Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. For most people, spending just a few minutes a day on a routine that uses a small variety of high quality, effective products can make a big difference. Below, you’ll find answers to some of the questions people have about how to care for their skin.
What are the most important parts of a skincare routine?
Since sun damage increases the risk of skin cancer, as well as skin problems ranging from wrinkles to dark spots, wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is essential. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen or another product with a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 15. Beyond that, it takes just a few minutes each morning and each evening to do the basics: washing with a gentle cleanser and applying a moisturizer to your face and neck.
How can I avoid wrinkles?
Wrinkles are a natural result of aging, but you can delay their onset or minimize their appearance. To do so, limit sun exposure, wear sunscreen every day, and use skin products that contain antioxidants and retinoids, which can reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
What should I do about dark spots?
UV exposure and hormonal changes are two causes of dark spots. Avoiding the sun, while exfoliating regularly may help treat the existing spots you already have. Certain dark spot correctors or moisturizers may also make a difference over time. Remember to choose the products that are formulated for your skin type.
How can I prevent aging skin?
As your skin loses elasticity and collagen, it naturally begins to appear wrinkled and saggy. By caring for it and focusing on prevention, you can minimize these issues. Consider using eye creams and other topical products that contain retinoids and antioxidants, which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
What’s the best way to handle sensitive skin?
Be gentle with it! Always wash sensitive skin gently, and never use harsh cleansers. Avoid products that contain irritating substances. Instead, seek out those that are specifically labeled for sensitive skin.
How do I know if a product is right for me?
Sometimes, there is no way to tell for sure unless you try it. Usually, however, you can make an educated guess by examining the product’s label and ingredient list. To increase the chance that products won’t irritate your skin, seek out those that are fragrance-free, contain little or no alcohol, and are labeled “suitable for sensitive skin”.
How can I fix an uneven skin tone?
An uneven skin tone is caused by an uneven distribution of pigment. Sun exposure and hormonal changes can also contribute to this issue. Certain serums, creams or moisturizers, especially those that contain vitamin C, can all help to even out your skin tone.
What is High Frequency treatment?
High frequency beauty treatments uses machines to generates an electrical current that has a gentle and safe, oscillating oxygenating power. This high rate of oscillation produces heat and tones the skin, leaving it relaxed and rejuvenated.
Will I feel the electrical current on my skin from the High Frequency treatment?
High frequency is a low-level oscillating current that can be very soothing, relaxing and revitalizing. A slight tingling or zapping will be felt during treatment. Facial sensitivity rates vary from individual to individual.
Who is this High Frequency device for?
The system is designed for spa and salon professionals. Whether you are looking for a tool to fight the signs of aging, or a one and for all solution to acne breakouts, it is a safe, natural and gentle alternative to expensive cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery and harsh acne topicals.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical, non-invasive method of skin resurfacing that utilizes fine crystals to provide effective exfoliation and rejuvenation of the superficial layers of the skin.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
The skin is washed to remove excess oil and dirt. Then, a medical professional target a stream of fine aluminum oxide crystals over the area. The crystals abrade away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new, rejuvenated skin.
Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and common procedure. Unlike laser resurfacing or chemical peels, this procedure is not traumatic and therefore there is no downtime to allow for healing and recovery.
What is LED light therapy?
LED Light Therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive, soothing and rejuvenating skin treatment. The basic premise of LED skin therapy is that different colors trigger different reactions beneath the epidermis, and penetrate the skin at varying depths.
Do different LED colors have different effects on the skin?
Yes. For example, Blue light is generally used to kill the bacteria that causes acne, providing an effective treatment for blackheads and whiteheads, whereas wavelengths of red light are normally used to speed up healing and stimulate collagen production, simultaneously shrinking enlarged pores and tightening the skin.
Is LED therapy right for everyone?
Almost everyone benefits from light therapy. However, those who have a slow metabolism or sluggish cellular activity will have the greatest results.
