Get Your Ace Face On With Strawberries & Cream

News article photo

With Wimbledon in full swing, the tournament’s world-famous strawberries and cream is the perfect match snack. But did you know that tucking into the sweet treat also has glowing benefits for your skin?

Strawberries are packed with vitamins and vital antioxidants. However, their skin perfecting qualities may be easily overlooked.

One cup of fresh strawberries can give 4mg of Vitamin C, equating to 149% of the recommended daily intake. An essential skin nutrient, Vitamin C cleanses, tones and soothes skin, visibly improving complexion.

Vitamin C has also been discovered to fight ‘free radicals’. Found to damage skin cells and break down collagen, free radicals ultimately result in the appearance of fine lines and early aging.

Wimbledon may increase our strawberry intake for a short period, but for the remaining 50 weeks of the year many of us fail to get enough Vitamin C into our diet.

We have an array of solutions to ensure your skin looks performance ready all year round.

Vitamin Facials

Vitamins and antioxidants are the key to keeping skin healthy while enjoying the outdoors.

Dermal Clinic ® Ionzyme Facial with Vitamin Infusion works by adding two innovative processes to the classic facial treatment.

Firstly, Iontophoresis projects electric currents allowing greater nutrient penetration. This is followed by Sonophoresis, which uses sound waves to transport active nutrients deeper into the skin, compared to a more basic facial.

Alpha-hydroxyl Acid has been proven to reverse signs of aging on the skin, by now, it should come as no surprise that strawberries are a primary source.

Skin Peels

A further property of strawberries comes in the form of Salicylic Acid – a powerhouse formula which reduces hyperpigmentation and dark spots, caused by the sun. Salicylic Acid also helps to tighten pores and reduce excess oil on the face, allowing you to wave goodbye to acne.

Ellagic Acid is another widely praised element of strawberries, an antioxidant which has been shown to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. It does so by forming a protective layer on the skin.

Other than jeopardising time in the short-lived Scottish summer, opt for one of Dermal Clinic’s skin peels. The treatments can be used for varying types of skin condition, including hyperpigmentation and dark spots.

Laser Skin Peel uses laser technology to target sun-damaged skin cells and remove layers of dead skin. Most cases of dark spots and sun damage are cleared after one session, with deeper cases taking up to four sessions.


Berries are bursting with antioxidants and consuming them is one of the simplest ways to meet your quota.

For an easy, year-round boost, Advanced Nutrition Programme supplements can help keep your skin in tip-top condition.

The dual aspect of Vitamin A and antioxidants turbo-charge your routine, leaving your skin vibrant and healthy.

The Advanced Nutrition Programme is priced at £80, equating to roughly £20pcm. Find out more about the programme here.

Next time you are tucking into a bowl of strawberries and cream as part of your Wimbledon viewing, just remember that you are actually feeding your skin with vital nutrients.

Game, set, match.
