Skincare Is Your Best Fashion Accessory


When thinking of accessories most of us think of a snappy necklace, cute earrings or a great bracelet...but we rarely think of our skin as a fashion accessory.

Just like fashion accessories our skin is forever changing. Our skin changes over time due to environmental factors and biologic changes, such as climate, lifestyle and age. 

The difference is that fashions fade...but your skin lasts a lifetime, which is why it can be your best accessory if you take care of it properly.

With every passing year, your skin functions a little bit differently. When you're young your skin renews itself every month. That’s why young skin always looks so bright and fresh.

Over time, skin cell turnover slows down so that by the time you're in your 40's, it could take 50 days or more for your skin to rejuvenate.

Wooooaaahhh...I know. Since I'm approaching 40 this year I'll share with you my secrets for keeping my skin looking bright and fresh.

It's really important to incorporate regular exfoliation into your daily skincare routine, along with a good macro-exfoliation once a week, to assist the natural shedding process and reveal newer, fresher skin cells.

My favorite routine is the use Rodan + Fields REVERSE Regimen daily combined with Rodan + Fields Macro-Exfoliator once a week. (Both will be available in Canada August 2014)

This regimen helps clean your skin's slate when it comes to sun damage. The REVERSE Regimen helps erase the appearance of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness and discoloration by exfoliating, visibly brightening, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and defending against sun exposure.

Once a week I like to use my Rodan + Fields Macro-Exfoliator. This hand-held, personal use exfoliation tool sweeps away dead skin cells leaving behind a smoother, healthier-looking and more luminous complexion. 

It features technology, developed and programmed by Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields (makers of Proactiv), to vary the degree and duration of macro-exfoliation based on facial area. It's clinically proven to visibly improve your skin's texture even after one use.
We all know that aging is inevitable...but it’s your daily behaviors that influence 80% of how you you age, only 20% is hereditary. 

Everything from sun exposure, smoking and alcohol to diet, stress and sleep plays a critical role in shaping the future of your skin. That’s why it’s important to complement your skincare routine with healthy habits like daily sun protection, sleeping on your back and wearing sunglasses.

Following this skincare regimen will help to keep your 
skin looking young, healthy and luminous which is a fashion statement that never goes out of style!
