Maximizing your skin care routine.

Do you come home from the store with the latest skin care product you saw advertised on tv last night hoping and praying that this will be the cream or cleanser that solves your skin problems? Is a skin care product going to be truly anti-aging, or get rid of the glaring pimple blinking on your forehead? Okay, so pimples don't really blink but when it comes to your face we all feel like it's the landing beacons at LAX.

I struggled with acne for years and then I got to a "certain" age and the lines began to show. Not only that, but by the time January rolled around my face was so flaky that makeup was no longer an option as it made the flakes more prominent. I had about two days of great skin sometime in September. In retrospect, that is when I should have booked family photos.

I had been using a popular skin care regime since I was 15 years old and I didn't feel it was working. I was still getting wrinkles and I still had the acne. All winter I would double up on the stuff and still have flaky, dry skin. Very unfair right? I needed a skin intervention, or so I thought.

Turns out there are ingredients in these products that are actually aging our skin. We are feeding our wrinkles. So the question became, "What really makes a difference? Why do some people age so beautifully and others not so well?" Plastic surgery aside, there are a lot of things out there that are damaging our skin. My mission was to find out what works and what doesn't. Are all products created equal? Is there a Botox alternative?

Your skin gets a new layer every four weeks. This cycle means we needs a little assistance to remove the old cells and protect the new ones. Your skin is also your largest organ. It has three layers and is our primary defense from bacteria and environmental toxins. We need good hydrations and proper nutrition to fight. The impact of the sun, pollution, stress, diet, hormones, environmental chemicals, and aging is putting your skin under stress. It only makes sense to take care of it.
