Let’s face it; when we look good, we feel good. Your face is almost always the first thing others see when they look at you, and it is likely the first part of your body you look at each morning.
Being able to maintain a youthful glow is paramount to feeling great, and knowing how to go about doing this the safest way will give your body a reason to thank you. Here are three safe practices to put into your self-care routine to maintain a beautiful, healthy face.
1. Say Adios to Microdermabrasion and Embrace Dermalinfusion
Microdermabrasion is a treatment one receives from a med spa if they want to soften and brighten the skin, remove dead skin cells, and allow for their skin to help improve the way cosmetics work. It is performed using a diamond-tipped wand that breaks the skin allowing new skin to grow in place. The treatment is aggressive, and if the person administering it doesn’t have a steady hand, presses too hard, or doesn’t move the wand quickly enough, it can cut too deep into the skin and cause bleeding.
Here is your safer treatment option: Dermalinfusion is an alternative to microdermabrasion, and it is much kinder to your body while being more effective. This is an advanced skin-care resurfacing treatment that includes hydration, extraction and exfoliation, using specially designed serums to improve skin function, health and a youthful appearance. Fully customizable to the person receiving the treatment, Dermalinfusion addresses a wide variety of beauty goals, skin conditions, and is appropriate for all skin types.
If you are looking for a safe and non-invasive way to improve your skin’s tone, texture, hydration and volume, Dermalinfusion is for you because it addresses hyper pigmentation, anti-aging and wrinkle removal, while removing blemishes and hydrating the dry skin.
2. Dump Chemical Peels for Charcoal Peels and Vitamin C Serums
Chemical peels used to be extremely popular in the 90s, and they are still offered at med spas all over the world. However, some studies suggest they can cause cancer. A 2013 article published by The New York Times revealed that some chemical peels are carcinogens. The same article revealed that the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified these treatments as suspected carcinogens.
Why run the risk of compromising your health when you can go to any major pharmacy and pick up non-toxic charcoal facial peels (the ones made with added bamboo also moisturize the skin)? Then, pick a vitamin C serum to hydrate the skin after the peel and to help fight wrinkles and fine lines. These products have been heavily tested and pose no risks.
3. Use Cruelty-Free Acne Treatments
Whether you are 14 and you got your first pimple, or you suffer from adult acne, avoid buying products that don’t advertise as being cruelty-free. Unless the packaging says so otherwise, it is safe to assume that any other product has been tested on animals before hitting the shelves. There are a number of highly effective acne creams and treatments that don’t test on animals. By using these, you can feel good about yourself for refusing to put money into the hands of bunny, pig and dog torturers, and still get a clear beautiful skin.
Some countries actually require beauty products to be tested on animals; so avoid buying from them. You should also do some online research on various brands before you buy. For example, many are shocked to know those midrange and upscale brands like Murad and La Roche-Posey are owned by parent corporations that test on animals (L’Oreal and Unilever).
