After interviewing many clients, potential and current, the conclusions to the most asked questions by professionals everywhere is budget, advertising, and knowledge. Why have more than 68% of people not had a professional facial? They think they can not afford it! Why do 72% of people throw their allotted dollars on “toiletries” and products on their skin care regimen towards ineffective brands? Celebrity ad campaigns! Why are 87% of clients experiencing self inflicted issues with their skin? Lack of knowledge! Skin perfection is a life time commitment. Your regimen and knowledge is the key, not only to your skin but the professional you choose to assist you in reaching your goals for your skin. When you are born, your skin type and conditions are decided for you. How you choose to treat your skin is up to you. Your skin is affected by what you eat, drink, the products you use and the extrinsic exposure you decide to object it to.
Breaking the bank is not necessary in achieving the best skin possible. However, the products you use and active ingredients are extremely important. J Lo, Halle Berry, and Carrie Underwood are just a few celebrities thought of when the subject of perfect skin comes to mind on the big screen. Society will model their habits after those they look up to. Marketing and advertising firms count on this statistic to be successful. They hire these celebrities to claim they use these brands in their regimens, to sell the product. Not to say none of these brands are worth looking at in the local drugstore, but rest assure, these lovely A list ladies do not have low active brands busting the seams of their chic medicine cabinets.
So, how do you achieve the best results possible without going over your budget? Let’s face it; most of the world can not afford J Lo’s $1000 per ounce perfecting cream, she uses on her entire body. Encounter your inner Diva, select a realistic dollar amount for your goals, and search for deals in your area. Everyone deserves to have beautiful skin and very few are born with the look of an airbrushed finish. Find an educated professional to help you sort through terms you do not understand. No question is unwarranted, because marketing, packaging and celebrities muddy the waters where the facts or truth are concerned.
Another huge piece to this puzzle is being aware of your true skin type and becoming knowledgeable about ingredients. More than 50% of clients are inaccurate when it comes to being able to diagnose their skin type and issues. A special light, know to professionals as a woods lamp, will tell them if you are dry, oily, or reveal your sun goddess whether you admit it or not. This is important because using the wrong active ingredients can create your skin to react improperly and cause unwanted results. For example, someone will say they have oily skin, but their regimen includes very occlusive moisturizers creating their normal/combo skin to be slick all day. Another common, misdiagnosis is the over use of retinols creating a dry flaky look on skin’s surface when the skin is actually normal or oily.
Professional product companies that include high active ingredients and low preservative percentages in their regimens do not count on ad campaigns to broadcast their effectiveness. These upscale companies put their faith in the trained professionals that use and are certified in their products, and the speedy results clients experience when using the products. They do not advertise to the public because the results will speak for themselves. Ultimately that is the goal with every client, they want to see and feel the difference. When that happens the client becomes more apt to keep their commitment for recommended products and prescribed treatments.
