There’s a lot to be said about do-it-yourself beauty treatments. For one, it’s affordable which is a huge plus for many Filipinas who want the most value for their money. DIY beauty treatments are also quite effective, as long as you can find one that’s “hiyang” for you. In addition, it can also inspire a sense of pride for those using natural ingredients, in a manner of speaking, especially with the growing concern regarding sustainability and protecting the environment.
However, DIY beauty treatments are also huge undertakings that require time. And in today’s fast-paced world where women are always on the go, it’s admittedly difficult to set aside some time to buy and blend ingredients—much less actually perform or apply the treatment itself. More than that, doing things yourself increases the risk of something going wrong with your skin due to your self-created products, procedures, and treatments. This can result in side effects that can leave your skin worse off than before. As a case in point, consider how many people these days seem to like using baking soda on their skin, which is quite bad since it’s a basic substance that can disrupt the acid mantle of the skin.
Make no mistake, there’s nothing wrong if you’re a fan and a practitioner of DIY beauty. It’s practical, and economical, and it can be quite fun. But if you want to have truly healthy and beautiful skin beginning this 2019, the best solution, in our opinion, is to seek professional skincare. To back that recommendation up, here is a convenient list of reasons why you should let the pros take care of your skin.
Skincare professionals offer the latest in advanced and scientifically proven skincare treatments
A professional skincare clinic, especially one experienced in treating modern Filipina skin, offers the kind of skin treatments that you can’t get anywhere else. These treatments don’t just involve specially formulated lotions, ointments, and washes, but also highly advanced skin care equipment that are designed to be used in specialized procedures, whether it’s microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, or fractional needling therapy. With all these at skin care professional’s disposal and combined with their own expertise, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a consumer skincare product that can give you the same results.
Skincare professionals can analyze your skin more accurately
Giving yourself a skin treatment usually comes down to picking the most well-reviewed skin care products, buying them, and then applying them yourself. While there’s nothing wrong with this approach, there’s some chance that the skin treatment products you’ve bought actually aren’t fit for your skin type. They may still work in improving your skin, but they won’t be as effective as when you’ve managed to buy products that actually fit your skin profile.
Skincare professionals have the knowledge and equipment necessary to figure out what skin type you really have. In doing so, they’ll be able to recommend treatments and skin care regimens that are perfect for your type of skin. This eliminates any guesswork on your part, which results in a much higher effectivity and a lower risk of skin complications or allergic reactions.
Skincare professionals have the equipment and skills to treat complicated skin conditions
If you suffer from pimples, other types of acne, or any other longstanding skin condition, then you know that trying to treat it by yourself can sometimes result in your skin’s condition getting worse. For example, popping pimples can result in skin irritation, infection, and scarring. Scratching warts, on the other hand, can end up spreading the virus that causes the warts, thus infecting nearby healthy skin.
By getting a professional to handle your skin problems, you can take advantage of their specialized and medically proven treatments, ensuring that your skin problems are addressed without exacerbating them. They’ll also be able to recommend the right products you can use at home to help prevent your skin condition’s reoccurrence.
Skincare professionals can give you the after-treatment advice and care that you need to keep your skin healthy and attractive
Besides giving you the effective and intensive skin care treatment that your specific skin type needs, skincare professionals can also hook you up with the right products and educate you on the proper ways to take better care of your skin. This personalized approach is just as valuable as the skin treatment itself, as it helps you identify what you’ve been doing wrong, allowing you to stop these habits or practices before they can damage your skin even further. It also helps you pick up the good skincare habits that you need to ensure that your skin continues to look young and beautiful even after your treatments.
Skincare professionals can answer your skin health-related questions much more effectively than you Googling or asking your friends for answers
In trying to self-diagnose a skin condition, you could be buying a one-way ticket to make it a whole lot worse. By going to a professional skincare clinic, you can ask their in-house medical doctors or aestheticians about what your condition actually is, and what you can do to help resolve it. They’ll have the knowledge and expertise to tell you exactly what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. This obviously results in your skin condition being treated much more effectively, and you know what’s required to address it in the future.
There’s more to your skin than meets the eye, and you need a skincare partner with the knowledge to help you understand each and every facet of the largest organ in your body. More importantly, a professional skincare partner can provide you with safe, comprehensive, and science-based treatments that’s best suited for your skin, so you can achieve that flawless complexion you’ve always wanted.
