3 FUN Facts about Your SKIN (you wish you knew earlier!!) 🤓
1. Your skin is slightly acidic Did you know that your skin is slightly acidic? And, to remain happy and healthy, and more importantly, glowy, it needs to remain within the acidic bracket at roughly 4.7. However, using too many acidic products (hydroxy acids etc) can irritate your skin while using products that are too alkaline (any soapy products) can cause redness, and even speed up aging. WHAAATT??? Yes, even aging.
2. How your skin ages in 90% within your control.
Yep, it's true! If you’ve ever seen someone and thought “wow, they’ve aged well,” well, it’s not necessarily down to chance or genetics. The aging of your skin is within our control and is directly linked to sun exposure, which basically makes SPF the most EFFECTIVE anti-aging product on the planet.
3. Dry Skin in the Winter Isn’t Only Uncomfortable — It May Be Harmful, Too.
Harsh winds and indoor heating systems can suck the moisture right out of your skin. Having a lizard like texture to your skin is one thing, but the issue doesn’t end there. Many people think dry skin is cosmetic, but it can also increase our risk for infection with bacteria, viruses, and fungi.” Keep skin moisturized with products that contain hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides, and other moisture locking ingredients! Apply these within the first minute of coming out of the shower when skin is still moist, which will increase penetration and lock in hydration.
I hope you have learned something 😇.
