Caring for your skin should be like any other aspect of health and wellness – part of your routine. Just as you wouldn’t expect to become fit without regular exercise, you shouldn’t expect your skin to look its best without regular upkeep. Often, beautiful skin is the result of a strong skin care regimen.
When skin is dull and unhealthy, a regimen is even more vital. In this post, discover the 5-fold path to rejuvenating skin’s appearance. Integrate these practices into your skin’s upkeep to restore your skin to healthy, glowing and beautiful.
CLEANSE & TONE → Eliminate dirt, oil and breakouts.
To start, cleansing products are essential. When skin is clean, it absorbs your other products better, so this step is the foundation of your entire regimen.
Because skin repairs itself at night, a nighttime cleansing is best. Apply clinical cleansing products before bed directly to clean skin, below your moisturizer. By the way, don’t forget your moisturizer!
PREVENT → Early intervention prevents premature aging.
Clear + Brilliant® laser treatments provide an incredible boost to skin health. If you’re investing in regular peels and products but aren’t getting the desired results, Clear + Brilliant® can come to the rescue. Unlike fractional lasers, Clear + Brilliant® is gentler and penetrates less deeply. It is especially effective for individuals who wish to repair fine lines or just enhance the tone and texture of their skin – think youthful glow! There is no downtime with this laser treatment, and it can be done during the summer because it doesn’t attack pigmentation like other laser treatments.
CORRECT → Help heal your skin with powerful serums and antioxidants.
Vitamin C helps protect your skin from environmental damage and provides powerful antioxidants that fight signs of aging – even those that have already appeared.
CE Ferulic® is a daytime C serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, corrects loss of firmness and brightens your complexion.
MOISTURIZE → Moisturize every day.
Daily moisturizing can reduce both extreme dryness and oiliness. Both are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne.
The most important times to use moisturizer are after a bath, shave or exfoliation. Moisturizing after a shower is very important, because while soothing, hot water strips the oils right out of your skin, leaving it parched and dry. Never skip the moisturizer afterwards!
What’s our recommended moisturizer? Epionce® is an ultra-rich cream that can improve the appearance of severely dry, damaged, and aged skin. An ideal night cream, it contains maximum levels of key complexes to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Keep your summer skin hydrated—especially while you sleep!
PROTECT → SPF
Prevent fine lines from turning into deep wrinkles and protect your skin from melasma and sun spots! Sunscreen helps block harmful UV rays and protects the collagen in your skin from damage.
