We Welcome Our New Brand: Ameliorate

We're excited to bring another excellent new skincare brand to Sulis & Thermae in the form of Ameliorate. If you're curious about this technologically advanced skincare solution or if you're concerned about keratosis pilaris then read on as we've put together a quick guide to introduce you to the world of Ameliorate. 

What is Ameliorate? 

AMELIORATE is an exclusive line of products that offer luxurious moisture for softer, more radiant looking skin all over the body. This technologically advanced skincare solution help improve the appearance of keratosis pilaris (aka 'chicken skin') and other dry and often embarrassing skin conditions. The patent pending formula contains is luxurious in texture, easily absorbed and contains effective levels of alpha hydroxy acids, which until now, have been difficult to obtain in the UK. This winning combination ensures your skin gets real results and serious pampering.

What is ' Keratosis pilaris'?

Keratosis pilaris is a harmless, but often embarrassing skin condition that causes little bumps on your skin. It often appears on the tops of the arms but can also be visible on other parts of the body such as the thighs, buttocks and occasionally the forearms and upper back. The little bumps look and feel a bit like permanent goose pimples hence the name 'chicken skin'. 

What causes it? 

The condition of keratosis pilaris occurs when too much keratin builds up in the skin's hair follicles. Keratin is a protein found in the tough outer layer of skin, which causes the surface of the skin to thicken. The excess keratin blocks the hair follicles with plugs of hard, rough skin. The tiny plugs widen the pores, giving the skin a spotty appearance.

How can I get rid of it?

Ameliorate offer a full range of fantastic products designed to not only combat keratosis pilaris but to offer beautiful radiant skin regardless of skin condition. The products contain alpha hydroxy acids which are known for their exfoliating properties. 

We recommend starting your routine with the Ameliorate Skin Smoothing Body Mitt which is specially created for use on dry skin, that effectively sweeps away dead skin cells from the skin's surface to reveal softer, smoother, healthier looking skin. 

For added exfoliation, you can also use the Ameliorate Skin Smoothing Body Polish  which is proven to deliver exceptional skin smoothing results. This multi-action exfoliator has been specially formulated to encourage simultaneous exfoliation above and within the skin's surface whilst providing outstanding skin conditoning benefits. A gentle, effective way to achieve softer, smoother, healthier looking skin.

For every day use, you could try the Ameliorate Skin Smoothing Shower Cream which contains natural oils of Starflower and Camelina, both rich sources of Omega fatty acids 3, 6 and 9, which are effective in the care of extreme dry skin conditions, helping to reduce moisture loss whilst offering protection to the skin. 

Finally, you should finish your routine with the Skin Smoothing Body Lotion which contains optimum levels of Lactic Acid, a naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acid that provides intense hydration and encourages the skin’s natural exfoliation process, gently removing the build up of dead skin and replenishing moisture, leaving skin ultra soft and smooth.
