Everyone wants to look good and stay healthy, right? A simple way to do this is to properly care for your skin. Your skin needs you!
Skin is the largest organ of your body and serves as a protective barrier between the inside you and the outside you. The story of your life can be seen through your skin. It can tell people everything from what you eat to where you live. Ok, maybe not exactly what you eat or exactly where you live, but pretty close. Skin is affected by everything that you do. That’s because skin acts like your body’s filter.What does your skin say about your life’s story?
We all know what unhealthy skin looks like. Sallow, dull, uneven appearance, wrinkles develop easier, are deeper and more noticeable. Sometimes skin will be excessively oily or dry, have blemishes and even rashes can occur. How do you keep these things from happening?
Skin is in a constant state of growth with old cells dying and new cells forming. Because of this, properly taking care of your skin isn’t only about how you look. It’s also about being healthy. That’s why Shear Miracles by Robyn ~ Organic Salon Products takes “A Holistic Approach to Beauty for Salons & Spas” bringing awareness to the fact that it just doesn’t make sense to use products with ingredients that harm your health to enhance your beauty. According to the The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language holistic means emphasizing the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts. Another words, we care about your whole person.
Since your skin is constantly growing and changing, you can see why it’s important to be vigilant in daily taking care of it. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and maintain a balanced diet to provide the vitamins and minerals your skin needs. Stick with fresh organic fruits and vegetables, whole sprouted grains and foods high in Omega 3s.
Proper skincare also involves cleansing it properly, feeding it with nutrient rich ingredients. That’s why we use milk and honey in all of our facial cleansers along with carefully selected herbs and oils that work at bringing your skin into proper balance. (We have an equally effective Vegan Cleanser with an organic apple juice base, too.) Milk and honey have wonderful hydrating antimicrobial and cleansing properties and are greatly enhanced when used together, giving the skin a glow while containing many anti-aging benefits.
Honey prevents infection, speeds healing, and moisturizes the skin. Packed with antioxidants, honey can protect your skin against the damaging effects of the sun and prevent premature wrinkling. The properties in milk gently exfoliate and soothe your skin keeping it soft and supple.
Your skin also needs to be hydrated. Hydration refers to the amount of water found in your skin. When your skin is properly hydrated it will be smooth and plump (verses saggy and flaky). Neglecting this most important part of your skin’s health, can result in blemishes, wrinkles and many more negative effects. Eat plenty organic fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink at least 1/2 your body weight of pure water in oz per day. Avoid using toners. These contain drying agents that do more harm than good for your skin. We recommend our specially designed hydrators that we have formulated for each specific skin type.
Since your face is always showing, it gets exposed to all the elements of life. The sun, wind, air pollutants, you name it – so it needs extra moisture to keep it balanced and healthy. Even if you feel like you have oily skin, it needs to be moisturized. Oily skin is out of balance and getting it into balance will help your skin produce the perfect amount of oil that your skin needs. (Many customers, after using just 1 full set of our Shear Delight Organic Skincare system for oily skin, have reported that they no linger have skin that is excessively oily. They then switch to out Miracles Happen Anti-Aging or Natural Beauty Normal Skincare System.) Moisturizers prevent wrinkles, protects from environmental stress and damage, improves overall complexion and your makeup application will be smoother and more even.
These 3 steps are essential to properly caring for your skin.
