I was in the elevator of the downtown dwelling that I call home in Denver, Colorado when I met a dear neighbor I had not seen for awhile. She is a charming and beautiful lady, in her seventies, yet doesn't look a day over fifty! I have known her for quite some time and she just happens to be an Osmotics' devotee...for the past 12 years!! She proceeded to tell me that she had attended a wedding where she reunited with many friends she had not seen in fifteen to twenty years. Several came over after the ceremony, cornered her and exclaimed "You don't have a %$#D!@& wrinkle on your face!!! What have you done?? She giggled and simply replied, well I do take care of my skin religiously and I use Osmotics. Well as you can imagine this was music to my ears and I had a grin from ear to ear all weekend long. This is not a unique story as we hear it daily from lovely ladies (and gentlemen) of all ages, races, ethnicities, and diverse backgrounds! It's what drives me, motivates me and keeps me up late at night ....it's the reason I'm passionate about what I do!
But also, it really does prove the point that consistency is vital to keeping your skin healthy and looking it's best. Believe me there is no one magic product that will accomplish what a sensible, science based skin care regimen can do throughout the years. The skin is an amazing, and complicated organ and will hold up quite well under the right conditions. You may be using an incredible anti-aging cream nightly but if you skip daily sun protection, it's a complete waste. If you are not using the appropriate cleanser for your skin,(over zealous cleansing or leaving residue behind) this can have a negative effect on the wonderful benefits of your treatment products. And if you use a regimen for just a few weeks and then stop and then start it (yes, I know this does happen!) you're not going to get optimal results. This seems like common sense but many times we don't apply it to our skin care regimen. Think of it like exercise.....you need a disciplined program of consistent workouts to see results, and to maintain those results you must be consistent. Not just for a week or a month but for a lifetime!
An effective skin care regimen works synergistically to keep the skin healthy and beautiful while preventing signs of aging. And unlike exercise, it only takes about 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night..... a small price to pay to be the envy of all your friends at seventy!!!
