4-Steps To Better, Healthy Skin
No matter how well formulated, not one skin care product can by itself, repair all damage caused by acne, sun, the aging process or hyperpigmentation. WHY? Because these products, need to be able to penetrate the skin to be effective.
Step 1 Cleanse
You want to start your daily skin care regimen by cleansing your skin. Cleansing the skin rids it of dirt, excess sweat, unwanted micro-organisms and their metabolic products. We carry mild to aggressive cleansers, the choice is yours. Benzoyl Peroxide based cleansers work by destroying P. acnes (Propionibacterium acnes), the bacteria that causes acne. By utilizing its anti-bacterial properties, these cleansers help reduce the number of comedones, blackheads and clogged pores.
Second, tone the skin. The most important reason you should tone after cleansing is to prepare the skin for precise absorption of skin conditioners. The toning process dissolves dead skin cells remaining after cleansing. It also clears residue contaminants and helps to better control oil production through the astringent effect.
Tonics will leave your skin feeling tight, clean, and fresh and will help to prevent future breakouts caused by environmental conditions. We offer a wide range of toners; from mild and soothing to moderate and aggressive.
Step-3 Skin Rejuvenation
Third, cell rejuvenation. The process of cellular rejuvenation is key to achieving better, healthy skin. The rejuvenation occurs when exfoliation is accelerated to stimulate the growth of fresh new cells more rapidly than the body’s normal cycle. This cell renewal time is shortened from 28 days to between 10 and 15 days.
The cell layers on the surface of the epidermis are reduced from 14 layers of impacted cells to 7 or 8 loosely woven layers, giving skin a rosy hue and healthy glow. As a result of this rapid exfoliation, the skin begins to function once again like adolescent skin. Blemishes, fine lines, blotchy skin, leathery skin texture, dryness, roughness, and wrinkles are improved giving the skin a more youthful appearance.
Step-4 Protect and Moisturize
Fourth, protect and moisturize the skin. By doing all the previous steps, your skin is especially susceptible to the harmful rays of the sun and environmental pollutants. So be sure to moisturize and shield it. The protection step is vital in completing the cycle of skin rejuvenation reducing further photodamage.
