. This achieves visibly smoother skin with minimal redness and no recovery time.

The kit includes sufficient low concentration LACM1 masque for four to five treatments, plus a neutralising cleanser, brush, palette and headband. It is advised to maintain frequent treatments to help keep the skin sterile and clear.  For the best results combine the home peel kit with the salon treatments.

Jane Iredale Mineral Make-Up

Jane Iredale is a pioneer in the development of mineral make-up and the quality of the minerals in these products is far superior to other mineral make-up brands.  It is difficult to remove every allergy risk as anyone can be allergic or sensitive to anything.  However in this make-up brand the top 3 sensitisers have been removed, which are synthetic fragrance, FD&C dyes and synthetic preservatives.  Tests in a laboratory have shown that people with even the most extreme chemical sensitivities can wear this make-up successfully.

Jane Iredale Mineral Make-up allows the skin to breathe and function normally.  It doesn’t congest the skin, and also helps to cover any redness.  It also contains anti-inflammatory properties.  Often make-up can cause skin blockages and eruptions, so just by changing your make-up to Jane Iredale Mineral Make-up sometimes breakouts can be minimised completely. See our make-up section to find out more about this fantastic make-up range.
