Green City of Philadelphia Advises Clients on Optimal Skincare Timing


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2015 -- Green City, the beloved skincare boutique that offers alternatives to waxing in its salon in Philadelphia's Center City, encourages each client to develop a skincare routine personalized to individual skin type and lifestyle. Using all-natural products, Green City helps clients to discover the right mix of products, creating a routine that reveals fresh, glowing and youthful skin. In addition to choosing the right products, Green City would also like to highlight the importance of correct timing in skincare routines to get the best results possible.

Recently, an Elle Magazine article called "Time Zones," written by Megan O'Neill, broke down the correct products to use during both morning and nighttime routines, highlighting the ideal ingredients to use during each regimen.

According to O'Neill, morning skincare routines should focus on the protection of skin and prevention of skin damage and inflammation. A primary product in any morning skincare routine should be a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen to protect skin from damaging UV rays. Sunscreen should be combined with antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals (which contribute to the aging process) and reduce inflammation. One ingredient O'Neill also recommends for morning use is salicylic acid. Touted for its acne-banishing benefits, salicylic acid also exfoliates skin, boosting radiance. Since salicylic acid also soothes sebaceous glands, it can be combined with other calming ingredients like chamomile and aloe.

During evening skincare routines, says O'Neill, individuals should take advantage of the body's natural repair processes during sleep. These nighttime regimens can include vitamin A derivatives that renew and replenish skin and increase collagen. The use of growth factors at night also improves skin tone and elasticity.
