Being Gentle with Ourselves

So by now you’re thinking, what does this have to do with skin??? But it does, because stress and worry show up everywhere in our bodies. Many of us have had losses this year, different stresses, good things even that can be just too much. We can’t truly be present for all our family, friends and responsibilities if WE don’t recharge.

Give yourself permission to get a quiet cup of coffee alone, take a walk and think about what YOU want from life, schedule a massage or manicure, take time for friends or a work out. Whatever makes you feel calm and relaxed and then you will really have a happy holiday.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
