Building a Re-youth Program for Clients

By: Rhonda Allison
Posted: October 31, 2013, from the November 2013 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.

Editor’s note: As always, Skin Inc. magazine recommends that skin care professionals obtain the proper training before offering any new treatments in their skin care facility.

Hyperpigmentation, acne, dehydration and uneven texture are just a few skin challenges clients struggle with, but there is perhaps none more pervasive than aging. Although you may not be able to stop the inevitable hands of time, it is possible to help clients effectively fight the signs of aging and maintain a healthy, youthful appearance.

This requires an integrated re-youth plan that addresses a variety of issues depending on the client’s skin, as well as intrinsic and extrinsic factors. There are, of course, a few integral components anti-aging regimens should include to help clients achieve their goals. Understanding the primary issues that cause skin to appear aged—such as pigmentation, cellular damage and moisture loss—enable skin care professionals to address previous damage, and help restore skin to optimal health and vibrancy.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

When the skin is depleted of hydration, it loses elasticity, plumpness and luster, and will often become more susceptible to lines and wrinkles. Understanding the causes of dry skin enables skin care professionals to better treat clients, and help return the skin to a plump, dewy state.

Dry skin conditions can range from a lack of moisture, to eczema and psoriasis. Dryness could simply be an absence of moisture or, in some cases, it could mean an adequate amount of sebum is not being produced. Dry skin can be caused by intrinsic and extrinsic causes.
