YOUR NIGHTIME ROUTINE
That's where it all begins, so always clean your skin properly. Think of it like "Don't bring the streets to you sheets". Products are 60 percent more effective when applied at night because that's when the rejuvenation happens. Plus, we have the highest levels of moisture loss when we sleep, so this is the perfect time to address your skin issues. In the morning focus on protecting; at night, prioritize treating and repairing your skin.
DON'T DO WHAT YOUR FRIEND DOES - DO WHAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU
Just because a cream works fabulously for her doesn't mean it will do the same for you. Each of us has individual needs and everything from age and lifestyle to climate and stress all dictate what your skin needs. Before you get into any routine, have your skin evaluated because the product choices can make anyone dizzy! 80 percent of the clients is see are not using the right products for them, and that is where the problem starts.
BE GENTLE AND CONSISTENT
Your regime should support the skin without damaging, stripping or over treating it - we all need ALL those layers for the skin to remain healthy. We all have this strange belief that for something to work it must hurt, but being gentle and consistent ( CONSISTENCY IS EVERYTHING) gives you the accumulative results without causing irritation or damage.
EXPAND YOUR FACE HORIZONS
Don't forget to care for your ears, neck, chest and hands. The only difference in those areas is that the lipidic layer on the neck and chest is reduced by 30 - 40 percent, which means those areas have fewer sebaceous glands and will show aging before the face. So, when you take care of your body always treat your ears, neck, chest and hands.
USE VITAMIN C
Ethyl Ascorbic Acid and Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate which is the most stable forms of vitamin c does not create sun sensitivity. It penetrates deeper to stimulate collagen and increase elasticity, while also brightening and preventing hyperpigmentation. Using retinol at night and vitamin c during the day to slow down the noticeable sign of aging.
ENHANCE PRODUCT PENETRATION
Using a tapping and pressing technique on the skin's surface causes the skin the microscopically open like a sponge so when you release and lift your fingers up, your skin grabs onto the product as it closes.
YOU CAN NEVER MASSAGE TOO MUCH
Unless you have active acne, deep-tissue massage is the one treatment that works for every skin type and condition. Start by working on the largest muscles in the forehead, as stimulating this area help to lift cheeks, then work on the cheeks themselves and finally the jawline. If you start on the jawline and go up, it just helps to pull everything else down. Instead work down and if you feel you can't do it properly, use a massager device daily. Try to add a relaxing massage at the back of the neck in your routine too, as all the nerves that open up the front of your body and face are located there.
