With any service at any spa they will tell you: 'Drink Plenty of Water'. This is my mantra to all of my clients, especially the ones that are undergoing the 'electric modalities' (Microcurrent Non-Surgical Face Lifts, LED Light Therapy, Laser, etc). When you spend big money to improve your skin, especially with the modalities above, it's important to be properly hydrated. These modalities release amino acids, break up fat cells, produce collagen and elastin that need the water to transport to essential areas of the skin. When receiving a facial or massage, it's important that the toxins we have pushed down to your main lymph gland get flushed out as soon as possible. Not drinking enough water will cause those toxins to affect your health and cause any improvements made to reverse. Stay Hydrated. So think about where you should start in good skincare before you open up your wallet to treatments that can improve the look of your skin - but only if you stay hydrated.

Any skincare professional, doctor, teacher...dare I say intelligent person would tell you that Sunscreen will keep years on your skin and reduce the risk of skin cancer. I was a late bloomer on skincare intelligence: I spent my teen years slathering butter on my skin and roasting, literally, in the sun. By the age of 20, I was combating dark spots, freckles and sun fungus. It's not like there was a lot of talk in those days of sunscreen . So now I have established I am human and have not practiced perfect skincare my whole life - and well, it wasn't until I hit 40 that I realized that I needed to educate myself on keeping my skin healthy (And then Divas was born!). It is never too late to practice good skincare, healthy eating, exercise...you name it! Below is a very good video showing the hidden damage done to our skin. Remember: Physical Sunscreen (zinc and titanium dioxide) will protect you longer and better verses Chemical Sunscreen. Think Chemical sunscreen for daily things - driving around, very little sun exposure (re=apply often). Think physical when out in the sun for a prolonged period (don''t forget to reapply)Please remember that overcast days are the worst - most people will not apply sunscreen as they don't feel the heat...it''s not the heat...it's the UVA and UVB rays.
