The 5 Worst Things You’re Doing To Your Skin

FYBC 9:7.jpgWhen it comes to your complexion, seeing a dermatologist isn’t the most important thing. What matters most is how you treat your skin every day. Whether you pride yourself in taking careful care of your skin or hardly touch your face, there are common missteps that can seriously mess with your complexion.  By stopping these 5 mistakes, you will be that much closer to healthier, younger looking skin.

Forgetting to wear sunscreen every day, including during winter: 

Although UV rays are much stronger during the summer, they are present and active all year-long. UV won’t turn your skin red but they can cause wrinkling, age spots, and even cancer. Don’t forget that UV rays can penetrate the clouds and glass, so protect yourself with SPF all year round.

 

Taking long, hot showers:

Long, hot showers are a sure-fire way to turn your skin flaky and dry! Hot water strips the oil and moisture from your skin, leaving it itchy. So, if you already have dry skin, the worst thing you can do is take more hot showers. A great rule of thumb; if your mirror steams up, your water is too hot. Turn down the temperature and get out before your skin prunes. After showering, apply lotion!

 

Not getting enough sleep:

Aside from under eye circles, sleeping too little doesn’t allow your skin to repair itself. Nighttime is an important time for your skin as it works to create, mend and shed skin cells. For healthier looking skin, you should get at least 7 hours of sleep a night.

Going to sleep without washing your face:

Although you should be washing your face twice a day (when you wake up and before you go to be), as long as you wash before bed, all is well. Sleeping with impurities, makeup and built up oil will not only disrupt your cell turnover causing your skin to look dull but it will clog your pores and cause black heads.

Attempting to scrub acne away:
Acne is a hormonal issue, not a hygiene problem. That being said, excessively cleaning your skin with soap and other exfoliants will only hurt you not help. Over-cleansing will inhibit medications or other products from clearing your condition. Instead of scrubbing, wash your face gently with a cleanser that contains salicylic acid.

  • Microdermabrasion is not suggested for those that are suffering from eczema, dermatitis, active sunburns, lupus, herpes, weak capillaries, widespread acne, and rosacea. It is a great idea to consult with a healthcare professional before receiving a microdermabrasion treatment.
  • Microdermabrasion is a popular choice over chemicals peels and laser treatments simply because they are more affordable and safer!
  • One of the great things about microdermabrasion is that it increases blood flow, offering greater nutrition to your skin cells. This increases to cell production have a positive effect skin’s elasticity.
  • Diminished fine line, wrinkles, and acne scars are results of microdermabrasion. However, results vary based on the individual.

fybc 22.jpg

Start the 2017 school year off with a new look!  Break away from your norm and make a change. If you are looking for something subtle yet substantial, lash extensions are perfect for you. Not only do they offer low maintenance beauty but they are natural looking and easy to keep up with. Shake up your beauty routine with longer, more full lashes! If you have never had lash extensions, we are here to let you in on the most important tip to keep your lashes looking amazing for longer. The only thing you must commit when getting lash extensions are the fluff appointments. Although your extensions will last you a while, every now and again your natural lashes will shed. Don’t worry; this is both normal and expected. In order to keep your lash extensions looking full, a fluff appointment is necessary. A “fluff” ensures there are no gaps or inconsistencies amongst the lash extensions. The “fluff” is similar to getting your acrylic nails rebased.  Today is a great time to make an appointment with us. Give us a call or book online today.
