We can’t stress enough how vital it is to take care of your skin by using fresh, high-quality skincare products.


Our skin is exposed to numerous environmental factors such as pollution, UV rays, and other toxins. This exposure can cause our skin to become damaged and start to show signs of aging. Using the same skincare products for a long time can cause them to lose their effectiveness, and they may even start to harbor bacteria and other harmful germs.

Checking Expiration Dates on Your Skin Care Products


Over time, using old skincare products can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and other skin problems. That’s why it’s crucial to evaluate your skincare routine regularly and get rid of any old products that are no longer serving your skin.

When you’re deciding to clean out old skincare products, it’s essential to pay attention to the expiration dates. Most skincare products come with an expiration date, and using them beyond that point can be harmful to your skin. Additionally, if a product has changed in texture, consistency, or color, it’s likely that it’s no longer good for use.

Update Your Products to Your Skin’s Needs


It’s also important to understand that as our skin changes over time, so do our skincare needs. So, the products that you used in your 20s may not be suitable for your skin in your 30s, and so on. As we age, our skin tends to become drier, and we may need more hydration and nourishment to keep it healthy and glowing.


So, when you’re looking to replace old skincare products, it’s essential to consider the specific needs of your skin. Look for high-quality skincare products that are tailored to your skin type, whether that’s oily, dry, or combination skin. Using products that are specifically formulated for your skin’s needs will ensure that you get the best possible results.


Taking care of your skin is essential, and using high-quality skincare products is an essential part of that. Regularly cleaning out old skincare products and getting new ones will help you maintain healthy, glowing skin. Remember to check expiration dates, pay attention to any changes in texture, consistency or color and consider your skin’s specific needs when selecting new products. Invest in quality skincare, and your skin will thank you for it! You may also benefit from a laser skin rejuvenation treatment, botox injections and other cosmetic procedures.

Double Peel

The Double Peel begins with a session of microdermabrasion to remove the outermost layer of skin. Our aestheticians follow up with a Vitalize Peel. 

The microdermabrasion allows the peel to penetrate deeper for amplified results, making this combined approach popular with skincare patients. If you want to introduce healing, you can try a microneedling treatment like this RF microneedling in Woodridge, IL. Chemical peels work to remove damaged layers of skin, and microneedling works by inducing a healing process that replaces damage by filling it in with collagen.

Aestheticians like the ones at Ageless Skin Rejuvenation or AuraeMD are eager to help you choose the best combination of treatments to make your spa day special.
