Maintain Beautiful Skin with 4 Simple Tips

injectible treatmentIn recent years, we have seen tremendous growth in the area of aesthetic medicine. If you must age, which you must, there is no better time than now to do so. Dr. Citron offers support, guidance, and direct care with a wealth of experience, enabling you to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

While you can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with injectible solutions such as Botox and soft tissue fillers like Juvederm, and combat other signs of aging with laser treatments and chemical peels, you also want to promote healthy skin on a day to day basis. Fortunately, this can be pretty simple.

4 Tips for Gorgeous Skin

Hydrate

The body is mostly water, which makes water a vital substance for a number of functions. To give your skin the hydration it needs from the inside out, be sure to drink 8 glasses of water a day, equating to about 64 oz.

Cleansing

Clean skin is healthy skin. By the end of the day, your skin has come into contact with innumerable pollutants and potential irritants. Before bed, it is important to clean all makeup, oil, and debris from your skin. Otherwise, the blocked surface cannot breathe freely as you sleep, a vital aspect of rejuvenation. If dirt and bacteria clog pores, dermal fillers may degrade more quickly, and you are increasing your risk of a nasty breakout.

Moisturizing

In addition to nourishing your skin from the inside out, it is necessary to quench its thirst with a good moisturizer, as well. Because sun protection is needed during daytime hours, it is recommended that a moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher be applied in the morning. After washing your face at night, you may apply a moisturizer formulated to address specific concerns such as dryness or loss of elasticity.

Exfoliate

Exfoliation is right up there with cleansing and moisturizing your face each day. The purpose of exfoliation is to encourage the turnover of skin cells. As we grow older, the body naturally holds on to cells on the epidermis, even if they are damaged or dead. This creates ruddiness and rough texture. Dr. Citron can discuss methods of exfoliation that are well-suited to your current needs. Some people may achieve excellent results by instituting the use of a gentle exfoliating product such as Retin-A, while others may need a jump start with microdermabrasion or a chemical peel.
