Great skin doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are 5 quick tips to help you achieve the healthiest skin possible.

 

1)  Cleanse!

 

Don’t let a day go by without cleansing your skin. It doesn’t need to be complicated and it won’t take much time, but it’s a big part of having healthy skin. If you don’t cleanse at night before bed, you are leaving behind makeup and dirt particles from the day that can become trapped under dead skin cells. The result will be dull, tired looking skin and possibly blemishes.

 

2)  Use sunscreen every day.

 

You have heard it preached over and over and that’s because it’s so important. Sunscreen is a must every day, not just on sunny days. If you aren’t sure how much protection you need, check out our recent blog: Busted! Top 10 Skincare Myths Debunked.   

 

3)  Retinols can work miracles.

 

Retinols are Vitamin A derivatives that stimulate cell turnover, boost collagen production, even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Each of these little miracles helps to keep the skin looking as fresh and youthful as possible. Remember to use them only at night as they can make your skin sensitive to sunlight.

 

4)  Your skin care regimen doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, it can be only 3 steps:

 

a.  Cleanser – The key to healthy skin is clean skin.

 

b.  Moisturizer- Be sure to choose one specific for your skin type and age. Ask your esthetician or your dermatologist for help if you need it. Most reputable spas offer complimentary skin care and product consultations.

 

c.  Serum- The most popular and arguably the most effective anti-aging serums contain Vitamin C. Not only will Vitamin C reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but it will work to protect the skin from free radicals caused by environmental dangers such as UVA and UVB rays.

 

5)  Skin care involves more than just your face.

 

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, regular exfoliation all over your body will help eliminate buildup that can become cancerous.
