You’ve spent hundreds of dollars on the latest skin care products. You religiously exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize. You visit us for Microdermabrasion and Photorejuvenation treatments, and while you experience results, after a few weeks it’s back to breakouts and inflammation. What’s the deal?
We see this type of scenario all the time. So many of our clients are willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a ‘quick fix’ to their skin issues, yet they don’t realize it’s stemming from the same source: the products. Unfortunately, not all skin care lines are created equal. Despite their claims and glossy advertisements, many well-known and seemingly effective brands are full of toxins and chemicals that actually congest the skin, rather than clean it.
Janiece, Manager of Urban Body Laser, experienced first-hand the effects of using clean, high-quality, and natural products. She constantly has people complimenting her on her skin, assuming that it must be due to regular Microdermabrasion and Photorejuvenation treatments.
“I haven’t done anything different except for one major thing, which is clean-up what I put on my face. Once I started using the right products, my skin completely changed. It’s so much softer, smoother, and hydrated.”
What’s Really in Your Skin Care?
They may state that they’re professional, natural, and organic, however many skin care products actually work against your skin. For example, if you experience frequent breakouts and have turned to acne-fighting products, you could be causing further damage and making the problem worse. These products are designed to be extremely drying, and thus strip your epidermis of any moisture, leading to dead skin cell build-up. The cell build-up will then act as a barrier, traps the oil under the skin, and then causes more clogged pores and breakouts. It’s a vicious cycle!
First and foremost, never put anything on your skin without checking the ingredients first, even if it claims “won’t clog pores” or “noncomedogenic” on the bottle. Unfortunately there is no government agency that regulates these companies, so it’s our own duty to ensure we learn about what we’re using before we make that purchase.
With thousands of products out there, we know it can get confusing. That’s why our medical estheticians are happy to help prescribe the best products for your skin. We only offer skin care and make-up lines that we use ourselves, so we can tell you firsthand that they are highly efficacious and anti-inflammatory. Our top luxury lines include Osmosis Skin Care, Colorescience Pro, and Pro-Derm, which are available at our office and in our online store.
