Why YOU Should Be Using A Facial Toner

The most important step in a skin care routine is obviously cleansing.  The next most important step, in my professional opinion, is using a facial toner suited for your skin type.

Why are toners important? 

Tn__MG_1310 Revitalizing Toner First, they help remove any residual debris left on the skin's surface from cleansing.  Secondly, they help bring the skin back to a normal pH level more quickly, which in turn, helps prevent dehydration.  Lastly, toners enable the skin to more effectively receive the benefits of other skin care products such as specialty serums and moisturizers.

Choose a toner that is skin type specific to address your individual needs. Also look for one that is alcohol-free.  You don't want to strip the skin's natural lipid barrier.

If you're looking for a toner but not sure which one to try, consider PRIIA Cosmetics 100% Natural & Vegan facial toners.  Choose from Clarifying for those with oily/congested/acneic skin types or Revitalizing for all skin types.  These toners are skillfully crafted and contain rare and exotic ingredients such as Cactus Flower Extract, plus they're boosted with super antioxidants, such as organic Japanese Green Tea Extract & Vitamin E.  PRIIA's toners are alcohol-free, paraben-free, petroleum derivative-free, synthetic emulsifier-free, FD&C dye-free and as always, cruelty-free.

PRIIA Cosmetics offers sample sizes of these wonderfully refreshing toners.  So, you can try them out before committing to a full-size purchase.

The Top 5 Reasons Why YOU Should Visit A Skin Care Professional

Everyday your skin is bombarded with dirt, debris, stress, bacteria, UV rays and environmental pollution which cause pre-mature aging, inflammation and overall poor skin health and appearance.

Healthy, unbroken skin is the first defense against disease.  Professional care for the face- one of the areas most exposed to the environment- is a critical step to good health.  Professional treatments of this area by a licensed esthetician provides a barrier to illness, a purposeful immunity, and a radiant, glowing YOU.

Facialmassage Need more reasons WHY you should consider receiving professional skin care treatments?  Here are the TOP 5

1. Skin is analyzed by a trained and licensed professional.  Studies show that 60% of people define their skin type and home care products incorrectly.  A licensed esthetician is trained in skin analysis to provide accurate information, create an appropriate treatment plan and make proper home care product recommendations to enable you to meet your skin care goals.

2. Deep cleansing of the skin by a professional rids the skin of dirt, debris and environmental pollutants in order to allow your skin to maintain a healthy balance and enhance its ability to fight off disease and aging.  It also enables the skin to better utilize the products applied for nourishment, exfoliation and protection.

3. Deeper exfoliation and penetration of products with professional equipment, techniques and products work to allow beneficial ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin for faster and greater results.

4. Professional facial massage dilates the vascular system, encouraging it to bring vital nutrients and moisture to the deeper layers of the skin and to remove waste and toxins produced during normal cell metabolism.  This stimulation also brings a "healthy glow" to the skin that only a professional facial massage can produce.

And lastly…

5. Professional extractions are performed when needed.  Acne and breakouts can be spread, and scarring caused, by picking.  An esthetician is trained to perform extractions when needed and in the least invasive and most safe and effective manner.  The skin is properly prepped and extractions are done with optimal results and minimal discomfort.

Professional facial treatments can be relaxing and rejuvenating, a much needed prescription for our hectic daily and stress-filled lives, especially since stress plays a major role in many skin care and other physical disorders.

Worried you can't afford having professional skin care treatments?  Don't be.  Most professional skin carePumpkinfacial treatments start in the range of $55 to $75 for a basic facial and are recommended every 6 to 8 weeks.  For about a $1 to $2 per day, a professional skin care treatment is easily within your grasp.  If you go out to eat more than once per week, cut back to one night per week.  Opt for the small latte at the coffee shop instead of the large.  Basically, where there's a will…there's a way.  Do this for yourself- your mind, body AND your skin will thank you.

Question:  Have ever received a professional skin care treatment?  If so, what service did you have performed and what was your experience like?  Please leave your comment below.  Thank you!
