2020 is quickly approaching, and gearing up for the New Year can be equally exciting and overwhelming. While we contemplate New Year’s Resolutions like reading more, eating healthier, and exercising more often, we should also consider parts of our daily routines that we may overlook: our skincare routine. Start 2020 off by recommitting to your skin health.
If you don’t already have a daily routine, then it’s time to develop one. As we age, even if you’re only in your early 20’s, you can develop brown freckles and irregular skin texture your skin will become more lax, you will take the pressure of environmental factors, and, frankly, start to show wrinkles. Start 2020 off right by developing a skincare routine that will help you reach your aesthetic goals and prioritize your skin health. Loving your skin for years to come starts today.
Why you need a skincare routine
Your skincare routine is your first-line defense against showing your age. Getting older is a privilege, but staving off fine lines and wrinkles, brightening skin tone, and generally loving your skin is a pretty universal goal. Developing a skincare routine is the best way to protect your skin and prevent damage from harmful UV rays, environmental factors, and the natural aging process.
When should I start a skincare routine?
You should really start a preventative skincare routine when you’re in your early 20s, but it’s never too late to start. As you age, your skincare needs will change, so adjusting your routine is necessary. However, committing to protecting your skin as early as possible is the best treatment plan. Make 2020 the year you commit to your skin health!
Developing a skincare routine
Talking to your aesthetician (preferably at your board-certified dermatologist’s office) about developing a skincare routine is the best way to develop a routine that will benefit your skin health and optimize the benefits of your products. There are so many products and brands to choose from, and having a clinical aesthetician to help guide your choices will give you the best chance at developing a truly successful routine the first time.
When you develop a skincare routine, you should consider your goals and the state of your skin with scrutiny. The best treatment is prevention, and the best way to prevent premature aging and protect your skin is to use products before you need them. If you have existing skin concerns, make sure you talk to our aesthetician at Aesthetic & Dermatology Center about the best products, the right ingredients, and the optimal routine to address your concerns and prevent new ones.
This one can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start. Of course, you should always include a sunscreen in your daily routine. But, trying to navigate ingredients lists is a tedious task if you don’t know what you need. Between retinoids, serums, various acids, ceramides, antioxidants, and peptides, it can start to feel like a gamble when choosing the right products for your skin. Talk to your aesthetician at Aesthetic & Dermatology Center which products are best for your skin type.
Choosing skincare products is an investment. You don’t want to invest in products that aren’t right for you, and you don’t want to invest in products that are actually harmful. Talking with your aesthetician about the right products for your skin can save you time, money, and headache. Don’t waste any time making 2020 all about your skin health. You can enhance your own natural beauty and truly love your skin with the right products.
Staying on track
Committing to a skincare routine is the best way to make it really work for you. Taking care of your skin requires consistent care and management, and while it’s important to commit to a daily routine, you need to make sure it is enough to help you reach your goals. Your aesthetician may recommend supplemental treatments to achieve your skincare goals, and periodically checking in with your aesthetician about your progress will help ensure you are using the right products and that they are working well with and for your skin.
Supplementing your routine
There are treatments that you can have to supplement your routine and maximize its benefits; in fact, your aesthetician may highly recommend supplemental treatments. Talk to Chelsea about the best treatments for your skin so that you can reach all of your cosmetic goals.
