You know that means it is the month of LOVE! – and what better way to show some love than to the largest organ you have; YOUR SKIN. Everyone has the desire to have clear and healthy skin but not many want to take the time out to do what it takes to get it. Now before you start rolling your eyes at me and giving me the deep sighs, just listen.
There are TWO things you need to make certain your skin is healthy – an amazing esthetician and a great at home skin care regimen. That’s it – nothing more but definitely nothing less. Between your daily at home regimen and monthly visits with a professional, your results will be truly amazing. GREAT SKIN IS AN INVESTMENT! Let me break down the ‘Why’:
Everyday we go out into the elements and gather debris in our pores – EVERYDAY! With that clogging of pores, you are more prone to breakouts. Now, do understand, the breakouts will not happen immediately but if you do not clean that debris out of your pores, you will eventually get breakouts from it. Here is where your at home care comes in. Every night, you should wash, tone and hydrate at the MINIMUM. A great deep cleansing facial cleanser will get all the debris out of your pores that you collected throughout the day and give your skin that fresh start it needs for the next day; which in turn prevents the breakouts I was speaking of prior. Follow up with a toner which will prep your skin for the treatment (serums) and moisturizer and PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO HYDRATE the skin. Weekly treatment masks and scrubs are always an added plus and can aid in amazing results.
Professional treatments, at least once a month, will keep your skin in the best shape it can be. If you suffer from severe acne, blackheads or just need an extra boost for that glow in your skin, find yourself a great esthetician and thank me later. They will look further than the eye can see and extract anything that is causing issues. The expertise they offer as well as the level of treatments is the icing on the cake to a great at home system.
Whether you ‘don’t really have skin issues’ or have severe skin issues, take heed to these two main keys and start LOVING THE SKIN YOU’RE IN!
