Although society’s view of everything from preventive health to nutrition has been updated, skin care is still looked at the way it was in the 1950s: cleanse, tone, moisturize. The truth is, your mom’s skin care no longer makes the cut. From eating habits to the environment, to the use of tanning beds and prescription drugs, to skyrocketing stress levels—people’s lives have changed, but the way most think about skin care has not. Let’s change that for your clients.

  • The skin, which is the body’s largest organ, is linked to everything else that takes place within the body.
  • People who have been diagnosed with skin cancer have double the risk of developing other types of cancer when compared to those with no history of the disease.1
  • The sun is responsible for 80% of the effects of aging, and before the age of 18, 70% of the aging process has started.2
  • Stress is the No. 1 contributor of free radical damage, which is shown by an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, redness, inflammation, breakouts, tired eyes and sagging skin.3

Those are some serious numbers, and they give you more information to use in order to educate your clients about how their lifestyle choices affect their skin.
