Skin health tips using the H.E.A.R.T. Acronym: I always say ‘Love your Skin’ and your H.E.A.R.T can be a quick reminder how. 

Hydration – Healthy skin starts with Hydration. When dehydrated, the body preserves the water supply to critical organs, such as the brain and the heart, but “cuts off water” to peripheral organs such as skin. Therefore, keeping the body well hydrated is an important part of keeping your skin well moisturized.

Exfoliation – Slough off dead skin cells and increase the cell turnover, stimulating the skin to increase collagen production thus smoothing wrinkles as well as improving overall texture of the skin. Also increases the absorption rate of other topically applied products.

Antioxidant – Slow the signs of aging, lightening the look of brown spots while enhancing skin renewal, resulting in an overall improvement in radiance.

Retinol – Accelerate cellular turnover and generate new cells and produce more collagen. Make older cells rise to the surface and exfoliate. As new skin cells emerge, skin appears younger, healthier, more even-toned and radiant.

TLC – Skin is the largest organ of our body, and it needs a lot of TLC. Take time to give your skin the tender love and care it needs and deserves. (Don’t ever forget your SPF!)

Some quick tips to keep your beautiful skin at its best 365 days of the year. Aging is nature, but nurture definitely has a lot to do with how our age shows.

Happy Valentines Day!

xoxo
