Skin care is a vital part of a beauty routine. Not only does it improve overall appearance by helping ensure smooth, glowing skin without blemishes, but it also indicates overall health. After all, the skin is your largest organ, and it deserves the same care that you dedicate to your internal organs.
Like all organs, skin becomes unhealthy if neglected. Without proper skin care, the skin is susceptible to sun damage, spotting, and skin diseases. Treatment of these conditions can be tricky, though not impossible, but your best bet for long term healthy skin is prevention. You can prevent skin damage by using gentle cleansers and moisturizing frequently to prevent dehydration and irritation of the skin, exfoliating to remove dead skin cells, and making sure you have proper protection from the sun.
Poor skin care can lead to aging as well as damage. To combat aging skin, hydration and vitamins are key. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Omega 3 fatty acids all promote supple, glowing skin and collagen production. Additionally, eating skin-nourishing foods can play a huge role in anti-aging. Dehydrating or highly processed foods such as alcohol, sugars, and white carbohydrates can all be detrimental to skin health, while lean proteins, fruits high in Vitamin C, and antioxidants like lycopene all promote healthy skin and lessen sun damage.
Finding a skin care routine that works can be tough. No single product can provide a fountain of youth because the textures of the skin throughout the face vary. The wrinkle-prone forehead will not respond to the same products that treat the delicate eyelids or the tough lips. Fortunately, Genucel by Chamonix provides a natural, four-step routine that targets each part of the face individually.
The first step in this regimen is a plant stem cell-based undereye cream. This cream capitalizes on the benefits of Goji Berry Extract, Algae Extract, and Green Tea Extract, all of which promote internal organ health, by applying them to the body’s largest organ: the skin. Combined with peptides, antioxidants, and hydrolyzed marine collagens, these extracts help fight puffiness, treat wrinkles, and reduce the effects of UV rays and pollution.
Genucel moves beyond their undereye cream with a product targeting the skin around the eyes to prevent dullness, drooping, and smaller-looking eyes. Following the examples of dry skin and eczema treatments, they have created a Vitamin E-heavy serum to keep skin soft and glowing.
Targeting specific problem areas is important, but the rest of the skin matters, too. Genucel XV, their all-over skin cream, uses naturally-occurring ingredients to avoid stress on the skin and environmental harm caused by synthetic ingredients such as parabens and mineral oils. Genucel active ingredients include antioxidants and vitamins B3 and B6, which are ideal for promoting nourishment and glow. Calendula flower and essential oils, two major inactive ingredients, help the skin absorb the active ingredients to maximize results.
The last step in this skin care routine targets an often-neglected area: the jawline. Although many skin care regimens forget this area, it is one of the primary features that shows signs of aging through sagging, puffiness, and wrinkles. Jawline treatment products focus on reducing these problems, improving contour, and evening skin tone. Peptides and Meadowfoam flower target these areas by hydrating the skin and serving as anti-inflammatories, while Vitamin C promotes collagen production for firming and smoothing.
Skin care can be difficult, but your skin is just as important as your internal organs for a healthy lifestyle. For optimal results, multi-step processes target all your problem areas so you can stay healthy and beautiful as you age.
