2017 has arrived and in the spirit of the new year it’s a great time to form new habits that will strength your dedication to caring for your skin. Here are 8 steps you can take for better skin this year.
Moisturize After Showering
We all know a warm shower strips skin of oils. Face and body lotions are excellent substitutes. Keep your body lotion right in the shower. Seeing it will remind you to apply it when your skin is damp, within ten minutes of turning off the water. PCA Body Therapy contains 12% lactic acid and is suitable for all skin types and conditions leaving the skin hydrated, smooth and radiant.
Wear Sunscreen Every Day
Doctors have long advised wearing sunscreen daily (at least SPF 30) and reapplying it often. Forming a daily habit of applying sunscreen is your greatest defense in the fight against the aging. You can choose from many PCA sunscreens including one of my favorites Weightless Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45. It’s unique quick-absorbing and light finish makes it ideal for those who dislike the feel of traditional sunscreen products.
Develop a Routine
You've known since middle school that makeup can mix with skin oils and dirt to cause zits. Cosmetics can also trap skin-damaging free radicals that float in the air. Cleansing the day away is so important to your skin care routine, if you don’t do anything else, don’t skip that. Use PCA Facial Wash or Creamy Cleanser to establish this routine. In time, you’ll see the results.
Clean Up After the Gym
Don't let your skin take a hit just because you've discovered an amazing new workout. Wipe your face, back, and chest after class, and change into a clean, dry T-shirt. Back home, hop into the shower as soon as possible.
Book a Yearly Mole Check
Having a dermatologist survey your body once a year is crucial, even if you're diligent about monthly self-exams.
A baby's skin replenishes itself completely every 14 days, but by age 30, an adult takes a full 28 days to replenish. With all that extra time, skin cells have a chance to dry out and lose luster—unless you jump-start the renewal process by exfoliating. Use PCA Gentle Exfoliant weekly to help rejuvenate your skin.
Stick with the Program
Waiting for a new skin treatment to show results can be a test of patience. A good corrective skin care regime including a serum and/or a retinol can take six weeks to give noticeable results, so don't give up. That goes for skin lighteners and acne products, too. So give it a chance to show results before you move on. Schedule your consultation and get started on your personal beauty routine that will set you up for a lifetime of great skin.
Schedule Time for Yourself
That extra step of in-office treatments can make all the difference in the results you see. Working from a thorough consultation and taking into consideration if you are looking for a change in your skin or a healthy maintenance plan. Peels, Masks and Facial appointment recommendations will vary from every 3 to 4 weeks to sometimes seasonally, depending on the end goal. Whatever the suggestion, consistency is what it takes.
