Maintaining Healthy Skin - The Key to Looking Younger
Skin changes a lot over a person’s lifetime. It reflects our age and the stage of life we’re in. Sometimes the health of our skin can make us look older or younger than we truly are. People with healthy skin are often assumed to be younger. This is a great reason to start caring for your skin’s health. A bit of maintenance can go a long way towards keeping your skin beautiful and looking young. Here are five tips for helping you to maintain healthy skin.
Daily Skin Care Routine
Everyone should have a daily routine for their skin. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming, or expensive either. It only takes a few small steps to keep your skin healthy. Here is a quick outline of a daily skincare routine, just to give you an idea of what to try. Remember this is general advice, and you should speak to one of our staff before beginning treatments so that you can have advice more personalised for your skin.
Morning routine: Cleanse, Vitamin C, Eye Cream, Moisturizer, and SPF.
Evening routine: Cleanse, Eye Cream, Vitamin A, Moisturizer/Night Cream.
This will maintain the health of your skin and can prevent future damage. Ultimately it’ll look healthy and younger. If you’re unsure what products to try, you can speak with our skin therapist about which products will suit you best. North Coast Medispa also offers a number of professional treatments that will help the quality of your skin. You can find these treatments in our clinics at Ballina and Lismore. Here are a few of the options available to you.
We offer complimentary Skin Assessments. This is a great opportunity for you to understand the health of your skin, how you can treat your skin concerns, and achieve healthy-looking skin. We always recommend beginning with a free skin assessment before you start any treatments. It’s always best to get professional guidance when trying to achieve your goals. You should also seek out personalised health advice, instead of advice that is general and vague. There’s no substitute for having a skin therapist look directly at your face and give you specific guidance on how to practice good skin-care.
Our Skin Therapists will learn about your skin history. They’ll cleanse your skin and carry out a thorough yet non-invasive inspection. And they’ll outline a treatment plan for helping you achieve your healthy skin goals. For more information, please look at our blog on Skin Assessments.
A facial is perhaps the easiest way to give your skin a clean and fresh glow. They’re also incredibly relaxing at the same time. Facials are the perfect treat for practicing self-care. You can also try a chemical peel. These are slightly different to a facial. A chemical peel uses a chemical exfoliator to remove damaged skin and debris, which helps to stimulate new skin cell growth.
You should aim to have a skin treatment every three to four weeks. That’s how long it takes for each skin cell to be replaced during your skin cycle. Giving your skin a regular deep cleanse to give it a beautiful, youthful glow.
Wrinkles are one of the most prominent signs of aging. But there are ways we can reduce these and keep your skin looking younger and healthy. Anti-wrinkle injections will help to slow the formation of new wrinkles. These injections will relax the facial muscles that contract and cause lines to form when you frown or smile.
Living a Healthy Lifestyle
Your health is important. Living a healthy lifestyle is good for your body and mind. But it’s also good for the health of your skin. A healthy diet will give your skin plenty of nutrients to grow strong. And regular exercise encourages blood flow and helps burn excess fat. Just remember to complete your daily skincare routine as well!
Healthy living is a big part of self-care. The way you treat yourself will impact your health, which in turn impacts your life. So take care of your health because you’re worth taking care. And as an added bonus, taking care of yourself will help keep your skin healthy and smooth.
