There are some things in life you cannot prevent, a major one is aging. Instead of trying to piece together a cocktail of anti-aging formulas, this blog will share five ways to improve your skin no matter your age.
These are simple to utilize and do not require you to break the bank on beauty products and you best of all you can accomplish at home on your own time.
Moisturize: the weather is treacherous on your skin and with colder months approaching, it is imperative to take care of your skin now. A healthy way to start is to moisturize your skin. A high performing moisturizer locks in moisture and protects your skin from dryness and irritation. A thicker ointment or cream is beneficial for those who have sensitive skin that react strongly to certain products. Keep in mind while shopping for your ideal moisturizer, examine the ingredients and avoid products that contain heavy fragrances since they are usually alcohol based and will dry out your skin.
Beneficial ingredients to look for are Dimethicone, Glycerin, Mineral oil, or Hyaluronic acid because they promote and preserve moisture in the skin. At Focus Aesthetics we carry top moisturizers that you could make a part of your at-home skin regimen to help protect your skin and ward off signs of aging. Make sure to schedule a visit with one of our experts for guidance on the best products for your skin.
Shorter Bathing/Showers: While everyone loves to relax in the bath with bubbles and candles, water strips the skin of its natural oils. These oils maintain moisture in the skin and prevent dryness and wrinkles. If you are not big on baths but prefer long showers, know that taking a shorter shower is better for your skin. But who wants to limit their baths or showers? No one! That is why it is vital that you moisturize your skin immediately after stepping out of the shower, perhaps even prior to drying off completely and locking in the moisture you did leave on the skin.
Use Natural stimulants: a fantastic way to protect and preserve your skin is using natural stimulants that could aid your body to produce its own collagen. We personally love recommending the use of Sculptra paired with serums to activate the body’s collagen production. Sculptra is a dermal filler that is non-surgical, FDA-approved, and replaces lost collagen. Serums on the other hand, used with your regimens to help support your skincare protocol provided by your specialist.
Sculptra works with your skin to add volume and eradicate wrinkles. This is helpful when you have nasolabial folds, known as laugh lines, and want to create a smooth surface around your mouth and nose.
Similar to laser hair removal, the effects are long lasting, which will preserve and restore your skin. With state -of- the- art equipment and a board certified team, Focus Aesthetics is prepared to bring your face back to life.
Serums and Sculptra go together like peanut butter and jelly. Using medical grade serums will help you make the most out of your session. Serums will revitalize and maintain your new skin. This combination is the dynamic duo of body contouring.
Humidify: With winter approaching, everyone is running indoors for warmth. However, skin dries out from the air in your home. With the heater running, moisture in the air dries. The solution is a humidifier. According to Gary Goldenberg, “artificial heat makes indoor air extremely dry, and seasonally frigid temps make the outdoor air really dry“. Air hydration levels increase by forcing moisture into the environment. By utilizing a humidifier during the winter months, the air is controlled in your home and moisture is brought back to the air.
Winter is harsh and unforgiving on your skin. When the seasons change, your skincare regimen must change so you can protect yourself. With these simple tips at your fingertips, you are well on your way to maintaining healthy skin. From injectable fillers, facials, to chemical peels, Focus Aesthetics works with all.
