Get ready to wipe away the sun damage




By Jill O'Donoghue from Killarney Toning and Beauty Studio

It's time to get ready to wipe away the summer damage and even skin complexion after months of sun exposure.


There's no need for aggressive chemical peels when you can rid dull skin with a CACI Rejuvenating facial with microdermabrasion and LED light therapy and ETR (Enhanced Tissue Repair).

It will help to reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce those sun spots, acne scars and acne. It can also help to minimise pore size. Microdermabrasion uses a minimal abrasive instrument to gently resurface your skin, removing the thicker uneven outer layers and has many benefits. We use microdermabrasion for skin rejuvenation to treat light scarring, discolouration, sun damage and white heads. It's a great facial for men's skin type also.

It's well known that too much sun can affect the elasticity of the skin. This can show ageing signs earlier especially if the skin gets burnt. The sun is important for our bodies; it helps with production of vitamin D, and improves sleep quality and our mood - so don't deprive yourself of the sun but always wear SPF all year round.

For men, especially being outside or exposed to various environments, toxins are rough on the skin and facial skin is affected the most. Too much sun, wind, or debris can overwhelm skin pores and leave it looking and feeling congested.

Crow's feet often occur because of too much ultra violet exposure. Spending too much time in the sun can result in the loss of collagen and skin can begin to loosen over time.

Enhanced Tissue Repair (ETR) pads have an amazing healing effect and are used in burn units in hospitals. Recent scar tissue, fine lines and blemishes can be greatly improved by this technique. Clients notice their skin is more retentive of the products, therefore achieving a healthy glow. ETR is a continuous flow of microcurrent which helps to heal and repair.

LED light therapy is used to reduce swelling, decrease inflammation, and accelerate healing. Light therapy encourages collagen to stimulate and rebuild. The treatment is used to repair and rebuild which helps to rejuvenate the skin. The LED light therapy converts the light into energy to help stimulate cell growth for renewal, repair and rejuvenation.

With a cast of over 50 it’s no small undertaking – but that won’t deter one panto group who are only too happy to get back on stage this weekend.

It’s been two years since they staged a show due to COVID but the Marian Players Rathmore are rearing to go tomorrow night (Saturday) with their hilarious show ‘Dame Annie Goes West’.

A medley of comedy and colour, combined with music and dance, locals from both sides of the border have been working together to make it a great production.

“We’re very excited, we can’t wait! It’s great to be back,” Mary Hickey told the Killarney Advertiser.

“They [the cast] got together in October and they’re at it since.”

Val Moynihan is the “genius behind it”, she added, and it’s produced by her son Brian Hickey, and co-written with Eilish Coakley.

She said that they have loads working in the background also doing the stage curtains, lighting and making costumes amongst other tasks.

“It’s a pantomime without the pantomime in the background! It’s a whole community effort both sides of the border.”

Evening shows start at 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and again Sunday (January 29) at 3pm.

Mid-week shows continue on Wednesday next (February 1) at 7.30pm, Thursday (February 2) at 7.30pm and also Saturday (February 4) at 7.30pm and Sunday (February 5) at 3pm.

The booking office (085 2031730) will be open every day from 2pm to 6pm to reserve seats and collect tickets and is located adjacent to the community centre, next to Christy’s Take Away.

Seats may be reserved over the phone too and paid for using a bank card. All proceeds are going to Kerry Parents & Friends Association.
