3 Reasons To Invest In A Professional Skin Care System

There are things in life that you can skimp on while others are worth the splurge; skin care is one item worth the investment. Here are four reasons why you should consider spending as much on your face as you would your morning latte.

The reality of investing in skin care is that most of us only think about it when we are trying to treat skin concerns such as acne, dryness, or ageing. Unfortunately, a lot of this can result from poor skin care products or lack of a skin care treatment system entirely. The lack of a sound system can keep us trapped in a vicious cycle of skin concerns, a lot of which we may only notice down the line when it could have been prevented. Here are three reasons why investing in quality skin care products is worth it.

Basic Products Equate To Basic Skin (PH Matters When It Comes To Skin Care)

The PH of your skin is happiest when your skin care products leave your skin a neutral acidity. Many over-the-counter (OTC) products will leave your skin feeling irritated and dried out and can make acne worse or damage your skin in the long run. You might not even notice right away, as your skin might feel clean and soft at first but rough and inflamed in time.

Skin Care Ingredients

It makes sense that a company that uses better quality ingredients will charge more, but we often forget why ingredients matter. The Dalton rule explains that ingredient molecules that are too large to permeate our skin’s layer are ineffective- and most OTC ingredients are. Professional brands endorsed by licensed skin care experts are more concerned about delivering consistent results than sales volume. Better ingredients mean you also need to use less product to see results (although you still need to use it consistently.

Prevent Signs Of Aging 

Of all the things you could spend money on, your skin is something that will never depreciate. You will never regret splurging on like that Ed Hardy purse you just HAD to have that’s under a thin layer of dust in your closet right now. Your skin isn’t getting any younger. Many products and treatments are more effective at preventing the signs of aging when started earlier. Plus, a quality at-home skin care system means you don’t need more invasive and expensive treatments later!

Splurge on Skin Care and Save On Makeup!

There is no better feeling than clear, dewy, and glowing skin. How much money do we spend on primer, foundation, concealer, setting powder, contour, blush, Etc... Free yourself from the caked-on, dry layers of powders and creams! With so many benefits to using skin care regularly, Say goodbye to acne and dull, uneven tone; makeup can be something you put on for fun! Feel comfortable in your skin, save time on your morning routine, and feel confident with hydrated, even-toned skin!

At Okanagan Skin Care clinic, we believe in professional-level products. That’s why we use and recommend Vivier® Skin Care, SkinMedica®, and ZO® Skin Health for our patients. Benefits of these amazing skin care lines:

  • FDA and Health Canada approved

  • We love that ZO® Skin Health has over 5 amazing retinol products that are great for brightening and evening skin texture while repairing and preventing signs of ageing.
  • We cannot say enough good things about the benefits of sunscreen and SkinMedica® has a great line of duo SPF and moisturizer products (it even comes in a tinted version!)



I Don’t Have A Skincare Routine Where Do I Start?

The three basic staples of a skin care system are a cleanser, a moisturizer, and sunscreen. A good cleanser won’t strip away helpful oils but cleans away pore-blocking oils, dirt, makeup, and pollutants. Moisturizer is key to replenishing and hydrating your skin and customizable to include anti-aging ingredients such as retinol.

By now, you’ve probably heard sunscreen being preached from everyone in the beauty industry, and for a good reason. If you don’t use one already, invest in a high SPF face sunscreen to prevent the aging and dangerous sun damage effects (yes, even in the winter!). Depending on your skin type and concerns, our skin care team can help you customize your skin care treatment system. 

At What Age Should I Start A Skincare Routine?

We start to hear about skin care during those angsty teen years of blistering pimples and acne for most of us. When our skin starts to calm down in our later teens and twenties, we are usually oblivious to aging signs. Our 20’s are the optimal time to start a skin care routine to prevent aging signs. If you don’t know where to begin, our skin care team can help you upgrade your skin care armory with our SkinMedica®, Vivier®, and ZO® Skin Health skin care lines. 

Should You Use A Skincare Routine Every Day?

Yes, consistency is vital. If you want to see a product’s results and a skin care routine, you need to use it every day. That said, if you’re having a long day or you cannot be bothered, make sure to wash your face if nothing else. While makeup wipes may take off visible surface makeup, dirt, and oil, makeup may still be trapped in your skin.
