Top 5 Tips For Getting Healthy, Glowing, Youthful Skin

MTMH: TOP 5 TIPS FOR HEALTHY, GLOWING, YOUTHFUL SKIN!

STEP 1. INVEST IN A QUALITY SERUM

Serums are far more concentrated that cream or lotion, so you can get away with applying a small amount of a high quality serum daily to see results in your skin. Start by searching for a seum with antioxidants (the skin’s major defense against free radicals and stress) and pentapeptides, which are a must-have when it comes to boosting collagen, the support structure that gives skin a firm, youthful appearance. For best results, apply to freshly cleaned skin and follow with a moisturizer to lock in hydration.

We recommend the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating ACE Serum which is an advanced polypeptide/antioxidant formula including vitamins A, C, E to promote hydration & reduce signs of aging (paraben free).

STEP 2. GET YOUR BEAUTY REST

“Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale & washed out if you only get a few hours” says Amy Wechsler, one of only two U.S. physicians board-certified in both dermatology and psychiatry. It’s actually the best time to rejuvenate your skin. “Your body’s cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this if when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it needs to do a fine job.”

STEP 3. DRINK SOME MORE WATER

“Water helps clear the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes,” explains Eliaz. “It alo assists in transporting nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells, preventing dehydration, which can causepremature aging.” Lack of hydration from water can even make skin appear fuller due to the hyaluronic acid, which naturally exists in skin, that will pull in & retain water for a wrinkle-plumping effect. We recommend drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day, more if you’re active or live in a warmer climate. Bonus: Try drinking some skin-soothing tea in the morning like chamomile or mint!

STEP 4. GENTLE EXFOLIATION IS KEY

Stop in a pick up the Image Skincare Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Masque which works to gently exfoliate the buildup of dull, dry skin. Nourishing Vitamins A,C, A hydrating enzyme masque that gently exfoliates the buildup of dull, dry skin. Nourishing Vitamins A, C, and E promote healthier, more radiant youthful skin.

“Over time, the natural enzymes in your skin work less effectively at removing dead skin cells, so they hang on and prevent your skin from reflecting light,” says Wechsler. What’s the result? You end up looking ashy and gray. Instead, speed up your skin’s cellular turnover and smooth its surface with apha-hydroxy acids (AHA) like glycolic acid or lactic acid.

Beware, despite the fact that a lot of products include AHA’s, the concentration is often far too low to do much for your skin. Wechsler suggests, “Look at the label to see how much it contains and pick one that’s around 8%. Anything more is too much.” Expect some initial stinging at first, it should subside as your skin gets used to it.

STEP 5. STAY OUT OF HOT WATER

Sure, a steaming hot shower may feel great, but it’s one of the worst things you can do for your skin. Not only can this strip essential oils from the skin, but it also creates a mild burn. In turn, blood vessels respond by dilating in an effort to cool the skin, causing flushing and ruddiness. “When you’re in your twenties, you can take a hot shower, bed red & swollen and recover in an hour. However, in your thirties it may take 2 hours.” says Alexiades-Armenakas. “By your forties, your skin just doesn’t have the ability to shrink back to its original state so you stay ruddy all the time.”

How To Get Good Skin

MTMH: ALL ABOUT SKIN CARE

Facials Music To My Hair

Facials are much more than an hour of pampering; they’re actually a vital part of your skin’s health. Facials are beneficial to the look & feel of your skin, both in the short & long term. Your face is the only area of your body that is almost always exposed to the sun, wind, & cold – all things that can accelerate signs of aging. Facials & proper skin care at home are so important to keeping your face looking young & healthy.

Facials are used to treat everything from:
• Blackheads
• Acne
• Hyperpigmentation
• Aging
• Rosacea
• Dry Skin

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FACIALS?

1. Facials allow you to relax.

Not only are facials excellent for keeping your skin young, fresh, and beautiful – but having a facial gives you some time to relax & unwind. The proper application of professional touch, massage, and luxurious products is healing to the soul, a great stress relief practice, and on top of all that you leave with stunning glowy skin.

2. Facials decrease puffiness, fluid accumulation, & renew skin cells.

Facials are designed to increase circulation of the blood underneath your skin, which allows for the renewal of skin cells. Receiving facials also decreases excess waste and detoxifies the skin, which causes puffiness, rudiness, & fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system just beneath the skin.

3. Facials smooth fine lines & wrinkles.

A professional facial & facial massage help to smooth fine lines & wrinkles, while also promoting collagen production. Collagen is essentially the building block of the skin & prevents premature aging, wrinkles, & sagging skin.

4. Facials give your skin a serious deep clean.

Facials are designed to cleanse the pores on a deeper level than you could achieve at home with a cleanser. Extractions/cleaning out the pores can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation, & reduce pore size. If left untouched, pores can stretch and widen with the accumulation of oil and debris. It is very important that you do not attempt to extract or pick at your own skin as you could risk serious scarring and even infection.

5. Facials even skin tone & exfoliates.

Receving a facial can do wonders for your skin tone. Dark spots have the tendency to age our skins’ appearance, but with the help of a professional esthetician, facials lighten dark spots & provide a deeper exfoliation. This helps to smooth the skin, allows for deep penetration of your favorite moisturizers & serums, unclogs pores, and drastically improves the skins ability to retain hydration.

6. Facials slow the aging process.

Facials give your skin a healthy, smooth, and radiant look & feel. With all of the benefits we listed, facials make us feel much more confident and beautiful in our skin. With the use of exfoliation, massage, & the application of nutrients & antioxidants through our incredible products, facials are designed to fight & reverse the aging process. Regular facials truly do optimize our skin.
