Secrets of Great Skin Products is their Molecular Form
of Retinol, Niacinamide, Peptides, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acids.
If your skin care products contain the right amounts of Retinol, Niacinamide, Peptides, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acids for your specific skin type, you are off to the right start. Aside from having those key ingredients, most chemists will tell you that it's more about the form and functionality of those ingredients. There will always be the latest and greatest antioxidant ingredient of the month to add to the basic formulas, but most ingredients are not in the right molecular form to be absorbed optimally. Spend a little more money and purchase the purest and most specific formulated products for your individual skin type and environment. Most products take months to achieve noticeable results. The television shopping networks hawking their overnight sensational and instant result creams are mostly all hype.
If the outermost layer of the skin is improperly cleansed with a soap product, everything else you then apply will most likely become corrupted and less effective. So, start with a "soap-less" cleanser to rid the skin of impurities, debris and bacteria. Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face. At night, wash and use a toner you like. I would recommend looking for one that is alcohol-free. Then apply a night cream, ideally containing retinol with a good antioxidant.
The T-zone of your face is usually oilier than the rest of your face. It is easy to avoid moisturizing these areas when you moisturize the rest of your face. You should also apply toner or products with salicylic acid to the T-zone without applying it to the cheeks or the dry areas of the face. The body tends to be very dry, especially the lower legs, so it's important to use a cream rather than lotion in this area.
Along with the best skin care regimen that you can afford, concentrate on improving your diet for skin and tissue health. Look for foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids such as almonds and salmon. Olive oil is also excellent for the skin. There are studies that show that Mediterranean diets and diets high in citrus fruits help keep the skin looking younger and also help against skin cancer. I would also recommend avoiding foods that are highly processed and high in refined sugar -- these are pro-inflammatory for the skin and accelerate the aging process. Avoid excess alcohol which is dehydrating to the skin.
Visit your Dermatologist before you start going for spa treatments. Have your doctor give you the okay for procedures that require protracted healing times. Peels and masks for exfoliating are all very different. Dr. Roy Shapiro, an Aesthetics expert and lecturer, recommends less aggressive treatment protocols with a greater frequency of encounters. His combination treatments of laser, phototherapy, mesotherapy and home topicals have found their way into most better Medical Spas and Salons around the world.
