Does your Skin need a Skin Intervention?

Like most women, I would love to say, " Yes, I woke up like this." But that is not the case for me. It’s been a journey for me to find what skin routine works the best for me.

Every 7 years our bodies go through a complete transformation. It’s true! Essentially we become new people, because in that time, every cell in your body has been replaced by a new cell. According to research, the body replaces itself with a largely new set of cells every 7 to 10 years, and some of our most important parts are revamped even more rapidly.

At age 55, my skin has gone through a lot of transformations. As a teenager I had very oily skin, which meant I suffered with acne prone skin. Needless to say my skin went through multiple stages. In my early twenty’s I had what is called, Transition Skin. It was a very exciting time for me. My 3 daughters were born I was 20, 24 & 26. Pregnancy not only altered my body but my skin as well. I had the pregnancy glow! My skin was flawless. It required very little work. But at age 28 my skin had gone through a transformation my hormones were going in all different direction. By the time I was 30 I had adult acne, which meant, I had to have a Skin Intervention.

I tried to treat my acne the same way I did in my teens, needless to say, it did not work. I had to start from scratch. My acne became more stubborn, it stayed longer, and if I had the impulse to pick at my skin it would scar, resulting in hyperpigmentation, (also known as a dark spot). I realized my skin had become much more delicate. I had to find a new skincare routine, one that would cleanse my skin without overly drying it, fight my acne, and help my

hyperpigmentation. That’s when I started using natural products. I also realized how important it was to exfoliate my skin. I discovered Glycolic Rejuvenating Serum and Micro Exfoliating Scrub.

By my late 30’s and mid 40’s I realized my hormones were beginning to change. I needed a Skin Intervention. My skin was starting to reflect, what I was eating and how I was feeling. Which meant I needed nourishment inside and out. Mind, Body, and Soul. Treating my skin topically wasn’t enough. I had to change my eating habits. I never had to exercise before, but at this stage in my life, it was required, my mind and spirit needed a new vision and purpose. That’s when I started relaxing at home with my own home spa, by incorporating Masque into my skincare routine. I started rotating Sulfur Masque for my adult acne, Foaming Mud Masque and using Natural Acne Treatment Gel into my weekly skincare treatment.

At age 55 I feel I’m still blooming. I now appreciate my oily skin I had as a teenager. Because “aging-skin” is characterized by its texture and tone, I have very few deep wrinkles and my skins elasticity is good. But dull skin has effected my skin tone resulting in loss of radiance. Because I’m perimenopausal, I get hormonal acne and my skin is more sensitive. Changes in temperature which cause me to sweat “Hot Flashes” being one, and materials that touch my facial skin another. Wearing my mask to stay safe, I have developed “MASKNE” or Mask Acne ( see my blog on How to care for Mask Acne ). The bacteria from the heat and sweat cause my chin and jawline to have occasional breakouts.

Time for a Skin Intervention. A long with my Glycolic skincare treatment, I have added anti-aging products, Glycolic Recharging Night Cream, Glycolic Renewal Masque, and Luxury Skin Cream that contains a multi-peptide called Argireline which helped plump, smooth and hydrate the skin.

In conclusion my Skin Intervention has been my personal journey. Everyone has a journey. If your noticing when you look in the mirror, that your skin has started to change it could be, your in a 7 year cycle. Start making a mental list of things that you have noticed. It maybe time for your own Skin Intervention. Don’t get discouraged your just staring a new chapter.

Believe or not, I get asked that question almost everyday. Finding the proper skincare products are not as easy as you may think. First you must identify what type of skin you have. Oily, Dry, Combina
