People fall into 2 groups when it comes to most things - proactive and reactive. Which are you? Here's some definitions to ponder;
-serving to prepare for, intervene in, or control an expected occurrence or situation, especially a negative or difficult one; anticipatory: proactive measures against crime.
-tending to react; pertaining to or characterized by reaction: a reverse movement or tendency; an action in a reverse direction or manner.
The best way to fight the effects of aging on skin is to be proactive. Here's the 3 areas where being proactive will yield beautiful results;
This means taking some time each day to properly care for your skin. More women than you might think sheepishly admit to me that they don't wash their faces at night. Most don't have proper cleansers and moisturizers (the basics) other than what they pick up in the drug store, without knowing what their skin type is or what's too much of a good thing. Your esthetician, who knows your needs and preferences, can make recommendations for a short but effective daily routine that won't cost a bundle but will yield positive results.
Every week, there should be one or more times that you apply treatments for your particular skin care concerns. Very few clients have knowledge of what treatments entail, and believe that they would take too much time anyway. Generally, the treatment phase involves one or more of the following - exfoliation, treatment or corrective mask or serum. There are also wonderful at home treatments that involve light therapies or mild currents.
Seeing your professional esthetician that is well acquainted with your skin and your needs and preferences is crucial. Although many women think of having a "deep cleaning" periodically, your esthetician has many options to correct or improve skin care issues. This may involve more frequent visits, tapering off as the skin responds to the treatments. At Calm, this is known as Corrective Skincare, and it deals with aging, acne and rosacea.
So start today, and watch your skin look amazing for a long time to come.
