Recently, in a bid to get stronger, healthier and of course lose some weight, I started resistance training. The first few weeks were painful, especially since I hadn’t used my muscles to do more than climb a few steps, lift my handbag and hold chaturanga pose at a weekly yoga class. But within a few weeks I started to notice my body tone up – except for my thighs.
They say don’t sweat the little things. But when it comes to skincare, focussing on the little things regularly goes a long way, because it’s the little things that add up to ensure your skin looks healthy and youthful. That means keeping your skin hydrated with the right moisturiser for your skin type; protected daily with sunscreen and pampered with potent serums. But it also means taking the time for that monthly facial or in my case a toning and rejuvenating treatment like the PicoToning Laser.
Every now and then your skin requires a nudge in the right direction. A gentle reminder that it can be bright, plump, blemish free. Given my age (early 30s) and the fact that I had recently been through a particularly bad bout of congested pores and breakouts, my skin needed some cajoling into looking and feeling good again.
When it comes to skin care, it’s never one size fits all. As I spend hours trying, testing and reviewing skin care products, I am acutely aware that what transforms my dull, parched skin, giving it life and a gorgeous glow may not necessarily have the same effect on someone else’s skin. Similarly, a product that works well on my friend who has large pores would have disastrous effects on mine.
