The Florida sun does major damage to skin and that is only accentuated by using cosmetic products that dry the skin, irritate the eyes and accelerate the look of aging.
Yet, television airways and online ads are packed full with commercial products promising to turn back time and make your skin look healthy and vibrant.
Say Poppycock to the Imitators
In spite of the marketing procedures of the top brands found in your local supermarket, pharmacy and big box store, their products contain all kinds of chemical compositions that can damage your skin and seal in the dirt and particles floating in the air.
So, if you want to look and feel your best, start by saying “poppycock!” to those imitators.
There are cosmetics on the market that are skin-friendly and provide the protection from the Florida sun, salt and tropical breezes that fill your pores with dirt and scorch your skin beneath the surface.
Where can you find these products? At a regulated and experienced medical spa/cosmetic center in your area.
Clearing Out the Gunk
Before applying any make-up to your skin, regardless of the quality of the product, you should start with a professional facial.
Cleaning the pores prevents the make-up from sealing them in and creating acne issues that you don’t need.
A good medical spa/cosmetic center will have a professional on hand that can do an assessment of your skin (and, maybe free!) and suggest the best options for you. These centers carry cosmetics that are free of allergens, perfumes and all those unpronounceable chemicals that are in the ones at the stores.
One of the best that many medical spa/cosmetic offices carry is JaneIredale mineral cosmetics. Best of all, you don’t have to give up your youngest child to buy them.
Ultimately, what this means for you is that you only have to go to one place to get a facial and the cosmetics that will help your skin stay as healthy as you want it.
