General Skin Product Information | Fundamentals of Skin careFacial skin care treatments involves many different things. Primarily, it is the most sensitive and yet, the most commonly treated area on your body.
The face is most susceptible to aging, loose skin, visible lines and wrinkles, and overall sagging. Complicating matters, skin around the eyes have unique requirements and problems. Puffiness, dark circles, excessive wrinkle development and spider veins - primarily from sun damage - add to a variety of skin issues.
Fundamental care of facial skin begins with cleansing. Often problems arise from lack of proper cleansing, frequent or over-use of cosmetics or makeup, chemical build-up and resulting irritation (from hair products, for example) lead to pre-mature aging, acne, rosacea, skin rashes, and discoloration.
Though often the treatment found in spas, exfoliating helps cell development by gently stripping away dead skin cells, destroying bacteria, reducing pore size, and dissolving oils (even reducing subaceous gland oil production).
Exfoliating at home is now simple, easy and safe. many products, like Microderm Abrasion Cream, give spa-quality results with added active ingredients without costly peel or exfoliating procedures.
Finally, moisturizing and providing hydration is essential to healthy skin. It goes without saying that cell growth relies primarily on water and fluid availability. Dry skin is inhibited from proper regeneration and lacks the ability to carry proteins, nutrients, peptides, and vitamins to the cells...all necessary in healthy growth.
Aloe Vera, Emu Oil, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, active copper and other ingredients may be touted as magical ingredients, but there is no such thing as magic. You facial skin care is a function of giving the face and skin the quality nutrients Omega 3's and anti oxidants it needs and keeping the toxin levels down. It's really that simple.
There are three steps in the skin care process:
- Cleanse The key to face cleansers is to test them out until you find one that works. Then, stick with it. The biggest mistake people make is switching cleansers. And remember, a big price does not mean a better skin care product.
- Exfoliate Most people skip the process of exfoliation, which means scrubbing your skin and removing dead skin cells. Exfoliating skin once a week with a microderm abrasion cream keeps skin looking great.
- Moisturize Everyone should moisturize their skin, because they seal moisture into the skin. Makes sense right?
