We wouldn’t go so far as to say that most people don’t think about their skin. What we can say is that the action steps to the great skin are relatively elusive to a large percentage of the population. If you are already a patient of Park Avenue Skin & Spa, we trust that you have a strong interest in keeping your skin healthy and vital. But do you know exactly what that looks like on a day-to-day basis? It may be much simpler than you think.
Three Key Ways to Maximize Your Skin
Yes, there is value in professional treatments, and our New York City office serves individual needs with everything from injectables to laser treatments and more. The steps that you can take in between your visits with our friendly team include:
- Live as well as you can. This means that you eat well, feeding the cells of your body with phytonutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables. The cellular fuel found in fresh foods is far superior to any food found in a bag. Living well also means drinking plenty of water to facilitate the filtration of toxins from the body. Finally, rest is vital to cellular activity and, thus, to fresh skin.
- Remember protection. Here’s the thing about sunscreen use: it is so easy to forget the need for UV protection when the temperatures drop to freezing, which they may do in just a few months. UV light is stronger at certain times, but that does not mean exposure during less intense moments is any less damaging. If you want to preserve vitality, radiance, and dermatologic health, use sunscreen every single day.
- Choose the right products. Here’s where it is so easy to go wrong. Understand one thing: cosmetic skincare products are not the same caliber as medical grade products, regardless of cost. Medical grade skincare penetrates the uppermost cellular makeup to nourish deeper tissues and cells, where collagen is produced. Next, understand that the biofilm of dead skin cells that sits on the surface will negate the efficacy of any skincare product. Finally, maximize your daily regimen by choosing products with ingredients such as vitamin C, retinoids, antioxidants, or glycolic acid, or a combination thereof.
