Amanda Azzopardi

What does the term “women’s wellness” mean to you?

Being able to talk openly about optimising our wellness journey. Statistics show that 85% of women never talk about their quality of life and levels of wellness. Focusing on women ageing well rather than looking at the aging process as a chronic disease pathway.

Why is advocating for women’s wellness and being vocal about treatments available important?

It’s important to raise awareness, you’re not alone! Creating open welcoming spaces to discuss gut health, skin health and intimate health, taking time for rest, recovery and maintenance of our health.

What treatments / services do you offer to enhance women’s wellness?

Here at Amanda Azzopardi Aesthetics we offer treatments to tighten and lift the face, sculpt and shape the body, regain energy, stamina and vitality to create true confidence from within empowering every women’s femininity.

What is your favourite treatment(s) to improve women’s quality of life and why?

One of my favourite treatments is intimate radio frequency combined with the pelvic floor tightening chair to improve urinary incontinence and sexual function, relieving dryness, itchiness and thinning skin to install a sense of confidence whether you are at the gym, at work or in the bedroom.

What are some of the most common women’s wellness issues patients come to you with?

Women suffer dry and dull skin, adult acne, vaginal dryness, loss of confidence regarding femininity, sexual embarrassment, discomfort whilst enjoying outdoor activities. Other concerns include facial volume loss, sagging features, reporting they look tired all the time, knowing the impact is far greater than just their physical and mental health. Learning from each other in time of declining hormones, increasing inflammation and reducing energy levels is so important, the pressure for women to perform is at a height, driven by societal demands with increasing work, social and family commitments.

Are there any misconceptions / taboos about women’s wellness issues or treatments that are available?

The taboo surrounding why women seek aesthetic treatments, is often focused more towards vanity and retaining their youthful features. Husbands fear the worst based on broad misconceptions of poor outcomes and media hype of misplaced dermal filler. More commonly, most women seek my assistance for subtle enhancements that simply refresh their confidence. The more we can collectively educate, the more we can normalise and celebrate aging well.

How can we, as women, practice better wellness at home? How can we look after ourselves physically and mentally? Do you have any advice, tips, hacks or pearls of wisdom to share?

Women’s Wellness at home should consider all physical, emotional and social aspects that alter a woman’s quality of life, such as her physical and hormonal issues, bone health, gastrointestinal stressors, urinary incontinence, and sexual health. Make time for yourself haircare, intimate health, skincare, vitamins and supplements, schedule regular time in your diary and educate yourself about your body.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I encourage my clients to prioritise their health, improve their level of health awareness, it’s the consistent things that you do every day that make long-term improvement, simply incorporating healthy habits into your daily life is the best way to avoid disease, prolong life, and live a happier life.

1. Follow a healthy, balanced diet

Fatty, fried foods are difficult for your stomach to digest, often leading to stomach aches and heartburn. Give your stomach a break by avoiding greasy food and instead eating lean meat or fish, as well as hearty helpings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

2. Do not binge drink

There are many health consequences of binge drinking, but when it comes to your gut, excess acid production is a major problem. This doesn’t just cause heartburn but can worsen other tummy problems, such as IBS.

3. Eat properly

Eating well doesn’t just mean following a healthy, balanced diet. It also means not rushing when you eat, chewing properly, avoiding excessively large meals and sticking to a regular meal routine, which should include not eating for at least 2 hours before bedtime.

4. Quit smoking

Smoking relaxes certain muscles that prevent acid from your stomach from rising up into your gullet. It, consequently, increases your risk of acid reflux. Given the many other health hazards of smoking, it is best to quit. You can ask your GP about local services to help you stop smoking.

4. Reduce your stress levels

Although easier said than done, reducing your stress levels can ease a host of tummy symptoms, such as constipation, diarrhoea and bloating. By lowering your stress levels, you reduce your risk of conditions such as IBS and stomach ulcers too.

Follow these tips and you won’t just enjoy better gut health but also improved general health and wellbeing. Why? Because your gut health affects your immune system and energy levels, which has an impact on the rest of your body.

If you would like to learn more about how your gut health affects your overall well being, talk to Amanda Azzopardi during a free consultation. Call Amanda Azzopardi Aesthetics on 07444 938 248 or 0151 558 0742, or get in touch here.

How does the sun damage your skin?

The sun releases UV radiation, which over the years, ages your skin, causing its outermost layer (your stratum corneum) to thicken and harden. The result is tough, leathery skin.

How can you protect your skin from the sun?

Regular skin treatments can reduce the damaging effects of the sun but more important than treatment is prevention. This means wearing sunscreen every day to stop the sun’s harmful UV rays from reaching your skin cells.

What is the correct way to use sunscreen?

Wearing sunscreen correctly from childhood is vital to the long-term health of your skin, however, it is never too late to start.

Sunscreen works in 2 ways: by creating a physical barrier using zinc oxide to block the sun, which is why sunscreen forms a creamy, white paste, and by creating a chemical barrier to filter out damaging UV light.

To be effective, sunscreen needs to be frequently reapplied, especially after going in water or sweating profusely. The higher the SPF rating, the longer the protection you get.

The number after the SPF rating (e.g. SPF 10, SPF 20, SPF 50 etc) refers to how much longer you can stay out in the sun before your skin starts to redden compared with if you didn’t wear that sunscreen. For more on SPF ratings, read this from the Australian Academy of Science.

Is SPF makeup effective?

SPF makeup can give you a false sense of security. It doesn’t provide you with all-day protection any more than regular sunscreen does. This means you need to reapply your SPF makeup as often as you would regular sunscreen.

A helping hand

If you’re already struggling with skin problems through sun damage or otherwise, there are tailored aesthetics treatments that can reverse some of the ageing effects of the sun, pollutants and other factors, when combined with good skincare practice.

To find out which treatments will be most effective for your skin, book a one-to-one consultation at Amanda Azopardi Aesthetics by calling 07444 938 248 or 0151 558 0742, or getting in touch here.

What do you want?

Think about what you want to achieve with your body. Then think about how you can make that goal SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timebound

How can you achieve what you want?

Now it’s time to do some research. Lots of people swear by different diets and exercise regimes. But you need to figure out what will realistically work for you in the long term. It can help to speak to your GP, a dietitian and/or physical trainer.

Be kind to yourself

Making a positive change for your health is a fantastic step but it’s also a big commitment. You may have days where you slip up, so be kind to yourself. Turn to friends and family for support, and don’t forget to reward yourself for all the progress you make.
