Ready for a Reset! – Aging & Needing Renewal Your skin just doesn’t feel as youthful as it once did. You might be starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles developing and a loss of plumpness or glow. Unfortunately, our skin is at the mercy of many forces as we age: sun, harsh weather, and bad habits. But we can take steps to help our skin stay supple and fresh-looking. Here are a few basic tips to reduce signs of aging: 1. Make a broad-spectrum sunscreen your new BFF. 2. Apply a corrective facial moisturizer twice a day. 3. Invest in preventative treatments, such as Botox or Xeomin. Aging is a fact of life, but looking your age doesn’t have to be. Oily & Acne Prone You might be in a toxin relationship with break outs. Shine is a beautiful thing on your hair, lips, and nails — that’s for certain. Shine on your face, however, can get tricky. There’s a difference between having a gleaming, strategically placed highlight emphasizing your cheekbones and having a greasy slickness coating every inch of your T-zone. And if you have excess oil, chances are you are over-producing oil. Here are a few basic tips to reduce oil and break outs: 1. Wash your face at least twice a day — preferably with a medicated acne cleanser with ingredients such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid, beta-hydroxy acid, or benzoyl peroxide. 2. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. 3. Wear clean makeup, such as mineral-based products. Easily Irritated Your skin is easily irritated skin, especially when you interact with new products or environments. If you have sensitive skin, your complexion may need a little extra pampering. It is suggested to keep your skincare routine to a few calming basics. For example, a gentle facial cleanser, a hydrating moisturizer, and a calming face mask. Fewer products and fewer ingredients means fewer chances to react to something in your skincare routine. Desperate Need of Hydration – Dry & Dull Ah, dry skin… If this is your skin-type, then you may very well have a love-hate relationship with your complexion. After all, dry skin can sometimes feel uncomfortable, tight, and dull-looking. And believe it or not, it takes more than just a good moisturizer to take care of dry skin. Here are a few basic tips to help put some hydration & glow back in your skin: 1. Exfoliate 1-2 times weekly. 2. Apply moisturizer to damp skin. 3. Make hydrating face masks a part of your weekly routine. 4. Invest in a dehumidifier. On the Fence – Combination Skin Tone Surprise, surprise. This is a combination of dry and oily skin. You most likely have an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and your cheeks tend to be more dry. When it comes to having combination skin, it can be tricky to figure out how to care for your skin properly, since different parts of your face have different needs. Needless to say, having combo skin can be quite a balancing act. Having a good balancing toner to use after you cleanser should be a key part of your routine. Another tip is to mix and match your moisturizers, or find one that can multitasks for you. Glow Getter – Needing Improvement with Uneven Skin Tone Having an uneven skin tone and texture can be very frustrating, but it’s certainly not the end of the world. For discoloration, it is important to use a broad-spectrum SPF daily to prevent and protect. On the other hand, uneven skin texture is a lot harder to mask and can be even trickier to treat. Your first mission? To pinpoint the cause of a bumpy complexion and then find your plan of action. Genetics, age, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and an inappropriate skincare routine and/or product usage are the biggest culprits. To correct discoloration and uneven texture, medical grade skincare or treatments are highly recommended. A Balanced Base – Normal Skin Type Most skincare advice revolves around attempting to fix, minimize, or control whatever skin type or skin concern you’re struggling with. But what if you’re one of those lucky people who have truly normal skin, meaning no apparent skin concerns or problematic skin type to address? This means your skin isn’t particularly oily or dry, and if anti-aging, acne, and sensitivity aren’t concerns on your radar, then you have what we consider to be “balanced skin.” Having normal skin doesn’t mean you don’t or won’t have skin care concerns that you can get ahead of now with a great daily skin care routine. In essence, taking care of normal skin requires addressing and getting in front of the skin problems you don’t currently have on your face. What is your age range? What would you describe your overall skin type as? What would you say is the most important concern you want your skincare to address? Which of the following best describes your pores? When does your skin look red? Which of the following would best describe the shine of your skin? How would you describe the texture of your skin? In the afternoon, your skin most likely needs: Pick the one that best describes your skin’s break out patterns. Are you currently using an antioxidant? How does your skin feel after washing your face? Would you be interested in a serum designed specifically for you? How many skincare products do you wish to have in your routine? How often do you get cosmetic procedures, such as facials, chemical peels, and lasers, done?
