Empowering you with skin confidence The strive for the “ perfect ” skin and body is an avid struggle tied to selfconfidence . Your self-esteem heavily influences the way you see yourself , your life choices , and other decisions .
In reality , everyone ’ s ideal skin is different , just as everyone ’ s fingerprints , personality and lifestyle are unique . From the delicate skin around the eyes to the colour in your cheeks or freckles , real skin is much more interesting and varied than an airbrushed image . Whatever your vision of ideal skin is , on a good skin day , you ’ re more likely to want to meet people , take on the world and enjoy yourself .
Sebum naturally keeps your skin protected and hydrated . But trouble arises when your sebaceous glands are over or under produced , triggered by factors such as extreme dry conditions , hormonal imbalances , diet , or even the wrong products . This results in expanded , unsightly pores , trapped dead skin and excess oil . And while makeup can help to cover up , it ’ s only a mask for the true problem at hand . Dull skin , hyperpigmented skin and acne also leave negative ingrains . Family and friends may not fully understand the personal struggle . Sometimes , even mild breakouts can make you feel less confident . Studies have shown that people with common skin conditions , like acne , experience the same level of social , psychological , and emotional ramifications as those with chronic health problems . Maybe healthy skin won ’ t solve your dating woes or get you a raise at work , but

it can give you the confidence to put yourself out there .
UVA rays can break down collagen and elastin , weakening skin ’ s structure . Underlying tissues may shrink , pulling pores downwards , causing sagging and larger pores . Repeated sun damage , dramatically increases your risk of melanoma and other forms of skin cancer . This is why wearing sunblock both indoors and outdoors is so important .
Trauma to the skin can result in scarring when collagen reproduction to heal wounds is imbalanced . Some scars , more noticeable , become a source of embarrassment . Fortunately , non-ablative laser treatments can help heat your skin ’ s inner layer promoting collagen production and generate new skin cells to replace damaged cells .
