As we know, our skin can be our best friend or our worst enemy. However, this relationship between our skin and us can be simple. In fact, the simpler our regimen, the better! The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland offer some basic skin-care steps that can keep the harmony between us and our skin:
Use the Right Ingredients To Cleanse:
Too many women, no matter how much it is told to us, do not wash their face on a regular basis. Especially at night before turning in. No matter how tired you may be, Dr. Basner and his staff can't stress it enough how imperative is is to wash the debris and dirt that you get during the day. This stuff will clog your pores and lead dead-skin buildup, which dulls your skin. Removing dirt, makeup and everyday pollution is a must for healthy skin.
What Wash To Use:
It can be easy to go over board in this area. Remember to keep it mild. Most skin types only need a gentle cleanser to do the job. For those who are prone to acne, a cleanser with ingredients such as buffered glycolic or lactic acid will exfoliate the skin chemically but with no irritation.
It doesn't matter how old you are or what your skin color is, daily sun protection is a must. A sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or a moisturizer equal to that consistency are not to be skipped. No matter if the sun is out or it's gray and cloudy, apply this 15 minutes prior to leaving the house.
If you have acne-prone or oily skin, choose a product that is oil-free or a light gel-based lotion. For combination skin, during the day, a light fluid-formula sunscreen works great and you can treat the dry areas in the evenings.
Sunscreens with micronized titanium oxide or zinc oxide are perfect for people that have sensitive skin such as melasam, rosacea, or other issues. These will still offer the physical UV block with out aggravating your skin.
Sunscreens with hydrators like glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E are perfect for dry or mature skin.
Night Time Is Damage Control Time:
Maximize the time your sleeping time to moisturize and fix any problems. There are several options with the most recommended being antioxidants. This is the power needed to restore your skin.
Keeping fine lines and wrinkles away by using products such as retinol. A great vitamin A source that assists with increasing the collagen. For those who can't use retinol, antioxidants products that have coffeeberry, vitamin C, green tea or white tea extract. These antioxidants slow down the speed of aging.
How To Treat Problems:
Treatments that have benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or salicylic acid are the best way to treat blemishes. There are products on the market that perform multiple tasks with a single application, making it easy to do and won't dry your skin out.
