Your skin goes through a lot. If you really think about it, you put your skin into all sorts of situations that have an effect on its clarity, tone, elasticity, smoothness, and appearance. From the moment you wake up in the morning to the minute you lay your head down on the pillow at night, the tender skin of your face is being challenged.

First, your face must contend with all of the oil that’s collected on it while you’ve been sleeping at night. Once you’ve washed it in the morning, it may feel a little more clear. But, then many of us apply all sorts of makeup on it, clogging pores and decreasing its breathability. As we go through the day, oil builds up again and particles in the environment around us begin to collect in the nooks and crannies of our face.

Dietary impact on your skin

What we eat and how much liquid we consume throughout the day significantly contributes to the health of our face. If we’ve had a lousy day of eating, full of fast food and unhealthy snacks, our face suffers. And, if all we’ve had to drink are sodas and coffee, well then our skin is much worse off.

At the end of the day, some great skincare products, such as exfoliants, moisturizing cleansers, and overnight treatments can do quite a lot to reverse the damage done. But, to really get into the damage found in the depths of the dermis, a good facial on a regular basis will do the trick.

A well-chosen facial treatment based on your needs and skin type performed at a quality medical spa, like Radiance, will remove tired and dry skin, improve elasticity and texture, open up the pores, and add clarity. Combine this with a healthy diet and plenty of water intake and your face will be ready to combat another week or two, or four of daily abuse.
