Having great skin is partly genetics and partly due to your daily skincare routine. The vast number of skincare products and conflicting opinions on skincare could leave you confused, however, as to which products and habits are beneficial.
Ultimately, your skincare routine should be tailor-fit to the skin concerns you want to address. If you need help building an effective routine based on your personal needs, consult with our dermatologist, Dr. Alex Eshaghian, here at A E Skin Professional Med Spa in Encino, CA. Meanwhile, here are skincare basics to keep in mind.
Three Essential Skincare Steps
The three skincare essentials include cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your skin. Cleansing gets rid of all the gunk that has built up on your face throughout the day, toning helps balance your skin, and moisturizing softens and hydrates your face.
The primary objective of any skincare regimen is to fine-tune the complexion so that it can function at its best and help you target or troubleshoot specific skin concerns such as wrinkles, acne, or pigmentation. Your skincare regimen is an excellent opportunity to see changes in your skin since you will need new products and/or habits as you age.
Give Your Skincare Products Adequate Time to Work
While skincare products these days have come a long way, there’s still no magic product that will work overnight to fix your skin concerns. This means that you will only see results and reap the benefits of a product with consistent use. In general, give a product a minimum of six weeks to see whether or not it will work for you.
That being said, if you are not getting the results you want from your skincare routine, it’s best to consult your dermatologist here at our Med Spa in Encino, CA, for professional advice.
Be Extra Diligent with Sun Protection
Any skincare expert will tell you that putting on sunscreen daily is among the most vital things you can do for your skin. You still need to apply sunscreen on your face and other exposed areas of your body when it’s cloudy outside or if you’ll be indirectly exposed to the sun from your office window.
Consistent and daily applications of sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 30, helps in preventing wrinkles and fine lines from developing. Most importantly, regular sunscreen use could help significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.
