Sleep: A vital part of being human, but what are we doing for all those hours a night? And how long do we really need to sleep?

With so many opinions, it can be hard to navigate the world of sleep. Many sleep experts agree that we all need roughly 7-9 hours per night for optimal health. So, why is it so common for us to run on such little sleep, and is it borderline dangerous? And does a lack of sleep affect your skin health? Let’s find out.

Dr Dev Patel’s recommended products for skin regeneration

GF5: Bio-Regenerative Growth Factor Serum

Growth Factors trigger responses and processes within the body. They are naturally occurring and area key part of our body’s ability to regenerate. Within the skin, injury or ageing can lead to a breakdown of normal skin architecture. This can manifest with signs such as skin laxity, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and scarring. Growth Factors trigger processes essential for repair.

GF5 features an industry-leading strength of vegan Growth Factors, formulated to significantly improve overall skin health. Studies show that our Growth Factor Complex increase skin elasticity by up to 47% in just 4 weeks, and reduces wrinkles by up to 46% in 4 weeks.

Retin-ACE: Next-Generation Retinoid Skin Resurfacing Night Serum

Retin-ACE contains a next-generation retinoid (Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate). Our retinoid is a Vitamin A derivative, and has the power of prescription-strength retinoids such as 0.1% Tretinoin on collagen stimulation, but it will not cause irritation.

It achieves this by binding directly to the receptors. With most retinol, a breakdown process is required to deliver the benefits to the skin cells, and this process is the reason why skin becomes irritated, dry, red and at times itchy and flaky.

Retin-ACE is suitable for all skin types, and can be used by patients with rosacea.

To purchase Retin-ACE, you need to connect with a CellDerma-approved clinic and book a consultation (some clinics offer video consultations). Retin-ACE is not a licensed medicine, but we like to ensure you receive the best advice and guidance before using this product.
