Three Skincare Hacks to Better Results Using Skincare Products

Three Skincare Hacks to Better Results Using Skincare Products

Hack #1 – Hydrate!

BUT….we’ve been told to drink 8 glasses of water 8 times a day (8×8 rule) but in 2002 a study was done proving there is no scientific data to back that up. The reason is some food contains significant amounts of water. For example, fruit and vegetables are high water content foods so we get 20% of our water from food.

The NEW rule of thumb is this – if you’re thirsty – HYDRATE!

It’s a good rule of thumb to hydrate with water since it’s inexpensive and won’t add pesky pounds or hijack your nervous system with caffeine. Remember, caffeine is a natural diuretic and will drain your body of water.

Dieticians report that most of the time people often mistake thirst for hunger. Next time you think you’re hungry, take a big drink of water.

Here’s Why Water Matters to Your Skin…

When you’re skin is well hydrated, pores will be smaller, the natural exfoliation process works better, and the stem cells necessary for the regeneration of collagen and elastin can populate instead of dwindling away. Plus, hydrated skin responds better to skincare products. you’ll waste money on quality products if you’re not going to HYDRATE your body.

Hack #2 – Facial Massage

The muscles in our face, neck, and scalp (yes, scalp) greatly affects our appearance as we age. Repeated facial expression from smiles, grimaces, puckering the lips, eyebrow furl,  forehead scrunches, over time carves creases, wrinkles, and stuck and droopy fascia.

Massage has a direct impact on the circulation of blood, lymph, and oxygen. More oxygen creates a brightness to the complexion. More blood flow increases the production of collagen. Gentle massage drains lymph (the stuff filling those puffy eye bags) and helps the detoxification process.

The benefits of massage is one reason I’m a huge fan of microcurrent treatments and the ANMA. The gentle massage that takes place during a microcurrent session (in-studio or at home) has a HUGE impact on reversing the tightness, lack of circulation, and decrease in collagen and elastin.

 Hack #3 – Use an At-Home Exfoliating Mask

If you find your skin has become dull, flaky, filmy, and your pores seem to be taking over your face.. it’s time for a gentle exfoliation treatment. If you’re applying great products over skin that’s piled high with skin waste, you won’t get the results you’re expecting. Exfoliate in the privacy of your home. But don’t rush out and get an OTC mask. Those things are either too harsh or have low-quality ingredients. Please use a mask containing GENTLE ingredients in the right combination of ingredients and with the proper percentages so you don’t strip away the good stuff.

This is why I love NeoGenesis Creme Enzyme Mask.

The combination of fruit enzymes exfoliates to refine, brighten, and clarify the skin. It provides energy and radiance to the skin, GENTLY resurfaces the skin, minimizes surface lines and enlarged pores, and improves the overall tone and texture of the skin while reducing skin sensitivity and irritation.

This mask is so creamy and dreamy. You’ll love how bright and clear your skin looks. AND if you want to REALLY ramp up results after you wash your face, add a few drops of NeoGenesis Serum, then apply the mask for 10-15 minutes. You’ll feel like you just had a luxurious treatment in my studio.
