Want to wake up looking refreshed? Of course you do! Did you know that getting enough sleep is one of the most important thing you can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
According to the National Sleep Foundation, a good night’s sleep helps to build a healthy immune system, regulate hormone levels, and allows muscles to rebuild. Furthermore, researchers from the University of California found that new skin cells actually regenerate and grow faster while you’re sleeping. So although about one-third of our life span is spent sleeping, that time supports how we look, feel, and survive the other two-thirds.
Okay, so we know we need sleep to wake up re-energized for our day. But what about that study by the University of California and skin cell regeneration? What can you do to help your skin regenerate and look great? Here are our top three skin care “Must Do” things:
Cleanse thoroughly every night, and men you are not exempt. Even if you don’t wear makeup that doesn’t mean your skin is free from the buildup of your natural oils and environmental toxins from the day. Set your face up for a great morning by using a cleanser specific to your skin type. Sorry, the bar of grocery store soap is not your best option. Have a skin analysis to determine the best cleaner for your specific skin issues and then use it daily!
2) Hydrate to Repair & Plump
When we talk about buildup and debris from the day we are talking about far more than a little sweat or oily skin. Every day our skin is exposed to air pollutants, toxins, damaging UV rays, and even chemically treated water. Since there is no rock for us to live under we need to combat these environmental issues with proper skin care. A fantastic repairing solution for any skin type is Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème. This anti-oxidant repair crème works synergistically with your body to deeply hydrates while nourishing skin with Vitamins A, C, and E.
3) Masque Problem Skin
Use a hydrating masque once a week for amazing morning skin daily.

Esthetician Tip: Remember seasonal/climate changes can effect your skin, you may need to change out one or two products to help combat those environmental differences.
