Cameo 3 Step Skincare Program

I have been an aesthetician for a while now and have dealt with all age groups, with various skin types that have various skin issues. My passion is research, experimentation and looking into new products and formulas that may help.  By no means will I say I'm an expert in my field, as there is a lot to learn with many new and extraordinary skin ailments popping up all the time.
I have found maintenance, especially for our skin, is our third step to healthy living.
If you look good, you feel good and visa versa. This is yet to be proven wrong :)

So here is my Three Step Skincare Program;


Skin needs nutrients from the in side and out.
From the inside we need to drink plenty water and follow a balanced diet.
From the outside we need to keep our skin clean, moisturized and protected at least twice a day (see maintenance)

As our skin is the largest organ that covers 100% of our body, it's also the first place you will notice environmental or emotional changes to your body, such as allergies, illness and stress.  Skin will show these by either changing colour or breaking out into hives or acne.
Exercise helps the body with stress, also keeps the body healthy and may help with most allergies and illnesses. So go for a walk .....

Skin cells turn over and rebuilds every 7 to 40 days depending on age:
Children skin cells rebuilds every 7 days;
Teenagers rebuilds every 14 days;
Young adults (ages 20 to 30) rebuilds every 21 days;
Adults (Ages 30 to 45) every 21 to 30 days and
Adults (Ages 45 to 85) every 30 to 40 days
So the older we get the longer it takes to heal.

In order to keep your skin young and optimal it is very important to keep it maintained.
Every morning: clean, moisturize and protect it with sunblock;
Every evening: clean off all make-up, and moisturize before you go to bed.

Teenagers and Young adults will need to Exfoliate twice a week, however as we get older and our skin takes longer to rebuild, it may need more help in keeping the skin looking younger.

Adult skin does not only need to Exfoliate once a week, but also needs introduction to collagen, elastin, vitamins and minerals to the maintenance program.
To make sure you do so correctly and use the right formula you will need to see a licence aesthetician.

Skin care treatment (Facial) every 6 weeks;
Skin resurfacing treatment (Microdermabrasion or Peel) twice a year.

UV Treatment once a week until clear;
Maintenance once a month.
Skin resurfacing treatment (Microdermabrasion or Peel) four times a year.

Also for other problematic skin such as;
Age spots, sun damage also known as Hyperpigmention;
Spider veins and Rosacea;
Wrinkles and fine lines.
