What is my complexion?
Your complexion is the appearance, color, and texture of your skin. A glowing, healthy complexion not only makes you look younger and more alive, but it also makes you feel invigorated and full of confidence.
An essential approach to enhancing your complexion is to look at your lifestyle and see whether you’re looking after your skin as well as you could.
How do I treat skin problems that spoil my complexion?
There are many skin problems that can affect the smoothness of your skin and flaws that spoil its appearance. Horizons Health & Wellness offers a range of aesthetic treatments, including scar removal, photorejuvenation, and skin resurfacing, to improve your complexion and reduce any flaws.
Horizons Health & Wellness uses advanced technologies like the Icon™ aesthetic system, which delivers fractional laser energy to treat problems such as:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
Loose facial skin
Telangiectasia, or spider veins, is a tiny network of red, blue, or purple blood vessels that commonly affects the face. It’s unsightly, but usually not harmful. A series of Icon treatments at Horizons Health & Wellness can rid you of spider veins and make a significant difference to your complexion.
How can I improve my complexion?
The main considerations for improving your complexion are:
Sun exposure in moderation provides you with essential vitamin D and makes you feel better, but too much sun can wreak havoc on your skin. The UV rays in sunlight accelerate the development of wrinkles and sagging skin, cause age spots and other flaws, and can lead to skin cancer.
Smoking reduces blood flow in your skin, making you paler and depriving your skin of nutrients and oxygen. Smoking also reduces collagen and elastin production, so your skin is more prone to wrinkling and sagging. Squinting and pursing your lips repeatedly while you smoke also causes wrinkles.
Diet and exercise
A good complexion requires proper nutrition, hydration, and healthy blood flow. Review your diet and how much exercise you get — there’s almost certainly room for improvement. You’d probably benefit from drinking more water, too. Many people don’t take in enough fluids each day. An easy formula to remember for MINIMUM recommended water intake is 1oz for each pound of body weight (for example, 150lbs bodyweight =150oz water/day).
Skin needs to be free of dirt and bacteria to allow a healthy complexion to shine through. However, stripping away all the natural oils in your skin can make it dry and flaky. Gentle cleansing and exfoliation and regular moisturizing are vital for a glowing complexion.
Horizons Health & Wellness offers a range of skin care products from BeautyCounter® that are entirely non-toxic and gentle on your skin.
