Commit to a Daily Skin Regimen
Eating right & working out, there’s no other way to get the body you want…which already helps your skin look healthier and more vibrant. But for targeting problem areas and upping that glow, a daily skin care regimen is your best bet.
A daily regimen is simply the best thing for your skin. One way to think about it is in terms of weight loss, a healthy lipid profile and physical tone: you could get surgery or do a drastic diet and see instant, remarkable results. But remission is common; many people who go through extreme weight loss gain it back. Whether or not you undergo a radical procedure, you need a lifestyle change of improved nutrition and daily exercise if you want to keep the weight off and stay healthier, longer.
This daily care over more drastic procedures works for your skin, too. Dermatological procedures and a monthly facial definitely give your skin a boost — and can even clear severe or stubborn concerns dramatically. But, problems frequently recur without a real change in skin habits. There is no replacement for a daily skin regimen to a) keep skin healthy; b) help you achieve your skin goals; and c) sustain the results over a longer period of time.
What’s in a basic regimen? Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer, Sunscreen. There are loads of options to address your skin’s needs and your skin goals. Overwhelmed? Start with the minimum requirement of safety: look for products that are hypoallergenic to reduce the risk of a rash or irritation (which a lot of people don’t know can lead to excessive dryness and even dark splotches) and non-comedogenic (to prevent acne).
