Skin care is ex­actly the same for both men and women and needs to hap­pen daily

Noosa Life and Style - - BEAUTY & WELL-BEING -

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.
