Together, you and Trish will work to maintain your glow for years to come.
The Basics of Skin Care
The first step in building a personalized skin care regimen is to determine your skin type. Trish will work with you to understand your skin and get to know whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or a combination of the two. Once you understand your skin type you are better able to find the right products to use to maintain beautiful skin. It is important to use the appropriate cleanser and moisturizer for your skin type. A good skin care routine also includes the daily use of sunscreen, to help prevent wrinkles and protect against skin cancer.
Healthy skin doesn’t just come from expensive lotions and cleansers at the grocery store. It’s also important to eat a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals. The foods you eat play a big part in keeping your entire body healthy, including your skin.
Schedule Regular Facial Treatments
In addition to the daily regimen of skin care treatments at home, schedule a facial on a regular basis with Trish to keep skin bright and youthful. Facial treatments are a way to slough off dead skin cells and stimulate the exfoliation process. This is an important part of a skin care routine because the skin is a living organ that goes through a regular cycle of about 30 days, where skin cells move up from the dermis to the surface of the skin. There, they become flattened out and die off. Sloughing them off, can help you look less tired and give you a youthful glow.
Regular visits to PENTA Facial Plastic Surgery Center provides another benefit of giving you ample opportunity to review your skin care routine with Trish and adapt it as needed. In addition to reviewing your diet and skin care routine, you can explore other options, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and microneedling. These procedures remove the outer layer of skin, improving skin tone and your overall appearance.
Be intentional about looking younger! It’s not something that will occur without a little work, but the effort is worth the results. Take steps now to have great-looking skin in the future.
