As they say, prevention is always better than cure. There may already be a lot of treatments that can address your skin concerns, but it is always better to know how to take good care of your skin initially. Here are some tips to get you going:

Tip #1: Know your face

Determine what type of skin you have, may it be oily or dry. This can be the basis for the skin care products you have to choose from later on. It also helps to pay attention to your face’s fragile areas, such as the lips and the eye contour. They are sensitive and need special treatment.

Tip #2: Gentle cleansing

A sensitive skin needs special care, and it starts with make-up removal. Don’t keep your skin under all that stress! Furthermore, it helps to use a pH-neutral product so as to keep the natural balance of your skin.

Tip #3: Exfoliation works wonders

Find out what exfoliation treatments work well on your skin and exfoliate once or twice every week. The product should be gentle yet effective on your skin. Choose an exfoliating product that is not only pH-neutral, but also effectively purifies and can smoothen the skin.

Tip #4: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

The skin’s dermis is composed of 70% water while the epidermis has 15% of it. This is why it is important to keep the skin hydrated by moisturizing. Your chosen product should be at level with the water of the skin. A moisturizing mask also improves the skin when put on regularly.

Tip #5: Sun protection is important

Choose daily skincare products that contain solar filters, whatever the season may be. Sun exposure accelerates the aging of the skin and sun protection products reduce the unwanted effects of the sun.

But when skin care just does not work on your skin, you may already need laser skin resurfacing or another treatment that can give you smoother and healthier-looking skin. Contact our team of skin care experts today at (617) 964-1440 and be a step closer to having skin that glows and radiates.
