Mr Banwell and his team at The Banwell Clinic in Sussex believe that healthy skin and good quality skin care regimens are essential to look and feel good. It is all about skin health and choosing innovative, affordable, simple yet powerful anti aging skin care (

Lack of exercise, poor dietary habits, stress, smoking and excessive sun exposure can all lead to poor skin health. We therefore aim to help identify and rectify many of these problems with health options worldwide website which focus on individualized skin assessments and a personalized skin care routine. Use of beauty skin care and skin care products can have a major effect on your skin. Many models therefore focus on anti ageing skin care products (especially natural skin care and organic skin care) to keep their skin in tip-top condition. However, the consumer is bombarded with a variety of complex terms such as peptides, neuropeptides, botanics, ceramides, glycolic, phyto and such like and is is often difficult to decipher what they all mean. Some of these are important and some not so!

Importantly, top-quality medical grade skin products (cosmeceuticals) do now exist that contain scientifically proven active compounds. With regular use these advanced anti ageing skin care products can lead to beautiful-looking, luminous skin and a clear complexion.

Whilst there are many good over the counter creams (Clinique, Dermalogica, Elemis) and cosmeceutical ranges (Cosmedix, Epionce, SkinCeuticals, Osmosis, Obagi, Agera and Priori), Mr Banwell has scoured the world for the best beauty skin care credentials. He now uses and recommends exclusive anti ageing skin care product ranges from UK and Australia to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage, sallow skin, pigmentation, acne and sensitive skins. In particular, the latest skin-specific formulations from Medik8 ensure optimal absorption through the skin to enhance your natural beauty. The Medik8 formulations are at the cutting edge of dermatological research. The Medik8 skin care secret is available to you too and Mr Banwell and his team at The Banwell Clinic would be delighted to see you for a complimentary skin consultation.

Preventive Range

Medik8's Prevent Range is a revolutionary anti-oxidant based product line that aids prevention of sun-induced skin damage. Sunscreens (SPFs) are important in protecting the skin from damaging UV rays but research suggests that full protection from photo-ageing is only gained from the additional use of anti-oxidants


Vitamin C Facts

it is an essential coenzyme for the synthesis of collagen

it is essential for the transportation of collagen molecules into the dermis

it is an excellent free radical scavenger (anti-oxidant)

it disrupts melanin sysnthesis in melanocytes thereby reducing pigmentation


Corrective Serums

Retinol (Vitamin A) has been shown in many scientific studies to combat skin-ageing problems such as facial wrinkles (rhytids), lines and folds as well as loss of firmness. Retinol can also improve skin clarity and texture as well as also improving pigmentation, acne and pore size.

Medik8 is at the forefront of a new retinol revolution utilising patented 'molecular film micro-encapsulation' technology ensuring potent actives, incredible skin feel and the highest quality all-trans retinol.

Medik8 retinol products also benefit from 'time releaae' technology which harnesses the power of encapsulation to release retinol to the skin gradually over time rather than in one burst.

Retinol is a fantastic and powerful ingredient in cosmeceutical skin care but it can cause sensitivity of the skin so it needs to be introduced carefully into one's regime. The team at the Banwell Clinic will be happy to discuss this with you and prepare a tailored programme of products from the Medik8 range.
