Our Skincare Philosophy
Our skin is the canvas we show to the world, but it is also the part of our bodies that is most affected by the world around us. Our skin’s main role is to protect us from the environment. Unfortunately, over time the environment has become increasingly harsh – from the increased power of the sun to the constant bombardment of our skin with radiation.
In order to defend itself, our skin requires at least three types of help. The one we all know about is the physical block – this usually comes in the form of a sunscreen that literally blocks the sun’s harmful UV rays. The second is antioxidant protection. Constant radiation delivered to the skin from our environments results in the production of free radicals, which can lead to skin damage, pigmentation and even skin cancers. A modern day skin care regimen must include the addition of antioxidants to protect the skin from these free radicals. The most effective of these are naturally occurring vitamins such as vitamin C that are applied directly to the skin. Finally, the skin needs hydration. Again, harsh environmental exposure strips the skin of moisture, leaving it thin and dry. We see this manifest as tired skin with many fine lines and wrinkles. A good moisturizer penetrates and lasts, giving the skin the moisture it needs to look youthful and healthy.
In addition, there is a wide range of skin conditions that require specialized treatment. From sun spots or hyperpigmentation, to rough/dry skin or fine lines and wrinkles – the consistent use of medical-grade skin care can have an enormous impact on correcting these conditions and restoring skin to a balanced, nourished state.
