Well hello there,
One of the most alluring “myths” for a vast majority of women when it comes to our skin is that of a “miracle” product. Let’s nickname them “Wonder Women” because they always seems to be wondering about a new miracle cream or treatment.
So today, I want to bust out some facts, around the concept… of, is there such a thing as a miracle cream?
Believing in “Miracles” is a massive market. So while it might seem like an obvious myth to some, to others the idea that there might be one “miracle product” that holds all the ingredients available to transform your skin in one application is a myth that many of you buy into. Literally.
While I do not doubt that some products results are miraculous, when the right ingredients are paired with the needs of a clients skin. Your skin is the reflection of what is going on inside your body, and nearly all skin conditions, from eczema to acne to stretch marks are the manifestations of your body's internal needs, including its nutritional need.
What does this have to do with the myth of a miracle cream? A lot. As it debunks the concept that 1 thing can cure all.
For luminous, glowing skin, most people only turn to the use of professional topical cosmedical products. However, just treating outer problem does little to address the root cause of the problem with skin problems: poor nutrition.
The sad reality is the majority of professional skincare experts fail to make the link between healthy skin and a healthy diet. They continue to push a miracle cream to solve all skin dilemmas. Disappointed and no longer convinced, clients continue on the quest for perfect skin and get seduced by glossy advertisements in high-end magazines and department stores
So here you have it: Whilst application of topical active ingredients can do wonders for improving the appearance of certain skin conditions, to truly see a long lasting improvement, a holistic look must be taken. Advice on both the probable biochemical cause of the skin condition combined with correct topical application of cosmedical products is paramount to achieving optimum skin health.
Combining the link between nutrition and the skin is key to building a successful skincare business.
Scientific research shows that the skin responds particularly well to certain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These nutrients nourish the skin, making it appear radiant, glowing and healthy. The first step to youthful, healthy looking skin is to optimise general health.
Nutrients are needed for healthy, radiant skin (these include: Zinc, Essential fatty acids, Vitamin C & Vitamin B).
What do you think? Do you think there is such a thing as a 'miracle cream'? What do believe makes the biggest difference to the health of your skin or the skin of your clients?
