A skin care regimen in very important

Even the best and most effective skin care products will not give you optimum results and better skin unless you incorporate them into a diligent daily routine. We recommend the line of paraben free skin care products from Mango Madness Skin Care.

Cleansing is the first step and one for which many women are using inappropriate products. Be sure you use a gentle and genuine soap (not a detergent type cleanser).  Many cleansers that we call soap are technically not soap (and will use terms such as “cleansing bar”). Be sure to read the ingredient label. You should cleanse your face twice daily with a quality facial cleanser such as Rose Hip Seed Oil.

Don’t forget to exfoliate! It’s one of the most important aspects of a skin care regimen and many women skip this step.  Two to three times a week, use either a paraben-free glycolic acid based cleanser or exfoliator (such as Exfoliate Me™ or Exfoliation Plus+™). Alternatively, and especially if you have dry skin, use a gentle facial scrub such as Oh Honey! with amber crystals or a microdermabrasion product.

After cleansing and/or exfoliating, apply a potent wrinkle cream such as ReNew Youth™ or Peptide 6™ on a daily basis. For maximum benefit, use ReNew Youth in the evening and Peptide 6 in the daytime.

Hydrate your skin: after you apply your wrinkle cream, follow it with the best moisturizing ingredient on the market, hyaluronic acid. We recommend Maximum Moisture™ hyaluronic acid cream applied twice a day.

Finally, remember your sunblock and use it every day – even if you are not planning to be out in the bright sunlight for a long time.  Sunlight causes about 80% of skin aging and its effects are cumulative over your lifetime. Be sure to use a full spectrum, UVA/UVB sunblock with a SPF of at least 30. The best sunblocks contain titanium dioxide.
