Intensive Skin Care Routine
Address All Your Aging Skin Concerns

Intensive Skin Care Routine 1An intensive skin care regimen takes advantage of the layering technique to include a variety of anti-aging treatments that addresses the widest range of aging skin issues possible.

Intensive, yes!    Difficult?

Not even a little bit!

The intensive skin care routine adopts the strategy of including a late afternoon mini-skin care treatment which can be extremely beneficial, especially for dry skin types.

The addition of introducing a moisturizing treatment in the late afternoon can significantly help the skin maintain hydration, provide essential nutrients, and enhance its ability to protect itself from harmful environmental effects.

Remember, the older your skin becomes, the more moisture it needs!

This routine provides an ideal opportunity to include yet another skin rejuvenation treatment in order to take full advantage of using a wide range of different anti-aging ingredients in a well thought out skin care plan.

The intensive skin care routine might look overwhelming at first but it is actually quite easy and truly involves just a few more minutes a day.

The rejuvenating components of the intensive skin care routine includes a comprehensive selection of powerful antioxidants, vitamin A (retinol) treatment, a 10% concentration of glycolic acid for exfoliation, DMAE for firming qualities and both a vitamin K treatment and kinerase treatment for the eye area.

TIP ~ Consider substituting the evening AHA exfoliation with a microdermabrasion exfoliating scrub such as Micro Pearl Abrasion once or twice a week along with a weekly skin peel.

If you feel like a bit of extra pampering or just want a little fun with some swirling action try one of the home microdermabrasion spa kits, like the Neutrogena Advanced Solutions At Home MicroDermabrasion System which utilizes the same aluminum-oxide crystals that the professional spa treatments use.

Once you have established a basic facial rejuvenation regime, then start to slowly integrate the layering technique to expand your basic skin care routine into a more comprehensive strategy.
