What is the secret to healthy, good looking skin? Good skin takes commitment!
Skin is more than just your protection from the elements. If you’ve taken good care of your skin with proper diet and hydration, it will stay young and smooth- looking for years. On the other hand, if you’ve spent too much time in the sun or given little thought to your skin’s health, it’ll certainly reflect that lack of attention.
“Good things come from consistent, correct effort over time.”
Results won’t happen overnight, possibly not even in days. To start to see any real, lasting results you’ll need to consistently follow your skin care program for at least a couple weeks and at that point you can begin to see the first benefits of your good skin care routine.
Time works wonders and the best results will come when good skin care becomes a part of your daily routine, giving your skin the best care year after year.
To have the best in life always requires motivation, dedication, hard work and commitment. These same principles apply to your cosmetic health. To have perfect skin takes a lot of commitment and dedication. Healthy skin is an investment that requires time and money. It’s something you have to consistently work for, but the payoff is priceless.
As a reminder, not everyone is blessed with flawless skin. With realistic expectations, a commitment to personalized daily skin care and regular facial treatments you will have significant improvements in the quality of your skin.
“You can’t stop aging but you can slow down the process of aging.”
Receiving regular facial treatments will keep your skin clear of blemishes, smooth in texture and delay the appearance of signs of aging. This commitment will need to include your home care routine, healthy life style, diet, activity, the type of makeup you use, etc.
Consulting with a skin care professional will be very beneficial as far asgetting educated about your skin type, evaluating your skin’s condition, setting goals and determining the best skin care regime and treatments to receive maximum results.
Healthy skin is an investment and one of the first things people will notice about you. Most importantly, once you have developed your skin care routine you should stick to it religiously. Don’t ever skip a day of your daily skin care regime. Consistency is crucial to having healthy skin.
Remember, excellent skin requires commitment and dedication, not a miracle. Every morning and evening, you should devote some time to take care of your skin. 5 minutes or less is all you need.
For those of you, who have put little previous time or effort into your skin, start small. A good quality cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen takes less than a minute of your day and will add years to a younger looking you.
A piece of advice: you will see much better results and save more money in the long run if you use prescription grade, reputable skin care product lines that are not available for purchase over the counter.
Making a commitment to your skin, is not just essential for your appearance but can lead a healthier life in general. Here are some tips to start having younger looking and healthier skin:
• Moisturize often
Your body needs certain nutrients to function properly. That same concept holds true for your skin; giving it the right nutrients not only helps skin to look more appealing but also to function more effectively.
• Smoke free
Not only is smoking bad for your heart and lungs, it can prove quite detrimental to your skin as well. Smoking can restrict blood flow to the skin, thus limiting the number of available nutrients. Plus, the repetitive gestures associated with smoking, like lip pursing, can prove just as damaging to otherwise healthy skin. Smoking not only dries out the skin, causing wrinkles, but can leave you looking especially gaunt and tired.
• Manage your sun exposure
While you don’t have to give up on sun exposure, it’s important that you take steps to limit it to better protect your skin. Avoid the sun during its hours of peak intensity, usually between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you do go outside, be sure to buy sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Whenever you’re outside, be sure to wear the proper head and eyewear, as both parts are especially vulnerable to ultraviolet (UV) rays.
• Balanced diet and more water
Following the right diet that is heavy in fruits, colorful vegetables,low in unhealthy fats and various dairy products and minimum of 8 glasses of water a day can go a long way to improving the overall look and function of your skin.
• Sleep more effectively
Not only does not getting enough sleep negatively affect your body, it decreases the moisture levels in your skin, and lowers your complexion’s pH levels, which is why your skin looks less youthful and has less of a glow.
• Treat yourself
Massages and facials aren’t just relaxing. They’re a great way to improve the appearance of your skin.
