Sorry to bust your bubble, BUT let's be honest, you aren't getting any younger, and the health of your skin 30 years down the road depends on the way you treat and take care of it NOW. Most women don't start taking action UNTIL they see their first wrinkle, but your skin starts aging much before that. This is why the sooner you incorporate a skincare routine, the better. So, let's talk about why a skincare regimen is important and how you can go about starting one if you haven't already.
Our skin is our largest organ, and we often forget to give it the care and attention it deserves. Your daily skincare regimen should be one that cleanses, corrects, hydrates, and protects your skin from external and internal elements. Our skin never stops working as a barrier to protect our bodies from physical and chemical injuries along with a host of other unpleasant sensations, so setting aside a few minutes each day to tend to our skin seems like the least we could do. After all, you'll be wearing it for the rest of your life.
Since our skin is constantly regenerating and shedding dead skin cells it may look healthy and vibrant one day, but it can easily look dull and tired the next. Our skin has sebaceous glands that produce naturally hydrating oils and a built-in process called desquamation that constantly produces new skin cells while shedding the old. The dead cells break away from the epidermis and fall off, making room for newer cells growing up from below. It takes approximately one month for new cells to get all the way to the top layer, which means one month from now you will have a completely new layer of skin. Mind blowing, huh? Want to know something even crazier? It is said that you lose around 1 million skin cells each DAY. And where do you think all of those skin cells go? They are leaving a trail ALL around you! That irritating build up of dust you see in your house is mostly made up of dead skin cells. I don't know about you, but I have always wondered how my furniture got so dusty, and now it all makes sense!
Taking care of your skin NOW can help prevent problems like acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, deep wrinkles, or any other skin issues that may arise. This is why maintaining a daily skincare routine is CRUCIAL to helping you maintain the healthy, glowing skin you desire. Since your face is the first part of your body others look at, having nice skin will make a big difference in your appearance, and will actually boost your confidence. Sounds like a win, win to me!
Unfortunately, you won't achieve healthy youthful skin overnight. Consistency, routine, and patience is key. Your skin takes time and a consistent routine to give it the nourishment it needs. All skin is not created equal, and there are a lot of factors that affect our individual skin health which means everyone's maintenance level is not the same. Knowing your skin type and needs is what will help you reach your goal and maintain healthy, beautiful skin.
No matter your skin type, your regimen should include a cleanser (to wash away bacteria, dirt, & oil), toner (to cleanse, hydrate, and balance your skin's PH), serum (hydrates & treats specific skin concerns), exfoliant (removes dead skin cells), sunscreen (helps protect from sun damage), and moisturizer (lubricates and protects). The exact products or number of may vary depending on the time of day, but nonetheless those 6 products are a necessity in everyone's daily routine. If your skin requires extra attention than you can add multiple serums, masks, etc. I mean you can't really have too many skincare products, can you? We sure don't think so!
We have put together an information section on our website so you are able to see exactly what your skin needs, as well as formulated products specifically for each skin type. BUT skincare isn't always a one size fits all, so sometimes there is trial and error. That's why we are here every step of the way to help you take the guesswork out of your routine! We all know that beauty is only skin deep, but having well-maintained and glowing skin is an indicator of your overall health and well-being. Afterall, glowing skin is always in!
And always remember,
"Life is full of tough choices, but your beauty routine shouldn't be one of them."
