Why it’s Smart to Go Pro with Skincare
We all know how important it is to choose the right skincare products.
If you get your products right, they will leave your skin looking and feeling at its best. Professionally recommended products will help improve skin condition, whether it’s acne, dry skin, sensitivity, or if your skin is starting to show signs of aging.
There is such a plethora of products on the market, it can be hard to decide which one to try. Here are a few tips we’ve put together to help you select the right skincare products for your needs.
What’s Your Skin Type and What Does It Need?
Having a consultation will determine your skin type and pick up on any specific needs you might have overlooked. An esthetician will help you to decide what the priorities are for your skincare routine. She may tell you something about your skin that you don’t know. Maybe you think your skin is just dry, but it could be irritated by the products that you’re using. Changing your products to a professional range like Image Skincare, could make all the difference.
Why Go Professional?
There are commercials everywhere for skincare products and they all promise beautiful skin.
Some are cheap and available from drugstores anywhere. Professional ranges are more expensive and exclusive, so why would you opt for a professional product?
Drug and department store beauty products can be sold by anyone, because they normally contain lower levels of active ingredients. They are cheaper because they can be easily mass produced and have a very long shelf life.
When you purchase from a salon, spa or esthetician you get an extra level of recommendation. You’re not just buying from an advertising agency’s copy. You get the benefit of the esthetician’s experience and training in helping you find a quality product with higher quality ingredients.
Most estheticians have a money-back guarantee. If a recommended product doesn’t suit you after all, you can return it and try another one. Our estheticians carefully research, and are educated on, ingredients in our products.
What’s in A Cosmeceutical?
Cosmeceuticals, sold by licensed estheticians, contain higher concentrations of active ingredients. Only medical grade products, sold by doctors, are legally allowed to contain more active ingredients.
Skincare companies put a great deal of money into researching cosmeceuticals; they use hi-tech ingredients like peptides, enzymes, plant stem cells and vitamins. They also benefit from the most advanced latest delivery systems.
Do something fantastic for your skin, book a session with one of our estheticians to get to know what your skin needs. You don’t always have to book a facial to get professional product recommendations. Most estheticians offer product consultations and create a customized plan for your skin based on your concerns and their expertise.
