We say it all the time: The best foundation you can wear is healthy, naturally glowing skin. All of us want to achieve our softest, clearest, most evenly toned complexion. The question is, what steps do you need to take to get there?
As your trusted skin care experts, we’ve put together a few tips to help you take exceptional care of your skin this spring and beyond:
#1: Sunscreen, always.
You can’t have beautiful skin if you’re leaving it unprotected. The best way to protect your skin from harmful UV radiation and other environmental elements is to use sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Specifically, a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 will do the trick. We recommend investing in a medical-grade formula that affords optimal protection against UVA and UVB rays. On our online shop, you’ll find a wide range of top-tier sunscreen options from Colorescience®, EltaMD®, Revision® Skincare and SkinMedica® to choose from. Once you’ve found your go-to sun care product, make sure to apply and reapply to all areas of exposed skin throughout the day for optimal sun-shielding protection. And if you’re outside in the heat playing sports, swimming or sweating, use sunscreens that are water resistant.
#2: Cleanse & hydrate daily.
A major skin care mistake to avoid is not washing your face every day. Think of all you do in a day and all the buildup of dirt, oil and makeup that accumulates on your skin. You’ll want to wash that away at least once if not twice a day with a gentle cleanser of your choice. Clearing away daily grime can help prevent acne breakouts and large pores while keeping the skin looking fresh and healthy. Another mistake we so often make is not drinking enough water throughout the day. Staying hydrated helps maintain your skin’s elasticity and moisture levels which can reduce signs of premature aging, including wrinkles and fine lines.
#3: Schedule a skin refresh in your free time.
If you want to fast-track this whole skin-revitalizing process, aesthetic skin treatments can provide immediate benefits to the tone and texture of your skin without downtime. Our professional facial treatments use a combination of advanced cleansing technologies and nutrient-rich serums to deliver the results you’re looking for, including brighter skin, smoother texture, smaller pores, reduced blemishes and softer lines and wrinkles. So, the next time you’ve got an afternoon free, come on in for a refreshing clinical facial, or take your skin to the next level with the award-winning HydraFacial MD® Elite. Your skin will thank you for it!
