Maintaining healthy looking skin starts with a skin analysis and it’s easier than you think. You can even do it in your lunch break!
We all have numerous skin care products that are taking up time and space in the bathroom. But are they the correct ones for our skin? Are there more effective ways to address skin concerns? Are we unknowingly sabotaging our skin?
Fact is, it might be time to strip your skin care products to the core, and focus on high quality, organic products that work synergistically and address your individual skin concerns. The attached price tag may also be surprisingly less than expected as you won’t be needing the latest hype and trend in skin care products.
Invest in a carefully selected number of skin care products that combine all the essential, active hero ingredients that penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before this can happen, we need to understand that even the best product cannot penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin if there is a barricade of dead skin blocking the way.
Think of it as an oily sponge.
Try to absorb spilled water using a sponge’s oily surface. Apart from being unhygienic, it won’t absorb a single drop unless you clear it of the oil first.
The same principle applies to the skin. With care and attention, we can clear our skin of dead skin cells and clogged pores allowing regeneration and time to heal while stimulating new skin cell growth.
With all the time and money saved, you can start treating your skin to regular salon facials and a professional skin analysis.
Victoria’s Secret Model, Candice Swanepoel swears by her monthly facial and some celebrities claim to go every week. For most of us, this might not be as easy to incorporate into our busy schedules.
However, visiting a beauty therapist for a professional facial once a month, or at least every two months is crucial to break the vicious cycle of dead skin cell build-up and must not be viewed as a luxury. Ideally, it should become a part of everyone’s skin care routine. A facial offers numerous benefits – not only from the treatment itself.
Even Harper Beckham, daughter of David and Victoria Beckham is starting her first facial treatments at the young age of 7. So, for all mother’s out there – here’s another great way to spend some time with your beautiful daughters, and sons, of course!
Unfortunately, not all of our skin concerns and skin damage show up in broad daylight and our mirror may be misleading us. Skin care specialists have their own tools such as the Woods Lamp to see what is happening beneath the surface of your skin far beyond what the naked eye can see.
It exposes sun damage, clogged pores, bacteria, dead skin cells and more.
All of those skin conditions are sabotaging even the best and highest quality skin care products.
