Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to show your skin some love!
They say that before you can love someone else you must first learn to love yourself. We all have annoying habits and body hang-ups, but one of the hardest things to love can be your skin, particularly because other people are looking at your face all day! In fact, a recent study found that around half of the population in the US struggles with a skin condition at some point in their lives and a large percentage of these people also develop low confidence and self-esteem as a result. Of course, all different skin types and concerns need individualized treatments. But, as a general rule, here are some of the ways you can start to love your skin:
Did you know that skin is the largest organ of the body? With that in mind, it’s important we treat it with care to make the most of it. Yes, it’s true our skin is built to withstand a lot! But don’t over-estimate just how much it can take.
Constant scrubbing, polishing and exfoliating can strip the skin of its natural oils that make up the protective outer layer, leaving it vulnerable to damage and becoming over sensitized. Avoid over-use of stripping products and opt for a more natural method of exfoliation such as Vitamin A, in the form of Retinol or Retinoic Acid.
Vitamin A can act as a natural exfoliant – increasing skin cell turnover and renewal, while reducing the thickness of the outer “dead” skin cell layer. Consider one of our iS ClINICAL products which have Vitamin A in them. They are formulated with botanically-based ingredients which are naturally soothing and nourishing.
Keep in mind, Vitamin-A derivatives are also very anti-aging, anti-skin cancer and anti-wrinkle, long-term. So, consider this as part of your anti-aging skin care routine for life!
