How Can I Boost My Skincare Regime?

January 16th, 2014

Starting a new year is an opportunity to reconsider how we can boost our skincare regime for a healthier appearance.  We may reflect on how we could’ve been more committed to our routines in the past.  A few simple tasks can remarkably enhance the health of your skin and body while offering relaxation and respite from a busy workaday lifestyle.

Not surprisingly your natural face care aesthetician will applaud you for choosing what would’ve been astute recommendations for an improved complexion.  Clearing pores, generating new skin cells and enriching dermal tissue through consistent care can bring about a revitalized ageless visage.  The right diet, exercise and professional facials can do wonders to boost your skincare regime.


Facials.  For those who haven’t tried professional facials, they are the best way to assess the overall health of your skin and customize care for your specific skin type.  Your select aesthetician can go more in depth to extract contaminants, shrink pores, erase wrinkles and recondition the skin with robust moisturizing only available at leading day spas. Holistic facials are non-invasive approaches to treating skin with groundbreaking techniques that are proven to reverse the signs or premature aging and promote optimal radiance.

LED light therapy, for example, applies natural light emitting diodes along with nourishing face care to boost collagen production, erase blemishes and reduce inflamed conditions for a balanced youthful look.  One premier spa in NYC offers a full bed of LED to treat the entire dermis.

Juicing.  A simple task that can be delicious too, juicing and smoothies provide a vitamin jolt for complete rejuvenation.  All the leafy greens that are essential to strengthen dermal tissue are the foundation of the most effective juices.  Kale and spinach have vitamin A and iron that protect and enhance blood circulation.

You will feel the difference in your body and see it on your fave with a daily serving of your juice or smoothie recipe.  Joanna Vargas, skincare guru, often recommends green juice to her celebrity clients who are always on the run with minimal time to prepare meals with the critical nutrients these beverages offer.  All your favorite fruits and vegetable can be the perfect anti-aging recipe with the right combination of vitamins and minerals.

Sweat. Whether by exercise or sauna, sweating unclogs the pores and jumpstarts cell regenerating to recover the dewy vibrance that makes skin look younger.  A few days at the gym followed by a sauna can release the toxins that contaminate cells if not expelled.  The relaxation of a sauna also slackens the fine lines of stress that eventually become wrinkles over time.
