Skin care should always be your primary focus when it comes to maintaining the health and vitality of your skin as you age. However, with so much information out there, it can be difficult to decide on the right skin care regimen for you. Luckily, there’s a simple tool that can make those decisions easier: The Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™. Read on to discover the main principles of this useful skin care strategy, and how you can get the most out of it.
The purpose of the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™ is to simplify the process of product selection while ensuring that you’ve got all the bases covered to support and maintain healthy skin cell functions. There are three tiers to the pyramid, which we’ll go into more detail about below. By following the guidelines in each tier, you’ll be able to build a well-rounded skin care regimen that protects, repairs, transforms, and optimizes skin health, while preventing the signs of aging for as long as possible. Your favorite aesthetic treatments also fit into the pyramid nicely. Below, we’ve shown how our popular Venus Glow™ Serums support the powerful skin care plan.
Skin care forms the foundation of any effective aesthetics treatment plan, and that plan doesn’t have to be complicated to have a positive impact on your skin. With the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™, it’s as easy as one, two, three.
The first level of the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™ is about protecting skin from daily stressors, such as environmental and ultraviolet (UV) damage, as well as repairing skin from any daily damage. Doing this first is essential, as there’s no point loading up on products when skin is susceptible to sun damage and photoaging, which is the leading cause of premature aging. Use a daily sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 that is separate from your daytime moisturizer, and make sure to reapply throughout the day.
Step one is also where you would introduce antioxidants into your routine. Antioxidants repair the damage caused by air pollution, free radicals, and UV light. As part of this first tier, we recommend adding GlowSana to your Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatment. GlowSana is a skin-protecting serum rich in antioxidant ingredients that are known to slow aging. Apple and Edelweiss stem cell extract promotes skin cell renewal and reduces wrinkle depth, as well as protects from free radical damage. Aloe Vera extract improves firmness, elasticity, and restores a youthful appearance to the skin. The result is a rejuvenated, brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.
This level of the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™ emphasizes moisturizing, exfoliating, and cell turnover. Skin hydration is a key focus here, and moisturizing your skin thoroughly is vital to its healthy function. Start by using a good moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid daily. To boost your skin’s hydration, as well as the effectiveness of your skin care regimen in general, regular Venus Glow™ treatments are an excellent way to hydrate the skin below the surface layers, which an ordinary moisturizer won’t reach. The treatments also support lipid barrier function, which naturally traps humectants and natural oils for optimal skin hydration, softness, and elasticity.
To promote exfoliation and cell turnover, key ingredients to look for in skin care include retinoids for cell regeneration and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) for exfoliation. For an extra boost, add GlowNova to your regular Venus Glow™ sessions. GlowNova is an anti-aging serum containing peptides known to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Magnolia bark and grape seed extract reduce redness and slow down aging factors caused by inflammation. Seaweed extract and Provitamin B5 work to soothe and calm skin. The result is skin restored to a calmer, smoother complexion.
This final step of the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™ is all about stimulating and optimizing skin’s natural cellular functions to boost skin health. This is the step that addresses common skin concerns like acne or uneven texture and targets specific signs of premature aging. As the skin starts to age, the renewal of healthy skin cells starts to slow. As a result, skin can look dull and listless, in which case adding a brightening serum like GlowAstra to your skin care can do wonders. GlowAstra is formulated with natural plant extracts Vitamin C to enhance skin tone, texture, and brightness, and Provitamin B5 for its regenerative and soothing properties. The result is a clearer, brighter, rejuvenated complexion.
Treating common skin concerns like acne—one of the most common among adults in North America—is another proponent of step three. Acne treatments are a highly effective way of treating it, as is our serum designed specifically for acneic skin. GlowClara contains powerful marine extracts that treat blemishes, speed healing and protect the skin with antioxidants. Magnolia bark, grape seed extract, and Provitamin B5 reduce inflammation and redness. The result is a calmer, smoother, clearer complexion.
As you can see, our innovative line of Venus Glow Serums complements your skin care regimen with naturally-derived plant and marine extracts and fit right into the Skin Health and Beauty Pyramid™. As part of our Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments, Glow Serums bring the additional benefits of these ingredients to address your personal skin goals. Whether you want a brighter, clearer, more youthful complexion, or all three, there is a Venus Glow™ Serum that’s perfect for you. Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments allow the serums to reach deep into the skin’s layers in a way your daily products can’t, leaving skin feeling clean, refreshed, hydrated, and healthier-looking.
