What is your new year’s resolution? A new diet, more exercise, maybe a new job, or even a vacation long overdue? Or is this the year you finally fix the one body issue that concerns you most, from abdominal changes after pregnancy to stubborn frown lines that make you look like your mother—when she’s angry.
20’s: In our twenties, skin starts to slow down its renewal process and things like dryness and lines can start to form. Earlier damage from sun exposure can also surface with increased freckling and blotchy pigmentation. In this decade it is important to make sure your skin product regimen is correctly tailored for your skin. Retin-A based products (such as our Esana Essential) would be important to stop small lines from forming and to maintain collagen production.

The winter cold, less exposure to natural light, and dry, overheated rooms all bring special challenges to your skin care regimen. The ESANA Essential Signature Line offers all the products you need to retain a healthy radiance throughout the winter months.
No matter how youthful your face may be, a wrinkled and sun-damaged neck and décolletage area is aging and detracts from a healthy, young appearance. As we age, our skin’s main support structure, collagen, starts to break down, and the fat under the skin deteriorates. Consequently, our skin becomes drier, thinner, with less volume.
How much would you risk for a glowing tan all year long? Some shocking statistics–indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners have a 74 percent greater chance of developing melanoma than those who never tanned indoors and also face increased risk for both squamous and basal cell carcinomas. Even spray tanning can increase lung inflammation as well as the risk for lung, breast, and colon cancer. Here’s a brief summary of the dangers of both:
