Welcome to Gorgeous You Skincare!

My Story

Hi, my name is Phyllis. I am the creator of Gorgeous You Skincare. I decided to create Gorgeous You Skincare because like many of you, I have struggled to keep my skin looking young. In the days when I was a teenager, I didn’t really do much to my skin at all and it was gorgeous. Smooth, supple, moisturized, dark spot and wrinkle free. Little did I think about then that my skin would not stay that way.

Why I Became Interested in Skincare

As the years have passed, I realized that you have to take care of your skin. Your skin is a reflection of you; it tells a lot about you. It can reflect your age, nutritional habits, physical activity, your exposure to your environment and more. When I was young, I did as most young people do, loved to swim and be outdoors. “Soak up the sun”, as they say. I probably did not have the best exercise and dietary habits either. LOL

So thus, I have tried many products, both man-made and natural, improved my diet and exercise and tried to be environmentally cautious. Working to see what would best restore my skin and face back to its youth glow. My skin had become dry, not so supple, I had dark spots and was developing fine lines and wrinkles. Oh my!

How I Got To Where I Am

I began to extensively research my choices and the choices of others for improvement in my skin. What were those, that had expressed the same issues I was having, doing that I wasn’t doing. Those that expressed improved and better looking, gorgeous skin. I was reading and researching everything I could out there. I looked at the many products offered for skin care, both man-made and natural, and tried scores of them.

Thru my trial and error, research and listening to others who have done the same, I have come across some products that have made a noticeable difference in my skin. I pumped up my nutritional and exercise habits and became aware of the environment I was in. Everything to keep moving forward and have that gorgeous skin once more.

I feel I have been successful in my goal to have younger looking skin. Many of my friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances comment on my “gorgeous skin”. People I have met for the first time. What greater compliment than to hear, “you have gorgeous skin “. No one thinks I look my age.

Now “Gorgeous You”

I decided to share my knowledge, research, experience with products and healthy lifestyle changes to all of you that want to get back your gorgeous skin. I will share everything I have learned to help you on your way. The things that have worked for me and the things that have not.

Nothing is a guarantee to work for everyone, but through knowledge, trial and error, and to see what has worked for others and what has not, you may be able to find just the right product or action that gives you back your gorgeous skin.

I will be here to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability. Enjoy looking around Gorgeous You Skincare and if you decide to try any of my recommended products or lifestyle changes, please leave me a comment on how it is working for you. I would be very interested.

Remember there is not one answer or one product that is guaranteed to give you gorgeous skin, it can be a combination of products and/or personal actions. I am only sharing what has worked for me. Only you can say if the same works for you.

I will be posting an informative article about skincare every week. It will help you on your journey to “gorgeous skin”. Please come back to read and send me comments or questions using my comments link.

Facial Cleansing System – Improve the Look, Feel and Health of Your Skin

Importance of a Facial Cleansing System

As you go through your day your face is continually exposed to debris; dust, dirt, bacteria, viruses.  You also have a build up of old dead skin cells and oil.  All these things can clog the pores in your skin and create an unhealthy mask on your face. Without washing and cleansing your face daily, these impurities would continue to build up, masking the fresh and youthful appearance of your facial skin.  The look, feel and health of your skin is affected.

Products you may use on your face would be impaired as far as effectiveness and absorption.  They could not penetrate the layers of debris that have accumulated.  This excess debris and oil clogs the pores in your skin, creating large visible pores.  Moisture products you may use would not reach the skin, but would create an additional layer on top of this mask.  Therefore, skin would lack hydration.  Dehydrated facial skin is rough, dry, wrinkled and aged looking. This is why a good facial cleansing system is important.

Proper facial cleansing, clears the pores and impurities from your face.  It preps your face for the use of those products that will penetrate and hydrate. Any cosmetics used will look smoother and more radiant.  Old dead skin cells will be washed away.

Clean facial skin is a must for maintaining a young and healthy appearance with a radiant, youthful glow. That is why it is important to develop a daily facial cleansing system.

Starting with the Right Products

Gorgeous You Skincare

There are many different facial cleansing products available.  Not all products may be right for your skin.  Consider your facial skin:  is it dry, oily, combination, broken out or sensitive.  Choose your product based on what you feel your skin type is. Also you will want to choose a product that is pH balanced.

For dry skin you will want to stay away from alcohol based products or facial scrubs as they will encourage more dryness.  You will want to choose a more creamy cleanser.

For oily skin make sure the cleanser is oil-free.

If you are bothered with break outs there are cleansers that contain salicylic acid or hydrogen peroxide.

If your skin is sensitive you will want to stay away from products that contain irritants like salicylic or glycolic acids, hydrogen peroxide, added fragrances, You may want to consider products that contain aloe or chamomile. If you have very sensitive skin you might check with your dermatologist or immunologist about testing for different sensitivities.

If you have normal skin, most cleansers will work for you.

Choosing the right products is Step One in choosing your facial cleansing system that will improve the look, feel and health of your facial skin.  .

Using the Correct Technique

There are many different cleansing tools available today, with new products appearing everyday.  Most people have grown up using a washcloth and soap to cleanse their face.  Despite growing up with this technique, it is usually not the best.  Washcloths have a rough surface and we tend to lather and scrub our face.  Maybe leaving it irritated and red.

Not the TLC we are trying to accomplish for our facial skin.

Facial cloths that lather and become a moist towelette offer a more tender cleansing method. Some contain soap and others a soap and a moisturizer. These do a good job removing impurities and makeup from our skin.

Neutrogena® offers excellent facial cleansing products to fit all needs:  Deep Cleaning and Purifying, HydroBoost Moisture Enhance, Naturals, Foaming and Oil-Free products.

Neutrogena® is a brand of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies. It is the #1 dermatologist-recommended skincare brand.

There are also brushes available for cleansing. They use a sonic technique to oscillate while you apply your own cleanser.  The brush head is available from soft to more firm.  Your cleanser lathers and the brush head removes dead skin cells and impurities from your skin while unclogging your facial pores.  For dry or sensitive skin using a brush may be too harsh.

Clarasonic® offers brush heads that customize to your specific needs:  Daily Radiance, Sensitive, Acne Cleansing and Deep Pore; as well as several different styles of cleansing devices.

Clarasonic is the #1 dermatologist-recommended cleansing brush.

 

A favorite of mine is the the Silicone Pad with tiny silicone bristles. You apply your choice of cleanser.  Very effective for removing dead skin cells, cleansing pores and does a good job removing dirt and oil.  It is gentle enough to use to remove dry, flaking skin. You control the pressure. I noticed an immediate difference in my facial pore size after once use.

Silicone pads are inexpensive and can be purchased on

The Results

Once you determine the right cleansing product to use for your type of skin and decide on the correct tool for you, you are definitely on the road to healthier, happier, more youthful facial skin.  A daily regime and you will maintain your facial health and youthful glow as you age.  This is the first step in looking younger.
