A lot of patients want to know the “secret” to beautiful, radiant skin. The truth is, there is no magic elixir that creates the perfect complexion, but daily maintenance and regular skin facials and treatments can drastically enhance the appearance and feel of your skin. Here are my top 3 tips for good skin care in Calgary:
1. Good Skin Care Products
You skin is a delicate organ that requires more than just daily soap and water. Your skin cells need daily moisture and regular exfoliation to keep your skin soft, healthy, and clear of acne and blackheads. Beyond moisturizing your skin, many skin care products feed your skin with vital nutrients and encourage your skin’s natural regeneration processes. Having the right products can mean the difference between dull, irregular, and damaged skin and glowing, soft skin.
2. Regular Facials and/or Medical Spa Treatments
Sometimes your skin needs professional help. Regular facials help hydrate skin and clear away dirt, dead skin and oil. Other medical spa treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion can kick start your skin’s restorative processes to achieve the complexion you want. When performed by skilled aestheticians, these procedures can enhance the results you achieve through daily maintenance.
3. A Healthy Lifestyle
Like good skin care habits, living a healthy lifestyle can do wonders for your complexion. Drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet make you feel healthy but also provide your body with the nutrients it needs to produce vigorous and well-nourished cells. If your body isn’t getting the nutrients and proteins it needs, then it shows in your skin. Beyond diet, regularly exercising improves your circulation, which can activate the restorative processes in your skin that help clear away toxins and produce healthy skin cells.
