RADIANT SKIN AT ANY AGE
Skin care is exactly the same for both men and women and needs to happen daily
IT GOES without saying that health and beauty go hand in hand. Nothing says attractive like radiant, glowing skin. Our skin is our body’s first line of defence from the outside environment that can cause skin problems such as premature aging, sun damage, dry, dull dehydrated skin, uneven skin tone, oily, acne-prone skin and rosacea.
With the vast array of skincare products available on the market today it can be daunting choosing an easy-to-use product range that is simple, effective and affordable. Seek advice from a qualified beauty therapist, skin specialist or doctor who can point you in the right direction of a quality cosmeceutical such as the Asap skincare range.
Try to purchase Australian made and owned products that will deliver fast-acting, visible results and that draw on quality active ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, vitamins and antioxidants. Formulations that have been scientifically tested and contain optimum levels of these ingredients, have been proven to enhance elasticity, texture and firmness of the skin.
Skin care is exactly the same for both men and women and only differs according to their individual skin type eg dry/mature, oily or combination skin.
A regular daily maintenance program would include a cleanser, scrub, moisturiser and sunscreen, however, acne-prone, problematic skin or anti-aging routines would require serums such as vitamin A, B, C or E. Serums are generally used prior to moisturising and can be time specific eg night or morning. Use serums only as prescribed or they can have an adverse effect.
Once or twice a week a prescriptive resurfacing or moisturising mask should be used and once every three months a professional facial with skin analysis is recommended.
Skin cell turnover is about every 28 days and any changes, good or bad, can be seen within this time period.
