Over here on eraclea’s skin care blog, we talk all the time about the importance of a daily skin care routine. But with so many products on the market, it’s hard to know which products are essential and which products may (or may not) be necessary for your unique skin. One of the most common questions we encounter when it comes to skin care: Continue reading
Even if you keep your skin clean by washing regularly with a proven cleanser, if you’re not exfoliating, your skin may not be as healthy as it could be. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells on the surface of the skin by using either an abrasive scrub, which sluffs of the dead skin, a daily use product with fruit acids, a chemical peel or Microdermabrasion. Do this will help to revitalize dull, tired-looking skin. Continue reading
With fall comes red and orange leaves, crisp wind, pumpkins, hot apple cider, and hayrides. But the change in the season also brings drier air, colder temperatures, and shorter days, all of which contribute to the health (or lack thereof) of your skin. Continue reading
No matter your age, it’s never too early or too late to start using a good anti-aging skin care product that protects, nourishes, and brightens your skin. The question is, what anti-aging ingredients actually work? There are so many out there, and so many people claim that the ingredients they’re selling will improve the look and feel of your skin.
Of course, we all want thick, full eyebrows shaped in that perfect curve. But most of us don’t have eyebrows that achieve that look on their own. While we can always turn to makeup pens and pencils to fill in our brows, luckily there’s a new way to achieve that perfect look: microblading. Continue reading
So you’re 25 and you think you’re going to look fabulous forever – you don’t need to worry about taking care of your skin problems until you can actually see them, right? Wrong!!
It’s never too early to be proactive. The health habits that begin in your 20s can make a big difference later in life. Although there are many to consider, begin with these 4 health habits to keep skin looking and feeling younger longer.
- Never, Never, Never Fake Bake
- Wear SPF, Like Every Day
- Cleanse, Moisturize, Repeat – Morning & Night
No matter what you may hear at tanning salons, the cumulative damage caused by UV radiation can lead to premature skin aging (wrinkles, lax skin, brown spots, and more), as well as skin cancer.
Research shows that tanning is especially hazardous to young people; those who use sunbeds before age 30 increase their lifetime risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 75 percent.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation-emitting tanning devices – tanning beds and lamps ‘ have been added to the list of the most dangerous forms of cancer-causing radiation.
This is the most important health habit. Recent studies showed that wearing a daily sunscreen on the face reduced one’s risk of developing melanoma by 50%. Look for one SPF30 or higher that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Cleansing is the most basic element of any skin-care routine. It not only removes excess dirt, pollutants and pore-clogging oil from the epidermis, but it also preps the skin for any subsequent products you’ll be using, so active ingredients (like vitamins or sunscreen) can penetrate and be most effective.
No matter whether your skin type is dry, oily or sensitive, you shouldn’t skip the moisturizing step in your skin care routine. Leaving it out might quickly cause redness or flaking, and in time it can allow wrinkles and other aging signs to show up on your skin earlier than they otherwise might.
Invest in a good, overall eye cream, as eyes tend to show the first signs of aging.
Your skin does most of its repair work at night, so it’s really important to make sure it’s thoroughly clean and moisturized before you go to bed.
Exfoliating a few times a week will not only wash away dead cells but also help in the production of new cells, leaving you with healthy, glowing skin.
If nothing else, let your vanity kick in. In 25 years, your skin will thank you, and chances are, you’ll look much better than all your friends!
