The 1st thing we all see when we look at someone is their face, better yet, their skin! When our skin is on point, we feel we can conquer the world. Glowing skin is our best accessory! But when this isn’t the case, how do we obtain our best complexion when the world is conspiring against us, from our age to environmental factors. How do we age gracefully and always look our best?
In this day and age, it’s not just the baby boomers that are concerned with turning back the hands of time. When we hit our late 20s, we slowly start to see wrinkles diminishing our glow, and our complexions begin to dull. Even younger generations start thinking about what they can do to maintain their youthful appearance! Putting a wrench in the aging process has become a universal obsession. Although scientifically we cant stop time, but we sure as hell can manipulate the process, with the right knowledge and steps we can slow down the aging process!
Let us show you how..
Age group 10-18
Lucky you, that baby soft complexion, in this stage you may start seeing hormonal changes. You do not need to start with a ton of products, this is the stage we learn to build proper skincare habits, by creating a simple regimen. Lets talk protective skincare.
Begin with the basics
These steps may alter depending on where you are in the age group, always talk to a professional before purchasing your first products.
If you are in your teenage years and experiencing hormonal breakouts, you will need to start focusing on balancing the oils and keeping the skin clean at all times. Add salicylic and spot treatments to your regimen (Please advise a professional before purchasing).

Begin treatments after hormonal shifts.
Customized facials are highly recommended this way your professional can design the treatment to target problem areas.

We are at a stage where things are starting to change, why are we looking so tired? And what is this line? I’m never smiling again, why are they so deep? Can you relate? Let’s talk Preventative measures.
At this stage, we are starting to add products to our basic lines.
What we need to add:
Talk to a professional to add the right products for you.
In the preventative stage, we need to do just that- Prevent. When adding serums, we have to follow serums to prevent against our skin concerns, for example:
Antioxidants to fight against environmental factors, and to rejuvenate the skin, most popular is VITAMIN C.
Retinol; if there was a magic product in the industry retinol would be it, it’s the closest thing to a magic potion. Everyone in this stage should be on retinol, it will help strengthen the cells, shrink pore size, fight against environmental damage, brighten complexions, slow the aging process, stimulate collagen and elastin, minimize breakouts. Didn’t I say it was magic!
Hyaluronic acid based serums, this will help build hydration in the skin, its also naturally found in the skin, it’s the ingredient that helps build collagen keeping the skin plumed.
Exfoliation is key during the stage, it helps keep skin rejuvenated, and removes all the “gunk” that’s clogging our pores, allowing all the healthy ingredients penetrate through the skin.
There are multiple treatments to help fight signs of aging, talking to a skincare professional will help you create the most effective anti-aging plan including at home regimens and in spa treatments.

Micro needling, Viva, IPL, customized treatments using RED LIGHT THERAPY, and Hyaluronic acid infused treatments.
