Facts About Skin Care

If you want to look younger without spending a fortune, consider anti aging skin care tips from Qi Image Spa’s professionals. The more you know, the prettier you are.

Skin Care Fact 1

While drinking plenty of water is good for your internal organs and helps to hydrate your skin from inside out, it alone will just make you go to bathroom frequently. You also need to eat food rich in Omega 3 fatty acids to keep the skin hydrated and supple. There is water and oil in our skin. When the water and oil levels in the skin are balanced, we achieve a healthy skin. There are different moisturizers for oily or dry skin.

Skin Care Fact 2

We know that moisturizing the skin is helpful. Exfoliating before moisturizing gives even better results. Exfoliating removes the top layer of dead skin to reveal a fresh layer. It lets the ingredients in moisturizers easily penetrate into the dermis. There are many ways to exfoliate the skin. In Qi Image Spa facials, the estheticians do exfoliation with gommage, scrub, enzyme peel, glycolic peel and microdermabrasion. The skin care products in a home care regimen are scrub, gommage, exfoliating cleanser and glycolic cream.

Skin Care Fact 3

We live in an air conditioned environment that produces dry air. Our skin is often dehydrated due to that. Skin care products like toner, mist, moisturizing lotion, cream and balm, are used to combat dehydration.

Skin Care Fact 4

Cream moisturizers and lotion moisturizers are both effective but the difference between the two is that creams prevent your skin’s moisture from evaporating  while lotions help your skin to appear more radiant.

People of color tend to have drier skin on the body and fair better with creams or body balms during dry or winter periods.

Skin Care Fact 5

An effective moisturizer must have water and oil. Oils such as mineral oil are too heavy and only sit on top of the skin. Modern technology utilizes nano carrier systems to deliver ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin. At Qi Image Spa, we select our products with your skin condition in mind and work with you to achieve a healthy beautiful skin.
