Read on to learn some of our tips for keeping your skin healthy, hydrated, and looking great!
Daily skin care essentials
If you take a moment to think about all of the things your skin is exposed to each day, it can be mind-boggling. In addition to the sun’s damaging rays, pollutants in the atmosphere and drying air and wind can all take a toll on our appearance and not only dull our skin but cause premature wrinkling, hyperpigmentation, and other issues. As a result, we recommend doing each of the following on a daily basis:
- Cleanse with a high-quality skin cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type. Our dermatologists can help you determine which type of cleanser you need based on an evaluation of your skin, as well as whether you might benefit from products such as face brushes or other cleansing devices.
- Hydrate your skin with a moisturizer if needed. While some people do not require daily moisture, most people can benefit from a quality moisturizer that keeps the skin sufficiently hydrated. This can, in turn, help reduce inflammation, decrease wrinkles, and even help with the absorption of anti-aging products.
- Protect your skin with a sunscreen recommended by your dermatologist that has at least an SPF of 30 to prevent the sun’s rays from damaging your skin.
- Rejuvenate and regenerate with the right products for your specific skin concerns, such as anti-aging serums or treatment for hyperpigmentation. There is a dizzying array of skin care products available, and we are here to help you determine the best ones for your unique skin and age – more is not always better!
In addition to daily skin care, periodic treatments such as Botox or dermal filler injections, resurfacing treatments, and other treatments available at DSA Dermatology can help renew and refresh your appearance.
