Why You need Glimpse Intuitive Skin Care

Why Safe Skin Care Products Are Important!

Many people do not realize the cosmetics industry is unregulated by the federal government. The ingredients found in many skin care and cosmetic products may be the main route of exposure to harmful chemicals. Therefore, it is a good idea for consumers to be educated as to what they are using.

The average person absorbs hundreds of chemicals and toxins every day, using such products as facial cleanser, soap, shampoo, deodorant, nail polish etc. These products can do much more harm than good to our bodies. Many skin care products contain unnecessary ingredients such as fragrances, dyes and preservatives. In addition, there are many potential health risks associated with chemicals commonly found in many items which may be linked to cancer, birth defects, and hormonal difficulties, and yet no warning label is required.

The skin is the largest organ in the body, and readily absorbs whatever we put on it. Safety testing of ingredients in personal care products is not mandatory, and even terms like "natural" and "hypoallergenic" can be misleading. For this reason it is essential that one reads the ingredients on the labels before purchasing or using.

A great resource to help you find safe skin care and cosmetic products is The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Its goal is to protect the health of the public by requiring the beauty industry to phase out the use of harmful toxins and replace them with safe alternatives. Companies that have signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics are committed to this promise to make products that will do no harm. The companies that have signed this are all listed, so you can determine if what you are using is safe or not. In addition you can discover which organizations are supporting the campaign.

By educating yourself you can avoid the use of harmful chemicals on you and your family's skin.

Why Glimpse Skin Care

The Basic 4-Step Skincare Regimen

  • Step 1: Cleansing Simple is key here. You need to find a good cleanser that your skin responds well to, and stick with it. (I list the best cleansers for skin types in this article ).

    Avoid bar soaps as they tend to dry out the skin. According to Rona Berg, in her book, "Beauty," a French cosmetics executive once told her "soap should only ever touch your skin from the neck down." We agree. According to Berg, most cleansers contain oil, water and "surfactants." The oil dissolves oil on your face, surfactants dissolve dirt and makeup and the water washes it all away. The secret is finding the right mix of oil. (Makes sense to us). Too much on your skin will clog pores, while too little will dry it out. This is why you need to know your skin type.

    Be careful not to cleanse too often. Washing at night should do you. While some skincare experts swear you should cleanse skin with creamy cleansers that you wipe off with a tissue, never letting water touch your skin (some hard waters are especially hard on skin), we prefer the water method. In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (we find it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing). Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries). Also be careful about overcleansing skin.

    Here's the best way to wash your face: Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Use a dime-sized bit of cleanser, then rinse with cool or lukewarm water. You'll also want to take off your makeup with a proper makeup remover.

  • Step 2: Exfoliate Exfoliation is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine. But trust me, if you start properly exfoliating your skin, you will notice an almost immediate difference. According to Berg, one of the reasons men's skin looks more youthful than women's is because men tend to exfoliate daily when they shave. There are several ways to exfoliate skin: Microdermabrasion, chemical peels and retinoids.

    Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull your complexion. We find exfoliating skin once a week with a microdermabrasion kit keeps skin glowing year-round. Make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Big grains in cheap scrubs can tear skin and cause more harm than good. My favorite microdermabrasion kit is made by Lancome.

    In the hour it takes to get a chemical peel, you can take off five years from your face. Can't afford the pricetag for a monthly peel? Try some over-the-counter peels that work over the course of a month. I prefer MD Skincare's.

    Retinoids (such as Retin-A) also work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells while also generating collagen in the skin. "Collagen is the skin's structural fiber," dermatologist Dennis Gross said in the October 2005 issue of O Magazine. "As we get older, it breaks down, creating lines and large pores." Skincare experts disagree on all sorts of things, but most of them consider retinoids to be a miracle skin saver.

    Should you use a toner? Some people swear by toners, but many beauty experts do not (I once read a skincare expert claim, 'toners are only for copy machines'). Toners are meant to remove all remaining traces of oil, makeup and dirt, but a good cleanser should do this. I firmly believe it's up to you. If you like the way your skin feels with a toner. Buy it. Use it. Enjoy it.

  • Step 3: Moisturize While I know of at least one famous beauty editor who swore skin doesn't need moisturizer, basically everyone else I've read disagrees and is an adamant believer in it. A basic law of beauty is that everyone, no matter her skin type, should moisturize. Even if your skin is oily, it will benefit from moisturizers. (The only exception is those with acne). Why? Moisturizers seal moisture into skin (Berg calls this the 'Saran Wrap effect'). So how much should you moisturize? Your skin will tell you. When your skin is tight, it's crying out for moisture. Be careful not to overmoisturize -- this can cause clogged pores. For the skinny on great moisturizers for your skin type, check out this article.

Men’s grooming accounted for 3 percent of the total skincare market in 2007, growing by 5 percent to total roughly $73 million. While many men may think that skin care products sound like something of an oxymoron, a man should think about taking care of his skin long before an important interview or a dinner with that special someone. At that moment, a clear complexion is an absolute necessity. However, as your largest organ, chemicals bombard your skin every day. It absorbs everything it comes in contact with.

While proper nutrition and drinking the recommended daily amount of water can be very helpful for the skin, the face is especially is in need of a little bit of direct treatment. Internal nutrition is no longer enough. The skin requires external nutrition also. All natural men’s skin care products can help the face in a number of different ways, from minimizing razor burn to clearing up acne to protecting skin from the sun’s harsh rays.
