Helpful Tips for Improving Hair Removal Treatments & Daily Beauty Routines
If you feel like your hair removal and beauty routines have become stale, or they just aren’t working the way you want them to, then it’s time to make some positive changes! We have gathered together a collection of helpful tips and advice so you can freshen things up and get the most from your hair removal and beauty routines.
Here, you’ll learn simple things that you can do to get permanently hair-free skin, a more vibrant complexion, and healthy-looking skin with just a few easy adjustments and a handful of amazing products. Let’s get right to it and start off with simple ways to get better results from your Silk’n IPL hair removal device.
Prep Your Skin for Best IPL Hair Removal Results
One thing that some people overlook when performing a hair removal treatment with their IPL device is preparing their skin to achieve optimum results. It’s quite simple but can really make a big difference in how well your IPL device will work with each treatment session.
It’s important to note that when we say ‘prepping’ your skin, we aren’t talking about just the things you do immediately before using your IPL device, but also the day-to-day habits that help promote healthy skin. Here’s how to make sure your skin is in ideal condition for your IPL treatments:
- Drink plenty of water, as it is essential to so many aspects of good health, including that of our skin. So, be sure you’re staying on top of your daily water intake.
- Moisturize your skin, especially during those seasons where the air is dryer than usual. We recommend using a good-quality moisturizer that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy or heavy, and using it regularly to keep your skin soft and smooth.
- Avoid sun exposure before and after your IPL treatments. Use sunscreen, seek out shade, and cover up those treatment areas to prevent any potential complications associated with excessive sun exposure.
- Shave BEFORE you use your IPL device. This is because in order for IPL to work, there needs to be a portion of the hair still inside the follicles. If you use a method like waxing, the hair will be entirely removed. Shaving helps provide a smooth surface for the device to glide on, but also leaves a portion of the hair in the follicle for better treatment results.
In case you’re in need of a refresher on how exactly an IPL device works to remove hair permanently, we have written a very detailed and helpful reference for you, entitled IPL Hair Removal Treatments Explained. It should clear up any questions you may have on the technology behind intense pulsed light hair removal.
Now that your skin is in great health and you’re all ready to begin your IPL treatments, let us introduce you to the pinnacle of at-home intense pulsed light hair removal devices; the Silk’n Infinity. The Infinity combines all the technologies that have made Silk’n famous, and takes the next steps to get better results in less time than ever before.
With the Infinity, Silk’n combines advanced IPL technology with the advantages of galvanic energy to speed up the treatment cycles and achieve long lasting results, faster. As the Infinity passes over the treatment area, an electrode on the tip of the device warms the skin with galvanic energy. This energy stimulates the treatment area, increasing blood flow and encouraging the pores of the skin to open wider, thereby allowing each light pulse to penetrate deeper in to the root of the hair.
In addition, the Infinity also features an ultra-long-life emitter bulb capable of producing 400,000 intense light pulses. That’s more than enough for an entire lifetime of treatments. Truly, the Silk’n Infinity is the last hair removal device you’ll ever need.
Slow Down Your Skin’s Clock
Taking great care of your skin can definitely make a big impact on how well your hair removal treatments work, and those same tips can also help maintain the youthful appearance of your skin and reduce the visible signs of aging. Of course, there are other things you can do to help slow down the clock and keep your skin vibrant and glowing.
Don’t underestimate the effects that a healthy diet can have on the look and feel of your skin, too. In fact, many of the foods we eat contain vitamins and nutrients that are essential to skin health. Vitamins A, E, and C are critical to maintaining healthy skin that is able to retain its elasticity and repair itself. Protein, iron, and fiber are also key to healthy, glowing skin.
Furthermore, there have been many studies that show the correlation between anti-oxidants and healthy, youthful skin. Fortunately, anti-oxidants are easy to work in to your diet as they are naturally found in many of the foods and drinks we consume regularly. Coffee, tea, wine, fruits, vegetables, and even chocolate are known to be good sources of antioxidants.
Other sources include fish such as salmon and mackerel, as well as foods like nuts, seeds, peppers, sweet potatoes, and avocados. For more information on the effects of antioxidants, read our supplementary article titled Make Your Skin Glow With Antioxidants.
To give your skin an extra helping hand in reversing the signs of aging, try the Silk’n Titan Skin Tightening and Lifting Device. This technological wonder utilizes a combination of three types of energy; LED light energy, Bipolar RF energy, and IR energy.
This blend of energies helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. This stimulus also helps kickstart the skin’s natural repair and restoration processes, minimizing the appearance of spots and discoloration.
With the Silk’n Titan, you’ll notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, a more even and smooth skin tone, and a more vibrant complexion. The time for healthier, glowing skin is now, and the Silk’n Titan can help you achieve it!
Tips to Help Minimize Acne
You shouldn’t go one more day feeling helpless about acne problems. There are many simple changes you can make to your daily routines that help minimize the intensity and frequency of acne breakouts.
For example, we all know that regular cleansing of the skin can help reduce acne, but did you know that OVER washing can actually make it worse? It’s true! Overly aggressive scrubbing or using a cleanser that contains harsh chemicals can damage and dry out your skin, leading to an increase in acne breakouts. It’s best to use a gentle cleanser that is formulated specifically for acne-prone skin, and scrub the surface gently but thoroughly to remove excess oil and dirt.
It’s also best to avoid picking or popping pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. This often results in damage to the skin, irritation, and pain. For cases of acne that are more severe or are worsening, it’s always advisable to speak to your doctor to determine the best course of action for treatment.
Be Smart About Your Facial Cleansers
No beauty routine would be complete without an effective way to clean your face, leaving your skin fresh, light, and rejuvenated. Start by choosing a gentle cleanser that is best suited for your skin. There’s no one-size-fits-all cleanser for all skin types, so whether you’ve got dry or oily skin, or a combination, be sure to look for a good quality cleanser that matches your skin type for best results.
To go with your ideal cleanser, it definitely helps to have a better way to scrub that isn’t too rough or too light. Say hello to the Silk’n Fresh Facial Cleansing Brush! With super-soft bristles, gentle rotating motion, 360° vibration technology, and a convenient built-in cleanser dispenser that provides just the right amount as you clean, the Silk’n Pure is the perfect way to quickly clean your skin and leave it feeling incredibly fresh.
