The Importance of a Daily Skin Care Regimen

Posted by GlyMed Plus Education Team on March 28, 2016

How often do you wash your face on a daily basis? If the answer was rarely, do you like the way your skin looks? So often clients say that they want to have good skin but they don’t want to do anything about it. Having younger acting and clear, beautiful skin takes effort, especially if you are trying to treat a skin condition like acne, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation.

If you want to really see results from a daily skin care regimen you are going to have to spend a little extra money to get good products that are pharmaceutical grade. You will see results much faster and your skin will benefit much more from the use of effective professional products. GlyMed Plus offers a wide variety of skin care products to treat a variety of skin conditions. GlyMed Plus products are designed to work in a 4 step system to make it easy for both the professional and the client to use our products correctly. Your daily skin care routine should contain at least four products, one from each step in the morning and evening.

So what are the most important steps of a daily skin care routine?

Step 1: Cleanse
First and foremost, you need to be cleansing your skin every day in the morning and evening. Our skin is in constant contact with dirt, pollution, debris, makeup, etc. Cleansing the skin at night with GlyMed Plus Master Aesthetics Elite Vitamin C Cleanser or Cell Science Mega Purifying Cleanser is going to get all of the dirt and makeup off the skin, leaving you with a clean, but hydrated feeling. GlyMed Plus Age Management Gentle Facial Wash is an excellent all around choice for any skin type. Using an active cleanser, either morning or night, will help to treat the skin conditions you are dealing with, including acne, pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.

Step 2: Treat
This is where you will incorporate treatment products specific to your skin type. These products are going to go into the skin and really work at the cellular level to achieve the results you want. GlyMed Plus has several treatment products to treat all different skin concerns including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, Rosacea, thick and dull skin, uneven tone and texture, sagging, and sensitive skin. .
One of our most popular and most effective products is the Cell Science Stem Cell Power Serum. We call this our 3 in 1 product because it contains peptides to treat aging, sagging skin, Swiss Apple Stem Cell cultures to protect our healthy stem cells and reduce the signs of aging, and this multifunctional product reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. The Stem Cell Power Serum is incredibly cost effective because of its triple action.

Step 3: Balance
Keeping your skin moisturized is one of the most important steps!. Keeping the water content in the skin where it needs to be will benefit the skin in so many ways. It is going to make your makeup go on better, your skin will feel moisturized and supple, and the look of your skin will improve. Cell Science Cell Protection Serum is another one of our most popular and most effective products. It will drench the skin in moisture and antioxidants, which will replace the protective layer our skin needs in order to function properly. Even oily skin needs to be moisturized.

Step 4: Protect
This is probably the most important step of them all. SUNSCREEN!!!! Absolutely everyone needs to use a sunscreen ALL YEAR ROUND. Just because it’s cloudy does not mean that UV rays are not going to damage your skin. The damage the sun causes to your skin will age it faster than anything. All of our GlyMed Plus sunscreens are FDA approved and offer broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Our most popular is the Photo-Age Environmental Protection Gel 15. We call this the “sunscreen haters sunscreen” because it is lightweight, absorbs quickly without leaving any greasy residue, and smells like a tropical vacation. Remember that sunscreen needs to be applied at least 30 minutes before going outside and several times throughout the day in order to get the full protection.
