Your Skincare Products are Your Best Friend

Do you know the secret to beautiful skin?  It’s getting the basics right and getting them right  – daily!  

It’s being faithful morning and night and making your skin a priority. Effective skincare is worth the time and investment .  I guarantee your later self will thank you.

Using the right products for your skin type and condition and making sure that each and every product that touches your skin is the perfect fit, will determine how healthy your skin remains as you age.

At the very minimum, your skin care routine should consist of four basic steps: cleanser, toner, moisturizer and  SPF. Establish this routine first,  more steps should not be added until this habit is firmly in place. Corrective and/or nourishing serums should only be added when you have the basics down – daily.

I  often tell my clients when they come in for professional treatments that if they have to choose one over the other, to chose the clinical homecare products first. Without  effective skin care products  anything I do in my treatment room is like flushing your money down the toilet.

Homecare products account for 80% of skin transformations .

We carry organic and clinical skincare products that were developed to address a multitude of skin care needs from adolescent to adult acne, fine lines and wrinkles, dull, sagging skin, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, sun damage, and rosacea.

Our products are Chirally correct meaning that the molecules in the skin care are working with the molecules of the skin

Remember how you take care of your skin now will pave the road for how beautiful your skin will look  as you age.

Our products are priced to be accessible and affordable to all who desire beautiful, healthier younger looking skin

Make your skin a priority – your older self will thank you!!

Daily Skin Renewal for Mature Women

transform your skin

Where did the summer go? Fall has snuck up on us and it hardly seems possible. Kids are back in school and hopefully life has settled down some from the business of summer.

With the coming of fall and the changing of seasons, it is the perfect time to revamp your skincare regimen. It’s time to correct and undo all that the summer sun has done to the skin, it’s time exfoliate all the dead skin and reveal that fresh beautiful glow.

The best place to start is by getting back to the basics. Make a daily commitment to take care of your skin. Make your skin a priority. Your later self will thank you for it!

Cleansing is one of the first steps toward beautiful skin. Without proper cleansing  and without professional homecare products the skin can not be healed or made whole.

It is recommended to cleanse for at least one minute and if you wear makeup double cleanse in the evening. Using the right cleanser for your skin type is vital. If you are dry and tight after you cleanse that particular cleanser is not the right fit for your skin.

Personally I have about 4 cleansers that I switch out depending on my skin. I love using the Oil Cleansing Method at least a couple of times a week. From there I look at my skin and assess what type of cleanser is needed. If it feels a little dry I use my Creamy Cleanser and if I feel like it needs a deeper cleanse I use either the Green Tea or Glycolic. cleanser.  Cleansing is the first critical step toward beautiful skin.

~ A gentle exfoliator is a must for your skin. It exfoliates the dead skin cells, plus allows the other treatment serums to penetrate more readily. All I use is Skin Scripts Retinol Scrub. It’s gentle yet powerful and gets the job done. I leave it in the shower so it’s convenient and easy to use.

~ Toner – Toner restores the pH of the skin and preps your skin to receive all the active ingredients and helps them effectively penetrate.  When your skin is still damp from the toner  apply the treatment serums.

~ Serums are one of your best friends. Serums will bring about the greatest transformation to your skin.   If you deal with acne, sun-damage, hyper-pigmentation or if your skin needs brightening or resurfacing you don’t want to miss this step. Since serums are very concentrated and active it is best to see your Licensed Esthetician to find out what your skin needs are and to make sure you follow directions precisely to bring about the greatest change.

~ Moisturizer is crucial for beautiful glowing skin. All skin, even oily, needs to be hydrated and moisturized. Especially now that we have entered in to the fall weather and soon to be winter your skin will be looking for hydration and moisture. For younger looking skin this is key!

~Sunscreen – Over 85% of aging skin is caused by the sun and environmental factor. If you desire to age gracefully protect your skin. Wear it daily winter, summer, spring and fall. When its raining, cloudy or sunshiny. Find a sunscreen with active ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for the best protection.

I know how hard it can be to pick out the right skin care products.  The fact of the matter is, we are all tired of wasting money on products that don’t work and having empty promises left unfilled.

Nature’s Genesis is always researching to see what else is out there. What new product is the cure all? What will my clients fall in love with? What will benefit their skin the most and bring the change they are looking for? The truth of it is…….there is no miracle cream or serum out there, yet the search still continues………

One product will not correct your skin – only a combination of tried and true products will bring about the change. We wish one would do the job…..but there is no such luck:)

Nature’s Genesis does not believe in carrying a lot of products. The products we do carry go through the testing process. If they don’t work and don’t do what they are supposed to do we quit carrying them or they are not even allowed up on our website.

Too many products can bring about mass confusion and how in the world can a person begin to choose between 1,000’s of products that are offered for us the skin care junkies.  Our job is to bring in the best of the best and we are confident in our choices.

Obviously there are so many lines out there that are amazing and we can’t begin to know about all of them nor do we desire too.

Our goal and promise is to only carry products that bring results.

We try to keep things simple on our end and hopefully on your end.

If you have any questions regarding the products, regarding your concerns, please write us.

We love to help people and we love to see our customers happy with their results. That is why we are here.

Fresh Skin = Fresh Skin Care Products

peaceful look fashion blog 1

Are any of your skin care products over 2 years old?  If so, it’s time to toss them since most preservatives expire after 2 years. If these products are housed in a jar where you are constantly dipping and re-dipping your fingers in and out to take out product the germs are probably having a field day. Can you see the ugly picture! It’s not to pretty is it?

 

Plus your skin needs new, fresh products to stimulate, nourish, correct and protect. Personally I love to keep my skin guessing. I’m constantly changing my routine from day to day, night to night so my skin won’t get used to my routine or become immune to it and quite working.

 

Spring is the perfect time to take out the old and bring in the new. It is time to leave the heavy duty protectants and bring in the light refreshing yet potent serums that will firm, tone, brighten and bring that beautiful springtime glow
