skin care

Just as you brush and floss daily to keep teeth strong and gums healthy, caring properly for your skin each day is essential to maintaining its healthy glow and youthful appearance over a lifetime.

for healthy skin, Ideal Skin recommends these important skin care steps:


cleanse

Cleansing gently removes surface impurities and excess oils. This important step leaves your skin primed and ready for additional beneficial treatments.

exfoliate

Exfoliating helps rid the skin of dead cells and impurities embedded in the skin's surface layer. Exfoliation helps increase skin cell renewal, resulting in a smoother texture and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

tone

Toning helps to restore the skin's natural PH balance. It removes any product residue that may be left after cleansing and it prepares the skin for moisturizing.

moisturize

Moisturizing is a critical step that ensures proper hydration. When skin is well hydrated, it diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

mask

Facials masks are designed to bring some of the benefits of salon care into the home. Masks offer specialized treatments for specific skin conditions. Some are designed to absorb excess oils or deep clean pores, while others help soothe sensitive skin or provide additional hydration to overly dry skin.

protect

Using proper skin protection is one of the most important steps a person can take to maintain healthy skin and fight the signs of aging. The sun's harmful ultraviolet rays can cause skin cancer and premature signs of aging (hyperpigmentation and wrinkles). Proper protection helps shield the skin from this damage. The best protection is to always wear a broad spectrum sun block that blocks out both UVA and UVB rays.

treat

Specialized treatments can correct skin imperfections and help support the optimal functioning of the skin. Such treatments include Retin-A for oily and acne-prone skin, collagen ampoules to promote moisture retention in dry and mature skin, or treatments containing powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents, which are beneficial for all skin types.
