The key to radiant, beautiful skin is a healthy beauty routine. And with the holidays less than two months away, now is the time to reassess your skin care regimen. In this blog post, Newport Beach Dr. Rob Kessler shares the top at-home beauty tips and effective skin care treatments he offers for healthy, luminous skin.
What to Do at Home
Wash your makeup off at night. Leaving your makeup on at night leads to dirt and oil buildup, which clogs your pores and in turn causes unsightly blemishes. For your skin’s sake, take that extra step at night to wash off makeup before bed, using warm water and a gentle cleanser. You will be glad you did, come holiday time!
Don’t Skip Sunscreen. Sun care is essential year round, perhaps even more so in areas like Southern California where the sun rarely rests. Sunscreen protects against the sun’s harmful UV rays and drastically reduces your risk of sun damage, which includes dry, dull skin, premature wrinkles and lines, and uneven skin tone. For best protection, apply sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher whenever you step outdoors.
Eat Healthy. Splurging on your favorite sugary/fatty holiday snacks or caffeinated fall drinks can leave an unattractive mark on your skin (i.e., pimples, dryness). To keep your skin looking nourished and radiant, it’s a good idea to stock up on healthy snacks (e.g., carrots, cheese, almonds and grapes). Keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.
How Dr. Kessler Can Help
Need help maintaining beautiful skin or repairing sun-damaged/aged skin? Dr. Kessler offers an array of in-office skin care treatments, including:
Chemical Peels. Exfoliating your skin sloughs away the dead skin cells responsible for your dull complexion, making way for younger and refreshed skin. Chemical peels are exfoliative treatments that vary in strength, making them safe and effective for treating a variety of skin concerns including redness, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, scars, dull skin and acne. Results with chemical peels are temporary; you can maintain your refreshed and rejuvenated appearance with repeat treatments.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally occurring in the body and is responsible for maintaining cells in a healthy environment in our bodies. Unfortunately, as you age, your body’s production of hyaluronic acid drops, contributing to a wrinkled and aged appearance. Hyaluronic acid injections like Juvederm are a great way to supplement your skin’s natural volume and keep your skin looking youthful for as long as possible.
Exilis Ultra. Exilis Ultra is an exciting and innovative non-surgical procedure that simultaneously treats loose skin and wrinkles and unwanted fat deposits. Using a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound energy, Exilis Ultra helps patients achieve firmer, smoother skin and a slimmer figure — all at the same time!
