This month, it’s all about skincare here at Beaute and for good reason!
You can have every professional treatment under the sun but if you’re still using whatever skincare products you can find in your cupboard, you’re not going to achieve the full potential of your skin health journey.
That’s why during all of February, if you make the switch to a professional skincare routine, we’ll give you $10 off every product you exchange. This means, if you bring in your stripping cleanser, too harsh exfoliant and even ill-fitting serums, we’ll take $10 off every professional product you exchange them for. It’s an amazing reward for investing in your skin!
Now, we get it. Making the switch to a professional skincare routine can feel overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start, which is where we come in.
Visit us in the salon to have an in-depth chat about your skin and skin goals with our therapists who can confidently recommend the best products to welcome into your life and perhaps even a few treatments to support you on your journey to glowing skin.
So, what’s so great about professional products anyway? As you may already know, professional products versus those from your local supermarket, chemist or online retailer can drastically vary in more ways than one.
Today, we’re sharing three key benefits of stepping up your skincare routine and why the products you’re using at home could be the key to unlocking your best skin yet in 2022.
80% of your results happen at-home
You may have heard this saying before and we assure you, it’s not just something a skin therapist says frivolously. Here’s why.
An hour skin treatment, every 4-6 weeks is an amazing way to support and maintain your skin but what about the hundreds of hours in between those appointments? If these treatments aren’t being supported at-home, then you’re not going to see the results you’re hoping for.
The treatment of your skin at home, in-between your professional appointments, truly determines the trajectory of your overall results and health of your skin. For example, if you’re coming in for regular treatments to address unwanted pigmentation but not applying SPF every day, you’re making the time and money spent on the treatment bed redundant.
Therefore, if you’re serious about making a change in your skin, and then maintaining it, you need to commit to the care of your complexion in and out of the treatment room. We assure you that once you’ve made the switch, you’ll see a serious difference in your results.
They eliminate the guesswork
If you feel overwhelmed when strolling down the skincare aisles of your favourite stores, you’re not alone. There’s so much choice available to beauty lovers these days that it’s not surprising people are choosing the wrong products for their skin!
Self-diagnosing skin conditions is one of the biggest contributors to compromised skin barriers and challenging to treat skin concerns which is why we always recommend leaving the product recommendations to the professionals.
Let’s not forget that many on-the-shelf skincare products, or those that can be purchased online, are often no cheaper than professional products! Guessing your skin type and trialing different products for your complexion isn’t always the cheaper route, in fact, it can end up being more expensive than if you booked in a consultation or introductory facial with your skin therapist.
Having a one-on-one conversation with your skin therapist about skincare needs can be a game-changing investment in your skin. With professional products being the highest quality available, and many having multitasking qualities, we can design a routine that fits within your budget, lifestyle, and time to start achieving the results you want.
It’s all about the actives
Without a doubt, the biggest difference between professional products and other skincare products is the formulations. Whilst you may find the likes of a Vitamin C serum in both settings, the way that product has been formulated will differ significantly; this goes for every step of your skincare routine – from simple cleansing to high performance serums.
The ingredients in professional-grade products are more concentrated and contain active ingredients with a low molecular weight. This means that it can penetrate much deeper into the skin than their supermarket counterparts and get to work on where it counts most – a cellular level.
Because professional products are more concentrated, you actually require less product which means your investment goes the distance. You should not need to purchase professional skincare during every visit to your salon but instead, once a quarter.
This comes back to the idea that investing in a proper skincare regime generally works out more economical because you choose quality over quantity in every possible way.
