Revamp Your Skincare Routine with These Beauty Tips

Great skin can be difficult to achieve without the right skincare routine. Over time, change in skin texture and health can require a reassessment of what’s working and what isn’t in your skincare routine. If your skin is losing its radiant glow, it might be time to revamp your routine with these tips:

Start with a clean slate

While a diligent skin care routine can help clear away dirt that’s accumulated over the day, it can be difficult to thoroughly clean your skin without professional treatment. Start your skincare routine by investing in a professional facial treatment then develop a daily skincare routine to prolong the results. Options like chemical peels and laser rejuvenation are purposely designed to reset skin health by removing dead and damaged skin cells.

Unlike over-the-counter products that are designed to be one-size-fits-all, professional solutions are tailored to address your top concerns and come with long-term maintenance instructions to ensure long-lasting results. Bringing in a professional also has the added benefit of getting personalized, professional care that can help you build a long-term skincare routine that addresses these concerns and fits your lifestyle.

Take Your Lifestyle into Account

Diet, hydration, exercise, and sleep are all factors that can influence your skin’s appearance. For the best skin, it’s important to take these factors into account. For starters, try getting at least eight hours of sleep a night, making sure to remove any makeup before going to bed. During the day, drink plenty of water during the day to keep your skin hydrated and glowing and stick to a well-balanced diet. Love salty foods? That’s fine to include them so long as you’re eating them in moderation. High sodium, processed goods can dry out skin and cause inflammation, leaving some patients with uneven skin tone. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies combined with a balance of protein and grains can ensure your skin stays clear and beautiful.

Exfoliate Regularly

Gentle exfoliation liquids are quickly taking the beauty market by storm, and for good reason. This new take on at-home exfoliation uses less potent chemicals and acids to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and leave skin glowing between professional visits. As liquid exfoliators are less abrasive than the kind you’d find used for a chemical peel, they’re safe for weekly use. For patients who prefer old fashion physical exfoliation, we recommend keeping at-home treatments to two or three times a week. This helps ensure healthy skin doesn’t dry out or become irritated.

Go Au Natural

After years of extravagant makeup trends flooding Instagram and other social media sites, 2019 is projected to be the year of embracing your natural beauty. With that said, invest in the skincare products that are designed for your skin type. Cleansers, toners, and moisturizers can help keep skin clear underneath barely-there makeup. For best results, consider investing in tinted moisturizers with SPF. This can not only keep your face protected from harmful UV rays, but also hydrated in case of dry desert weather.
