Have you ever wondered what the largest organ in your body is? SKIN.
So why wouldn't you take care of yours?
Your skin is your first line of defense and it provides protection from the surrounding environment, prevents water loss which is optimal for body function, helps regulate body temperature, allows you to detect sensations such as hot or cold, and is your main source to absorb Vitamin D. Healthy skin, Healthy body.
Starting from birth, skin is a huge part of our appearance and how it makes us feel looking in the mirror. Both men and women struggle with good skin health because it’s usually not preached at an early age to use good skin care products, sunscreen, or receive monthly facial treatments. Any type of facial treatment, for example, is essentially like a workout for your face. Just like taking care of your body by exercising, eating right, and staying hydrated, skin care and facials are a must. In addition to caring for your skin on the surface, your skin requires internal health. Reducing the consumption of dairy, gluten, fried foods, sodas, alcohol, coffee and smoking will cause little to no breakouts, dryness, and premature aging. The key to happy skin is water and lots of it.
Why is at home skin care so important?
Believe it or not but the use of good skin care at home is going to be the main source of where most of your results will come from. After investing all this money (and yes it's not cheap) towards your monthly services, if you are not doing the work at home, you are wasting your time! Asking your aesthetician about which products are best for you is important because most skin care brands that you see in stores have fillers and synthetics listed in the ingredients. Those ingredients don't benefit you at all but actually damage your skin even more.
Don’t cheap out on your home care!
A great daily home care regime should include the following twice daily:
Sunscreen is going to be your best friend. How come? Well, think of it like a chicken in an oven. You put the chicken in and it cooks, no protection on the skin whatsoever. That's what happens to us when we are either walking outside, driving, or doing any outdoor activities without your spf protection. The sun has two different rays- UVA and UVB. UVA is the aging ray and UVB is the burning ray. That is why over time we begin to notice hyperpigmentation, cherry angiomas, and wrinkles surfacing on our skin. Sunscreen is the utmost important part of your skin care routine and needs to be reapplied every two hours.
