We’re glowing with gratitude to be able to share a few skin care secrets so you can achieve a perfectly radiant complexion in time for the holidays! Let’s get into it:
Tip #1: Hydrate inside and out.
Switching from a light lotion to a thicker moisturizer is a great way to keep your skin hydrated through the holiday season. Cooler, drier air can strip your skin of its moisture, causing flaky, dry patches on any exposed area of skin. Make moisturizing a key step in your skin care routine, as many times needed on the face, hands and body. In addition to coating your skin with a heavy ointment or cream, you can also improve your skin’s glow by hydrating on the inside. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day can help prevent dry skin and keep your skin healthy and vibrant.
Other ways to ward off dry skin include, avoiding long, hot showers, switching to less irritating skin care products, applying sunscreen daily and using a humidifier to restore moisture to the air and your skin.
Tip #2: Treat your skin to some TLC at Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine!
Take your skin care to the next level by treating your skin to advanced laser and clinical skin care treatments. Aesthetic treatments can reveal dramatic, lasting improvements to the health and beauty of skin. Here are a few ways you can get glowing before your next holiday outing:
- Laser skin rejuvenation. Flaunt smoother, younger-looking skin with two state-of-the-art laser skin treatments by Sciton®: Halo® and BBL® HERO™. Halo is the first of its kind, combining ablative and nonablative wavelengths into one fractional laser skin resurfacing device. As Halo prompts vibrant skin renewal, you’ll enjoy head-turning improvements to the tone and texture of your skin. BBL HERO on the other hand, uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to reverse years of sun damage and improve signs of aging on the face and larger areas of the body. This ideal “lunchtime” treatment can be performed in a matter of minutes, helping to diminish age spots, sunspots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and more with no downtime.
- Clinical skin care. Look vibrant at every age with clinically proven skin care treatments, including chemical peels and facials. Chemical peels are a great way to hit the refresh button on your complexion. By removing the outermost layer of dull, damaged skin cells, peels afford a wide range of improvements, including more even skin tone, smoother texture and diminished lines and wrinkles. You can also refresh and revitalize your skin with one of our results-driven clinical facials. Tailored to your skin’s exact needs, facials use a combination of medical-grade serums, exfoliating agents, steam and other advanced tools to target common concerns like dryness, blemishes, redness, hyperpigmentation and more.
Tip #3: Invest in medical-grade products.
To boost the results of your professional skin treatments, or to simply elevate your skin care regimen, we recommend physician-grade products time and time again. Why? Because they’re clinically proven to improve the appearance of common skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, uneven skin tone, dry skin, crepey skin and more. Plus, they’re formulated with high concentrations of active ingredients such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and peptides to help you achieve your specific skin care goals. We proudly carry a wide range of professional brands, including Alastin Skincare®, Belle Marin Rx, DefenAge® Skin Care, PCA Skin and EltaMD® sunscreen. Discover which products will best benefit your skin by scheduling your personal consultation with our team.
