Want to know something? Google it!

We live in a world of technology, and everything is at our fingertips for immediate gratification. If one wants to know something or search for something all they have to do is “Google” it.  The internet is full of great information. And the internet is also full of false information.  It may be difficult to decipher what is true.  As we travel down the path of technology we could loose sight of what we need to be healthy and happy.

What the internet can’t do

The following is a list of things that one can’t get from the internet.
  • Sunshine and a good dose of fresh air!
  • Healing touch from another
  • Lymph drainage
  • Body massage
  • Facial massage
  • Reflexology

    I’m sure there are other things the internet can’t do, but touch is one of the most important missing links. 

What people are asking about skincare

Some of the most common questions individuals will search the internet for regarding skincare are:
  • How does skin react when stimulated?
  • How do products penetrate the skin?
  • What’s the best way to apply skin care products?
  • What to do when the skin is inflamed?
  • What caused that skin break-out?
  • Is the skin dehydrated? And if so, how is best to treat dehydrated skin?
  • What about that hyper pigmentation: where did it come from?

How a skincare professional can helpprofessional skin care

A professional can observe and touch the skin to get an overall picture of what is going on. A skincare professional will take life style into consideration when recommending products to help make an informed decision about what is best for YOU.  Everyone is a unique individual and the internet can only give generalities.
So when it comes to your health and self-care, be smart: put your hard earned money where you will get the most benefit!  Rely on the internet for gathering information and find a good Massage Therapist, Esthetician, or healing practitioner that will help you stay healthy with healing touch.
