Why do we need to remind our skin to work(out)?
Often times, skincare is compared to a workout which we may love or hate. It's true, some of us do not want to get off the couch and move. We can save that for another post but loving our skin (and the rest of ourselves) comes with the need to focus on our daily habits. A monthly visit to an aesthetician, like myself, and proper homecare can do wonders for keeping the skin on our face, neck and chest light, bright and glowing.
Wanna simplify your routine? Here are a few tips for beginners.
Tip #1 - Dude, just wash your face
I prefer Image skincare because I know it has been researched and created for all skin types. I trust it along with a few other heavy hitters I have included in my repertoire. We don't realize how often we touch our faces, and all of the things that we may come in contact with during our daily rituals. Dude, just wash your face. It takes a few seconds. Also, your dentist called. He knows you're still not flossing.
Tip #2 - Exfoliate and appreciate
Okay, you have cleaned your skin on the surface level. Wanna be bold? Use a toner or some kind of scrubbing pads if you are lazy like me. I use skin script glycolic and retinol pads. It takes 2 seconds. Oh, and I rub them on my face, neck, chest and hands. Yes, I include my hands. Why? Because the quickest way to guess my age is my face and hands. What they don't know won't hurt them. Stay young my friends. Glycolic and Retinol are the gold standard for resurfacing and activation of the proteins in the skin. If you start simple include them. Thank me later.

Tip #3 - Serum
I use a lightening and brightening serum with kojic acid. It's an Image product that I have been using for twenty years. The sun and hormones can create dark spots on the skin, and it ain't fun. Check my products page if you're interested, or not. Either way, add a serum. Why? Because I said so, oh and also because it penetrates deeper than a moisturizer.
Tip #4 - Still with me? Moisturize
Use a moisturizer in the AM with sunblock. Help slow down the clock with sunblock. Hey, I didn't even mean to rhyme. That's a catchy slogan.
