With the New Year rapidly approaching, you probably already have New Year’s resolutions on the mind. If your goals in 2020 include improving your health or changing your appearance, then your skin care may be a top focus. However, you might feel stuck with your skin care routine and unsure how to make big changes. Simply switching your facial cleanser or adding a new moisturizer to your routine isn’t likely to yield dramatic changes. With help from Dr. Kay and the team at Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, you can see a huge improvement in your skin health and appearance. Keep reading for a look at how to plan your skin care goals as you kick off the New Year.

Customize Your Skin Care

While you might have a vague idea of your skin care needs, such as acne control or anti-aging, you may not really know exactly which products and treatments will work for your skin and why. Your skin is a complex organism, and there are many factors that contribute to its appearance, health, and nutritional needs. Therefore, you should treat your skin to a customized skin care consultation to assess your skin type and provide you with insight on specific skincare goals.

At Perfection, we offer complimentary skincare consultations to help build a road map for our clients’ future skin care. We can help you set specific, achievable goals with the right products and services for your needs. Not only will this allow you to truly customize your skin care routine, but it can help you stop wasting money on products you don’t really need

Splurge on the Right Products

Chances are, you have a variety of store-bought skin care products in your bathroom drawers and cabinets. Furthermore, many of these products probably do not live up to the hype promised on the label. By choosing medical grade products that are recommended in your skincare consultation, you can finally streamline your routine without compromising any benefits. In fact, you’ll probably see a dramatic difference in how your skin looks and feels once you start using the right products. Especially if you are investing in non-surgical skincare treatments, you should splurge on higher quality products to care for your skin at home and keep it looking great.

Supplement Skin Care with Good Lifestyle Habits

The appearance of your skin depends not only on the products you use to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin, but also on your lifestyle. For example, if you smoke, you are putting yourself at risk for increased oxidative damage in the skin, broken blood vessels, dryness, and early onset of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Your diet also plays a critical role in the appearance of your skin. Thus, part of your skin care goals should be a plan for healthier living.

Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables each day is a good start. Whole, fresh foods will have more of the nutrients your skin needs to stand up to various types of damage and maintain a beautiful glow. Hydration is another key. In Tucson, where we’re known for a hot, dry climate, you should always drink plenty of water each day. In addition to improving your overall health, this can help you fend of dryness and skin irritation. Finally, you should always wear sunscreen to protect your skin outdoors. That means applying sunscreen daily, not just when you plan to spend time by the pool or take a nature walk in the desert. Sunscreen is yet another aspect of your skincare routine that can be customized with medical grade products for even stronger protection.
