Giving Love To Your Skin

Harsh weather elements, environmental pollution, hectic lifestyles and even frequent mask-wearing... these and several more factors can cause various sorts of problems for our skin. Thus I'm sure we all understand that proper skin care is crucial, and consequently we're no strangers to the entire gamut of skin care products on the market that purportedly serve to repair skin damage or enhance skin beauty.

But do you know the dangers that lie within many of these products we see so often on the shelves? Substances such as Parabens (acting as a preservative), Alcohol (to give the skin a 'cooling' sensation) as well as Triclosan (an anti-bacterial agent) are just some ingredients commonly found in skin "care" products that are at best questionable to our skin or health, and at worst, potentially downright harmful.

Our skin, being the largest organ of our body, hence deserves a lot more love! That's why I'm eager to share with you a skin care line that's safe, clean and naturally healthy for everyone, and is recommended at many beauty spas and clinics - DR. KEITH CHRYSLER. Their products are all "STAMP FREE" - meaning they contain no SLS/SLES, Triclosan, Alcohol, Mineral Oil/MIT and Parabens - chemicals known to be detrimental to our bodies.

Having tried out DR. KEITH CHRYSLER's skin care products for a couple of months myself, I have found them to be effective and beneficial, so here's a review of some of the items!

As someone who has the habit of applying masks, I got to say that the DermaClean Clearapeutic Instant Bac Masque and DermaClean Clearapeutic Refiner Gel Masque are pretty convenient to use. At night, after putting on my toner and serum, I simply add a thin layer of the mask on my face, and my skin looks really good the next day! Alternatively, you can put on a thick layer of the mask for about 10 to 20 minutes, then wash off thereafter.

There's a difference between the Instant Bac Masque and Refiner Gel Masque - the former has a whitish appearance and is for use on more pimple-affected skin. It has greatly helped me manage breakouts especially around my chin area where irritation occurs from wearing disposable masks over extended periods. 

The Refiner Gel Masque on the other hand has a more transparent characteristic and is particularly good against blackheads as well as lightening the skin. If you experience redness on your face due to sensitivity, just applying a thin layer of the Refiner Gel Masque for about 10 minutes then washing it off with cold water will considerably lessen the redness.

Next is the DermaClean Purify Sebo Serum. For those who have a tendency to squeeze your pimples, you'll discover that your pores turn black, and scarring may develop after that. This serum helps to lighten such acne scars. 

Importantly, whenever your pimples start to erupt, press out a single pump of this serum and dab it over those problem spots. Then apply a layer of the aforementioned mask overnight, and you'll find that the pimples are visibly reduced the next day!

The above serum can also be used together with DR. KEITH CHRYSLER's Total Solution Skin Repair Hydro Gel, a moisturizer that comes in the form of a clear, colourless gel. What I like about this moisturizer is that it's not sticky and feels very light, which is very suitable for my pimple-prone skin that doesn't react well to dense moisturizing cream.

If you want, you may conveniently use this moisturizer as a hydrating mask as well. Similarly, before going to bed, apply a thicker layer of the gel on your face without any massaging, and wash it off with water the next morning. 

And a sunscreen that doubles up as a concealer? DR. KEITH CHRYSLER's Total Solution Diamond Cover Perfector SPF35 PA+++ provides just that. All you have to do is spread a tad of the sunscreen over your face, and you'll notice your skin tone looking brighter. The tint doesn't wear off even after a few hours; instead it becomes even more natural after some time. There also isn't any oily feeling, and it really gives your face a nice radiance.

So for those who wish to prevent sun damage and on top of that prefer the appearance of wearing light make-up, this product is ideal as it's quick to use, and of course it saves you from having to buy additional cosmetics!

Last but not least, the DR. KEITH CHRYSLER Hydra Sensi Crystal Glow Polish is an exfoliant that I find pretty amazing. Your pores usually get clogged after a week or two as the result of continued use of cosmetics or other facial products, thus it's essential that we exfoliate our skin.

When I rub the Hydra Sensi Crystal Glow Polish over my face in a repeated circular motion, an astonishing amount of dirt and other impurities comes off. As someone who puts on make-up regularly, oftentimes my make-up isn't thoroughly removed, so I will use this exfoliant about two to three times a week. With frequent exfoliation, the size of my pores has reduced, and it's rather evident because people around me have commented on this too!

All in all, whether it's a mask, moisturizer or sunscreen, the above products from DR. KEITH CHRYSLER are all highly recommended as you can safely use them without worrying about any side effects! Remember to give love to your skin by choosing only skin care products that don't contain harmful ingredients in them.
