So you cleanse and moisturise every day but you still have problems with your skin. What are you doing wrong?
Firstly using what your friend uses or what was recommended in a YouTube vloggers latest haul is probably going to be your first big mistake. Secondly, not having a regular professional treatment at a reputable skin care centre.
Taking good care of your skin at home is vital. You need a daytime and night time regime (especially if you wear make-up) in order to achieve the best visible results. However, whether weekly, fortnightly or monthly, it is of equal importance to have a professional treatment in order to obtain the ultimate results.
The thing is Teenage skin is the most problematic skin. For some it is, thankfully, restricted to those years.
As we near our teen years we will see that our skin, once soft and flawless, starts to become oily and prone to breakouts, or even full-blown acne.
The fault lies with our ever changing and therefore imbalanced hormones. If you are not on top of your skins health, this can be an even worse time. The sebaceous glands become more active resulting in the over production of oil. Along with increased bacteria, these combined are what makes teenage skin different to everyday adult skin. The fact that the skin is so young and therefore more fragile than adult skin highlights the need for its treatment to differ.
So we can't control our hormones... But we can help...
And you are never too young to make a start!
At PURA we offer our young clients the best in professional skincare treatments. Using Dermalogica's Clear Start range, it is specifically developed for young people.
Clear Start™ is the first serious skin care system aimed at helping teens cut through the hype to get clear skin. Developed by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, it uses powerful ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.
Tough on breakouts, gentle on skin. That's Clear Start™.
An Intensive Treatment facial at PURA includes a thorough skin analysis to determine your skin type and needs. The skin is gently double cleansed and then exfoliated to loosen surface dry cells. Steam is also included to soften and open the pores, which will allow for manual extractions done safely so as not to harm the integrity of the skin. A customized mask appropriate for the skin type is then applied and the facial is finished with a prescribed moisturiser. During the facial, the ways in which diet and lifestyle can affect the skin are also discussed, as well as suggestions about how to care for the skin at home with simple, but effective routines.
There is also a client specific Microzone treatment for those that want a more intensive treatment targeting one problem.
So now you know, remember the reasons to have a professional skin treatment:
- It takes a skilled hand to clear away those break outs. Don't sit at home trying to pop that zit yourself. Spots come and go dark scars and marks last a lot longer (even forever).
- Through an in-depth consultation and the therapist looking and touching your skin, you will receive product recommendations that will be accurate for you.
- The professional products will always be stronger (for professional use) to give you that professional finish.
- Stress can be a factor in producing breakouts. The added benefit of a professional treatment is that it can help you relax. Think about that especially at exam time.
- Finally, remember: Great skin gives you confidence.
