Skin care has been around for a very long time, some say back even to the Egyptians, because we know that how we treat our skin is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has stated that using skin care products and having the knowledge of how to use them can deter many common skin problems, premature signs of aging and even skin cancer. Quality ingredients in your skin care products will help to build resiliency and promote healthy skin; while poor ingredients can dry your skin out, cause breakouts, and lead to long-term damage.
- Your skin is only as healthy as the products you apply.
While some popular products may have designer packaging and celebrity endorsements, it doesn’t mean that the ingredients are of any quality. Take time to consider the ingredients that are in the products you are applying to your skin. There are two main types of ingredients found in skin care – Cosmetic Grade and Pharmaceutical Grade. The latter of these two exceeds US quality standards and is also more highly refined, removing bacteria and impurities from the products. Your skin will benefit, both short and long term, from using better ingredients. Looking like a million bucks is worth the extra pennies it may cost you.
2. Your skin is your body’s largest organ
Your skin’s appearance is a gauge to your general health. Radiant and healthy complexion’s mirror the health of your body on the inside and reflects a healthy lifestyle. Nourishing your skin with quality products is just as important as taking vitamins, drinking water and eating healthy foods.
3. Protection from damaging environmental agitators
Quality moisturizers and body products help to seal your skin, both retaining important moisture content and sealing out damaging particles and products that may be in the environment, like pollution, dust, even UVA and UVB rays. Your skin is your defense system against foreign substances that can make you sick or cause irreversible damage to your body. Skin is nourished and strengthened by the products you apply, make sure you are protecting this natural barrier and promoting healthy skin for your long-term health.
4. Help fight the looks of Aging
Moisture content is key to keeping your skin looking young, but more important, healthy. Starting skin care at a young age helps to defy some of the aging effects on our skin. However, it’s never too late to start! Fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, discoloration, dryness and problem skin, that can start as early as the late 20’s, can all be cared for with a dedicated skin care regiment. Quality products will help to alleviate some of the concerns about aging while nourishing and restoring your skin’s vitality.
5. How you feel about yourself and your appearance effects your quality of life
First impressions really do matter. When you meet someone new, they will make their first judgment about you within a matter of seconds to minutes. Skin care is important to help you give your very best first impression. Your opinion of how you feel also projects onto others- if you are feeling great and looking good, your confidence will shine!
