Reveal your Softer Side

 Cosmetic Dermatology West Orange, NJ Most of the time, when we discuss the cosmetic concerns that arise as we age, it is lines and wrinkles that get the bad rap. We’re not advocating for them, but we are saying there are other characteristics that can make your skin appear older. Not only that, it may be made to feel older if you’re not careful. If you’d like to restore that baby-softness to your skin, it’s possible; and, it isn’t difficult at all. We’ll tell you how it can be done.

  1. Clean the slate. Every piece of art is best commenced on a clean slate. This may apply to the skin even more than you imagine. The topical creams and moisturizers that you apply to your skin cannot do their job if they are not able to permeate the surface. Well, that surfaced is blanketed with debris such as oil, dirt, and damaged or dead cells. To clean the slate, all you need is a good exfoliating treatment. Depending on how much you want to accomplish, you may choose a light chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or even laser skin resurfacing.
  2. Once your skin care products are getting absorbed, they can do their magic. One of the best ways to support softness is to moisturize regularly. Professional grade products made with peptides and nourishing ingredients are ideal for long-term dermatologic health. Also, remember that your moisturizer, in particular, will need to change throughout the year to best meet your needs.
  3. Skin care means sun care. Broad spectrum sunscreen filters or blocks the largest amount of harmful UV rays. Daily application minimizes UV exposure, which protects the delicate strands of collagen that firm and moistens the skin. Like a daily moisturizer, sunscreen may also need to change with the seasons.
