Are you taking proper care of your skin? Don’t worry, I’m not going to inundate you with a laundry list of medical spa treatments you need—though aesthetic medicine is my specialty! Belle Marin is home to a state-of-the-art selection of skin rejuvenation treatments, from Vampire Facials® to Halo™ laser skin renewal, all of which can dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin, taking years off your complexion.
Treatments aside, here are the 3 cardinal “skin sins” to avoid if you want to maintain a luminous, youthful complexion:
1. Pulling an all-nighter or going to bed too late every night.
When you deprive yourself of your beauty sleep, you are depriving your skin of a much-needed respite. While you sleep, your skin cells are busy working to repair the damage done from a day of stress and pollution. Save face (literally) by getting at least 8 hours of sleep. And don’t forget to apply a medical-grade serum before bed. Results-driven ingredients like retinoids and vitamin C do their best work while you sleep.
2. Lack of SPF Protection
This is a year-round, 365 day MUST for achieving gorgeous skin. The sun is your skin’s worst enemy. There are no positives to exposing your skin to the sun, so don’t listen to the people who insist you need “exposure” for the ”D.” You don’t. You can get Vitamin D from many other skin-healthy sources like milk, cheese, and vitamins.
3. Over-applying makeup.
Spending most of your time trying to cover up your complexion is a red flag that your skin care regimen needs an overhaul. If redness is an issue, the BBL™ photofacial is a non-invasive light treatment that can dramatically improve redness and other signs of uneven pigmentation. Microneedling or Halo™ are other tried-and-true skin revitalizers. No matter what your budget is, we can help steer you in the right direction with medical grade skin care products, expert advice, or treatments which renew your skin from the inside to reveal a healthy glow.
