Beautiful Skin Starts With Healthy Skin

The skin is the body's largest organ. As we age, all physiologic mechanisms slow down, and in the respect to our skin, both collagen and elastin production decrease resulting in skin laxity, wrinkles, and general signs of aging. Certain essential elements are required to combat this process that can be done right at home.

First, cleanse your skin regularly.

Second, always apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, ideally 45 or greater. Not only can the sun increase your risk of developing skin cancer but it can also cause fine and coarse wrinkles, freckles, discoloration of the skin, including, giving the skin a yellowish appearance, telangectasia (spider veins), and finally speed up the destruction of collagen and elastin.

Finally, hydrate your skin. To do this effectively, drink plenty of water, and eat foods high in antioxidants. Next you can apply a moisturizer to the skin itself, such as hyaluronic acid serum, which is absorbed directly into the skin thereby making the skin healthier and decreasing the appearance of fine lines.

For more damaged or aging skin you can jump-start the process in a number of ways. The simplest is by having a good facial skin care


Hydrating Facial with Vitamin C

A hydrating facial with vitamin C is best for sensitive skin. It also can improve rosacea and help rehydrate dry, damaged skin. It works through quenching the skin with essential vitamins, the building blocks of collagen, and ultra hydrates the skin, helping repair the aging skin through promoting healthy cell renewal.

Anti-Aging Facial

An anti-aging facial is formulated for the more damaged, pigmented skin. The use of glycolic acid helps with exfoliation, allowing the healthier underlying skin to come to the surface, thereby improving the skin's texture and tone. It also lightens and adds moisture to the skin, giving the skin an overall smoother appearance.

O2 Lift Facial

The O2 lift facial is an exciting facial which not only exfoliates, but also oxygenates and illuminates the skin while mildly tightening and improving the skin's tone.

This facial infuses oxygen, plant stem cells, peptides, and a high concentration of enzymatic botanicals into the skin giving the skin, an immediately healthy, uplifted glow.

Be good to your skin and help it stay healthy and you will maintain the youthful appearance you desire.
