why you need skin care

Good skincare isn’t just about getting facials, it’s also about the products that you put on your skin every day. You may not often think about why you need good skincare, but in case you are curious, here are some pretty important reasons why you should:

 

 

1) Your face is the first impression you make.

This says it all. You can’t live life hiding your face all the time, so taking good care of your skin is a great way to make a good first impression. Good skin says that you care about how you look, you care about your hygiene and it shows you care about your health.

 

2) Healthy skin begets healthier skin.

Did you know that taking care of your skin by cleansing, hydrating and regularly exfoliating promotes cell turnover to new healthy skin cells? Healthy skin cells = healthy younger looking skin.

 

3) Looking good is directly linked to feeling good.

Good skincare helps you look good and when you look good you mentally feel good.

 

4) Good skincare products will help prevent aging.

Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated can and will help prevent fine lines and wrinkles which are the tell tale signs of aging.

 

5) Deep cleansing the skin regularly will help prevent acne.

Proper cleansing and exfoliation of the outer layer of the skin (the Stratum Corneum), will prevent bacteria from becoming trapped thus causing acne.

 

6) Facials give you the opportunity to relax and relaxing is directly related to good health.

Studies show that stress left untreated can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure and heart problems. So….taking care of your skin could save your life. Ok, so maybe that’s a little dramatic but you get the picture.
