Why You Should Invest In Your Skin
The term ‘invest in our skin’ is a popular one – but what exactly does it mean, and why is it so important?
“Invest in your skin. It’s going to represent you for a very long time.” (Linden Tyler)
There are 2 ways to invest in your skin. You need to invest time, and you need to invest in the right products. How much time and which products you choose depends on you because everybody’s skin is different, but what’s common to everybody is that looking after your skin requires a small investment compared to the return that you will see.
The importance of healthy skin
Beautiful, glowing skin is the basis to any look at any age.
Your skin is one of the first things people will notice about you, it represents who you are, so it is very important to look after it. But having flawless skin is about more than looking good. Skin that is cared for is also healthy skin, and the stronger the structure of your skin, the fewer microorganisms will penetrate its layers which will result in fewer outbreaks/irritation and less sensitivity.
So the benefits of healthy skin go further than just an improved complexion. Longer term, healthy skin will defend itself better against external factors that can cause problems like premature ageing or outbreaks. For example, creating healthy skin through excellent skincare will help your skin regulate its own moisture content so it can adapt to seasonal or climate & environmental changes more easily.
I believe that if you focus on good skincare, you really won’t need a lot of make-up. The best foundation you can wear is glowing, healthy skin.
How to achieve healthy skin
“Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle”.
The right home care is the most important thing about caring for your skin. Just a few minutes every day, preferably both morning and evening, is a small investment for a great return. Other Beauty Studio 21 blogs go into detail about skincare regimes, avoiding toxic products and top tips for great skin, but the following simple basics are a a good place to start:
Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice daily.
Use SPF protection on a daily basis.
Exfoliate regularly (at least once a week).
Hydration is key to good skin so make sure you drink plenty of water.
Everybody’s skin is different so the correct products are super important. Choose quality skincare products which contain gorgeous natural ingredients and use them regularly. Bear in mind that you can buy enough quality skincare to last several months for the same price as you would pay for one manicure and pedicure!
Once you’ve got the basics underway, there are lots of gorgeous products you can add to your routine to improve hydration, eliminate blemishes and improve skin tone – all dependent on what your skin needs. As a rule, however, make sure you avoid all toxins and chemicals (which, sadly, most commercial products contain) so opt for a trusted brand like Tropic Skincare. For more information on products and ingredients, check out my blogs “Skincare Toxins: How to Avoid Them” and “Top Tips for Fabulous Skin”.
A holistic approach to skincare
In addition to a good daily regime, seeing your beauty therapist on a regular basis is also recommended. It is beneficial for your skin to be reassessed regularly, and a professional skin service will give your skin a boost, treating any key concerns you have and keeping you on the right path to investing in the things your skin needs. Facial treatments are also excellent for calming the mind and helping you relax, promoting a sense of well-being as well as excellent skin.
