Every new year we start out with new things we want to do to better in our lives. Exercise more, eat healthier, and look younger. TV, magazines and the Internet are saturated with ways to do the first two, so what are some things we can do for our skin?
Hydration is firstly and largely the most important thing we can do for our bodies, including the skin. Did you know the skin is the largest organ of the human body? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day. (Read more on the Mayo Clinic’s website)
If you don’t already have one now is a great time to start a skincare regimen! Everything we do, or don’t do, for our skin now will prove itself over time. Ideally we start an regimen in our 30’s but it’s never too late! A through yet gentle cleanser, quality moisturizer with penetrating emollients and an effective anti-aging serum are critical components to your regimen. The final step is a physical sun block product that will protect your skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays, a great one is the Bio-Fond Foundation from GS products that is also light weight foundation coverage!
If you already have a skincare regimen (way to go!), is it time to tweak it or find new balance? Over time our skin will change and transition into different skin types (oily vs combination vs dry), texture and appearance. Use this new year to enhance your regimen to find the products that will help us traverse these changes with grace and fight any pesky signs of aging skin!
Do you have something to pamper your skin a few times a week? There are dozens of DIY facial tutorials online but often these can lead to clogged pores, sticky solutions that peel your skin or unhealthy ingredients that can cause irreversible damage. Instead treat your skin with products that are formulated by professionals, tested in laboratories and have the seal of approval from doctors, dermatologists and estheticians from all over the world. GS products are Swiss made and have received the Swiss Crossbow of Excellence, a skincare company for over 70 years providing you with the best, high quality products and ingredients available.
