For so many, ringing in the New Year means new skin care goals for younger and more beautiful looking skin.
Achieving healthy skin is a daily commitment. But it’s a journey which will reap rewards.
A great place to start this New Year skin care resolution is at the e-commerce store, Skin Care Heaven, based in San Diego. They offer top of the line skin care products and devices, low prices, mineral makeup, and free shipping.
“We are so happy to be able to help our existing and new clients with these skin care goals,” said Skin Care Heaven’s spokesperson. “And we are always on hand to assist clients with their needs.”
Below are some Skin Care Heaven tips to help pave the way to more radiant skin in 2013.
CLEANSERS AND TONERS
The start of a great skin care routine is by having clean, fresh skin.
A variety of cleansers and toners on the market are geared to various skin types such as mature, acne prone, dry, normal and combination skin.
One thing to avoid is soap-based cleansers since they can dry out skin and make fine lines more apparent.
“A lot of people tend to skip the toner part of their daily regimen and it’s so important not to,” said the spokesperson. “Toner rebalances the pH in our skin and rehydrates it. It’s a step we cannot do without.”
A clean face gets the skin ready for optimal product penetration.
MOISTURIZERS AND SERUMS
Like cleansers, moisturizers and serums address different skin care needs as well.
“Sometimes we suggest trying a travel size skin care system which includes cleansers, serums, moisturizers and more,” the spokesperson said. “This way, people aren’t having to spend much money on a full system but can still get an idea whether they like it on their skin before making a bigger investment.”
While moisturizers and serums add moisture to promote more supple skin, good products will also boost collagen and elastin, offer anti-oxidant and vitamin properties, even out skin tone and help reverse premature skin damage.
The spokesperson added that some top manufacturers, such as DermaEarth and Revision, are offering paraben-free products to their inventory.
“Just like being concerned with what we put into our bodies, many are aware of what they put on their bodies in terms of a topical,” she said.
The sun is the number one culprit for premature aging skin. It’s critical to apply sunscreen every day, and when outdoors, use an SPF shield of at least 30 and reapply it throughout the day.
A great product tip is incorporating a SPF tinted moisturizer for a solar defense.
“If we don’t use sunscreen every day our skin will start to show signs of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and slack skin, rough skin patches and uneven skin tone,” she said. “All this can be avoided with sunscreen. And many skin care systems include a sunscreen.”
SKIN CARE DEVICES
Skin care technology is another great addition for the New Year.
“Skin care devices have come a long way and is making it possible for everyone to have healthier, younger and more beautiful skin,” said the spokesperson. “Adding FDA cleared technology will really boost your skin care goals.”
A handful of great skin care devices include:
Clarisonic Mia – a sonic skin cleansing system
NuFACE Trinity – micro-current technology which promotes tighter skin and overall skin rejuvenation
LightStim – LED light therapy which boosts collagen and elastin for younger skin
