S k i n [20] • # dayspamagazine • july 2018 T here's an old joke about a man who prays fervently every day to win the lottery. Years pass and fi nally, after his umpteenth request, a booming voice from the heavens responds: "Meet me halfway…buy a ticket." The message, of course, is that to get what we wish for in life—be it extreme wealth or exceptional skin—we must do our part. For your clients seeking a heaven-sent complexion, "their part" equals a wide range of skin- supporting lifestyle choices. The reality is that spectacular facial treatments will only do so much for the person who burns the candle at both ends, bakes in the sun or subsists on junk food. Moreover, if estheticians don't off er guidance about behaviors that can help or harm skin health, they're doing their clients—and their spas—a disservice. So, we sorted through the latest science and spoke with pros in the know to bring you seven key skin-saving suggestions that you should be sharing. © GETTY IMAGES Skin SAVERS From sun exposure to sleep deprivation, certain daily habits can be bad for clients' complexions. Steer them in the right direction with these seven strategies for healthier skin. by Linda Kossoff
