Beauty tips and tricks, PT. 2

Dry Skin
Go easy if your skin is dry or sensitive. If your skin feels dry, rough and flaky when you touch it, it needs extra tender-loving care with the following routine:

1) Cream off makeup and dirt with a super-fatted cleansing cream, morning and night. Apply all creams and lotions with an upward motion. It’s stimulating to the skin and helps prevent sagging. Note: Vitamin E oil is also known to slow the aging of skin. Dab it on problem areas that show signs of aging. I offer my patients Vitamin C drops, which are a terrific anti-oxidant for the skin.

2) Moisturize in the morning and before bedtime to keep your skin soft and smooth and to protect it against the additional loss of moisture.

3) Take warm, not hot, showers. Lots of hot water can drain moisture out of your skin, leaving it older-looking, itchy and dry. Be sure to use moisturizing lotion after bathing.

Beware Of The Sun

Even on a cold winter’s day, the ultraviolet rays can penetrate your skin and cause premature aging, especially for skiers and outdoor skaters. Be sure to use a sunscreen product to screen out harmful rays when you participate in winter sports. Ultraviolet rays are strongest between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., so be especially careful if you’re in the sun during those hours. Wear sunglasses. Use petroleum jelly on your lips for added protection.

Aloe Vera has an amazing ability to rejuvenate and rebuild the skin by helping the process of cell division and discarding dead cell tissue. Additionally it is excellent as a moisturizer by maintaining the natural moisturizing agents in the skin, even drawing moisture from the air around.

Age Spots

These flat, gray, brown or black spots occur on more than 90 percent of fair-skinned people past the age of 50. Skin formulas containing maximum strength hydroquinone can gently fade darker skin and age spots. Any suspicious-looking moles or spots that have an irregular pattern should be checked by your dermatologist to be sure they’re not cancerous.

Age spots can also be effectively eliminated by treatments such as IPL Photo-facial rejuvenation.

Pimples

Resist the urge to pick at a pimple. Skin that is broken out is already infected with bacteria. Picking breaks down the skin and invites in more bacteria, leading to possible infections or scarring.

Remedies

No amount of money spent at the cosmetics counter or your local pharmacy can replace the treatment and remedies you can get find from a medical esthetician in a plastic surgeon’s office.
