5 Reasons Why Quality Skin Care Is Important
Skin care has been around for a very long time, (likely back to the Ancient Egyptians), because we know that how we treat our skin is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has stated that using skin care products and having the knowledge of how to use them can deter many common skin problems, premature signs of aging and even skin cancer. Quality ingredients in your skin care products will help to build resiliency and promote healthy skin; while poor ingredients can dry your skin out, cause breakouts, and lead to long-term damage. Read on for 5 reasons why quality skin care is important.
- Your skin is only as healthy as the products you apply. While some popular products may have designer packaging and celebrity endorsements, it doesn’t mean that the ingredients are of any quality. Take time to consider the ingredients that are in the products you are applying to your skin. The botanical ingredients in the Gerda Spillmann line exceeds US quality standards and are also more highly purified, removing bacteria and impurities unlike lower quality items. Your skin will benefit, both short and long term, from using better ingredients.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Your skin’s appearance is a gauge to your general health. A radiant and healthy complexion mirrors the health of your body on the inside. Nourishing your skin with quality products is just as important as taking vitamins, drinking water and eating healthy foods.
- Protection from damaging environmental agitators. Quality moisturizers and body products help to seal your skin, both retaining important moisture content and sealing out damaging particles and products that may be in the environment, like pollution, dust, even UVA and UVB rays. Your skin is your defense system against foreign substances that can make you sick or cause irreversible damage to your body. Skin is nourished and strengthened by the products you apply; make sure you are protecting this natural barrier and promoting healthy skin for your long-term health.
Help fight the appearance of aging. Moisture content is key to keeping your skin looking young, but more important, healthy. Starting a skin care regimen as soon as possible helps to defy some of the aging effects on our skin. It’s never too late to start! Fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, discoloration, dryness and problem skin that can start as early as the late 20’s can all be cared for with a dedicated skin care routine. Quality products will help to alleviate some of the concerns about aging while nourishing and restoring your skin’s vitality.
How you feel about yourself and your appearance affects your quality of life. Your opinion of how you feel projects to others- if you are feeling great and looking good, your confidence will shine!
