How many times have you set a skin related goal as your new year’s resolution only to give up after feeling like you aren’t getting anywhere?! Finding the skincare routine to meet your skin’s needs can be tricky sometimes but it is more than obtainable with Sleekskin® Aesthetics on your side! Whether your intention is to finally rid yourself of chronic breakouts or stubbornly dry skin, 2023 is the year that you finally achieve your much desired skin complexion, but how?
Step One: Identify your skin triggers
Finding out what is causing your skin to react in a less than ideal way is one of the first ways we can work together to treat your skin. Things that trigger our skin to misbehave can include:
- Certain skincare products or ingredients
- Foods in our diet
- Stressors in our environment
…Just to name a few.
Step Two: Determine what products your skin is craving
Next comes determining the best way to treat and protect your skin. Properly pairing your skin with the compatible products it needs is imperative to having radiant skin. Not all skincare products are created equal and not all skin reacts the same way to the same products.
In fact, sometimes the product that we’re resorting to can actually be causing more harm than good. A great example of this would be someone struggling with acne who continues to use harsh, drying cleansers without any relief, when it is actually their skin barrier that needs to be addressed rather than their oil production. In this instance, I would recommend incorporating the Sleekskin® Arnica Barrier Serum to help reinforce the skin’s natural barrier.
Step Three: Establish a good in-office skincare regimen
Just like you take your car or even body in for regular maintenance, your face has similar needs. Routine facials are a great way to keep your skin complexion in tip top shape. It also gives your esthetician the opportunity to address:
- Excessive drying
- Redness and irritation
- A dull complexion
Before then they worsen and become more stubborn to deal with, make a goal to get in for a facial every four weeks or so for the best results!
Step Four: Establish a good at-home skincare routine
Maintaining your skin in between facials is, of course, the goal, so using products to preserve your post-facial glow and nourish the skin in between visits is equally as important. A good rule of thumb is to protect your skin in the daytime, treat it in the evening and cleanse and moisturize it always. The Sleekskin® Sunny Citrus Cleanser and the Sleekskin® Cranberry Quench Moisturizer are my go-to recommendation but that obviously depends on your skin type and needs. In addition, having an SPF for the daytime is a must. For the evening, finding a serum that works with your skin is another must. The Sleekskin Stem Cell Reactivation Serum and Sleekskin Vibrant Eye Serum are two personal favorites of mine . From there, we can work to add in additional products like:
- Gentle exfoliants to address things like dull skin
- Brightening creams to rid your complexion of dark spots
- Calming creams to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress
…Plus so much more!
