Advanced skin care is all about using only quality products and setting a regimen for morning and evening that you follow religiously. Skin care, when taken seriously, can have long term benefits for both your appearance and your overall health.
Here is my list of the top ten advanced skin care regimens, starting with my favorite for feel-good skin, exfoliation, and going on to #1:
First step to great skin is to remove all the dead skin cells and impurities with a great exfoliation. A smooth skin allows for the absorption of vitamins and serums you place on your skin, so make sure to always start with a clean slate. Try a gentle leave on exfoliant that will even skin tone and unclog pores, leaving radiant skin behind!
What better way than to cleanse your skin with nature’s elements? Try a cleansing soap with unique and beneficial ingredients and you will realize that this is what cleansing should be about: glycerin, authentic volcano mud, exfoliating oatmeal, plus a variety of herbal oils will soothe your skin and nourish your body.
If your skin is extremely sensitive, find a soother that will calm it and allow you to restore your skin’s barrier of sensitivity. The calming extracts in this serum will calm your skin from redness and irritation.
7. Super boost
A super boaster, made with ingredients like Raspberry Extract, Chamomile, Linden and other herbal extracts, will give your skin that concentrated help it needs. Infuse your skin and replenish much needed extracts, soothing your skin all while doing so.
Your skin is mainly made up of water, so make sure to replenish its thirst with of fluids, in the form of moisturizers and lotions. During the hot months, your skin loses liquids through the constant sweating, so make sure to drink enough water and wear sunscreen when outside. During the winter months, depending on your climate, you skin might dry out. Prevent this by thinking ahead and preparing your skin with moisturizers and lotions before the cold season hits.
5. Remember your eyes
The skin around your eyes is composed of the most delicate, thin layers of skin and needs extra care. Make sure to use eye creams specifically for eyes, as to not over saturate the area.
Wear sunscreen: As simple as that and you will not only prevent premature aging wrinkles, but skin cancer is on the rise with the huge market for tanning beds. Make sure to wear a high enough SPF, not only on beach days but every single day. If you want to save a step in your beauty ritual, buy a moisturizer that includes SPF.
Regenerate your skin’s surface with the revolutionary technologies in skin care that will improve your skin’s clarity and firmness. Look for moisturizers and serums that not only hydrate, but assist your skin’s natural ability to regenerate surface cells.
Your skin needs specific nutrients that might not be absorbed through the dermis layer but by vitamin intake. L-Carnitine promotes growth and development, not only of your skin but of your organs that need constant care.
Prevention is key in skin care and prevention encompasses everything from sun care to wrinkle prevention. Find ingredients that work for your skin and stick by them. Remember that the key to a successful skincare regimen is consistency, and that a routine that incorporates quality beauty products into your every day life will reap benefits for your skin.
