Continuing with SPA WEEK, we are discussing at-home facial treatments targeting specific skin concerns. Though you may not have the time in your daily regimen, adding some of these products and techniques to your daily routine may dramatically increase your skin's appearance, texture, clarity, and tone.
5 Steps to Perfect Skin:
These steps can be applied with small variations for any skin type
You already have great skin, so maintaining it is your main concern.
Using good quality products is important as inexpensive fillers and detergents can dry your skin or cause breakouts. For a normal skin treatment, I really like the selection from KATE SOMERVILLE because you can really see instant results, even after just one treatment!

Using these 5 steps once a week will keep your skin radiant and healthy for years to come!
SENSITIVE / ROSACEA:
The most important thing to know when your skin is easily irritated is that you must avoid harsh detergents and other ingredients that can cause irritation. I really like BIOELEMENTS because of their ability to really customize a treatment plan that works for you. For example, the process I just outlined that works for normal skin would wreak havoc on overly sensitive skin.

You can use the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer daily, and save the exfoliating mask for 1-2 times per week, and you will see dramatic improvements in skin tone.
DRY / AGING:
Some problems that affect aging skin are dryness and discoloration along with the obvious fine lines and wrinkles. Common ways of treating the visible signs of aging are antioxidants, proteins, exfoliation, and moisturizing. LA MER has spent years building up a cult following for it's iconic anti-aging products, which contain what they call "miracle broth", which is unlike any other anti-aging product I have tried, with results starting to show almost instantly, and full results showing after continued use.

For dry and aging skin, you don't want to use a mask, as they can often irritate and dry skin further. There is a reason for the La Mer cult following, as it works so effectively it's like nothing I've ever seen before. If you are still skeptical, head over to your nearest Neiman Marcus and try it out for yourself. By the time you are finished shopping, your skin will feel younger and brighter!
OILY / ACNE-PRONE
If you have problems with breakouts, a traditional facial is not usually beneficial, and can cause further irritation. and actually strip the skin, which can actually cause an increase in oil production. Recently, I discovered SKINTACTIX, which is a skincare line specifically designed to treat acne without the use of harsh chemicals like benzoyl peroxide. You too can enjoy the facial experience while working to treat your acne prone skin.
