Take years off your appearance and make your skin look young and vibrant. Follow these healthy habits to create results that not only you, but everyone, will notice.

    1. CONSULT WITH A PRO SPORTS CLUB ESTHETICIAN

      There’s no better first step than seeking the help of a professional. Even in one visit, an esthetician can diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of your skin, prescribe the steps to best address your particular challenges, and recommend the right kind of product and routine that suits your personal needs.

    2. HYDRATE

      As the largest organ in your body, the skin is probably the thirstiest. One sign of dry skin is not drinking enough water. A good rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces everyday (for example, if you weigh 140 pounds, drink 70 ounces of water daily).

    3. SLEEP

      Like any other organ in your body, your skin needs rest in order to recharge its batteries. Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep each night.

    4. GET A MONTHLY SKIN PEEL

      Dead skin cells build up on your face over time creating dull, lifeless appearance. Regular skin peels, such as Illuminize and Optimal Repair, remove this outer buildup, exposing the fresh, healthy skin hiding underneath.

    5. TAKE YOUR VITAMINS

      Vitamins deficiencies are a common culprit of skin problems. A blood draw will uncover the vitamins you may be lacking and the supplements you require.

    6. ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT HOME CARE ROUTINE

      Skipping daily cleansing or moisturizing stresses your skin, leading to breakouts, lines, and wrinkles. Essentials include a cleanser, toner, treatment cream or serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and sunscreen. It may sound like a lot, but it takes just a few minutes each day. And the results are long- lasting

    7. USE PROFESSIONAL GRADE PRODUCTS

      Most over-the-counter products contain chemicals, fillers, or just a negligible amount of the “beneficial active ingredient,” that they have a benign effect on the skin. Professional products, chosen specifically for your skin by an esthetician, will give you the greatest return.

    8. REDUCE STRESS

      Take time out for yourself with a Phytomer Oligomer bath, a Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub, or a facial treatment especially chosen for your skin’s unique needs.

    9. EXERCISE

      Exercising releases toxins, increases circulation, and oxygenates the skin.

    10. EAT RIGHT

      High fiber fruits, veggies, and whole grains will make your skin very, very happy. Berries, high in antioxidants, and vitamin K will strengthen the capillary walls and give your skin a nice even tone
