Skin Therapy 101
Spring has arrived, and with the re-awakening of nature we also feel the need to renew and regenerate. During the rough winter months our skin has had to fight the elements, and now it’s time to give it a much-needed boost! Let’s look at some basic skin care services and products that can help you bring healthy glow to your face.
Healthy skin begins with thorough cleansing. Dirt, extraneous particles, excess oil and previously applied products need to be thoroughly removed from the surface of your skin. One challenge with cleansing is that most available cleansers are much too tough on skin. It is important to remember that your skin should not feel dry after cleansing. Our non-irritating SkinMedica® cleanser will gently remove all the debris without leaving you with a feeling of dryness.
If your skin is prone to acne, SkinMedica® has a deep cleansing formula that will reduce breakouts and balance skin’s pH to help prevent future problems.
You will need a toner if you still feel that your skin is oily and sticky after cleansing. Alcohol-based toners remove all the oil from the skin creating creates dryness, which stimulates skin to produce even more oil. Our pH balanced SkinMedica® toners will help you avoid this “catch 22” by gently clarifying your skin while preserving its oil balance.
If you have large pores, a good cleansing will help keep your pores clean and improve your skin’s appearance with time.
While oily skin doesn’t usually need moisturizing, normal and dry skin will definitely benefit from it. A good moisturizer can reduce the appearance of fine lines by replenishing the skin with water and making it look more youthful and plump. Make sure to use an oil-free cream that won’t clog the pores. SkinMedica® hydrating moisturizers deliver a unique blend of ingredients that will improve your skins tone and texture.
Last but not least on our list is sunscreen. Unfortunately many people still skip this important step. Did you now that most of the sun damage happens in deeper layers of your skin and is invisible to the naked eye? It’s hard to accurately estimate the damage caused by UV radiation, but we know that it accrues and that even short-term exposure can result in permanent changes including wrinkles, dark spots and even skin cancer. To minimizethese, make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis. SkinMedica® sun protection lotions can reduce the risk of skin cancer and help preserve the youthful appearance by repelling pollutants.
Our SkinMedica® line works hard to stimulate the skin’s natural healing capacities. SkinMedica® products deliver vital ingredients which help skin fight the signs of aging. The unique combination of potent ingredients includes vitamins C, E and retinol, as well as collagen, antioxidants and proteins. SkinMedica® line of products creates a rejuvenating effect by reducing age spots and improving the texture and firmness of the skin.
With purchase of a SkinMedica® product you will receive a free skin care consultation with our expert esthetician.
If you feel that your skin could use more assistance, consider Obagi. Our Obagi Nu-Derm® System is a state-of-the-art skin care line that packs a powerful rejuvenating punch and can only be prescribed by a professional. Obagi works in deeper layers of skin, encouraging the renewal of its cells and reducing the sun damage, which is the leading cause of wrinkles.
