2023 has arrived, and healthy skin is in! Commit to these New Year’s resolutions your skin will thank you for and achieve your best skin ever. 🙌
“Promise to have your skin check this year.”
Yes, you should. Don’t put it off because skin cancer is most easily treated when caught early. Come in for a baseline if you have never had one, or come in for your annual if you are not new to the process! Let us teach you what to look for and limit your risks. Skin cancer is one of the few things you can pick up on without an internal test or scan- knowing how is key and having someone help you monitor is so important! There’s no reason to delay when it is one of the easiest and most proactive health steps to take. 2023 is your year to start good habits; come in for your skin check!
“Finally start your skin regimen!”
Dabbling in routines? Can’t stick to one regimen because it’s too hard to commit? Too many options and too much advice from friends and the media? Come in to formalize your skincare regimen and customize it to YOU. Rome was not built in a day, and neither is your skincare. It should be an evolution, and you must start with fundamentals and grow it from there. Let us help you design your best 2023 regimen & start now- the sooner you start (no matter what your age), the more benefits you will see! 😍
Our skin loves consistency. It might be tempting to switch up your products regularly, but getting into the groove with a simple routine that works is worth its weight in gold. Cleanse and moisturize twice daily. Extra products can be introduced one at a time, depending on your skin’s specific needs.
“Don’t give up on retinoids.”
We all know that retinoids are powerhouse active ingredients and fight the first signs of aging, acne and hyperpigmentation. But it’s easy to stop using them because they can cause irritation and redness. The key is using a very thin layer, using a moisturizer with them, and starting very slowly. Two nights per week is a good place to start.
“Simplify your skincare routine.”
The most effective skincare routine is a simple one with well-thought-out active ingredients. All too often I see people in the clinic who are over-masking and over-peeling in the pursuit of glowing skin. Too many active ingredients, such as hydroxy acids and retinol, at different steps in your routine, can disrupt the skin barrier, worsen redness and increase sensitivities.
“Get a new brimmed hat that you will actually wear!”
Be fashionable while lowering your risk of skin cancer AND wrinkles by getting yourself a new hat to wear this year! A favorite for men is Tilley, and the options for women are vast 👒
