The Real Deal on Skin Care Devices

Women always want to look and feel beautiful that’s why they are constantly seeking ways on how to maintain their appearance. As we all know, having a perfect skin has always been equated to beauty. Blame it on the media and the standards that they have imposed on beauty. Using moisturizers, slathering anti aging and whitening creams, undergoing cosmetic procedures and getting injectables such as collagen and botox are among the popular ways that women do to beautify their skin. Using skin care devices is also another way of maintaining the skin’s youthfulness and beauty. But the million dollar question is, do these devices really work?

The answer? Well, both. It’s a yes and a no. Some skin care devices really help in improving the skin while some devices create more damage and havoc to the skin. Not all skin care devices are created the same. Some are just too harsh to the skin that’s why you really have to be careful in choosing what device to use or to buy. When choosing a skin care device, always do a research first. This way you would be able to know if it works and if it is safe to use.

Skin care devices are there to enhance the skin but as always, you have to start inside your body. Drink lots of water, eat a healthy and a balanced diet, exercise well, get at least eight hours of sleep everyday, and of course pamper yourself in the spa once in a while.

How to Achieve Younger Looking Skin

As we get older, wrinkles, age spots, fine lines, and other signs of aging start to appear on our faces. This is probably one of the major concerns of women all over the world. No one wants to look ugly and old, so a lot of women seek various solutions to solve this problem. There are actually a lot of ways to look young and vibrant no matter what age bracket you are in. Here are some of them.

1. Proper diet and exercise.

As cliche-ish as it may sound, proper diet and exercise really helps a lot in making us look good and feel good. Eating foods rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E and C can definitely help make our skin look fresh and radiant.

2. Drink lots of water.

Water, water, water. Drinking 8-10 glasses a day really helps in hydrating the skin. Our skin needs moisture and it needs to be constantly replenished so remember to drink lots of water.

3. Moisturize.

Just like what I’ve said a while ago, our skin needs moisture and it needs to be constantly replenished. Moisturizers help seal in moisture in our skin. Using moisturizers makes our skin feel more softer and healthier. Dry skin isn’t only unsightly but it also makes a person look old, so always moisturize.

4. Cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery may not be the safest way to look younger but still, a lot of women still swear by it. This treatment is not for everyone because, number one, it’s way too expensive, and second, it might cause infections and other nasty side effects. But if you have the money to burn and you’re willing to undergo the pain and inconvenience, then cosmetic surgery is the way to go.

5. Botox and collagen shots.

Botox and collagen shots are probably the quickest way to look younger. These treatments may give you younger looking skin instantly but the effect is not permanent unlike other treatments. It’s also an invasive treatment and it could also lead to some side effects such as bruising and muscle weakness.

6. Skin care devices.

Using skin care devices is also another way to look young. Skin care devices, such as the FSD, helps reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. This skin care device used by the spa that I go to increases the collagen production of the skin which makes the skin look noticeably younger in every use.
