My Skincare Philosophy: Skincare is essential and vital to the body; after all, human skin is the body's largest organ, and will be with you for a lifetime. The earlier in life we are taught to care for our skin, the better the results we’ll see as we age. Your skin health has a lot more to do with your overall wellness than one may realize. I’ve often said, what lies beneath the surface is the real issue. Skin is intended to be healthy, hydrated, moist, even-toned, and firm. In many cases the health of ones skin is hindered by imbalances in diet, lifestyle, hormonal and emotional fluctuations, sensitivities and allergens, underlying medical conditions, premature aging, improper skincare, and stress factors. The root cause must be identified and corrected, which is why a comprehensive skin analysis is so crucial. Knowing where to begin, and which treatment is suitable is key. Healthy skin can be achieved and maintained with professional skincare, skin education, corrective treatments, a consistent regime, and use of proper products and prescriptives for your specific skin condition.
