Help skin look and feel more youthful

October 13th, 2010

 

Most guests are interested in eliminating or minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. The first line of defense is a good sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. This should be used daily and as needed as you are out in the sun.

A quality skin care line and regimen is also necessary to achieving and maintaining skin that looks and feels youthful. Treating the surface of your skin with the skin care products it needs and deserves is the only way to truly care for it. You cannot rely only on drinking water as we do not and cannot drink enough water to properly benefit the skin. In fact, it’s said that if we drink a gallon of water, only 2 tablespoons would get to the skin.

Are you still using the same skin care line you used when you were in your teens or early twenties? Stop that right now! As we age we need to tailor our skin care regimen to work with the current condition of our skin. Many things change as we age. For instance, the skin mantel builds up and prevents products from penetrating in. This needs to be broken down with an exfoliating product, microdermabrasion or skin peel.

One of the most sought after skin care results we hear from guests is that they want their skin to have a healthy glow and regain suppleness. A regimen of HydroPeptide, Rhonda Allison, or SkinCeuticals products will help grant this wish by plumping up skin cells, accelerating cellular skin turnover, and increasing collagen production – which all slow down as we age.

A healthy diet and exercise will also benefit your skin. Our skin is the biggest organ and the most neglected. When we have a healthy lifestyle, it shines through. Conversely, without a healthy lifestyle, even the thickest makeup cannot cover neglected areas or make them look better.
