The glowing skin you’ve been dreaming of is achievable by simply changing a few habits in your routine. Follow these healthy habits to create results that not only you, but everyone, will notice.
1. CONSULT WITH AN ESTHETICIAN
There’s no better first step than seeking the help of a professional. The Medical Aestheticians at the Medical Spa at PRO Medical are driven by innovation and science. Even in one visit, an aesthetician can diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of your skin, prescribe the steps to best address your particular challenges, and recommend the right kind of product and routine that suits your personal needs.
As the largest organ in your body, the skin is probably the thirstiest. One sign of dry skin is not drinking enough water. A good rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces everyday (for example, if you weigh 140 pounds, drink 70 ounces of water daily).
Like any other organ in your body, your skin needs rest in order to recharge its batteries. Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep each night.
4. GET A SKIN PEEL
Dead skin cells build up on your face over time creating a dull, lifeless appearance. Regular skin peels remove this outer buildup, exposing the fresh, healthy skin hiding underneath.
5. TAKE YOUR VITAMINS
Vitamins deficiencies are a common culprit of skin problems. A blood draw will uncover the vitamins you may be lacking and the supplements you require.
6. ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT HOME CARE ROUTINE
Too often, people switch products before they really give them a chance to start working. We suggest sticking to a few good products, and letting them do their thing.
Skipping daily cleansing or moisturizing stresses your skin, leading to breakouts, lines, and wrinkles. Essentials include a cleanser, toner, treatment cream or serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and sunscreen. It may sound like a lot, but it takes just a few minutes each day. And the results are long- lasting.
7. USE PROFESSIONAL GRADE PRODUCTS
Most over-the-counter products contain chemicals, fillers, or just a negligible amount of the “beneficial active ingredient,” that they have a benign effect on the skin. Professional products, chosen specifically for your skin by an aesthetician, will give you the greatest return.
8. REDUCE STRESS
Take time out for yourself with a bath, a massage, or a facial treatment especially chosen for your skin’s unique needs.
Exercising releases toxins, increases circulation, and oxygenates the skin.
10. EAT RIGHT
High fiber fruits, veggies, and whole grains will make your skin very, very happy. Berries, high in antioxidants, and vitamin K will strengthen the capillary walls and give your skin a nice even tone.
