Proper Skin Care is Essential in Achieving Beautiful Skin

Much like a recipe for a main course, each ingredient plays an essential part in making it all turn out the way you want. Skin protection, diet, adequate rest, exercise, hydration and reparative preparations are all part of that ingredient list.

The Skin Spa by ICLS provides a wide array of products that help correct skin problems and help keep your skin in great shape – Here are a few of our favorites.

Proper Skin Care

First and Foremost – Sun Protection

Start every day with the all-the-time easy step – sun protection. UVA protection is the number #1 most important element in a skin care program. There are many factors to consider when choosing a sunscreen. What SPF is best? Is it for your face and neck, or all over your body? Does it need to be water and sweat resistant? Let the professionals help you decipher all the jargon.

Let’s face it, sun damage can add years to your “skin age”. First thing in the morning, whether you’re staying inside, going out or even when it’s raining; whether you’re planning to be in a car or a plane or your office – put a protective layer between you and the sun. Sunscreen and sun block, as well as antioxidants, provide the best protection. Why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on expensive products or treatments and then not protect those investments? Think of sun protection as an insurance policy for your skin’s health.

 Second on the list – Cleansing

Ensure you are cleansing your skin thoroughly. The Clarisonic brush uses the same sonic cleansing technology as the well-known Sonicare Toothbrush. By providing a superior level of deep cleansing, the Clarisonic Brush prepares the skin for better absorption of active care products, helps clear clogged pores, reduces inflammation and improves skin tone clarity.

There are a variety of cleansers to choose from and Hexam by Vivier, is one of our favourites. This gentle medical grade cleanser removes surface impurities, including acne while preventing and relieving minor skin irritations and reduces inflammation. Get the advice from one of our professionals in the Skin Spa as to what cleanser would be best suited for your individual needs.

Thirdly – Antioxidants

You can nourish your skin from the inside or the outside. Our team of skin professionals recommend you do both. GliSODin® Advanced Skin Brightening Formula helps your skin from the inside. This daily supplement is used to improve the health of your skin. It works to brighten and improve skin tone and is also well suited for reducing redness.

If you’re looking for an amazing brightening and smoothing, you should nourish your skin with a product that contains antioxidants such as the TNS Essential Serum. You can use this alone or with a device known as a micro-needler to create channels in the skin for better absorption of the serum.
