The Seven Steps to Clear, Healthy Skin by Tasha and DesireeSeven Steps to Clear, Healthy Skin at Christiaan Salon and Day Spa, Providence, RI

1. Glug, glug, glug. Keep hydrated! Studies have shown that drinking approximately 64 ounces of water each day keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. Drink before you feel thirsty to avoid dry and flakey skin.

2. Catch more ZZZ’s. Don’t sell sleep short! When you get by on six hours or less, the level of the stress hormone cortisol rises in your body. Increased levels of cortisol produce all kinds of negative effects, including inflammation. Too much stress and too little sleep can result in a red, puffy face. With seven hours of sleep or more each night, skin appears tighter and younger with healthy color. If you have good sleep habits, and follow the rest of these tips, than it doesn’t matter how old you are. Your skin will look rested and healthy.

3. Use a good moisturizer. Experiment until you find one that’s right for you. Try to figure out what type of skin you have so you can find the appropriate one for your skin type. Some are heavier which is good for dry skin. Restorative creme from Glo Therapeutics will help to lock in moisture. Others are lighter, for combination skin or oily skin. Oil control emulsion moisturizes without adding oil. Many people use a special moisturizer for their face, and a different moisturizer for their body. No matter which one you use, use your moisturizer within a minute or two after finishing your shower. That is when they can most effectively trap moisture.

4. Consider adding retinol to your regime. Using retinol two or three times a week can be helpful to those with acne or those fighting the effects of aging on the skin. Using retinol regularly can help unclog pores and clear oil. It also encourages the formation of new collagen, while making existing skin cells more elastic. Glo Therapeutics makes a renew serum that contains Glycolic, Salysilic and Retinol to help stimulate mild exfoliation and aids in cell renewal to smooth skin and improve texture and tone. Blended with antibacterial and oil control agents.

5. Make sunscreen a daily habit. Keep it near your keys, and use it every day. Some women may like using a foundation with sunscreen. Try our moisturizing tint SPF 30. Its lightweight, oil free formula that provides moisture to combat dehydration and dryness, broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection to guard against the sun’s damaging rays and a sheer hint of color to softly even tone and enhance skin’s radiance. If your skin is sensitive, try wearing a hat in addition to sunscreen. Sun exposure is cumulative, and damage doesn’t show up until it’s too late. 90% of visible aging is due to sun exposure. Block your exposure with sunscreen, or sunscreen and a hat.

6. Build a healthy body for healthy skin. You know the drill – eat right and exercise, and all will be well. Well, actually, yes. There are many, many reasons to create and maintain a healthier lifestyle, and one is because of how much it is reflected in your physical appearance. When you live a healthier lifestyle, your body and your skin look great. Exercise and eating plenty of vegetables makes your skin glow and your eyes bright and clear.

7. Indulge in facials. It may seem like a splurge, but facials – especially when you have them done regularly – are really a part of maintaining optimum skin health. This way, your pores stay clear, and any signs of stress can be noted and addressed immediately. In general, we recommend scheduling a facial every four weeks. Speak to your aesthetician to create a customized plan that works best for you. If your short on time, try our mini bliss facial. Its everything from a regular facial just compacted into a 45 minutes.
