Why You Should be Using NIA24 Treatment Catalyst Facial Oil By Leslie A. Gilstrap, Licensed Esthetician

NIA24 treatment catalyst facial oil girlKeeping your body and skin well hydrated is so important.  One of my favorite NIA24 products is our Treatment Catalyst Facial Oil.   Summer or winter, it works well year round. When you hear the term “facial oil”, you may be tempted to think OH NO- I don’t want to put oil on my face—but listen to all the great benefits this facial oil can offer you.

NIA24 Treatment Catalyst helps reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation and allows your current products to absorb and retain benefits further then using them alone. Nourishing and fortifying, NIA24 Treatment Catalyst enhances and accelerates the results of other skincare products.

Our skin is made up of water and sebum (oil from the skin). So, facial oil can work with your skin instead of against it, keeping it balanced, soft and comfortable.  In most cases its all about balance.  Too much sebum can result in clogged pores and possible breakouts. Too little sebum can result in dry, tight and flaky skin.  In this case, its best to use a facial oil to keep your skin properly balanced.

Over exfoliation from products like granular cleansers, acidic cleansers and peels can strip the skin of its natural moisture barrier.  Your skin may try to compensate for this stripping (loss of moisture) by over producing sebum, which as mentioned, can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. If you think your skin may be imbalanced, try adding a facial oil like NIA24 Treatment Catalystto your routine and help restore your skin’s normal ph balance. Using the right high-quality facial oil will actually help cut through the excess oil that may accumulate.

I have found with loyal use of the Treatment Catalyst Facial Oil that my skin has continued to stay glowing, balanced and clear.  Your skin can be too, just give it a try or as always, I’m here for a complimentary consultation if you have any questions.

Run don’t walk to get your NIA24 Treatment Catalyst Facial Oil. Supplies won’t last long!

What’s Your Daily Routine? By Leslie A. Gilstrap, Licensed Esthetician

What’s Your Daily Routine?

What’s that, you don’t have a skincare routine?  Well, let me help you with that.  Our skin works 24/7 to protect our face and body from weather, UVA/UVB rays, injuries, disease, and aging. So taking a small amount of time twice a day to tend to your skin is very beneficial.  If you have any question of where to begin or in what steps products should be applied, the following should help you.  As always if you’d like to sample products or discuss your skin concerns, please schedule a complimentary skincare consult.

CLEANSE

Properly cleaning your skin is an essential step in taking care of your skin.  This step will remove impurities from makeup and daily environment. Try NIA24 Gentle Cleansing Cream.

TONE

Applying a low-grade solution to absorb excess oil or to speed up the ph balance level of the skin. Which, in turn, will cause products to absorb faster.  However, your skin will balance out on its own.

SERUMS

Serums help target specific concerns, (dull complexion, breakouts, pigmentation issues) and nourish the skin, promoting healing and fighting the signs of aging.  Here are some staples to try: NIA24 Rapid D Tone Correcting Serum, NIA24 Rapid Exfoliating Serum, NIA24 Intensive Moisture Double Serum, NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic or SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF.

EYE CREAM

The orbital skin is more thin and delicate than the rest of the skin on the face.  It’s essential to use a cream that is specific for the eye area. Most will target puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles.  Try NIA24 Eye Repair Complex.

MOISTURIZER

It is essential to choose a moisturizer that isn’t too heavy for your skin type.  You want one that will offer optimal moisture for dryness. Here are two favorites: NIA24 Skin Strengthening Complex and NIA24 Intensive Recovery Complex.

SPF

The best care for the skin both on your face and body is preventive care.  As I’ve told you before the sun is the #1 ager of the skin. ALWAYS wear sunscreen and don’t forget to reapply.  Try NIA24 Sun Damage Mineral Sunscreen.

 

Happy product picking! Just start with two or three products that fit your lifestyle.  It is that simple!
