3 Skin Care Products Worth Your Investment
Investing in yourself is priceless.
At 27 years old I still have much to learn, but my time spent here at Love Skin Nashville has taught me a lot about my skin care regimen. In my early twenties I thought I was being resourceful by using $7 drug store skin care products but was always frustrated with the results. No matter what products I used or what they claimed to do for my skin , I was still plagued with break outs and uneven skin tone. All I wanted was to be able to wake up with clear, even toned, glowing skin...that's not to much for a girl to ask for right?!?
Well, here is what I have learned and accepted about skin. It like any living organism needs to be nourished and cared for in certain ways. Your skin needs the following to be healthy:
Nourishing your skin with the nutrients it needs is vital to having healthy skin. Many of the skin problems you may be dealing with are most likely due to lack of nutrients. When I would wash my face with my $7 drug store cleanser I was stripping my skin of the natural oils it requires. When you strip your skin this way your body tries compensate and over produces oil which can cause clogged pores and break outs.
To prevent stripping and further irritating the skin you need to invest in 3 essential skin care products. I say invest because you want to use a high end product like Yon-Ka that uses high quality, natural ingredients that are proven to nourish and protect your skin.
1. Cleanser: A great cleanser is important because you want to be able to remove the dirt, make up and unnecessary oils from the face with out drying out the skin or stripping it of its natural oils. When picking a cleanser you will want to find cleanser that best suits your skin type. A gel cleanser is great for hose like me with normal to oily skin, while a milk cleanser would be ideal for someone with dry skin, for added hydration.
2. Toner: Toner is something that can easily be overlooked but it is truly an essential part of your skin care regimen. A toner can help tighten pores after cleansing to give the appearance of smaller pores and help keep oil from building up. Your skin is naturally acidic and when you cleanse your skin, the alkaline properties of the soap can disturb the pH of the skin, which van be balanced by using a toner. Lastly, toners can be used to refresh the skin when on the go and unable to fully cleanse the face. The Yon- Ka Lotion is my go to toner and I love that it is available in travel size!
3. Moisturizer: Investing in a quality moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type and can provide nutrients to your skin such as vitamin E, is key to keeping your skin hydrated. My personal favorite is Yon-Ka's Creme 93 because it is perfectly formulated for my combination skin. It goes on light and absorbs immediately into the skin, with a smooth finish,. It also has a mattifying effect for oily areas. Finding a moisturizer that fits YOUR personal skin type is key.
