Beautiful skin starts at home. The weekly, monthly, or quarterly treatments you receive here in our offices are essential for perfecting and enhancing your skin, but you only see us a few times a year. The care your skin gets at home, on the days you aren’t coming in for a treatment, is just as important, if not more so, than the treatments you receive here since it happens much more frequently.
So you want to improve your at-home skincare, but don’t know where to start. Don’t worry; we are here to help. This guide will walk you through the basics, but you are also welcome to come in or contact us for personalized advice and product recommendations. We want to help you achieve your best skin.
Consistency Is Key
Want better skin? The first key to a professional skincare routine is commitment. The best results come from daily, repeated use of professional grade skincare products. Start by figuring out a routine and then commit to doing it daily. The good news is, great skincare doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Just 5-10 minutes a day can dramatically improve the quality and appearance of your skin.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat
If you’re short on time, stick to the basics with your skincare. Daily cleansing is essential. It removes dirt, oil, makeup, and buildup from the skin. At a minimum you should cleanse your skin every evening to remove anything from the skin before you go to bed.
Everyone also needs a good moisturizer, even if you have oily skin. A moisturizer helps to balance and soothe the skin. It also keeps cells plump and hydrated, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Without a moisturizer your skin may go into overproduction mode, producing more oil than is needed and leaving your skin feeling shiny, oily, and irritated. Moisturize after every cleanse.
The finally skincare must-do is sun protection. Many patients don’t realize that the sun is one of the primary factors driving skin aging. Use sun protection daily, even if you don’t plan on spending time in the sun. Repeated, daily exposure to UV rays take their toll on your skin, even if it is just for 5 minutes at a time. If you’re going to be in the sun for an extended period of time, use a high quality sunscreen and reapply often.
